In addition to a sophisticated audio and video distribution system throughout the entire house, the clients also wanted an extremely high-performing ultra modern theater that shared a central control system with the rest of the house. The house was designed with a clean contemporary look and the clients wanted the a/v equipment to blend into that. They wanted the latest technology and design of equipment, but also wanted the components out of view. Their vision was to have phenomenal acoustics integrated throughout the entire house without any equipment intrusion in any of the design spaces.
By utilizing the Crestron 8x3 Video Distribution System, the Adagio Audio Distribution System, a combination of Crestron and RTI remote controls, and multiple sources including the Kaleidescape Audio and Video Servers, we were able to satisfy the clients in two ways; 1.) We were able to hang flat screens directly onto the walls thus honoring the sparse, contemporary style and the latest technology. 2.) We created a control room with two racks of equipment which controls the entire house and is conveniently out of
sight. The only component necessary for operations were slick wireless remote controls where needed (family room, master bedroom , kitchen).
