Electrosonic brought two of The Discovery District’s restaurant areas to life with technology that sets new standards in guest experience. In addition to designing the audio, video, control and ICT solution, Electrosonic worked with AT&T and Gensler through the build and integration phases to ensure the design intent was maintained.
The first of these two restaurants is the Jaxon Texas Kitchen, comprised of an indoor restaurant and outdoor Beer Garden, visually linked by LED technology that flows across architectural trellises.
Guests can enjoy sports, bands performing on an outdoor stage or video streamed from other areas of The District on 85-inch displays in Jaxon’s event space or watch content on The Media Wall on the adjacent building. Outdoor and indoor displays with foreground music speakers heighten the experience and create a consistently lively atmosphere. On the second floor is a conference and banquet area that has both indoor and outdoor seating and facilities for small to medium catered events with background audio and displays for presentations.
The 2-story food hall called ‘The Exchange’ accommodates 16 eateries and 2 bars. There are zoned speakers and 75-inch displays where guests can enjoy streamed content, as well as digital signage and menu boards.
The audio systems deliver a curated and inviting soundscape, interconnected to the rest of The District. This allows the AT&T team to play separate tracks or the same audio across the entire District. Video is also interconnected so content can be routed between a massive outdoor display known as The Media Wall and the monitors in both Jaxon and The Exchange.
