Home Theater custom design and installation by VIA

Home Theater

VIA’s definition of “home theater”: a dedicated room devoted to the best possible reproduction of picture and sound. Projection systems, audio systems, seating, acoustics, and room design are carefully planned and engineered to accurately reproduce what the filmmakers intended.

SYNOMYMS: home cinema, screening room, home theatre, media room. For a proper definition of media room, click here to see VIA’s media room page.


VIA has been designing home cinema systems for close to two decades for Oscar award-winners and discerning A-list Hollywood professionals. Constantly ahead of the curve in home cinema entertainment, the vast knowledge base VIA has built serving the entertainment community is applied across the country to all VIA locations. Adapting state-of-the-art commercial cinema technologies and picture/sound best practices to the home environment gives VIA a distinct level of expertise that cannot be found at a typical company that provides home theaters. Trust your home cinema experience to the company uniquely qualified to deliver on home theater’s true potential.

Download VIA's Top 12 Must Know Home Theater TipsA properly-designed private Home Theater will quickly become the favorite family gathering space. A home theater is a unique space; a place to be entertained and to share memorable experiences with friends and family. With immersive technologies such as 3D, UltraHD, DBox motion seating, and now IMAX Private Theatre, the experience you can have in your home will not merely rival a commercial cinema, it will exceed it…if designed and installed properly. A VIA home cinema system allows you to watch first-run movies in your custom home theater while in theatrical release. VIA is also a top provider of professional D-Cinema theater systems for those in the Bel Air Circuit.

Stellar sound, crystal clear picture, no texting teens, the safe environment of your home, and current Hollywood movies in your home is the ultimate entertainment experience.

A high-performance home cinema entails far more than merely selecting high-performance components. Some items VIA designers consider for your theater design include:

  • room construction
  • seating type and configuration
  • row height and spacing
  • acoustical treatments
  • ambient noise control
  • ambient light control
  • room light control
  • equipment & speaker placement

Only when the above items are carefully designed together do you get a true cinematic experience. Far too often we see compromised theaters that miss the mark due to ignoring one or more of these ingredients. VIA’s theater designers work with your architect and interior designer to create your desired aesthetic while ensuring movie and sound performance are not compromised. With the addition of new surround sound formats such as Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D, early planning and speaker placement are more important than ever.

The world’s best picture and sound quality will not mean much if it is difficult to use. VIA home theaters are intuitive. You only need to operate a single self-prompting remote control; it is as easy to operate as a bank ATM. Optionally, you may have your smartphone or tablet device control your theater, too.

After proper room design, component selection, and installation comes another vital step that others often ignore…calibration. VIA technicians will calibrate your video projector and sound system’s performance to Hollywood screening room standards with VIA in-house THX and ISF trained technicians.

A VIA-designed home theater will be the showcase of your home; the space you will love to escape to with your friends and family.
