Daniel from The Palms Lifestyle Villages in Tikipunga wanted to ensure his residents can enjoy a premium experience in their cinema room.

Skopik was contacted soon after Daniel’s experience visiting the Remuera Gardens Retirement Village cinema. He wanted a high-end cinema that could be controlled via a simple system that staff and residents could comfortably use.

Upon a site visit, AV Manager, Jeff Sundrum discussed Daniel's requirements and assessed the rooms specifications. In collaboration with Izzard Design, Skopik transformed an empty box, into a tier-seated, fully-automated cinema.

With the use of reliable and intuitive Control4 automation hardware, staff and residents were able to utilise the cinema with ease.
