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. Left to create his own instead, the singing and dancing relied on cardboard set pieces, lawn chairs, and other yard sale props, put together with good effect to parody the films garnering the night’s award nominations.

1. Synopsis describing the project goals, special features, or nuances.

Undertaking the design and construction of this home theater was challenging. Our ultimate outcome for this project was to complete it on time and within the given budget. 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…)

The result is the ASI5416, a linear PCI sound card with these features removed, resulting in a significantly lower price point. (more…)
