Baltimore Ravens Media Room Features 7 TVs, 110 Screen
By Steve Castle Seven TVs and a 110-inch home theater screen ensure this Baltimore Ravens fan will not miss a play of the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots.
Football is not just a one-screen affair in this house. The action can be on as many as eight video displays in the space alone.
Four 40-inch Sony LCDs flank a 52-incher in the lounge area, and three more 32-inch Sony TVs float over the bar. As if that's not enough, there's a 110-inch screen in the nearby home theater.
But back to the sports bar. These rooms were designed in a unique Hawaiian - Mediterranean fusion that reflects the heritage of the homeowners. Bringing these styles together to create an elegant sports bar was a unique challenge for the architect/builder W. Douglas Beims, who used African and sapele mahoganies for the woodwork and Canadian maple for the ceilings.
But an even bigger challenge was making the operation of eight different TVs simple and intuitive. When you have multiple TVs in the room, it can be very complicated, says Jay Basen, programming manager for custom electronics installer Gramophone, Timonium, Md. For real simplicity, the Crestron touchpanels feature buttons that turn on all the TVs to predefined choices, with a single press.
Its Sunday. A real question is who will win the NFC game, not by how much will the Raven's lose by. Of course if Brady get's injured, the Ravens might have a shot if NE can not stop Rrice. Did you notice the line increased from -6 1/2 to -7 for NE and decreased from -2 1/2 to -2 for SF. Minor changes in the O/U going from 50 to 49 1/2 for the AFC game and going from 42 to 41 for the NFC game. I don't bet but its interesting to see how America is betting. More favored NE at the old line forcing its increase and more were favoring NY at the old line.
