3D Home Entertainment Systems

Technology keeps moving forward each day. Their hunger for innovation and advancement is no different from an infant’s need to be fed every few hours. The latest addition that technology has created and has presented for us to use is the 3D Home Entertainment systems. These are composed of a number of appliances that has given a new feature to give better entertainment. This kind of technology has been applied by a number of world-renowned manufacturers.

3D or 3-Dimensional imaging is the underlying feature to this new approach in entertainment media. While most people are aware of this concept, this was only available in cinemas for specific film features. These days, we can have this kind of experience right in the comforts of our own homes. There are four basic items that composes a 3D Home Entertainment setup. These would include the 3D enabled plasma or LCD television sets, blu-ray discs and blu-ray platforms or players and of course, the active shutter glasses. There are some manufacturers that also offer home 3D screen or movie projectors for a more cinematic appeal.

It is fun to watch a film in 3D. You will get the feeling and the impression that it is as if the things you see in the film are right within your grasp. It can give you that additional oomph factor in entertainment. However, you should remember that these would only be well appreciated with a pair of 3D glasses. Without these glasses, you would not even be able to appreciate the film as it is, as it may appear to be blurry or pixelized. If you are planning to get an entire 3D Home Entertainment system installed in your home, make sure that you take note of getting more than a single pair of these glasses – unless you are planning to enjoy this exclusively.

Home Entertainment System – The Advantages

If you have not gotten into the bandwagon yet, then you must have already found yourself wondering what exactly makes a home entertainment system so in demand right now. After all, if people really want a movie theater experience, shouldn’t they be going to an actual theater? Aren’t these mini-theaters little more than flashy but rather trivial upgrades to the regular TV and DVD players using a fancy audio video receiver when you could just be using a digital to analog TV converter box?

There are, in fact, a number of advantages in having your very own home theater. On a more technical level, the system does provide you with two of the things that have previously made the movie house superior in some respects to your living room. First of all, there is the sound system. Both theaters and a home entertainment system use surround sound, which literally refers to having the sound come from all around you-from your left, your right, and even from behind you. This provides an immersive experience that allows you to hear the soundtrack even more clearly, while also giving the sound effects some much needed directionality.

Naturally, the second technical advantage is the screen. Because both movie and home theaters provide a larger screen, you are not as easily distracted from the film, as you would have been if you were watching it in your 19-inch TV. Additionally, the pictures are also clearer and crisper, making the visuals more stunning.

Then again, why buy an entire home theater system when you could have all these features in the movie house?

The answer lies in two words: choice and privacy. Having your own mini-theater at home gives you the option of having a theater-quality movie experience exactly when you want it. Plus, the choice of what film to see also depends entirely on you. There are so many movie channels with a huge choice of great films in all different genres from old time classics to virtually up-to-the-minute blockbusters. The freedom to choose is not exactly an asset of your local theater, with its tightly scheduled screening of only the most recent flicks. Additionally, in your own home theater, you are not even limited to seeing only films. Ever considered seeing that championship game in high definition? With all those many different TV channels these days specializing in all the various categories of sports, news, documentaries, drama, movies and more there is always bound to be a program you can find to enjoy watching in the comfort of your home.

Privacy is one of the biggest advantages as well. Whether you are entertaining guests, enjoying a date with someone special, or simply treating yourself to an epic action movie, you can be assured that you will not be receiving any interruptions from the rude and noisy patrons from across the aisle.

While a home entertainment system may initially seem to be expensive, rest assured that you are going to make a good investment, whether or not you consider yourself a film buff.

Tips For Choosing a DVD Projector For Use in Your Home Entertainment System

A lot of people, when they set up their home entertainment systems, don’t even bother to consider buying a DVD projector. This is a big mistake. While this item will not always be the right choice, it certainly has its good uses. For example, did you know that the video picture quality of a DVD projector is very high in quality? Some people even prefer them over plasma screen TV’s.

One basic thing you will have to consider is where do you want to mount it? Some projectors can attach to the ceiling, while others will have to be rested on top of a table or some other object. I am of the mind that it is better to hang it on the ceiling because then it’s out of the way. No one is going to step on it or knock it off its surface. (Nor will they be able to spill anything on it!)

You will have to set a budget, too. If you are very serious about setting up a first rate home entertainment system then I would suggest setting aside about $500 for a DVD projector. You may very well be able to do better than this, but you certainly don’t want to get caught in the trap of buying one that will not give you a great viewing experience.

I would say that those are the two single most important factors to consider when buying a DVD projector. Issues of brand and model quality can be easily sorted out by reading some reviews or going into the store and trying it out for yourself.
