Wisconsin’s Oneida Casino Scores Big with AV over IP Upgrade

The Oneida Casino, located in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is the state’s premier gaming entertainment destination with a variety of slots, table games, poker, bingo and a sportsbook. It’s also the official casino of the Green Bay Packers.

In November 2021, casino management undertook a renovation of the sportsbook, which included creating a state-of-the-art AV system. For this project, Oneida tapped Scott Tomashek of Camera Corner Connecting Point (CCCP), Green Bay, to do the work but within a tight timeframe, requiring that the venue be ready in two months for the Super Bowl.

The system configuration they selected called for more than 80 monitors arranged in video wall groups (3x2, 4x4 and 5x3) and as single displays to deliver the day’s games, as well as races, to visitors. Tomashek and his team deployed ZeeVee ZyPer4K AV over IP (AVoIP) encoders and decoders for the project based on their ability to reliably deliver uncompressed 4K content with near zero latency. Add to this, ZeeVee was able to meet the tight timeline for delivery – no small feat in a period of widely reported supply chain disruptions.

ZeeVee’s SDVoE AVoIP ZyPer4K encoders and decoders, in conjunction with the ZyPer Management Platform, eliminated the need for an expensive 128x128 standard matrix. This solution gave CCCP the ability to connect 16 inputs from various sources to 80 Samsung and Sony monitors via Netgear M4300-96 network switches and provide seamless system operation with a Crestron VC-4-PC-3 control system processor and XPanel. Going forward, the facility will be able to add any number of additional inputs and outputs as its AV content distribution needs grow.

Another major benefit of the ZyPer4K gear is that it enables the Oneida Casino staff to do advanced window processing to create ‘multiviews’ on individual monitors, as well as to display one channel across multiple monitors, without the need for separate video processors. This represented considerable savings in hardware installation costs.

“As both an IT and AV equipment and service provider, CCCP knew that ZeeVee’s video over IP solution fit very well with our expertise,” said Tomashek. “Equally important, Oneida and CCCP have worked on several projects before and have a very strong relationship. We knew we could trust ZeeVee with this important customer.”

In February 2022, Super Bowl LVI was played at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. featuring the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals. Patrons of the Oneida Casino were able to view the close match winding up with a Rams 23 to 20 win. The new AV over IP system performed as promised!


January 30 – February 2: ZeeVee will showcase its industry flagship ZyPer4K SDVoE encoders and decoders for 10Gb networks, as well as its new AV over IP encoder for 1Gb networks with built-in ZyPer Management Platform (ZMP) capabilities at ISE 2024 (Booth 5D240). This newest encoder is the first to include a comprehensive onboard management and security interface.
