This course will be presented by Guy Singleton from Imagine This, who previously presented on behalf of CEDIA in India in 2015. 

Guy Singleton has been designing and installing awarding winning luxury theatres for nearly 20 years. He has delivered reference screening rooms for film directors and film producers which included ground breaking developments from both audio and video stand points. As an ISF instructor (for EMEA) and both THX and HAA certified he has been instrumental in pushing the boundaries of state-of-the-art screen room designs for the next evolution of both picture and sound. Guy was involved early on with a 5K HFR Atmos theatre for a famous film director and has subsequently included Auro 3D into his designs.
