Dark Knight Cinema by Beter Beeld & Geluid

Published 14th April 2017 | By Jaro Pollanen

This month, we have awarded the prize to Beter Beeld & Geluid for their awesome "Dark Knight" Cinema installation, which brought out the big kid in us all at Screen Excellence! These ultimate surroundings for escaping into the world of superheroes would make Stan Lee proud!

Beter Beeld & Geluid chose a Screen Excellence Reference 120 HD fixed frame screen as the centrepiece for their installation with a Sony VW320 UHD for image projection.

The audio setup consists of a 7.1 JBL Synthesis Four system with four S2S-EX subwoofers. With the use of soundfield management the difference in measurement per seat was less than 1.5dB.

The Dark Knight Cinema was built from the ground up next to the client's home, meaning the use of space and acoustics could be fully calculated before starting the build. The room and acoustic treatment was designed in partnership with Pinna Acoustics. The reverberation time of the room has a perfect Dolby reference for a small home-cinema of 0.3 seconds. All the acoustic treatment was hidden behind acoustically transparent panels and the life size photos of the Dark Knight and Catwoman at the back of the room - both scary and sexy at the same time!

    Equipment:
  • Screen Excellence Enlightor 4K 120″ wide 16:9
  • Sony VPL-VW320ES Ultra HD projector
  • JBL Synthesis Four system
  • 4 x JBL Synthesis S2S-EX subwoofers
  • JBL Synthesis SDA8300 amplifier
  • 2x JBL Synthesis 820 amplifiers for subwoofers
  • AudioQuest and JBL Synthesis cables

Mon Ciné Privé

Published 18th January 2017 | By Jaro Pollanen

The perfect synergy of Audio Excellence and Screen Excellence in a media room

This month, we have awarded the prize to "Mon Ciné Privé", a custom installer based in Marseille, France for this exceptional media room installed in an old refurbished house in the French Alps.

The brief for this media room was to combine a sleek, but visible appearance with top notch performance on a tight budget. Didier Autric ran the gauntlet with assistance from Audio Excellence on the sound system design.

The projector is the new EH-TW9300 with 4K enhancement from Epson which projects on the Screen Excellence SLIM 110 screen, the heart of the installation, which is a equipped with our premium Enlightor Neo-S projection surface to give ultimate acoustic transparency.

The sound system is derived from the recommended medium power Atmos 7.1.4 configuration as detailed on the Audio Excellence website, with some modifications:

The front speakers are in keeping with the recommended configuration, employing three Vertex 2 and two Raijuu 1 units for the L,C,R channels and one Raijuu 2 for the LFE with our Control DP 48 DSP crossover feeding the Audio Excellence Quattro 06 power amplifiers.

To suit the budget constraint, the recommended AV pre-processor was replaced by a Yamaha RX-A3040 receiver, eight channels of which are used to power the Surround and Ceiling Vertex 1 loudspeakers.

Finally, the sources have been chosen by the client himself - Apple TV 4, Playstation Pro 4 and Roku Ultra are all controlled by a Logitech Harmony Elite remote control.

From an aesthetic perspective, the customer specified that the surround and ceiling speakers grilles should be black, to create a contrast with the white walls and ceiling – which is made of acoustically absorbent tiles. The resulting installation is ideal for multimedia use and performance is said to be "beyond expectations". This has helped the owner’s wife to accept the physical size of the Raijuu 2 LFE subwoofer !

Congratulations to Didier !

“The home cinema was a part of a large renovation and even larger underground excavation in Kensington, London. We were presented with a massive concrete shell and asked to turn it into a luxury home cinema with the best possible sound & picture for a given budget. A lot of work went into getting the acoustics right and the final results were short of amazing, with clients and architects extremely pleased with achieved results.”

You too can install the most advanced acoustically transparent screen in the industry

Published 9th March 2016 | By James Bratton

CAS Nominee & Cannes Lions Silver Radio Winner 2015

You can get different types of projection surfaces, but for the ultimate home cinema experience you need an Acoustically Transparent woven screen that is placed in front of the centre, left and right speakers just like you have in a commercial cinema. This allows for the picture and the sound to be in perfect synchronisation.

