Home cinema

The term home cinema is most often identified with a sound system. If we want to achieve real cinematic conditions, we must also take into account such factors as: selection of appropriate finishing materials, lighting, cabling, control, screen, projector or cinema seats. What is most important, however, is the accurate planning of the audio-video installation and the correct acoustic adaptation. This last aspect is particularly important in the reception of a film soundtrack.

Listening rooms

Interior acoustics are a series of physical phenomena that cannot be recreated by simply purchasing better audio equipment. Objective acoustic parameters such as frequency characteristics, reverberation time and clarity of sound have a direct impact on the subjective perception of music, which we perceive as intimacy, vividness, spatiality, clarity and warmness. Proper acoustic adaptation brings us closer to enjoying what the sound engineer in the recording studio or the concert performer desires to transmit, in the comfort of our own homes.

Outdoor cinema

Outdoor events are not only a great way to spend a summer evening with friends, but also an ideal way to promote your own brand or city. When organizing outdoor cinemas, we provide rental, purchase and installation of equipment, including projectors with high brightness, large-format screens resistant to weather conditions or professional sound systems. Our team will advise you on proven solutions, taking into account the planned number of participants, weather, organizational possibilities and the budget of the event.

Commercial cinema

The construction of a commercial cinema is a big undertaking, both from the design and the executive side. We offer a range of comprehensive services including measurement, acoustic, electroacoustic and architectural design, consultancy and supervision over the implementation of works. We provide the selection of necessary equipment for cinema halls – sound system, projectors, screens, acoustic linings, insulating materials, cinema seats, curtains as well as automation and control systems.

Spherical cinema (3D)

The image in the spherical cinema is displayed on a semi-circular screen using special high resolution projectors that work synchronously. The technology allows you to achieve a 3D effect without the need to put on glasses. The curvature of the screen translates into widening the field of view, which enhances the impression of the virtual reality that surrounds us. Spherical cinema halls are used in technology parks, planetariums or large simulators. We execute acoustic and electroacoustic projects of such facilities.

Equipment


Complete audiovisual systems.

Furniture AV

We specialize in unusual arrangements, which is why designing and making custom furniture has become a part of our activity. We produce, among others cinema furniture, anti-vibration tables, cabinets for audio-video equipment, shelves for vinyl records or CDs. We have our own machine park, including CNC milling machines, laser plotters, saws, presses, which is why our possibilities are virtually limitless.

Cinema lighting

To create the right atmosphere for watching movies or listening to music, we should make sure that the room is appropriately lightened or darkened. Adjustable light intensity and remote control will be helpful in achieving it. Moreover, decorative LED strips, spot lighting of details, creating luminous scenes or special curtains for windows will welcome you into the world of your favorite movie or concert show.

Multiroom

Do you want your favorite music or film to be available from anywhere in your home? Thanks to modern multi-room solutions, you can integrate all screens and speakers and control them using a tablet or phone. In each zone, we can independently listen to other music or watch a different movie. We plan and program our systems ourselves so that we can best adapt the functionality and service to your individual needs.

Control system

We design advanced installations of building automation which is based, among others on an open KNX system. It enables the integration of many independent installations and devices into one whole, including lighting, heating, air conditioning, audio-video, alarm, monitoring and automatic closing of windows and doors. While implementing our projects, we make sure that each installation is easy to use and gives the possibility of expansion and configuration at any time.

There is only a certain degree to which audio equipment is responsible for sound quality. The interior acoustics are equally or even maybe more important. The appropriate acoustic conditions play a huge role in all aspects of the music we listen to, such as: detail, dynamics, spatiality, stereophony, timbre, tonal balance or the location of virtual sources. A properly designed room guarantees the highest sound quality.

The price of acoustic adaptation depends on many factors, including the size of the room, the complexity of the project, as well as the visual effect we want to achieve. The average price of complete adaptation /insulation is usually in the range of 1000 – 2000 PLN net / m2, counting the floor surface. In order to estimate the exact project costs, it is worth contacting us via e-mail or telephone and making an appointment for a consultation with our acoustician.

To put it frankly – Yes. The number and type of individual acoustic panels should be selected individually for each room based on the calculations and measurements used. Inappropriate adaptation can have the opposite effect to the desired one. For example, by using homogeneous systems throughout the room, we can only operate at a specific frequency for which the given panel works most effectively. This may, in effect, increase the sound disproportions instead of reducing them.

