If your audio system does not extend outdoors, then you are missing out. Outdoor audio gives you a reason to utilize your oudoor space more often. It beats having to carry an iPod doc and speaker outside. Plus, it adds an additional level of entertainment to a cookout or pool party.

Outdoor audio is weatherproof, though we like to install amps indoors. Speakers, such as the Bose fs50 pictured above, can stay outside yearound. There are even TVs that can remain outdoors all year without incurring damage. This is where hiring a knowledgeable installer is imperative. He or she will put you will guide you to the best products for their durability, quality and price.

Taste the 4k TV Experience

on Thursday, 13 September 2012.

 

4k TV is the future of television. We're here to explain what it is and why it will replace your HD TV one day.

First, what does 4k mean?  PC Mag says that 4k, "Refers to approximately 4,000 pixels of horizontal and 2,000 pixels of vertical resolution used in several digital formats for shooting high-quality video and scanning 35 mm frames. The 4K refers to horizontal resolution in contrast to standard digital TV resolutions, which are stated in vertical lines. "

So, how does that technology compare to the norm? Christina Bonnington of Wired.com writes,  "Previously the stuff of high-end projector, [now makes] inroads into televisions of late." She also cites YouTube videos to give you a taste of the 4k experience.

If the resolution wow factor isn't enough to turn your head, then note that Sony's 4k boasts  "virtual" 5.1 surround sound on a detachable 10-speaker system. Built-in wifi supports your every Pandora and Netflix whim. Oh, and 3-D is included on the 85" screen.

If you want to be first to own this technology, give Sony a call at 1.888.363.7669. Just expect the entire neighborhood to be at your house for games.

 

Expo Recap: CEDIA 2012

on Monday, 10 September 2012.

 

We just spent 3 days in Indianapolis at the 2012 CEDIA Expo. At this, one of the largest electronics expos in the country, we feasted our eyes on the most exciting technologies to date that 400,000 square feet could contain.

Now, we report back with ISS'S FAVORITE 0.001 PART OF THE EXPO (or our top 4 picks)!

Really, you should be excited too.

1. Sony's 4k television. Ever look out a window and wish your TV's picture was that clear? How about clearer? Well, just so you know an image that pristine would be the result of 3,840x2,160 pixels, and it exists! As cheesy as it sounds, when we saw the 4k TV, our jaws dropped like we had unexpectedly run into the Grand Canyon. This technology is a sight to behold. The 4k will set you back 25k, but it is almost hard to believe they can put a price on something so majestic.

2. Future Automation's TV lift. Make TV come to you. With Future Automation's TV lift, you enjoy TV from the comfort of your bed without the wires or wall space. TV rolls up from a concealed location and returns once you are finished. This lift can be placed in most foot board, and is the brand most architects trust. It is the simple, sleek solution to having a TV in the bedroom.

3. Electric Mirrors. Going back to the issue of space constraints, electric mirrors step in with a solution for concealing entertainment equipment while making the room look bigger. When the TV is off, all you see is a stylish mirror. When the TV is on, you see, well, the TV. Unless you want to see both the mirror and the TV; you can do that too. A great choice for small rooms and bathrooms, electric mirrors are cool and convenient.

4.  Sonance's Invisible Speakers. Where have these speakers been all our lives? Seriously, speakers that hide in-wall, can be painted or wallpapered, and sound great? Who doesn't want these? No more bulky media consoles. No more wasted space. Invisibile speakers are as practical as they are ingenious. Good work, Sonance.

 

Knoxville Whole House Audio

A sound system in just one room is not doing you any favors. Knoxville, whole house audio is the way to go. Having a system the entire family will enjoy is easier than ever to possess and control.

The the primary difference between new whole home audio systems and ones past is convenience. Instead of going to each unit to control your system, everything is controlled by your mobile device. You can catalog you music, adjust the volume, even dim the lights if you incorporate a lighting system. Each room can have different volume settings. So, you can play your music louder on the porch, and quieter upstairs. A whole house audio system is thus, great for parties and gatherings.

Another benefit of whole house audio is that systems are built to minimize visual impact. No more bullky equipment stealing space. Speakers can be installed into the walls, and amps can be concealed. You can enjoy your audio systems without the eyesores.
