Are You Ready for Some Football?
Our Home Theater Designers Weigh In With 3 Ways to Prepare For the Season
The first weekend in September kicks off the long-awaited beginning of the SEC season, closely followed by the NFL’s first games the following week. Many football fans, including the Fusion Audio + Video team, are counting down the days until football season arrives.
Yes, you’re ready for football - but is your South Carolina home? As home theater designers, we want our Greenville-area clients to have the most immersive sports-watching experience possible - whether you cheer for the Tigers or the Gamecocks. Once you’ve seen and heard every play as if you were in the stadium, you’ll never go back to a TV and soundbar setup in your living room. Below, we’ll show you three places we recommend optimizing and recommendations for each.
Media rooms were practically made for enjoying football with guests. The seating allows people to comfortably sit where they want, and the more casual feel encourages game-day lounging and snacking. Maybe you have a divided fandom or guests that prefer other sports to football? Media rooms can accommodate multiple video displays or utilize Savant’s video tiling feature to watch multiple games simultaneously, including more people in the sporty festivities.
This entertainment space demands more intensive engineering than a traditional single-directional setup, like a theater. When there are multiple viewing and listening areas to configure, each one requires keen attention. For example, media rooms often have windows, so this means you have to consider potential glare on not one, but multiple screens. Specialized lighting and motorized shades can solve this issue. And because audio needs to sound clear from multiple sources throughout the room, we can ensure optimal acoustics as well.
Media rooms are fun for gathering loved ones, but home theaters provide a more focused approach to watching the games. Much like when you’re watching a movie at the local cineplex, you’ll be in a dimmed room with the seating pointed directly at the centerpiece of the room - the large video display. Though not as casual, this setup allows you to focus on every play. We calibrate sports-centric theaters for the motion blur, extra brightness, and higher frame rate that add up to a clearer view of the game.
We’re blessed with warm weather throughout most of the year, so you’ll use your outdoor entertainment setup through all of football season and nearly all year round. Fusion installs weatherproof TVs and sound systems that withstand extreme heat, wind, dust and rain - a must for the always changing South Carolina weather. Our TV installations are not only durable but also offer the same 4K, HDR picture quality you expect indoors, plus they are graded for low sun, shade and full sun environments.
