3D Home Theater Features 180-inch Screen

February 20, 2011 By Home Entertainment Editorial Staff

And from our sister online magazine, "Electronic House", comes this eye-opening story, written by Lisa Montgomery. The CE pros at Osbee Industries, Inc., of Harrison, NY created a theater in a renovated basement, comprised of a 180-inch wide, curved, acoustically transparent, Screen Research screen, which shifts shape to accommodate the aspect ratio of any film the residents happen to be watching. The projector of choice is the Digital Projection Titan Reference 1080p 3Di video projector, with an anamorphic lens attached to the unit to allow movies shot in a CinemaScope widescreen to be viewed in their native 2.35:1 aspect ratio.


Media is ample: a Kaleidescape media server, Blu-ray disc library (200 at present count) and streaming content from a Crestron ADMS server and AppleTV receiver. Four different sources can be viewed simultaneously in a quad view, via a Crestron DVPHD-PRO-R video processor.

Built to house a crowd of as many as 20 people, the family invested in 15 active-shutter 3D glasses and plenty of seating. To prevent the sound from the 4,000 watt JBL Synthesis audio system from rattling the floor of the rooms above it, the newly constructed walls and ceiling were isolated from the original structure and packed the ceiling and wall cavities with sound-absorbing materials.
