CEA/CEDIA CEB23 – Home Theater Recommended Practice: Video Design

“CEDIA and its certified Electronic Systems Contractors (ESCs) follow these practices to deliver high value to dedicated home theater environments, helping ensure full performance potential for the equipment and the room.”


The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and the Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) created a partnership in 2009 to create a set of home theater design standards.

CEB-23, Home Theater Recommended Practice: Video Design is now in it’s second revision and outlines recommendations for the video design of high performance home theaters that meet or exceed the commercial cinema experience.

Topics covered include projection system layout and environment design, image performance specifications and recommended practices for evaluation and calibration.

    Kindly advice the speaker lay out and the screen size for a 16:9 ratio with three rows of seating for a Dolby Atmos 9.1.2 speaker set up.

      Thanks for your comment. I can’t provide the specific advice you are seeking for free as there is quite a bit of analysis that goes into making specific recommendations on speaker placement and screen size; if you seek home theater layout consulting assistance please request a quote. If you’d like to learn more yourself so that you can put together a layout please read these blog articles. Just a tip – it will be VERY hard to fit three rows of seats into a 19′ long room.

      Thanks and good luck!
