AWARDS YEARBOOK 2018

ABOUT CEDIA

CEDIA is the international trade association and central touchpoint for 3,700 member companies that represent every facet of the ever-evolving technology market.

CEDIA | Our History

The association powers integrators’ passion by providing development pathways that move them to the next level through education, community, resources, and vision. CEDIA members deliver technology solutions that allow people to have their best moments in life from the comfort of their own home: life lived best at home.

CEDIA was founded in 1989 by a group of professionals dedicated to the advancement of the up-and-coming electronic systems industry. Their vision was to advocate for the needs of the home technology professional by becoming the industry’s leading resource — promoting commerce, offering training, and aiding in the assembly of a legitimate industry that was at the time considered more of a hobby. Since that time, CEDIA has grown into an international association with more than 3,700 member companies worldwide and has come to be recognized as the universal mark of professionalism for industry businesses. The association has expanded tremendously in its 20-plus years of its existence. The CEDIA show is a great example of the evolution of this industry. The first CEDIA show, held in Amelia Island, FL, hosted 500 attendees and featured tabletop displays from some of the industry’s pioneers. The show has grown exponentially since that time in both exhibiting companies and attendees. CEDIA 2017 in San Diego drew more than 500 exhibiting companies and over 20,000 attendees. CEDIA has advanced the industry by: developing timely industry education and certification; launching research initiatives; advocating on legislative issues; building relationships with architects, builders, and interior designers; educating the consumer; and recognizing industry achievement.

CEDIA | What We Do CEDIA offers year-round training and certification opportunities. The association is committed to offering education that helps members become experts in the field, and the CEDIA Certification program is constantly expanded and updated to mirror technological advances. CEDIA provides comprehensive opportunities for its members to learn every aspect of the residential tech business with boot camps, webinars, trade show classes, and much more. CEDIA believes in complementing its hands-on training with online education products. CEDIA offers its members a wide array of services and opportunities to network, both online and in person. CEDIA Groups are small collections of like-minded members who meet regularly via phone or web conference to share their knowledge and experiences. The CEDIA Community is a broader online platform that allows members to trade advice, documents, and technical and business tips. CEDIA’s Government Affairs team is the industry’s watchdog at the policy level, helping protect members from harmful legislation with its lobbying efforts. CEDIA’s Industry Relations program ensures members are partnering with pros in other key fields, from architecture to real estate. CEDIA’s Technology Council is constantly on the lookout for emerging trends and opportunities, and CEDIA regularly seeks opportunities to provide its members with updated guidelines on best practices, business resources, and marketing tools. CEDIA's consumer website, CEDIA.org, provides homeowners with information about home technology amenities along with a complete list of members who can deliver the services a potential client needs. None of what CEDIA does can be accomplished without its members, and that why CEDIA’s robust and engaged volunteers are the backbone of the association.

AWARDS YEARBOOK 2018

ABOUT THE AWARDS

Established in 2006, the CEDIA Awards is the home technology industry’s most prestigious awards program, celebrating technical excellence in design, installation, and integration across the globe. Each year, CEDIA members worldwide put their best projects forward — installations that set the standard for custom technology integration.

The book you hold in your hands represents the best of the best, an annual showcase of excellence demonstrated by home technology professionals and manufacturers across the globe. The winners and finalists in the integration categories were judged by an impartial panel of their peers, who took into consideration every aspect of the projects they reviewed, from aesthetics to calibration to documentation. The Global Winners, culled from top finishers in their individual categories and regions, represent the highest levels of achievement — what the judges deemed were truly “Best in Show.”

BEST MEDIA ROOM LEVEL I: $25,000 (€22,500) & UNDER

// PROJECT

Small & Mighty Media Room // INSTALLERS

M.E.G.A. AV Installations

After presenting the client with their ideas, M.E.G.A. AV Installations was given the go-ahead for a media room in a one-bedroom apartment. Due to the small footprint of the room, the integrator designed a custom AV wall unit that could house all required equipment and the client’s extensive CD collection. The idea was to complete one half of the unit in a high gloss “piano finish” so that when the large TV switched off, the whole floor-to-ceiling section would look like a glossy feature wall panel. To deliver the required sound quality, M.E.G.A. AV Installations opted for slim, in-wall KEF Ci4100QL speakers. The speaker back boxes had enough depth to deliver full-bodied sound, while the TV recess was deep enough to house a Future Automation pull-out-and-swivel PS60 bracket and a 65" Samsung UHD TV. The bracket allows the client to watch TV when in his open-plan kitchen. Since all equipment is housed inside the custom unit, easy access was very important. The small racks are on wheels and can be pulled out for servicing or adding components. Each rack is powered through small PDUs with circuit breakers to allow for easy power cycling, should components need restarting. The unit was designed with both air-flow channels on the back and side walls to allow for natural ventilation. As there are only a few components in each rack, the total BTU was quite small and easily managed with built-in ventilation channels.

