5 Benefits of Installing a Dedicated Home Theatre

With life getting so chaotic and busy each passing day, rarely people like the ruckus of booking the tickets, finding a parking space and spending odd hours at the cinema. To cut down the clutter, nowadays, staying at home and spending time with family while watching stuff on a personal home theatre screen is just the way to do it!

We, at Lumina Screens, love designing your screens and we find it even more amazing when you get a whole cinema-like experience at the comfort of your home. So here are the top five benefits to having your personal dedicated home theatre.

1. Video games go to an all-new level

Watching that favorite TV star come alive on your big screen or getting excited to every stroke of your much-loved game is just alright, but with home theatres, gaming goes to an all-new level. Playing video games become nothing short of an immersive experience, with a crisp larger than life imagery and realistic sound. So whether you’re the Lara Croft or Commander Shepard, if you play it on your home theatre screen, you never want to go back!

2. Binge-watching your favorite series

Home entertainment doesn’t just mean movies anymore. Netflix, Prime, and other streaming services offer incredible content to let us soak into drama forever. Indie documentaries, must-watch television series, and original content films are now added to the mix to offer something to everyone.

3. It’s all about sounds and acoustics

When you design a home theatre, you have to start thinking about the sounds and acoustics funda early on – this makes a very important part of having the best viewing experience. Your space, speaker size, furniture arrangement – all contribute to how sounds behave in a room. Unlike anywhere else, a carefully created home theatre, won’t give you variable sound effects or a scratchy experience.

4. You can choose your own projection screen

The fun part is just this! While in a home theatre, you can choose your own décor, save yourself from standing in the queue of buying overpriced popcorns, it doesn’t just end there. Having a dedicated home theatre allows you to choose from a range of projection screen options best suited to your need. Lumina Screens through its myriad options offers its viewers a better movie viewing experience and ensures high-performance efficiency. Right from Color Pro – White and Grey screens to acoustic transparent projection screens, we have got you covered.

5. Play-in with technology

Home automation and entertainment technology have turned easy and fun to use in a true sense. Integration with digital advances such as online streaming and smart home controls have taken home theatres way ahead than it was. For the technophile in all of us, a home theatre makes way for technology and entertainment to give a one-of-a-kind experience.

The Bigger Picture: Basics to Projection Screens

‘It’s a mere white cloth’, you would say, but no, actually a projection screen is more than just that! It’s a sophisticated, technical fabric meant to provide the viewers with an immersive cinematic experience.

Thinking of getting a projector, anytime soon? Well then don’t forget the screen! No offense to televisions: TVs are simply awesome, but if you are game for an epic entertainment experience, then, by all means, you need a projector screen. No matter what your purpose is, the right choice of a projection screen can a world’s difference. And if you are confused about which one to settle for, its time we take you down the rabbit hole and introduce you to the basics of projection screens.

In a layman’s language, projectors are really a two-piece system. So there’s going to be a projector- the so-called attention-seeker and the lowly screen that actually lets you see the image. And while there are several things to consider before nailing down a perfect screen, it’s important to realise that the whole stuff revolves around three basic things.


Whether it is your favourite football game you are watching or a much-awaited blockbuster, there’s nothing more appealing than a massive screen. But catch your breath, before you really get excited about owning a screen SO big. There are certain factors that will influence what size screen you should go for. These include the size of your wall, your viewing distance and also your projector. With a scalable solution that suits rooms of any size and purpose, Lumina Projection Screens makes this decision easier than ever.

Aspect Ratio

This factor comes on number 2. An aspect ratio is the proportion of width and height of the image projected on the screen and is typically expressed in numbers like for example 4:3. Number 4 here is the width of the image and the second number 3 is the height. Hence, 4:3 would mean that for every four inches of image width, you would have 3 inches of height.

The aspect ratio on your projector screen has a lot to do with what you plan to watch and what is the purpose of your projection screen. It also becomes a helping factor while determining what screen to buy.

Screen Gain

Gain refers to the reflectivity measurement of your screen and the gain number is the light ratio that’s reflected from the screen in comparison to the light reflected from a standard whiteboard. Screens with a gain of 1.0 reflect the same amount of light as that from a board. As the gain number increases, the percentage of light reflection increases as well.

Gain is measured from the vantage point of the screen – from where it is at its brightest. Screen brightness starts to fall as one moves away from this point.

Whether you should select a screen with a higher gain or lower depends on your purpose. While high-gain is more recommended for cinema owners, for a  videophile with a home theatre, a low gain screen is a more sensible option providing a wider viewing angle, better contrasts and uniformity.

For screens that match your needs, Lumina Screens presents several suitable options. Lumina’s Projection Screens aim to deliver a  cinema-theatre like experience at the comfort of your homes. With a new product line for each category, from movie buffs to corporate offices and auditoriums, we have optimized our best-in-class surfaces for top-quality cinema-like viewing experiences.
