  • Consolidate & Centralize Your Digital Media with a Smart Home Theater System

    centralize your media with a smart home theater systemWhen the term "home theater system" first originated, it was based on creating a theater-like experience with the use of a surround sound audio system. Over the years, the term Home Theater has taken on new meaning, encompassing all types of media - from music and movies to home video, photo albums and more. What was once the ability to enjoy great sound has transformed into endless entertainment possibilities. So what exactly does a Smart Home Theater System do? Practically everything!
     
    Thanks to the advances with television and Blu-ray technology in recent years, we're now able to consolidate and centralize media from multiple devices on our home network. Rather than acting only as a devices to watch Cable TV or movies, TVs and Blu-ray players have morphed into smart media hubs equipped with features like built-in Wi-Fi, voice and motion recognition, and the ability to make video calls with people halfway around the world. You can download and use apps that allow you to keep up with sports, surf social media, stream 4K Ultra-HD movies, listen to streaming music from thousands of channels, and even play video games. If your Blu-ray player or Smart TV are equipped with DLNA compatibility, you can watch movies or listen to your music playlist from a laptop in your bedroom, wirelessly, directly on your TV and surround sound system. The days of burning discs and messy cables are over - everything can be handled wirelessly through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
     
    Screen mirroring is another great feature that allows you to share your smartphone or tablet's screen with your Smart TV. Let's say you want to watch a 45 minute documentary from the web on your big screen - just connect your phone with the TV, start playing the video on your phone and it will appear on your TV in full resolution with surround sound. This allows you to watch videos on a much larger scale, with improved audio and without the need to search for the video using the TV or Blu-ray Player's web browser (which can often be slow and fussy).
     
    Many Smart TVs and Blu-ray Players are now featuring dual-zone audio, which sometimes goes by different names. What this feature does is utilize a 7.1 channel audio system to set 2 channels to a different area. A great example of this would be to use two channels for the speakers for your outdoor patio, bar, or a basement. What's more is that while you can listen to your playlists from other devices, you can even use your smartphone as a remote control with many TVs and players. This means that when you're outside having a party (and listening to music that's both inside and outside your home thanks to dual-zone audio) you can use your phone's screen to access the user interface from the TV or Blu-ray player, select music, skip tracks, adjust the volume and more! If that's not impressive, we're not sure what is.
     
    Many people aren't aware of the true power of their Smart TVs or Smart Blu-ray Players. They can do a lot and they can do it all wirelessly. The technology is becoming more flexible, more capable, faster and more complete. When you're ready to consolidate your digital media for easy wireless access and playback on your TV and surround sound system, look into upgrading to a Smart Home Theater. For even more flexibility and universal use with any voltage, any TV and discs from anywhere in the world, look into purchasing a Region-Free Home Theater System - the ultimate in digital media flexibility.
     
    Don't take our word for it, start looking to create your own Smart Home Theater System today. You're going to be amazed by the features that come packaged with Smart TVs and Blu-ray players. It's easier than even to consolidate and centralize your music, movies, photos, and home videos with the smart interfaces they offer.

  • Region Free Sony Blu-ray Players with Playstation Now

    region free sony blu-ray players with playstation nowOne of the last features you might expect to see from a Region Free Blu-ray Player is the ability to play video games, but Sony has just changed all that. As of the time of this writing, all 2016 Sony Blu-ray Players are equipped with Playstation Now access.
     
    As a leader in both the gaming and home electronics industry, Sony made an unprecedented move by combining two of their biggest talents - home theater and gaming - into all of their new Blu-ray models, giving consumers an improved value for their dollar and leaving their competitors unable to compete. After all, Sony is the only Blu-ray manufacturer who also has their own gaming system, therefore, the only manufacturer (as of right now) able to make this ingenious power move.
     
    If you're still wondering how they've managed to do this (or what Playstation Now is and how it works) keep reading.
     
    Playstation Now is a cloud-based gaming service, based off the ever-popular Playstation Gaming Console. It allows users to subscribe and enjoy streaming gaming not only from the Playstation Console itself but also from other Sony devices, with Sony Blu-ray Players being the latest addition. It works like any internet-based subscription, and subscribers can log-in and play from anywhere (with an enabled device). Users can even save their game progress on one device and then continue their game on a different device. All you need to play is your Region Free Sony Blu-ray Player and a Playstation DualShock 4 controller. You can plug the controller directly into the Blu-ray Player's frontal USB port and game away!
     
    There are different levels of subscriptions available which include both short-term and long-term game rentals. You can subscribe and pay for nothing more than the games they choose to rent, or you can subscribe with a monthly or quarterly subscription which allows for unlimited access to all available games. Prices for monthly subscriptions start at $19.99 per month for unlimited service. Currently, there are over 400 games available on the Playstation Now service with more being added each week.
     
    The only downside is that the titles currently offered are all Playstation 3 games, which is primarily due to meeting the needs of the average user - as well as global streaming media standards. Sony wants to keep data transfer rates that are acceptable for a majority of internet users and not just those with ultra-fast internet speeds. In order to achieve quality gaming, Sony has optimized Playstation Now to work with the average internet connection but it's recommended that users have a 5mb per second for good quality experience. In the future, as technology allows and as internet speeds continue to improve, newer titles will be added.
     
    As far as we're concerned, Sony's move of combining Playstation Now with their Blu-ray Players offers a truly powerful and convenient platform; one that says a lot about where the future of gaming is headed. They've literally shed a completely new light on both home theater and gaming.
