Vintage-style Home Cinema wins European Award
Issued: 6th July 2016
It has just been announced that Smart homes technology specialists Cyberhomes have won this year’s CEDIA Award for ‘Best Home Cinema over £100,000’.
The award recognises the technical excellence of a London home cinema room that was designed, built and delivered by Cyberhomes. The interior design of the room was just as important as the technology as the homeowner wanted to recreate the feel of the old cinemas he enjoyed visiting as a child.
Cyberhomes Director Ion Smith said: “The client had a very specific brief about how the cinema room should look; the challenge for us was to deliver the latest in home cinema technology whilst retaining the vintage look. We were able to incorporate the very latest 4K resolution projector technology and Dolby® Atmos™ surround sound. The room was fully acoustically treated to ensure all the equipment performs at its maximum potential and acoustically-transparent fabrics keep all the speakers out of sight.”
Cyberhomes Director Andy Mack said: “We’re all really proud of this project at Cyberhomes, and for it to be recognised by CEDIA as an ‘exceptional design’ is very rewarding.”
Cyberhomes work closely with clients, architects, developers, interior designers and M&E consultants from the very start, wherever possible, to integrate control and AV systems with the overall building design and performance. The Cyberhomes founders have a background in live broadcast studio technology for the BBC and take the same rigorous approach with the equipment, cabling and software behind home automation projects. AV racks are built and tested at Cyberhomes’ rack building facility in Thame and all the wiring looms created in a controlled environment before installation.
