Are you planning to purchase an HDTV set for your home entertainment system? Gone are the days when consumers preferred traditional and bulky models. An HDTV unit is now an integral part of a home entertainment system. In addition, it has enabled consumers to enjoy a picture output similar to a cinema. The sound quality is certainly superior to a regular TV. However, it is beneficial to understand the different technical terms and features pertaining to a TV set before making a purchase decision.
Resolutions of an HDTV
HDTV is not a TV set on its own. It actually stands for the resolution aspect provided by the television model. Pixels determine the screen resolution and affect the picture quality. 720p, 720i, 1080p and 1080i are the different HD resolutions. The ‘p’ stands for progressive lines on the TV screen. Progressive lines are suitable for fast moving pictures. The presence of such lines also enables consumers to obtain a superior picture output. On the other hand, ‘i’ stands for interlaced images and is suitable for still images.
1080p – The superior resolution
1080 p models are immensely popular among the consumers due to the superior picture quality. However they are rather expensive compared to the 720p or 720i models. Consumers should also purchase efficient accessories such as TV brackets to provide optimum support. TV wall brackets are recommended for slim and compact HD models.
Select a superior HD model and safeguard it with TV brackets.
