MADVR ENVY INTRODUCES AUTO-SUBTITLE MANAGEMENT AND WHY IT MATTERS

Subtitle Management with Scope Screens

We recently covered how our non-linear stretch (NLS+) platform makes it easy to fill your entire screen, regardless of its aspect ratio (AR) and the AR of the content. In case you are not familiar, a "scope" screen generally refers to a screen that is wider than the standard HDTV 16:9 aspect ratio.

In today's newsletter, we're changing gears a bit to answer a related question that often comes up about subtitles - specifically how to handle subtitles within the black bars in scope movies.

Creating an Experience Through Sound in Your Luxury Home Theater

When we first speak with clients about their dedicated, custom-designed home theater systems in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and throughout the world, the first topic on most people's minds is the visual component.

LEARN HOW A PROFESSIONAL INTEGRATOR COMBINES RECORDING STUDIO EXPERIENCE AND INDUSTRY-LEADING SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY FOR THE ULTIMATE HOME THEATER.

Movies are a unique medium, one that takes up all the senses and stirs the soul. The film medium has been described as storytelling combined with painting, photography, music, dance, and theater. A film is powerful magic, making us cheer, cry, and laugh -- often all at the same time.

The cinema itself can be thought of as a temple dedicated to the singular act of being transported. The art form deserves more than an insufficient screen with less than stellar sound. Bob Balaban, the actor and producer, sums this feeling up nicely:

“I mean, the whole idea of movies was it was special to go to see - you went to a movie theater to see something that was magical and amazing, in a very special location.”

Read on to learn how our home theater systems exceed your expectations for your Naples, FL, entertainment space.
