Today’s Short Throw Projectors Offer Crystal Clear Images

Create the Immersive Cinematic Experience in Any Room 

One of the best ways to enjoy your favorite movies is to watch on a big screen using the latest 4K HDR projectors. While many of today’s 4K QLED TVs deliver phenomenal images, the total immersion in a film that takes you to another place in time is best achieved with a projector and large screen. The bigger the picture is, the more engaging and dynamic the viewing experience, the more you bring a movie to life.

Today’s projectors offer 4K HDR ultra-high-resolution images, creating bright, detailed, lifelike pictures. Whether you’re considering creating a media room, home theater, or upgrading your living room entertainment, projectors may offer the movie and gaming experience you’re looking for. Some clients are, at first, skeptical. Will a projector and screen mar their home’s aesthetics and do they have the room? 

That’s where a short throw projector comes in. Let’s explore how we use these projectors to create the ultimate cinematic experience for our clients in Westport, CT.

The Features of a Short Throw Projector

The “throw” in short throw projectors refers to the distance of the projector to the screen. Short throw projectors are usually about 3-8 feet away from the screen and produce images up to 120-inches.

You no longer need to find a spot in the back of the room to project the large-screen image that transcends reality. These projectors and screens transport you to exotic destinations and otherworldly realms and take you to virtual gaming sessions and interactive fitness studios. The one that’s right for your particular environment depends on numerous factors, including ambient light and intended use.

Some deliver lightning-fast response times, ideal for gaming and sporting events, while others offer incredibly bright images that don’t get washed out in brighter environments.

The Ultra-Short Throw Projector

Another option is the ultra-short throw projectors which generally “throw” images about 0-4 feet, making this the ideal solution for smaller spaces. One of our partners, Sony, produces an ultra-short throw projector that creates high-resolution images up to 147-inches. 

The Big Picture

Add the latest surround sound technology, beautiful acoustic paneling, and luxurious over-stuffed loveseats or recliners, and you’ll experience the ultimate home theater that rivals the best in town. 

Install high-performance in-ceiling speakers, an ambient light rejecting screen, and a projector that disappears from view until ready for use, and you have the perfect setup for your living area or media room, a space that can transform into movie watching or game playing with one touch of a button while still retaining your home’s aesthetics.

When your entertainment is managed by your Control4 home automation platform, you enjoy one-touch control of all your entertainment systems via touchscreens, in-wall custom keypads, and handheld remotes. 

At Digital Home Systems, we specialize in high-performance audio, video, and home automation systems. With a background as musicians and technology enthusiasts, we are committed to creating the perfect entertainment spaces that exceed our clients’ expectations.
