Show Notes

The twin crises of climate breakdown and biodiversity loss are the most serious issues of our time. So, what can, or should, home technology companies be doing to be more sustainable and what steps can be taken to address the climate emergency? In this discussion we're joined by Alex Josling from Seven Integration, Tas Kyriacou from IDS, Chris Turner from Faradite and April Sotomayor from Investors in the Environment to look at how our industry can reduce its impact on the environment. This talk was produced by CEDIA and first broadcast as a webinar as part of ISE Digital 2021. Our thanks to both CEDIA and Integrated Systems Europe for their support. We're grateful also to our series partners AWE Europe, Sony and Distributed by Meridian for their backing. We support Together For Cinema.

Lighting, Awards and Experience Centres

We examine the big issue of lighting in the company of Homeplay’s Managing Director, James Ratcliffe, alongside Nic Black, Principal of The Pyramid Group. We ask how integrators can bring lighting design and lighting control into their business. What's involved and how will embracing lighting change your business offering for the better? As the CEDIA Awards open for entry, we also talk to James and Nic about taking part in Award schemes. What does it take to win an Award and is it worth all the effort? The episode is recorded in one of the industry’s newest showroom spaces, the Homeplay Experience Centre in Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey. James tells us about the Experience Centre, explaining how it came about, how the project evolved and, now it's open, how it's working. We're very excited to launch a new, in fact, our first competition.

Big Cinema, Small Space

In Big Cinema, Small Space, Jools Browning from CEDIA Member of Excellence, BrownHen Solutions, and Barry Sheldrick, Sales Director of Meridian Audio, take us on a deep technical dive into a very special project - the conversion of a compact downstairs room into a knockout, ten-seater cinema. What design and engineering skills are needed? How should the room be treated? And how does Meridian Room Correction elevate the home cinema experience in this type of project? This episode is an edited audio-only version of a webinar first broadcast in the Summer of 2020.

Design Meets Technology and The Showroom Experience

Whatever Earth Wind & Fire might say, we all know that September is a busy, back to work month. The holidays are a dim and distant memory, the kids are heading off to school and it’s time to gear up for show season - a time that's full of innovations, new ideas and education opportunities. From the 15th until the 23rd September, London is taken over by the London Design Festival, so there's no better time to talk about interior design and home technology. We welcome two special guests to look at how designers and integrators collaborate, sometimes collide, but, ultimately, can work better together for the mutual benefit of clients. From the world of interior design, we're joined by Susie Rumbold of Tessuto Interiors, former President of the British Institute of Interior Design, and from award-winning, London integration business, ClearSphere, we have Director, Alistair Ingram. Our home for this episode is the Crestron showroom, located on the second floor of the sourcing mecca for savvy interior designers, the Design Centre in Chelsea Harbour. Later in the show, Phil Pini and Kate Fauset from Crestron are our guests. They will explain the showroom experience, how it works and give their insights into how this facility helps bring home technology to life for the benefit of interior designers, developers and integrators. ...
