Design & Integration

What is a home cinema or media room?

This is your preferred space at home to enjoy all the various types of audio-visual media in the best way. Commercial cinema blockbusters are released on home media platforms much earlier than before and many of us prefer to watch movies, TV and enjoy music in the privacy of our own home cinema with our family and friends.

For those who really want to enjoy true magic.

Bespoke Home Cinema Installations in Birmingham can be accommodated in pretty much any living space you want. For those who really want to enjoy the true magic of the big screen, there’s only one option – using a projection system and a large screen in a room where the light can be properly controlled.

What equipment do I need for a home cinema installation?

In any home cinema system, we need an audio processor (to decode digital information from discs or media that’s being streamed) and power amplification (sending the appropriate signals to the loudspeakers).

The most convenient and cost-effective solution is to have an Audio-Visual Receiver (AVR) where all of this is contained in one box. However, if you can afford to, there are major advantages by separating these technologies for much better performance.

Loudspeakers have simply one function – to accurately reproduce recorded sound material. A basic Dolby Digital 5.1 system will comprise of 3 front speakers (left and right channels and a centre channel usually for speech), a pair of surround channels and a subwoofer to produce low frequency bass (the boom and drama speaker!). Dolby Atmos and DTS-X enabled system include extra ‘height channels’ to create a more immersive ‘object-based experience’.

Can I upgrade my existing home cinema system?

Absolutely – we would use any existing cabling or infrastructure if it’s suitable and simply upgrade particular components.

The choice of speaker design and technology depends on the application and size of the room. You don’t need big floor-standing speakers to play loudly and accurately. The home cinema systems we use can be installed discretely to match your interior design. The room also affects the way that sound is perceived from the listening position – digital room correction technology has a crucial role in reducing the negative effects of the room so as to ensure that your speakers always sound incredible, wherever they’re placed.

How do I operate the home cinema?

There are a variety of options available and we will share our recommendations based on your lifestyle and habits.

We would suggest particular control systems if your aim is to integrate the home cinema system with any other functions in the home or commercial space, such as security, lighting and heating.

 

Which brands of equipment do you suggest for a home cinema?

We only use reliable and trusted brands for all components, including electronics and cabling, to minimise any complications down the line.

We carefully select home cinema systems to suit your budget and lifestyle based on our own personal experience and expertise. This is also the main purpose in offering demonstrations. Please check our services and products section for more details.

The Zebra team are polite, courteous, on time, and do exactly what they say they are going to do. They explain everything. I would have made some costly mistakes without them so they paid for themselves several times over. Can’t recommend these guys enough.

 

Jonathan Smedley

★★★★★

From the initial brief to the final installation of our fantastic home cinema, Atif and the team at Zebra have been absolutely amazing to work with. The advice given on which components to buy, down to the final fitment and the way the system works is nothing short of a miracle. We are very very pleased with the final system.

Audio setup was superb and clearly know their thing when it comes to home cinema, set up and installation. Highly Recommended!
