Time For Gaming

We're joined by Simon Gregory of integration firm, Cinema Rooms, and Rik Henderson, all-round gaming fanatic and Senior Editor at technology website, Pocket-Lint, to talk about how gaming might change the home technology business in a post-COVID-19 world. The UK is the 6th largest video game market in terms of consumer revenues, after China, USA, Japan and Germany. Approximately 37.3m people in the UK play games. Consumer spend on games was valued at a record £5.7bn in 2018 with consoles sales up 6.5% to £702m, despite no new consoles being released. But are these gamers a market for home technology professionals? In fact, should integrators be selling gaming rooms as a distinct concept to their customers, rather than as a bolt-on to their home cinema business? And, what gaming technology will change how integrators can deliver a great, immersive experience in the future? This episode was recorded before the current lockdown came into effect. The Integrated Home is supported by Meridian Audio, AWE Europe and Sony and is a Wildwood production. ...

Passing Off, Recruitment Issues and Yoda

In the warm and comfortable surroundings of the cinema showroom that belongs to Bespoke Home Cinemas in the fine city of Leeds, we're joined by Mel and Giff Malcolm, the husband and wife team behind Bespoke Home Cinemas, and from across the Pennines, we have Oliver Hall from CEDIA award winning firm, Ultamation. Together, we explore the question of image rights and passing off. What happens if you find that a photo of one of your installations has popped up on the website of another integrator, with the implication that it's their work and not yours? What are your options to put a stop to this kind of disreputable behaviour? We’ll also be looking at another problem area for professional home integrators - recruitment. How do you bring new blood into the industry? What attracts the right people and where do those employees of the future come from? Does short-term collaboration work if you want to scale up for larger projects to deliver a professional solution for your client?
