For gamers who are looking for an edge while playing, integrating your video game console with a high performing surround sound system and an HD TV is the best way to go. So in this blog, we will learn more about stepping up your multi-person video gaming sessions with the best home theatre installations available in the market.
Video Gaming Tech Support
Our AV integrators usually get a lot of questions regarding gaming tech support when installing home theatre systems in Dubai. So to clear your doubts about what can be done and what cannot be, we will discuss in detail how to choose your audio, video, and gaming components that sync together to offer the best experience.
Choosing a TV/ projector
Integrating your gaming setup to your home theatre system starts with choosing the right display system. For the visual component, you can either choose a TV or a projector system.
High-end home theatre projectors may be pricey when compared to a TV. The main highlight of having projectors is that they have a higher frame rate than TVs which can bring in a significant difference to your gaming experience.
However, if you wish to opt for a television system, here are a few things to keep in mind.
Response time of TV: Response time is the latency that occurs when the image is formed at the source and displayed on the screen. As gaming requires a high response rate it is necessary to choose a TV that has input lags below 20ms in game mode.
Refresh rate: Refresh rate is the number of images per second that can be displayed on the screen. We recommend a TV with a native refresh rate of 120Hz for high frame-rate gamers.
Contrast: Contrast is usually shown as a ratio that shows the brightness difference between the brightest whites and the darkest blacks. As different TVs have different static and dynamic contrast ratios, it is best to check the contrast in-store before buying the TV.
TVs with Game Mode: Opt for TVs with a game mode that has a higher response rate.
Today’s games come with really good sound programs that help make the game truly immersive. From battle cries to sonic booms, these sounds add to the experience of playing the game in a home theatre. So for setting up a surround sound system that syncs with your gaming needs, here are a few things you should remember.
Modern games have a 5.1-channel or 7.1 soundtrack that is compatible with most surround sound systems. We recommend a multi-channel audio receiver that is compatible with your home theatre speakers.
Ideally, your surround sound system should have a center channel speaker, left and right speakers, subwoofer and surround speakers placed behind you so you can take advantage of directional audio cues. Further, utilize the surround settings for gaming according to the console you own.
To enjoy all the benefits of gaming through your home theatre setup, ensure that the digital audio output of your gaming console is properly configured. If you need assistance with the same, reach out to our AV integrators at Dynamic AV today.
