SK Vision FAQ's, Covering: Home Cinema Intstallation, Home Audio, Multiroom Audio and Home Automation

What are home cinema installations?
A home cinema installation can be anything from a simple TV with surround sound set up to a fully integrated audio video system in a purpose-made room in a basement or other part of the house. This would include behind–the-scenes hardware to give the impression of wireless speakers either invisible or discreetly hidden. SK Vision Home Cinema London & Home Cinema Dorset designs and installs custom home cinemas to replicate the cinema experience: remote-controlled HD TV, screen, projector, lighting, curtains and/or blinds.

Who should have a home cinema installation?
Anyone can have a home cinema installation but it depends on the size of your house and the budget. If it is to be done thoroughly and to your specification then it needs to be left to the professionals. SK Vision have a team of highly qualified engineers and technical experts who can install exactly what will meet your needs both now and in the future.

What are the benefits of a home cinema installation?
A private cinema or theatre gives personal enjoyment of your family and friends. You can choose the time the show starts and the movie you want to see. SK Vision will provide the perfect theatre ambiance built to your specification. We have a team of technological experts to provide a total package you can control with ease and without moving from your chair.

What are the costs of a home cinema installation?
The cost of home cinema installation depends on what is involved. A very simple installation with a TV and surround sound system costs very much less than converting a room to replicate the cinema experience. If the idea of a home cinema installation appeals, you should talk to us at SK Vision. We can install the right equipment fully calibrated to suit your property. It is better to talk to us first so you find out what is possible for your home, your budget and your imagination.

What is the difference between a home cinema installation and a home theatre installation?
Nothing. “Home theater” is the term is normally used in the United States.

What home theatre products do SK Vision recommend for home cinema installation?
Home theatre products that we recommend and regularly install include Pioneer, Loewe, Samsung, Bowers and Wilkins (B&W), Artcoustic, Mythos, Lexicon, Arcam, Marantz, Crestron, Anthony Gallo, Rotel, Rel, and Linn.

What is best for home cinema installations, LCD, Plasma or Projector?
A home cinema can be based around a flat screen plasma TV, LCD TV or a projector with a cinama screen. A projector-based cinema is the most cost effective option when screen measurements exceed 65 inches. A projector and screen have the following advantages:
Easier and cheaper to install
Can be dropped down form ceiling recesses for a more flexible use of the room
A screen image can be as large as your room will allow. TV screens are limited to 103 inches.
The disadvantage of a projected image is that the room has to be in near darkness for the best image intensity.

Where does SK Vision perform home cinema installations?
SK Vision performs home cinema installations throughout the UK including: Berkshire, Devon, Dorset, Essex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Kent, London, Surrey and Wiltshire. We will also will consider projects in other parts of the UK and overseas.

Are prices cheaper for Home Cinema in London and Dorset?
It really makes little difference and comparisons tell you nothing. Every installation is purpose-built to suit the client’s brief, the building and whether the house occupied or being refurbished. If you are thinking if installing Home Cinema, SK Vision will offer advice and a quotation.

When is the best time to install a home theatre system?
Unquestionably, before you move into your new home. The best home cinema requires a dedicated small room to house the racking of hardware and considerable ducting for miles of cables under the floor and within the walls. Inevitably redecoration has to be considered. On the other hand simpler installations are possible without too much damage to the fabric of your home but it will not look as nice.

What is Home Automation
A home automation system can be as comprehensive as you like – or can afford. A fully automated home will have such features as: multiroom entertainment systems that are independently and wirelessly controlled throughout the house. You can also have wireless control of lighting, curtains, blinds, garage doors, security, garden lighting and so on. Almost anything is possible even recording a TV programme or turning the oven on using your mobile telephone. SK Vision will offer ideas that will astonish you.

How much does Home Automation cost?
Depends on what automated systems you want; the house you live in, whether you are in residence and the degree of refurbishment you are prepared to accept. To install an automated home properly, the cost can seem trivial compared to the disruption whilst whole fabric of the building is torn apart to install the central hardware and the cabling to go with it. The best home automation installation is done when the house undergoes a major make-over.

What is Multiroom Audio and Multiroom Audio Visual?
Multiroom Audio is simple installing hidden speakers in every room about the house with one central receiver capable of delivering independently and remotely controlled programmes to each of them simultaneously. It’s like having a combined radio, MP3 or i-Pod and a CD player hidden in every room you can control remotely to suit yourself. Add TVs to this list and it becomes a Multiroom Audio Visual.

How much does Multiroom Audio cost?
The cost depends on what you want to include in the installation, the house you live in and the amount of disruption you are prepared to put up with whilst the installation takes place. It can be done inexpensively if you are prepared to put up with visible cables running around every room. If you want to the job elegantly by hiding the hardware rack and the miles of cabling, you must be prepared to vacate the building while we lift floor boards and rout out channels in the walls for the ducting. Then there’s the cost of redecoration.
