Channel
Integrator, URC System Fuels 'Back to the Future' Homage
BILL SHEA, A COLLECTOR
and car enthusiast from
Massachusetts, recently
developed the " 88 MPH
Time Machine Experience. "
Based on the popular 1985
film " Back to the Future, " the
installation features some
parts of the actual DeLorean
vehicle from the film. In the
movie, the DeLorean sports
car was retrofitted with a flux
capacitor to make it a time
machine.
Shea consulted Bernardsville,
N.J.-based Wavelength
Audio Video (Wavelength
AV) and smart home provider
URC for the Time Machine
Experience. The immersive
experience recaptures the
workshop of Dr. Emmett
Brown, the central Christopher
Lloyd character
also known as Doc. It also
provides an exact recreation
of the movie's opening
scene. In that scene, Doc's
radio turns on, his coffee pot
starts brewing, the television
turns on, toast is browned
and dog food is dispensed ...
all in Doc's absence.
All this automation is triggered
by sensors and custom
programming provided by
Wavelength AV and URC.
Shea adds, " URC provided
major components that
made the final product an
amazing, automated display
which will be shared with
many 'Back to The Future'
fans. They also have provided
us with a sales engineer who
has spent many hours helping
bring this amazing display
to completion. "
The full list of URC equipment
included the following:
MRX-30 advanced
system controller
DMS-1200 audio distribution
CCLS
sensors (6)
MRX-2 base stations
TDC-9100 touchpanels
(2)
TRC-1480 handheld
remotes
URC's Total Control was
another major component of
the Time Machine Experience.
According to Lee
Rambler, URC's director of
sales, Total Control is ideal
for deployments with unique
customization such as this
one.
The system includes tabletop
and in-wall touchscreen
controllers, powerful processors,
mobile apps, high-definition
music streaming
amplifiers, voice control
integration and more.
" Working with Wavelength
The re-creation display
includes " Back to the
Future " mannequins.
AV and Bill Shea's team
allowed URC's field sales
to provide an important
resource and activate this

Wavelength Audio Video and URC assisted with equipment
and installation for superfan Bill Shea's " 88 MPH Time Machine
Experience, " which includes Total Control automation
to replicate the opening scene in Doc Brown's workshop.
experience, " Rambler adds.
Additionally, networking
solutions provider Luxul also
served a vital part in the
installation by providing IP
networking products. These
elements aided in system
networking and activating
devices within the experience.
" Working
with Bill Shea
and Marcel Snipes from URC
was an incredible experience
for our team, " says Tim
Manning, solutions expert
and systems designer, Wavelength
AV.
The installation also captured
the attention of Hollywood
and played a big role in
the Discovery+ four-part original
series titled " Expedition:
Back to The Future. " As part
of the series, host Josh Grant
and Lloyd searched for the
iconic Time Machine. This led
them to Shea and his 88MPH
Time Machine Experience.
