Integrator Breathe installs HD Panasonic visual experience13 August 2013
Breathe, a commercial and residential AV integrator based in Henley-In-Arden, UK, has installed a comprehensive Panasonic entertainment and security system in a riverside home.
The company was selected to create a professional-quality high-definition visual experience in an indoor pool enclosure and in the lounge area of the home, with design and implementation of a new securtity solution rounding off the project.
The new pool side display had to provide optimum viewing in the restrictive humid environment, hazardous for electronic equipment. For this Breathe selected a Panasonic TH-103PF10 high definition 103in professional plasma display – chosen due to its bright Full-HD 1080p motion-image resolution that offers outstandingly vibrant and life-size picture quality.
Breathe, alongside engineering experts Unicol, installed the screen with an anti-reflective glass window using a custom lifting bracket that hoisted the 250kg screen securely into its optimal position. Furthermore the plasma had to be encased in a heated and circulated environment to prevent the screen from misting.
Elsewhere in the house, a Panasonic full-HD 3D TH-103VX200 103in Professional Plasma Display was selected For the lounge home cinema system.
When asked to provide a security solution, Breathe again recommended Panasonic and installed a Panasonic security system consisting of six WV-SW355 fixed dome cameras and one WV-SW316 static network camera, both of which feature high sensitivity HD quality images with 128x dynamic range for facial clarity, IP66 rated housing for protection against vandalism, and IP connectivity. The cameras are connected to a Panasonic WJ-NV200 PC-less 16-channel NDR via IP which simplifies set-up, recording, and control of the cameras effortless. The cameras are able to be controlled via mouse on both the 103in Professional Plasma Displays and additionally by any compatible touch-screen device or web browser. Not only is this said to create a strong sense of security, Breathe’s director, Neil Cusdin describes the solution as a ‘home environment in harmony’.
