Brea, CA, June 22nd, 2006 — Moxa Technologies, Inc contributed Serial to Ethernet Device Servers NPort 5610 to an audio-visual project that received a 2006 ARCHI-TECH AV Award. The winning project was Lake of Dreams in the Wynn, Las Vegas, which was created by SPL Integrated Solutions. This audio and video performance is unlike any other. By day, the area appears to be a 19,000-square-foot lake surrounded by a waterfall on a mountain. By night, the architectural landscape becomes a surface for video projection. Four different shows include music, lighting, projection onto the waterfall, projection on a 24-foot-high fiberglass head that rises out of the lake in 3 seconds, projection on a 27-foot-high concave disk that rises above the waterfall, and two 38-foot-high robotic puppets. The judges were awestruck by this project. One judge, echoing the sentiment of others, said, “This was by far above everybody else’s.” Another called it a “great model of collaboration.”ARCHI-TECH magazine and InfoComm International announced that seven audiovisual design firms specializing in AV installations received a 2006 ARCHI-TECH AV Award.
