Home Theater Projectors

1In the ‘50s and ‘60s, home movies were very popular. Parents would carry a large camera on trips, film the events, and occasionally set up a projector and screen for family and friends to view the silent movies. Much has changed over the years.

The Basics
With the dawn of cable television, came premium channels, which provided full-length movies with no commercials. And JVC introduced the VCR, allowing us to buy, rent or record a movie and watch it whenever we were in the mood. However, while it was fun and convenient, it could not measure up to the real movie theater experience: the big screen, the crisp picture, and the surround sound. Little by little, we improved our home viewing options with Laser Discs, digital surround sound, DVDs, and high definition televisions.

The Complete Cinema Experience
1Now, in the 2000’s, we can truly bring the cinema experience home. Start with the wide screen high definition flat screen television. The picture is crisp, clear, and vivid. Add a surround sound system, complete with five speakers (or more) and a sub-woofer; now the sound is amazingly realistic. A Blu-ray disc player will offer the best possible picture and make the figures truly seem to jump off the screen. For the die-hard movie fans, an 8 to 10-foot screen can be used with a video projector for almost life-sized images that will really make the most of the movie experience and completely envelop you in the story.

The Settings Count
With so much technology at our fingertips, families are taking the home cinema experience a step further. If we can make the moment look and sound like we are at a movie, then we should feel like it too. Specific materials supply the best acoustics and comfortable furniture, placed strategically for ideal viewing, complete the effect and make going all the way to the movie theater an unnecessary outing.
