Home Cinema Rooms
& Media Spaces
Dedicated Home Cinema Rooms
- A dark room. That means a better picture and fewer distractions.
- May have rows of seating, to allow for more people.
- Always features a projector and screen – to get the sizes needed.
- Often in 2.35:1 ‘cinemascope’ widescreen.
- When you walk in, it feels like a cinema.
We must follow Cinema Design rules – guidelines that have evolved over the years for designing cinema spaces.
That means careful calculations for:
Too wide and you can’t see the edges; too narrow just isn’t cinema.
Can everyone see properly, and view comfortably?
SOUND LEVEL (SPL)
Large rooms need a lot more power just to get the right levels.
Bass needs to be consistent through the listening area. To do that, we need subwoofers – in pairs.
We calculate all this and more in advance, from the room dimensions and desired size of audience – giving you optimal performance.
Mixed-use Media Spaces
- Light and airy – or dark and intimate.
- No rows or tiered seating
- A mixed-purpose, social space
- May have a projection system or flat-panel display – or both.
All the quality considerations are exactly the same – it’s no good if bass is uneven, some people can’t see, the levels are wrong, or speakers are in the wrong place.
For a memorable, convincing cinema experience, performance matters.
