Ever Dreamed of Creating your Dream Home Theater?
Dreamedia AV can make it come true for you! With the right planning, investing in a home theater or media room can be one of the best enhancements to your lifestyle. Home theaters are great for relaxing, entertaining, and bringing the whole family together. The first step is to plan your space! Will you have a dedicated home theater room or will your system be in a multi-purpose media room? Either way can be a fun experience.
A dedicated home theater or “media room” is designed specifically for entertainment: enjoying movies, sports, TV, and video gaming. Attics, bonus rooms, or spare rooms are great as dedicated home theater spaces. A media room serves for more than entertaining. A family room or bonus room usually doubles as a media room as well
The next steps are deciding both the location and size for your video display. Both the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and THX Ltd , have recommendations on this subject. This step is very important to get right, and is probably the most difficult one to fix if you get it wrong.
Remote control, lighting control, or a popcorn machine can add wow to your creation!
In many cases, spending a few extra bucks on a great remote control, lighting control, or a popcorn machine can add extra wow to your media room. We’ve got lots of suggestions and advice about how to create your own personal magic.
This is the fun part for most people. Significant improvements in video technology can give you a great picture for a fraction of the cost from 10 years ago when it cost double to get a media room installed. This allows more room in your budget for great sound. Unlike video, audio pricing has held very steady in its cost to performance ratio. Recent improvements in home theater speakers will make your surround sound experience even more fun. Matching all your equipment up is where Dreamedia AV experts and our experience will be a big help.
It’s important to have a great picture, but a movie without good sound is a terrible experience. You must be able to clearly understand the dialogue. Great sound immerses you in a film’s sound effects. All things being equal, acoustic treatments (these can be carefully done, normal room furnishings) have a larger impact on the sound than almost any component. Another thing to consider is soundproofing. Will late night viewing disturb others? Should you do something about it?
Other areas to consider are expert audio and video calibration; electrical and power needs; ventilation and HVAC planning; and integrating video gaming. The options are unlimited when it comes to home integration. Dreamedia will offer viso or cad drawings for builders or architects when needed during the design stage.
