A media room combines the larger-than-life audio and video sensation of a home theater, but in a multipurpose room that can be used for other occasions.
Media rooms are optimized for more lifestyle-friendly use, such as impromptu video game sessions, Sunday double-headers or family movie nights.
Choosing an HDTV Panel or Projection Screen
A media room may contain a concealed projection system, a large flat panel TV, or both, plus the Blu-ray players and media managers to keep your family entertained. They’re also generally brighter than dedicated home theaters, so the display selection needs to take that into account. High quality TV panels are able to compensate for lighting conditions with variable contrast. New projection screen materials are able to selectively reject ambient room light, while maintaining the projector’s brightness and contrast.
Home Media Servers
Gone are the days of storing all your movies and music on shelves and in cabinets. New audio and video servers or media managers can hold all your music and high definition video on compact hard drives that are ready to serve it up to any room or AV system in your home. Smart phone and tablet control makes it easy to find whatever you want with a few taps of your finger.
The next big thing in home video is 4K, also known as Ultra HD, and it’s already here. 4K resolution displays offer four times the pixels of standard 1080p HDTVs. Exciting new 4K projectors and TVs deliver video with cinema precision that you won’t believe.
With 4K, you get more detail, depth and a 3-dimensional look even when watching 2D content. If you like really big screens, then 4K is the way to go, because it lets you sit closer without seeing individual pixels. 4K content is coming to the home quickly, but today’s 4K TVs and projectors can upconvert any HD video signal to 4K resolution, so all your content looks better.
