The best home theater system also needs the perfect display. The two obvious choices are home theater projector and HDTV. A lot depends on your needs and budget, and you can always consider talking to a professional home theater installation service for help. In this post, we are discussing the pros and cons, so that you can decide between installing a projector or HDTV.
The basics of HDTV
The biggest advantage of a high-definition television, or HDTV, is performance under any lighting condition. For enjoying a movie on a projector, you need to have enough darkness in the room, which is not the case of HDTV. The second advantage is easy installation. Even the smart TVs are super easy to install and use. As far as picture quality is concerned, you can expect the best from new TVs, especially the new-age 4k or 8k models.
On the flip side, when it comes to projecting on a large screen, HDTVs don’t offer as much scope as a projector. In darker rooms, HDTVs can impact your eyes, especially with extensive use.
The basics of projectors
Many homeowners prefer a projector for the display size alone. When you want to replicate the experience of a theatre at home, nothing really beats the projector. Contrary to popular belief, projectors can have good image quality and don’t cause as much strain to the eyes. For many homes where space is a matter of constraint, projectors are a better option.
In terms of disadvantages, projectors need a certain kind of lighting, especially if you want the best picture quality. You may want to go for automated blinds that cover most of exterior lights to enjoy the projector experience better. People also often go for smart lights for rooms that have a projector. Projectors also need period maintenance and replacement of bulbs, so you may have to spend a tad more than the upfront costs.
No matter whether you select a projector or an HDTV, find an installation company that can get the home theatre system in action, without any extra effort or investment. Their services come for a cost, for sure, but that money is worth paying, because they can help in keeping your budget in check and avoiding expensive mistakes. You can also ask them for product advice and how to select a sound system to have the best screen experience at home.
