Brief description of the pros and cons of living room theater VS independent video room
April 07, 2021
[Home Theater Network HDAV.com.cn] If you want to build a theater system in the living room environment, would you choose to continue the original home environment style, or based on a professional cinema system? I believe most of the friends choose the former. It is for this reason that the living room theater and the independent audio-visual room are constructed in two sharp contrasts. The construction of the living room theater is often more about how to maintain the original home decoration style, retain the use of the living room, and then add the elements of the theater. The independent audio-visual room is completely aimed at realizing the sound and picture in the movie. The design concept often does not need to consider the concept of the home. The construction focuses on the professional room acoustics and optical design, and does not retain the original home decoration style.
The system construction of the living room theater is diversified
For independent audio-visual rooms, the reference standards for construction are professional cinemas and film review studios, which result in a simplification of the system configuration of independent audio-visual rooms, often by the large-screen front projection system plus hidden installations. The surround surround speaker system is composed. The living room theater has a relatively high degree of freedom. It can use either a large screen front projection system or a flat panel TV, a laser TV or even a micro-projection system as a display part of the entire system. In the audio system, you can also choose traditional floor speakers, satellite speakers, and hidden speakers.
Of course, due to the consideration of the living room environment, the installation freedom of the entire audio and video system is not as high as that of the independent audio-visual room. For example, the installation of the surround sound system has more needs to be considered to achieve better. Sound effects. In the video system, the interference caused by the ambient light to the picture should be considered, so that the device with higher output brightness or stronger anti-interference ability can be selected. There are also many differences in acoustic processing. The irregularities in the living room and the overall elongated size make it difficult to achieve the desired results after the acoustic treatment.
Living room theater does not deliberately pursue professionalism
From some living room theater cases abroad, it can be found that the designer's design of the living room theater does not excessively pursue the environment like a professional cinema, but integrates the two concepts of fashion home decoration and cinema into the living room. The living room theater did not lose its original function as a living room. Simply put, when the projection screen in the living room theater is closed, the whole environment is not much different from the general living room, and even if the projection screen is opened, it only adds the function of watching movies in the living room, and will not Affect the family's activities in the living room. This is very different from the independent audio-visual room design. The audio-visual room often requires certain privacy and functionality, and must meet certain acoustic requirements. Therefore, different degrees of room acoustic treatment, such as suction, are usually performed. Sound and diffusion processing. Similarly, the room will also handle a lot of room treatments for the shading problem to achieve better picture performance.
The independent video room has lower requirements for the display system.
If you want to use the front projection system as the large screen display system in the living room theater, you need to pay more attention. Not all home theater projectors are suitable for use in the living room environment. After all, the mainstream home theater projectors generally have a brightness of less than 2000 lumens, which has strict requirements on the use environment. A slight ambient light will obviously affect the color and detail level of the picture. At present, many projector brands have introduced home entertainment projectors with a brightness of more than 2000 lumens for living room theaters to improve the performance of images in harsh ambient light. In fact, even if you use this high-brightness home projector, you need a high-gain projection screen to achieve a basically satisfactory picture.
Most of the independent audio-visual rooms are basements or separate rooms, and the problem of shading is basically unnecessary. A single room also has an enormous advantage in acoustic processing. The enclosed room guarantees a good acoustic treatment of the audio-visual room, which also brings a strong cinematic effect, which is unmatched by the living room cinema. In the audiovisual experience, the effect of the living room theater is far less than that of the independent video room.
Living room theater needs to fully consider the harmony between audio-visual equipment and interior decoration
How to integrate with the interior decoration style, this is the place we must consider when constructing the living room theater and selecting audio-visual equipment. Different interior styles have different color combinations, which can eventually form different types of styles. In the living room environment, it is generally difficult to adopt a hidden way, unless you want to build a living room theater before the renovation. Therefore, whether the design of audio-visual equipment is fashionable or not, whether it has a hidden installation method is a place we need to consider. Of course, the living room theater also needs to pay attention to the placement of the speakers, otherwise it will not bring a sense of realistic surround and surround. However, the placement of the speakers does not destroy the decor of the living room itself, so sometimes it is necessary to use an embedded or hidden installation. However, the independent audio-visual room will not have such considerations. Because it is a separate room, it has a natural advantage in the placement and installation of the speakers. It does not change the position of the speakers because of the consistency of the style, resulting in audiovisual. The experience is not good.
to sum up:
The difference between the living room theater and the independent audio-visual room is mainly reflected in the "effect" and "quick". The living room theater is relatively independent of the audio-visual room. It is low in cost and does not occupy independent space. It is faster and closer to life. . However, the living room theater also has its drawbacks. Its unclosedness and light transmission have caused its sound painting effect to be difficult to achieve.
The independent audio-visual room will undoubtedly cost more than the living room theater. However, the closed environment professional acoustic processing will double the audio-visual effect of the audio-visual room. The independent audio-visual room is more likely to achieve the cinematic effect and the refreshing sensation.
