Your 4K Display
You obviously can’t have a 4K Ultra HD experience without the screen, but it’s still worth talking about the different options available to you. The first choice is whether to go with a traditional projector and screen or opt for a large-screen TV instead. Both options offer a 4K, hyper-clear picture for your favorite films—it’s up to you to decide which style fits your home theater installation goals for décor and ambiance.
The second choice you need to make is which brand you’ll use for the video display. For both projectors and TVs, nothing beats the quality of Sony. Sony’s 4K SXRD Home Cinema Projector, for example, offers 4K with a super-fast response rate of 2.5 milliseconds, ensuring your display consistently shows crystal clear images.
4K video displays require specific cables that are designed to handle 4K content. Traditional HDMI cables simply won’t cut it—instead, you need HDMI 2.0. The new HDMI standard supports the much higher bandwidth required to stream video in 4K Ultra HD. HDMI technology is rapidly advancing, so it’s important to choose cables during your home theater installation that won’t be obsolete within a year.
Your Home Network
The extra bandwidth that your HDMI 2.0 cable is sending to your video display has to come from somewhere. Your home network has to be fast enough to support the demands of 4K streaming. Calling your Internet service provider and upgrading to their fastest Internet speeds may not help much if your home network isn’t optimized to send strong signals to all of your devices. That’s where Luxul comes in.
Luxul is a company that provides professional IP networking products. That might sound like something that’s only relevant to large businesses, but their wireless access points are just as effective in your home. By installing access points throughout your home, you can boost the power of your network, providing a clear signal straight to your 4K home theater.
