Footy is finally back on the big screen. And, whether a trophy is coming home or not, you can catch every minute of each game on a system built to bring you closer to the action in the comfort of your own home.
Before we get started
Before you start planning your outdoor home cinema, there are some things you need to plan and account for in advance. Lighting and weather conditions should never be overlooked. Projectors and outdoor displays perform at their best in darkened environments, so unless you plan to start your cinema experience after sundown, you’ll want to have your screen under some cover, like a porch or semi-permanent gazebo.
You’ll also need to consider what happens to your equipment when it rains (which here in the UK, should be expected). Lots of audio and visual equipment has air-circulation vents that shouldn’t be near water, so be sure to check for a clear forecast before you set everything up or find a dry enclosure that can house your equipment while leaving it room to breathe.
