Home cinema installation

Automated Cheshire Audio Visual Installation

This basement home cinema came about as a recommendation from an architect on another project as the client had requested the engagement of a home cinema specialist to convert this room within a disused part of their house. Being a basement, this was the ideal environment (with very little ambient light) for us to achieve their request to an exceptional standard. The client provided an initial brief, based on having a young family, so our design team developed this into what we see today.

Their home now boasts a bespoke, high specification home cinema that has not disappointed. Working closely with the architect and builders who specialise in basement conversions and tanking, we provided and end-to-end service, from concept to completion including specification and supply of technology and support of the technology.

Every step of the project was managed through us, ensuring that the finished home cinema was as the client envisaged and installed to the correct standard. The lighting design was realised in such a way that the space was made functional and complements the décor. The automation aspects of the home cinema were built off-site; assembled, tested and programmed to ensure a smooth and long product life. The overall result is a home cinema that works for the clients’ family and provides them with an exceptional room to enjoy and entertain themselves when they want to unwind and watch the latest Blu Ray.

This home cinema was specified with a top of the range JVC 4K UHD projector, high performance Onkyo AV receiver, extraordinary speakers from Triad providing an immersive 7.2 surround experience and a remarkable automation system by Control4 for full control of the room. From the second you enter the room, using the Control4 light switch, the room springs into life, initialising all the equipment whilst you get comfortable. Once sat down, you can select Sky, Blu Ray, Apple TV or a games console and once selected, the lights automatically dim via the remote …

The finished article contains:

  • Control4 lighting control system provides different scenes depending on usage of the room, allow full control of the circuits and light levels
  • Video sources distributed via the Onkyo AV receiver located within the equipment rack
  • A beautiful room to take some time out, sit and enjoy watching either a thrilling film or relax whilst listening to some music powered by an outstanding 7.2 surround sound system
  • Control of all the above features, and more, is provided with the clients’ phones and a Control4 system remote
