• Executive Cinema System

Modus Vivendi were recommended to the client and contract administrator to provide a whole house audio visual, control and integration system, part of which included a dedicated cinema room on the second floor of the house.  The project was being carried out in three phases, with the cinema room forming part of the second phase.

Using many Pulse Cinemas ingredients and with help from the company’s demo facilities, Modus Vivendi delivered this attractive and high-performance cinema.

Luke Emmott, MD for Modus Vivendi, explains, “An initial budget was provided by the client as part of our original costings, but once it came to decide on exactly what should go in to the room, the clients were invited to Pulse Cinemas’ demonstration facility to experience what was possible. They both very much liked the large cinema room at Pulse HQ and wanted to achieve a similar level of system that was scaled to suit their room size and shape.”

With the challenge laid down by the client, the expert team at Modus Vivendi set about delivering the client’s theatre dreams.

Luke explains, “Due to room restrictions; separate entry (front of room) and exit doors (rear of room), shape and size of room, along with the amount of seating required, a frameless projector screen was chosen to maximise the projected image. The projector was positioned behind the rear wall along with the cinema AV rack. Again, due to the size of room and projected image, seating positions were critical to ensure all eight seats could be comfortably accommodated, as well as the screen being viewable from each of the seats once populated.”

Despite these technical challenges, the team delivered a cinema that offers all the performance and comfort the client could ever want.
