What is a Home Theatre Room?
A Home Theatre is more than just watching TV at home. It is bringing a cinematic experience into your loungeroom, making your favourite movies and sporting event come alive like never before.
The centre piece of any Home Theatre is the TV. It can range from one of the latest 4K Ultra high definition smart TV screen to a wall size projector screen.
The crispness and clarity of the images will make you feel as though you are experiencing what is on the screen.
The Home Theatre seating consists of either a cinema couch or chairs with recliners placed together with armrest.
Some of the more advanced seating have genuine leather seats, backrests, footrest and backlit buttons.
Surround Sound Speakers
To truly complete the theatre experience you will need a surround sound system. Surround sound usually consists of 5 to 7 speakers and a subwoofer. The speakers are positioned around the room giving you a realistic experience.
The subwoofer is a large stand alone speaker that provides deep rich bass sound you would hear when an explosion rips across the screen in your favourite action movie.
The amplifier is also an important part of your sound system. It processes the sound and distributes it to your speakers. You can’t have a good sound system without a good quality amplifier. One important consideration is to have an amplifier that can interface with the rest of your home theatre equipment.
Blu-ray and UHD DVD Players
Blu-ray and UHD is the name of the next generation DVD players, developed by the Blu-ray disc association (BDA), a group of the world’s leading consumer electronics such as Sony, Samsung and Sharp to name a few.
The format was developed to enable recording and playback of High Definition videos.
Blu-ray discs and UHD discs produce incredibly sharp picture and vivid colours in HD and amazing surround sound. It also offers 5 times the amount of detail compared to standard definition discs.
