Digital Signage

A digital sign is typically just a standard video display screen that shows your specific marketing message. The digital display could be anything from a large Video Wall & Projection screen through to individual flat screens (Plasma, LCD & LED) or even tablet type displays such as an iPad etc. Several display screens can be used together to create one digital display network. This network of screens could be all in the same location, such as a shopping centre, reception area or individual retail store, or be spread over a much wider area like a nationwide chain of restaurants or even a global chain of restaurants, such as the digital menu boards that are being used in some big fast food chains nowadays.

‘Content’ refers to the actual pictures and videos that are shown on the display screens & the equipment that manages what message is show over the entire network of screens is called a ‘Content Management System’, also known as a ‘CMS’.

The content itself and the type of Content Management System that is used is the most important part of any digital signage network.

So, Digital display screens + Content Management System + Content + Installation + Maintenance = A complete Digital Signage System.

Every step along way requires careful consideration to maximise your investment & ultimately the success of your Digital Signage system to ensure that your customers are viewing the right information at the right time. We have experience in building complete Digital Signage systems and can provide everything that is required at each stage of the process, including content, so please contact us to see how we can help you.

iPads are well recognised and offer end users intuitive navigation & ease of control. We can combine iPads, or any other types of ‘tablet’, with a custom made enclosure suitable for use in a retail environment and most importantly provide the necessary content management system & interactive marketing information tailored specifically to your business.

Tablet enclosures can be manufactured to suit your branding & specific retail environment and include various features such as height adjustment, tilt, rotation & anti-theft measures as well as internal power & network distribution.

We have the experience to be able to deliver complete tablet based digital signage systems for our clients.

Home Cinema Rooms

Large display screens

Every home cinema rooms needs a large display screen to bring the action to life. Flat screens (Plasma, LCD and LED) only go so far and are quite expensive at their maximum size so if you want great image quality on a really large screen then projection is the logical way to go. There are various types of projectors and projection screens to choose from depending on the size of your room and layout; recessed electric screens & projectors will sit flush with the ceiling and disappear out of sight or alternatively there are large fixed position screens available with choice of designer frames & finishes.

Imagine relaxing in your favourite chair and with a single touch of a button the projector turns on, the screen lowers into position, the blinds close, the lights dim and your favourite movie automatically starts playing!

Perfect Surround Sound

With a dedicated Home cinema room & surround sound system you can truly immerse yourself in your favourite movie & really bring the action to life. With 5.1 or 7.1 surround you can hear the faintest murmur or feel the bass rumble through your whole body with complete clarity. Whatever movies you like to watch we can supply a Home Cinema experience that will bring your films to life and make you forget you are actually at home!

The Best Seat in the House

To really enjoy a movie you need to be comfortable. We supply quality cinema seating direct from the manufacturer and can offer a complete range of styles, colours and sizes to match your home cinema room. Some of the special design features include steel frames for maximum comfort and durability, adjustable headrests, telescopic footrests, infinite reclining positions, motorised recliners, choice of luxurious leather or fabric finishes, cup holders and more with literally hundreds of configuration possibilities so you can arrange your seating exactly the way you like it.

Simple to Control

Audio Equipment

Surround Speakers:

Common surround sound systems for domestic home cinemas are either '5.1' or '7.1' systems. For a '5.1' system, this simply means that there are 5 'satellite' speakers positioned around the room as well as a single Bass speaker (the bass speaker = the '.1').

So for a 5.1 system there will be a Front Left speaker, a Front Right speaker, a Centre speaker, a Rear Left speaker, a Rear Right speaker and the Bass speaker. A '7.1' surround system just includes two extra speakers (Left middle and Right middle) as well as the bass speaker. Surround sound speaker configurations really immerse you in the action and as most movies are now shown with either 5.1 or 7.1 surround so you can really experience the sound as the director intended.

Ceiling mounted speakers:

These speakers are mounted into the actual ceiling void itself so the speaker grille then sits flush to the ceiling. These types of speakers can be very discreet and are popular in both commercial and residential AV systems. They are usually either circular or square in shape and offer great sound quality without getting in the way.

Wall mounted Speakers:

These are speakers that are attached to a bracket that allows them to be bolted to a wall. They are not as discreet as ceiling speakers but they do allow you to use larger speakers and keep them off the floor.

Floor Standing speakers:

These are simply speakers that are designed to sit on the floor. As these type of speakers can sit directly on the floor they can be very large and it is floor standing speakers that are often used to create the really powerful audio in nightclubs and music concerts.

Weatherproof Speakers:

We can supply a wide selection of weatherproof speakers that can withstand the wind, rain and sun and stay outside all year round. Perfect for any outdoor public space or even just in your back garden!
