Home cinema systems are perfect for avid film watchers that miss the quality of cinema technology. A home theatre system consists of three main components. One portion is the visual display which is usually a flat screen high definition television. Different types of television screens vary from plasma screens to LCD or LED displays. The high definition technology offers the sharpest visuals which can be better than the picture quality found at the cinema. Films can be viewed in true colours and crisp textures, the way they are meant to be viewed.
Another component in a home cinema system is the sound system which is difficult to replicate the quality in most theatres without the proper equipment. 5.1 sound systems provide the film viewer with a high fidelity surround sound. Audience can experience films instead of simply listening to them. Five speakers surround them and envelope viewers in a clear and powerful sound. The system also covers all the levels of the film’s audio track, with the addition of a subwoofer to generate the bass tones.
The last home theatre component consists of the media player. DVD players can be integrated into home systems to get the best quality out of the visual and audio media, with some systems having a special setting for DVDs designed to enhance it for high definition standards. Blu-ray players also enhance the quality of films and match perfectly with high definition television screens to create sharp images and smooth action sequences. Many televisions also have a Blu-ray setting to optimize picture and sound.
