Let us show you how clean and simple your installation will be

Encore Custom AV knows Audio Visual racks. We’ve installed a fair share since opening our doors that January in 2008. We’re very familiar with the common preference: “We need it functional and we need it hidden.”

Our response? “Can do.”

Encore Custom AV discusses the finer points of lighting design

First, let’s all agree that a room that completely blacks out isn’t the final goal, even for a home movie theater. You want to know you’re eating from your own popcorn bowl, or where those risers are if you need to make a quick exit. It’s the manner in which you create that accent lighting that separates the ultimate private cinema from a DIY media room, and Encore Custom AV has the experience (in Northern Virginia, Metro DC, and throughout the mid-Atlantic) to help you pick the right lighting control and ceiling treatment for your dream build.

Encore Unlocks the Keys to “Smart” Home Automation

Hint: The secret is at your fingertips…

Home Automation has come a long way in a very short time. Remember when the height of control was a timer for your porch lights? If you didn’t remember to change the timer, your lights would come on at 5:30 pm in July. Hardly smart.

Now? Encore Custom Audio Video can design a system that gives you (responsive) control over your lights, your security, your HVAC, your media, your shades, and even the temperature of your pool or spa (if you happen to be so fortunate). And the best part about having all this control is that you don’t have to learn some new computer program or language in order to take advantage of it. Encore can connect everything through your iPhone, iPad, tablet or otherwise favorite iOS.

With an attention to the details that ensure an amazing private cinema experience

In the last blog, we focused on Dolby Atmos and our new 4,500 sq. ft., state-of-the-art showroom at our headquarters in Sterling. Part of the reason we’re so enthusiastic about both is because Dolby Atmos was designed to create a layer of sound from above and the overhead sound extends the height of a system's soundstage, which allows for some very special effects that we enjoy demonstrating in our new showroom.
