Norfolk, VA

Located on the Elizabeth River in Downtown Norfolk, The Waterside marketplace originally opened in 1983. Over the years it has experienced quite a bit of change with one of the most drastic renovations happening in 2017 as Waterside District by the Cordish Companies.

This renovation included a major facelift and brought a variety of dining and entertainment including the Bluemoon TapHouse, Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse and more. Along with the new eating and event space came new and exciting technology that Vicom provided.

Audio and Video is routed to over 80 displays and 300 indoor and outdoor speakers.

This technology included Audio and Video ran over an Extreme network for AVB (Audio Video Bridging) with a fiber network with CAT6 copper handoffs to AV equipment including over 80 displays and 300 speakers indoors and outdoors throughout the facility. Additionally, Vicom installed a large LED video wall in the main cafeteria accompanied by a Danley loudspeaker rig for live music and lighting and DJ rigs. A Crestron system controls all the AV distributed systems, including the Cox / DirecTV channel manipulation. Aesthetics were key for this project so the installation of all the equipment had to be clean and efficient. An aggressive timeline for the construction meant that the entire system needed to be installed and functional within just a couple of months.




Vicom installed a large LED video wall in the main cafetira accompanied by a Danley Loudspeaker rig.
