An objective, data-based video engineering process resolves many issues, including:

  • Lack of on-screen brightness and contrast for varying room usages such as day vs. night viewing
  • A projected image that doesn’t properly fill the screen

We stop you:

  • Spending hours trying to pick video components for your room based on subjective online or magazine reviews.
  • Wasting money on equipment that doesn’t meet image brightness requirements.
  • Being frustrated that your system’s performance doesn’t meet your expectations.

The Issues We Solve Through Video Equipment Engineering

The Benefits Of Video Equipment Engineering

  • Experience video like never before.
  • Get the best performing video equipment for YOUR budget.
  • The content fits precisely to the screen, with no black bars.
  • Projector and screen combination meet the objective engineering requirements of YOUR room and varied room usages / ambient lighting scenarios.

What’s Included?

Acoustic Frontiers’ Video Equipment Engineering service helps you create a high-performance projection system for your home theater. The first step in our process is to understand all the different ways you will use the theater. Then, we consider each scenario, determining image brightness and contrast targets and applying industry best practices from CEDIA, ISF, THX, and SMPTE to determine projector and screen specifications. 

 

What’s included:

  • On-screen brightness calculations for YOUR projector and screen combination, and comparison to industry targets for standard and high dynamic range content, as well as for differing levels of ambient light. Calculations include consideration of real-world post-calibration projector lumen output, screen gain, and impact of lens zoom, as well as anamorphic lenses.
  • Minimum and maximum screen-to-projector distances.
  • Maximum vertical placement of projector above the top of the screen.
  • How to use manual or motorized two-way and four-way masking options to remove black bars.
  • Options for the use of video processors to manage aspect ratio changes.

If you have a sound isolated room, the projector will be the noisiest item in the room, and fan noise will be distracting. Add our hush box design services to your project to solve this problem!

What Do Our Clients Think?

“Several years ago, I installed an expensive home theater in my family room. The system never performed at the level I expected for the price paid. I hired Acoustic Frontiers to evaluate my audio system, and together we implemented several changes. I cannot underestimate the before and after difference. My wife, who has little patience for appreciating subtle, iterative improvements in performance, instantly appreciated the benefits and deemed them well worth the cost.”

Mr. Bransten, San Francisco, CA

"Acoustic Frontiers were very patient and helpful when it came to selecting speakers and equipment for the room. As a vendor for a multitude of companies, I really felt that I was getting objective advice. They helped me select everything from the speakers, AVR, to even the projector and screen! The end result was nothing short of amazing, and my family and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Acoustic Frontiers receives my highest recommendation. We can’t thank you all enough!”
