Whether you are watching a movie or your favorite TV show, you deserve a quality viewing experience. OLED displays have a lot to offer. Their technology allows them to provide excellent image quality without requiring a backlight (as opposed to LCDs), making them a thinner and more efficient addition to your home audio video system. 

What makes OLED a watchable trend is that its unique technology isn’t terminal, meaning that it has plenty of potential for progress in the future. OLED will eventually allow for rollable and transparent TVs, making your house the home of some of the most innovative technology.

Wireless Home Audio with Zone Control

The days of limiting yourself to music in just one room are long gone! In 2018, multi-room music with distinct audio zones is the name of the game. Using a centralized system like Savant, you can pick the song and the location at the push of a button!

You can customize your listening experience at home by setting up your system to play certain music at a specific volume in one room or throughout your entire home. 

You no longer need to worry about carrying one speaker or device to every room; you can just adjust it through one system to stream through each speaker setup.

The Cloud

Okay, so this isn’t exactly a direct audio video product or technology, but it’s worth mentioning here because the cloud can work with your home AV system to help it reach its full potential. The cloud will certainly play a role in 2018’s progression of smart home technology

The “cloud” is just a way of referencing the giant servers that can hold larger amounts of information, relieving the work from local servers or within a device itself. This means that rather than worrying about whether you have enough storage locally or on your phone, tablet or anything else storing your music and movies, you can alternatively access the cloud. 

The cloud is a wireless solution to storage concerns: simply use cloud technology to access your entertainment.

These are just a few standout trends to keep an eye on in the new year. You may have noticed that while they are distinct pieces of technology, they can all work together within an audio video system to provide the experience you’re looking for in your smart home. 2018 will be about taking a large picture approach and integrating various aspects of home technology to work seamlessly with one another.
