Multi-room Entertainment Systems

Drawing on top of the range product from manufacturers such as Crestron, RTI, Arcam, Denon, Onkyo, Yamaha, KEF, Monitor Audio, Polk, Waterfall, Panasonic, Runco, Stewart, Lutron, etc., you can be sure that your home will be the pride of your family, and the envy of all your friends and colleagues. From a simple plasma screen, DVD, and surround sound amplifier, up to fully integrated cinema rooms featuring projection systems with electric screens, THX amplification & speaker system, complete with touch screen control.

A multi room system, is what home entertainment should be all about. The ability to listen or watch whatever you want to, in any room of your home. Imagine the whole family being able to enjoy and control their favourite music, movies, and TV viewing in any room throughout the home.

A multi-room entertainment system will turn this dream into reality, with the freedom and flexibility to access and control audio and video equipment independently in every room - think of it simply as central heating for pictures and sound.

Systems can be configured on a room by room basis to provide background audio, audiophile listening quality, or full surround sound cinema. Speakers can be built-in or even invisibly installed within the fabric of the building. TVs can be hidden within furniture or behind artwork etc., only becoming visible when required.

Everything you’ll need is at your fingertips, via stylish, intuitive in-wall keypads and touchscreens or handheld remote controls.

Of course the controls do not need to stop at just controlling sound and vision, but can integrate with other systems such as lighting, heating, and security, by adding additional packages.

DIGITAL MEDIA

In todays digital age of high definition imagery it is important to ensure that multi-room entertainment systems are able to distribute these high bandwidth signals to each display device in a manner which ensures you are utilising the full capabilities of your HD displays.

Crestron DM is a complete, integrated solution that manages, controls and distributes all analogue and uncompressed HD digital content over twisted pair or fiber cabling. DM matrix switchers are flexible, modular systems that can accept virtually every signal type and transmit them long distance as digital DM signals. Built-in exclusive QuickSwitch HD™ technology pre-authorises HDCP keys and maintains a constant handshake for continuous, glitch-free HD switching. At the end points, DM receivers control and output HDMI and Ethernet to the display. Digital Media is the only solution for the digital age, distributing all analogue and uncompressed HD digital signals, and managing embedded data such as HDCP, EDID and CEC.

MEDIA SOURCES

A variety of high tech source equipment can be added to provide a wealth of media at your fingertips.
Source options include:

  • On-line audio and video streaming devices to allow access to iTunes or other online content.
  • Local media servers capable of storing your CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, and 3D disc content.
  • Network devices to store your home movies and picture libraries.
  • AM/FM/DAB and Internet radio tuners.

Integrated Systems have a wealth of experience in specifying and installing these types of media services, in fact we completed the first UK installation of a Kaleidescape DVD/cd server system. The system features a main server which stores a library of DVDs Blu-Ray Discs and CDs. Additional zone players can then be added in order to allow multiple rooms to access this content on demand, allowing different music or video to be played in any connected room.

Since that time a vast array of 'connected' devices have appeared. You can be safe in the knowledge that Integrated systems have the expertise to lead you through the choices in order to ensure you arrive at a system that meets your particular requirements and is easy to use.

TOUCH SCREEN CONTROLS

Integrated Systems are specialists in the installation of Touch Screen Controls that allow all of your systems to be controlled from a single interface, and bring your system to life. Users do not need to be technically savvy to operate the system as the complex instructions required to make multiple devices respond to a single command are all pre-programmed by us and hidden behind intuitive buttons presented on a simple to understand interface.

MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS

Systems by Integrated Systems represent more than the sum of their parts. Instead they provide added user benefits:

SKY boxes are notorious for locking up, requiring a hard power reset. We can give you the ability to do this from your handheld remote control, no more delving round the back of the SKY box to pull the power cable!

Internet routers are another device that can require re-booting on occasion. Our systems are capable of monitoring the router and rebooting it automatically when required.

Going away? We can provide power down facilities from the remote control that will turn off any equipment that does not need to be left in standby, saving your energy bills whilst also being good for the environment. These can be accessed locally at the residence or remotely from your smart phone device should you forget to do it before you leave!
