LED TV – The Brightest and Most Attractive Thing in the Room
We’ve had our eyes on LED TV technology for a while now, and have enjoyed the great benefits of the brighter picture, thin design, and energy efficiency of LED TVs since they first came on the market. With all the major manufacturers like Samsung, Sony, LG, Sharp, and Toshiba producing their own models, there’s plenty to choose from. But with other high definition display options out there, why opt for an LED television? Let’s take a look.
LED-backlighting technology offers better brightness and contrast. Overall image brightness and colour are enhanced while uncovering many of the dark details and shading that other display technology can’t reproduce as well. Simply put, LED TV lets you see more of the picture.
Because LED televisions use small light-emitting diodes, manufacturers can decrease the overall thickness of the panel – up to less than an inch thin. These sleek models mean your TV doesn’t take up valuable space in your home. Take full advantage of a super-thin, super high definition TV with the latest curved models. Curved TVs are designed to provide a more immersive viewing experience. If you’re a gamer, or someone who wants to really get into your favourite movies and shows, curved LED TVs will really draw you in to the action.
Efficiency and the Environment
LED TVs are remarkably efficient and they friendlier for the environment, using 20-30% less energy than conventional TVs. Instead of using the old mercury-filled CCFL (cold-cathode fluorescent lights) backlights that were found in LCD TV models, they use LED lights to provide backlight. So not only will an LED TV use less energy, it has less of an environmental impact at the end of its lifespan.
Your phone is no longer the smartest thing in the room. Smart TVs connect directly to the Internet, meaning that on-demand, streaming video is easier than ever before. Whether you’re watching Netflix, streaming content from your home network, or just browsing the Internet, Smart TVs from great brands like Samsung, Sony, and LG offer unprecedented control over your viewing experience.
When you want to take your home theatre to the next level and really get into the action, a 3D TV is the way to go. While some high-end TVs use autostereoscopy to provide 3D viewing without glasses (known as Auto 3D), most models require special glasses to view the 3D effects. 3D models work great in regular 2D mode too, so don’t be afraid to pick up a 3D model.
HDTV – Beyond 1080p
High definition TVs are a given these days, with 1080p models being the norm rather than the exception. If you’re picking up a small TV set for a bedroom or secondary space, it can even be cost effective to pick up a 720p model: at small sizes, you won’t even notice the difference in picture quality. But the future of high definition television goes beyond the HD you’re familiar with. HDTVs on the market come in 720p (a resolution of 1280x720 pixels), and 1080p (1920x1080 pixels), but did you know that we’re already at the next stage of high definition TV?
Go beyond the ordinary with a 4K Ultra HD television. 4K models offer resolutions starting at 3840 by 2160 pixels, making them bigger, clearer, and more defined than ever before. Your 4K model is typically a Smart TV and many of them are 3D capable too, plus they look amazing even in extra-large screen sizes. If you’re looking to set up a home theatre that will really blow them away, consider Ultra HD with a 4K screen. As more and more content becomes available, you’ll continue to be blown away by the amazing clarity and detail of Ultra HD LED television.