In 2009, Screen Excellence’s Enlightor 4K projection surface set the standard for acoustically transparent screens that many still aspire to achieve today. The Enlightor 4K has revolutionized the industry by providing the ultimate imaging with zero hotspotting and absolutely no moiré effect whatever projector is used. With beyond 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels) resolution, the Enlightor 4K provides only a small frequency independent insertion loss when placed in front on the centre, left and right speakers.

Not content with having the best acoustically transparent projection screen in the industry, last year we launched 2 new fabrics (Enlightor Neo-S and Neo-W) that have raised the bar higher again and set a new standard. These fabrics provide improved imaging and totally negligible insertion loss when placed in front of the centre, left and right speakers and there is zero moiré effect no matter what projector is used. Both the Neo-S and Neo-W provide ultimate imaging, an enhanced dynamic range and beyond 4K resolution.

These projection surfaces are the very first to fully deserve the Audiophile qualifier.

Our screens also have an acoustically transparent woven black backing to eliminate rear wall light reflections while maximizing the contrast. Our high quality aluminum frames are covered in InfiniteBlack velvet that is 99% light absorbing. This provides the ultimate black border that frames the picture perfectly.

Your customers will experience the ultimate home cinema experience whilst you have the peace of mind that you are providing them the best possible projection screen available.

Best Regards,

Patrice Congard

The Digital Picture Wins Installation of the Month Award for November

Published 18th January 2016 | By James Bratton

Congratulations to The Digital Picture for winning Screen Excellence’s monthly Home Cinema Installation award for November.

This stunning cinema was installed to an over 55’s lifestyle community recreation clubhouse where there are also lap pools, gyms and woodworking rooms.

The recent CEDIA award winning installer, Scott Sauer and his crew from the ‘The Digital Picture’, Queensland, worked with Australia’s renown Wavetrain Cinema’s design firm headed by David Moseley to overcome much of the design challenges of this installation. The design brief was for a high performance cinema room contained within a budget that would be easy on the eyes and the ears of the users of the community.

Ease of use was also front and centre on the brief, this was effectively achieved with the RTI touchscreen controls designed in such a simplistic manner so that any potential movie goer could easily follow the user interface and have a great experience. The Screen Excellence acoustically transparent Referenced RF140WS projection screen was installed giving the audience the best quality image with the perfect coherence with the sound as the front speakers are placed behind the screen. The Digital Picture used Triad InWall Silver LCR speakers and Triad Cinemaplus resilient mount subwoofers.

The interior designer wanted the room to be themed but as the users may bring their grandchildren in to the room, floor standing speaker that could be potentially knocked over had to be fixed. All speakers including subwoofer are totally out of sight without any loss of audio quality. To achieve cinema reference SPL, high sensitivity front speakers were selected and coupled to a power amplifier to achieve 105dB peaks at the first row of seating. Bass performance is also excellent with 2 x Subwoofers in the middle front and an additional time aligned subwoofer engineered in to the rear wall to cancel out standing waves and improve overall bass performance between seating locations ensuring everyone hears the enhanced bass performance.

The room can play at reference without any noise complaints throughout the whole recreation facility. The residents love the cinema room because it’s like being at a normal cinema, but only better!
For winning November’s Installation of the Month award, The Digital Picture will receive 10% discount* off their next Screen Excellence screen purchase plus publicity via our social media pages and website.

We would like to thank everyone that participated in our competition. To be in with a chance to win our next contest, please send your installation photos with a detailed explanation about the installation to sales@screenexcellence.com.

Winner: Sentiment HiFi Installation Award for October

Published 18th January 2016 | By James Bratton

Congratulations to Sentiment HiFi for winning Screen Excellence’s monthly Home Cinema Installation award for October.

Building an exquisite home theater in a square room (5m x 5m x 5m) was a great challenge. Daniel Feng, the manger of Sentiment HiFi , adopted Screen Excellence acoustically transparent screen, US high-end speaker RBH and the ATMOS ceiling speakers from SpeakerCraft in this small room to realize the miracle.

Sentiment HiFi installed the 3D sound channel solution of 7.2.4 configuration Dolby Atmos. The RBH speakers chosen were front, side and back surround SI-6100/R, SI-744 and SI-740 respectively. Besides, Sentiment chose the SX-1212/R as the subwoofer. SpeakerCraft AIM2 was used for the top sound channels. The sound performance of the the system is beyond our imagination.

