The movie theater industry is experiencing a crisis right now. Many commercial theaters are still closed, and no chain has offered a detailed plan for reopening safely in the future. Earlier this year, AMC (the country’s largest theater chain) announced it was on the verge of bankruptcy. The uncertainty and fear surrounding going out to the movies during a pandemic have opened a space where at-home entertainment with home theaters can thrive.
The beauty of a custom home theater is that it can be whatever you want it to be — our team will design and install the ideal home theater setup with your preferences and lifestyle in mind. You’ll have complete control over every aspect of your environment and entertainment to make the experience yours.

For a truly amazing viewing experience, equip your home theater with a high-end projector and screen, along with surround-sound audio. Today, residential projector technology is advanced and sophisticated, offering 4K HDR technology that displays amazing contrast with vivid colors, brighter whites and deeper blacks. A top-notch display combined with a high-fidelity sound system — like JBL Synthesis loudspeakers — puts you right in the middle of the action of your favorite movies.
But what truly sets a home theater apart from its commercial counterparts is custom design and calibration. At Walbrandt Technologies, every home theater we design and build is a unique masterpiece. We’ll evaluate your space’s size and shape to determine screen placement, speaker placement and seating design that delivers a high-quality audio and video experience to everyone in the room.
We’ll install acoustic treatments and perform professional calibration to ensure that your AV equipment operates at peak performance. Most AV equipment isn’t calibrated to optimal settings right out of the box — that’s why professional calibration is necessary to make sure you’re getting the best quality from your equipment.
With a multi-source AV receiver, you can watch anything you want, whenever you want. Many powerful home theater receivers can process streaming services, Blu-ray discs, downloads and even video games for you to enjoy.
But you can take the experience to the next level with a media server from Kaleidescape. Kaleidescape stores all your media content — Blu-ray, DVDs, streaming content, movie downloads — and prepares it for delivery as a faithful reproduction of how the director intended the film to sound and look. Kaleidescape servers process movies using minimal compression, which preserves the original quality of the film, and plays media at a rate of 60 frames per second, ensuring smooth transmission with no buffering. Kaleidescape also adds features like screen masking, subtitles and soundtracks for a more enjoyable overall experience.
Smart home automation ensures that your theater environment is optimized for a great viewing experience every time. With a home automation system like Crestron, you can control every aspect of your environment on one interface, like a dedicated touchscreen, universal remote or your smartphone. Roll down the projector, pull up Netflix, dim the lights and hit play on your movie with just a few taps of your smart device. You can adjust the volume, temperature and lighting in the room without getting up and pausing the movie.
In a private home theater, you never have to worry about the room being too cold, the lighting being too bright or the volume being too loud because you control everything right at your fingertips.
