Size and Resolution Matter.
Most would say straight away YES, but like anything it would depend on what you are talking about!
Yes if you are talking about a Bank Balance or the Deficit (budget time.)
But no if you are talking about your credit card limit. Or the Scales (bummer back to the Gym)
Last week I talked about TV’s but mainly about sharing audio, this week we talk about the picture.
First the size of the screen.
This will depend on the size of your room, the distance you are sitting from the screen, and even what you normally watch.
A lot of lounge rooms or theatre rooms are between 4 and 6 metres long and width can be the same. And if you have it setup correctly you will be sitting about ¾ of the way back from the screen.
To give you some idea with a 65” Screen THX recommends sitting between 2 and 3 metres.
100” Projector it is between 3 and 4.5 Metres, I have a 3.3 Metre diagonal screen and I sit about 4 metres from it but I should be back further according to the ideal.
And a lot if it comes down to preference and money.
Then there is the Resolution.
Again you would think that higher is better, and if you are watching a really good quality input, it is.
But these days so many of us watch streaming movies or in some cases even regular free to air TV.
We had a customer bring in a TV the other day because it was faulty, but when we checked it out there was nothing wrong with it. Other than, that it was a really cheap brand. The cheaper TV’s cut corners on the “Signal Processing” so if it is a good picture in it will look pretty good. But a low Resolution input will look very blocky and grainy. Usually spending more on a TV will improve the lower resolution inputs more than the Hi Def.
