HOME ENTERTAINMENT DEEP DIVE | Products
HOMEOWNERS HAVE ALWAYS craved
the latest and greatest home theater
technologies. Since the dawn of the 2000s
especially, home entertainment technology
development has accelerated at a seemingly
unprecedented rate for integrators to easily
quench that consumer AV thirst.
Video transitioned from NTSC broadcast and
the DVD format, which offered a resolution of
480p. Audio wasn't far behind as it transitioned
from Pro Logic II to Dolby Digital and what was
then DTS surround sound. More recently, we've
transitioned in and out of 3D, 1080p and Dolby
Digital Plus to 4K with High Dynamic Range, and
immersive audio that includes Dolby Atmos, DTS:X
and Auro-3D.
Now through the capabilities of the HDMI 2.1
format, we are sitting on the cusp of 8K at 60Hz,
4K at 120Hz, better gaming experiences via HDMI's
Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Auto Low Latency
Mode (ALLM) and Quick Frame Transport (QFT)
provisions. It also shouldn't be overlooked that

Integrators Are Conduits to
Ultimate At-Home AV Experiences
Today with these technologies so sophisticated, the
role of integrators has become increasingly important
to home theater-seeking homeowners.
Modern integration companies have the skills
and resources to design home entertainment systems
that rival commercial theaters, leveraging their
manufacturer and industry training that includes
trusted resources such as the Imaging Science
Foundation (ISF), the Home Acoustics Alliance
(HAA), CEDIA and the CTA.
Many years ago, it might have seemed farfetched
to say that integrators can deliver systems that are
on par with commercial cinemas but given how far
home technologies have progressed, the idea is no
longer outlandish. And high-performance home
entertainment isn't just for six-figure projects.
For a sense of how far custom electronics products
and technologies have come, here is a small
sampling of state-of-the-art home AV components
that can bolster the performance of any home
entertainment system.
