A home theater is designed to mimic or exceed the commercial theater experience. It doesn’t matter if you have a dedicated room with drop-down screen and custom seating or are relying on your family room television, you can create a home theater experience that will be the envy of all your friends.
There are four major components to a home theater: visual, audio, environmental, and control.
The Visual aspect of your home theater is the screen size and location. Obviously this is what you see when you sit down to enjoy your theater. Will you be using a television or a projector? Does your room have windows or is it completely blacked out? The screen is the most visible part of the job and the most difficult one to fix if you get it wrong.
The Audio aspect of your home theater is what makes a movie or sporting event come alive. Do you want Dolby 7.1 surround sound or Atmos Cinema Sound? How many channels of audio do you need? How does the subwoofer enhance the side speakers? Soundtracks for movies and television is more than just dialogue. Subtle sound effects like the rain falling, dynamic explosions in a battle sequence, and the dynamic range of a concert setting all have unique sound requirements. Picking the right audio system adds the wow factor to your experience.
The Environmental part of your theater is much more subtle, but equally important. What kind of seating will you use? Do you want to have custom lighting to enhance the room? How important is soundproofing to buffer your theater from a nearby bedroom or den? There are many environmental adjustments that make a movie experience more enjoyable, and these are typically the special touches that make your home theater surpass the commercial movie theater on Main Street.
Control brings the entire home theater experience together. Your home theater system is filled with complex equipment that must seamlessly work together. The control system simplifies the interaction of all your equipment into one easy to use remote. Whether you have a unified remote or an automation system, the controls will bring your home theater to life.
