An folgende Seminare haben wir teilgenommen:

7 Steps to Home Theater

Instructor: Russ Herschelmann, Herschelmann Designs International

If you’re really serious about home theater, this is the place to start. Whether you have 25 years of experience or are just getting started, this course forms the foundation of home theater design/installation curriculum. Starting from scratch, you’ll learn the seven critical elements to designing a top-flight home theatre for any budget. Explore the principles of the post-production dubbing stage (where movies are created), and how to best engineer this environment into a home. Learn acoustical principles. Calculate standing waves, and locate them in the design phase, ensuring optimal placement of seats and speakers. Discover how something as simple as a chair back or a subwoofer placed in a corner can completely compromise a well-built home theater. Do you know how to optimize riser heights and screen size? Are you sure? This course shows you how.

Digital Media Servers

Instructor: Michael Candea, Audio Advisors

This course will present an overview of hard drive based recording, layback, downloading, uploading, transferring, distribution, control and management of audio and video content. This seminar will also review internet connected audio and video streaming storage and distribution alternatives.

Home Theater Architect: Design & Build a High-End Home Theater

Instructor: Russ Herschelmann, Herschelmann Designs International

Home Theater Architect: Design/build a High-End Home Theater all new for 2003! How do you design and build a dedicated $100-$500K+ home theater? Explore the critical elements of a high-performance space optimized for both movie and music playback, including HVAC, lighting, sightlines/risers, hiding acoustical treatments, and how to engineer the space for maximum video and audio dynamic range. Use 3- D CAD software (note: NOT Auto CAD) to optimize appearance without compromising performance. Is your client interested in a spectacular dedicated theater?

Projection Screen Technologies

Instructor: Don Stewart, Stewart Filmscreen Corporation

In order to achieve absolute image fidelity in any home theater application, an understanding of projection screen technologies and the integration of such into the overall system and design is crucial. In this course, the instructor will review topics such as: front and rear screen applications, screen types and surface design, screen gain, screen size in relation to seating distance, aspect ratios, and image perception. This course will also cover recent advancements in screen products and the future of screen technologies. Overall, this course will teach you how to choose the right screen for every application and design.

Room Acoustics: Acoustics 101

Instructor: John Dahl, THX, Ltd.

Understanding the behavior of sound in a small room is critically important for all home audio system designer/installers promising clients the greatest possible return on their audio system investment. Poor room acoustics will mask the quality of even the finest audio equipment. In a clear and easily understood way, this class will introduce all of the concepts needed to understand the acoustic problems of small rooms and will outline some of the basic solutions. This class is a perfect introduction to acoustics for anyone attending the more advanced classes offered at EXPO or embarking on further private study. It is also useful for anyone engaging the services of a professional acoustician who would like a better understanding of the solutions they are proposing for your client’s system.

Room Acoustics: Isolation & Noise Control

Instructor: Steve Haas, SH! Acoustics

The best way to optimize dynamic range is through noise control. When you make a room 15 decibels quieter, you hear much more  detail and harmonic richness. There is a greater sense of depth and a more stable image. Learn how to optimize HVAC systems, and construct walls, floors and ceilings for optimal sound and control of noise. Learn (and hear) the differences between various wall structures, and discover why the biggest and thickest wall may not always be the best at isolating noise.

Room Acoustics: The Room & Loudspeaker System

Instructor: Floyd Toole, Harman International

The room is the final component in any audio system, and it, combined with the arrangement of listeners and loudspeakers within it, are major determinants of the quality of the listening experience. We start with the rules of placement for multichannel systems, focusing on the options for surround speakers. An examination of what makes a good sounding loudspeaker leads to some clear guidance about where, and where not to, place loudspeakers if we want to get the most out of them. In-wall and in-ceiling installations are discussed. Room resonances are explained, including discussions of how they interact with loudspeaker and listener placement in the room. From this we learn how to arrange a room to obtain the best possible bass at a single location, or over a listening area. Since equalization is the icing on the cake when done properly, the presentation will end with the rules for finessing the performance of an audio system by using good measurements and the right kind of equalizers.

Room Acoustics: Acoustical Treatments

Instructor: Anthony Grimani, Performance Media Industries

Discover the uses of absorbers, diffusers and other reflection control devices. Learn how to tweak a room and maximize the sweet spot through proper use of acoustical treatments.

Display Device Calibration

Instructor: Joe Kane, Joe Kane Productions

The most important part of display device calibration is an understanding of why it’s necessary. Properly setting up a home viewing system provides a known canvas to those creating the art. We’ll look at what defines this canvas, including the roll played by the environment of the display. We’ll define the canvas in technical terms, meaning what it should be doing to properly interpret the incoming signal to the best of its ability. This year’s course is new in that it includes information about solid state imagers. They often behave differently than analog display devices. The types of circuits driving the display will influence how they are calibrated. Knowing what you are looking for in the final picture will help pull you through complications thrown at you by these new technologies.

High Performance Home Theater Calibrations

Instructor: Anthony Grimani, Performance Media Industries

Home theater components are very complex and require careful set-up and tuning in order to realize their ultimate potential. This  technical presentation will cover all aspects of equipment verification, configuration, and calibration of both audio and video components. The main topics covered include: recommendations on component connections; system verification and troubleshooting; component function configuration; calibration of audio and video systems; and final check.

Multi-Room/Multi-Zone/Multi-Source A/V

Instructor: Bill Organ, Avalon Associates

Avoid a career of replacing blown speakers, servicing overheated amplifiers, and calming unhappy customers. Learn to calculate performance requirements before you install the system. Real world techniques for determining worst case power needs and sound levels in each room of the house will be presented. You will learn multi-room speaker placement principles for critical listening, background, maximum bass and outdoors. Discover how to specify the correct distribution system based on the performance requirements, the speaker placement, and overall size of the job. Resistive, reactive (autoformer based), multi-amplifier, series and parallel distribution schemes will be examined for their pros and cons. Attend this seminar to learn how to install multi-room audio systems that do not need service calls and generate satisfied customers!
