Does the Media Room in Your New Jersey Home Get Lots of Light?

When you are looking to install or upgrade a media room screen in your Warren, NJ home, your tendency is likely to “go big.” While flat-panel TVs have gotten ever-larger, at a point beyond 90 inches or so, a projector and screen will provide the largest and most cost-effective image.

Some people may not initially want a projector because of aesthetics or perceived complexity. The reality is that a projector setup done correctly is just as easy to use and looks as great as any other display. A more significant reason someone might not want a projector is because of windows in the room that let in a large amount of light. If your media room serves a purpose beyond films in the dark, you might desire more light in the room, especially on a Sunday afternoon while watching a Giants football game.

Does that mean a projector is out of the question? Far from it. First, you can control light with smart, automated features like motorized shades. But that doesn't mean you need a fully darkened room to watch football either. The latest projectors from top brands like Sony, coupled with ambient light-absorbing screens, make it easy for your media room not to have to be a cave.

Read on to learn more about one such versatile screen, the Black Diamond from Screen Innovations.

TV or Projector? What to Know About Media Room Screens

Choosing a New Media Room Screen Doesn’t Need to be Difficult

TV or Projector? What to Know About Media Room Screens

The home theater versus media room “debate” may be more shades of gray versus black and white, just as the debate regarding a flat-panel TV or a projector has no clear-cut answer. Screen, flat-panel, and projector technology have advanced to a state where either can be an excellent option with a wide variety of media.

Just a few years ago, that might not have been the case. Projectors were best for huge cinematic screens and darkened rooms, and TVs were best for smaller rooms that had windows. We might exaggerate a little here because you can mitigate light with automated window treatments, but in general, these axioms held true. Now there are a variety of projectors that look great with all types of video content, and the same goes for flat panels.

So how do you choose between a TV and a projector for your Chester, NJ media room screen? There’s no absolute right answer, but we can get you on the path to the choice that’s right for you.
