The Best Seat In The House

A home theater should feel like a special destination in your house—the one place you can retreat for a couple of hours to escape from reality and be transported into another world. The place you like to visit frequently with friends and family to enjoy the latest blockbuster releases—but without walking out with a backache from sitting in a poorly constructed seat.

Home Theater Design - 3 Essential Ingredients

"Are you in the process of planning a home theater? Possibly you are well into the design or even already have some construction underway. Or, you may have only recently started to consider the possibility. In any case, you have likely been overwhelmed with copious, confusing and often misleading information on just exactly what creates a great home theater experience. To make sense of it all, it is a good idea to step back and consider what is possible, and what is essential to attain the results you desire. This article will consider three key ingredients of proper home theater design.

To be clear by what is meant by the term "home theater" in this article, we are referring to a room dedicated and optimized for movie, music, TV, and increasingly, video gaming. Other synonyms home technology professionals may use interchangeable for the term "home theater" are "home cinema" and private "screening room". What we are not referring to here are dual-purpose rooms that may double as the Living Room, Great Room, etc, that are open to other rooms in the home and that are not able to be optimized for high-performance audio and video. In home technology professional speak, these dual-purpose, more casual rooms are called "media rooms".

Home Theater vs. Media Room - What's the Difference?

Nomenclature is a challenge when it comes to home technology. We struggle with terms that resonate with homeowners. From the “AV guy" to system integrators to custom installers to technology designers to low-voltage contractors, the home technology industry seems to have an identity crisis, even though all those terms mean essentially the same thing to an insider. The same goes for the terms that we use to define rooms in the home, which brings us to the topic du jour: What is the difference between a media room and a home theater?

Most homeowners do not know or even care about the difference.

You will hear them referring to their dedicated home theater space as a media room and vice versa. For architects, interior designers, builders, lighting designers, and other contractors, however, these distinctions can be important in defining your vision and communicating with each other. In other words, it’s good to know the difference between the two.

How to Expand the Limits of Your Home Theater With OpusCube

ATAUAU_January_Blog_Home_Theater_Installation_Atlanta_GA_PHOTO_MAIN_623ec25f0afb78d136173043c8dd5b48

Recently Opus Brilliance released the OpusCube, a fine-pixel LED video wall ideal for commercial and home theater applications. It repurposes the same technology used in supersized screens like you’d see at sports stadiums to help expand the reach of residential displays.

The OpusCube is a state-of-the-art screen you can configure to meet any size, without sacrificing clarity or brightness. This modular video wall combines panels that automatically adjust to be the same color age and brightness as current panels to create one uniform image.

In this blog, we go a bit more in-depth into why OpusCube and similar video walls could make projectors obsolete in home theater installations in Atlanta, GA and throughout the country.

Size

The number one benefit of the OpusCube is the ability to customize it to any size. Many traditional flat screens don’t go beyond 80 inches, and even then they’re exorbitantly priced. Which is why many homes opt for projector-and-screen installations. The OpusCube eliminates those limitations. As long as the room allows it, you can go as big as you want without having to sacrifice a big chunk of your budget. It's easy to add and remove the magnetized panels as needed to create the ideal configuration.
