2007 CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles Awards Entry: Best Large Home Theater, Level II: $98,500 – $115,000

The client came to us wanting to re-create the experience of their childhood theater-going days aesthetically, while providing a cutting edge visual and aural viewing experience. The control system needed to be simple to operate and visually uncluttered due to the physical limitations of the clients.

A Control4 system was chosen for the user interface, utilizing a 10.5in. color touchscreen that provides the client with onscreen music, movie, and broadcast content management. In addition, the system interfaces with whole-house security, lighting, and audio systems providing a singular GUI for the clients.

Acoustic design and treatment was custom designed with assistance by Acoustic Innovations, modeled on the “Grand” theater. In addition to the absorbative panels on the walls, sound abatement insulation was installed above the star-field ceiling.

Audio calibration was performed using audio controls, RTA, and a sound pressure level meter measuring the theater at 96dB SPL “A” weighted.
