Bringing Cinema Home

Personal-cinema architect John Bishop discusses how he rates the performance of commercial cinemas with a 100-point scale, which provides a benchmark for how home cinemas should perform. In this episode, he focuses on the visual aspects, including viewing geometry, flat-field uniformity, light levels, screen materials, viewing angles, and other factors. Next, he offers ratings of various reference and commercial cinemas as well as some of the best home cinemas he has worked on. Plus, answers to chat-room questions and more.

Great episode as always, and I love John's enthusiasm for this stuff. Any chance we can get more details on how his home-made masking system works? Looks pretty slick and easy to use.


JVC X500R, Silver Ticket 120-inch screen (as a 2.4:1 CIH+IMAX setup, with 3-way DIY masking), Denon 4520, Oppo 203, Roku Ultra, Google Chromecast, Logitech Squeezebox
SVS Prime Bookshelf (LCR), SVS Prime Satellite (x2 Surround), JBL E10 (x2 Surround Back) SVS-SB2000 (Dual)