This basement retrofit began as a dark, underused entertainment room with an aging screen/projector setup and racket from nearby utilities. The team at Audio Images, working closely with the interior designers, turned the room into a CEDIA Award winner. The terrific 7.1 sound system is complemented by “a system design presenting an image large enough to fully express the capabilities of today's 4K UHD video.

The outcome is simply that they use the room almost daily, which is music to our ears!”

ConnectedWorks and Total Solutions

Following discussions with the client, ConnectedWorks and Total Solutions aimed to deliver good quality immersive sound for music, TV, films, and games, alongside highquality video performance from a cinema-sized projection system and a TV for more casual viewing. The integrators opted for a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos speaker setup without the need for too many speakers or extra power amplifiers — checking the boxes for an immersive experience alongside clean aesthetics. With glass doors on the left-hand side, the integrators installed the surround speakers on the back wall at 100° off-axis, pointing forwards to provide a very convincing rear effects performance after calibration. Due to room limitations, the subs had to be housed inside the AV cabinet, one at each end, with venting in the kickplate to ensure good airflow. Using room modeling software, ConnectedWorks and Total Solutions ensured the bass performance would be sufficiently even.

A Screenline projector screen and Epson projector were installed alongside a Sony TV on a SANUS TV bracket. While it would’ve been easy to choose a larger projector screen, the integrators went for a smaller size that would deliver greater screen brightness, something that was important in this room due to its open-plan nature with a lot of ambient light. The integrators commissioned custom acoustic battens created with wood, cloth, and acoustic foam, which brought the sound down to an RT60 of 0.36s and provide a clean, minimalist look on the baffle wall around the TV.

The challenges with this space are apparent: It’s got to sound and look fantastic even with its movable glass walls open to the adjacent courtyard. With the room’s footprint set, Audio Images was up to the challenge: “The project already had the poured-in-place concrete for the front and back walls of the room when we were brought onto the project, but no challenge is too great for our acoustical engineering company, so we set off to find the correct amount of absorption and acoustical treatments to help bring the room back to proper reverberation.” A 9.4.2 Dolby Atmos system with “matched LCR speakers behind the acoustically

transparent screen and angled-baffle speakers mounted in the ceiling” creates the immersive effect. A Barco projector provides the image on a 1.78:1 screen. The interior designer wanted a metal frame for that screen, but that wasn’t possible — so a faux-finisher was enlisted to create the right look. The client was also able to add gear he’d dreamed of since childhood: McIntosh components to play the vinyl record collection he’s in the process of rebuilding. CEDIA’s judges call the finished product here “an absolutely lovely installation.”

Grupo Mai

The challenges for Grupo Mai here were numerous, including a very limited budget, a client who was at first reticent to transform what was originally designed as a family room into a dedicated home cinema, and a local power supply that’s unreliable. This home cinema — in a new build in a town well outside of Mexico City — solved all the issues and stayed well under budget. Proper sound was the client’s primary request, and, as the integrator explained exactly what was needed to bring the room up to CEDIA’s standards, the homeowner began to balk. After a visit to Grupo Mai’s showroom, however, the client “fell in love with the idea of a well-designed, dedicated space.”

This home cinema solved all its power issues and stayed well under budget. The integration team managed to isolate the room, keep the HVAC systems from interfering with the movie-watching experience, and create lighting design between showings that rivals any commercial theater. Regarding power, the team tells us, “All the electrical installations are protected against voltage peaks and by a lightning rod and Panamax Voltage regulators.” The CEDIA judging panel notes that the finished project was “a great looking room for the budget — really artful.”

Electronic Living

Electronic Living found in this project both a diminutive room and budget. The clients — big fans of the home cinema experience — were building a new residence, and this room and its components were part of a larger integration job. The integrator explains the solutions from there: “On the video front we were to provide an anamorphic projection system that would incorporate a ceiling-mounted projector at a ‘value’ budget that could handle natively the anamorphic conversion of feature films.

Avical Chord Control4 Fleximount ICE JL Audio JVC M&K Ness OME Screen Technics Vicoustic

Controls that mimicked the other integrated systems in the home were a priority for the client. “Regarding the audio, we utilized acoustic treatment in key areas of sound refractions to dampen down the room's acoustics and displace the sound imaging to allow successful acoustic harmonization and balance to what would have been a lively and compromised sound output.” The team installed an acoustically transparent screen as well. Controls that mimicked the other integrated systems in the home were a priority for the client, and Electronic Living also paid careful attention to the HVAC systems, lighting, and power management and conditioning in the room. One challenge: Local ordinances dictate that any habitable room must have natural ventilation, so windows with blackout blinds were included in the design.

