Big Cinema, Small Space

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?

The Integrated Home is supported by Meridian Audio, AWE Europe and Sony and is a Wildwood production. ...

Retail Plus Installation or Installation Only?

We're in Kent to talk with two businesses who have taken quite different paths in the industry. Potters Home Digital are an established company who began life as a retailer and have added installation successfully to their business. Micarta are a new and focused integration firm, born from the ashes of Challenge Control. In conversation with directors from each company, Alex Jones and Gavin Baker, we find out what’s working for them and how they’re growing and sustaining a business in home integration. We’ll also be learning plenty about the market in Kent. How similar is work here to business in London and the commuter belt counties? Where are the opportunities? And, what are the advantages for a local business that’s tuned in to its community? Gavin reveals what makes him tick in our Hot Seat Q&A. This episode is recorded in the Lilford Gallery in Canterbury. Thanks to pod partners Meridian Audio, AWE, Sony and Integrated Systems Europe for their support in making the series possible. ...
