AWE is bringing the biggest and best AWE village to Essential Install Live! this year to provide integrators with the opportunity to find out more about the latest products from a range of brands. AWE’s experts will be on hand on stands Stand 158, 159, 160, 161 and 163 to discuss these new technologies and provide live product demonstrations.

IMAX Enhanced

AWE will deliver the first IMAX® Enhanced demo at an EU exhibition. Visitors to Essential Install Live! will have a not-to-be-missed opportunity to experience how IMAX Enhanced can bring the world’s most immersive entertainment into a home environment. IMAX Enhanced, a partnership between IMAX Corporation and audio leader DTS®, combines the highest-end consumer electronics products with IMAX digitally re-mastered 4K HDR content and DTS audio technologies, to offer consumers a new level of quality in immersive sight and sound experiences for the home.

This exclusive demo will be the feature attraction at Essential Install Live! and will be presented in a purpose-built theatre within the AWE Village. AWE is using its strong brand partnerships by utilising IMAX Enhanced certified products from Sony, Denon, and Marantz. Definitive Technology loudspeakers and subwoofers will also be featured to ensure the experience is of the highest possible standard.


AWE will be showing why it’s the television expert, with the latest screens from LG, Panasonic, Samsung, and Sony on display, as visitors will be able to see the latest technologies from all the major brands. A Sony 100” Crystal LED screen will fill a corner of the stand — allowing attendees to see this impressive and immersive display. Videotree will also be displaying its design-led screens for outdoor, wet room and concealed applications.


URC Total Control will take centre stage in the controls area, with the new flagship MRX-30 Advanced Network System Controller (quad-core processor) and the new MRX-15 Advanced System Controller (dual-core processor). These powerful controllers provide instant two-way communication with the family of Total Control user interfaces and are compatible with third-party devices. The new URC TDC-9100 tabletop touchscreen controller and TKP-9600 in-wall touchscreen will also be on display. Featuring a 10″ colour screen, built-in camera, microphone, and AV intercom, these products are ideal for door integration, room to room, and whole house communication. Solutions from Philips Hue and QMotion will also be on display in this area.

Epson Demo Room

The Epson demo room will include the Epson EH-TW9400 home cinema projector. This affordable projector, with great connectivity and easy set-up, ensures consumers can enjoy the big screen experience and the best looking 4K content. To represent a true to life cinema room, the setup will also feature a Draper projection screen, speakers from KEF and Marantz amplification. Outside the demo room, Epson will be displaying a wider range of its projectors.

Elsewhere on the stand, KEF will be focussing on its custom install speaker range and the new LSX speakers, while Definitive Technology will showcase its range of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, as well as its freestanding subwoofers.
