Building a 4K Movie Library for Your Home Theater Installation
Get the Movies You Want in Crisp Ultra High Definition
Many Decatur, IL homeowners are living their dream of watching movies the way they were meant to be seen, namely, in their own private home theater installations. The benefits are numerous, including optimal picture and sound quality. But one aspect that some movie buffs find difficult is building, organizing and accessing their vast movie collection. In this blog, we’ll explore how you can get the most out of your system while still maintaining a collection you can be proud of. Read on for more.
If you’re a fan of physical media, there’s nothing that beats coming home from the store with a bagful of Blu-ray discs. Late last year we saw the emergence of 4K Blu-ray, the Ultra High Definition alternative to now standard 1080p Blu-ray discs. The discs offer sharper picture quality and many support HDR capable players. One of the chief benefits of building a physical media collection is the ability to add a player to any room in the house, and easily pop in your favorite movie to watch whenever you want. Additionally, 4K UHD Blu-ray discs typically support Dolby Atmos or other immersive audio sound formats. That way, your movies will sound as good as they look when you sit back and enjoy them.
Digital isn’t just the wave of the future; it’s here to stay. Many homeowners are turning to in-home servers to store their favorite 4K UHD movies. The benefits of digital storage are obvious: you can minimize clutter and stream content anywhere in your home, without sacrificing quality. As storage becomes physically smaller while capacity continues to increase, pretty soon you’ll enjoy virtually endless space to house all of your favorite movies. An added bonus: many digital versions of movies also exist on the cloud. That means that even when you’re on the go, you can access anything in your collection from an iPad or laptop, as long as you have a high-speed internet connection available.
Many homeowners are also discovering the benefits of streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. Both offer Ultra HD tiers for the subscription services, allowing you to access all of the content they’re currently offering that month. While some movie lovers may not love the idea of not owning their own content, others will find the convenient access to thousands of movies refreshing. One small issue with streaming services: you’re dependent on the server of each service to provide you with top-quality content. You can ensure that your home is prepared to handle the added bandwidth of streaming 4K UHD signals by upgrading your network. However, if you’re a stickler for pristine resolution, you may prefer to invest in Blu-ray discs or a private digital collection.
