The master bedroom features two TV's: one for the sitting area, and one that drops out of the ceiling with a motorized lift.
This home features Lutron lighting control, HAI security and HVAC, distributed audio and video and centralized equipment. We cleaned up miles of wiring, reorganized and reprogrammed the entire system after several years of other companies failed attempts to get the system working. We created 3 iPad interfaces with custom programming that run the entire home via the RTI control system. The iPads have Launchport magnetic wall mounts with inductive charging and there's one on each floor.
The home has 14 TVs and a projection theater that can access any of the satellite receivers, blu-ray player, security cameras, and audio sources located in the basement equipment racks. The intuitive RTI control system provides feedback to the user letting them know which sources are in use elsewhere in the home and which sources are available.
We designed and installed this basement projection theater in Boulder. Featuring a 120" acoustically transparent screen so that the front left, right, and center speakers can be placed at the ideal listening level directly behind the screen. It has 7.1 channel surround sound and 4K UHD video from the JVC DLA-RS4910 with Eshift3 technology.
We added 120 sqft of acoustical treatment to the room to obtain an ideal reverb time and create the unique aesthetic wall art. The micro suede panels were custom made to our specifications by ATS acoustics and are available in 23 fabric styles and colors or can be built with customer supplied fabric for the ultimate in design flexibility.
We added RGBW LED strips behind the panels that are controlled from the ProControl Pro24r universal remote so the homeowner can choose differerent colors and adjust the brightness easily. All of the source and control equipment is located out of sight in the mechanical room.
BEFORE: the room was under-utilized with a small flat-screen and training bike.
AFTER: the family loves their new custom theater and use it almost every night.
We updated this basement theater with the JVC DLA-RS4910 reference series projector, lighting control, and ProControl Pro24r universal remote. The projector accepts native 4K content and uses their proprietary Eshift3 technology to create the stunning image seen here on a 106" screen. This is a great option for displaying 1080p and UHD content for half the cost of the next closet 4K projector.
The theater features stadium style second row seating with powered leather recliners, Yamaha receiver, Boston acoustics 7.1 channel surround, and OPPO BDP-103D high end blu-ray player.
We recently completed this av installation in a new build for Morningstar Homes. The home features Lutron RadioRa2 lighting control, SONOS whole-home audio with Totem Acoustic in-ceiling speakers, and structured wiring for high-speed network and cable systems with upgraded wifi access points.
The family room has a 60" Samsung 4K UHDTV and SONOS 5.1 channel surround system utilizing their PLAYBAR, SUB, and a CONNECT:AMP connected to a pair of Totem Acoustic in-ceiling speakers. Control of the av systems and lighting control is accomplished via an RTI T2X universal controller and iOS apps.
All of the equipment is hidden out of site in a rack that can pull out and rotate for ease of access and service. Sources include Xfinity X3 DVR client, Blu-ray Disc, and Apple TV. SONOS media players were an ideal choice for this home because they use digital amplifiers which run cooler, use less energy, and are more efficient than traditional analog amplifiers.
We installed this 5.1 channel surround sound system using wall mounted Mites from Totem Acoustic. The system was setup with 14/4 speaker wire for Bi-wiring to maximize fidelity from this high performance system. All the wiring was fished through the mechanical room below the living room for clean looks. The source equipment is an OPPO BDP-103D, Behringer 15 channel graphic EQ, Marantz AV7701 surround reciever, Outlaw audio model 5000 5 channel amp, and Tributaries interconnects. The display is a Panasonic 58" plasma on articulating dual arm mount.
In the family room we added a 60" Samsung 4K ultra HDTV, and SONOS Playbar with wireless sub and in-ceiling surround speakers. Shutze Studio built a custom cabinet to hide the TiVo, Apple TV, and CONNECT:AMPs running the other zones of audio throughout the house.
The master bedroom features a plasma over the fireplace and another PLAYBAR, TiVo, and Apple TV remotely located and controlled via IR repeater.
The master suite had a mess of wiring and unsuited equipment.
We cleaned up the audio and video wiring for the master suite and reduced the equipment needed with more SONOS audio products.
We installed 2 zones of SONOS home audio in this north Boulder home updating their sound system. We added a 5 channel wireless surround sound system to the living room with the SONOS Playbar and a pair of Play:1's for rear speakers. Pictured is a stereo pair of Play:3's for the sunroom. The zones can be grouped together through the intuitive user interface on iOS and android devices. We removed a substantial mess of old wiring and obsolete equipment to the homeowners delight.
We helped eTown Hall install miles worth of Cat6a, fiber optic, digital coax, and balanced audio wiring to facilitate recording and broadcast of live events held at the venue.
We installed complex bundles of wiring through multiple conduit runs linking the stage, hall, front of house, ticket booth, video production and recording studio.
We were called in to provide a simple, cost effective solution to this homeowners failing Control4 system. We removed the control processor, multiple room boxes, audio matrix, outdated component video matrix, and tons of obsolete wiring. We replaced it with SONOS connect music players, A ProControl universal remote for the media room, and localized DirecTV boxes for the other 3 TVs in the home. The homeowners are overjoyed with the simplicity, cleanliness, and superior function of the new system.
This is what the system looked like before we arrived and is unfortunately what "the other guys" left them with.
This basement game room was retro-fitted with a new projection theater featuring a 103" high contrast CinemaScope screen and 7.1ch surround sound. Even though the ceiling is low at only 7' we were still able to provide the large image the homeowner wanted by utilizing the wider 2.35:1 aspect ratio screen.
The projector is the panasonic PT-AE8000 that will automatically detect 16:9 or 2.35:1 content and zoom in or out to fill the screen appropriately. The audio is driven by the Onkyo TX-NR838 4K compatible reciever with speakers from Episode and Atlantic Technology. The whole system is intuitively controlled via the ProControl Pro24r universal remote.
All the wiring was able to be hidden in the walls and ceiling with no patching required.
