It’s All About Versatile Entertainment Spaces

Home theaters were once a place to recreate the cinematic experience at home. While you may have watched TV in a living room, the theater was for something more memorable.

So how are home theater designers reimagining home cinemas to adjust to today’s trends? Let’s explore four ways the modern home theater is shaping up in 2023.

Step Up to Stunning Picture Quality with a Sony 4K OLED TV Step Up to Stunning Picture Quality with a Sony 4K OLED TV

You’ll Want Binge-Watch Everything

Sony is a legendary name in TV and consumer electronics, with a long list of innovations spanning almost every important technology in audio and video. One of those firsts was the OLED TV, which Sony introduced to the world in 2007. OLED is the acronym for Organic Light Emitting Diode, and backlighting is the main difference between this and LED technology. LED panels need backlighting, and OLED is self-lighting. 

OLED technology is known for super-thin panels, superb color reproduction, and wonderfully inky dark black levels, one of the most challenging things to get right in a TV panel. Interestingly, though Sony pioneered OLED, they only introduced mass production of OLED TVs a few years ago. But when they did, they did it right. If you're looking for a Sony 4K TV for your Destin, FL, media room, you should be looking at Sony’s latest Bravia XRA95K flagship OLED TV. Keep reading below to learn why.

Exploring Some Different Takes on the Home Theater

What do you think of when you hear the term “home theater?” Is it a windowless, darkened room with individual reclining chairs, a giant screen, and movie-themed decor? Or do you think of a room with a great audio and video system where you enjoy your entertainment? 

Many homes have media rooms as opposed to home theaters. The primary difference is that these spaces tend to be great places to enjoy media entertainment, but also serve other purposes. In truth, the line between media rooms and home cinemas is more blurred than ever. Why is that, and how might it impact the home theater design in your Santa Rosa Beach, FL, home? Keep reading!

It’s a Sony! And Here’s Why You Want It

As one of the world’s most recognizable consumer brands, Sony has a long and rich history of innovation. That innovation extended not only to the products but to the marketing campaigns themselves. In the 1980s, the company's catchphrase "It's a Sony" was the companion to their new logo and became a defining feature in their advertising. In that era, a Sony TV was cut above everything else on the market, and everybody wanted one. 

Sony has many more competitors now, and consumer audio and video equipment is a hotly contested market. However, Sony still manages to lead, innovate, and push the envelope in consumer and professional products. That leadership is still evident in the current Sony 4K projector line, making "It's a Sony" relevant today. Keep reading below to learn about three reasons Sony is still an outstanding choice for 4K projectors.

The Sony VPL-XW5000ES Belongs in Your Home Theater

While laser light source projectors have been around for some time, affordable is not an adjective that typically goes with laser. But lately, that’s changed, and if you’re looking for a new or upgraded high-quality projector that won’t break the bank, Sony’s got just the product - the VPL-XW5000ES.

Why would you want a laser light source for your home theater in Atlanta or Marietta, GA? It’s simple; laser light engines last far longer than lamp-based ones. These lasers can last up to 20,000 hours of use, which makes for a lot of movies and entertainment over many years. But there’s more to this wallet-friendly laser-based Sony 4K projector.

How to Choose Architectural Speakers for Your Home Theater How to Choose Architectural Speakers for Your Home Theater

Let’s Start Here

Are you thinking about a new or upgraded home theater? You are likely thinking about the speakers for it. The choices are endless, more than we could possibly cover in this post. But we’re going to get you started in the right direction. 

First, you have a choice of freestanding or architectural speakers. Architectural speakers are built into walls and ceilings. How do you choose one over the other? Mostly it comes down to aesthetics. Some people like the look of speakers, but some don’t want to see them at all. Some don’t mind the powerful look of a front speaker array (left, center, and right), but like the rest of the surround sound to be integrated into walls and ceilings. 

As a longtime home theater company, there is one myth we want to dispel here from the start. You can get the same performance level from architectural speakers as freestanding ones. If you think large, bulky speakers are the only way to get exceptional sound in a home cinema, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the amazing choices in architectural high fidelity speakers for theater – and even music, for that matter. Now that we have that out of the way let’s go deeper into how to choose architectural speakers for your Roswell, GA, home theater. 

What Do Home Theater Designers Do, Anyway? What Do Home Theater Designers Do, Anyway?

Who Needs a Home Theater Designer?

Do you need a home theater designer? You can likely cobble together a home theater; many DIY enthusiasts do just that. With no shortage of fast playback TikTok and YouTube videos to show you how to build your own theater in 20 minutes, it must be a snap.

Somehow, how-to videos notwithstanding, people still hire us to design and build home theaters. Of course, we're joking that you can build a home theater in 20 minutes, and neither can we, even though we've been at it for over 30 years. The truth is a real home theater is a complicated project. Just like building a home is a big project, a home theater is one too. People hire architects and builders to build a house in Cumming, GA, and people hire home theater designers – like GHT Group – to create home cinemas. 

So, what do home theater designers do? Keep reading below to find out the basics.

Here Are the Top Trends We’re Seeing in Media Rooms

Once upon a long time ago, there were three TV networks, movies were still on film and in theaters, and you could have as many channels of sound as you wanted as long as it was mono. Clearly, we’ve come a long way in entertainment since the days of a 25-inch living room TV with an antenna.

Today, we have more entertainment to watch and enjoy than we could consume in a lifetime. Thanks to ever-advancing technology, we can create an immersive entertainment experience in the comfort of any home living space. Of course, most people do have a home media room of a sort, from the perfectly functional to the wonderfully wild.
