Now, 4K resolutions comes with the latest in HDMI technology. HDMI 2.0 is the next generation of one of the most commonly used formats in home audio/video systems. This upgrade is designed to increase both frame rates and color for your 4K viewing. There's been a lot of confusion as to if you will need to switch out the old HDMI cables with new ones. After some research, it seems like the most recent version (HMDI 1.4) only needs an upgrade with its internal microchip on your devices and sources, not the cable. I think the sky is the limit with the newest technology coming out. It's crazy to know that TV technology has come so far from the original 16 frames per second rate.

After many responses to our first blog, “Home Automation is Dead”, we’ve decided to provide a follow-up.
Home Automation is alive and kicking! It has never been so fluent as today. In the past, when I met people, they would ask: “What do you do for a living?” I’d reply: "I design, install and program home automation or smart home systems". And then the puzzled look: “Huh?” After many attempts to explain this unknown field to them, I’d change my response to: “I do audio and video, like speakers, TVs or Home Theaters”. But I don’t just do audio and video. And I definitely don’t just do Home Theaters. We specialize in Smart Home Technology. We design the perfect system to integrate multiple electronic and network systems within a residence to provide easy operation and synergy of technology.

Apple is no stranger to innovating products to make them more advanced. The Apple Watch is not a new innovation since other smart watches are on the market from Samsung, LG, and others, but how different is it from its competitors?

Dolby has been around for 50 years and they have innovated how we watch movies in our homes. With the newest line, Dolby Atmos, being released into home theater systems, your movie-watching experience will sound better than ever before! Atmos uses a system of sound objects rather than their old sound channels optimizing how you hear details in your movies, such as car horns or a whisper right behind you. The system now allows sounds to travel around the room instead of directly at you like with older speakers.
