The Dedicated Theater

The best way to get the most out of your private home theater is still to install it in a dedicated room. The environment is specially designed to isolate light and sound for the best results. In this type of setting, we encourage you to go with the full cinema ensemble.

For your surround sound, incorporate Bowers & Wilkins C800 speakers (pictured above) throughout the space to immerse yourself in high-fidelity sound. When it comes to quality and value, a screen is the best option for a large theater video display. We recommend the Runco Signature Cinema DLP projector with HD capabilities and a Smart Lens System that always remembers the exact position of your screen. For your video display, go with a Stewart Filmscreen product that has motorized masking, which lets you adapt the screen to your video’ aspect ratio. This way you can transition from TV shows to movies seamlessly without getting stuck with a warped resolution or extra screen area.

How Can You Design the Perfect Home Theater for Your Next Project?

With the rise in quality home entertainment via Blu-Rays, media servers, streaming and cable, custom home theaters have become a popular request for many luxury homes. Whether it's a new construction or retrofit, for many builders and designers it can be difficult to find the balance between the technological requirements of a custom theater and the distinct style the clients want. This is why it's important to bring in a professional integrator for your next Austin, Texas project to better craft a space that meets all your clients' needs. Read on to find out how an expert integrator can help you build the perfect home theater.

Do a Thorough Initial Consultation

The first step is communicating with your clients to find out where the home theater will be installed. Once you have a space in mind, it's time to bring in a professional audio video integrator to gage the needs of the space. During this initial consultation it is important to take into account space limitations, light considerations, acoustics and preferred seating arrangements.

It is important that no electronic equipment be purchased before this stage, as the equipment needed could depend entirely on these details. Always build a home theater system to fit your space, not the other way around. After consultation, the integrator will work with you hand-in-hand throughout the installation process to ensure everything falls within your project's scope and budget.

A recent study by IHS Technology determined that by the year 2019, there will be an average of five connected devices in homes throughout the world. The trend has helped push the growth of the connected home, with the smart home automation market expected to be worth over $50 billion by 2020.

What do you want to control?

Though a smart home automation solution implies full control of your home, you can always choose the systems you want to include. Many people, for example, begin with whole home audio/video or smart security and eventually expand their systems to include lighting, shading, and temperature. Relative Home Systems designs a solution that lets you control what you want while remaining scalable---meaning you can easily add other subsystems when you decide to do so.
