When designing a home theatre, we should think about every detail carefully. We should know that a system cannot stand on its own, but integrated with the devices used. The system and devices certainly need a room which meets certain criteria. Well, today we share the steps in choosing and placing devices so that your home theater can have the best performance.
Choose a screen which you really wish. To set up the home theater, you should have a screen of 28 inch at minimum. Here are four types of the monitor screen you may choose:
- CRT (cathode ray tube). The CRT uses an evacuated glass envelope which is large, deep (i.e. long from front screen face to rear end), fairly heavy, and relatively fragile. The advantage you can get from this kind of screen is that there are many display options with good quality, while the disadvantage is that the presence of this conventional TV usually disturbs interior room design. The larger the screen, the more space it needs.
- LCD (Liquid-crystal-display). It is a flat panel display, electronic visual display, or video display that uses the light modulating properties of liquid crystals. The advantage you can get is that compared to CRT it is lighter and thinner which means easy to hang on the wall. It is a good device that can deliver the best image quality and great performance.
- PDP (plasma display panel). It is a type of flat panel display to large TV displays of 30 inches or larger. It is called plasma because the technology utilizes small cells containing fluorescent lamps.
- Projector. You can certainly watch an image display of 8 feet using this device. Switch the light off and here comes a wide screen on your wall.
Determine the size of the screen you want. The bigger screen used, the better cinema atmosphere you can get. We should also consider the size of the screen with the size of the room, so that we will not be too close or too far from the screen. Keep in mind the larger the screen size, the more uncomfortable it is when used in a small room.
Place your equipment properly. No matter how much it costs, if you do not put the device in the correct position, then the performance will be disappointing. The seat should be placed in the right position, so that we can enjoy the optimal performance of the screen display.
