Making Your Home Theater Stand Out
If you are looking to upgrade your existing home theater system, the viewing and listening experience should be a top priority.
Below are six of the latest upgrades that will get you the best audio, visuals and ambiance in your home theater system.
1) Standard Definition to a 4K UHD Projector
More and more manufacturers are emerging with 4K Ultra HD projectors that will take your viewing experience to the next level. Already widespread among TVs, 4K UHD resolution drastically will improve an image’s quality compared to a typical 1080p projector. With 4 times the resolution as standard high definition projectors, the picture quality is substantially clearer and more detailed.
2) Soundbar to Dolby Atmos Surround Sound Audio
When you go to a commercial theater, most likely the speakers will be Dolby Digital. It’s a brand known for truly immersive surround sound, and now, you can get it in your home. With Dolby Atmos, you can upgrade your system so the sound really does surround you. When a plane flies overhead in the film, you hear it coming from the ceiling speakers, for example. It creates a 3D-quality listening experience you simply can’t get with standard speakers.
3) Standard TV to OLED
This backlighting technology has been around for a while but is just now making its way into the mainstream, especially with its inclusion into the iPhone X and OnePlus 5T. Some of the best wide-screen TVs on the market also utilize OLED – a perfect fit for a dominant home theater display.
4) Traditional Theater Seating to Creative Options
No one ever said your home theater has to look like a commercial cinema. One of the latest home theater trends is to ditch the standard cinema seating for a more creative approach. Love seats, couches, or cushions on the floor – as long as your seating is arranged with ideal vantage points for viewing and listening, you can break out of the home theater seating box.
5) Multiple Remotes to an Integrated Control System
Why have several remotes to control each component of your home theater system? Instead, smart home technology can merge all of your separate devices and remotes into one control system with an easy-to-use interface accessible via smartphone or tablet. Just select your movie, hit play, and the home theater system will do the rest!
6) Thin Walls to Acoustic Isolation
A sign of a poor quality theater installation is that you can hear it outside of the room. Homeowners are realizing the importance of soundproofing and acoustic panels for home theaters. These sound treatment methods help to hold sound only within the infrastructure of a home theater. You can blast the audio within the theater as loud as you want without disturbing your neighbors.
Why You Should Capitalize On the Latest Trends
Home theater technology has come a long way in recent years, and these upgrades really do make a huge difference in the quality of your movie-watching experience. Not only do they help to bring the movies to life, they also streamline the user experience so that you don’t have to spend time wrestling with a clunky, outdated system.
