Install a Custom Home Theater For The Ultimate Entertainment Escape
October is a big month for lovers of home entertainment. Football season is in full swing for the sports fan in the house, and film buffs are prepared to get spooked by endless horror movie marathons in preparation for Halloween. But regardless of how you want to use it, there’s no better time to build a custom home theater in your Anaheim, California residence. Catch every game day detail with a perfect picture display on your Sony 4K television, or submerse yourself in a haunted realm of ghosts and ghouls with immersive Dolby Atmos surround sound. This blog will take you through some of the ways you can make your home theater look and sound impeccable.
For plenty of football fans, coaching from the couch is a Sunday tradition. There’s just one problem: most TVs and projectors just can’t capture the details that you’d see watching the game live. That is, until now. Sony’s latest offering, the world’s first HDR capable 4K projector, is poised to revolutionize the way you experience a .
Announced at this year’s IFA conference in Berlin, the not-so-poetically named VPL-VW520ES will be transforming home video soon. As a 4K ultra HD projector, it sports some of the clearest, sharpest and most realistic images you’re likely ever to see on your home screen. But the real draw is HDR compatibility.
HDR stands for high dynamic range. It’s a way of creating deeper, more realistic black and brighter white in digital images. This means that you can actually see more color in each frame and experience new gradients of black, and highly detailed, true-to-life colors – both of which come in handy when telling the ref he made the wrong call!
Movie buffs know that there’s more to watching a movie than just an impeccable image. The soundtrack is just as important – especially when you’re watching a spooky flick. When monsters start jumping and actors start screaming, you want to be right in the middle of the action. And it’s easier than ever with Dolby Atmos.
Atmos is a technology developed to recreate sounds as realistically as possible. Traditional multi-channel surround sound systems limit the movement of sound to specified speakers. Dolby Atmos frees sound from the confines of each channel, resulting in free-flowing audio that makes your movies sound incredible.
Lately, audio manufacturers like Origin Acoustics and Integra have been adopting the sound format because of its versatility and ability to capture every sonic detail. Plenty of Blu-ray producers have been mixing their audio with Dolby Atmos, too. But with quality up-scaling capabilities available on most high-end components, you don’t necessarily have to pop in an Atmos disc for incredible sound.
