Home Theater PC (HTPC), media centre and xbox installer London

Multi-trade can integrate your electronic devices to make them work together as one home entertainment system in London. We can provide you with a fully qualified and experienced Audio Visual engineer to discuss your budget, talk you through your options and provide you with a free quote of how much it will cost to achieve your request. Multi-trade provide audio visual services in North, South, East and West London - anywhere inside the M25.

What is home entertainment integration?

A well designed home entertainment system combines all your electronic systems: Home Cinema, music playback, music zone control, lighting control, security, central heating, air conditioning control, electric gates, water fountains - even fireplaces. Anything electronic can be combined into one intuitive, seamless control system.

Depending on your budget, literally anything can be made to work together. We can install your home with high end control systems such as Crestron or Pronto. But, at the other end of the scale, did you know you can also use your PS3 or Xbox as an entertainment hub or media center? Or even use your PC as a home theatre? It's called HTPC. We can put one together for you or install an off the shelf unit. Let us show you how.

We have the experience and ability to tailor a solution for your requirements.

Home theatre PC (HTPC)

A Home theatre PC (HTPC) or a Media center is a convergence device that combines some or even all the capabilities of a PC with a software application that supports and makes it easy to store and retrieve video, photos, music, and sometimes allows digital video recorder functionality.

Games consoles as media centers

Any modern games console can be used as a media center. Using the console this way can allow you to watch Television and films, play music, access Youtube, BBC iplayer, facebook, Twitter and surf the internet from your main TV or any other TV in the house. Currently the Xbox is the best platform for this type of use. But we can integrate most consoles.

TestimonialI am so happy that I called the Multi-Trade! I had a real lot of mess behind the computer and television in my home. I wanted them all to be put together nicely. And when they came they told me that I can also use the xbox for playing songs and dvd. I did not know this before and am very happy I know now! Thanks to the Multi-Trade.

Robert Wong, London

TestimonialI know nothing about technology other than what I want it to do! I had used Multi-trade before for some electrical work and was very pleased to find that they also knew about computers and televisions. And they did just as good a job with the AV as they did with the electrics. So, I recommend you call them.

TestimonialI was very happy with your services, thank-you. James is very knowledgeable.

The Multi-trade difference

There are plenty of companies out there competing for your business - and you need to make sure you're armed with all the facts before you make a decision about which one to choose. Here are a few things to check before you decide - we're confident that if you're looking for great service you'll choose Multi-Trade!

  • Does the company or tradesperson you're considering offer free quotations?
  • Do they offer an open and honest pricing structure with no hidden costs?
  • Do they have a contactable office, not just a mobile in case of any queries?
  • Does anyone answer the phone in the day?
  • Are their tradespeople honest, reliable, polite and vetted?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'no' then give us a call - we can confidently answer 'yes' to all of these questions. Not sure? Check out our testimonials page to see what some of our previous customers think of our customer service!
