How You Can Enjoy High-Performance Audio and Video All the Time

Instead of going to the cinema, why not bring the theater experience home to you? By creating a custom home theater, you enjoy a grand entertainment space in another room – just steps away. A private cinema also takes movie-watching to the next level. Movie night becomes an exciting occasion and one you have complete control over! Still, you may wonder what it means to have a home theater. After all, couldn’t you just watch a movie in your living room or bedroom? In this blog, we’ll highlight the benefits of having a private cinema in your Newport Beach, CA, home.

1. High-Quality Visuals

The best thing about customizing a theater room is the big-screen 4K TV or laser projector. Unlike anything you experienced before, the newest video technologies allow you to enjoy the best visuals at home – certainly comparable, if not better, than the movie theater. Your theater screen displays 4K images in ultra-high definition for brighter and sharper images. Also, a bigger screen with advanced technologies and more pixels (over eight million) deliver more detail in every scene. So, if you’re watching live sports, you’ll catch every play like you’re practically on the field. During a movie, you’ll feel like you’re actually a part of the action.

2. High-Performance Audio

Imagine watching a movie without hearing the dialogue, music, or sound effects. The entire experience would fall flat. Incredible audio adds more emotion to movies. That’s why it’s essential to have a surround-sound system that envelops you. Otherwise, you might as well watch the movie on your phone. Action movies, live sporting events, and epic dramas come alive when you have surround sound. But in order to enjoy your sound system to the fullest, you also need a room that has acoustic treatment. It’s one of the significant benefits of customizing your theater room at home, and it dramatically improves the sound quality. Acoustic treatments not only produce high-quality sound, but you feel everything that you hear. Instead of simply listening to the sound, you’ll be spellbound by every musical note, piece of dialogue, and sound effect.

3. Complete Automation

An automation system in your home theater allows you to control the lights and every other technology. For instance, preset the lighting to switch off when the movie starts and turn back on as the credits roll, like in actual cinemas. If you want the lights to be at a particular brightness level throughout the movie to set the mood and ambiance, just a single tap of your fingers and everything adjust to your settings. And, of course, you can connect all the AV equipment to your smartphone or any other keypad control, allowing you to play your favorite movies without leaving your comfortable spot. Adjust the volume, select the movie from an online streaming service, and start and stop the show right there on your smart mobile device. It’s so easy – complete control!

Comparing the Needs of a Media Room to a Home Theater


Your Orange County Home Theater Installation, Explained

There are two primary styles of home entertainment spaces that the audio/video specialists at Launch Systems incorporate into homes in Huntington Beach, CA and the greater Orange County area regularly. The home theater is perfect for movie buffs that prefer a low-light, low-distraction environment. The other is the media room, great as a multi-use space for the entire family to enjoy simultaneously, even if you aren’t all watching the big screen. To determine the best fit for your home, it’s important to assess the entertainment space and the needs of your family. Scroll below to learn more about what’s required for media room and home theater installations!

Home Theater

For a home theater space, it’s critical to assess the size and shape of your room. Having a projector and projection screen combination is a common solution for larger, longer rooms. Projection screens can be much larger than TV displays, though at a higher cost, and ultra-high-definition 4K projectors provide crisp, vibrant colors. Tiered seating arrangements are frequently incorporated in home theater designs to ensure every viewer can see the big screen at the front of the room. You can even incorporate your Control4 home automation system to lower the projector from the ceiling and raise it back, effectively hiding away your technology when it’s not in use. Home theater spaces are dark, immersive entertainment areas that the entire family can enjoy; they offer large viewing screens and plush, tiered seating for the most comfortable and immersive viewing experiences.

Media Room

While a home theater installation is more expensive, a media room installation is nicer to your pocketbook. Though not as large as projection screen and projector combinations, TV displays are getting progressively larger each year and cost considerably less. Media rooms serve the entire family simultaneously, so the kids could be playing billiards on the other side of the room while you and your partner lounge on the sectional sofa watching the latest Netflix episode of your favorite show. Sound in a media room can still be immersive, and automated blackout shades can block out any annoying glare or sunlight from outside, but due to the multi-function use of the space, it’s not the best spot for movie watchers that get distracted easily! Most media rooms are also flowing spaces where family members can come and go from the room as they please. They also come in many shapes, whereas a home theater is typically in a rectangular space. You can also utilize the Samsung Frame TV display to serve as a work of art when it’s not being used for movies, sports, or gaming. Then tap your finger on the smart device of your choice to adjust the display, change AV sources and more! To determine the best fit for your Huntington Beach-area home, let the Launch Systems team take a look at your entertainment space. Media rooms and home theater installations are some of our specialties, and we’d love to chat with you at the bottom of your screen!
