Frequently Asked Questions
- Type of TV? Ultra Slim, LED, UHD, SUHD, 4K, QLED? – All current TV technology uses a variation of LED technology. They vary according to thinness, resolution, contrast ratio, panel dimming, motion rate and more. We recommend any new TV purchase be 4K ready for the upcoming technology. We do unique and custom TV installs including over fireplaces.
- Size of TV? Due to HD programming, sitting distances can be closer than with the older CRT TVs. A good rule of thumb is to purchase the largest screen possible, yet not too large where you will feel you are sitting in the 1st row of a movie theater. Learn more about family friendly home theater design here, including how and where you want to have the TV mounted.
- Do I need Surround Sound? A large screen is only half the experience. A good surround system will allow you to “feel” the action. Whether it’s a car chase, exploding planets or even a subtle rain storm, surround sound allows for the “you are there” experience.
- Can I play different music in different rooms? Yes, we can dedicate a player for each room that can be operated independently of each other. That said, you can easily “group” rooms (zones) and control the volume independently.
- Why use a custom integrator? A custom integrator such as All Media Consultants can recommend products that we know work well together. An experienced integrator knows best how to professionally run cabling within walls, integrate all the components, custom program a universal remote and train you on how to use your new system.
- Do you offer outdoor audio video systems and installation? We sell and install outdoor flat panels and soundscape for outdoor living. We can implement quality surround sound and HD TV sets for great outdoor experiences.
