Just like commercial cinemas, private home theaters require specific lighting levels that don’t wash out the projector. However, darkness during the movie doesn’t mean that you can’t use lighting as neat accessories and décor for your theater. Many private theaters opt to include unique lighting such as a star ceiling or decorative wall sconces—the important thing is that the lighting you choose is strategically placed to point light away from the screen or automatically darken before the movie starts.
Skimping on your projector is a sure-fire way of getting a low-quality, unappealing visual experience. Choose a projector that has native 4K resolution, and pay attention to the maximum display resolution to ensure that the projector can handle your screen size. If you want a high-end, reliable projector that will continue to provide a crisp and vibrant picture for years to come, choose Sony. Their projectors use the latest in home theater technology to bring movies to life with colorful, clear visuals.
When it comes to your theater screen, two factors are important to consider: size and material.
