Kihei, HI -- Paradise Theater has scheduled two Home Theater Design Essentials Workshops to be held in conjunction with sales rep firm Hill Residential Systems. The first event, serving the greater Philadelphia region, will be held at the Lutron Experience Center in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, September 15. The second event, serving the greater Baltimore region, will be held at the Hill Residential facilities in Columbia, Maryland, on Wednesday, September 16.
The Home Theater Design Essentials Workshops are an industry outreach initiative provided by Paradise Theater, Fortress Seating, Kinetics Noise Control, and BASWA Acoustics. The four companies have joined forces to provide a best-of-breed outreach initiative for architects and designers. These are the group's latest activities in their industry outreach efforts to help build closer working relationships between architects, interior designers, builders, and electronic system integrators. Both upcoming events are focused on educating industry partners on available technologies for new and existing homes.
"We find ourselves in a unique situation at Paradise Theater. We coordinate our design work with architects, interior designers, builders, and electronic system integrators," president of Paradise Theater, Sam Cavitt, said. "Our goal is to provide insight to our partners in the design process so we can all understand what is possible. If our clientele is unclear on what is possible or why it is desirable we may never have the opportunity to do our best work. These workshops will help all the members of the design team understand this and how to achieve these results".
The workshop events include the presentation of the course, "Home Theater Design Essentials for the Trade," which provides a new perspective for trade partners on Private Theaters and essential elements, process, and best practices for team collaboration during their planning and construction. The "Essentials" course is designed and delivered by former CEDIA Instructor of the Year, Sam Cavitt.
A Lutron representative will deliver a second course, called "Introduction to Residential Lighting Control.” Both courses have been approved for CEUs, for AIA and ASID. Hill Residential Systems, Lutron, Digital Projection, and AMX are sponsoring at the local level.
