Here at The Digital Picture, we are obsessed with sound, the right sound and making sure you hear things correctly in your home cinema or entertaining environment.

How do you treat sound in a space? With a simple but carefully designed combination of sound absorbers and diffusers we can easily make your home theatre room sound great.

Our product of choice for this is Artnovion. At Artnovion they are driven by passion. Passion for acoustics, passion for performance and their eternal passion is to provide an amazing customer experience. With a talented team, they work hard to push the boundaries of acoustic engineering to create a unique collection of trendsetting & high performance products.

At the core of any acoustic room treatment package are sound absorbers and sound diffusers. Sound absorbers do exactly that, absorb sounds that can create unwanted echos within your room. Sound diffusers are used to break up sound that is reflected off the hard surfaces in your home theatre room and can assist the speaker system in creating an exciting surround sound experience.

Have you ever watched a movie but had to turn up the volume to hear the actors speak, only to be shocked at the loundness when the action starts and had to turn it back down again?  This YoYo effect is caused by poor room acoustics.  Because of sound reflections you may hear the sound 3, 4 or even 5 times rather than once.  Sound absorbers and diffusers can fix this and make the dialogue easy to understand.


Below is an example of a Home Theatre fit out with an Artnovion sound treatment package.

After we have treated your home cinema for basic sound reflections with absorption and diffusion, we then move onto Bass Traps. In any home theatre, good bass performance is often difficult to achieve.  We regularly use multiple subwoofers in our home theatre designs to help even out the bass response, but then we also add in multiple Bass Traps.  Bass traps are typically placed in areas of high bass pressure, such as the corners of the room.  A well designed Bass Trap converts this high pressure energy so that it can be absorbed easily and efficiently.  The result for the listener is that the bass will be clean and powerful throughout the low frequency range and movie action scenes will be felt throughout the room.


In the 3D room render below, the Bass Traps can be seen installed into the rear corners of the room.

We have been designing home cinema rooms throughout Brisbane and the Gold Coast for many years and it has become clear that Artnovion are the leaders in home theatre acoustics.  We offer a complete design service to all of our clients, with detailed 3D room renders and designs to help assist you with creating your ultimate home cinema space. With our comprehensive documentation you will be able to see how the room will look and feel, with fabric colours, timber textures, LED lighting designs and more.

Not only are acoustic treamtents great for home theatre rooms, they are also extremely useful for treating any retail showroom, office or hospitality environment such as hotels and bars.  Artnovion have a complete range of systems to suit any environment and have taken extra care to ensure that their products are fire safe and environmentally friendly.

If you have a home theatre installation that you think may benefit from an acoustic treatment package or even if you are looking to build a new home and include a new home cinema, please drop us an email at info@thedigitalpicture.com.au or call us on 1300 322 811 for more details.  We are happy to visit your home or office in the South East Queensland areas of Brisbane, Gold Coast, Byron Bay and the Sunshine Coast.
