2k Games Theater | SoundVision Novato, Marin

SoundVision has been working on a very exciting project with 2K Games, Inc. 2K Games is a global video game developer and distributor. If you are not a gamer yourself, chances are your son, nephew, granddaughter or neighbor own and are fans of 2K’s world famous video games.

Located in Novato at the old Hamilton air force hangers, 2K had plenty of room to grow and we were happy to accommodate their unique requirements. One of the hangars was previously used by Disney’s ImageMovers as a motion capture space and we were there to help tweak the facility into a game developer’s paradise.

Additionally, 2K Games had a production room where their artists could work on their projects, but what they needed was to be able to show off their work on a bigger scale. We installed a projector, 120” screen and speakers in their production room giving artists the opportunity to display their work in progress, gather feedback and show off their finished masterpiece to colleagues. Here was the outcome:

Theater & Conference Room

This 134 seat theater was already in place from Disney’s prior use at the hangar, but 2K wanted to be able to utilize the space as more than just an entertainment room. The state of the art theater now doubles as a conference room with theater seating in the back and a U-shaped table near the front to gather for meetings with a discreet pop-up 80″ TV for easier viewing.

We built a  Custom built pop up cabinet 2k Games | SoundVisionpop-up lift integrated into a sleek custom built cabinet to fit the conference room TV, that blends perfectly into the background of the theater. The cabinet includes a video conference camera and a soundbar. During meetings the button is pressed and the TV is quietly risen from inside the cabinet for perfect viewing from the conference table. When not in use, the pop up TV disappears into the cabinet giving way to the theater size screen to be seen throughout the 134 seat theater.

We used Crestron to automate 4 different lighting scenes. The back A/V room was perfect for our projector and its mount as well as our media rack which can be seen in the slideshow below.

For the finishing touches SoundVision gave the original theater room a practical twist. By adding lighting control, a state of the art projector, our automation systems and a pop-up custom made cabinet we were able to convert the theater room into an intimate conference room.

We loved getting creative working with the awesome people at 2K Games! We were left somewhat flabbergasted when the VP said that we, the A/V guys have “the coolest job ever!” We always thought making video games was pretty cool, but when we can turn a room into a 134 seat theater/conference room, “the coolest job ever” is not far from the truth!
