Choosing a Home Theater Screen Size, Salt Lake City

THE RIGHT SIZE

There are a number of variables that can effect the screen size for your home theater such as room dimensions, or your choice in projector. Different projectors have maximum screen sizes. To find the best screen size for you space, multiply the desired screen size by 1.5 to find the optimum seating area (Screens are measured diagonally). This is not a perfect formula, but it will get you started. Don’t worry, TYM will help you find the best size for your project.

ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN

 

Anamorphic screens allow for the viewing of movies in true widescreen or CinemaScope™ (aspect ratio of 2:35:1). CinemaScope™ was developed to provide a more immersive experience. An anamorphic screen eliminates the letter boxing “black bars” that appear on the top and bottom with a standard 16:9 screen.

Acoustically Transparent Screen, Salt Lake City

ACOUSTICALLY TRANSPARENT SCREENS

 

An “acoustically transparent” screen is one that allows sound to pass through the screen’s surface. This allows the front surround sound speakers to be placed behind the screen at the same height and location as the action on screen – thus providing the most realistic audio experience. Acoustically transparent screens are used in commercial cinemas. Scroll down to watch a Vine of an acoustically transparent screen be installed.

ELECTRIC SCREENS

 

Do you want your screen to be fixed, or electric? Fixed screens are most often used in spaces dedicated for a home cinema. Electric screens (that roll up when not in use) are good for multi-purpose spaces like game rooms, as well as for outdoor areas. Electric Screens can also be recessed.

Screen Masking System, Salt Lake City

SCREEN MASKING

 

If you want to enjoy 16:9 and 2.35:1 anamorphic content on the same screen then consider masking. Automated masking systems are an electronically controlled system that crops the screen horizontally, vertically, or both, to perfectly fit your content. Watch a game in 16:9 and then watch the latest blockbuster in anamorphic widescreen – using the same screen. TYM can program screen masking system to be controlled by your home automation.
