Best Media Room Award Given to DSI Entertainment Systems

Electronic House Magazine’s Annual “Best Of” Awards Honors DSI Entertainment Systems for Outstanding Design and Execution of a High-End Media Room.

Online PR News – 26-May-2010 – – Los Angeles, May 20, 2010 — DSI Entertainment Systems, an Electronic Systems Contractor specializing in audio video installation, custom home theater systems, media rooms, and home automation has been awarded Gold for ‘Best Family / Media Room’ for 2010 by Electronic House magazine in their annual ‘Home of the Year Awards’ issue for one of their Santa Barbara custom installations.  DSI was recognized for this award for designing a high-performance Media Room surround sound system that blends seamlessly with the detailed mahogany paneled interior architecture.
Some highlights of the clever custom installation include: ease of operation utilizing a home automation-connected Crestron wireless touchscreen, high-performance speakers and subwoofer hidden behind custom metal grilles, hiding almost all of the room’s audio/video technology in a remotely-located equipment room, seamless integration of 12 different audio/video sources, and particular attention paid to the room’s beautiful architectural and interior design. Much coordination with the architect, interior designer, and cabinet maker was necessary to accomplish such a beautifully integrated design. The Crestron “smart home” automation system controls five DirecTV DVR’s, an AppleTV, a Vantage lighting system, HVAC, whole house audio, security, CCTV, fountains, and the pool & spa; all of which are accessible from the Media Room’s remote control. High-end touches include a Runco reference quality plasma TV and a Kaleidescape movie and music media server which allows the family convenient access to their media library.

Says Patrick Martinez, System Designer at DSI Entertainment Systems, “We are thrilled to win the award for Best Media Room. As a company, we preach the message that modern audio video technologies such as media rooms, home theaters, and home automation systems have the ability to blend into and enhance a home’s decor. This Media Room installation proves this point very well, and the credit must be shared also with the architect (Don Nulty, AIA) and interior designer (Darrell Schmitt Design Associates) for working as a team with DSI to integrate the Media Room into the interior architecture.”
