Unconventional Convention Center
By R. David Read

Vast Gaylord National Resort offers AV-infused amenities.

The new Gaylord Hotel & Convention Center is a glimmering beacon on the banks of the Potomac River just outside Washington DC.

The latest addition to Gaylord Entertainment’s hotel-resort offerings opened recently in the Washington DC area. In true Gaylord fashion, the Washington/National Harbor project is unique, yet keeps with Gaylord’s distinctive properties in Nashville (Opryland), Orlando (Palms) and Dallas/Ft. Worth (Texan).

Largest Non-Casino Hotel

Billed as the largest (non-casino) hotel and convention center on the eastern seaboard, the Washington National boasts 2000 rooms, an 18-story atrium and 650,000 square feet of convention/conference/exhibit space. The targeted market for this new property is the business/convention customer. To this end, no small amount of effort was put into providing the amenities that cater to that class of clientele. Audiovisual and information technology considerations were at the forefront.

The project assumed the “classic” form for new construction activities: That is, the AV design was prepared and documented by the Dallas-based consulting firm of Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon & Williams (WJHW); the project was let for competitive bid through traditional channels, i.e., GC-EC-AV contractor. The successful AV systems integrator was SPL (now AVI-SPL) of Columbia MD. The timeframe for completion was set at 18 months.

As the successful bidder, AVI-SPL was awarded a contract, handed a sheaf of documents, and told to prepare working drawings/submittals and start staging for work that included:

• installation of high-quality, intelligible public-address/music playback systems in all interior and appropriate exterior public spaces

• installation of sound-reinforcement systems in all conferencing facilities, including the divisible ballroom/exhibit spaces

• installation of lounge-quality audio and video systems in the entertainment areas

• installation of videoconferencing systems in designated conference rooms and hotel administrative areas

• installation of an area-wide IT network that would link all the elements into a cohesive whole

• installation of a suitable cabling infrastructure that would be usable by the in-house rental and staging company

• coordination with the architectural/stage lighting supplier for seamless presentation of audio/video/lighting control

• coordination with the show control provider to integrate the mechanical sequencing of visuals, i.e., fountain/light shows with audio/video elements

• provision and installation of home theater playback systems in six luxury suites

• interfacing with Gaylord’s in-house IT staff for data-AV networking provisions

• interfacing with the data/TV guest room supplier for shared service provisions.

Security and fire alarm systems were under the scope of another supplier.

Public Space AV Systems

In accordance with the owner’s dictates, the system specifications called for a high quality, high-density, zoned paging and music distribution system throughout the interior and exterior public spaces. This took the form of 44 full-sized, interconnected equipment racks strategically located in 11 equipment rooms scattered in and about the premises. To provide the necessary “audio horsepower,” the system uses 134 Lab.gruppen amplifiers to deliver 250,000 watts of power to the connected 2400 Tannoy loudspeakers. Each rack also contains the associated DSP networks to accept inputs from 499 custom-fabricated input panels, and provide the necessary audio processing.

To interlace this complex system, AVI-SPL installed a dedicated Cisco-based network that routes 672 channels of CobraNet audio, control data from 150 Crestron wallmount touchpanels and six web-based Crestron E-Control systems to the MediaMatrix DSP system. Additionally, Crestron control also integrates seamlessly with the lighting system to provide touchpanel recall of lighting presets.

Working with lighting system supplier Candela Controls and Gaylord’s IT staff, the entire system can be controlled area-wide by using PC tablet technology.

According to senior project engineer Jeff Vogt, several subcontractors augmented AVI-SPL’s labor force: Tech, Inc., of Lanham MD, provided field cable installation; Towson MD-based Nelson-White Systems provided field device termination services; and Wav Integrators, of Rockville MD, whose technicians performed termination at the rack equipment locations. Vogt offered, “These firms did an admirable job and, without them, [AVI-SPL] would have been hard pressed to complete the project within the allowable timeframe.”

This graphic elevation drawing puts the various elements of the property into perspective.

Ballroom/Conference Room Systems

Most of the ballroom/exhibit space and conferencing facilities are sited in a three-story adjacent structure joined to the hotel proper by an enclosed walkway. The lower level, three-football-field-sized exhibit space is divisible into four sections. Naturally, each section can be used independently or in a room-combined mode. Similarly, the two distinct ballroom areas can be used in either a combined or a decombined mode, thus allowing the property to be adapted to fit the needs of a particular group or function.

