What does a home theater installation include?
Your home theater can be as straightforward or as sophisticated as you like. Whether it’s just a big screen and surround sound speakers or a fully automated media room setup, it’s all about creating the right atmosphere to feel like you’re actually at the movies (without leaving the comfort of your own home).
Here are some of the most common home theater services:
Bigger isn’t always better when choosing your home theater screen, as it’s crucial to select the best size for the space. Most projectors are mounted on the ceiling to get them out of the way and provide that authentic cinema experience. You can choose to have a mobile or motorized screen that can be tucked away when it isn’t in use, or even use a blank wall in your media room. Projectors are the perfect option for large spaces and more people, but you’ll need to block out natural light for optimum viewing.
TV wall mounting
You may choose a high-definition tv in your home theater for a more straightforward setup or due to light and space constraints. Your tv installer will mount the tv on a wall to maximize the space available in the room, plus you won’t need cabinets or shelving. They’ll usually use existing power points but let you know if you need additional electrical work to power all components or an extra antenna point installed. Your wall mounting installer will consider natural light sources and glare when positioning your tv and advise you on the best size for the space to get the most out of your viewing experience. Finally, they’ll conceal all the cables behind walls or conduits, so your screen is the main focus.
Speaker and sound installation
You can recreate the cinema experience by strategically placing soundbars, speakers, and amplifiers around your media room for surround sound. A central speaker that provides most of the sound will be installed first, and then additional speakers and amplifiers are placed around the room for immersive sound. Your audio-visual expert will consider room acoustics and seat positioning to ensure all viewers get an optimal sound experience; the way movies are intended.
Home theater automation
Home theater automation involves the seamless integration of all technology in your media room to make watching a movie as easy as possible. Integrated automation means you can control all aspects with the press of a button, including your Foxtel and Netflix access. A perfect home theater setup means you only need one controller to operate your projector, choose your streaming or viewing option, turn off lights, and adjust the room temperature to create the right atmosphere. Your home theater installer will demonstrate how it all works, so you’ll be streaming your favorite movies in no time.
