Automated Audio/Visual

Music plays such a huge part in our lives, it reflects our mood and sets the tone and atmosphere in our homes. Not only can music help us relax and unwind but it can inspire and motivate us. At MW Smart Homes we can create a true multiroom audio system which allows you to stream music throughout your entire home.

Our integrated home audio systems can be setup as single or multiple zones and the use of scenes means you can simply control where your music is played. Play your lazy Sunday morning playlist in the master bedroom or stream your party playlist throughout the whole of your downstairs during a party.

With multi room audio you can control what music plays in what rooms all from a central and intuitive control interface. It’s not just audio that can be controlled, our integrated audio-visual systems also look after all your visual devices from smart screens to TVs and projectors.

Our automated systems make it easy to get the most out of your technology and enjoy a truly connected experience. Live stream sport to your home cinema and be immersed in true surround sound or catch up on your favourite soap while relaxing in the bath with the lights dimmed. No matter how you like to watch content, our smart home systems will help you enjoy a fully immersive experience.

For those that have been torn between watching two events that start at the same time there is now finally a solution! Video Tiling allows the viewer to watch at least two different events on a single screen. You no longer have to pick which sporting event gets your attention and can enjoy watching as all the live action unfolds.

At MW Homes we specialise in creating integrated audio and video systems that allow you to enjoy all your favourite media anywhere you like in your home. To find out more get in touch with us today on 0330 088 1104.

Surround sound is a technique for enriching the fidelity and depth of sound reproduction by using multiple audio channels from speakers that surround the listener.

First used in cinemas, surround sound is now a realistic and achievable experience for home owners.

There are 8 audio channels in a 7.1 surround sound system.

You have front Left, Centre and Right Channels, side Left and Right channels, Rear Left and Right channels, and a Subwoofer Channel.

When considering a home theatre it is important that it is designed correctly. The speaker placement is vital in contributing to the overall experience of a home theatre, it can really make a difference between a good sounding system and an outstanding sound experience in your home theatre.

Yes, HDMI was designed to carry 8 channels of audio which means it is capable of 7.1 surround sound.

The introduction or ARC (Audio Return Channel) has changed the way audio is sent and received by TVs and made it possible to distribute audio channels via HDMI replacing the need for the previous phono stereo cables.

There are arguments for both cases, but ultimately it comes down to what the user desires and and space constraints.

Some users may not have the space for free standing or mounted front left, centre and right speakers, therefore a sound bar may be the better option for them.