Sound Sense The objective for this home cinema project in India was to deliver a room that featured stunning design and the highest quality sound, visuals, and effects to match. The mission was to deliver a lavish home cinema to accommodate a large family, as well as a big circle of friends. With the client’s surgical clinic and office located below the cinema room, acoustics were of high importance. Based on the customer’s requirement, the room size and dimensions, and possible speaker and sub placement, Sound Sense designed a cinema with a maximum occupancy of 33 people. With the client requesting a larger-than-life screen, the integrator opted for a 169" acoustically transparent screen with a Sony VPL-HW45ES projector. The audio aspect of the project was delivered by Phase Technology, with a package that included three LCR speakers, four side-surround speakers, two rear surrounds, four Atmos speakers, and two subwoofers. With the room’s limited size — 24.9 feet by 18.9 feet — and the client requesting 33 seats, Sound Sense designed five rows of seating in non-reclining chairs. The acoustic treatment was designed to rectify the reverberation time (RT) and solve problems relating to flutter echoes. Setting up the correct RT in the room helped to guarantee music clarity, sound definition, and speech intelligibility. Additionally, to attain the objective of precise listening, first reflections were treated, preventing undesirable effects like comb filter. Sound Sense also used diffuser panels in the back of the cinema between the surround and rear speakers. This project also picked up the prize for Best Global Home Cinema, page 131.

This theater, featuring a 13-year-old system that catered to a client who primarily used the room for watching sports, needed an upgrade to a 4K laser projector and Dolby Atmos sound to ensure that the room could also provide a terrific cinematic experience. The room also needed a better isolation solution, since the noise from a nearby utility room was bleeding in. Adding mass and absorption to the walls, sealing the door, and using putty and caulk on outlets and boxes did the trick.

There were other obstacles, says the team at DSI: “Since the designer and homeowner valued aesthetics over the perfect audio room, we had to work around nonacoustically transparent fabric, yet hide the speakers. Although the fabric was not perfectly acoustically transparent, we worked with the general contractor to put materials behind the fabric that would help give us the proper mix of absorptive, reflective, and diffusive elements.” The right HVAC bends, perfect speaker placement, and Dirac room correction helped round out the excellent acoustics in the final product.

The mission here was simply stated: This family loves the movies, but hates going to the theater. They wanted a world class audio and video experience. The client — who’s exceptionally fond of IMAX theaters — wanted a screen as large as possible. As the team at Admit One Home Systems tells us, “We weren’t willing to compromise 16:9 content by installing a 2.35:1 screen, so we decided on 16:9 screen with masking to 2.35:1, which allowed for a more impactful viewing experience from the Sony 4K laser projector.” Additionally, “we were lucky to work with someone who had an appreciation for both high-quality video and audio.” As a result, a 7.1.2 system provides a tremendous immersive sound experience from the content delivered in part from a Kaleidescape Strato player.

The walls on the side reserved for socializing have the look of warm barn wood, while the cinema side maintains the industrial vibe of the theater. The integrator tells us that the theater’s audio system includes, “a Marantz AV7703 along with a QSC Q-Sys system to manage the sound from eight subwoofers, three Procella P28 speakers for the front, and 10 Triad speakers” to provide a great Atmos experience. “The client was so pleased with this, he has since come back requesting an upgrade to a Trinnov processor…and additional ceiling speakers.” A Barco 4K projector provides the image to a 160" Stewart Filmscreen.

Union Place With help from the Erskine Group, Union Place transformed a multi-use basement into a dedicated home theater. The client, “an enthusiast who embraces technology,” according to the integrator, had an existing Control4 system “and wanted to build around that.” The sound system, an immersive Dolby Atmos 9.4.4 configuration, delivers its punch via Triad speakers and Rythmik subs. Oversized, insulated ducts keep HVAC noise at bay, and the sound isolation in this room is extensive: clips, bass traps, cavities filled with play sand, a solid-core door with weather stripping and sealed thresholds, and an enclosure around the Epson projector all help keep the room separated from the rest of the home. This basement retrofit required the team to remove two windows and isolate the noise from a sump pump (and add water sensors to ensure that pump failure wouldn’t lead to bigger problems). All the content systems — Tivo, Apple TV, Roku, and Blu-ray — were upgraded to 4K.

