All too often, home theater marketing focuses on how large-screen projectors, surround sound, controllable lighting, and plush theater seating recreates a movie-watching experience comparable to that of going to the movies. And that’s all true, but it doesn’t tell the whole story.
Today, more and more homeowners are experimenting with flexible design, new technologies, and advanced home theater systems that can support a range of content sources — not just movies. Keep reading to learn about other types of entertainment you can enjoy in your Bergen County, NJ home cinema.
Connect your home theater system to a video game console to enjoy an immersive gaming experience. Modern video games rack up incredibly high production values to produce games with stunning visuals, fluid movement sequences, and well-crafted stories. Now imagine slaying a dragon, zooming down city streets in a car chase, and exploring a post-apocalyptic world on the big screen with surround sound.
If you have a 4K projector screen in your theater, the sheer size of the projected image will take your gameplay to the next level. If you have a 4K HDR large-screen TV, you’ll be able to enjoy stunning visual experiences with incredible detail, rich contrast, and vivid color. The PS4-Pro, PS5, and Microsoft Xbox consoles support 4K resolution and HDR formatting. And so do multiple video games, including Madden NFL 21, NBA 2k21, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Red Dead Redemption 2.
One popular trend in modern home theaters is to include multiple screens. A multi-screen solution is a fantastic approach if you’re interested in watching sports in your home cinema. Instead of switching back and forth between two or three games (and inevitably missing parts of each), project each game on its own screen during watch parties. Large, flat-screen TVs and 100-inch and larger projector screens will provide a comfortable viewing experience to catch every detail.
Do you want multiple screens without the clutter? Hidden technology like ceiling mounts or artwork frames will help you conceal displays when they aren’t in use.
Perhaps you prefer watching engrossing, multi-season TV shows over movies. You’re in luck — there’s never been a better time to indulge in a binge-worthy show. To attract and keep more viewers, streaming giants like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and Disney+ are shelling out the big bucks to produce high-quality original content. That means more shows and documentaries than ever are available for you to watch in your theater.
Streaming platforms like Amazon Prime, Disney+, Hulu, and Netflix offer hundreds of titles with native 4K resolution, setting you up to achieve a high-quality viewing experience on a large 4K projector screen. If you have a 4K HDR TV in your theater, some streaming platforms also support HDR. Most original shows streaming on Amazon Prime, Disney+, and Netflix are shot with HDR formatting.
