Hybrid Spaces, Home Theater

Hybrid Space, Home Theater

Media Room, Game Room, Multipurpose Room, Entertainment Room

Hybrid Space, home theater, media room, game room, multipurpose room, or entertainment room, it does not matter what you call it as long as you have the right components. Whether you are looking to create a space that emulates the movie theater experience, or want a room for listening to music where your kids can play their video games, it is easy to build a space suitable for all types of entertainment. Today, hybrid spaces are one of the fastest growing home theater trends. And, the reason is simple. By taking a hybrid approach you can create a dedicated space that combines the best elements of a dedicated home theater with those of a family room system. And, with the right system installed your room has access to a wide variety of content. Hybrid spaces when designed right, can get very close to the performance of the best home theaters but are much more “friendly” spaces. Hybrid spaces are suitable for gatherings where people can interact and relax. They also are better music spaces in most cases, as you can relax and read in a well-lit and aesthetically pleasing environment.

Over those years, trends in home audio video technology and interior design have transformed multipurpose room and home theater design but the core idea is the same: create a space that emulates the movie theater experience and eliminates all distractions so everyone can fully enjoy the cinema experience at home. Hybrid spaces are still in dedicated spaces but are designed to be more than a single purpose movie room. Considerations such as control for your lighting and shades, your display devices like a large flat screen TV, projector, and drop down screen, and sound system are of the utmost importance. Great room, family room, or living room, these hybrid spaces can easily be converted into a home theater experience. With some automated shades, a little lighting control, the right screen set up, and sound system, your hybrid space can be transformed into one of the best entertainment areas you have ever experienced. Today’s home theater is much more likely to be used as a hybrid space that serves as a multipurpose room for the entire family, a place where TV shows and movies are watched, video games are played, musical performances are savored and interactive media is engaged in.

Turn ANY Room Of Your Home Into A Hybrid Space Meant For All Types Of Entertainment…

Hybrid Spaces, Home Entertainment Room

Redefining The Entertainment Room

Many people are reluctant to dedicate just one space in their home for the purpose of home theater viewing. But there’s a shift taking place among homeowners these days as they take a much different approach to how their entertainment room is set up. That said, when creating your hybrid entertainment space, the following four details are critical:

  • Adjustable Lighting: for dimming your lights and closing your shades
  • Control: the brains to control more than just your entertainment such as the shades, temperature, door locks, and more
  • High Quality Surround Sound: you need a very high quality AV receiver and speakers
  • Display: for casual viewing a flat screen TV mounted to the wall, for the movie theater experience, a drop down screen and projector

Systems & Equipment Needed To Achieve The Critical Details Listed Above

  • Projector: JVC Reference Series Projector
  • Projection Screen: Screen Innovations
  • Speakers: Triad Speakers
  • A/V Receiver: Yamaha
  • TV For Casual Viewing: LG OLED
  • Control: Control4 One-Room Entertainment

JVC Reference Series Projector

Get The Perfect Picture

Imagination that magnifies human senses, JVC’s e-shift is proprietary high-resolution display technology that provides clear 4K precision images. A new algorithm in e-shift5 analyzes every pixel in the original 4K signal to determine the optimal data to create the e-shift frames. This improvement is particularly noticeable in fine detail, such as very small text. All JVC projectors offer high brightness and the industry’s leading native and dynamic contrast, which are essential for proper HDR playback. A new Active Intelligent Lens Aperture is now available for HDR to let viewers enjoy the most dynamic projected HDR images ever seen.

Unlike direct view displays where screen size and brightness are specified and fixed, projectors require adjustment in order to reproduce the PQ curve adopted by HDR 10. JVC projectors handle this by offering an Auto Switching HDR Picture mode and gamma adjustment, and now on two models – the DLA-X990RBK/RS640K and DLA-X790RBK/RS540K – also offers two color profiles, one prioritizing brightness and the other prioritizing color. These can be selected to best suit the viewing environment.

To further improve the reproduction of 4K content, JVC has improved its Multiple Pixel Control by sampling all pixels in the 4K signal to deliver the smoothest, most finely detailed images from 4K content. JVC’s Low Latency Mode reduces frame delay for improved game play, and also improves the processing of high bandwidth signals, such as 4K10bit, 12bit, etc. directly without compression to ensure that the quality of the original source is preserved.

Triad Designer Series Speakers

Triad Designer Series Speakers

The Triad Designer Series is a new class of high-performance in-ceiling speakers that delivers incredible audio quality by projecting the sound from three drivers through a tiny, four-inch speaker grill. The series includes a full-range speaker and subwoofer designed for superior audio performance and aesthetics that are sure to win over every audiophile and interior designer alike. With the Designer Series, you get multi-room audio speakers without compromise. You will love the rich, full sound from speakers that are nearly invisible and purposefully designed to match with in-ceiling downlighting.

 Beautiful Design. Bold, Rich Sound

The Designer Series Full-Range speaker (DS4-FR) is ideal for high-performance multi-room audio. It includes two conventional woofers for great bass response and an Ultra-Broad Dispersion (UBD) tweeter that disperses sound through a 150-degree sound field. Sound that delivers up to 50 percent wider than conventional speakers, minimizing spots where music is too loud or too quiet and filling the room with sound while using fewer speakers.

Get Rid of the Big Black Box on the Floor with A Discrete, Powerful Subwoofer

The DS4-FR provides full, rich sound sound on its own, but if you’re looking to experience deeper bass, get the matching subwoofer. The DS4-SUB adds the low-end punch to any room while being incredibly discrete. The Subwoofer uses the same four-inch grill as the Full-Range speaker, but don’t let the small size fool you. Mounted in the ceiling are three woofers that work in harmony to produce deep, rich bass.
