Home Theater Boot Camp

The goal of CEDIA’s Home Theater Boot Camp training is to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to properly install, set up, and calibrate a typical home theater or media room system.

This training is recommended for those who already have a basic knowledge of home theater setup. Upon completion of the course, attendees should be able to:

  • Describe the digital and analog signals and formats currently used in audio and video systems and how they are processed and used within the system
  • Describe the function of various audio and video interconnects
  • Understand the basics of room acoustics, acoustical treatment, and sound transmission issues
  • Install components in a professional rack configuration, taking into consideration thermal management and ergonomics
  • Utilize proper documentation and labeling of the installation
  • Install and mount a projector, flat-panel display, and loudspeakers according to recognized industry standards (CEDIA Advanced Residential Electronic Systems and CEA/CEDIA Recommended Practices)
  • Perform basic audio and video calibration to ensure optimum system performance
