LIFELIKE IMAGES AND ENGULFING SURROUND SOUND DRAW YOU INTO THE SCENE
There was a time when the best immersive cinematic experience could only be enjoyed at the finest movie theatres, and even those were few and far between. Times have changed. As more homeowners expressed the desire for ultimate entertainment at home, audio video manufacturers listened.
Today, you can experience the big screen with lifelike images in brilliant colours, contrast, and depth. The immersive 3D audio surrounds you, and the latest ergonomically designed tiered recliners or sectionals leave you relaxed. The result is a successful attempt at what every great movie theatre strives for—suspending your disbelief for a few hours and carrying you to another place in time.
At Westcoast Audio Video Gallery, every home theatre installation is customized and unique to our client’s vision and lifestyle. For some, that means a designated home theatre with tiered movie seats, LED lighting, and floorstanding loudspeakers. For others, it incorporates comfy love seats and sofas, in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, and a room designed for group movie nights, video game marathons, and gathering with friends and family for the season’s sporting events.
However, the two traits both takes on the home theatre have in common are lifelike images and immersive surround sound. Let’s explore how we’re transforming rooms into exquisite home theatres in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and Greater Vancouver.

THE LARGER-THAN-LIFE IMAGE
Home video technology continues to advance at a remarkable pace. Today’s native 4K laser projectors offer detailed images and extreme clarity, with brilliant, breathtaking colours and contrast. Combined with the latest handcrafted screens, you experience even coverage from corner to corner.
The result is lifelike images that take you into the scene, whether transported to the far reaches of a deserted island or driving across the African plains.
THE ENGULFING SOUND FIELD
While the picture that takes you into the center of the scene is critical, it’s the immersive sound field that engulfs the listener and transports them to another time. At Westcoast Audio Video Gallery, we partner with Paradigm and Anthem, sister brands and industry leaders in manufacturing high-performance audio equipment, including extensive lines specific to home theatres.
Anthem’s AVM 70 AV processor offers an incredibly immersive 15.2-channel decoding compatible with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and IMAX enhanced. It also supports the ARC Genesis room correction software that uses audio acoustic science to tune the bass response and adjust for issues that may impact audio quality, such as the room geometry and furnishings.
Paradigm, one of Canada’s leading high-fidelity audio brands, offers several options ideal for home theatre surround sound. The Paradigm Founder series brings together six models well-suited for the latest movie soundtracks and object-based audio. It includes three loudspeakers, one standmount, a three-way center channel, and an LCR center channel. The line was named the ‘Best High-End Home Cinema Speakers’ by AVForums in 2021 in its Editor’s Choice Awards.
At Westcoast Audio Video Gallery, we create custom home theatres that deliver an immersive cinematic experience, partnering with industry leaders in audio and video production.
