FLUID SOUND:
THE LOT
ENTERTAINMENT
EXPERIENCE
Crestron control systems and touch screens play a vital
role at THE LOT's four entertainment centers.
By Alyssa Borelli
ENTERTAINMENT HUB THE LOT, located
in San Ramon, San Diego, La Jolla, and
Newport Beach, Calif. features an elevated
luxury entertainment experience with an
upscale restaurant, café, bar, movie theatre,
auditorium and more - all centered around
the theme of arts and culture.
The Project Scope
To align with its ultra-luxe aesthetic and
design and deliver a premium guest
experience, THE LOT needed to implement
the most sophisticated control technology
available in its various dining and entertainment
spaces. It was essential for all
locations to standardize on one control
technology platform to maintain a consistent,
intuitive user experience for employees
to easily manage all systems in the
spaces, from audio and video to lighting
and temperature.
Partnering with Fluid Sound
The IT team at THE LOT collaborated with
San Diego-based AV Integrator Fluid Sound
to deploy an all-encompassing Crestron
control solution at each location. Working
closely with the project architect and
interior design teams, Fluid Sound ensured
the technology was integrated into the
building aesthetic and adhered to THE
LOT's overall goals.
Using Technology to Create
the Ideal Ambiance
THE LOT's auditoriums are one of the
entertainment hubs' main attractions. They
provide a high-end movie theatre experience
with full food and beverage services.
They also serve a dual-purpose, as they can
be rented out for private events. Crestron
control systems provided the technology
backbone for each location, integrating full
management and control of video, audio,
HVAC, security, lighting, and more, which
allowed for future expansion. All auditoriums
have a master control location to
support movies and events.
When used for events, the intuitive
user interface running on Crestron touch
screens enables guests to book a single

auditorium or multiple rooms. Employees
can control all aspects of the room to
customize the space for each event. When
in use for a movie, employees can control
lighting to create the ideal ambiance.
Crestron touch screens are not only a
helpful solution for the management team,
but they also assist the cleaning crews, IT
teams, and general operations staff for any
type of event.
The Fluid Sound team designed a solution
that incorporated multiple commercial-grade
NEC displays for digital signage
posters at the individual theater entrances
and constructed a 3×3 video wall in the bar
area. NEC projectors were used in the ten
movie theater auditoriums and a Crestron
control system integrates all the venue's
audio, video, lighting, and HVAC. The
end user manages all systems from a mix
of hard-wired Crestron touch screens and
portable wireless Apple iPads.
Using AV-over-IP hardware from Just
Add Power, all video inputs can be routed
to any of the venue's video displays over a
