Finite Solutions

Finite Solutions faced a tough brief; to create a unique and truly immersive big screen experience in the basement. A key requirement was that the cinema screen needed to be as big as possible for the ultimate ‘wow’ factor. Image quality was hugely important as the system would be used by the family for watching movies, quality TV series and sporting events. The installer opted for a subtle electric drop down screen to allow access to the front wall storage. A high quality 3.3m wide tab tension model from Screen Research’s ‘Supreme 2’ range was chosen. The JVC DLA-X95 projector was specified to complete the display product mix; together these products deliver fabulous image quality and 3D capability. The front three speakers, subwoofer and a Middle Atlantic ‘Pull Twist’ style rack were built into the front

wall joinery. These are subtly disguised behind speaker fabric and give the front wall a unique look when the screen is raised. The screen is also acoustically transparent as it covers the speakers when it is dropped.

To ensure the system was simple to use, Finite Solutions added a URC universal touchscreen to control all aspects of the system. Careful consideration was given to the lighting design. Star capsule lamp fittings were dotted across the ceiling to create an interesting lighting effect. The light circuits and the skylight blackout blinds, are controlled from two Lutron Grafik Eyes allowing several pre-programmed lighting scenes to be easily accessed and adjusted from the cinema remote or the wall keypad.