In order to achieve perfect combination of the sound and the image, there was no other choice than an Acoustically Transparent Screen Excellence projection screen. As a perfectionist, Sentiment adopted the Screen Excellence TAM2-L with the famous Enlightor 4K acoustically transparent projection surface. The screen allows different aspect ratios (the most popular 16:9 and 2.35:1, but also 1.85:1 and 2.40:1) in one single frame. This ingenious design allows the screen to match the different aspect ratio for each movie, avoiding the embarrassment of grey bars at the edge of the picture. The 4K screen perfectly balances the brightness and crispness and provides clear, detailed and realistic images. Meanwhile, because of its finely woven structure, Screen Excellence Enlightor 4K provides a unique acoustic transparency, reducing the insertion loss to a minimum. The black velvet frame structure not only guarantees a perfectly smooth and flat surface, but also integrates itself into the overall American style decoration.

At this moment, the customer enjoys the elegant and accurate imaging projected by JVC projector on the Screen Excellence screen. The realistic images and Dolby ATMOS sound effects surprised the customer with their realism.”
For winning October’s Installation of the Month award, Sentiment will receive 10% discount* off their next Screen Excellence screen purchase plus publicity via our social media pages and website.

Introducing the new TAM 1 single mask True Aspect Masking Projection Screen

Published 18th January 2016 | By James Bratton

A single mask, constant width projection screen provides you the 3 most popular aspect ratios at a competitive price.

The new True Aspect Masking (TAM) 1 projection screen is designed to offer you the 3 most popular aspects ratios that can be pre-programmed positions, i.e.1.78, 1.85, 2.35 (or 2.40).

Winner: Home Cinema Installation Award for September

Published 18th January 2016 | By James Bratton

Congratulations to Cinema Rooms Ltd for winning Screen Excellence’s monthly Home Cinema Installation award for September.

The client had previously wanted a dedicated cinema room in his barn but this proved too difficult and too costly to convert the barn to the required standard. The room in the house suggested by the client needed a lot of work especially as there was a basement directly underneath it. All floorboards had to be replaced and thermal insulation fitted to stop any cold air from coming up from below. Cinema Rooms brought the screen forward and installed a comms room behind it to keep the equipment in and to have a neat minimalistic look.

The room design consisted of a stretched ceiling to hide the structural beams that were on show and to enable the use of Atmos speakers and led’s. A new Sony VPL520 projector was chosen with a Denon AVR 7200WA amp was to enable Dolby Atmos and DTS-X. To get the best out of the Sony projector a Screen Excellence Acoustically Transparent projection screen (Slim110) with industry leading Enlightor 4k projection surface was chosen. The screen was mounted on a black wall to provide to help enhance the viewing experience.

Cinema Rooms wanted a slim speaker design to not only fit behind the screen but to sit nicely on the wall. Artcoustic loudspeakers were chosen and the room a design was completed to get the best sound and look from the room. The speakers were 3x Artcoustic 6-3,s for the fronts with 4x Artcoustic Target speakers for side and rears and 2-1’s for the Atmos in ceilings. This rooms decor was finished off with Rako controls for lighting and blinds and RTI for complete control of the system.

All in all the client is very happy with the look of the room, the sound, the picture quality on the screen and ease of use.

For winning September’s Installation of the Month award, Cinema Rooms will receive 10% discount* off their next Screen Excellence screen purchase plus publicity via our social media pages, website and press releases.

Darkside of the Room Wins Installation of the Month Award for August

Published 18th January 2016 | By James Bratton

Congratulations to Darkside of the Room for winning Screen Excellence’s monthly Home Cinema Installation award for August.

The home cinema room was installed in a former garage of a chalet house located in the Alps. The owner wanted to convert it into a multipurpose studio for guests, including a bathroom and independent facilities. When not occupied by guests, it would become a cinema/reading/reception and games room.

The room includes a Screen Excellence RF100HD 4K screen, Sony VPL-HW55ES Projector and B&W speakers. It uses a B&W SA250 subwoofer amplifier and Yamaha RX-A3030 AV receiver. The bluray player is an Oppo BDP-103E DARBEE. There is a light management system and motorized room darkening blind over a large newly installed window.

