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.
What’s The Difference? What Are The Challenges? We Explain Below.

We love home theaters. They can bring the cinematic experience home without the crowds, high ticket prices, and questionable concessions. The parking is easier at home too. Many people ask us about building a home theater, and others ask us about installing media rooms. In some cases, people that ask about home theaters really want a media room, and the opposite also happens.
Is there a difference between a home theater and a media room? Yes. Home theaters tend to be purpose built highly engineered rooms. Media room tend to be multipurpose rooms. Both can deliver excellent performance. The important point is that that end product fits your lifestyle and entertainment preferences.

If you already have a home theater, you love home cinema. Even if you don't have one yet, you might enjoy the luxury of having a massive screen at home, minus the sticky floors and overpriced concessions of your local movieplex. There’s nothing like being able to settle in to watch a movie or a show in your very own space with pristine sight and sound, with all the comforts of home.
If you have already invested in a home theater or media room, you already enjoy the benefits of your very own entertainment emporium. But if you haven’t upgraded your equipment of late, you may be missing out on some exciting new capabilities. If you currently run a 1080P HD projector, you’re not able to take advantage of the latest movies and content available on Kaleidescape, Ultra HD Blu-ray dissc, Netflix, or Amazon Video, with their much higher detail and contrast. You might have been thinking about 4K as those flat-panel TVs that are now mainstream and very affordable, while 4K projector prices have stayed relatively high. Because projectors don’t sell in nearly the same volumes as TVs, the cost curve of new technology moves south more slowly for projectors – but that’s changing. Sony now offer 11 models of projectors from $3,999 to $60,000. With such a broad product line there is sure to be something the meets you needs and your budget.
When it comes to home theater projectors, one name stands out – Sony. Sony is a longtime pioneer in too many technologies to list, and projection technology is no exception. In 2003, they were the first to introduce a full HD projector for home use. In 2011, they launched the first 4K projector for the home. Now, Sony has the broadest line it has ever fielded in home theater projection, with 4K models from affordable to the very high end.
Read on to learn more Sony’s 4K projectors, and see how easy it would be to bring incredible color, clarity, and detail of 4K technology to your home theater installation in the Morristown, NJ area.
