Home Theatre

PROFESSIONAL Design

It is critical that all systems are designed to meet industry standards and that the room is tuned to deliver the best outcome. Cogworks team of professional engineers and interior designers can help create a personalised solution. Our documents streamline the process of building the ultimate home theatre.

Speaker Sound Pressure Level

Delivering industry sound pressure levels is one of the most basic functions that any home theatre should achieve. Cogworks select brands like ProAudio and Theory, then calculates speaker and amplifier requirements for every room to ensure your listening to movies at intended playback levels.

Projection Screens

Cogworks has a selection of specialised projection screens including woven acoustically transparent, high gain and ambient light rejecting materials.

All our engineered cinema solutions utilise acoustically transparent screens, allowing us to place speakers and acoustic treatment into the correct positions in the room. Voices come from exactly where the person on the screen is talking and delivers the ultimate immersive experience.

ACOUSTICS

In commercial cinemas when watching anamorphic widescreen, the curtains move sideways so that the image is larger and more immersive. This is a director’s artistic intent for a film and the way that any movie should be watched. On most domestic TV’s and projectors, the reverse is true, and we end up with black bars at the top and bottom of our screen, with a smaller image.  We provide the tools to watch movies as the director intended, with widescreen anamorphic screens and Lumagen video processing. Contact Cogworks to find out how.

Gamers delight

Will your room be using for gaming? Audio delivered well via an engineered calibrated system literally puts the sound stage where it was intended, be it overhead or behind you. Make those games worthy of playing with a truly immersive experience.

HIGH CHANNEL COUNT IMMERSIVE AUDIO

3D Immersive audio formats can decode up to 32+ channels in the domestic environment. There are two reasons why high channel count is important in any home cinema design.

1. Speakers are often placed too close to the listening position and become overpowering in the system. Adding additional speakers close to this speaker creates more of an area effect which is important. Creating an area effect allows you to turn down the volume of the single speaker operating alone.

2. In rooms with large seating areas, it is important to use additional speakers to create a sound field that encompasses all the seats without creating hot spots in the audio field.
Brands like Acurus allow you to extend your immersive audio experience from 16 to 20 channels and Trinnov allows you to use 32+ channels of audio processing for the ultimate in 3D immersive audio.
