Home Cinema Construction

Home cinema construction also known as home theater construction refers to designing entertainment systems at home. Using audio and video equipment they try to re-create a movie theater mood and experience within or outside a private home. Till recently the typical requirements of a home theater set up consists of a video projector projecting a large image, a high-resolution HDTV system with a large flat screen, a DVD containing a movie or other video content or Blu-ray disc with high-resolution that is played on a Blu-ray player or DVD player, increasing the audio with surround sound speakers (five or more) and at least one low-frequency subwoofer.

Design of Home Cinema
Presently home cinema indicates a real "cinema experience" and hence has components providing a higher quality than an average television having only built-in speakers. A home cinema construction has the following parts:

Audio and video input devices: Audio/video (one or more) sources. Movie media formats with high resolution like Blu-ray discs are usually preferred, though either DVD or video game console systems or both are also used. Some home theaters have a HTPC (Home Theater PC) with software application for media acting as the main library for music and video content using a 10 foot remote control and user interface.

Audio processing devices: Input devices processing is done by either a preamplifier or standalone AV receiver and sound processor for difficult surround sound formats. The input is selected at this point before forwarding it to the output.
Audio output: Systems have two speakers at least for stereo sound; most systems however have a 5.1 surround sound system, having right and left speakers, right and left rear speakers, a center speaker, and a subwoofer. There is a possibility of having up to 11 speakers with extra subwoofers.

Video output: Display in a large-screen HDTV, SDTV, or 3D TV. As existed in 2015, the norm is flat screen HDTV. Options include plasma TV, Liquid Crystal Display television (LCD), and OLED.

Atmosphere: The cinema feel is improved by comfortable seating. Sophisticated home cinema construction also usually has sound insulation for preventing noise from escaping the room, and a wall treatment specialized for balancing the sound inside the room.
Dedicated Home Theater Rooms

Some home cinema lovers go to the extent of building a dedicated room at home for the theater. These installations usually include expensive acoustic design elements that isolate sound and provide the capability for an almost ideal listening environment. Usually these installations are specified as "screening rooms" for differentiating from simpler installations.

Your home cinema may not be exactly an alternative to the experience in a cinema theater but considering the travel to and from the cinema theater, the traffic, the pollution and so on, the investment you make in a home cinema construction is definitely worth it.
