What’s Best, TV or Projector?
The ultimate viewing experience in your Rancho Santa Fe, California house starts with your home theater design. You want the best display with the highest quality. But that leaves the question for you – which is better: a flat-screen TV or a projector and screen combination? Read on to take a look at which option is best for creating the perfect atmosphere for your entertainment space.
If you are looking for that traditional theatrical appearance, a screen and projector combo truly completes the look. Not only will your guests feel like they are in an actual commercial theater environment, but the screens also have the matching aspect ratio. This ratio is not on most standard TVs, so using a screen will give you the best view of your media.
The same thing goes for a screen’s size. With a gigantic screen, and a projector filling every inch of it, you’ll feel like you’ve walked into the town cinema. To take up less space when not needed, or for easier use, screens have become much simpler to roll up and retract. Press a button and watch it ascend into the ceiling, along with your projector.
An issue some find with screens is washed out images if there’s ambient lighting. Of course, this can be remedied with light-rejecting screens or motorized blackout shades to prevent a screen from being useless during the day.
There is nothing quite like 4K Ultra HD technology, and on a smaller display of a TV, it’s a visual experience like no other. Anti-glare features allow you to place a TV anywhere in your home, regardless of the lighting situation, and installing one is easier than doing so for a projector and screen.
TVs also have the advantage of coming with various streaming services such as Hulu or Netflix, and other built-in apps, that are easily accessible and ready to watch. There are so many other features that you can incorporate into a TV that are either harder to come by or just don’t exist with a projector-screen duo.
A con to televisions is that since they produce their own lighting – hence their ability to be in bright spaces – your eyes can begin to hurt after long exposure to the screens. It is also a lot more costly to upgrade to larger sizes.
Of course, depending on your space and what particulars your room requires, either choice is a fine option for a quality entertainment atmosphere.
