How a Designer Can Take Your Home Cinema to the Next Level

A home theater brings all your favorite entertainment onto the big screen, whether it is your favorite show on Hulu, MarioKart with your friends, or the quintessential classic film.  It is important to not only have all the correct equipment but to have it installed properly to get the most from your home cinema.  Read on to learn why bringing an Applause home cinema designer into your project early will lead to an unbeatable home theater experience in your Overland Park, KS home.


Long-Lasting Display

The right display can make or break a home theater. It can also be one of the most expensive components of your project. Selecting the wrong display can be costly down the line when replacing it with a more suitable screen.

Every person should have a high-quality and comfortable experience. Important things to consider include ceiling height, ambient light sources, and the size of your room. Whether you are watching a movie or playing a video game, the proper display is imperative to having a good experience. For example, a large TV or a short-throw projector could be a good fit for a small room with a low ceiling. If you try and put in a projector screen that’s too large for the room size, you may have to crane your neck to see the screen.

Consider adding motorized shades or blackout curtains in rooms with windows or other ambient light. For rooms with a lot of natural light, an ambient light rejecting projector screen is an ideal choice to ensure that your picture doesn't become washed out.   Pairing a Laser projector with the correct screen is another solution to combat washout.  The Sony VPL-VW1025ES offers exceptional colors, contrast, and motion using premium 4K HDR and a 2,200-lumen Z-Phosphor laser light source.  Other notable features include the X1™ processor and the ARC-F lens that work in tandem for ultra-crisp images.

Applause Custom Sight & Sound will help you through every step of your project. Our experts know how to consider your room size, viewing angles, viewing distance, light sources, and more to create the perfect viewing experience. Our custom designs are perfect for TV shows, blockbuster movies, video games, and sports games. You will be able to relax in a dedicated home theater that is personalized to your needs.

Immersive Sound

Sound is another essential quality of any home cinema. The right surround sound system will put you into the middle of the action of all your favorite movies, turning your experience from passive to immersive. Hear every note of a movie film score, every detail in the delivery of a monologue, and all the mayhem of a high-speed chase.

On the other hand, the wrong sound system can make your home cinema seem dull and underwhelming or even cause ear fatigue.  The latest surround sound formats include Dolby Atmos and DTS:X technology, which create a full, rich, and three-dimensional sound experience that rivals your local cinema. This technology frees sound from channels so that it can move freely around you. This object-based approach sends sound where it would occur in space. For example, if a crash comes from the left side of the screen, the accompanying audio will play on the left speakers, providing a dynamic experience. When a plane flies overhead in your movie, you’ll hear it fly from one side of your home theater to the other.

To get the most out of your home cinema speakers, work with a professional installer like Applause Custom Sight & Sound. We will help you avoid the costly renovations required to fix an improperly installed system. When you work with us, you can rest easy knowing that the proper speaker placement, acoustic treatment, and audio system calibrations will bring you the best sound possible for your home theater.
