With everyone wanting to watch movies in their own homes it has become necessary to buy the few pieces of specialized equipment for this purpose. One of the most important aspects of having a home movie theatre is to select a room or area in the house that is suitable for the purpose of fixing the relevant equipment and to make it ready for the audience to sit and watch with comfort and to a certain degree enjoy the atmosphere of a real cinema hall.
Before running to the electronic store to place an order for the items you need, its advisable to carry out some research to find out what equipment are required and also where they can be purchased at cheap rates. There are many online stores from which you can get great deals for such equipment and therefore its worthwhile checking those places before buying the items. The most important piece of equipment in this regard will be the Projector that can be either placed on a table or mounted on the wall or ceiling, which ever you think is more suitable.
Most home theatre users prefer the LCD projector which provides wide screen images and are designed to operate in rooms with dimmed lights for better quality of picture. You should however not go in for a typical home theatre projector that generates a large picture which is not suitable for a small area in a home. The next item you have consider is the projection screen which can either be a front or rear and either curved or flat while a retractable screen will provide you the option of rolling it up when not in use. This is ideal for a small room and also to keep it from being damaged or knocked about especially if there are kids in the house. Keep in mind that curved screens are usually used in cinemas and the better option is to go for a flat wide screen with an off white or grey surface.
Projector accessories also play a major role when setting up a home theatre with mounts, lamps, lenses and remotes being the most bought accessories by users. You have to be doubly sure of the projector mounts you install to keep your projector secured and out of harms way and the type of project mount you buy will depend on where you fix the projector. If it’s going to be placed on a table, there will be no mounting. But if the projector is to be ceiling or wall mounted, it’s best to get the services of an experienced technician to attend to this because you won’t want your projector to come undone and come crashing down.
Thos who go for an LCD projector will have all the accessories that come with it and these include the mounts, lamps, cables, remote, screens and even cases to store the projector when not in use or to take with you when on the move. While you don’t have to buy all these projector accessories at once, they will no doubt enhance your movie experience to a great deal and therefore it’s a good idea to buy at least some of them later on.
