Directors Home Theater - Lights!, Camera!, Action!

About This Project

This Directors Theater was built by Salcito Custom Homes with Interior Design by Studio One. Architecture by Swaback Partners. Desert Sound was engaged to Design, Install and Automate the room.

A top-end home theater is as much about controlling the sound as it is about reproducing the soundtrack the way the director intended. In this premium screening room, Desert Sound outsourced acoustical design to Reiley Sound.

The room-within-a-room design started at construction. The floor, ceiling and walls were decoupled from the concrete for full sound isolation.

The extensive acoustic treatments help the speakers and subwoofers sound their very best.


"I have worked directly with Jim Miller over many years, and he has always demonstrated a strong work ethic and knowledge about his industry. He has shown that he is a business person that you can trust, and he is conscientious about his work. On top of that, he is just a nice, good guy.

Jim and his staff deliver more than expected. Great products combined with excellent installation and service. I highly recommend Desert Security and Sound.

Jim has performed several high-end installations for me as a contractor; they are very knowledgeable, professional and courteous."

Classrooms Without Boundaries

About This Project

The University of Phoenix was seeking to create a new approach to learning and enrollment — allowing for student interaction, collaboration and teaching utilizing advanced technology to create “a classroom without boundaries.”

From the Technology Room there are 153 audio video sources distributed to 4 Collaboration Rooms, Student Resource Center, Briefing Room which include 63 Televisions, 9 Video Conference Systems, Lutron Lighting and Shade System.

The campus brings together a mixture of technology, design and classroom instruction. Desert Sound designed, installed Audio/Video, Network, Lighting and Shades systems into one of the largest Savant Systems.

Students are able collaborate in the classrooms, it might be through a laptop that they can plug into the wall. The rooms feature plug-ins for an assortment of electronic devices, such as laptop computers, iPhones and thumb drives that connect to large monitors mounted on the walls.

Students can communicate remotely telepresence. This allows them to interact as if they were in classroom.


We engaged Desert Sound & Security and Savant Systems to provide control and automation functionality. Our faculty and students can exhibit their work by connecting their personal electronic devices to classroom systems and displays, dramatically increasing the impact and relevance of the subject matter being taught all through the Savant Systems and Desert Sounds simple user interface.