The design was created by Fabien Baeza with whom Darkside of the Room work with frequently. “The actual design took a lot of time, but the building work itself only took about 3 months.”

A large support pillar in the room made the design and installation complicated but it was successfully integrated in the bar/technical rack module. The garage door had to be replaced by a large window, but the original entrance door was kept. The ceiling height is low and made it impossible to install 2 rows of seats.

The room was completely rewired to allow further extension of audio zones around the swimming pool, the spa and the terrace. The owners enjoy the room quite regularly to watch movies and to video play games with a PS4 PlayStation.

For winning July’s Installation of the Month award, Dynamic Home Cinema will receive 10% discount* off their next Screen Excellence screen purchase plus publicity via our social media pages, website and press releases.

We would like to thank everyone that participated in our August competition. To be in with a chance to win our September contest please send your installation photos with a detailed explanation about the installation to sales@screenexcellence.com.

As you know our Acoustically Transparent home cinema screens are the ultimate in luxury, and the Screen Excellence Vista Curve projection screen is no exception. In fact, the Vista Curve offers a level of luxury other brands just cannot provide.

What makes it different?

Simple. The screen is curved allowing your clients to become fully immersed into the film they are watching As true Audiophiles, we at Screen Excellence believe the three front speakers need to be placed behind the screen so sound and picture are in perfect synchronisation. This combined with the Vista Curve and the appropriate 4K projector will have the audience memorised by the “real” world of their film.

The Vista Curve projection screen provides your customers with the experience of a real commercial cinema in the luxury of their own home. With a recommended aspect ratio of 2.37:1 (others are available) this is the projection screen for the ultimate film connoisseur. The velvet frame that surrounds the screen absorbs 99.7 percent of any light providing the look and feel of luxuriousness.

The Vista Curve comes standard with our industry leading Enlightor 4K fabric and is the perfect projection surface for any 4K projector. Our screens are the only Acoustically Transparent projection surfaces to be 100% compatible with Ultra HD (4K) projectors providing your customers with the perfect cinema experience in their home. The Enlightor 4K has a constant acoustic transparency, negligible acoustic insertion loss, zero moiré effect, and are the only Audiophile grade screens available on the market.

Beyond having a premium brand identity, a luxury product is one that consistently performs at a very high level, is pleasing to the eye, is reliable, and has a degree of quality second to none. It is a leader in its field and stands alone above others.

This is exactly what characterizes Screen Excellence Acoustically Transparent projection screens.

The TAM2 TB with top and bottom acoustical transparent motorized masks is quite simply a step up in luxury that your customers will desire to have in their home cinema.

The TAM2 TB is provided with a native aspect ratio of 16/9 (1.78:1) and the motorized masks can adjust the height of the projection surface to various other aspect ratios (1.85, 2.35, and 2.40). Optional control and programming solutions are offered, according to the most popular protocols (RS 232, IR, RF). The screens and controls can be suitable for either 120V/60HZ or 250V/50HZ, so they can be installed worldwide. The size range is between 70 and 180 inches base width to cover the vast majority of Home Cinema applications.

The TAM2 TB is available with either our industry leading Enlightor 4K or our new ground breaking Enlightor Neo S fabrics.

Dynamic Home Cinema Wins Installation of the Month Award for July

Published 18th January 2016 | By James Bratton

Congratulations to Dynamic Home Cinema for winning Screen Excellence’s monthly Home Cinema Installation award for July.

The installation took place in a 28 square metre room and needed to work within a modest budget. The Installer, Dynamic Home Cinema from Marseille, hired Jean Pierre Laffont, a famous French acoustic designer to create the optimum acoustic environment without reducing too much of the available space. After the acoustic furbishing, the remaining space was 25 square metres.

The sound quality was the number one criteria in the whole design process. Didier Autric installed and MK 150 Sound system in a 7.2 configuration, with the 3 front loudspeakers being placed behind a Screen Excellence RF 120 WS acoustically transparent projection screen. The integrated receiver is a Yamaha RXA-3030.

The aesthetics and the acoustics were carefully designed to provide a sense of well-being and a feeling of comfort to the audience. The whole installation is controlled by means of an iPad interfacing with an RTI system. The main source is a BNM video server, feeding a JVC DLA-X500R calibrated with a Spectracal meter in accordance with THX specifications.

