The Maidstone-based AV experts chose the Optoma HD50 1080p projector. This Full 3D 1080p has two HDMI inputs, which combined with the 1.5x zoom and vertical lens shift gave real flexibility in installation.
The HD50 uses PureMotion frame-interpolation technology. This advanced motion control processing eliminates motion blurring or image judder, even in high-speed action films or fast-paced sports. It is also engineered with a sophisticated colour management system that displays accurate colours and allows the user to fine-tune the colour settings to the Rec. 709 standard for optimal precision. The projector’s Dynamic Black Technology gives added depth to the image by smoothly adjusting the lamp output, based on the brightness information of each frame. This makes bright scenes appear crisp and clear, while dark scenes remain detailed with deep blacks and exceptional light and shade detail.
Home Media Ltd specified a Projecta fixed screen with acoustically transparent screen material, allowing for PMC Wafer 1 in-wall speakers to be mounted inside the framework of the screen.
Two JL Audio D110 subwoofers were used to provide depth to the soundstage and to underpin the three (LCR) PMC speakers. KEF Ci200QR in-ceiling speakers were installed as rear channel speakers and painted black to blend with the ceiling for a subtle look. Cables were fed into the wall cavity, exiting the wall behind the amplifier.
At the heart of the home cinema system is a Yamaha RX-A1050 AV Receiver and Yamaha BD-A1040 Blu-ray Player. A SKY HD satellite receiver and X-Box One complete the system to provide a complete entertainment solution.
A programmable touch screen remote control has been configured to enable all family members to operate the system with ease. For example, one button on the colour touch screen is programmed to carry out numerous commands that turn the system on and off.