The performance objective set by the client was simple — he wanted the “best cinema installation in the UK.” The client went through a detailed selection process, comparing the latest traditional cinema offers with a left-field opportunity to install the first residential IMAX® in Europe. The process included a trip to Shanghai to review an installation recently completed in a shared apartment block. This resulted in Cornflake being asked to design a cinema that offers the same level of theatrical excellence experienced at the commercial Waterloo cinema, but in a medium-sized underground basement. The space needed to allow for 15 tiered seats and had to provide the ultimate luxurious AV experience. The main challenge was to take a technical system designed for a very large environment and re-engineer it into a residential installation, with all the technology challenges this created. IMAX® had no real residential skills at this stage, so they relied totally on Cornflake’s technical competence to install and integrate the system into the whole house experience. With a brief to exactly replicate the technical standards of a professional IMAX cinema, Cornflake installed dual 4K 2D/3D projectors, an immersive IMAX® curved screen and movable frame, a proprietary IMAX® sound system, a quality equalizer and power amplifier, an HD multi-media content server and player, and provided supports for HD television, Blu-ray, DVD, CD, gaming, and karaoke. Performance on a grand scale is one thing, but generating it for a system that is critically analyzed by a knowledgeable audience is quite another. The result is a residential cinema that is like no other: The very first residential IMAX® in Europe, with all the incredible “wow” factors seen in their extraordinary commercial settings, but in a residential basement.

Effect Mozart To identify the exact needs of the client, Effect Mozart invited him to their showroom. After the visit, the client specified that special attention should be paid to the audio. Effect Mozart managed the full project and was involved in the design stage from start to finish, including the design of the floating floor, door, wall construction, table lighting design, decorative elements design, and architectural lighting. To deliver the best audio, the integrator chose BG Radia speakers and Hypex subwoofer amps. Acoustic design of the transmission line of the subwoofer provides high-performance and linearity, which is suitable for audiophile applications. Effect Mozart was tasked with installing the largest possible screen and for one of the three rows of seating to be a large sofa, which took up a lot of space. To fulfill the client's desire for three rows, the integrator made the back row of seating a bar counter.

The automation in this home elicits the word “Terrific!” from one CEDIA judge. This project was first and foremost about security — and, of course, reliability. What’s one without the other? Cameras throughout the property, when coupled with motion detectors, monitor for any activity in any zone the homeowner chooses. If “Away” or “Vacation” functions are chosen, that activity will be met with a voice response of “YOU HAVE BEEN DETECTED. LEAVE IMMEDIATELY.” Moreover, “there are motion sensors facing entry areas, in corridors; flex sensors under steps illuminate the stairwell. The garage roll-up doors are sensed and controlled. Also, there are sensors to monitor the refrigerators and freezers for failure,” says the integrator. The client also wanted “an end-to-end 18 gig video distribution system,” meaning that, in addition to the 4K cameras, multiple 4K TVs deliver content throughout the home. Eight audio zones and one surround-sound zone were also integrated. The challenge here? Even though it was a new build, the client waited until after the sheetrock was up to ask for distributed audio, which meant a good bit of fishing cables and crawling between trusses for the techs. Advanced Technologies was also responsible for integrating Amazon Echos and Dots into the project. The automation in this home elicits the word “Terrific!” from one CEDIA judge.

The building’s concrete materials meant meticulous attention to detail was required in the initial planning.

The integrator explains the challenges presented by this new home’s construction: “Due to the nature of the build, all walls, floors, and ceilings were cast in concrete on site, which meant meticulous attention to detail was required in the initial planning to ensure a conduit cable plan was executed with precision. It meant our team had to be on-site for every pour to ensure the conduits were properly located and back box terminations were cast for all locations. Every single cable in this house was installed into conduit, and redundancy was factored into the cable design as there would never be a second chance to install later due to the selected construction methods.”

Due to the apartment being separate from the main residence, the client here wanted an easy-to-understand system that they would remember how to use when visiting the property. The reception room is the heart of the apartment. The client’s main TV viewing was to be done in this room, and they wanted to ensure it would deliver a great sound and viewing experience. TwentyTwo Integration installed a 75" Samsung screen on a Future Automation bracket that is neatly mounted on the front wall, with Bowers & Wilkins in-ceiling speakers, an Artcoustic soundbar, and Velodyne subwoofer providing the high-quality audio. Complications arose due to the open-plan nature of this area. Alongside the reception room, there is a dining room and bar area. These can be sectioned off by sliding doors, so acoustics had to be managed accordingly. Sound isolation was were a major concern for the client, as they worried that noise from their apartment would impact their neighbors. This, coupled with the interior designer’s requirement for ceiling speakers, meant that TwentyTwo Integration had to be sure they did all they could to minimize any sound transfer. Along with the builder ensuring the building structure insulation was appropriate, the integrator installed acoustic back boxes to all speakers. The team also included easy-to-access sound equalization settings within the Crestron programming to allow bass levels to be adjusted and a “night time" mode to be set for music and TV viewing in unsociable hours.

Zio Group, LLC As the ZIO Group tells us, “The client purchased a relatively new custom estate home with an extensive AV system. Unfortunately, not much of it worked, and some of it was never completed when originally installed. The client’s goal was simple: deliver a system with the same functionality as the original system, but make it easy to use and cost effective to maintain.” That description’s an understatement: the racks, for example, were a tangled rat’s nest of cabling installed with little logic or care. To cut costs, the integrator rose to the challenge of making the original gear “talk” to the upgrades and wound up actually combining both Crestron and Control4 elements. The ultimate solution included 32 zones of stereo audio, three surround-sound zones, 10 zones of video (including a dedicated theater), lighting, security systems, a professional grade gigabit network, pool and spa control, and more.

