Limited Space in Your Media Room for Big Screens?

Limited Space in Your Media Room for Big Screens?

Discover the New Options with Ultra-Short Throw Projectors

 A media room is a place where you want to enjoy your entertainment with the best possible audio and video quality for an engaging experience. Usually, that means fitting the largest, highest-quality screen in that space that fits both your viewing preferences and your home’s style.

When it comes to large screens, it's tough to beat the image from a projector for big-screen performance. For some spaces, though, projectors may not be the best fit practically or aesthetically. A projector requires a ceiling or back wall installation for optimal performance, and some spaces are not well suited for that.

In the past few years, a new high-quality large-screen option has emerged: the ultra-short throw projector. These projectors are easier to place and install, can display screens up to 120 inches in diameter, and even work well in rooms with lots of ambient light. 

If you're looking for a cinematic screen with less fuss in your Northbrook, IL media room setup, keep reading to learn more about ultra-short throw options.

Introducing Human-Centric Lighting

Tunable Lighting Is the Hottest New Feature of Residential Lighting Control

What is human-centric lighting? It sounds like a buzzword, but there is real science behind it. Saying something is human-centric is applying science to benefit the biological and emotional health and wellbeing of people.

As applied to lighting, human-centric means adjusting the color temperature and intensity of electric light sources to mimic what sunlight does throughout the day. Studies show that lighting can have a profound impact on the way we feel. Have you ever felt tired and sluggish on a succession of cloudy days in the depths of a Chicagoland winter?  Can you recall the positive difference the sun makes when it shines afterward?

The thrust behind human-centric lighting is letting technology simulate natural light to keep us in tune with our natural rhythms. It’s the latest smart feature in today’s residential lighting control systems, and we’ll explore why you should consider it for your Glenview, IL home.

 

Read on to learn more about human-centric lighting and its benefits.
