Audio Command Penthouse
Project: Private Home Theater - Audio Command
Audio Command, a custom systems integrator with over 35 years of experience across the U.S., completed a casual penthouse media room that features a dazzling video experience. Combining an exceptionally bright Digital Projection TITAN Reference 1080p 3D 3-chip projector with a 144” Stewart Filmscreen StudioTec 130 screen, the client’s dreams of a casual yet high-performance viewing environment were realized.
Typically working outside the U.S., the client wanted as oasis for the times when he returns to New York City. Only the best would do, as this NYC penthouse is used almost exclusively as a place to unwind and recuperate from a busy work and travel schedule.
As space is a premium in city dwellings, the powerful TITAN Reference 1080p 3D projector was chosen to deliver all content in an open media space regularly contending with ambient light.
An avid sports enthusiast, the client enlists a Crestron DVPHD video processor to, at times, watch four sporting events at once on the large screen. When not watching sporting events, a Kaleidescape server is used for movies and recorded entertainment.
The two-story media room within the penthouse was designed with flexibility in mind. Conceptually, the client wanted a casual media area that could entertain a crowd during live sporting events. Although designed with socializing in mind, the 40’ x 20’ media space is quite advanced. Russ Berger of Russ Berger Design Group ensured the room was acoustically impeccable, while the projector is almost invisible, having been concealed within a soffit in a custom-created air conditioned cavity. Automated Lutron shades supply privacy when desired, and Genelec speakers deliver the aural experience.

Feedback from the Client
The TITAN was chosen in this media space “because of the image quality and brightness. We’ve had great success with the Digital Projection line, and knew the client would be happy.” – John Clancy, executive vice president at Audio Command Systems, Inc.
