Upgrade Your Home Theater to Play 4K and HDR

HDR and 4K continue to gain popularity as picture and sound quality becomes clearer and more advanced. Although some gadgets, such as TVs are upgrading to the new formats, it is not enough to have a TV with HDR and 4K capabilities. There are specific tune ups that you need to take care of in order for you to have the full 4K and HDR experience with your home theater. Let us look at the important upgrades.


Encryption Software


Encryption is a standard for most high bandwidth content. In most situations, the source of the picture content, which is the player, encrypts the information, which the TV with 4K capabilities decrypts for display. However, when you connect the home theater between the source and display, there are chances of receiving content without 4K quality on your display. You should therefore ensure that all the sound devices connected to the system have the ability to pass on this encrypted signal to the display.

Matching Content


The content is the most important upgrade you need. There are gadgets that have the capability to tune up the normal quality to HDR and 4K formats. However, even though you have this ability, the quality cannot match that of original 4K or HDR. You should therefore ensure you find original HDR or 4K quality format content, whether music or videos. This will improve the experience greatly.
 Make sure that your home theater has the ability to handle 4K decryption. When you connect your 4K-able TV to your home theater, you might not enjoy the experience if your TV does not have the ability to handle 4K content.
