Welcome to the Cantara Blog

Welcome to the Cantara Blog. Here we’ll post and discuss topics that relate to A/V, Cinema and Control System technology that we find interesting or important. We live and breathe this technology, so we’re always thinking, seeing or working on something interesting and cutting edge.


Pretend City opens to the public


Cantara-designed and built Audio/Video and automation systems will entertain several hundred families daily at the first-of-its-kind 28,000 sq ft children's museum in Irvine. The system includes audio, video, show control, interactive entertainment lighting, exhibit communications, and remote observation.  The Museum features over a dozen interactive exhibits which together form a real “miniature” city, which Cantara brings to life with over sixty unique audio tracks, seven video displays, and two presentation projection systems.  The technology for Pretend City was designed around ultimate reliability in order to meet the demands of a 364 days a year operating schedule.