The 55 discrete, standalone meeting rooms were equipped with the necessary cabling infrastructure to support local AV presentations. Selected areas, i.e., boardrooms, administrative sales and staff conferencing rooms, were equipped with telepresence systems to facilitate AV conferencing situations.

Specifications (unless otherwise noted) excluded providing sourcing materials and equipment. To avoid having the property owner capitalize and maintain such equipment, responsibility for its provision was vested with Production Services AV Company (PSAV), the in-house AV staging and rental company.

Referencing the new facility, PSAV’s Victor Escobedo, facility manager for the Washington property, said, “PSAV is the onsite rental and staging company for all four of the Gaylord Hotels. I’ve been in the hotel/resort/convention/AV end of this business for upwards of 12 years, and this property is the most intricate and comprehensive facility with which I have ever been involved. At the onset of the project, we at PSAV were asked our ideas of what should and should not be a part of the specified AV/lighting systems. Consequently, a lot of what was included on our ‘wish list’ was incorporated into the design. The result, from an operational standpoint, is the most flexible and thorough infrastructure imaginable.

“By utilizing the multiple input panels and the built-in fiber and Cat5 cabling network, we can literally route and combine signal and control signals from practically any point on the property to virtually anywhere else. We have yet to find the need to pull in temporary cabling for any event.”

Escobedo further elaborated, “The designers and systems integrators involved were the most thorough and conscientious group of people with whom it has ever been my privilege to work.”

In addition to the core AV system, AVI-SPL installed standalone audio systems in four restaurants and six retail shops, as well as Relache, the hotel’s spa and fitness center. Vogt elaborated, “We provided presentation/audio conferencing systems for six sales rooms, two boardrooms and the hotel manager’s meeting room. In addition, six home-theater-style systems were installed in the luxury hotel suites.”

Large, Curved Videowall

The National Pastime Sports Bar features a 32-foot-wide by 9-foot-high curved videowall that is capable of displaying up to 12 discreet HD channels at any one time. This is made possible by videowall processing from Vista Systems’ Spyder, as well as warping and blending by 3D Perceptions’ CompactUTM. Video is projected by six projectiondesign F30+ SXGA projectors onto a custom Stewart Filmscreen AT3 screen. The videowall is complemented by a 10,000-watt JBL sound system in 7.1 surround by Lexicon, as well as 20 flat-panel displays from LG and Sharp located throughout the bar.

In Pose, Gaylord’s 19th-floor Ultra Lounge, which provides a panoramic view of the Washington skyline, AVI-SPL provided a sound system to rival Washington DC’s hottest nightclubs. EAW’s MK and SB series loudspeakers were selected for the main dance floor sound-reinforcement system, with additional sub-bass provided by eight NEXO CD12s, all driven by 60,000 watts of Lab.gruppen amplifiers. The front-end for this system is a high-tech DJ booth featuring Pioneer CDJ1000 players, Technics SL1210 MK5 turntables and a laptop computer running Serato ScratchLIVE software, all integrated via a Rane TTM57SL USB-equipped DJ mixer.

In each of six luxury suites, AVI-SPL was tasked with providing a high quality, home-theater-style AV system. Each suite boasts a Crestron system featuring an ST-1700C wireless touchpanel controlling a Denon V300 DVD player as well as the owner-furnished LG flat-panel displays with integrated LodgeNet HDTV receivers. For sound, the Yamaha YSP-800 provides virtual surround sound with a minimal visual impact. The low end is augmented by Tannoy’s in-wall subwoofer, the IW62 TS.

AV/Lighting/Show Control Interfaces

In what has become a hallmark at Gaylord properties, a nightly show-control, lighting, AV presentation extravagance centers around the central atrium fountain display. The combined, coordinated efforts of AV supplier AVI-SPL, lighting supplier Candela, and the motion control designer and supplier results in “ooohs and aaahs” from fascinated viewers.
By taking its cue from the time-controlled motion control system and its associated computer controller, the system handshakes with the AV and lighting system computers to create the varying lighting effects and accompanying audio playback that are synchronized to complement the dancing waters.

