Today’s audio-video equipment offers crystal-clear images and immersive sound fields once only found at the best movie theaters in town.

The Cinematic Experience

Encore Audio Video started in 1981 as a specialty retailer for Sony. Since then, we've watched Sony continue to lead the industry in the technology that brought the cinematic experience to homeowners. In 2022, they released three native 4K HDR laser projectors. To say the images they produce are stunning is an understatement.

They offer exceptionally vivid, detailed images with unrivaled color and contrastwhether watching a film, sporting event, or gaming. These projectors create lifelike images and a sense of realism that takes you into the center of the scene. 

Combined with the latest handcrafted movie screens, the images come to life in the truest colors and center-to-edge uniformity. Steward Filmscreen, custom-designed film screens that consider the room seating, ambient lighting, throw distances, and more, are the same screens that major movie production companies use. They are now available for home entertainment.

The Sound that Engulfs You

While the image is critical in a home theater, in many ways, it's the immersive sound field that draws you into the pictures on the screen. As the demand for high-performance home theaters increased, high-fidelity audio brands entered the market, creating the type of sound that audiophiles would approve of. 

Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers deliver three-dimensional sound. The storm surrounds you, the cars race across the screen, the plains fly overhead, and a center channel speaker offers crystal-clear dialogue. These in-ceiling and in-wall speakers and subwoofers provide an almost invisible audio source that retains a home theater’s design.  

The Makings of a Home Theater

In addition to the image and sound, one of the essential elements of a home theater is customization. Every one of our clients views their ideal entertainment area differently. Some want tiered movie seating and reclining chairs with LED-lit cup holders. Others envision the plush, overstuffed loveseats and sectionals that call for laid-back relaxation. Your home theater will offer the perfect setting for you, your family, and your friends. 

Effortless Control

When combined with your Control4 home automation system, you can control your home theater with one touch. Tap the “Movie Night” icon on a touchscreen, and the lights dim while the projector and screen lower from their hidden compartments in the ceiling. 

At Encore Audio Video, we provide elegant and simple control of today’s integrated technology and high-performance audio and video. To learn about the latest home theater design or to schedule a complimentary consultation, contact Encore Audio Video today.
