What is Multi-Room Video

(16 Feb 2016)

If you're looking to transform your house into a smart home, then being able to watch the news, the latest boxset, that new release on Netflix or your family's favourite film in any room of your home, simply from the touch of a button, is probably pretty high on your list.

This is known as a multi-room video system. A multi-room video system allows you to watch multiple video sources, on every TV, simultaneously. How? By using a video matrix, which can be connected to multiple video sources and screens. For example:

Sources:
1. SkyQ
2. Apple TV
3. Kaleidescape Movie Server
4. Games Console

Screens:
1. Living Room TV
2. Kitchen TV
3. Master Bedroom TV
4. Master Bathroom Mirror TV
5. Home Cinema Projector
6. Playroom TV

Imagine - you could watch your favourite TV chef on Sky while whipping up dinner in the Kitchen, while your partner has retreated to the Snug with the sports channel. Your kids are hosting their friends in the Home Cinema, debating over the next movie pick on the Kaleidescape store and your teenager is browsing for the next big thing on Apple TV in the Living Room. Perhaps, like us, it's always 'just one more episode' of your new addiction but the evenings always seem too short - simply pause, head on up to bed, and pick up again exactly where you left off. No more falling asleep on the sofa!

There's no need for unsightly equipment either. All the equipment can be installed out of sight and you can choose the right screen option for every room - a projector screen in the Home Cinema, a TV that hides itself neatly in cabinetry in the Master Bedroom or 85 inches of stunning ultra high definition video quality on the latest TV in your Living Room. Local sources, such as a Blu-ray player, can be installed too and will still work seamlessly. All control can be done via a dedicated remote control in each room or an app on your smartphone, tablet or both.

It sounds like a picture of domestic harmony to us.
