Thank you to everyone who came to see us at Decorex International 2016. For those who were not there, we showcased a number of products:
Short Throw Projector and fixed screen
The Projector was 12 inches out and 12 inches below the bottom of a fixed projecor screen, as you can see below. This allows a projector to be used in rooms which may not be suited to a traditional solution.
Rako Controls and Orluna Lights
The new OLED TVs have just arrived and they are fabulous! Just 7mm thick, these 65" screens not only have the best picture available but with 120W of amplification, they sound great too.
Accoustic Wall Panels
We showed a range of accoustic wall panels, which are used to enhance the sound in a home cinema by reducing reflections and eliminating audio flat spots.
The also demonstrated the latest custom built home cinema seating solutions. With options such as single or double seat, colours, materials, motoriozation, lighting and storage, there is a wealth of features to choose from.