Intuitive Homes & Ultamation

The objective was to provide a fully integrated home as part of a complete renovation and expansion of an existing property. The client wanted to use the power and versatility of a Crestron system to integrate all media, security, and lifestyle requirements. As the family entertains frequently, Intuitive Homes and Ultamation implemented a “follow me” feature on the Crestron TSW touch panels, so that they can start their evening in the kitchen and then move to the entertainment building and have their music or background video follow them. This was achieved by utilizing the Bluetooth pinpoint beacons on the panels and the Bluetooth integration on the Crestron app.

The video distribution is handled via Crestron DigitalMedia with six inputs and eight outputs, while the audio is done by 14 zones of Crestron Sonnex comprising an 8+2 zone main unit and four zone expansion. The entertainment building features three Sonnex zones of audio in the same area, comprised of floorstanding speakers, ceiling speakers, and also the TV soundbar. As two sides of the building are glazed sliding doors, Intuitive Homes and Ultamation also had to consider external speakers for this space. The formal lounge benefits from a TV on a Future Automation lift that raises the TV out of a built-in bookcase and rotates it to the predefined viewing angle.

Homeplay Thanks to a 20-year long relationship with this client, Homeplay was contracted to design and install the systems in this integrated home. While the client knew that he wanted distributed AV, lighting control, CCTV, remote access over the HVAC system, and a way of knowing when staff were entering and exiting the apartment, he left the details to his trusted technology advisor, Homeplay. There were a lot of obstacles during this project, but Homeplay found a solution for each challenge. The huge open-planned space presented very few options for placement of speakers and TVs, so the integrator opted to hide much of the equipment in the custom joinery. Two large freestanding cabinets were designed with a 65" TV installed on each side. Each cabinet hides two LCR speakers and four individual subwoofers.

Cyberhomes This home, with its stunning views of the dunes along the shoreline of Western Michigan, is an outdoorsman’s oasis. The team at Bekins gives us this great description: “The ground floor serves as an entry point to this uniquely integrated home. It features a state-ofthe-art gym, media room, and a oneof-a-kind trophy room that would make any Cabela’s jealous. “A trek upstairs to the Dune Level reveals a scenic, woodsy retreat with three bedrooms and a guest suite. The bedrooms and guest suite feature in-ceiling speakers to enjoy the buffet of media options, en-suite bathrooms, and walk-in closets. Automated blinds provide a little more privacy and lighting control to visitors in the guest suite. The Dune Level also hosts a craft room and kids area for fun family activities. “With whole-home audio in every room, automated shades, lighting control, and touchpads and keypads all around — setting the scene in this home is just a touch away.”

DSI Luxury Technology Entertainment is key in this whole-home integration, and the centerpiece is a family room that’s tied to a game room. “This large entertaining space had to be outfitted with great video options,” says DSI. “We designed a dual display system that includes an 85" Sony XBR TV for daily viewing and a 135" projection screen that comes out of the floor under a motorized hatch for ‘big event’ movie nights.” The client wanted TVs nearly everywhere, and the equipment list includes Samsung Frame TVs, Sony OLEDs, Seura Mirror, Seura Hydra (for the shower), and Seura Storm outdoor TVs. Sixteen zones of audio are fed by Savant music servers that deliver music to Sonance and Clark Synthesis Underwater speakers. A Ruckus network system was installed, as were CCTV and alarms for security. All the home’s HVAC zones are integrated into the Savant control system, and lighting control and the home’s 32 Lutron Sivoia shades control brightness and react to the warming of the sun.

A very well thought-out installation.

This property is a large site, consisting of five separate buildings and substantial gardens. SONA’s brief was to approach this as a single project. The client wanted a wireless network that was seamless across the site, covering every building and the exterior spaces between — nearly 500 feet in some cases — delivering music and TV content throughout the main house, annex, summer house, and gardens. Lighting control is distributed around the site, with panels creating a system with over 170 circuits. The system also controls water features, two sets of motorized gates, 23 motorized window treatments, and motorized skylights on the second floor. Gas lanterns are also controlled via the lighting system, with ignition circuits triggered from switching relays.

Twenty-six HD cameras were installed. The CCTV features a video analytic system that can detect human motion with extreme accuracy. The system uses POE IP cameras, which sit on the main network but are on a separate VLAN. An intercom includes a total of five entry panels, two internal call panels, and apps to allow full communication with entry panels, which also feature proximity readers and integrate with electronic locks in the main house and annex. AV sources include Sky, Apple TVs, and Kaleidescape. The main lounge has a 5.1 surround system with a 55" TV discreetly housed in a custom cabinet with a lift mechanism. The main control system carries out automated sequences to prepare all AV zones for viewing. When a user selects a source, the system automatically turns on the devices required and switches them to the appropriate input and settings.

