BEST HOME CINEMA INSTALLATION OVER £100,000 (125,000 EUROS) | 2009
Big is indeed better with this, the winner of the over £100,000 category. A commercial-grade system delivered within a spectacular property in Lahore, Pakistan, this is home cinema on a scale rarely seen and was a ‘stand-out’ winner for the judges.‘I don’t want a home cinema; I want a cinema in my home” said the client and our teame delivered a solution that celebrates the golden age. The 3,400 square feet cinema certainly rivals the very best commercial cinemas in terms of AV performance and ambiance. An essay to use Creston system allows full control and operation without the need for a dedicated projectionist, while a D-Cine Premiere DP90 2K digital cinema projector by Barco and a curved screen provide for a breathtaking image and a truly immersive movie experience. The front speakers and subwoofers have been positioned behind the perforated screen whilst a Tannoy Vnet active speaker system, fed through a Meridian 861 surround sound processor, provides the level of sound quality required to do justice to the visual set-up. The AV system is complemented by a Kaledescape movie server which delivers easy access to the complete library and an excellent picture quality through a 1080p movie player. The cinema boasts its own, dedicated control room which has been made a separate AC zone to ensure reliability despite outside temperatures of over 122°F !
