Briefly describe the objectives in creating this installation.
Our client is an incredible sports enthusiast and a very successful businessman. This area is the main level of a newly constructed two story home office and billiard room. The goal was to provide a large display that could be used for watching television and movies in varying ambient light conditions, additional displays for watching multiple sporting events or monitoring surveillance cameras on the property, and a high-quality digital audio system. It was important that the system provide all of these functions without detracting from the very sophisticated interior design.

What technical features are notable in this project?
The system includes three Sony XBR series flat panel televisions – one 70” display, and two 40” displays. To balance the difference in height between the 70” display and the stacked 40” displays, and to provide a fun and unique feature in the space, we specified a custom sports/headline ticker above the 70” television. A complete 5.1 digital home theater audio system was installed to complement the video portion of the design. Sources include high-definition DirecTV satellite receivers and a Kaleidescape movie player. Music from the whole-house music system is also connected to the audio components in this area.
