Intelligent-systems.com defines a concept as a “…basic element of thought. It is a physical, material storage of information (in neurons or electronics). All the concepts in memory are interrelated; they form a web, a net.” (www.intelligent-systems.com.ar/intsyst/glossary.htm). We chose this definition to illustrate an abstract with a tangible image: namely, that memory and interrelationship contain and stand poised to release the latent potential of every thought. Home Audio video concepts are no exceptions. Audio video concepts by their very nature consist of a relationship between that which is heard and that which is seen. The interaction of these two phenomena combines to form the essence of film—deemed by Philadelphia professor and author Camille Paglia the most powerful form of art ever created. If audio video concepts are indeed the core essence of all film, and if storage, retrieval, synthesis and release constitute their practical, tangible expression, it follows that any system that can store, retrieve, and express audio video concepts possibly takes the ultimate form of art to the next level of aesthetic and technical evolution.
We at ILD know this to be a fact. As Houston’s leading art and lighting design firm multispecializing in 3 lighting disciplines, electrical contracting, and home automation and theater, we demonstrate the congruent synthesis of aesthetics and technology through with each sophisticated audio video concept we develop into a home media extravaganza. From the very beginning, audio video concepts developed in partnership with ILD differentiate themselves as true innovations. Our clients—not our consultants—generate their own audio video concepts which we then develop, design, draft, and finally materialize with our multidisplinary skill set, our extensive knowledge base acquired through years of cross training and partnership with other industries, and a vast reservoir of both high-end, world renown name brands and proprietary technology we have patented and engineered ourselves.
Each of our core service offerings provides an essential element toward developing an audio video concept from an idea to a reality. Our home theater lighting design experts provide the critical blend of minimal task lighting required for safe home theater mobility and the specialty mood lighting that supplements genre theme and emotionally intense scenes in ways that public theater lighting has yet to equal. Our expertise in architectural and landscape lighting has armed us with an extensive knowledge base of natural light and its many nuances and enabled us to develop audio video concepts that solve the problem natural light filtering through a window into a room. Our multiple licenses, certifications, and bonding as electrical designers and contractors make us fully qualified and reliable to safely develop and install any necessary wiring, surge protectors, power backups, and electrical panels requisite to a home automation project. Finally, our home automation team itself brings to the table a blended skill set of computer programming and networking, audiovisual equipment installation, innovating home automation control configuration, and the ability to link home theater automation to other automated subsystems such as communications, climate control, and multiple lighting effects.
Imagine then not the just the ideal—but the very concrete and real—outcome for an audio video concept planned, requisitioned, and installed by Houston’s leading multi-specialty consulting firm uniting the aesthetic and the technical, the ideal and the real. Every element, lighting theme, control option, and audiovisual access point is stored on the automation-networking server and activated with a push of a simple button. With professional grade equipment found only through licensed distributors such as us, video offers vastly superior color rendering and depth-perception capabilities. Audio is crisper, with reverb that builds effect without static or echo. Lighting is minimal and unobtrusive…giving audience members just enough visibility to quietly excuse themselves from the room without tripping or falling, and dim enough not to cast glare on the screen. Special effects appear on the ceiling and around selective wall areas to emphasize mood and theme, and music plays quietly in the background to compliment the film’s musical score. Through all of this—and much, much more—audio video concept becomes audiovisual reality. Entertainment, though located within the home, simultaneously enters an entirely new sacred space of art, sound and light in a whole new dimension of living.
Call us now at 713-863-1133 to begin developing your audio video concept into such a living experience. Let private entertainment take you into a whole new realm of adventure with a custom theater system found nowhere else but your home; and let the lights, camera, and action make film come to life and life become art.