Cyberhomes This property was being completely gutted and the interior layouts were being changed and extended to create a luxury home. The kitchen/dining/bar/ nook area is a large open-plan space. In order to ensure good sound quality for this large area, the in-ceiling Bowers & Wilkins loudspeakers were enhanced with four discreetly located, in-wall Triad subwoofers. When the cinema in the dedicated space is turned off, a “purge cycle” is activated with the air conditioning and air circulation system to refresh the room as many of the homeowner’s friends are smokers. Cyberhomes designed a lighting control system for a large custommade fish tank full of tropical fish that can simulate storms with lightning. The team also made it possible for a CCTV camera to be attached to the tank so that the owner can monitor it remotely.

This home site was discovered by a couple who lived nearby — they’d noticed the property from their pontoon boat and remarked that the view from that home must be tremendous. Shortly thereafter, the property they coveted came on the market. The couple bought the parcel, knocked down the existing building, and then went “all-in” with their new home.

The home boasts “a 10-Zone/10Source Control4 4K Video Matrix that provides a stereo downmix of all sources to a 16x16 Audio Matrix,” says The Premier Group. “Video sources include three Tivo Bolts, Sony Blu-ray, Apple TV, and Roku. Audio sources native to the Control4 system are Tune-In Radio, Pandora, and Napster. The audio matrix is time-delayed to accurately sync each stereo zone with the three surround systems.”

AVD picked a Savant platform to control every aspect of this home: AV, dedicated theater, CCTV, HVAC, lighting, floor heating, heated towel rails, and much more. This three-story home — with amenities such as a pool, tennis court, home gym, two wine cellars, and two garages (one with an automotive turntable) — has incredibly complicated climate automation that not only controls blinds and shades but evacuates warm air from the ceilings. The project also includes a home theater with a 186" 2.39:1 format screen, extensive “threelayer” security (internal, perimeter, and external), and 77 custom designed (by AVD) lighting switch plates.

But it’s the client testimony that really tells the story here: “Our experience with AVD and their team from the design phase to installation to execution/integration and after-service has been incredible. We completed our home eight months ago, and I can’t speak more highly of the platform AVD created for us. We have a very large home with many elements, and our interface is simply fantastic. The systems capabilities are brilliant, but more importantly, they are so user friendly. The members of the AVD team were diligent, professional, and timely in the execution of our project. I truly can’t recommend AVD and their team more highly.”

The client requested a smart home system that integrated beautifully and discreetly into the design of the room. Using iPads and touchscreens, Environ was requested to design a user interface that is styled after Armani Hotels. The integrator replicated a photo of the interface in CAD and Photoshop, had it signed off by the client, and then built and programmed it. The house boasts two media rooms. The ground floor space is designed around Sonus Faber Aida speakers and a 75" TV, while the third-floor room features a Barco projector, Sonus Faber speakers, and a large dropdown screen. In both media rooms, interior design was key, so integration into joinery was of paramount importance. The subs were hidden in both locations. Environ worked with the blinds specialist to deliver and control blinds that appear from floor boxes — effectively being installed upside down. Audio was of key importance in the relaxation area. Environ opted for statement CAT floorstanding speakers in the main areas, with secondary rooms featuring CAT in-ceiling speakers. The client requested that staff have access to the control for all systems from a central touchscreen. This allows staff to assist in any requests in any room, as well as preparing rooms for the arrival of the client. User control is provided through the Crestron app, which was installed on multiple iPads throughout the property.

Independent generators were needed on each car. Each train car had to operate as an independent system, since the operator (Ferromex) mixes and matches wagons on each trip.

This stunning yacht integration — which the CEDIA judges simply call “a beautiful project” — is a retrofit of the world’s largest catamaran. In addition to the usual challenges presented by marine retrofits, such as working in existing (and usually incredibly tight) rack spaces and ensuring that the gear was weathertight, Liquid Automation had a total of 11 weeks to complete the job. The first five were spent planning the project, then a mere six to wrap up the integration. Additionally, the boat was moored in Malta — no less than 18,000 kilometers away from Liquid Automation HQ. Nine zones of AV and four audio-only zones are featured in the ship’s entertainment upgrades, with room for later expandability and upgrades. Additionally, Liquid Automation notes that “as this vessel is capable of worldwide travel, the satellite TV decoders are designed to be swapped out as the vessel moves to new locations.” The client also needed remote monitoring for the vessel, a complete overhaul of the lighting systems, a robust wired and wireless network with five separate VLANs, and climate controls that can handle drawing humidity away from the racks.

