Montecito Club Makes a Hole in One With Just Add Power’s Ultra HD Over IP Platform in Upgraded Amenities

BACKGROUND

In March 2019, the Montecito Club in Santa Barbara, California, reopened after a three-and-a-half-year, $75 million renovation. In addition to a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, the 101-year-old private golf and social club upgraded its amenities to the 21st century with a new 6,500-square-foot fitness center, state-of-the-art screening room and movie theater, AMF Bowling Alley, outdoor theater, men’s and women’s lounges, and much more.

In addition, the Club has been outfitted with displays ranging from 43 inches to a whopping 85 inches across all areas — from the Pro Shop and members’ lounges to the pool and tennis court — as well as two Vivitek DU8090Z laser projectors. Installed by Central Coast Audio Visual, each display plays out live sports and other content from its own DirecTV receiver. Two Apple TVs are shared among the displays for streaming movies, while a digital signage PC allows the Club to promote member events and provide leader boards for ongoing golf tournaments. 

THE CHALLENGE

With details like old-growth oak floors, hand-carved African mahogany doors, and Venetian plaster ceilings, a luxurious design is a central element to the Montecito Club experience. For the Club’s owner, it was important that the new displays didn’t detract from its elegant style. Each needed to be mounted cleanly on the wall, with no gap or any source equipment cluttering the space. To achieve this, all sources for the displays scattered across the massive property would need to be located remotely in one centralized location. This made cost-effective and reliable video distribution a critical aspect of the project. To provide it, Central Coast Audio Visual turned to Just Add Power (J+P).

“We explored using another solution at the Montecito Club, but only the Just Add Power platform offered such exceptional performance and reliability at a fair price point,” said Chris Wilson, president of Central Coast Audio Visual. “In addition, Just Add Power offered one more critical advantage to this installation: simple scalability. During construction, the scope of the project continued to expand, and without being limited to a specific source or display count, we were able to easily accommodate that growth.”
