For the Best Picture

First, it’s important to choose a screen size that creates the most memorable viewing experience for you, your family, and your guests. If you're interested in a large movie screen, a Sony 4K UHD projector is a fantastic choice for a flexible, high-quality picture. Space your seating back far enough from the viewing screen so everyone can have a comfortable view.

We're often asked about ambient light and its impact on picture quality. If you're using a projector, ambient light can impact visual clarity, especially during darkened scenes. If you have windows or an external source of ambient light, install motorized shading to assist in darkening the room during movie time.

For the Best Sound

Which sound system best meets the needs of your space? Surround sound is an excellent option for creating an immersive sound experience. The impact of surround sound on movie enjoyment is priceless.

Another high-quality sound option to consider is a Dolby Atmos 3D sound experience. With this type of sound system, the soundtrack in the movie is created differently to make you feel more real-life sound effects. Dolby is the standard in movie theaters and is now available for you to consider adding to your home theater experience.

For the Best Experience

We love the convenience and value of including smart home automation in a home theater installation. Controlling all of the features of your home theater from one remote or app is priceless and eliminates the worry of a missing remote. In addition, we can help you program the control to manage AV, lighting, shades, or other smart features.

Complete your installation by considering how lighting can make movie night more memorable. The dimming of the lights as the movie starts is a classic movie theater experience you can replicate at home. Then, mix and match lighting to create additional dramatic effects: uplights, downlights, and twinkle lights are all ways you can make your movie nights special.
