Home Theater Options Ideal for 4K Movies
Movie quality continues to improve with each new generation. Long gone are the days of the fuzzy VHS tape and the small television screen. Today, the norm is 4K movies, displayed on 4K televisions with crystal clear quality. If you want to have the best quality options for your home theater, then consider specific products catered to 4K movies.
Learn some of the best ways to watch 4K movies with the help of multiple resources. As you plan out home theater upgrades, each option can make a big difference on your movie-viewing experience.
4K UHD Television
The television you choose will make the biggest difference on 4K quality. You want a large television with 4K quality and ultra-HD (UHD) features. The ideal size of television for your home theater depends on how far away your seats are from your screen. If your seats were four to ten feet away from your screen, you would want to purchase a television that is at least 50 inches to achieve a big-screen movie feel.
As you browse the specs for a TV, check for HDR (high-dynamic range) features. HDR adds a lot of color depth and visual flair to the movies you watch. When movies often have HDR features built in, you will notice a difference in their quality compared to standard movies.
4K Disc Players
Even with so many streaming options, the best consistent quality for 4K movies comes directly from discs. You do not need to worry about download streams, internet connections, or buffered data. Even with a clear connection, the quality on a 4K disc is often better. Ideally, you will want to purchase a 4K disc player for your home theater.
With high-speed 4K HDMI cables, disc players will offer the best quality. Often, a 4K movie purchase will also include a digital copy, giving you extra options for watching the movie on the go or in another room if needed. Home theater experts can also install a shelf or built-in shelves to store your 4K movie collection.
Three-Dimensional Surround Sound
While visuals are important, 4K movies also feature advanced surround sound known as three-dimensional sound. The advanced technology offers three-dimensional sound so music, dialogue, and sound effects are all immersed and specifically projected through home theater speakers.
The three-dimensional sound is not a specific product, but a feature found in numerous surround sound systems and through companies like Dolby. Consider soundbar installations with advanced sound or multi-speaker systems installed throughout the whole home theater. This high-quality sound is also compatible with many music services.
Direct LAN Internet Connections
In cases where you do need to connect to streaming services, consider a direct LAN cable connection for your home streaming products. If your TV does not feature a direct LAN cable option, then look for 4K disc players or gaming consoles with the 4K options built into the design.
A LAN connection will offer more stables streams than a Wi-Fi connection. You do not need to worry about interference and can enjoy streaming 4K content without extra buffering. The direct cables can handle more data.
You may even install an internet router right in your home theater. Contractors can build a media closet with all of the connections and LAN cables so your home theater is not a cluttered mess.
Blackout Curtains and Shades
If you want to watch crisp and clear 4K movies, the last thing you want to worry about is the sun ruining the experience. Contractors can help with the installation of blackout curtains or shades for a home theater. The blackout shades will completely cover up any natural light so the visuals of a TV are not impacted.
Consider the use of automated shades, so you can use smart speaker voice controls to close the shades as you settle down to watch a movie.
