How They Did It: Big Screens and Man Caves

Ed Wenck
Jan 30, 2020



This Experience Center from Atlanta Audio & Automation is a Control4 Certified Showroom, with displays that include:

  • A living room with a Vutec ScreenArt System and a 55-inch Sony OLED TV,
  • A conference area with a Seura Smart Mirror — and total voice control of the entire showroom,
  • And a hospitality area with a Nexus21 motorized lift that brings a 40-inch Sony 4k TV up from under the counter-top.
There’s also a “man cave,” which features a Screen Innovations 120-inch Zero G Motorized Screen & Sony 4k Projector. That screen raises to reveal several Sony TVs. Sound in the “man cave” is delivered via an Origin Acoustics Dolby Atmos System using 10-inch, three-way in-ceiling pivoting speakers.

Outdoor solutions are represented with a 55" Sunbrite waterproof TV (with an active water feature) and an Origin Acoustics outdoor speaker system.



Speaking of water, there’s a Dam-It Automated Valve system to demo smart plumbing shutoff functions.

There are also Lutron QS Motorized Shades throughout the showroom, an eight-camera Luma surveillance system, and a Pakedge BakPak network system.

One thing that truly impressed the CEDIA judging panel, however, was the installation of the 168-inch LED panelized display. One judge says, quote: “This is the first time I’ve seen it in a showroom. It really pushes the boundaries, and it tells me they’re willing to address the audio challenges that come with this kind of display.” Careful speaker placement and calibration are in order for a screen like this to give the proper illusion of sound coming from an actor’s mouth. This feature also includes A Vutec ScreenArt artwork that lowers to cover up the panels when the system is off.

The result: A win in the category of Best Showroom in the 2019 CEDIA Awards.
