Ingenuity of Custom Installer
Project: Ingenuity of custom installer produces entertainment marvel in Florida outdoor theater
Picture this: you’re hosting friends in your spacious ocean-front backyard, with your guests enjoying the view, swimming in the pool and leisurely soaking in the hot tub. A massive patio provides plenty of room for entertaining, catering and wine tastings, but you need a solution for the nights when football games or outdoor movies are on the agenda. What do you do when you want an entertainment solution worthy of such a luxurious environment? Think big!
Seacoast Sound installed an 80” piece of weather-resistant Stewart Starglas rigid screen material, illuminated by a powerful HIGHlite 1080p 660 3-chip DLP projector. To ensure the projector is both protected from the elements and able to expel its heat properly, a custom 8’ x 8’ enclosure was installed off the back of the central open bay. The enclosure supports the piece of Starglas, the 8,000 lumen HIGHlite projector and a mirror used to increase the throw distance from projector to screen.
As further testament to Seacoast’s appreciation of the projector line, an in-house home theater with a 100” dropdown screen is illuminated by another Digital Projection International projector, this time a single-chip DLP M-Vision 400.

“It only took us five minutes to get the image aligned. The projector was amazing. Ready to go, right out of the box, with almost no adjustments needed.” – Gene Howarth, owner of Seacoast Sound.
