Experience Ultimate Home Theatre with Tactile Transducers

tactile transducerI had also been to cinemas enjoying the movie, either with friends or other family members some time ago. Such moments provide not only relief from the demanding realities of life, but also afford quality time for the whole family. It’s an event that most people look forward to.

For other people, going to the movie theatres is nothing like what one may experience if one would rather watch from home.  This was true for many for many years ago. With the big screen, one can leap into a fabricated reality that the big studio production re-creates. One feature that contributes much during most of these movie magic moments is the surround sound system, which simultaneously transmits crisp sounds from different directions at the same time. By combining the sound from a number of separate speakers in a synchronized manner, it may be feasible to produce a spatial imaging element that contributes to the total movie-going experience that a standard television cannot provide.

With the current innovations, however, the wireless surround sound system that can be set up to accompany your own home theatre system, can actually reduce the difference between the theatre or movie house experience from having to watch the movie inside the house. Moreover, recent developments in the audio technology provided an even simpler means of creating an outstanding audio experience than with any other wireless surround sound set up. This can be made possible with the aid of tactile transducers (also known as bass shakers). With these features, an extremely low frequency vibrational energy can be created that can actually be felt within the body each time a sound is played. These bass shakers permit one to encounter every shaking movement, thrusting or thumping motions that any character in a movie are producing or experiencing. Furthermore, if a transducer is attached to a hard surface, vibrations create an emotional smash when action is brought up within the storyline of a movie.

With these added features that anyone can add to complement his own home theatre set up, everything that is being presented in the movie becomes more vivid, and creates a totally different experience for the viewer. In essence, you, as the viewer, will feel more engaged when watching or just simply listening to a song channeled through the home theatre.

Hence, once you have experienced a bass shaker, the usual home theatre surround system may just not be enough for you then. Your option would be to look for tactile transducers to complement or upgrade your current set up and to make the movie- viewing or audio-receiving experience even more enjoyable.

If you are a kind of person who are handy with tools and can manage to set time to personally buy tactile transducers individually and have them installed where you can also link standard speakers, then you can do that. However, for most people who are technically challenged or those who would rather have it for an easier way, there is always an option.

Thanks to technology, now there is a number of home theatre with a wireless bass shaker already been built into it. A simple search from reputable providers online will actually do the job.

Complement your home theatre with a bass shaker and feel the earth moving with every movement in the movie or audio stream that you are enjoying, and get that ultimate home theatre experience that you had always wanted.

Home Theater System: Audio and Video Requirements

home theatre audio video requirements1

Every fully functioning home theatre system has three basic components– the television or the video display, the sound system, and the source player (provides the picture and the sound). Even now that a cable or a satellite TV is almost always found in every home, still, additional equipment and/or features are installed most of the time to increase the utility of a home theatre set-up.

These are the three major electronic advancements that had been making movie-watching, playing games with an Xbox, or listening to your favourite sounds more gratifying as well as meaningful, and are considered the basic components of a home theatre system.

Now, let me describe these components or elements one by one.

First, consider the visual element. Current innovations that allow video display options are available depending on your personal budget and tastes.

Rear Projection Televisions, which are also known as RPTVs, provide a reasonably-priced screen-sized TV than a television with a larger screen and separate video projector or screen arrangement. As the term applies, with the RPTV the images are projected or reflected into the TV screen from behind it. Not like in a movie theater where a projector is placed in front of a big screen.

At present, there are three types of RPTV technology: CRT, LCD and DLP.

With a CRT or Cathode Ray Tube projection system, there are actually three tubes, each projecting one of the basic colors via a light magnifying lens through a mirror that reflects the image onto the television screen. These colors combine with the help of quality wirings, CRT size and a good lens to provide very high resolution images. By the end of 2012, these big-box screens had finally come to extinction when Mitsubishi, the last company to make and sell RPTVs, announced the end of its TV business.

Another type of rear projection TV is the LCD or the Liquid Crystal Display Television. An LCD TV is both a rear projection and a flat screen. However, LCD rear projection TVs are more compact than the CRT and use less power.

Still another type of RPTV is the DLP or the Digital Light Processing Projection TV, which uses chips to project images onto the TV screen. These are normally designed with a larger rear display and are not flat.

Finally, the Plasma TVs, that are designed to allow different gases to be trapped between two panels of glass, and also an electronic signal that can modify these gases to allow them to display a picture. These televisions are produced with a sleek and thin design and can produce excellent resolution. Plasma TVs create images that display perfectly without any blur.

Whatever, video display you intend to add to your own home theater set up, make sure you measure the location where you are to place the TV that it would fit perfectly there once set up.

Let us now look into the audio elements of a home theatre system.

As you are well aware, the sound system contributes much in the level of enjoyment and functionality of your home theatre set up. What then, would a good audio system require?

Receiver. This feature takes the audio signal, and also, most of the time, the video signal, and channels them to the proper feature of the system.

Amplifier. This feature is what builds up the signal strength before it is routed to the speakers. Most of the time, an amplifier is already built in a receiver, however.

Surround Sound Speakers. Typically, surround sound speakers comes as a set of five for most home theater set ups– a center channel, a right front, right rear, left front and left rear. These speakers, when properly positioned, will make the sound come from the appropriate direction.

Finally, the data or signal source, the third basic element of a home theatre system.

A basic DVD player is a usual signal source in most theater system set ups. The signal coming from the player contains the video data as well as the audio element from the 5.1 surround sound system. Your cable box or digital satellite also works as a signal source for the home theatre.

All these signal sources can be used in one system with the proper wiring and remote programming to give you an excellent viewing or audio experience through your home theatre system.
