Thiruvananthapuram: Cinema is not just a visual medium but also an environment to experience. This is what is being proved here at the Vanitha 'Veedu' exhibition.
The home theatre facility and related services presented at the Sound Field stall at the exhibition showcased a feature that can beat the experience of watching cinema at film theatres.
The latest technologies including Dolby Atmos multidimensional audio, theatre automation and so on can be experienced at close quarters here.
The highlight of the facility is that a specially arranged room is not necessary for setting up a home theatre. A ready-made theatre can be established in a comparatively bigger room in the house. The walls, floor and ceiling of the room can be covered with acoustic panels. The price of the facility, which also includes in-wall speakers, starts at Rs 3 lakh.
Ready-made staircase is yet another attraction at the exhibition. Ready-made staircases made of glass and steel are equally adaptable to old and new houses. The acrylic handrails give them a magnificent look as well. These are featured at the stalls of Iona and Hiker.
The 'Home Lift,' which can be installed in houses, are also attracting people in large numbers. It can be operated with minimal amount of electricity, as much as is needed for a mixer grinder. The lift is presented by Reliant Elevator.
The exhibition at Vazhuthakad police parade ground is open from 11.00 am to 8.00 pm. Entry is free.
