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.

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. ...
