How Ultra-High-Definition TVs, Surround Sound, and Lighting Create the Perfect Cinematic Space

Instead of simply watching a movie in your living room, make it a cinematic experience! A home theater immerses you in the sights and sounds of movies and your favorite TV shows. You’re not simply an observer when you turn on the big screen and your surround-sound system; you actually feel like you’re there – in the movies, at the game, or front and center with the actors.

But how do you achieve this in your Marin County, CA, home? Certainly, an average TV and a soundbar won’t do it. You need a state-of-the-art system that provides the same experience (if not better) than you get at the movie. In this blog, we’ll discuss the two must-have components you need for an outstanding home theater system.

Seeing Is Believing

Imagine putting a 48” HD TV in your home theater. It may have been a great idea in the late 1990s, but now, you probably don’t even have one in your home. The latest 4K TVs (or even 8K TVs) are ultra-high definition. And the best TVs use organic lighting-emitting diodes (OLEDs), a technology that dramatically improves image quality, color and contrast, and the overall viewing experience.

Watch a movie on an 8K TV or 4K ultra-high-definition OLED TV, and you’ll see things you’ve never seen before. Scene elements and colors that you didn’t notice before come to life on an OLED TV. In addition, today’s 4K projectors are nothing like those of yesteryear. The technology for home theater systems has improved so much that the display looks like a high-end TV, with perfect color and clarity from one end of the screen to the next.

 

3D Audio That Surrounds You

Quality audio is absolutely essential when watching a movie. In fact, online streaming services know it too! If you’ve ever had problems streaming a video, you probably notice that the video goes “fuzzy” before the sound cuts out. That’s intentional. It’s because, without sound, you completely miss out on the experience. Note: If you are having trouble with connectivity, such as online streaming, Summit Technology Group provides Wi-Fi and home networking to ensure lightning-fast internet.

Surround sound creates a 3D environment for your ears. It makes you feel like you’re a part of the show. If there’s an earthquake in the movie, you’ll feel the rumble all around you. When a plane flies overhead, your ceiling speakers make it sound realistic. Surround sound comes in many configurations to suit your needs and the size of your home theater. A robust and properly configured system, along with acoustic paneling, transforms your space into an amazing soundstage for movies, as well as music listening.

 

But Wait! There’s More!

Why stop at two technologies? There are more ways to create a custom home theater system that excites all your senses: lighting control, luxury seating, theater décor, and smart home control. Let Summit Technology Group be your go-to source for custom theater design and installation.
