Tech for the Movie Lover!
A UHD TV
Tech for the movie lover is not complete without a UHD TV! UHD stands for ‘Ultra High Definition’ – these TVs are a step up from your regular HD TV. While HD TVs have a resolution of 1080 pixels, your average UHD TV has almost 4000 pixels (hence why they are sometimes called 4k TVs). Buying one of these TVs could drastically improve the clarity of your movies.
There is a range of UHD TVs out there on the market. Some of these are also smart TVs, allowing you to browse the internet on them. You’ll also find curved UHD TVs on the market – these TVs help to allow a better picture when viewed at an angle.
Media streamers are small consoles that allow you to access a range of apps on your TV. They include the likes of Amazon Fire, Google Chromecast, and the Now TV streamer. If you haven’t got a smart TV or modern games console, one of these devices could be essential for helping you to connect to various movie streaming platforms. Even with a smart TV, you could find that it expands your options.
There are lots of comparison guides online that can help you to find the right media streamer for your budget and needs. It’s worth also researching into the types of apps that you can download onto these streamers – if you’re getting a Firestick, you’ll want to look into Amazon apps. With the right apps, you could have access to any film you want.
Home Cinema Speakers/Sound Bar
Want to make your living room feel like a cinema? With surround sound speakers, you can achieve just this.
A home cinema system is the most common and traditional option, which involves placing multiple speakers around the room. When choosing this option, it’s best to go wireless so that you don’t have to trail cables everywhere. These speakers will help to make the sound feel as if it’s coming from all around you.
A soundbar could be another option. These are cheaper and often easier to set up – rather than having multiple speakers, you simply place one speaker below the TV. The speaker is designed to bounce the sound off the walls, so it’s pretty much like having surround sound (although not quite as powerful).
All-in-one players are useful tech for the movie lover who may still have physical movie libraries. These players are able to play DVDs and sometimes video cassettes, as well as being able to store various digital multimedia files. It’s a more compact and convenient alternative to having a separate DVD player, video player, and external hard drive.
You can shop for these multimedia devices online. Make sure to choose one that supports all your desired media.
