THX Certified Professional
THX is the trademark name for a high fidelity sound and image standaard for (home) cinemas and home theater systems. THX was developed by Tomlinson Holman at George Lucas’ company Lucasfilm in 1982, to guarantee that the third Star Wars film, Return of the Jedi, had optimal image and sound. Since then this system has grown out to one of the sound and image standards in the film industry.
The THX system is not a recording technology, and does not specify a certain recording format. All sound and image formats, digital (Dolby Digital, DTS, SDDS) or analog (Dolby SR, Ultra-Stereo) can be played in THX. THX is a system of standards where a film and a cinema have to comply with to call themselves THX certified.
Home Acoustics Alliance
HAA stands for Home Acoustics Alliance. There’s nothing more important in a home theater (or high-end stereo) system than the acoustics of the room. Without a well-thought-out plan, you can have a great system playing very badly. CinemaDream targets with its HAA certificate not just to client with a big budget, but also catering towards existing home theater systems and rooms.
By correcting the problematic areas of rooms and the correct placement of loudspeakers, subwoofers, and the seating, we can make sure there’s a huge improvement in sound of an existing space. Of course, this is not only done by ear; we also use highly specialized equipment like an RTA (Real Time Analyzer), specifically designed for this. We also make use of custom-built simulation software.
