Remember how amazing that 3D film was that you saw in the theater this summer? How the projected images were somehow so real, and seemed to leap from the screen? Popular as they are nowadays, 3D movies have actually been around since the 1950s and while its release have always remained a crowd pleaser; they were never as popular when they left the theater… until now.

In the past, that thrill and excitement of a 3D movie was often lost in translation when transferred to the small screen of television but not anymore. The latest advances in home entertainment technology, or home cinema (home theater) have actually replicated the experience of three-dimensional in your own residence. This advancement in technology not only replicates the cinema experience but can ultimately save you money as well. So, take a seat and get out the popcorn while the folks at SignatureContractors tell you how build your own 3D Home Theater Experience.

Now in order to achieve a real 3D Home Theater Experience, that bona fide cinema experience, you’ll need to acquire the right equipment. A mere common television won’t do the trick, so we recommend the following for your home theater:

Video and Audio Input Devices

These days, the best kinds of players are Blu-Ray and are usually preferred for the home theater experience. However, you can still retain your DVD or VHS (LaserDisc or Beta anyone?) player. This also includes your typical video-game console systems. There is a growing trend in home theaters to include a HTPC (Home Theater PC) partnered with a media center software application to maintain all video and music content.

Audio Processing Devices

For audio processing devices, you can get single receiver or standalone, such as an AV receiver or you can obtain a preamplifier and sound processor for more intricate, complex surround sound formats. We would recommend this second option for sound formats like Dolby Pro-Logic, Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital EX, DTS-ES, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Audio Output

Now most home theater systems have at the very least two speakers but with advances in sound, you can easily have over ten speakers with supplementary subwoofers for those low-pitched sounds.

Video Output

This is what you’ve been waiting for, 3D television, capable of capture on a stereoscopic and multi-view scale as well as 2D plus depth, and a 3D display. This choice is fundamental for your 3D Home Theater Experience.


Believe us or not, atmosphere goes a long way in fulfilling the ultimate 3D Home Theater Experience. Be sure to have comfortable arrangement, with good seating to really hone in on that theater experience. You might also want to consider wall-treatment and sound insulation to balance the sound inside your theater. This will also prevent noise from escaping the room.
