CEDIA and CEA Announce New Home Theater Guidelines

Posted Wed Oct 13, 2010 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The new guide updates suggestions for current equipment and adds information on 3D TVs.

While most amateurs simply set their systems up based on rule of thumb, the pros tend to do things a bit more by the book. That book is the new CEB-23 that was released by CEA and CEDIA today.

"CEA projects more than 31 million HDTV sets and more than 2 million 3DTVs will be sold in 2010," says CEA's Brian Markwalter. "With increased consumer adoption of HD and 3DTV, accurate home theater design parameters are essential to provide consumers with a high-quality viewing experience."

The CEB-23 details information such as optimal screen sizes, lighting conditions, and other issues that crop up when installing televisions and projectors. It's also designed as an assist for those prepping for certification exams.