With the advent of today’s computer-control technology, integrating the various functions was basically a matter of writing the necessary codes to allow the various disciplines (motion control, lighting and audio) to communicate with each other in a reliable and consistent manner. [Very different from a system this writer was involved with many (pre-computer) days ago, when a New Orleans hotel attempted to implement a similar system. It took the form of hundreds of electro-mechanical relays controlling scads of solenoids. Needless to say, it was not too successful and required untold hours of maintenance. The owner soon abandoned the project.]

Selected conference and hotel meeting rooms are equipped with full-scale telepresence systems.

Lighting

Candela Controls’ scope of work included installation of sophisticated architectural and specialty show-room lighting control and instruments. This included virtually all public spaces, with the exception of guest rooms and guest floor corridors. Hence, Candela Controls outfitted the four ballrooms, 55 meeting rooms, two boardrooms, three restaurants, the sports bar, the Pose Ultra Lounge, spa and salon, as well as all the lobby, pre-function areas. Additionally, lighting effects were installed in some exterior locations and also used to highlight the effect of the Atrium fountain.

To accomplish all of this, Candela installed 56 dimmer racks, five standalone dimmer panels, and control and processing racks, along with area-wide signal distribution—all of which involved almost 1000 connection points. More than 400 color-changing LED fixtures were utilized in the ballrooms and to highlight the architectural elements on the exterior façade and corners of the building.

For the 19th floor Pose Ultra Lounge, Candela provided six High End Systems DL2 digital lighting fixtures, 36 Martin automated lighting instruments and, as Bill Ellis of Candela remarked, “numerous color-changing LED fixtures for architectural emphasis.” To blend the visual aspects together, video routing is provided and coordinated through the lighting system controllers.

When Chess McKinney, Gaylord’s director of project technology, was asked to comment, his response was, “I couldn’t have asked for a more competent or dedicated group of designers and systems integrators.” He also expressed appreciation to the equipment suppliers for the cooperation they provided when modifications were required to fit the project’s specific needs

McKinney noted that he comes from an IT background and he is astounded at how combined AV-IT systems are coming together to satisfy the needs of complex networks in spaces such as the Gaylord National.

“To be able to walk around the site and adjust lighting, AV systems and motion control aspects from a tablet PC is simply phenomenal,” he offered. “I can sit in my office in Nashville and diagnose and monitor performance to cope with unusual circumstances. It is truly a successfully integrated AV-IT computer-controlled network.”
 

AVI-SPL
The recent AVI and SPL merger has created what is reputed to be the largest AV systems integrator in North America. With more than 1200 employees, privately held Tampa FL-based AVI-SPL has 40 offices across the US, with additional offices in Mexico and Dubai.

Jeff Vogt, chief project engineer for the Gaylord Washington-National project, cited the following individuals for their efforts in bringing the project online within the stated budget and time frame: George Douglass, account sales manager; Skip Warrington, senior project manager; Tom Fortwengler, project manager; Alex Vasquez, PM/engineer; LD Parker, PM/engineer; Henry Hsu, senior engineer/programmer; and Dustin Main, senior technician.

Vogt noted, “These individuals, along with our fine group of subcontractors, made completion of this project a profitable reality.”

 

WJHW Consultants
The Dallas TX-based acoustical consulting firm of Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon & Williams is well known for its design work involving stadiums and arenas. Often overlooked is the firm’s involvement in numerous non-sports-related projects. The Gaylord property in Washington DC marks WJHW’s second major project for this client. WJHW was also the acoustical consultant and principal AV designer for Gaylord’s hotel-resort property located in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Airport area.

A Gaylord spokesperson commented, “We are extremely pleased with WJHW’s design work on the Washington National and our other ongoing projects.”

 

Candela Controls Inc.
In business since 1999, Candela Controls, Inc., is a specialty lighting systems integrator and contractor located in Central Florida. The company has provided lighting control and specialty lighting for a range of venues across the US and Canada, including theme parks, museums, hotel and convention centers, casinos, houses of worship and theaters. In addition to the current Gaylord Washington location, other clients include SeaWorld of Florida, the New World of Coke Museum, House of Blues, Borgata Hotel and Casino, and Northland Community Church.
