John Sciacca is one of the principals of Custom Theater and Audio in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Yesterday was the first day I had a chance to volunteer as a Watchdog since Lauryn entered the third grade, and I got a terrific opportunity to spend the day watching a host of eight and nine year old boys and girls — so-called “post millennials” — interacting with a variety of technologies, and it was kind of eye opening to watch this next generation handling tech and try ...
Genisys is a reference Atmos soundtrack in all regards, truly made for home theater demos and rarely missing any opportunity to push audio boundaries. While I highlight my favorite scenes below, the entire film is just packed with great audio moments.

One of my “beats” for Residential Systems was immersive, 3D audio. If you’ve followed my writing here for any amount of time you’ll know that I’ve covered Dolby Atmos quite a bit. I walked virtually every inch of the show floor for all three days, and I loved every minute of it.
What a difference a year makes when it comes to next generation audio formats like Dolby Atmos.
I scoured through the CEDIA EXPO Training & Certification book and pinpointed 10 classes that would be of benefit to any CI, whether industry rookie or grizzled vet. Showing how CEDIA is keeping up with the times, most of these classes are new for this EXPO.
While I can understand the geometry and increased edge-light benefits when using a curved screen with a front projection system with an anamorphic lens (the projected image having to travel further to reach the screen edges than the screen center on a flat screen just due to physics) having a curve on a direct-view LED TV just doesn’t make any sense to me.
