HDTVs may get a lot of the glory in our industry; but, when it comes to home theater, nothing beats a front-projection system to truly re-create that cinematic experience. Front projection also represents the best value in large-screen home entertainment. A 100-inch-plus TV could cost you six figures, but these days you can get a good 1080p big-screen projection system for under two grand. For some people, though, the thought of assembling a front-projection system is daunting.
2017 is the year that DLP front-projection fans got in on the 4K action. I recently reviewed the $8,999 BenQ HT8050, the first DLP projector on the market to use Texas Instruments' 4K DLP chip. Optoma was second to market with its new UHD60 and UHD65 DLP projectors, which carry much lower price points than the BenQ--$1,999 and $2,499, respectively. They also carry a more comprehensive list of features.
In mid-September, Apple finally entered the 4K game with its introduction of a 4K-friendly Apple TV and the addition of 4K movie downloads to the iTunes Store. From a hardware perspective, Apple's 4K offering may land in the category of "too much, too late." The Apple TV 4K includes the key features it needs to keep pace in the market: voice search/control through Siri, compatibility with HomeKit smart home products, gaming features, and HDR support (both HDR10 and Dolby Vision).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
