Ascend Studios is proud to have the opportunity to complete exciting projects with our friends at Darden Headquarters. The Darden family of restaurants features some of the most recognizable and successful brands in full-service dining, with over 1700 restaurants across North America.

Darden Hall

As part of a renovation of a large meeting hall, our team installed a huge, 13′ x 6.5′ LED video wall, over 20 speakers and subwoofers, 4 wireless microphones and a rack full of advanced equipment to control it all.

The meeting hall can be split into two separate rooms, each with their own touchpanel and individual control. Audio sources and volume control are easily adjustable through our custom branded touchpanel interface.

Our team included several advanced presets that enable the Darden team to quickly select a video source for the LED wall and start the meeting. The presets will turn on the display, switch the video source and play background music; all from a single button press.

Our team included a media player with customized content playlists for each of Darden’s brands. We also included HDMI wall plates for a wired connection to the LED wall, as well as a wireless screen-sharing system, Blu-Ray Player and Cable Box.

Darden Cafe

During the Darden Cafe refresh our team installed several digital signage menu boards, an announcement board and a background music system. Each menu board has dynamic content that can be easily updated within seconds. The menu boards are fully automated and turn on and off at set times each day.

The background music system consists of several high quality speakers that are specifically programmed to sound great in the space.
