There are many homeowners that really like the idea of a real home cinema in their homes, but are put off by having the screen and projector in place all the time. This new Buyers' Guide shows how to achieve the 'wow factor' and the thrill of home entertainment without any of the disadvantages.
Overpelt, Belgium (PRWEB) October 19, 2009
Discreet home cinema technology can turn a living room, family room or even a bedroom into a fully functional home cinema with the touch of a button. The Buyers' Guide is a plain-English explanation of the technology. Its step-by-step approach sets out the options available to homeowners for each of the major elements of a home cinema, with an explanation of what each piece of equipment does and how it works. The Buyers' Guide is illustrated with inspiring, full-colour images of home cinema installations based on products from the Beamax discreet home cinema family.
Introducing the Buyers' Guide on the opening day of Grand Designs Live Otto Tromm, the founder of Beamax and the designer of the Dellegno range, said: "There are many homeowners that really like the idea of a real home cinema in their homes, but are put off by having the screen and projector in place all the time. This new Buyers' Guide shows how to achieve the 'wow factor' and the thrill of home entertainment without any of the disadvantages."
Visitors to the Grand Designs Live 'House of the Future' saw the 80-inch Beamax Dellegno motorised projection screen rise from its custom-built, freestanding cabinet, converting a living space to a home cinema in less than 20 seconds. When no longer required, a touch of a button lowered the screen back into its cabinet, styled as a piece of contemporary furniture.
Otto Tromm believes that this new generation of home cinema technology will appeal to a much broader cross-section of homeowners than traditional systems that require a dedicated room. "We are delighted that Grand Designs Live recognised the advances in home cinema technology with the inclusion of the Beamax Dellegno projection screen. Visitors were able to see how a real home cinema can be built into their homes in such a way that their rooms don't lose their original function or look. This is the concept of discreet home cinema - an idea that Beamax has pioneered."
Other Beamax products include a projector lift, which automatically lowers and switches on a projector housed in a contemporary light fitting, projection screens for installation in ceilings and flat-panel surround sound loudspeakers concealed behind grills printed with the homeowner's choice of graphics or images. The Buyers' Guide features all of these innovations, with explanations and illustrations of how they are used.
