8K TV: THE FUTURE OF TELEVISION?

2399378_1000x0

Televisions have come a long way since the early days of small black-and-white screens with vertical hold issues. Over the last several decades, each new TV technology rollout has promised the best resolution and clearest picture that would offer you the best solution to your television-watching needs. Then a few months later, the next best television would be suddenly introduced, making your old new one obsolete, or at least not the best on the market at the time.

High definition technology that was once reserved for top of the line television sets in the most exclusive homes is now standard with the industry taking the concept to the next step with each new iteration of the best television resolution, picture, and audio capabilities. In 2012, LG released the first 4K television that promised and delivered a resolution that far exceeded its 1080P HD predecessor, increasing the pixels from 1920 x 1080 to a whopping 3840 x 2160. Right on the heels of 4K, the industry doubled the resolution sharpness with new 8K televisions featuring 7680 x 4320 pixels.

ELEVATING YOUR MEDIA ROOM EXPERIENCE IN AUSTIN WITH DOLBY ATMOS

2972789_1000x0

Are you tired of watching movies or listening to music in your media room and feeling like you’re missing something? If so, you’re not alone. For years, homeowners have struggled with achieving high-quality audio in their media rooms. But with Dolby Atmos, the media room experience has been completely transformed. 

Dolby Atmos is an immersive sound technology that takes traditional surround sound to the next level. It creates a 3D audio experience that puts you right in the middle of the action, making you feel like you're part of the movie or game. The technology works by placing sound objects in a three-dimensional space, making the sound appear to come from all around you, including above and below. This creates a more realistic and immersive experience, making you feel like you're right in the middle of the action. Dolby Atmos has revolutionized the way we experience sound in movies, TV shows, and video games. It allows for a more dynamic and detailed sound experience, making even the smallest sounds come to life.

In this blog, we’re excited to share with you just how much Dolby Atmos has changed the game when it comes to audio in your media room.
