New Technology in HD TVs


We’ve been getting a lot of inquires about the newest advancements in TV technology and possibly you’ve heard the buzz,  so here are some thoughts on the recent development. Ultra HD TVs (Also known as UHD or 4K TVs) deliver picture resolutions four times greater than previous HD TVs (1080p).  This provides spectacular image clarity through fine detail and greater texture making image playback and footage the closest it can get to realistic.

Sports coverage with 4K technology is better than actually being there, it accentuates the fluidity of motion and incomparable detail, allowing viewers the ability to actually see the emotion on a player’s face. The increased resolution helps aid the viewing of sports games, movies or gaming to a near realistic viewing experience, more detailed than ever before.

Currently there are no broadcasts that are delivered in 4K, so we have been skeptical about paying a premium for a feature that cannot be taken advantage of.  There has been such a premium on the prices of the 4K TVs that we did not think they were a good value. However, Samsung has recently released a 55” and 65” model of their 4K TVs that sell for about $3,000 and $4,000 respectively. At these prices we think the 4K TVs are the way to go. Although there is not any 4K content available, the TV’s processor adapts and upscales the video and graphics while enhancing detail to fit the 4K resolution display.   We have both the 1080p HD TV and UHD TVs in our showroom and you can see a demonstrable difference between the two in both clarity and detail that’s worth the comparison. Curious? Come see for yourself!