The cinema room will be used for a large variety of programmes like movies, cartoons and sport; but mainly for concert videos as the client is a great music lover.

The result, according to the client, “is beyond expectations!”

We would like to thank everyone that participated in our July competition.

To be considered for this month’s award, photos should be of installations performed with the last 6 months and should not have already have been submitted. The winning installation will receive 10% discount* off their next purchase of a Screen Excellence projection screen, plus publicity via social media and website.

June Winner of Installation of the Month

Published 3rd July 2015 | By James Bratton

Kent Home Cinema Wins Installation of the Month Award for June

Congratulations to Kent Home Cinema for winning Screen Excellence’s monthly Home Cinema Installation award for June. The acoustically transparent screen was installed in a converted room that included the home cinema and bar area. As we all know, the best results can only be obtained with the speakers located behind the screen in order to get that true cinema experience and ensure that the video and audio are in perfect synchronisation.

Kent Home Cinema stated: “Conversion of an existing room to a dedicated home cinema room which needed to include a control system which could be extended to other rooms in the future. Following a visit to the Artcoustic demonstration centre and hearing Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 they wanted to include this within the specifications. Working closely with Dolby and our Artcoustic the speaker positions were planned into the room taking into consideration the size, layout of the room, and also to work within the bar area at the rear of the room. A full design specification was provided to the clients building contractors for the construction of the front wall studwork, room down light positions, the pelmet around the room for the cable management and LED lighting, and the raised plinth for the two rows of home cinema seating.

A fabric wall installed by Kent Home Cinema after the front speakers were installed including the impressive new Artcoustic Performance Subwoofer. A Screen Excellence 2.35:1 4K Fixed Frame Screen was specified to compliment the Sony VW-VPL500ES 4K home cinema projector giving a stunning picture.

All equipment including the Denon AVR-X7200W receiver, OPPO 103D player, sub and tactile amps and other TV/Audio sources were installed at the rear of the room in two low level racks with temperature control.

The client was delighted with the final quality of sound and picture quality and the room is being used regularly by family and friends.

For winning June’s Installation of the Month award, Kent Home Cinema will receive 10% discount* off their next Screen Excellence screen purchase plus publicity via our social media pages, website and press releases.

The Sound Revolution is here. Are You Ready?

Published 23rd June 2015 | By James Bratton
The Sound Revolution is here. Are You Ready?

When you look at an image on a projection screen your field of vision is defined by the screen itself, everything else is black. Now, with a 3D sound system, focused on object sounding, there are two categories of objects: Those that are visible and those that are not.

Quite obviously, the sound engineers will place the soundscape in coherence with the landscape : The visible sounding objects will have their corresponding signals allotted to front loudspeakers, whereas non-visible objects will be located only by their sound in the surround speakers.

The art of the sound engineer will be to use the various available channels and corresponding lousdpeakers to track sounding objects positions and movements with accuracy.

Accuracy is the main word here.

Now if you can locate precisely an object outside of your field of vision with sound only, what about visible sounding objects?

Well, it just provides a great sense of realism, as their sound localisation perfectly confirms their visible position.

And what if not?

I mean here, what if an object is visible on the screen and its sound is accurately located outside of the screen?

Well, in that case you’d better forget about accuracy, and deliberately blurr the sound localisation.

This is exactly what happens if your 3 front loudspeakers are placed around the screen, exactly like if your screen was not acoustically transparent.  3D audio is a great leap forward, similar to what happened when moving from mono to stereo.

You only have to be aware of this: You will enjoy it only if the sound of the front loudspeakers comes through the screen.

Screen Excellence gives you with the perfect sound solution with our Enlightor Neo-S screen fabric. It provides negligible acoustic insertion loss (less than 1dB), and beyond 4K resolution. The whole system has to work in harmony and this will not happen with a solid screen or a fabric screen with a high insertion loss. With many to choose from, Screen Excellence acoustically transparent projection screens can bring all the components together in perfect harmony providing the ultimate home cinema experience.

Audiophile

Published 17th June 2015 | By James Bratton

Audiophile? Did you really mean Audiophile?

