Vivid-Tek is one of Westport’s best “wow!” ideas.
Mark Motyl — a longtime resident, and former bond trader-turned-home builder — has created a unique product.
He’s taken those huge in-home theater screens — which look so great when you’re watching them, and so intrusive when you’re not — and hidden them in plain sight.
The screen hides in a credenza or bench — which the buyer helps customize — and emerges with the press of a button only when needed.
The 4K picture is crisp and clear. Great sound comes from Dolby Atmos speakers.
An Apple 4K TV controls the system. Anything on your phone (or other devices) can be projected onto the screen.
And it’s great not just for movies and sports events. Westporters have used the technology for Zoom conferences, calls with Grandma, even online piano lessons.
I’ve written about Vivid-Tek before. Now there’s another angle. And it comes just as cabin fever may be setting in.
Motyl is opening his 1252 Post Road East studio — located between Fortuna’s and the same-day COVID testing center — to families or small groups of up to 6 people, for private evenings of fun.
Just reserve a time on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday night. Select what you want to watch. Then enjoy a private movie, show or game in what would be the comfort of your own home, if you had a 110-inch screen that rose up whenever you wanted it to.
Click here, then click on “Visit Showroom” for a reservation. Then, if you’ve watched a particularly cool event, let “06880” know. We’ll post a photo!
