Consulting

EDG’s extensive expertise in custom home theaters and media rooms designs can be tapped for a wide range of projects on an as needed basis for other contractors. We are fully equipped to produce detailed engineering drawings for residential home automation systems, boardroom entertainment and automation systems, and every facet of high-end audio/visual systems that we consult on. Areas of expertise include: home theater consulting, multi-room audio/video, lighting control system design, home automation systems, and advanced control systems.

Here’s a real-life example of how our consulting services recently helped a client properly plan technology systems for a new, yet-to-be-built home:

A man planning a 13,000 square foot home in the New Jersey countryside for his family saw the benefits of an EDG installed custom home theater, lighting control system, and integrated Creston control panel during a party at a neighbor’s house. The gentleman got EDG’s contact information, and contacted us about installing a home movie theater in the great room of his new home, a dedicated, high-performance theater for watching football, as well as a high quality, distributed whole house audio and video system.

The gentleman toured EDG’s 20,000 square foot headquarters, including our engineering and programming departments, conference room, demonstration theater, and the production and rack-building area where we pre-build and test systems before they’re installed. After touring our facility, he became a client, and honored EDG with a contract to work with his architect and the builder affiliate on the desired technology systems. The project ended up running 2-1/2 years at a cost of over $400,000.

EDG’s challenge was to integrate the desired systems without compromising the home’s design, where every window was positioned to view a specific part of the property. We generated AutoCAD plans which were incorporated into the architect’s advanced 3-D computer rendering programs to give the family a 360-degree, photorealistic view of their home as it was being designed.

The end result was a lower-level, dedicated theater, designed by the architect and outfitted by EDG, featuring an eight-seat tiered theater, plus a four-seat bar, 117-inch screen and a Runco DLP home theater projector, plus an integrated entertainment system and home automation controls.

The project earned EDG a gold “Best Integrated Home” technical design award at the Custom Electronics Design & Installation Association’s Electronic Lifestyles Awards, and more important, a valued client whose family loves their new custom home theater, whole house audio and video system, and home automation controls.

    • Private Theater

      The Private Theater is a room that allows for creativity to provide an escape from every day life. The space can take you back to the Bijou or off to a far off fantasy land. The private theaters goal is to allow our clients a chance to resolve to a space that provides a change. The theater is typically made up of a large multi aspect ratio projection screen, front projector with a brightness and quality determined by the size and placement of the screen, multi channel audio from a surround sound processor, amplifier and sources, DVD, Blu-ray and cable box.The theater package includes a large multi aspect ratio projection screen and a projector that is neatly located in the rear of the room. Depending on the design requirements the projector can be placed tight to the ceiling, semi recessed into the ceiling or hidden away behind a projection view port in another room. The speakers can be placed in many locations to provide the highest performance or completely hidden behind the screen to provide the best aesthetic performance.

      Acoustical wall panels are typically included in this package to reduce the amount of sound that escapes into the rest of the home as well as improving the general theatrical experience of the room.

      Theater seating is designed into the space to increase the quality of the experience and provide the maximum number of people for a space.

      Room Isolation: Different construction methods are provided to increase the STC (Sound Transfer Coefficient) of the construction. The sound from the theater should stay in the theater. That is accomplished with construction methods, additional layers of Sheetrock and minimal amount of penetrations through the environment.
