The Cinema Experience Will Always Be Better at Home
The “HT” in GHT Group stands for home theater, and it’s been part of our company’s DNA for over 30 years. We have always been huge proponents that the cinema experience is better at home, and we have been proving it by building some of the finest custom home theaters in the Buckhead and Metro Atlanta areas for decades.
The many effects of the current pandemic have made the proposition for a custom home theater stronger than ever. Many commercial theaters have shut down or offer severely limited capacity. As a result, first-run movies are having a very short theater run or simultaneously appearing on streaming platforms at home. Beyond film, the plethora of options for high-quality video entertainment at home seems to expand daily. Given that, why not take the plunge and build your own custom home theater, one that supremely fits you and your family? Explore three compelling reasons below.
Sony’s VPL-VW295ES Ushers In Affordable, High-Performance 4K Projection
Why do you love your home cinema? Is it the luxury of having a huge screen at home, or the lack of sticky floors and overpriced concessions? Most likely you would rank both of those benefits highly. There’s nothing like being able to settle in to watch a movie or a show in your very own space with incredible sight and sound, with all the comforts of home.
If you already have a custom home theater, you may be lacking one thing. You might have a 1080P HD projector, but you’d really like to upgrade to 4K to take advantage of the new 4K streaming shows on Netflix and Ultra HD Blu-ray movies, with their much higher contrast and detail. Perhaps you have also been wondering why 4K flat-panel TVs are now very affordable, but 4K projectors prices have stayed in the stratosphere. The answer to the pricing is that projectors don’t sell in nearly the same volumes as TVs, so the cost curve of new technology diminishes more slowly for projectors.
If you’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on a 4K projector to complete your theater, or you were waiting for an affordable 4K model to build a new one, we have good news for you. As a longtime Sony Diamond dealer, we partner with Sony for projectors because of their leadership in projection technology. In 2003, they were the first to introduce a full HD projector for home use. In 2011, they launched the first 4K projector for home use. And now, with the VPL-VW295ES, they are introducing a truly affordable 4K home theater projector that doesn’t skimp on features or performance.

Explore The Possibilities of Adding a Custom Home Theater
GHT Group has been building custom home theaters and media rooms in the Alpharetta and Atlanta areas since our inception in 1989. Home theaters are in our name for a reason; it’s the bread and butter of our business.
But if you think a custom theater or media room is only for the very well-heeled, you might be in for a pleasant surprise. Today’s equipment and technology can accommodate a wide range of media use and room types. Sure, you can still get the full home cinema experience with the movie décor, lounge chairs, soundproofing, and the best equipment, but you don’t need to go that route if that doesn’t fit your lifestyle.
Let’s explore some of the latest trends in custom theaters and media rooms.
