Find Out How to Optimize the Entertainment of Your Hillsborough Home
The best home theater designs are functional, inviting, and optimized for the technology in the room, reflecting the homeowner’s personal style while providing the luxury of a multiplex without any of the headaches. There’s always something new around the corner when it comes to home theater technology, and manufacturers are learning how to deliver high-performance audio, video, and control systems in sleek, sophisticated packages.
Read on to learn about four trends in home theater design that can change how you engage with media in your Hillsborough home.
Your home theater is a room that takes entertainment to new heights, so it should accommodate different media options and viewing/listening experiences. Whether you want to use your room to watch movies, keep up with sporting events, play video games, or listen to your favorite albums in surround sound, you can customize your space to accommodate you and your family’s viewing habits.
Modern video games are thrilling cinematic experiences that can be enjoyed by an audience of non-players, and playing the new Spider-Man game in your home theater is like being in control of a superhero movie. Your games will look and sound phenomenal thanks to high-definition video and rich surround sound. Or maybe you want a cozy home theater design for day-long Netflix binging. No matter what your preferred media is, we can create a home theater that will make it easy to access different entertainment options, so you get the most value out of your space.
When it comes to creating a flexible space, having multiple screens widens the range of what you can do in your home theater. Sports fans can keep up with various games at the same time with a wall of flat-screen displays, and if you want to relax with a movie afterward, a projector screen can drop down in front of the TVs. With an A/V distribution system, you’ll be able to easily control what appears on each television and change the primary audio source when the action jumps to a different game.
Screen as Sound Source
If you don’t have the budget for a full surround sound system, there are soundbar options that dramatically enhance the audio compared to a flat-panel display on its own. And manufacturers like Sony are finding ways to take advantage of ultra-thin technology to create new audio solutions. Sony’s BRAVIA OLED A1E is a 4K HDR TV where the surface is the sound source thanks to four Acoustic Surface actuators on the back of the panel, turning the screen into a large vibrating surface that creates fuller audio.
If you don’t have a dedicated home theater space, you can still give yourself a home theater experience with automated technology and smart home control. You can set a scene that automatically dims the lights, lowers motorized window treatments, directs air flow to your viewing space, and activates your audio-video components with the push of a button. With voice control, you don’t even need a remote. Just speak a specific command that puts your entire system in motion. This is especially handy for multipurpose home theaters, allowing you to change the atmosphere with a few simple voice commands.
