Resorts World Catskills is a casino and resort in Kiamesha Lake, New York that opened on February 8, 2018 and is owned and operated by Empire Resorts. It was built on the former site of the Concord Hotel and features 100,000 square feet of gaming space and an 18-story hotel tower.
Selected to work with leading architects JCJ Architecture, SACO transformed their initial design to reality by using its innovative Shockwave Direct View V-Stick S to deliver uninterrupted lines of light. The entire system’s content was created by SACO’s media division, SACO Media Collective, and is controlled by the SACO Switch App, a convenient mobile application that is easy to use and allows for smooth and elegant high-res lighting movement effects and colours.
