How Does Controlled Lighting Enhance Your Home Theater?

Encore Custom AV discusses the finer points of lighting design

First, let’s all agree that a room that completely blacks out isn’t the final goal, even for a home movie theater. You want to know you’re eating from your own popcorn bowl, or where those risers are if you need to make a quick exit. It’s the manner in which you create that accent lighting that separates the ultimate private cinema from a DIY media room, and Encore Custom AV has the experience (in Northern Virginia, Metro DC, and throughout the mid-Atlantic) to help you pick the right lighting control and ceiling treatment for your dream build.

Encore Unlocks the Keys to “Smart” Home Automation

Hint: The secret is at your fingertips…

Home Automation has come a long way in a very short time. Remember when the height of control was a timer for your porch lights? If you didn’t remember to change the timer, your lights would come on at 5:30 pm in July. Hardly smart.

Now? Encore Custom Audio Video can design a system that gives you (responsive) control over your lights, your security, your HVAC, your media, your shades, and even the temperature of your pool or spa (if you happen to be so fortunate). And the best part about having all this control is that you don’t have to learn some new computer program or language in order to take advantage of it. Encore can connect everything through your iPhone, iPad, tablet or otherwise favorite iOS.

An extraordinary home cinema/multipurpose space

The primary objective for this client family was to turn an underutilized builder-grade basement into an extraordinary home cinema/multipurpose space while maintaining an “open” feel.  The clients did not want a dedicated room just for watching movies, as they have a large extended family. Instead, they envisioned an open space that utilized part of the basement for movie watching plus much, much more.