Again, the answer is yes. We offer a special masking system (Nyquiwall) that allows you to hide acoustic panels or speakers under a tight fabric. From a visual perspective, it looks like a smooth wall (or ceiling), so you do not have to worry about changing the interior design dramatically. Bass traps can also be made to be part of a suspended ceiling or corner installation of the room. Regardless of the type of adaptation, we try to design the space so that it constitutes an integral and aesthetic whole.

If we have a choice between a specially dedicated room and the living room, the first option will be much better. In an independent room it is possible to perform a complete acoustic adaptation, install an optimal sound system, provide the viewer with adequate screen darkness, or isolation from the rest of the house. In many cases, however, this is not possible and our entertainment center is the living room. In this case, we can also design a cinema or a listening room. It is a more difficult task for which certain allowances have to be made, but it is indeed feasible.

Yes. However, it should be remembered that acoustic absorbing, diffusing panels and bass traps are used to improve acoustic conditions inside the room itself. On the other hand, they do not significantly affect noise penetration to neighboring rooms. The noise level depends mainly on the materials from which the walls, floor, ceiling and the construction of the building are made. We use completely different materials for acoustic insulation of partition walls than for interior adaptation. In the case of insulation, it is always advisable to consult an acoustician.

Yes, however, some allowances have to be made. In the cinema room we have more sources of sound (5.1 system; 7.1; 7.2.4) therefore we need more absorption and a shorter reverberation time. In turn, to listen to music in stereo, we need a “livelier” room which provides the listener with a more “natural” sound. In addition to conditions which give a smaller amount of sound absorption, we must use diffusers. Before implementing the project, it is necessary to determine how often we will use both systems and adjust the acoustic conditions accordingly.

If we have such a possibility, it is worth planning a stereo room / cinema room already at the design stage of the house. In such an instance, we can choose the appropriate dimensions and proportions of the room, including the walls, ceilings, planning of bass traps, appropriate sound insulation or audio-video installation. Usually, however, we already have a room that we want to adapt. In such a case, we should make sure that the acoustic project is adjusted to the given conditions, so as to maximize the use of our space.

To obtain excellent acoustic conditions, both sound absorption and diffusion should be used in the room. All acoustic panels that we use in our projects are tested in terms of their sound absorption or diffusion properties. Thanks to this we are able to choose the right type, number and proportions of systems for a given space. In most cases, tuned acoustic panels and bass traps should also be used.

The selection of hi-fi / hi-end equipment is usually a long and tedious process. There are many producers of audio equipment on the market and new ones appear every year. Just getting to hear some of them and forming your own opinion about them is very difficult. In addition, there are innumerable configurations of loudspeakers, amplifiers, transducers, turntables, players and cables. Hifi has been our hobby for over 10 years, so we are happy to help you with audio equipment regardless of the budget you have.

No. We work with all distributors and manufacturers, both large and small. In the selection of audio-video equipment, we want to be independent and have the opportunity to choose from all the products available on the market. We do not limit ourselves to specific companies. Thanks to this, we can always choose equipment adapted to the individual needs of our clients.

Even with the best projector at our disposal, the image quality will be limited by the properties of our screen. A low-quality projection screen causes a number of problems such as: poor color reproduction, a too bright or too dark image, blur of contours or loss of detail. A good screen should have a sufficiently high reflection coefficient, which will improve the contrast and color saturation. In the case of electric projector screens, it’s important to have good quality tensioners that will ensure that the surface is always smooth and even.

Yes. What’s more, a well-prepared home cinema usually provides us with much better conditions than in commercial cinemas! If you have the appropriate audio-video system and room acoustics, you will hear and see much more in the privacy of your home. For this to happen, you need an appropriate design adapted to your room. Make an appointment with our expert.

People are often skeptical about intelligent automation until they try to use it for themselves. Once we try it, we usually do not want to return to traditional solutions anymore. Well-programmed intelligent control should facilitate the use of media, increase our security and, above all, save energy. Current automation systems are becoming cheaper and more and more reliable. Before purchasing such a system, we should familiarize ourselves with all its disadvantages and advantages.
