Hugh Jackman & Anne HathawaySHURE UR1M GOES UNSEEN, DELIVERS BIG SOUND AT 81ST ACADEMY AWARDS

NILES, IL, March 12, 2009 — The 81st Academy Awards kicked off on a comedic note, with host Hugh Jackman joking that a recessionary budget had forced the cancellation of an elaborate opening number.

Our main challenge was the limited size of the room. Our client wanted the maximum screen size solely for HD contents in a 20ft x 12ft room in the basement with concrete walls. The control system needed to be user-friendly and the home theater needed to have three rows of seating with bass shakers and several lighting theme options. The importance of acoustical treatment was explained to our client and it was agreed to emphasize on this issue for achieving decent sound quality with wall mounted speakers. (more…)
