Home Theater Essentials for Your Carmel, IN Home
Do you know exactly what you need for a professional home theater? Quality home entertainment takes more than just a fancy TV and surround sound system. There are a number of items you must have installed to get the best benefits of a professional system. While there are some out-of-the-box solutions, it’s always best to work with an audio/video expert. What makes us different? We customize our services to meet your needs and provide the best equipment in the business. Keep reading this blog to check off the list of items needed for an amazing private cinema.
- 4K TV or Projector
If you are going to invest in a professional-grade home theater, we recommend you get the most up-to-date technology so that it’s relevant and ready for the future. Ultra High Definition technology, also known as 4K, is the highest picture resolution you can get, and the entire industry is in the process of converting content over to 4K. Though movies and shows in 4K are limited currently, it is the best, brightest, and most stunning picture you’re going to get and your home will be ready for when everything goes 4K. But until then, Amazon Prime and Netflix offer 4K streaming, 4K Blu-rays are in stores, and some PC games can be played in 4K as well.
- 3D Audio Surround Sound System
The sound and picture in your theater need to beautifully intertwine to deliver the show as the director intended as well as make you feel like you’ve entered another world. Surround sound systems by Dolby Atmos aren’t static; they move pieces of sound from one area to the next to imitate the action on screen. For example, an explosion in an action movie could move from one speaker zone to the next to make you feel like the fire is spreading. Our team will place the speakers around the room so that they all work together and orchestrate the story you are watching.
- A Variety of Video Content
Today you can access video content from many different sources. In the past you had to buy a VHS or DVD, but now you can subscribe to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu and watch unlimited amounts of content 24-7. You’ll need a Blu-ray player, smart TV or streaming device like Roku, or movie server like Kaleidescape which lets you download movies digitally. You should also ensure your Internet connection is strong and reliable. Then you can browse thousands of titles and watch shows anytime.
- Easy-to-use Controls
Once you have the picture and sound covered, you need to make sure you have a system to easily control everything. When there are a lot of capabilities, settings, and switches, controlling your entertainment system can get complicated. We want to take the confusion out of your entertainment experience so that you can press a button and watch a show. Our team can also integrate lighting, shading, the thermostat, security, and more into your room so that the whole scene is prepared in one touch.
- Comfortable Amenities
From cozy sofas to popcorn machines, the last item to check off on your list of home theater must-haves are comfortable amenities. It’s completely up to you to put anything you want in the room to make it feel fun and cozy. Choose a theme to wow you guests like sci-fi and make the room look like the inside of a space ship, or simply add in vintage soda or popcorn machines to make it feel like a retro theater. We have relationships with different designers and builders to help make your dream a reality.
