THE BIG GAME

The food, fans, fun, or the Superbowl. Hosting at your home is easier than any major holiday. It's one night. The kids don't need a sitter. It's socially acceptable to serve hot dogs. No one argues over what channel or show to watch. Most guests' expectations are a nice TV set up. And beer. A clean house is a bonus. But all sports fans appreciate the immediacy, the crisp HD vision and HD sound, and wifi that delivers at a nonstop 40-yard sprint. Have it year-round.

Range of a Sports Fan for Your Home Theater

  • NFL RedZone
  • March Madness
  • Other college sports (if your kid chooses rugby at college, that's probably not on CBS primetime)
  • Hockey
  • Basketball
  • Golf Simulators
  • Kinetic and stationary gaming setups (think Switch)
  • Gym (more on that in a minute)

WIDE (RADIO) RECEIVER: ORIGINAL SUPERBOWL FOR LIVE TV

In 1919, one of the first-ever real-time sports broadcasts took place in Dallas. A broadcast announcer read telegrammed updates of a football game over the radio! It wasn't technically live (and someone did the same thing for a Jayhawks game in 1911) but more sports were about to follow.

WATCHING THE GAME HAS CHANGED

A college baseball match between Columbia and Princeton in 1939 was the first sports tv broadcast. There were fewer than 1,000 TVs at the time. Sports is now available on a host of screens (more on that in a minute) and a host of streams.

A long-running dispute between the NFL and a Pennsylvania man over a rough home recording of Superbowl 1 may be about to end--if the Kickstarter works. That original Superbowl 1 scrum was the Green Bay Packers versus the Kansas City Chiefs. And it took place in this year's hosting city: sunny LA.

At Superbowl 1, two networks covered the action, and the stadium wasn't even full. Today, streaming rights for the NFL season fetch hundreds of millions.

One thing hasn't changed, however. That first gridiron rumble, by the numbers, had one-quarter of the US tuning in. Today, 100 million people, well over one-fourth, watched the best teams in the country go at it in 2020. It's a crowd-pleaser year after year.

THE MATCH HAS CHANGED TOO

In the 30s, 40s, and 50s, before face masks and NFL RedZone, the first major analytics guy hammered into the rulebook to drive more offensive plays. “Each game should provide a maximum of entertainment insofar as it can be controlled by the rules and officials,” was the thinking for the NFL. For crowd-pleasing events, higher scores and more play-action were needed.

The technology of the match has also changed a lot. Just look and see.

21st-Century Metrics, Analytics, and More

  • The Microsoft Surface Pro tablets for coaching staff were a serious upgrade. They replaced field-of-play images sent to the sidelines through a color fax machine.
  • After a QB was caught with a crude radio earpiece in the 50s, the league banned them for decades. Today, coaches are allowed to have Wi-Fi communication with players on the field.
  • Radio-signal chips are embedded in shoulder pads and the game ball to track those analytics.
  • Of course, the real-time fantasy football updates during NFL broadcasts through Xbox.

HOME THEATER ADVANTAGE

Whether it's soccer, Youtube tv, the full sports pack, Real Housewives, or reality shows about food trucks competing, enjoy it. The Home Theater Association has about 20 certified members in all of Texas. Evolve made the cut and only the top one-fifth of HTA applicants get in.

Evolve's Audio Package Brands and Installs

  • BeSpoke speakers are hand-crafted in Oregon for buyer customizations. The sound industry revolutionary Dolby's latest iteration called Atmos is available through their new Triad models.
  • Sonance is a premium home mainstay in architectural speakers. In-wall, in-ceiling, and bookcase models leave plenty of room for Wii action, for your Golf Simulator, or your home gym.
  • Interior and exterior-rated speakers. We can engineer a freestanding or recessed speaker sound experience. In-wall and in-ceiling are available indoors and out. Plus, surface mount, pendant, and other creative options.

The video experience can also be architecturally integrated into your home's layout and your taste. Screen innovations is a cinema-quality projection screen maker. Many active homeowners (and especially those with young kids) value a retractable and out-of-the-way entertainment option. SI does not sacrifice image quality and they do have UHD projection options. A smooth, motorized open and close setting is available too.

Seura smart screens have options that speak, rather than add on to key features. Indoor and outdoor models rate up to 8K UHD. Consider your needs and where the screen will be. The amount of natural light, the angle of the sunlight, distance from the screen, all of these go into Evolve's careful calculation to create the best possible visual experience for you. The newest concave style curved monitors or classic flatscreens are only the starts.

STREAMING LIVE GAMES FOR THE SPORTS FAN (AND THEIR JUNIOR VARSITY)

Most home WiFi setups are a simple two-way street. In and out. One lane each. Until recently, most smart home devices or appliances had to take this route. Mobile devices and streaming were all on this same street too. Today, devices can communicate with each other and hopscotch around that jammed-up street. The newer "mesh" networks use Zigbee and Z-wave.

For both standard in-out digital signals and the others, Evolve has an 8-lane freeway of routers. Package's top three model routers can operate at 1 Gigabit per second. In a practical example, that's an hour's worth of UHD 4K Netflix data crammed into one minute.

Keep the kiddos occupied with Peppa Pig in the same room as the crystal-clear, play-by-play, call-by-call, ad-by-ad super bowl.
