The Newest Technologies for Your Home Theater
Learn How a Leading Home Theater Designer Can Elevate Your Entertainment
Not all home theaters are created equal. Some rooms have nothing but a 4K TV with a soundbar and a couch . . . and that’s it. Other spaces are more luxurious and include – a large screen with a 4K projection, a surround-sound system, smart lighting, acoustic treatments, and comfortable theater seats. Whichever category you fall into, even if you’re in the second one, you can do better!
As a leading home theater designer in Carmel, IN, Digital Home Design knows how to make your theater space an enviable place. In this blog, we’ll discuss four of the newest trends in the industry and how you can transform your home theater with them.
8K TV for Unmatched Realism
TV manufacturers know that homeowners want the best displays in their home theaters. It’s all about realism, vibrancy, color, and contrast. Well, if that’s what you want, then you won’t be disappointed by an 8K TV. To give you some perspective, HD (high-definition) TVs of years past had a resolution of only 2 million pixels. Then, the 4K TVs came out with 8 million pixels.
Now, taking center stage is the 8K TV with 32 million pixels! The amazing clarity, rich textures, and deep image detail are like nothing you’ve ever seen. You’ll everything with unparalleled vibrancy. Installing an 8K TV in your home theater creates a cinematic experience so visually immersive that you’ll feel like you’re in the movies.
Ultra-Short Throw Projector
Deciding between a TV or a projector is a personal choice. Whichever one you choose, there are excellent options on the market. If you prefer a projector, then the ultra-short throw may be ideal for you. Homeowners get them for one of two reasons. 1. They have a small home theater. 2. They don’t want a projector hanging from the ceiling behind them.
The solution is an ultra-short throw projector. It casts a large image from a very short distance. In fact, Sony’s projectors only need to be between 2 feet and 8 inches from the screen to project a large image – an image as large as 120”! Still, it gets even better. Sony’s popular ultra-short throw projectors feature 4K resolution with HDR and 2500 lumen bulbs that produce an amazingly lifelike picture. You’ll see from one corner of the screen to the next with perfect image clarity.
Hidden Speakers: Heard and Not Seen
You appreciate the high-quality sound, but you’d rather not see the speakers. Some homeowners enjoy the look of speakers in their home theaters; others do not. Going “invisible” doesn’t have to be hard when you have professional installation help. Invisible speakers can be placed in the wall, ceiling, or other hidden locations. You’ll enjoy fantastic surround-sound without speakers distracting from your home theater décor.
Complete Control by Voice Command
Managing every technology in your home theater with a Control4 smart home tablet is already a fun and futuristic perk. With one touch of a button, you control the motorized shades, the lights, the audio and video, and even the indoor climate. Now, with voice command, you don’t need to touch a thing. Just say the word, and each system responds according to your command. This up-and-coming trend is changing the way homeowners interact with all the technologies in their homes.
