I recently watched, downloaded to the Kaleidescape Strato, Ant-Man and The Wasp in glorious 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos. It was amazing! I began thinking about the incredible level of performance we can provide today, for far less money than 10, or even 5, years ago. We can now truly deliver what the director intended in the comfort of your own home. This put a huge smile on my face. This was exactly the reason I started Sound & Vision over 25 years ago! Providing a magical experience is what we’re all about.

Why is now the time to plan your home theater? For the first time I can recall, there is a perfect alignment of both amazing sound with Dolby Atmos, breathtaking picture technology with 4K HDR, and plenty of available 4K HDR content. The advancements in both audio and video make it the perfect time to explore your theater options. We’d love to help you get started on planning your dream theater or providing an upgrade path for those with an existing system. We provide turn-key theaters from design, construction and the finest seating you’ve ever seen.

What is 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos?

4K televisions have been around for years but 4K projectors were reserved for the top end of the price range and 4K content was limited. Well both have now changed dramatically. We now have true 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range - contrast between the brightest whites and darkest blacks) projectors that start at $4,995 and 4K HDR content is everywhere with Kaleidescape and the Apple TV emerging as the content leaders. Kaleidescape has over 600 movies in 4K HDR for ultimate performance. All of your favorite original shows from Netflix and Amazon are in 4K, many with Dolby Atmos sound. iTunes also has tons of content.

Dolby Atmos employs overhead speakers as well as surrounds to immerse you in the sound. This has had a huge impact on the quality of sound and the in-home movie experience. With the addition of a couple speakers, you are enveloped in the sound like never before. This is the first major upgrade to sound we’ve had in more than a decade and it’s a massive improvement.
