Family Television Room - West of Peterborough

During the update and renovation to one area of the client’s property, he decided that inclusion of a new dedicated television room with surround sound capabilities was required. Due to the nature of the room and the requirements to leave certain original aspects of it in place, a wall mounted Kef speaker system was decided on.


The client requested to large, wall mounted television, showing Sky HD and Blu-Ray playback, with the main emphasis placed on sport, films and gaming for his children. However, ease of use was also a high priority within the project’s remit.


In order to simplify the control process, and make selection of the any of the available sources from a single handset, a Control4 system was installed. The Control4 home controller, along with the Pioneer Surround Sound amplifier and video sources were installed in a purpose built ventilated cupboard at the rear of the room, inside a Middle Atlantic AV rack. In addition to the video sources for the room an integrated Control4 iPod dock for music was fitted on top of the cupboard, with selection of music stored on a connected iPod/iPhone available from the OLED display on the Control4 remote control, or from the on-screen graphical user interface on the television. Lastly, we installed a wireless access point next to the iPod Dock, so connection of a laptop or other peripheral device to the internet could be achieved in this room, which was out of range of his primary broadband router.
