You know you have a good picture on your TV when ....


My cat (stinky) no long looks out the window in my home at birds, rabbits and stuff...she sits down right in front of my Sony 53" RPTV and watches TV with me.


She is a big sports fan...

. . . the red push is fixed so skin tones look like real humans instead of blushing sunburned alpine skiers and the red football uniforms of teams like Fresno State, Nebraska, and the KC Chiefs don't glow. :D

My friends have already sworn off the public theater unless something big comes out. They said they will wait until it comes out on DVD and bring it over then. And I've only had the projector up a couple of weeks.

You know you have a good picture when you rather spend more time in your home theater room than any where else. I personally have a pretty good setup but due to working 7 days a week making me miss my home theater room very much.

I agree, i dont go to the movies anymore, last movie i went to see was star wars eposide 2, if its not kids screaming, its cell phones and beepers ringing and people talking loud.

and now we get to see 15 minutes of commercials in top of all....

Folks:

I've used the notion of "immersion" for years to describe the aural and visual experience associated with audio and video environments. Immersion means that you forget your surroundings and are intellectually and emotionally engaged somewhere else. Other folks have called this "flow."


Anyway, the concept comes from some virtual reality research I was involved in several years ago and still strikes me as a viable way to evaluate A/V set ups.


Immersion can happen with a book as well as with a $40K front projector, so it is NOT a technical measure assessing the extent to which the technology is the same as "reality." Instead it is a subjective measure that is dependent on the programming content, the setting, the technology and even the mood of the viewer/listener. More a description of the "balance" between good content (audio and/or video), the room, the tech and the people. Obviously there are some technical "thresholds" like surround sound, large screen, etc. that enhance the ability of viewers/listeners to be immersed, but that is only part of the formula.


I know I have a good picture in our current media room because I frequently find myself immersed :D in the music and visual environment such that I am no longer consciously aware of being in the extra bedroom on the second floor of my house. Many guests to our media room, whether coming to listen to multi-channel hi-res audio or watch a movie on our widescreen DLP, often describe their experience in immersion terms.


I KNOW I have a good picture! :D
