Maintaining the temperature inside of home theater cabinets or equipment racks is critical to the proper functioning and longevity of the devices working in it. Today’s systems generate more heat than ever. Microprocessors in cable and satellite boxes generate a large amount of heat. In addition, home theater and whole house audio amplifiers have traditionally been the largest generator of heat in systems.
In order to make sure the equipment does not overheat and fail, thermal management and design is vital. We recommend using an equipment rack for the larger installations as you can take a systems approach to the thermal management of the equipment. Racks are superior for ventilation, security, and the ability to service the equipment. Cabinets and furniture can be more aesthetically pleasing, but proper care needs to be taken to ensure there is a good plan for ventilating and maintaining the proper air flow. Failure to do so will cause premature breakdown and shorten the life of the equipment. Racks can be designed into a custom space or an equipment closet to achieve any aesthetic goals of the home or business.
What is HDMI?
High-Definition Multimedia Interface, or HDMI, is a digital audio, video and control signal format defined by 7 of the largest consumer electronics manufacturers. HDMI specifications and compliance are enforced by an organization called HDMI LLC, which is controlled by representatives from the 7 founding companies. Released on 12/9/2002, it is supported by more than 300 companies. Since the beginning, HDMI has had several advantages over previous connection solutions:
The Evolution of HDMI
Since HDMI’s inception, the capabilities have changed as updates have been made to the specification. Version numbers, such as 1.2, 1.3, and most recently 1.4 have marked these updates. The majority of the changes involve an in- creased number of options for manufacturers to choose from. All new versions are compatible with electronics designed to meet previous standards, but will not add features that the existing products in your system do not have. For example, a Blu-Ray player with 1080p, built to version 1.3 spec will work with a 1080i television built to version 1.2 spec, but will not give you 1080p.
Laguna Home Theater provides many services in this industry, and one of the most common of all is mounting TV’s. As simple an idea as this may sound, often times this can get very tricky. From mounting a TV over a fireplace, to outdoor TV locations, there can be all kinds of obstacles to overcome.
When setting out to mount a TV, the goal is to make it look as though the TV belongs there. The installation, the fit, the aesthetic nature needs to flow and fit as if it was meant to be mounted at that location from the time the building was designed. This can be a challenge even when it really was designed to be there before the construction of the building. One of the quickest ways to help maintain this built-in look, is to assure all cables are hidden from sight and ran within the walls. Nothing detracts more from an installation than seeing cables hanging from a TV mounted on a wall or ceiling.
Skilled Magnolia personnel will leave the company when salaries drop to $12.56/hour, says an anonymous Best Buy district-level employee. Best Buy counters: ‘It’s not that cookie cutter.’
Skilled A/V personnel at Magnolia stores will be replaced by inexperienced high-school kids in a major reorganization, according to a district-level Best Buy employee who asked not to be identified. Apparently, the restructuring will include pay cuts of up to 40 percent. “We’ve known there was going to be restructuring, but the details are leaking out,” he says. He tells us that at least three Magnolia associates who currently make $17 to $18 per hour cited a new wage of $12.56 per hour — typical of Best Buy’s “linelevel employees,” aka the Blue Shirts, he says. Apparently, June 3 will be the last day of regular pay. Best Buy spokesperson Justin Barber cautions, “One employee’s particular experience is not necessarily the same for the [Best Buy] masses.”
If you want, you can make another home theater system out of your old one or think of methods to dispose off your old system like giving it away to someone or selling it second hand through online sales, yard sales or auctions. You can also consider approaching a company which recycles such items.
If you are considering an upgrade for your home theater system and will be throwing out your old one, you should think about recycling the electronics instead. There is more than one way to recycle old audio video equipment. You might benefit from following some of these tips:
What type of room do you need for your home entertainment.
You’ve finally decided to have a home theater installed in your home, but what type of entertainment space is best for you?
A “Media Room” is a multipurpose space which is outfitted with large flat screen television and/or projector, surround sound and flexible seating. Friends and family come here to relax, play, entertain or watch a movie together. This multipurpose room has key elements of a home theater but retains its’ original aesthetics and functionality. This space is usually the family room, but if designed properly, can be any room in your home.