Mar Adentro is a floating, five-star hotel in Los Cabos that’s won no less than 20 awards for its design and architecture. The owner wanted each room, bar, restaurant, and common area to have an integrated technology experience that matched the rest of the hotel’s luxurious amenities. Each room has its own set of controls (via tablet or TV screen) for video, audio, shades, and HVAC. Specific, automated scenes for the rooms and common areas are run via a Control4 system. Smartlab tells us that events include: • “Welcome scenes that activate music, blinds, and lights in the rooms when the guest enters the room for the first time,

• “Door events that trigger the blinds, HVAC, and lights for energy saving, when the guest leaves the room, and • "Scheduled scenes that activate music and lighting scenes in common area and playlists that change depending on time of day and location. Those scenes are automated in the restaurants, pool, bars, and so on.” The all-white components are driven by racks in areas outside the rooms, which makes for easier cleaning in the rooms and service access for the racks themselves without disturbing guests.

Cornflake The mission for this Hyde Park project was for anyone, of any technical ability, to be able to operate the system and be completely immersed in the technology and its many features. The client wanted Cornflake to integrate digital 21st century technology into a heritage block of Art Deco apartments, to provide an internationally recognized operating system with pictorial icons and multilingual instructions, and to deliver technology that could perform check-in duties. Using personal choices garnered from an advanced questionnaire with the occupants, Cornflake pre-programmed the heating, lighting, air conditioning, window treatments, networking, and AV in each apartment to deliver a unique home-away-from-home experience. The AV package is particularly impressive. Running from a dedicated private bank of 30 satellites, guests can stream media direct from their mobiles and tablets, and each apartment has access to hundreds of international media outlets.

Custom Sight & Sound The Bishops London is a high-end development that encompasses three mansion houses and a fourth building, which is divided into four apartments and a penthouse. Custom Sight & Sound had to install a system that would satisfy both pre-occupancy requirements — door entry, lighting, and BMS control — while offering sufficient upgrade paths for the eventual end purchasers. The integrator opted for products from Crestron’s Pyng range in order to keep costs down, while still providing a highquality system. Using Crestron’s Green Light lighting control solution, Custom Sight & Sound was able to operate from a single processor within each property, thus increasing value across the entire scheme. All integrated systems are combined into a custom GUI that was developed within the integrator’s own programming department to provide a simple and reliable control solution across the development.

This 5,600-square-foot, $1.35 million “experience center” is designed “to educate and inform our various stakeholders (customers, employees, builders, designers, architects, community) regarding brand quality and what makes our key manufacturers the best in the world,” according to Hanson. To that end, features include a “house within a showroom,” to illustrate technology integration in a real-world setting. Beyond the rooms of the “home” (including a kitchen, bedroom, living room, and many more), other display areas include “various approaches to things: for example, speakers are shown as floor standing, bookshelf, in-ceiling, in-wall, invisible, and in various sizes to match lighting, quality differences by room, etc.” and “an array of products that provide a good, better, best, and ultimate selection to accommodate most budgets.”

Key vendors are represented with video tours of their factories, exploded views of the products, and careful explanations regarding the aspects of those products and how they differ from other, similar devices. Hanson also provides the history of their relationship with those vendors, so visitors understand exactly why the specific products are being offered.

Hanson’s showroom is beautiful, functional, and packed with solutions for any client.

Hanson adds that the showroom reflects a fundamental company philosophy: “We don't sell products and services; instead, we help people buy products and services.”

BlueSpeed AV This two-floor, 30,000-square-foot space is for much more than showing off integrated home systems. It houses a cutting-edge office space and conference room, a golf simulator, and even a classic car collection. In fact, the building houses four separate and distinct businesses: kitchen design, investments, custom AV integration, and software. The space doubles as a hangout for family and friends of the businesses too — it even has a sports bar. The point here is a demonstration of technology integration in a dizzying array of settings. From the demo kitchens to a candy shop, the automated scenes, lighting, climate control, and AV systems allow a customer of any of the four businesses to experience this technology. The CEDIA judges really like the concept of a client coming in for kitchen design, say, and receiving multiple exposures to a broad range of integrated tech.

The team at DayaTech had three clear goals in mind when they sat down with a local, wellknown designer: • “We had a vision to create a simple and easy to navigate experience center. We wanted to ensure visitors would need minimum effort to interact with all the aspects of smart home technology and seamlessly move between the room vignettes. The experience center is based around sharing usage scenarios and ‘day in the life’ experiences that the client can expect in their own environments. • “We also wanted to ensure that we captured the look and feel of an aesthetically pleasing living space that minimized the intrusion of technology. This ensured that our clients would immediately feel ‘at home’ within the space and could easily see it transition into their own home or business environment. • “Our final goal was to create an experience center that would be highly adaptable to multiple usage scenarios and industry verticals. Our main curved branding wall in the kitchen area has marketing boards that are easily interchangeable depending on the client, whether they be residential, commercial, hospitality, or assisted living aligned.”

