Home AV Installation – Cabling
With home AV installation, many times the question is “To See or Not to See”
With this purpose in mind the advice below will assist in your AV installation
Is it a Mirror? Is it a TV? Or is it Both?
Firstly on every Home AV Installation you have the decision to make of how much equipment do I have and where to have your equipment. Secondly how much space do i have?
Equipment such as Sky Boxes, DVD Players, Speakers ,Amplifiers, Music Servers, Movie Servers, and a whole lot more.
The standard method is a Television in each room with a Sky box and DVD linked directly to the television. On a stand this looks fine but with hanging a flat screen TV do you still have an unsightly furniture piece under it? Accordingly this will take away the effect of the flat screen. If there is to be no furniture where does all the equipment go? For instance what if you have more than 3 televisions and Sky will only give you 3 boxes? Another consideration is do your rooms need to share central content
Then to speakers, do you have visible round speakers in your ceiling messing with your lighting design. Furthermore do you have speakers on your wall, do you like the sight of them visible or not? With attention to detail an aesthetically pleasing solution can be found
Some clever solutions we utilise to hide your AV equipment with great effect.
Picture Frame Televisions
Mirror TV installation – Is it a Television, a mirror, a family picture frame, an Aquarium? The choice is yours
These speakers install flush with your walls.They are then painted with the wall so they disappear
|Central Control system
Put all your Sky boxes, DVD players, Music and Movie servers all in a central location and cable to each location. All your equipment fully hidden, useable by all locations and fully functional
Similarly when it comes to control. Do you have a separate control for everything you own or do you combine them? In addition can you control your house from one place or must you have separate control for each area.
In conclusion for every home AV installation there is a large range of choices for equipment. Additionally there are many ways to connect the systems together. Therefore the correct design and planning make all the difference
