Home Entertainment: Screens and Projectors for any room

on Thursday, 23 October 2014. Posted in Home Theater

In our previous blog, we discussed how a home theater is a great addition to any home and can bring the family together. There are so many possibilities you could do with a home theater. So this week we want to discuss some great screens and projectors that can complement different areas within the home and provide amazing home entertainment.

A family room with cozy couches or a basement man cave can both be a great media room. A media room is a multifunctioning space within the home, and for this type of home entertainment space it is best to set up a beautiful screen. One of the best screens for a home media room is the new Sony 4k Ultra HD TV. Sony’s new TV is automation-ready with two-way IP communications. This means the TV can both receive commands and provide status feedback, like I’M ON or the VOLUME is 70%, etc.

Now, if you have a dedicated room for a Home Theater that is fantastic! There are so many screens available, but we really love any one of the Stewart Film screens. A Runco projector pairs greatly with the Stewart Film screen, and both products help to create a unique display and provide seamless movie watching.

Lastly, we cannot forget some outdoor entertainment. Yes I know it is fall and getting colder day by day, but next summer you could be the go to place for those summer BBQ’s. Screen Innovations (SI) motorized screen and an Epson projector are two great products for outdoor entertainment. The SI screen is easily retractable and combined with the Epson projector can provide an amazing picture even in the brightest of light.

What is truly amazing about home theater entertainment is that any room or outdoor space can be integrated with any home automation system. For example, Control4 is our go to system for any home theater, home automation, lighting needs, etc.; and putting all that together creates a unified home entertainment system that could work easily with a push of a button. Not only a home entertainment system, but a whole connected home.

Now you can't watch a movie with just a picture, audio quality is a major compontent as well to any great home theater. We are far from watching silent movies in our technology driven world today. Can you guess what we might write about for next week's blog?

TV Purchasing Guide

on Tuesday, 18 March 2014. Posted in Knoxville Flat Screen TVs

LED, plasma, 4K, and curved are all features of TVs currently on the market. With so many different types of TVs and new technology coming out constantly, it can be a daunting task to pick out a new TV. I know when I bought my most recent Samsung, I was completely overwhelmed during the search. There were so many to choose from it was unreal. How do you know if it's the right size? What about brands? What's this 4K TV and why does it cost more than my car? Buying a new TV should be exciting and not overwhelming. If you're in the market for a new TV it's important to consider several options.

Budget is of course a huge deciding factor when it's time to purchase a new TV. Fortunately, there are many great TV's on the market that can accommodate any sized budget. Once you find your new TV, make sure you shop around. The store down the street may have it for a much better price and since most stores price match, the ball is really in the purchaser's court. It's another great idea to be on the lookout for end-of-line discounts. Since new televisions are released several times a year, picking up the older model is a great option for saving some cash.

Another big step in the purchasing process is to figure out what you want in your new TV based on your budget. Of course you want the best picture HDTV that you can get. Plasmas are becoming more rare, but many say they have the best picture. You just have to be ready to shell out the money or go for a more budget friendly high-quality LED. A great TV is going to have a picture that reproduces the incoming source as closely as possible without "improving" smoothness, color, or other characteristics. Less important (and confusing) factors include maximum light output and video processing (120Hz, 240Hz, etc.). If you've got a bangin' budget and are looking for the top of the line, then check out 4K TVs. They have four times as many pixels as today's 1080p TVs, but come with a much heftier price tag.

Screen size is definitely one of the most important aspects when buying a new television. Most consumers tend to go bigger than their old TV, but bigger isn't always better. Just because you can afford an 80-inch LED HDTV doesn't mean you should run out and buy it. It's crucial to consider room size when buying a new TV. A 40 to 42-inch TV would suit most consumers, but if you're going to be sitting at least 8 to 10 feet from the screen, a 46 to 50-inch screen would be a better fit. If you have an even more spacious room, consider an even larger screen. If you need a new TV for a bedroom, usually 26 to 32-inch TVs work for bedroom-sized spaces. Basically the ideal screen size can be calculated by multiplying the distance that you sit away from the TV by 0.535 and then rounding it up to the nearest size. So, if you sit 80 inches away from your TV, the ideal size is 42-inch (80 x 0.535= 42.8).

TV buying should be a fun and exciting time. Don't get overwhelmed with stats and stiff price tags. Know what YOU want and what will work best in your space. If you don't think you would use a Smart TV because you already have a Roku Box , then don't get a Smart TV! Ultimately the decision is yours so listen to your gut and buy what you like.

Knoxville Flat Screen TVs

Searching for the perfect flat screen TV? David Katzmaier, Senior Editor at, released his choices for top flat screen TVs of 2012. David writes:

Best picture quality overall
Panasonic TC-PVT50 series

"I don't expect the VT50 to have any competition at the top of this list, unless OLED TVs somehow make it to market. Even then, they'll cost thousands more than this awesome Panasonic plasma. Its black levels are the inkiest from plasma since the Kuro, its color accuracy is top-notch, and, like all plasmas, it benefits from essentially perfect screen uniformity and off-angle fidelity."

Second-best picture quality, best for an LED
Sharp Elite PRO-X5FD series

"The Elite LED-based LCD from Sharp was designed in homage to the vaunted Kuro Elite plasmas from Pioneer, and like the Kuro and the VT50 it earned a "10" in picture quality. As usual, it's all about black levels; the Pro-X5FD's are even deeper than the Kuro's and the VT50's, don't suffer noticeable blooming, and maintain excellent fidelity from off-angle--for an LED. I'd even recommend the 70-inch Elite over the 65-inch VT50 for money-no-object shoppers crave those extra inches."

Third-best picture quality (tie), best value
Panasonic TC-PST50 series

"As we said in the review, the ST50 "sets a lofty standard for HDTV picture quality this year," and if picture quality is your deciding factor yet money is still an object, we haven't reviewed anything better. Its black levels are deeper than those of any 2011 plasma, its color is extremely accurate, and its bright-room image superb. We expect a few other TVs to surpass it on this list later this year, but we don't expect any of them to cost less."

Third-best picture quality (tie)
Panasonic TC-PGT50 series

"The only reason the GT50 sits below the ST50 on this list is because I can't place them next to one another. For all practical purposes their picture quality is identical -- that THX mode doesn't make any difference in this context. Both are a hair better than the Samsung PNE6500 by virtue of superior light output, but all three are very close."
