Regaining Peace of Mind

Personal safety and security. It’s weighing on everyone’s mind. Whenever we send our children off on the school bus, attend a crowded sporting event, sit alongside our neighbors in our house of worship, join our families in our own living rooms, or enter our credit card information for an online order; more and more we are feeling vulnerable to crime.

4K, HDR, 3D…There are a lot of choices out there that offer stunning imagery, so how do you know which is the “best” and which one is right for you?  There’s actually a lot more to it than pixels alone.
