Indoor & Outdoor Crestron Automation
We did the design and installation of this Crestron A/V system for the original owner, who loved the system. His wife told us, “We really didn’t understand all the things the system would do when we bought it, and now that it’s done – it’s beyond our imagination!” They sold the house a short time after having built it. The new owner loved the system and wanted more, so we upgraded the existing system, which is easy to do with Crestron. About a year later, he added several more TVs and decided to turn the exercise room into a home theater.
The theater has an anamorphic ultra wide screen and projector (2.35:1 vs 1.78:1). When watching wide screen movies on a standard HDTV, movies are letterboxed with black bars above and below the picture and you lose 1/3 of the resolution and brightness of your display. The anamorphic system does away with the bars and provides full brightness and resolution!
We also did a full acoustic design and installed acoustic walls, motorized theater seats, tiered seating, lighting and more. The 9.2 channel system has speakers hidden behind the fabric panels. The 4 subwoofers alone have 3200 watts of power. The electronics are all Marantz with an Apple TV and Apple Mac Mini for web browsing. We also installed Lutron lighting and motorized shades throughout.
