Is it Time to Ditch the 4K TV in Your Home Theater?
Rethinking the Projector in the Age of the Flat-Panel
Chances are, you own a 4K Ultra HD TV.
Chances are, you love it.
And chances are, you don’t want to ditch it in favor of an old-fashioned movie projector.
But if you’re interested in a fully immersive video display in your New York City, NY property, you may just want to rethink that position.
In this blog, we’ll explore why projector and screen combinations are a cornerstone of home theater design.

Go Big or Go Home
When it comes to TV displays, bigger is better right?
Assuming you have the space, a massive 60 to 80-inch screen is a great way to enjoy your favorite movies and TV shows.
But the larger the screen, the heavier the unit. And that can give rise to all sorts of problems.
A much easier solution is to use a projector. Easily capable of images of 120-inches or higher, a projector takes up less space than a traditional TV, and it’s far less heavy. It’s a great way to enjoy the largest possible image that’s comfortable to watch.
Enjoy High Contrast Images
One common complaint about projectors is that they don’t have enough contrast.
That means the blacks – like shadows and other dark colors in the image – don’t show up as well when compared to modern 4K TV displays.
But LCD projectors (which use essentially the same technology as most modern TVs) are capable of extremely high-contrast images.
Pair that with a high-contrast screen and you can enjoy your content in just about anything short of direct sunlight.
A high-contrast screen is one that rejects all light not shown directly in front of it. They usually appear in black or dark gray rather than the traditional white.
If you’re looking for a smart way to enjoy a sharper projection image, rear-projection may be the way to go.
Utilizing a screen that filters light, the projector sits behind it and fires forward. The image is brighter, sharper and more detailed.
Rear-projection is perfect for high-light environments with a lot of space. For instance, outdoor spaces like around the pool or in the backyard.
