Engineering an outcome is the primary job of a cinema designer. All engineering is math based, which means once we have demonstrated what is possible to a client and the client instructs us as to the outcome they desire, delivering that outcome is a mathematical/engineering problem. Very few people in our industry appreciate the complexity of this, but also how predictable the end result can be. This is what Wavetrain means by engineering the outcome.
Calibration is part of the design. The best pair of speakers or projector will only get you so far. It’s important to understand that there are degrees of calibration and without proper calibration the system will be limited. A lot of companies simply do not calibrate the video at all and others don’t calibrate to the extent they should. When a company calibrates something, they need to know everything about the design. Decisions made in the design of the project affect the calibration. If this is not understood, then they are working against the design of the room and often end up with compromised results.
Faultless engineering can’t be bought from a catalogue, it comes from years of learning the theory and putting it into practice. Our managing director and founder, David Moseley has devoted the last 20 years of his life to perfecting home cinemas and the proof is in the pudding.
Imagine walking into your new home theatre. The design is sleek, the chairs are comfortable and you settle in. Then you get complaints the sound is leaking out; your air conditioner is rattling and a slight draft is hitting your face. After spending hundreds of thousands of dollars, is this what you are happy to settle for?
D-BOX is the pioneer and world leader of motion simulation systems for entertainment, they design and manufacture motion systems that can be integrated into your home theatre seating. D-BOX also artistically script motion effects, recreating the natural movement of anyone or anything in motion within a film, enabling at-home movie viewers to actually feel as if they’re part of the action.
Seating and chairs are an integral aspect of a cinema and true comfort comes from experience and customisation. At a time when we couldn’t find a chair that was a high enough standard for our cinemas, our managing director spent 6 years designing and manufacturing his own chairs so he could understand what it takes to create perfection. And our clients love them.
Our offices and main showroom are situated in Sydney but that does not limit us to only working in Sydney or Australia for that matter. We have multiple showrooms and completed projects across Australia, New Zealand and Asia and we are open to travelling to other parts of the world in order to work on new and exciting projects. When you consider the full cost of a project, the cost of travel is comparatively small.
Your home is your personal space. A place that resonates who you are and what you enjoy. We love working with our clients to create their vision. When we work with you, we need to understand your home, what style of home-theatre you’re after, and your personality. Interpreting your brief and bringing it to life is our passion, that’s why we excel at it. We go further to understand what you want and ask the questions you haven’t thought of yet. We will often request to visit your home to really understand you and your space, before creating a bespoke solution.
Sight is only one sense and when the lights get turned off the other senses kick in. That’s what wins us our awards, what will blow you and your friends away, and what the pictures can’t do justice to. The awards we win are always for engineering excellence. The awards are never for what the room looks like.
The ultimate home-theatre doesn’t come out of a box. For a truly immersive experience, you need to incorporate design, technology and engineering. When other parties get involved that don’t understand the requirements of the room, the cinema is compromised. That’s why we take your vision and design your cinema from scratch. We meticulously select, or in some cases manufacture the individual components, to ensure everything works together in harmony.
