Most everybody who’s tried to watch TV or a movie in the daytime hours knows that screen glare can be hugely unpleasant and get in the way, doing plenty of damage to clarity and making watching just plain old impossible.
Thus, screen glare is a difficult thing to fight, and even sweet home theater setups, like the one we’re about to see, must do careful testing to get it out of the way.
The first thing that you’re likely to notice is that he’s using a home theater PC, which he’s routed through his surround sound system to get a five channel setup. Plus, he’s got an Infocus projector, and he’s projecting it onto a screen that cost thirty bucks worth of materials to make himself.
He’s very clear on this point–he’s going for low cost. And I could be wrong, but I think he pulled it off. This is a pretty sweet home theater setup, because it delivers decent results for a very low price. At the end of the day, what more can you ask for?
