If you want the highest quality results out of your home cinema Swansea system, and we’re sure you do, you shouldn’t just slap a projector onto any old room and expect greatness. There’s a subtle art to a good projector room, and we have the knowledge and advice to help you get the best experience out of your projected multimedia set-up.
It’s extremely important to have as much control over the lighting in your projector room as possible. The more light leakage you have, the more washed-out your image will be. The darker your room is, the clearer and more vivid the picture quality becomes. It’s not always possible to completely seal the room from light, but do the best you can. Windows should be covered by blinds or curtains, and ideally, doors will shut out light without leaking any underneath. If there are unavoidable sources of light, this can be compensated by selecting the right type of projector screen. We can advise you on lighting options and the best screen choice for your situation.
The placement of your projector is an important element in a home entertainment system. Naturally, you’ll want your projector to be unobtrusive and out of the way. When placed poorly, projectors can be a real eyesore. Projector Installation Swansea can help you avoid that while making sure your system still has complete functionality. Projectors can be mounted on the wall or ceiling depending on the layout of your room. They can also be placed on top of a surface such as a table, though this is usually an inelegant solution and without a fixed mount, the projector could be easily jarred. The device can also be placed either in front of or behind the screen. Depending on the positioning, the projected image will have to be calibrated to match, which is a service we can provide for you.
Though it’s important to mount your projector effectively when it comes to setting up your home entertainment room, the screen is even more important – after all, the screen is where you’ll be looking while enjoying your home entertainment! The first factor is your choice of screen, the major options being the retractable or fixed frame. Retractable provide major advantages in terms of space, so many home cinema enthusiasts opt for retractable screens so that they can be hidden when not in use. However, if you’ve got the space for it, a fixed frame tends to provide better viewing experiences. The choice is yours, and the projector fitter Swansea team are ready to help you realise the best home cinema system for your specific room.
One more important factor is the relative position of the projector and the screen. The “throw distance” refers to the distance between the projector and the screen. Exact throw distances depend on the specific model of your projector. As you can imagine, the closer your projector is to the screen, the smaller the image is, and the farther it is, the bigger. This means that to match your projected image to the size of your screen, the distance between the screen and projector lens must be precisely calculated. This can be tricky and involves some math, but at Projector Installation Swansea we’ve seen it all and are ready to help you today.
