Looking for home theater design information? We've got it! With the upfront planning, investing in a home theater can be one of the best enhancements to your lifestyle. Home theaters are great for relaxing, entertaining, and bringing the whole family together on those overcast or rainy non-beach days.
Media Rooms, Game Rooms, and Family Rooms - Are They Different? The first step is to plan your space. Will you have a dedicated home theater room or will your system be in a multi-purpose media room? Either way can be fantastic. A dedicated home theater is designed specifically for entertainment: enjoying movies, sports, TV, and video gaming. A media room serves for more than entertaining. A family room or bonus room may double as a media room as well.
Screen Size and Viewing Distance
The next steps are deciding both the location and size for your video display. Both the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and THX Ltd. (a developer of quality standards founded by Lucas Film) have recommendations on this subject. This step is very important to get right and is probably the most difficult one to fix if you get it wrong. Adobe Cinema & Automation knows how to do this right.
Acoustics and Soundproofing
It's important to have a great picture, but a movie without good sound is a terrible experience. You must be able to clearly understand dialogue. Great sound immerses you in a film's sound effects. All things being equal, acoustic treatments (many of which can blend into the interior landscape) have a larger impact on the sound than almost any component. Another point to consider is sound isolation - keep unwanted noise from adjacent areas out and sound from the theater/media room from bleeding out of the room.
Choosing the Right Equipment
This is the fun part for most people. Significant improvements in video technology can give you a great picture for a fraction of the cost only 5-10 years ago. This allows more room in your budget for great sound. Recent improvements in home theater speakers will make your surround sound experience even more entertaining. Designing your system is where Adobe Cinema & Automation experts excel in optimizing performance.
Home Theater Magic
In many cases, spending a few extra dollars on a system control, lighting control can add the extra "WOW" to your experience. We have many ideas through our experience in past projects to share and assist in creating your own personal magic.
Other areas to consider are certified audio and video system calibrations; electrical requirement; ventilation and HVAC planning; and integrating video gaming for any age.
When your installation is complete, we will instruct you in the best ways to get the most enjoyment from your new home theater. You can also rest easy because we offer a complete service and support department.
Keeping in mind that a properly designed and implemented home theater will provide lasting enjoyment for the whole family.
Whole Home Audio
Music to Everyone's Ears
As the modern living space plays host to new technologies, it demands an entertainment system that is woven into the fabric of the home and can satisfy the discerning ear of any astute or casual listener. The speakers, both indoor and marine-rated outdoor, should disappear amidst the furniture, fixtures, and landscape, respectively, yet maintain functionality, aesthetics, and most of all performance. Adobe Cinema & Automation systems are custom tailored to your needs and allow for installation in spaces that you simply wouldn't expect.
When designing a custom music system, Adobe Cinema & Automation considers more than just audio performance. Create the ambience you desire by listening to your favorite artist over Sirius/XM, Pandora, Rhapsody, Spotify, or your iTunes collection, as you move throughout the house or relax and entertain in your home.
All of the family's favorite music can also be securely stored, quickly accessed, shared, displayed, and selectively distributed throughout the home. Independent and simultaneous streams of iTunes media can routed to any area in the home, effectively achieving whole-house audio/video distribution.
Homeowners can now automatically sync music and playlists between their home computer, any compatible iOS device, and their audio distribution system, making media storage ubiquitous and user-friendly to the highest degree.
Any song uploaded to your iTunes account from any registered device at home, your secondary residence or on the go, will automatically be added to your audio library and will be available to play throughout your home.
Press PLAY. And then sit back and relax.
Whole House Video
Whether you have three or ten TVs around the house doesn't mean you also need as many cable receivers, BluRay players, AppleTVs, or video clients. Today's technology allows for seamless distribution of these sources to any TV in the house without requiring multiple units. Using a whole house video solution means you don't have to pay Comcast, DirecTV, or Dish Network a licensing fee for each of their receivers, but you will still enjoy all the benefits of their services.
Imagine all of your favorite movies at your fingertips. Imagine breathtaking audio and video fidelity, delivering a truly cinematic experience without the compression noise found in streaming services. Imagine not having to search for lost discs or sitting through previews and advertisements. Press PLAY, and your movie begins instantly.
You'll also enjoy more control over your movie collection than you ever thought possible. You can instantly jump to any episode of a television series, or skip directly to an exciting action scene. You can stop a movie in one room and continue watching in another room - now or two weeks from now.
- Entertainment should be a pleasure not a chore - simple, fast, and fun!
- Start a movie in your home theatre and resume it in the bedroom

