Being an ‘au courant’, hip and happening individual in the 21st century, you are probably loaded with all the latest fabulous gadgets like the iPhone, the iPod and the iPad. Since there isn’t yet an iTelevision in the market isn’t it about time you brought man’s greatest invention, the home theater, to your own household? Lucky for you, it’s just a simple 2 step installation.
Step 1: Purchasing the paraphernalia. When you’re downright bored of watching the same serials and shows on your ancient CRT television, it is but obvious that one would take the decision to get a state-of-the-art home theater installation that will take your entertainment up a few notches! Visual media, at its pinnacle of influence, advertises a variety of theater systems, large screen TVs and projectors. Each company tries to sell their product and the buyer ends up very confused. Unfortunately, in the spider-web of facts, many a truth is strangled. Choosing the right components is vital for the successful installation and running of your home theater.
A critical part of the home theater system other than the TV antenna installation, is the video projector. Depending on what you need to watch, and where, there are a few deciding factors: brightness, contrast, pixel density, color resolution, TV screen size and portability. When you are at a store, be sure you ask about these factors so you can make an informed decision. For example, if the size of your living room if small, it is better to get a projector with a lesser contrast ratio as sharp brightness will increase the stress on the eye.
Another point that many tend to overlook is the color reproduction. Not all projectors display color with the same intensity. Check to make sure it is not overly yellow or red based as that reduces the image clarity. A good trick is to carefully note the color in the brightest and darkest areas of the image. Most projectors have adjustable settings that let you fine-tune the color and brightness perception to your liking during the installation.
The great thing about TV projector installations is that it is the cheapest way to get your own home theater. If you are mostly interested in watching movies with a drive-in effect, you do not need to invest in a high definition large screen television. With the rightly adjusted screen size and resolution, even a thick white sheet on the garage door can act as a perfect viewing medium. If you intent to use it outdoors or in a variety of locations, it is best to go with something lightweight and sturdy. Also, TV screens come in a range of sizes and fabrics. For a good clarity image output, be ready to spend a bit on something suitable to your projector.
An LCD or DLP TV projector is not constrained by the limitations of a slide projector. Not only can you watch movies and shows, you can also use it at your workplace for to do fabulous presentations, knowledge transfer, demonstrate short videos etc and totally wow your audience!
