Audio Advice, a North Carolina-based specialty AV, custom installation and e-commerce dealer has announced its new, free online home theater design tool called Home Theater Designer.
According to Audio Advice, it developed the interactive 3D design tool using advanced algorithms to help users create system designs, and to answer questions via a 3D rendering of their room that works in real-time.
“This Home Theater Designer tool is one of the biggest breakthroughs to happen for home theater enthusiasts, streaming TV binge watchers, entertainment and gaming fans, and just ordinary families who can’t quite figure out how to get that home movie theater sound quality,” boasts Tommy Jacobs, vice president of sales, Klipsch.
“Audio Advice is known for its audio and home theater expertise and they jam packed expterise into this extraordinary tool.”
Home Theater Design Tool Provides Placement Guidance
Integrators, consumers and others can use the online design tool as a guide to help with the design of their home spaces to maximize the home theater experience.
The tool allows users to set their room dimensions and then answer questions about the amount of seats in the room, the placement of the seats; whether a system has a television or projection system, and loudspeaker configurations.
Audio Advice points out the system will take the information that users input and in real time will calculate system recommendations.
The launch of the theater design tool coincides with the introduction of other tools, including buying guides, theater galleries and other educational tools from Audio Advice.
“People need resources when it comes to designing their entertainment setups. The popularity of DIY home design software gives everyday people the power to take on projects on their own. The magic of this tool is that if you feel good with your report, you can take on your install; if you need additional help, our service team can guide you through deeper solutions; or if you want to hand it off for full installation, we can do that too,” adds Scott Newman, CEO, Audio Advice.
“It’s a great way to connect with consumers, but it is also a tool other firms and manufacturers can use with their customers, or interior designers can use with homeowners. We created this for the greater good of saving time and providing help. That is why, after over a year of designing and building the tool, we decided to make it free. In a year that is falling short on gifts, this is our gift to anyone who wants to explore a better at-home entertainment experience.”
