Part Technology, Part Style, Pure Excitement
Front-projection systems are the best choice for big-screen movie viewing. They have the largest presence (screens range from 6 to 20-feet diagonally), a wider acceptable viewing angle compared to rear projectors, as well as greater installation flexibility. Front projectors can be mounted on the ceiling or concealed inside it, descending only when in use. They can also be housed inside a small cabinet (e.g. a coffee table) on the floor.
Wide-screen displays available in most front projection systems take advantage of wide screen recordings such as letter-boxed laser discs.
These have a 16:9 aspect ratio (compared to TV's 4:3) that closely matches the true shape of the original, big-screen movie. What you think you lose in the height of the picture you actually gain by seeing its entire width.
In order to play on a conventional 4:3 TV screen, a theatrical movie must be "squeezed" at the sides. This typically involves "pan and scan" editing, in which the editor decides which portion of the movie frame you get to see, and which you do not. Many classic films have been re-released into theaters in recent years in part because so much of their impact is lost when squeezed onto conventional TV screens.
A theater is not a theater without a simple control system, control and ease of use is the name of the game.
Theater control a must have
The thing best buy and other big box companies can not offer is custom control for your theater components, ease of control, custom touch screens on a big easy to see LCD display giving you the control you need. Here are some options that we offer.
Control of your security camera system with on screen view of the front door, back yard, drive way or all at once. Complete control of you Favorite’s list letting you choose your channels on Cable, satellite and antenna by it’s logo offered by your station, right on your screen. Your Alarm system information streamed and controlled at every touch screen, your hot tub and pool control ready to go. Lighting control, screen and lift control, every thing you can think of is controllable and easy to use.
Flat panel, LCD’s and Plasma - The up and coming super stars of Home Theater. With these monitors coming in very bright and highest quality and 160 degree, viewing angel makes FPD the choice for a smaller room, boardroom, bedroom or any room application. The largest monitor to date is 108" diagonal with a theater wide screen (16:9 aspect ratio). If you want your plasma mounted above your fire place we can help, remember the components will not be on your mantel, but in a near by closet or AV cabinet and the video is routed through the wall to the TV. Here a special mount for this rock fire place was used. This mount allows us to hide the wires and surge protector in a can mounted in the rock, when it’s pushed back this plasma seams to float and sits tight to the surface. Shown here is a 50” but this mount is a dual arm allows it to hold up to 103” plasma.
Your family room is the first place people see and the most used room in the house the equipment for your plasma or LCD can be hidden from site making this a clean look. We will need a basic control system, to do this we use IR (infra red) emitters and a small surface mount IR receiver, this send the IR signals from your remote to the closet or AV rack housing your equipment, like DVD, CD, Satellite or cable box, and any AV switchers like AVR’s (audio video receiver) add a universal remote and voila`! as my mom says “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”
