This Atmos room uses the incredibly sweet and transparent sounding Quested system, which we proof-of-concepted  in our system Albiorix (now behind the Iron Curtain 2.0) as the best possible atmos solution by a factor of 10. This moon takes our massive R&D during the last 7 years involving over 5 million dollars of customer and internal resources in perfecting theDCI  home cinema and attempts to bring it at a fraction of the cost...

[...Moons for the people: Turn key cinemas: Saturn moon named, Laser based IMAX KILLERS: Jupiter moon named, significant use of moon derivative technologies in retrofit (ie partial system implementation like atmos/quested only) : gets Neptune Moon name!]

Aegir's client a high tech executive at the most respected aerospace co: he builds Q rank tech, say no more. We are friends since cedia 2005 and he had been following our efforts, scrutinizing our cedia demos etc.I think he will agree that it has become self evident we are intuitively in-synch in the  latest concept thinking and thus is not making the mistakes 90% of you guys in this forum have made in your collective theater's visuals architecture. Don;t get me wrong Helene and Phoebe had cinemascope screens and in my lab the screen was up high but this solution is so organic when you see it and works so well that that is why I am making the point.

This system is designed for envelopment and maximum MTF resolvability in HFR-4K-3D either DCI or hdmi. It has a supersqueezed Barco B-32 powered 3-phase from a single phase source , there are 4 light doubling systems on the market, only one works in this short throw,and don't tell me you are not into 3D anymore (stop reading my threads then) because when you see the Hobbit HFR 3D done right or 4k 3D you will wish you had read my threads :D, the screen is as big as possible as close to wall to wall and floor to ceiling (point made above )


More to come....;)

Mytholgy and the saturn moon name selection. In the past I had selected the name of the moon to harmonize with the iconic number of the sports figure client etc. Telesto for NFL Jersey 13, Hyperion for CART car 17, Kiiviuk for NBA Jersey 23. There is a blurb bellow explaining who Aegir was, quite frankly none of it fits with the project (unless I am to be sacrificed at some point :p:p), I picked the name because it has aerospace written all over it. It could be a future launch vehicle not unlike the fruit of my client's toils.

Aegir is the god of the sea in Norse mythology. He was both worshipped and feared by sailors, for they believed that Aegir would occasionally appear on the surface to take ships, men and cargo alike, with him to his hall at the bottom of the ocean. Sacrifices were made to appease him, particularly prisoners before setting sail.

Here we have the latest Speaker and Amplifier setup that shall deliver Atmos from the CP-850 at it's maximum possible clarity and impact.

Holly Crap the ARS system proposal came in very very high. We might need to look at an alternative, this is more than the projector fully tweaked. That's a red flag.

So we got a comparative analysis from a company that does no interior design millwork but that perhaps may yield better performance on a plain track look room.

They did a lot of work they normally charge for plenty due to the atmos exposure... the documents are in reverse order...

I had to explain the atmos surrounds and ceilings (16 speakers) are flush mounted. I convinced the owner to use independent framing around the speakers with a neutral color offering subdued 2 tone markings that there are really that many speakers in the room.

It really is evident in moments like this in the cinema design that without a competent BIM architect you cannot undertake such endeavor.

The client selected the seating layout with a front sofa but we are pending the autocads for the rear incliners so we have collisions with what the pdf of said chairs says (we have the old style chairs from Cineak and not Cinematech on the back row but show the family sofa correctly), we accommodated the rack and laid out the doorways. Which reminds me to discuss acoustical doors with client. However In latest conversation with custom 4 way mask screen builder due to seismic req. he said he needs a door to insert the screen into the cinema, so now I have to go back to him and see if he needs a full height or just the length, because if so our rack closet doors would suffice. 2 sconces have been drawn (client owns 8) of which the left one immediately appear to collide with the swinging action mega-screen.It will be interesting to sort out the rest of the sconces as we have to solidify the surround speakers as we may use less speakers (24-28 channels instead of 30) due to Roger Quested's new secret Weaponized Atmos Surround on steroids design :cool:  and so it goes but here are some sexy Atmos layout 3D's. 15 years from now remember where you first saw them!;)

I LEAKED Quested's next plateau for 140+ decibel all around Atmos, here is a draft without the amps. The Game is afoot.

You are literally seeing the first droplets of the impending Home Atmos Douwnpour, before you get your feet wet remember where it came from. And how generous we have been showing you the right path....

We Got screens, since the large format fixed lens did not fall in our actual throw distance range we have decided to forego tru 8k resolution fixed lens for custom museum grade ground optics no bonded elements Superkontrast zoom lens from obscure but SOTA optics company that just gulped AMF optics.

This has paved the way for the exploration of maximum screen size. With the thought that 4 way frames are thicker than 2 ways we are starting we 2 wy designs, between you and I I want 4 way if it don't cost 4 inches in diagonal, I shiver with anticipation.

Good news that the rack closet doors now permit getting the screen into the room. Great design just flows sometimes, after months of pounding the pavement with your forehead. that is.

But I digress, voila:

The Flat dimension is 14 1/2 feet wide [ Nothing to write home about id rather go 2.0 and crop all the times but why go hillbilly? 4 way it must]

These are our new seismic rated wall to ceiling mega-screens on a Hinge.

Now the cinemascope screen is certainly respectable 18.8 it actually gives me enough slack to predict this is going to be a native 2.0 4 way, watch.... Im glad because that is what's in the3 budget.

Of course to save 50 grand on acoustics we are increasing side walls to 2 inches from 1. My Bim man is going to kill me tonight.
