NOTRE DAME THEATER (by Integrated Electronic Solutions)

“The owner of this Notre Dame-style theater may live hundreds of miles from his alma mater, but when the 130-inch Stewart Filmscreen screen lowers from its hiding spot in the ceiling and the Runco D-73 3D LED projector fires up, it’s as if he’s seated on the 50-yard line of his beloved “brick house” all over again.”

NOTRE DAME THEATER (by Integrated Electronic Solutions)

Integrated Electronic Solutions Presents: Notre Dame Theater, Electronic House HOTY 2012 Award Winner for Best Themed Home Theater, Gold

“The owner of this Notre Dame-style theater may live hundreds of miles from his alma mater, but when the 130-inch Stewart Filmscreen screen lowers from its hiding spot in the ceiling and the Runco D-73 3D LED projector fires up, it’s as if he’s seated on the 50-yard line of his beloved “brick house” all over again.”

“Having a very large screen for watching football and movies was one of his primary requests,” says Dean Valencic of Integrated Electronic Solutions, Yonkers, N.Y.. “So was having multiple screens to watch several games at the same time.”

“The solution was to position five flat-panel TVs on the same wall as the huge roll-down screen. A motorized lifting mechanism from Stewart Filmscreen—controlled by a Crestron touchpanel—moves the 130-incher into a ceiling soffit on the owner’s command to reveal a group of Samsung and NuVision LED TVs. Integrated Electronic Solutions chose LED over other TV technologies because of its energy efficiency and ability to produce bright images. “The brighter the better when watching sports,” Valencic says.”

“Audio from any of the available video sources broadcasts through the room’s seven JBL Synthesis Project Array speakers and two subwoofers, all of which IES tucked neatly inside specially constructed brick cavities with acoustically transparent images from famous ND players and coaches on the left and right and score board image under the screens. Although the Project Array speakers are visually stunning, the owner chose to cover them with “smart art” from Acoustic Smart. These acoustically transparent fabric wall panels can be designed in any size or shape, and images of a homeowner’s choosing can be transferred onto the fabric. Naturally, the owner of this theater chose professionally shot, high-resolution images of the crowd at a Notre Dame game to display on the 6 custom-designed panels. “It really adds to the sense of being at the stadium, plus enhances the audio performance of the room,” says Valencic.”