The pages and pages of clear, concise, and complete documentation that accompany this home and its featured bowling alleys point to this project’s honors in other categories. All or part of this project picked up nods from the CEDIA judges as a Finalist in the Best integrated Home, Level IV segment (page 82), as a Finalist for Best Innovative Solution (page 114), and the top trophy in Lighting for the work Big Picture Solutions did to make the building’s private bowling alleys a spectacular display of light and shadow that changes with every roll of the ball or shift in the score (page 116).

complex, encompassing multiple systems for automated lighting, shades, distributed audio and video, security, and network solutions that cover every inch of this 16,850-square-foot property and the landscaping that surrounds it. The documentation includes a Wi-Fi heat map for the entire property, meticulous cable and rack diagrams, and schematics for lighting design that raise the bar for every CEDIA project in the years to come. As one of CEDIA’s Awards judges notes, “You can’t even begin a project like this if you don’t have great documentation.” The client is equally complimentary regarding the finished work: “It’s a complete success.”

All or part of this project picked up nods from the CEDIA judges. Big Picture Solutions 1001 Jupiter Park Drive, Suite 120, Jupiter, FL 33458, USA +1 561 935 8500 bpsinc.com CEDIA Member Since 2014

The CEDIA judging panel is impressed with the efficiency of the documentation that accompanies this whole-home integration (which picked up the CEDIA Award for Best Integrated Home, Level II — see page 62). The judges say that even though the documents are lengthy, they “make total sense.” It’s critical for a project this size that, if another contractor or homeowner needs the enclosed info, it’s clear and readable. The Argus Technologies team had a client here who’d been burned by a bad tech install in the past and, as a result, tread very carefully. As the client’s trust in the integrator grew, the project expanded, and this kind of growth in scale and complexity

demanded extremely precise record-keeping. Argus Technologies even wound up handling another aspect of the job they were qualified to take on: all the home’s electrical work. This hadn’t been part of the original contract. The systems in this home are extensive and include audio and video distribution, HVAC, pool control, networking, security and surveillance, and even a garage with an automotive turntable. The Argus team managed to integrate three separate systems in the garage that holds the turntable: door open/ close, security arm/disarm, and 180-degree vehicle rotation all with the touch of one button.

Clinical Retreat // COMPANY

Sound Sense This project in Gujarat in India required Sound Sense to overcome several challenges — the main one was fitting 33 seats into this medium-sized room. To do so, Sound Sense chose the right seating for this space — the room doesn’t appear small or packed with too many squeezed-in seats. With the client also requesting a large screen, the integrator encountered another issue of ensuring the viewing angles were correct and that the audio was of high-quality for everyone in the seats. Again, they delivered on all this. Sound Sense showed great craftsmanship on the rack and provided a high level of documentation, including cable ratio minimums, which the judges say was uncommon but brilliant to see. Overall, the judges are particularly impressed with the passion that Sound Sense showed and how they channeled it into delivering a great cinema room for their client.

Audio Images The challenge here is in the name, as the Audio Images team noted: “The clients wanted to be able to host everyone both inside and out of the space, so that all could enjoy.” That “inside-out” experience meant that an entire wall of this room consisted of movable glass panels that open into a large courtyard. This room required careful calibration: “The system was carefully tuned, voiced, and optimized utilizing digital parametric equalization, by PMI Ltd.” The 9.4.2 speaker Dolby Atmos speaker system includes LCR speakers behind an acoustically transparent screen and four compact subs. A Barco Madea projector provides a 4K image to a 1.78:1 image area. The room even includes a system for the client’s re-discovery of his love for vinyl featuring components by McIntosh. More info on this project — which won a Level III Americas award — can be found on pages 16-17.

Intuitive Homes & Ultamation

BEST INTEGRATED HOME

This residential project in Cheshire, UK, was no small feat for Intuitive Homes and Ultamation — it lasted 13 months and saw the team design and install a fully integrated system into this family home that was both renovated and extended. The judges considered this “an all-round well-done job with some nice extra automation features.” One that stood out in particular was the “follow me” feature, which was accomplished by utilizing the Bluetooth pinpoint beacons on the panels and the Bluetooth

integration on the Crestron app. Another was the integration with the alarm sensors for room occupancy. The project checked the boxes when it came to rack work, user interface, the addition of hard button remotes for the media room, lighting, audio, and documentation. The judges really didn’t have a bad word to say about Intuitive Homes and Ultamation’s work here, which made this project an easy selection when it came to choosing the Global Integrated Home winner.

For more information on this project, turn to page 66 as Intuitive Homes and Ultamation also scooped the prize for Best Integrated Home (EMEA) Level II.
