A Cardiff children’s hospice has had a custom-built home cinema installed on its premises complete with a raft to top-line projection equipment.

Ty Hafan had its cinema installed as part of the charity programme run by Integrated Systems Europe’s Ian Morrish. The equipment supplied and installed at the cinema by RGB Communications includes an NEC PA500U projector, a 50-inch Premier Mounts RSJ projector mount and other items including a Blu-ray player, AV receiver and advanced speaker system.

Head of Business and Community Fundraising at Ty Hafan, Frank Ady, said that the home cinema made an enormous contribution to the hospice and was making a real difference to the lives of the young residents.

“We have received comments from some of the children that it feels like you’re actually in the films,” he said. “The new system has also been put to the test with video games. We are so grateful to all those involved.”

Gordon Innocent, from RGB Communications added, “Getting involved in this project has been a wonderful experience, the generosity of our suppliers and the reaction from the children has been something really rather special. This project has been very interesting and valuable, and the end result looks and sounds great.”
