Okada Manila Case Study
Okada Manila Casino wins big with state-of-the-art Exterity IP video system
Exterity’s IP video system delivers high-quality digital signage content directly to Okada Manila Casino’s gaming machines and TV screens throughout its casino floor, with quality and reliability guaranteed 24 hours a day.
Okada Manila is a five-star integrated resort and casino carved into 44 hectares of Manila Bay’s picturesque oceanfront. The hotel boasts 993 luxury suites and villas, each furnished with world-class amenities, state-of-the-art technology, and spectacular views of the Manila Bay or The Fountain.
Situated in the heart of Entertainment City, the Okada Manila casino provides guests with a unique location to play for the biggest progressive jackpot in the country. It offers the best of traditional table games like Baccarat, Poker, Roulette and Craps, plus more than 3,000 electronic gaming machines — from beloved classics to the hottest new games.
As a world-class destination that combines advanced technology with deluxe amenities, Okada Manila wanted to offer cuttingedge video entertainment throughout its property. With a 24-hour a day operation catering for thousands of international visitors, the resort required a reliable video solution that could deliver digital signage content to each of its 3000 electronic gaming machines and 204 TV screens on both the casino floor and public spaces.
With a mix of static, dynamic and live video content, the solution needed to be flexible enough to interface with a wide range of display types and aspect ratios whilst being easy to manage for operators, to make sure the right content, branding, wayfinding or messaging gets to the right machine, or screen, at exactly the right time..
Okada Manila chose Exterity for its low latency, high picture quality, easy-to-use and reliable IP video system. The centrally-managed solution enables the seamless distribution of promotions and jackpot information on each of the electronic gaming machines. This ensures guests have access to relevant content and branding at exactly the right time. The installation includes Exterity’s AvediaServer central management system, AvediaStream HDMI Encoders and AvediaStream Media Players.
Local technology integrator All Visual & Lights Systems (AVLS), was instrumental in securing the partnership with Exterity, and undertook full testing and Proof of Concept (PoC) with the client to ensure the solution delivered exactly what was expected.
A spokesperson for AVLS said: “The flexibility of Exterity technology enabled us to deliver content to a wide range of end-point devices whilst retaining image and video quality. Exterity’s feature-rich, fully configurable IP video application means the hotel can now easily create and deliver content to multiple screens across the casino, greatly enhancing its guests’ experience.”
“The Casino at Okada Manila is the newest, most dynamic casino in Entertainment City, and we wanted an AV solution that reflected our commitment to the guest experience. The Exterity IP system has provided us with a dependable and highquality solution that positions us at a world-class resort at the forefront of technology”
The solution enables the casino to display dynamic, streaming and scheduled content on any of the hundreds of connected screens including standard TVs, SmartTVs, computer screens, mobile devices and thin clients as required.
