If you’re going to invest in home cinema technology then you’ll want to get the most out of it and be able to create the perfect user experience. When you go to the cinema you expect dimmed lights, straight backed seating, a central screen and impressive surround sound of the highest quality.
Thanks to modern home cinema technology you can now replicate the experience from the comfort of your own home.
Here are a few tips for creating the ultimate home cinema experience.
The ideal room should be quiet and free from distractions. If you have a dedicated room that can be closed off from the rest of the house, consider soundproofing it. A mixture of hard and soft surfaces help to balance out the sound, so your room shouldn’t be empty. Feel free to add furnishings and furniture.
Ideally your screen should always be in shadow. Don’t place it opposite windows where sun glare will ruin the picture. Your room doesn’t need to be completely blacked out, just dim. Cover the windows with blinds and install light dimmers for the best viewing experience.
As a general rule, the ‘sweet spot’ distance for optimum viewing should be worked out by multiplying the screen size of your TV by 1.5–2.5. Your screen should be positioned at eye level with a viewing angle of 40 degrees.
For the ultimate 3D experience, don’t slouch on the sofa but choose stiff backed seats. If you have a dedicated room consider installing tiered, cinema-styled seats.
For full surround sound you need speakers positioned in the centre, right, left and rear of the room. You also need a subwoofer to improve the bass quality.
Now you’re all set up, grab the popcorn, turn down the lights and enjoy! For professional installation, contact Midland Digital today.