Your Home's Digital Foundation

Just like your home's physical foundation, the digital foundation of your home must be robust and strong enough to support the many devices that will depend on it.
Unfortunately, the over-the-counter networking appliances many consumers have relied on in the past simply cannot meet the needs of the automated residence.

Keeping today's high-tech, energy efficient home cleaner and healthier takes powerful performance and better technology. Central vacuum systems provide both in addition to quieter operation, more convenience, and added value. The result is a total whole-house cleaning experience.
Indoor air pollution is one of the most common problems addressed by allergists and is troublesome for their patients. Central vacuum systems often are recommended for removing pollutants. Unlike conventional vacuums that can recirculate dust, a central vacuum system can remove 100% of contacted dust, mites, pollen, animal dander and other allergens and is superior to a conventional vacuum in providing relief from allergy symptoms. A University of California Davis study determined central vacuum systems improved quality of life by:
- Nasal = 47%
- Non-Nasal = 48%
- Eyes = 61%
- Sleep = 44%
Greater Cleaning Power
Because of its powerful motor and large air flow, central vacuums pick up deep down dirt, dust and debris, even microscopic particles like pollen, mold spores and dust mites. Central vacuums eliminate all those dust particles you see in the air after vacuuming with a traditional upright or canister vacuums, as well as that familiar "vacuum smell."
Convenience and Ease of Cleaning
No heavy equipment to lug around; no cords to trip over or catch on furniture; no clunky unit nicking the furniture and woodwork as you move from room to room. Lightweight hoses and attachments are easy to carry. Convenient outlets placed to your specifications allow quick and efficient cleaning. Quick-clean accessories provide instant access to vacuum power for life's daily messes!
Because the noise from the system is generated in an out-of-the-way area, vacuuming with a central vac system makes less noise than a hairdryer or clothes dryer. Quiet enough to vacuum in the same room as a sleeping child!
Lighting & Shade Control
Enhance Comfort & Convenience
Your home should be designed to complement your needs. As your needs change throughout the day, your lighting should adapt as well; bright to read a book, but dim for computer use. Adobe Cinema & Automation's solutions provide convenient access to light control, creating a comfortable atmosphere to support your activities throughout the day.
Elements of Comfort
Personalize a light control system to recall favorite settings and effortlessly transform the light that surrounds you. Control your home's lighting from a master keypad, by remote to easily change your visual environment at the touch of a button, or remotely from your phone or tablet. Timers, fan controls, and occupancy/vacancy sensors can be added for convenience to automatically control your lights and fans.
For rooms with ample sunlight, you can integrate a shading solution with electric lighting for total light control. Shades can be preset for different room uses or adjusted for changes in time of day or season.
When designed properly, your space will work as hard as you do. Made for flawless incorporation with any decor, a wide range of colors and styles are available, so design never suffers for the sake of function. With advanced technology and dedication to quality, luxury is completely within your control.
Today, energy efficiency is an essential element of every home and business. In fact, lighting can account for up to 20% of a household's yearly electricity usage. Energy-saving light control solutions have been used for more than fifty years. When considering your options, keep in mind that saving energy can be achieved without sacrificing style or convenience.
There are many ways to save energy throughout a home; from dimmers, occupancy sensors and whole home light control systems to window shade solutions that manage daylight and help control heating and cooling costs. Replace a single light switch with any dimmer and potentially save $30 a year. Combine dimmers, timers, sensors, and window shades to maximize your energy efficiency by 15% or more.
Few homeowners spend much time thinking about thermostats and which one is right for their home. But perhaps they should, because a properly designed thermostat can do much more than just turn your heating and cooling system on and off. And while you usually think of thermostats as just controlling your home's temperature - we view thermostats as your easy-to-use command center, as you can control and customize your entire home's comfort experience.