You may wonder what “audiophile “ really means. Literally, an audiophile is someone who likes the audio technologies, and who strives for the purest playback audio system.

Now, this concept is not strictly reserved to 2-channel music playback system: It also applies to a Home Cinema sound system.

As a side note, movie soundtracks are the only sources of recorded sound that do not suffer from analog compression which is systematically applied to music for purely commercial reasons.

If you are passionate about sound reproduction, like many of us are, have a thought for this lonely centre loudspeaker that is placed below a projection screen – a highly reflective surface – and near to the reflective floor.

It’s not working in ideal conditions. I’d even say, it is the sacrificial speaker! Despite the fact that 70% of the movie soundtrack plays back through the centre speaker, a good portion of it is lost due to poor speaker placement.

And there’s worse! The centre speaker also reproduces the sound of ‘sounding objects’ that are supposed to be located inside the image, as they are visible on the screen. The sound and the image now tell different stories as they are no longer synchronised.

If you want a great sound, the #1 rule is to place the centre loudspeaker at the centre of the image. So the sound has to go through the screen, like in a commercial cinema.

This seems in contradiction with the ideal of the purest sound reproduction.

Actually, it was.

As an audiophile myself (not of the weird esoteric lot, though), I have focused on eliminating any compromise on sound reproduction. This is how, after years of R & D, Screen Excellence have finalized the design of the Enlightor Neo-S fabric for home cinema screens.

With an insertion loss of less than one dB at any frequency, a total absence of phase-shift and no directivity alteration, placing this screen between the centre loudspeaker and your ear is simply not making any audible difference.

This is exactly what a perfect audiophile product means: Its insertion does not make any audible difference.

For this, we can introduce to you the very first audiophile projection screen.

The imaging quality is stunning too. But this is another subject.

Good listening!

Congratulations to ET Home Cinema for winning Screen Excellence’s inaugural monthly Home Cinema Installation award for May. The acoustically transparent screen was installed to a tight brief to convert a games room into a home cinema without any equipment visible. At Screen Excellence we believe that the speakers should always be placed behind the screen in order to get that true cinema experience and insure that the video and audio are in perfect synchronisation.

ET Home Cinema stated: “The brief from the client was to have a high performing Home Cinema without seeing any of the equipment so as not to distract from the aesthetics of the room. With this in mind, the obvious choice was Artcoustic Spitfire range combined with an acoustically transparent Screen Excellence screen. The Artcoustic speakers combined with an Integra Dolby Atmos 9.2 Receiver and ET HomeCinema bespoke acoustic treatment ensure a truly remarkable cinema experience.”

The Sony HW55ES was specified to provide a bright, razor sharp cinema image capable of 1080p and 3D, this combined with a Screen Excellence screen ensure the very best picture quality.

The Dolby Atmos configuration for this room was 5.1.4 which works perfectly for the seating position and size of room. A complete video and audio calibration was completed prior to handing over to the customer. The audio, video, lighting and control equipment are located in a separate room in a Sanus rack with just the BluRay and PS4 located in a cupboard in the bar area for ease of use.”

Are your lip-sync issues driving you nuts?

Published 28th May 2015 | By James Bratton

If you are new to home cinema installations or even an old dog, I’m sure you have experienced the time lag in the picture to voice.  The dreaded lip-sync issue.

It's like watching a badly dubbed film.... The reason this is happening is that the sound is being processed a lot quicker than the high definition video.  You can use the delay function on the home cinema receiver or AV processor but unfortunately it is quite difficult to be accurate using a regular AV programme.  What you need is an easy tool to help you resolve it quickly and efficiently. 

We have the answer....

Simply register on our website and download your free lip-sync tool.  You will be able to use the lip-sync tools to enable you to synchronise the sound and the image after the signal processing that has taken place in your display system. This tool is in an mp4 file which you can play directly into your system. This is similar to the film 'clapper board', but it is designed for digital video displays instead. The tool will allow you to use your manual delay function until the picture and sound is in perfect sync, just like using the focus on a camera to get the perfect picture possible.

So register today and have those lip-sync issues resolves in a fraction of the time.

You know you need the the correct lip-sync in time but do you realise that you also need it in space? In order to achieve that you need an acoustically transparent screen.
