Gulfstream Park Features Kramer
  • HAMPTON, NJ-Kramer Electronics recently participated in an extensive HD video project at Gulfstream Park, a state-of-the-art horseracing and entertainment facility located in Hallandale, FL, is the prototype facility in owner Magna Entertainment's mission to restore thoroughbred racing to the top of the betting industry. While the park features amenities such as restaurants and luxury suites, the technological achievement was in its world-class audiovisual system, designed by system contractor Westbury National Show Systems.

Over 700 Kramer and Sierra Video products were used for the future-minded AV installation at Gulftream Park, a Florida horseracing and entertainment facility.
Installed over a three-month period, the AV system was designed to give patrons the upscale, exciting atmosphere of a Las Vegas casino. "We had a client with a great vision," said Brock McGinnis, sales manager of Westbury National. "We helped prepare them for the next 20 years technologically." Requirements such as satellite video conversion to computer graphics video, signal flow and signal management characterized the challenges of the proposed system.

With input from racetrack architects The McCasey Group and with White Radio, a Canadian audio and video product distributor, Westbury National specified Kramer Electronics and Sierra Video products for routing the high definition video throughout the three-story building and to outside displays. Over 700 Kramer and Sierra Video products, including matrix switchers, scalers, distribution amplifiers, twisted pair transmitters, and receivers were used for the project.

"We recommended Kramer and Sierra Video for this project, knowing their quality, durability and value proposition," said Serge Pieters, White Radio's National Product Manager for Video Products. "The race track was looking for a specific feature set, and Kramer and Sierra Video products fit the bill, outranking competitors in installation product variety and meeting nearly every application dead-on."
