No Dedicated Theater Room? No Problem with a Flex Theater

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

Why doesn’t everyone have a theater?

With all the style, performance, and cost benefits of front projection, why doesn’t every home in the world have a theater as their primary entertainment display? First off, projection is seen as relatively complicated (as opposed to a buy - and - hang flat panel display, which is often a do-it-yourself project for the homeowner). This leads to people believing it to be wildly expensive, overly complex, or not even considering it as a possibility at all. Indeed, most people simply don’t think of front projection as a viable option when shopping for a “television.” The second reason is people associate projectors with dark, cave-like rooms that can only be used for movie watching. Sometimes space, room size, or ceiling height limitations can make homeowners believe that projection will never work for them. Once the homeowner considers projection, then the real work begins of making it work for their room.

 Flexible, Fashionable, and Impressive

One of the ways to beat the sun and create incredible visual experiences in the home is with a flex-theater. When you can’t dedicate the space or the budget for a dedicated home theater, a flexible design that accommodates multiple uses of a single space can be a perfect compromise. A projection system combined with modular furniture and lighting control can transform a living room into a theater back into an entertainment space with a simple tap on a touch screen.

We recommend a flex-theater that contemplates the viewing patterns, needs, decorating sensibilities, and budget of the homeowner and is tuned especially to their needs. One size does not have to fit all, as each projection solution can be unique. In order to do this, the room designer or installer must start with an assessment of the room itself.
