Home theater and multipurpose AV systems are as popular as they’ve ever been due in part to several factors.
First, the pandemic forced people to spend more time at home and because people were forced to stay home many homeowners decided to invest into home entertainment systems that include AV systems.
Secondly, well before the onset of COVID-19 home theater was surging because of new technologies that include 4K video, high dynamic range (HDR) video, and immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. These technologies help today’s AV systems to deliver better, more Hollywood-like images, and audio experiences that are closer to real life through the ability of height channels to produce sound from overhead.
One element that integrators can add to these modern AV systems is motion, and one of the top providers of AV motion technology is the Canadian manufacturer D-Box.
