Choosing Your Home Theater Components
How to Select the Best Screen Size
This is probably the most often asked question we get when it comes to home theaters. The general answer we have is as big as you can make it. If you are going with a front projector, you’ll need to decide if you want to go with a normal HDTV type screen or a full movie experience widescreen.

Home Theater Screens – What You Need to Know About 8K Resolution
Using basic math, it may seem like 8K would provide double the resolution of 4K, but that isn’t the case. Since we’re talking two dimensions here — horizontal lines and vertical lines — it’s actually a whopping 16 times the pixels of HD and four times the pixels of 4K: 8K resolution equates to 7680 x 4320, or 33 million pixels (33,117,600, to be exact), instead of 3840 x 2160 (8,294,400 pixels).
8K is four times as many pixels as 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) and sixteen times as many as Full HD (1080p). 8K has over 33 million pixels, which leads to sharper visuals; in fact, you cannot distinguish the pixels on the screen. 8K requires powerful graphics card to push more than 33 million pixels at 60Hz refresh rate.
8K monitors are expensive. Not just the price tag, but you will also need hardware upgrades too. Currently, no display interface can handle 8K resolution. The Dell UltraSharp 8K monitor uses two DisplayPort cables to run at full speed. Therefore, if your GPU doesn’t have dual DP ports, prepare to stick with only 30fps or 4K at 60Hz.
8K monitors remain the ideal choice for photo and video editing. The level of detail, color accuracy, and pixel density in these monitors is unmatched. You can manipulate high-resolution images with ease and get the best results than ever before.
Getting the 8K onto your new 8K TV is also a bit of a challenge. Ideally, the TV’s internal apps will be 8K compatible. Note, currently there is no 8K content from the likes of Netflix or Amazon.
