Show Notes

What’s happening in home cinema? Is the big screen business going to get even bigger, and more immersive, now that we have IMAX Enhanced? What will this mean for dealers? And, what’s going on with content? At the recent CEDIA Expo in San Diego, keynote presenter, John Penney from Twentieth Century Fox painted a picture of IT companies taking over the entertainment industry and fighting amongst each other to deliver content directly to consumers. Meantime, Netflix and SkyQ have announced that content from Netflix will be woven directly into the fabric of the SkyQ user interface. So, who’s bossing what your customers are watching and what else is changing in home cinema that affects how we create immersive experiences for clients? Chris Jones, Managing Director of Ideaworks and Ian Bolt, Chairman of Custom Sight & Sound, join us to look at what’s going on and help you make sense of it all. We also try to find out who is better in a classic pop head-to-head that pitches Kate Bush against Earth, Wind & Fire! This episode is recorded in the cinema at the Ideaworks Experience Centre, Great Portland Street, London. The Integrated Home supports Together4Cinema – to find out more, visit www.together4cinema.co.uk. Sponsored by Meridian Audio, The Integrated Home is a Wildwood and Alfi Media Production.
