Here’s What You Need For An Innovative Home Theater

Your Theater’s Design Can Provide A Complete Viewing Experience

Imagine having a custom theater in your home, one that’s designed to fit your personality and operates using the best technology on the market.

At iHummingbird, we can create a home theater design tailored to your Delray Beach, Florida property.

We include the best home theater products to give your private cinema an innovative and complete viewing experience.

Below, we’ll share some of those technologies that can instantly upgrade your home theater.

Dolby Atmos Immersive Sound

Forget traditional surround sound. If your home theater has a Dolby Atmos speaker configuration, you’ll experience pure, immersive audio.

A Dolby Atmos system consists of a traditional surround sound setup – with speakers in front, to the center, above, and behind you – and one powered subwoofer.

What separates Dolby Atmos from other surround sound options, though, is its use of audio objects. It separates each piece of audio and sends it to the exact speaker that makes sense for the sound. So if a plane is flying overhead on the screen, for example, the sound effects of the plane come through the ceiling speakers, not the wall speakers. The system reproduces as many as 128 audio objects simultaneously so that sound comes from every angle in your home theater, giving you a truly immersive sound experience.

Of course, you’ll also need an audio-video receiver that is Dolby Atmos-compatible and high-fidelity speakers that will play only the best sound.

We can help you choose an A/V receiver perfect for your home theater design. We recommend using Sonance for your speaker needs.

4K Projection or OLED TV

You’ll either want a projection screen or a massive wide-screen TV for your viewing needs.

To get the best quality video in your large private cinema, we recommend using a 4K-native projector that will show your content in a resolution that has four times as many pixels as a traditional 1080p HD picture.

If your home theater will be in a room where a TV is a better fit than a projection screen, consider a 4K OLED television.

You’ll get the 4K-picture quality that a high-end projector will provide, but you also will be able to watch that content on a screen that offers true blacks, other vibrant colors and stunning yet clear contrast.

You’ll immediately be able to tell the difference compared to a standard viewing experience.

Custom Lighting Control

Your theater’s lighting is one of those subtle things that often gets overlooked in a home theater design, but can have an impact on the overall experience. With custom lighting control in your home theater, you can ensure the lighting is always the perfect brightness for any activity.

We recommend a Lutron lighting system for your private cinema – the entire room is connected to a smart home control system that manages the lights for you.

For example, you can dim all of your theater’s lights with the press of a single button in preparation for a movie. Or, if you want to play video games in more of a multipurpose media room setting, lights near your screen can turn off while your seating area stays illuminated.

You also can have path lighting in your home theater so that even when the lights are off, guests who might want more popcorn won’t have to disturb anyone else watching the action.

Control System

If you want a genuinely innovative home theater, forget about turning on each device separately – from your lights to your A/V receiver to your projector and even your Blu-ray player.

Our team can merge all of your private cinema’s separate devices onto one control system that you ultimately can manage from the convenience of an in-wall keypad or a smartphone or tablet.

You can press a preset “movie” command, and all of your A/V equipment will turn on, your lights will dim, and the screen will display the list of available media to watch – either through your digital media library or streaming services.
