Ready For Some Unique Custom TV Installation Ideas?

The DTV Installations team is constantly asked to suggest the “perfect” custom TV setup. Their response is always the same: only a homeowner and his (or her) family know what’s “perfect,” because they’re the ones who’ll be using the system on a daily basis

What many of those clients are really asking, though, is for more interesting alternatives to today’s standard custom TV installations – something more unique than the usual flat-screen monitor mounted on a living room wall or housed in a custom cabinet with all of the system’s components.

The owner of DTV Installations, John Lysy, is happy to help.

Multiple Screens

Remember the first time you ever saw a television that had “picture in picture” capability? It seemed downright futuristic at the time. Today’s hottest new custom TV installation idea takes the concept much further: two, or even more, flat screen televisions on the same wall. This setup is naturally a godsend for sports fans.

But multiple screens can allow you to easily experience the “second screen viewing experience” that many TV networks now provide with chat, commentary or additional programming running simultaneously on a separate internet channel. A second monitor can also take the place of your smartphone, tablet or laptop for the social networking and surfing you usually do while watching TV, or even allow family members to watch different programs while still spending time together.

Social Networking TVs

If you don’t want to go the two-screen route, there’s an easier solution which is quickly gaining popularity. Many models of smart TVs, including some from Samsung and Panasonic, allow you to bring up a social networking window right next to the traditional viewing screen. Just by having DTV Installations set up the right television, you can watch a show and chat about it live, on the same screen.

Put the TV Above the Fireplace

The centerpiece of many living spaces is a beautiful fireplace. Installing a new flat-screen TV right above the fireplace creates a stunning design statement and is becoming a popular choice among clients, according to John Lysy. However, there are two important issues to consider. If the fireplace is used regularly, the heat and smoke could damage the screen and electronics. And in a small room, staring at a television mounted high on the wall could make your sore neck more memorable than the movie you just watched. Only choose “above the fireplace” if the fireplace is primarily for show, and your room is large.


DTV Installations Receives Coveted Status As Lutron Platinum Dealer

Owner John Lysy is pleased to announce that DTV Installations has been received recognition as a Platinum Dealer for Lutron Electronics, the leading company in the lighting control industry. Lutron is revered for its enormous selection of high-quality smart home lighting controls and systems.

As a Platinum Dealer, DTV Installations is now able to offer clients more flexible pricing options, and bigger discounts, than ever before on Lutron products. On large projects, DTV is now also able to offer free design and installation services.

Very few companies are able to quality for Platinum Dealer status. It requires five unblemished years in business – DTV Installations has been operating for 15 successful years. It requires a minimum of $500,000 in retail sales – DTV Installations has far surpassed that level, due to the number of high-end projects requiring extensive experience and knowledge that we’ve completed. And it requires having mentored smaller companies in the industry, which we’re proud to do on a regular basis.

DTV Installations is honored to have been named a Lutron Platinum Dealer, and we look forward to passing on the many benefits of this status to our valued clients.
