Everybody wants to maximize the screen in their space; they want to have the biggest screen in that area, and they want it to look amazing and immersive. However, there are some things that you need to go over before you select your ideal home theater room screen, such as the format and the ambient light in the space. And yes, size is important, but we look at getting you the right size for the room instead of the biggest display available. Keep reading to take a look at how you can maximize your theater viewing experience in your Orange County, CA home.
When selecting the screen size, you need to consider the formats available. Typically, there are two commonly available formats for home theaters – 16:9 and 2:35. 16:9 Is considered the normal TV format which is used for watching TV such as a live sporting event, news, or even your favorite TV channel. On the other hand, cinemas follow a 2:35 format, which is also known as ultra-wide screen, anamorphic, or cinemascope. This cinematic format is wider, and it is ideal for watching movies as you can get a really immersive experience with this screen and experience even the smallest details that the director intended you to see even on the peripheral of the screen.
When selecting a format, it all comes down to personal preference. For example, if you're creating a home theater mainly for watching movies, you should opt for the 2:35 format; if you're going to be watching more sporting events in your home theater, the 16:9 format would be better suited for your needs. Additionally, you need to consider your wall size as the height or width of your wall can make one format better suited than the other due to a restriction of the dimensions.
When selecting a projector or screen, you need to consider the brightness of the projector beam along with the reflectiveness of the screen. There is some math involved in determining the right brightness level to ensure you have an immersive viewing experience, so it would be best to involve professionals for this stage. The bottom line of optimizing brightness is that the professional should work on maximizing the light that's coming from the projector and being reflected back to the viewers in their seated position.
