The “Home Cinema” is covered in detail in this chapter. Various display devices,
such as plasmas and LCDs are presented in detail as well as projection systems based
on LCDs and on Digital Micro mirror Devices (DMDs). Handling different picture aspect
ratios is important and is fully discussed. It is natural to let a large portion
of the chapter deal with audio. All analog and digital multichannel audio formats
are covered and ways of connecting the devices included in a home cinema or home
theater system are discussed thoroughly.
Chapter 11 includes 25 illustrations 5 of which are in the color insert.
A digital receiver is an excellent program source in a home cinema system.
