“I’m delighted to have found a source of expertise for electronic services that is a refreshing alternative to the general incompetence of the larger cable companies.” Tim G.
The term “media room” might as well be used in place of “living room,” since most modern living rooms are outfitted with large flat-screen televisions, surround sound systems, and cozy seating —the three main characteristics of a media room. The real problem is when people use “media room” and “home theater” interchangeably. Sure, both spaces provide great movie-watching experiences, but the equipment, design, and layout used in a media room and home theater are quite different. The differences between a media room and home theater include:
Design and Layout
The first difference you will notice between a media room and home theater is each room’s design and layout. A media room is for more than just watching movies, so furniture pieces are arranged to accommodate other activities. Home theater seating is generally arranged in rows facing forward to replicate a movie theater. Home theaters are also usually much darker to help the movie-watching experience.
Audio and Visual Equipment
There is also a big difference in the A/V equipment used in media rooms and home theaters. While media rooms typically feature high-end flat screen televisions and surround sound systems, they pale in comparison to the A/V technology used inside a home theater. After all, the goal of a home theater is to recreate the theater experience at home, so these rooms typically use HD projectors and theater-quality sound systems.
While media rooms can be put together with minimal knowledge of how audio visual components work, a home theater installation is serious business. If you want a home theater that will rival your local big-screen cinema, hire a home theater installation company in New Orleans to install all of the components you need. A home theater installer can also make sure that all of the wires are hidden for a clean and professional look.
