Home cinema is a corner stone technology of the residential installation market, and is a common feature within the home technology industry. The technical design of a high performance home cinema is not a just about a series of subjective decisions. For every parameter, there is a standard that should be achieved in order to offer a truly immersive and secure home entertainment experience.

The Home Cinema Design Fundamentals course is the ideal primer for developing designers and experienced installers to explore the audio, video and home cinema theory in detail and understand the industry standards to produce real designs with maximum performance.

The course is split into two days as follows:

Day 1 - Home Cinema for Designers

Exploring the principals involved in high-performance design, and the science and calculations required to create a complete design for both audio and video, attendees will understand the full scope of a high performance cinema design.

Topics covered include:

  • Understanding the engineering principles of home cinema design
  • Exploration and understanding of the CEA/CEDIA recommended practices for home cinema design
  • Common calculations for audio in home cinema

  • Consideration of other factors (HVAC, lighting, seating, safety etc.)

Day 2 - Home Cinema Design Workshop

Following day one attendees will encompass the entire design process, examine the industry standards and insight into designing home cinemas, and how to implement the industry standards engineering calculations, rather than subjective guesswork.
