Gift Guide: Screens & Projectors Any Movie Enthusiast Will Love
We’ve Made a List and Checked It Twice—Here’s the Best in OLED, 4K, and 8K
Shopping for a TV or film lover? Maybe they binge the latest shows faster than you can hear about them. Maybe they own a framed poster of Pulp Fiction. Or perhaps they simply appreciate excellent image quality and would love a home cinema experience.
If you’re looking to treat the movie or TV buff in your life to the best-of-the-best, check out our high-end gift ideas below. From 8K TVs to HD projectors, here are our picks from our audio-video center in Lighthouse Point, FL.
Sony Master Series
Sony’s new league of premium TVs, the Master Series, brings the sophisticated movie studio experience into your home. With “lens to living room” picture quality, you’ll see brighter colors, darker blacks, and a Netflix-calibrated mode that tweaks images as you’re watching. When scenes cut to black, the screen will be a perfect jet black, not muddled with the previous image.
There are five screens in the Master Series, ranging from 4K LED, OLED, and 8K definition. 4K LED will look excellent, but OLED’s self-illuminating pixels will improve color range, brightness, and contrast, with faster refresh rates. And of course, 8K will bring you to the clearest image available on the market.
Just when most of us were getting used to the idea of 4K resolution, 8K has arrived. If you’d really like to spoil someone for the holidays this year, you can’t do better than 33 million pixels. That’s sixteen times clearer than 1080p, standard HD.
While 8K video content is still scarce (we’ll see more of it in years to come), Sony’s Z9G screen in 8K uses X-Reality PRO processing to upscale images closer to true 8K. Samsung’s 8K AI Upscaling does the same, sharpening and defining pictures to see more details in real-time. 8K screens can be massive—up to 98 inches! They’re an investment, but your loved one will know they have the best TV resolution on earth.
Looking for something a little more unique? A projector system is fun for any film fanatic. Projectors used to get a bad reputation for looking washed out and faded, but new HDR and native 4K projectors bring a razor-sharp image to homes everywhere. Movie theaters use projectors—why not enjoy that quality and wide dimensions at home?
Screen Innovations, the shading and screen manufacturer, produces screens customized to your environment. So, if the projector is mounted in a room with ambient light from windows, a black screen with more gain would be beneficial.
