The Cobalt Cinema
Photos of construction and the completed project. The main design was by Russ Berger Design Group and is a reference grade room. Some of the particulars: Screen Innovations Performance Fixed Gamma Maestro HD 133" (116" width) 1.1 White Weave, CAT Speakers, Audio Control Maestro M3, Audio Control Savoy and Avalon Amps for a 7.2 system. Automation is by Savant AV and can be accessed with any device that runs iOS like iPads, iPods and iPhones. Lighting is Lutron Homeworks and Philips ColorKinect ColorCove EC. The projector is a Sony VW50 but am upgrading to a VW50ES now as a stop gap before 4K/2i60p media delivery gets settled.
This is a small space (at $1200-$1500+/sq ft in San Francisco's Noe Valley/Mission District it's hard to rationalize a big HT), but Russ was able to give us a seven seat design with SMPTE standard perfection. He was thrilled that I wasn't afraid to get too close to the screen and with 4K/2160p on the horizon, I was certain it was the right choice.
