Which Video Display Is Best For You?
Discover whether a television or a projector is the right fit for your Amherst project
Streaming is at an all-time high as we are spending more time at home, and you are likely enjoying many movie and TV show marathons. That being said, are you completely satisfied with your home entertainment setup? Now is the perfect time to upgrade your home media display to something your family will enjoy for years to come. Read our latest blog to learn whether a television or a projector is a better fit for your home audio video installation in Amherst, NY.
Televisions have become more affordable in the last several years. You can easily find a high-quality 4K TV that is around 85 inches for an affordable price. They are easy to install and require little maintenance. They are also much brighter than projectors.
The dimmer the screen is, the darker the room needs to be for the picture to be visible. Most projectors require near to complete darkness to function. This makes them a good fit for a dedicated home theater room, but if you are looking to install an audio video system in your living room with lots of windows, a television would be a better choice. A projector requires blackout curtains to function in a room with windows, while a TV can get by with regular shades.
Projectors allow you to recreate the cinema experience in the comfort of your own home. If you are looking for a display over 85 inches, a projector is the best choice. You can find projector screens up to 130 inches that are reasonably affordable. Projectors give you a truly exceptional movie experience by making the picture look more natural and immersive.
Televisions are not made for watching movies, while projectors are specifically designed to work in the widescreen format that films are shot in. They are the perfect fit for a dedicated home theater room.
While home theater equipment can be clunky, there are several ways to minimize the effect it has on your décor. Projector screens can be hidden in a ceiling pocket or decorative wall mount. To put the screen away, simply press a button, and your home automation system will retract it. You can hide your projector, which needs to be 10 to 20 feet back, behind a false wall or within a ceiling niche.
