The concept of the home theatre, or home cinema became popular in the 1950s. It all started with the easy availability of the 8mm Kodak film in the U.S. Three decades later, in the 1980s, the development of multi-channel sound systems and Laser Disc gave a new dimension to the concept. The technology has come a long way since then and today we have lavish home cinemas all over the world.
Until the early 1990s, a home cinema in the U.S. typically included a Laser Disc/VHS player with a big rear projection TV set. Few also had the expensive front projector version and a dark room to go with.
Towards the end of the 1990s and into 2000, the DVD format, Dolby Digital audio, and HDTV were introduced, revolutionizing the future of home cinema, and in fact, of cinema in general. It progressed into the luxury of 3D and Blue-ray Disc since 2010.
5-11 surround sound system with the sub woofer, digital media streaming, HD projector, and 3D glasses, all started gaining popularity from the late 2000s.
Today, having a home cinema can mean having just the basics, everything fancy, or anything in between. The basics include:
- Projector CRT
- Plasma display
- Laser rear-projection SDTV
- Audio/visual receiver with amplifier
- LaserDisc/DVD/Blue-ray player
- Satellite receiver or cable connection
Setting up a home cinema
In order to set up a home cinema, you need a large room which can be soundproofed, and is not a common passage to other rooms. You may or may not have a theme for the home cinema. You need a layout for the styling of the room and the position of the screen and audio systems.
According to your budget, you could get the basic AV system if you already have them because they are no longer sold. Or, you could have surround sound system ranging from 5-11 speakers, with sub woofer.
Construction and installation
After the soundproofing is done to the walls and soundproof doors and windows (if any) are installed, the recliners are in, the projector, screen, and sound system need to be installed by professionals. You also need the necessary permits before you can start any of the construction. It is very important to get the right material, and decide the positioning of things right before the installation begins. Drywall, carpeting, screen positioning, and wiring must all go according to plan.
If you already have a home cinema, or if you are looking a few years into the future from your currently new home cinema, here are some tips:
- Begin with sealing the room with plastic on the doors after the things that need to be replaced have been cleared out.
- If you need rewiring, get experts for the demolition of the walls, so that only the minimum amount of demolition required is done, unless you want a makeover for the walls as well.
- Check the new lighting and sound wiring connections before installing the whole system.
You can do a lot with modern rooms, from layered flooring, to hidden wiring. Good luck with all.
