Get the Best Visuals and Audio from Your Home Theater
Everything you need for the best experience possible when watching your favorite movies or shows
If you’re a dedicated film buff or TV binger, there’s nothing quite like watching your favorite movie or show in comfort and style in a home theater. A custom home theater represents a significant investment, though, which makes your choice of equipment and systems crucial.
Are you confident you know what display, speakers and other gear are the right choice for your home theater? If you’re not sure, check out this blog. We’ll walk you through some home theater design tips that will help you design the ultimate movie space in your Keller, TX, home.
For the best value and picture quality for your home theater, you want a 4K UHD display. As with many things in life, however, not all 4K TVs or projectors are created equal. For example, a display that uses High-Dynamic Range imaging, or HDR, offers greater color contrast and creates a more lifelike image on-screen.
Another feature to keep in mind is the screen refresh rate. The refresh rate measures how many times the image on-screen updates every second. A higher refresh rate means a less blurry image when something is moving on the screen, which is key for live sports and other content with a lot of action or movement. High-end 4K displays have refresh rates up to 240 Hz (this means the on-screen image updates itself 240 times per second).
We’d also strongly suggest buying a 4K TV with an OLED screen. Every pixel on an OLED TV display is lit individually, which greatly helps separate brighter and darker tones within an image. An OLED display gives you a true black background color, helping other colors pop for a more intense, lifelike picture.
For many years, one advantage movie theaters always had over home theaters was sound quality. With Dolby Atmos, however, you get the same level of sound quality and immersion you’d experience at your local multiplex.
What makes Dolby Atmos superior to other surround sound systems? It’s the level of immersion. Your standard surround sound installation feeds sound from your receiver to speakers scattered throughout the room. Such systems usually include center, left, right, and rear channels.
With Dolby Atmos, every sound is rendered as an individual audio object distinct from anything else on the soundtrack. Each of these objects is then placed in a three-dimensional environment generated by speakers placed to your left, right, in front of you, behind you and overhead. Listening to a movie with Dolby Atmos sound is like nothing you’ve ever heard before.
INTEGRATION AND YOUR NETWORK
The primary goal of any smart home technology is to make life easier and more fun throughout your home. Therefore, integrating your home theater with your other automation systems is a logical step.
Two easy systems to integrate with your home theater are whole-home audio and lighting control. If you integrate your home theater with other speakers throughout your home, you can listen to whatever’s playing in any room of the house. Along similar lines, integrating lighting control lets you control your TV, speakers and lights from one device.
