Recreating the glory days of the cinema experience - Inside CI

Recreating the glory days of the cinema experience - Inside CI | Custom Integration | Scoop.it

Here at Inside CI we like to hit the road and find out just what the custom install industry is up to. This time travels took us to City Home Cinemas, based in London where we met CI industry veteran Graham Goodbun and Peter Walker. Talking to the pair it was soon clear they had a passion for bringing cinema into the home, with a level of detail that reminds you of the good old days.

“In 1984 it became necessary for me to find a fresh challenge and I decided to look for something new,” Walker told us. “I remembered an old closed down cinema and decided to see what I could do with it, if anything. When I entered the building, I fell in love with the place and felt sad that it had closed, so I set about leasing the cinema - and the more I looked at it, the more determined I became!

3D audio set to boom as DTS:X takes on Dolby Atmos - Inside CI

3D audio set to boom as DTS:X takes on Dolby Atmos - Inside CI | Custom Integration | Scoop.it

DTS has formally announced DTS:X, a next-generation, object-based sound technology that “replicates a real-world sound environment” both in the cinema and at home. What makes the DTS proposition different from rivals Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D is that there’s no prescribed speaker configuration or even a specific number of audio channels.

“Until recently, sound in movie theaters and in our homes has been dictated by a standardised speaker layout,” says Jon Kirchner, chairman and CEO of DTS. “Through the use of object-based audio, DTS:X is able to scale immersive soundtrack presentations across a wide range of playback systems, from efficient to extravagant, while staying true to the content creator’s vision. This approach delivers the most authentic three-dimensional audio experience ever.”

For installers, this means they have the flexibility to place speakers according to individual space and design requirements. For consumers, DTS:X promises the precision of object-based surround sound, without the complication of retro-fitting additional ceiling or upfiring speakers. Metadata-based spatial mapping renders the ideal 3D sound image to whatever speaker layout exists, including up-firing Dolby enabled Atmos speakers.

Why height is the missing dimension in sound - Inside CI

Why height is the missing dimension in sound - Inside CI | Custom Integration | Scoop.it

Wilfred Van Baelen is the founder and CEO of Auro Technologies, and the driving force behind Auro 3D, the three dimensional sound format that promises to inject new energy into the world of home theatre audio. Like Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D is designed to add additional immersion to the surround sound experience. Crucially though it has an early lead over its rival. The first home theatre processors with Auro 3D decoding are just starting to ship from Datasat Digital Entertainment (the RS20i processor and sibling LS10, pictured below) and there's apparently more hardware to come from Steinway Lyndorf, French AV manufacturer DMS and CAT (California Audio Technologies). Van Baelen (pictured above) says he's also signed deals with three major AVR brands that will deliver up to 100,000 AV receivers into the marketplace later this year. - See more at: http://www.insideci.co.uk/articles/why-height-is-the-missing-dimension-in-sound.aspx#sthash.RXKqyaME.dpuf

Best Practice: The Dangers of Over-Automation | HiddenWires | Custom Integration | Scoop.it

Whenever I discuss the above quote, the first thing that comes into people’s minds is the concept of ‘smart’ home automation – your house has anticipated your needs, leaving you to get on with the task at hand. Unfortunately, today’s systems are simply not intelligent enough to take account of the myriad variables that dictate our mood, our health, the environment around us and how we interact with others. System programming relies largely on conditional logic; if this, then that. Though we can introduce other inputs such as time of day, temperature and occupancy, these are too limited in scope to truly predict our needs.
