tv resolution

What resolution?

We all enjoy enjoying the highest quality image possible, so we look for the highest resolution on the screen, but it’s important to know the difference between different resolutions to know how to choose a screen.

HD Ready is 1280 x 720 pixels. You can usually see this resolution on cheap and small size TVs. It’s fine on a small screen, but at a size larger than 32 inches the quality is lost as the pixels are larger.

The Full HD resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels, the image quality is much better with large screen size. This resolution is also preferred by most television and online streaming services.

4K or Ultra HD is 3840 X 2160 pixels if we say that Full HD is of good quality, then imagine what the quality of 4K resolution is, which is 4 times higher than Full HD.

Types of TVs

Full HD TVs with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels on the screen are the most common in the British household. However, it can be said that they will soon be part of the past because manufacturers do not stop to introduce new technologies.

Currently, modern TVs have UHD technology ( 4K resolution ). This is a new standard on the market that offers better audiovisual enjoyment to the user.

Full HD TV

It is a technology for displaying screens on smartphones, TVs and all kinds of monitors. Full HD stands for ‘Full High Definition’. It is called full because of its predecessor, namely the HD Ready format, which is 1280 × 720 pixels.

Televisions with this type of screen have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. This resolution is the most common format at the moment. In addition to Blu-ray Discs, this format is also used on many online video services websites such as YouTube. It should be noted that most smartphones record video with this type of resolution.

4K TV

As we said, the aforementioned TVs have 1920 x 1080 pixel screens that actually use over 2 million pixels to create the image.

With 4K TVs, the number of pixels increases as their resolution is 3840 x 2160 or 4096 x 2160. This means that these types of screens offer a cleaner, more detailed image on the same screen size.

With higher resolution and higher pixel density, not only are more details visible, our ability to produce more saturated colours is greater.

And here’s the question of whether you can watch HD video on the new 4K TVs? The answer is yes! The TV software stretches the picture to its own resolution, adding extra pixels to ensure the highest possible quality.

HDR TV

HDR or high dynamic range is a technology that takes care of colours, contrast and brightness. With HDR on your TV, you can enjoy a crisp picture full of detail, more saturated colours and a much sharper border between the brightest white and the darkest black.

Not all new 4K TVs have HDR, despite the fact that both technologies are presented by manufacturers at the same time.

OLED TV

What is OLED and QLED screen?

OLED screens have appeared with the new 4K TVs. This new technology is replacing the well-known LED screen.

The OLED screen is made up of modern pixels (LEDs) that can emit light independently.

Thanks to this feature, some pixels can light up while others may be completely off, resulting in quite realistic and deep colours.

Samsung offers QLED TVs on the market, claiming that this type of screen is of even better picture quality.

8K TV

With the successful promotion of 4K TVs, manufacturers have begun to market even higher resolution models.

With these types of screens, the image reaches 7680 x 3220 pixels, which is four times more than the 4K resolution discussed above.

As a major advantage, 8K TVs offer very high brightness, and the high resolution of these screens enables the production of large diagonal TVs.

8K TVs are now available on the market for a high price, but this will change over time. The biggest problem is the lack of videos with such a resolution.

How big is the screen size?

You will be able to answer this question by considering the size of the room you plan to use your TV and the money you are willing to spend. For guidance, I’ll give you the following example: If you pick up a 40 inch TV, there should be at least 2 meters of distance between the TV and the position from which you will be watching.

curved tv

Flat TV or curved screen?

While flat panel TV is more aesthetically pleasing to some, other people may find curved TV more pleasing to the eye. But choosing these types of TVs also has its disadvantages, as they are more designed to be used with a stand. When mounting a wall, a curved TV takes up more space than a flat model.

advantages

  • A better sense of depth, but this is mainly seen on-screen sizes over 55 inches.
  • More beautiful design

disadvantages

  • The viewing angle is quite limited compared to a flat-screen TV. You should always look centrally for a better experience.
  • When mounting the wall, the curved screen does not fit as well as the flat screen, which fits much better into the wall.
  • To get the best visual experience, you need to buy the largest possible size.

Will you use a home theatre?

Today, most households have some type of home theatre that they can enjoy even when watching a regular television channel.

However, in the event that you will not take advantage of this type of technique, it is of great importance to choose a TV that offers not only good picture but also good sound so you do not be disappointed when you first use it.

Sound

Definitely, when you watch a movie, stream youtube music, or play your favourite video games, you’ll need good sound. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for the technological evolution that will allow all this. But we have to admit that manufacturers are making great efforts and they are currently offering the following technologies that could give you a better experience.

3D audio: This audio system offers vertical distribution between speakers, which becomes a surround experience.

Dolby Sound:  Once the audio experts realized how bad the noise of the audio recording was, they focused on creating a system that would remove the annoying noise from audio or video recording. Therefore, having this type of technology is of great importance when choosing a TV.

Acoustic Surface Audio +:  The main function of this technology is to convert audio so that it comes straight from the screen. A special mechanism located at the back of the TV produces a slight vibration, creating the feeling that the sound comes from the picture. This makes the sound heard from different places on the screen in a dialogue or special effect.

wall mounted tv

Wall mounting

If you want to mount the TV on the wall, you must choose a stand that fits the model you have. It comes in different sizes, can be fixed, tilted and rotatable. It is easily mounted with the help of dowels.

How many HDMI slots should there be?

Today, we are surrounded by a variety of devices, so it is important for your TV to offer multiple HDMI slots because you will certainly need to turn on a satellite receiver, android box or game console at the same time.

What features should it have?

Chromecast, Miracast and DLNA available

Most modern TVs have an integrated device through which you can send content to the TV directly from your mobile phone without using a cable. Miracast is a very common connection, as is DLNA, but more and more manufacturers are opting to integrate Chromecast into their TVs.

It is important for the TV to have these capabilities unless you mind connecting your phone to a TV alternatively.

Operating system and Smart TV

Finally, you have to consider the operating system used by the TV, it is the one that will give you internet access to download and use applications, games and other content. Usually, each brand has its own operating system, but there are some that use several different ones. For example, Panasonic uses FirefoxTV for some of its models, while Sony relies on the Android operating system. LG uses WebOS, and Samsung uses Tizen.
