ASK THE EXPERTS: HOME THEATER TECHNOLOGY

CE Pro Home Theater

As Home Theater technology improves, it is also becoming more affordable.

Jordan Carson and Scott Bekins discussed this as Classic Stereo made its Ask The Expert debut on WOOD TV 8 today.

HOME THEATER: MORE AFFORDABLE THAN EVER

This is a unique time for projection equipment. The technology has improved immensely, but the prices for quality equipment are lower than ever.

The Classic Stereo Reference Theater features our Sony 4K laser projector. Sony has really perfected 4K technology because they are involved in each step. They make the cameras, the studios, TVs and more. If you think you lose any video quality with a projector, we invite you to visit our showroom and experience a Sony 4K picture.

Projection screens have also made great strides over the years. Seymour Screen Excellence makes an acoustically transparent screen. It allowed us to put speakers behind the screen, so the audio comes right at you. Often times you lose either audio quality or picture quality with such technology. However, our Reference Theater proves Seymour’s screen delivers a quality picture and tremendous sound.

EXPERT PLANNING MATTERS TOO

Nobody installs it better than Bekins. Our installation team has won national and international awards for Home Theaters, Media Rooms and more.

It is important to think about every aspect of the room. One weak link can lessen your entire experience. That is why we handle everything from the floors, to the walls, the furniture, the speakers, the screens, the projectors and more.

We want your to get fully immersed in your viewing experience.

Visit our showroom or give us a call and let us show you how to enjoy the best Home Theater experience.

HELPING THOSE WHO HELP LOCAL CHILDREN

Installing electronics for a cause

Our internationally-acclaimed Bekins Electronics Integration team recently donated their time to assist the Children’s Advocacy Center in Holland. Early in the process, the team helped pre-wire the center’s expansion. In late January, they returned to finish installing the electronics.

Dozens of our employees also returned on the weekend to install appliances, help move boxes, furniture and much more into the new addition.

All of our volunteer efforts allowed the center to not miss any days of helping local children who need their assistance.

MOVING DAY!

WHAT IS THE CHILDREN’S ADVOCACY CENTER?

The Children’s Advocacy Center in Holland provides abuse prevention and intervention with a coordinated and multi-disciplinary team approach to Protective Services. This approach prevents children from talking to multiple agencies and giving multiple interviews. Some of their services include:

  • Forensic Interviews
  • Medical Exams
  • Child Assessments
  • Counseling
  • Groups
  • Courtroom Orientation
  • Family Advocacy

WHY EXPAND?

The nonprofit children’s assistance organization will add 7,000 square feet of therapy rooms along with children and family service space.

The $1.7 million addition will more specifically provide:

  • More space for private meetings with victims and their families.
  • More space to train teachers, counselors, family members and staff from across the state.
  • A store to provide essentials for displaced mothers and children.
  • An Art Therapy Studio and a Healing Garden.
