Customer project 152 - Derian House Cinema Room
There's no getting away from the fact that the home cinema sector is very much about self-indulgence - we don't really need huge TVs or projection screens, but they are very nice ...
So, the UK's home cinema professionals exist to help enthusiasts spend their money.
But, to show that it's not all take, take, take, our trade association has a programme of sharing these technical goodies with those who could do a bit of cheering up.
CEDIA members combine to contribute skills and equipment for creating home cinema rooms in children's hospices.
A few years ago Starscape was happy to supply fibre optics to the Bluebell Wood hospice in Sheffield.
This year, in a project coordinated by Stephen Nevison of Intuitive Homes (www.intuitivehomes.co.uk) Starscape once again was invited to participate.
Our contribution was to supply prefibred ceiling tiles to create a star ceiling in the home cinema room.
The cinema room was opened by actor Ben Batt. Project coordinator Stephen Nevison, who worked tirelessly to bring this to fruition, stands modestly at the back during the opening ceremony.
