Top 3 Home Cinema Technology in 2013

With 3D blockbusters like Avatar scoring megabucks in the theaters, modern home cinema technology has advanced to such a degree that it has now become much easier for a greater number of viewers to replicate the cinematic experience in their own homes. This has occurred thanks largely to great leaps in the development of film technology, as well as increasingly lower costs for the devices needed to install such technology. With a few tips, you can create the perfect movie-viewing experience for yourself and your guests.

A home theater system is an exciting entertainment medium that provides the home cinema user with an immersive viewing and listening experience. Your home theater system can be something as simple as a 42-inch 3D capable TV and a home theater-in-a-box system, or a sophisticated custom-built system with video projector and in-wall speakers. You could have a home theater built around the TV in your bedroom or have a dedicated acoustically perfected room that houses a state of the art HT to fulfill every movie fantasy you’ve ever had. However, there is a lot to consider in-between. With this in mind, we take a look at the three most important pieces of home cinema technology available on the market at the moment, and how they can greatly improve your home cinema experience.

Home Projectors

Most experts agree that anyone who is serious about creating their own home cinema will begin with a projector. There are currently a great number of models on the market, each offering a different level of quality and accompanying price, so choosing the right home theater projector for your needs can be a daunting task. When doing your research, there are a few things to remember in order to ensure your choice matches your needs. Think about technical considerations, such as aspect ratio, resolution and contrast, but don’t forget about practical factors such as installation limitations.

Each technical consideration will have its advantages and disadvantages, so plan exactly what you want from the projector. For instance, a 16:9 aspect ratio may be the best option for modern HD and Blu-ray films, but may not be your best option when it comes to classic films.

Surround Sound Speakers

Surround sound speaker packages are one aspect of home cinema technology that has decreased in price, while also seeing drastic increases in quality. Your home cinema set-up will largely depend on the size of the room you have to work with, so be aware of your limitations before you make a purchase. If you have a relatively small amount of space available, it may be worth looking at something like a soundbar. These will create a wider sound from a single cabinet and have been specifically designed to fit around other devices in your set-up, subsequently saving space.

Alternatively, you may want to go for a complete surround sound speaker system, employing a number of cabinets. If you do, you can either purchase a purpose-built speaker set or explore the theatre-in-a-box option. These packages are usually less expensive, though the quality of the speakers is somewhat diminished. Purpose-built speakers will ensure quality, but at a much higher cost.

Blu-Ray Players

Blu-ray players are now able to offer a lot more than the DVD players of previous generations. Rather than just being a means to play movies, many models are now able to stream content from the internet, act as a hub for other forms of media and connect with USB devices. Ensuring that you own a Blu-ray player which performs a variety of functions is essential when it comes to getting the most for your money. Also, don’t forget that all your old DVDs are still playable, so there’s no need to discard them when you hook up your 3D HD TV to watch a movie next time.

It’s advantage is you can watch any movie in the comforts of your home with the same or more like cinema standards. And with its ever improving features, expect Home Cinema Technology to rise even more. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. I am not huge on the 3D TV’s. I did get a sound bar around Christmas time and wish I had held out for surround sound. I have heard great things about projectors but until I get in a larger space it just wouldn’t be practical.

  3. We always use a good technology for home cinema. From above, Blu-Ray players are quite well. It is really too adjustable with 3D movies and 3D animated movies. I like too much to it.

    As well as projectors, you should seriously consider LED or plasma screens. Plasma TVs with screen sizes of 65 inches are now available.
