The CIT Group were looking to create a stunning cinema and enhance the suite of amenities for residents of their luxurious Regents Crescent Development, they chose Smartcomm. The cinema room was given to Smartcomm as a ‘white box’ for a turn-key solution. Working closely with Interior Designers Millier, they delivered their vision with the technology to match.
Every detail was harmonized, down to the brass anodized aluminum feature trim of the fixtures. Behind the 2.5m wide acoustically transparent DT Frontier Projection Screen is a powerful array of Artcoustic speakers. Together with hidden wall and ceiling Artcoustic speakers, they assist in delivering a resounding 9.2.4 Dolby Atmos surround sound system. A Barco Balder CinemaScope projector vividly delivers 4K resolution images for a truly immersive experience.
This exquisitely luxurious cinema was entirely installed by Smartcomm, working closely with CIT and Millier, from the seating, wall paneling, and flooring to the lighting, automation, and technology. The cinema needed to be elegant and technically advanced, yet easy to use and future-proof. From the artcoustic range, the following speakers added to the character of the home cinema.
