8K vs. 4K vs. HD

8k tv is here

What just happened!? 4K now 8K?
Check out the Video Above to see for yourself.

4K TVs may seem relatively new, but there’s another even higher-resolution display technology already here: 8K TV. Should you upgrade? We’ve got the answers to that question and more. 

Why? Why in the world do we need 8K when it feels like 4K just became a thing? Is this a “planned obsolescence” scenario for TV? An attempt to force an upgrade before its time? And what about content? Is there any hope for 8K when we can barely get 4K? Those are all fair questions, and we have the answers. Here’s everything you need to know about 8K vs. 4K vs. HD.

How to Prepare Your New Home for the Future

Are you in the process of building a new home? 

Well, we all know that the major components of a home include: slab, frame, electrical, water, sewer, walls, roof… the list goes on. 

One comment that we here over and over again is, “I wish I had prepped the infrastructure to support more technology,” or something along the lines of, “Why didn’t I at least pre-wire?” 

While retrofitting can be possible in some cases, if you’re going to invest all that time, energy and money into a new-construction, wouldn’t it make sense to go ahead and prepare the structure to be “smart” compatible before the walls go up?

This process, called prewiring, ensures that your house has the necessary infrastructure to support the essential components of smart home technology – from lighting control to whole-house audio/video and automation systems. With the proper framework in place to support future-ready automation system, we can then add your preferred home control systems when your new property is fully built.

BENEFITS OF PREPARING THE INFRASTRUCTURE:
You may not need to connect all the pre-wire networks in your home right now but may consider future installations like CCTV cameras and outdoor alfresco speaker. This allows room for future expansions with your pre-fixed technologies. Pre-wiring your new house while under construction gives you the freedom to choose where you want things to be which you may not have when it is complete.
 
McCormick Concepts understands that building a house can be extremely stressful and that it takes time to make all of decisions.  Let us guide you through the process.

Music In Any Room, Indoors Or Out

 Multi room audio systems allow you to listen to music in numerous areas
of the home simultaneously or independently.

Multi room audio systems provide you with freedom! You can vary volume levels in each room from a control panel or by remote control. You can also have multiple zones, meaning you can play music in your bedroom while the kids watch a movie in the living area! You can even control some system from you iPhone or iPad!

Today’s speaker technology ensures aesthetic integration into your home. Speakers don’t have to be installed on your wall or ceiling, they can be installed into almost every environment and come in various designs and colours!

For example, outdoor speakers in your garden that look like simple low voltage lights or speakers sheeted directly into your ceiling that are completely invisible!

Speaker designs vary from rock shaped weatherproof speakers for your garden to invisible speakers that can be plastered into your wall. Multi room audio systems not only enhance the luxury of your home but can also increase the resale value of your property making it a great long term investment.
