Hey, today I’m going to be talking about 4K, the new technology that’s revolutionizing home television viewing, much the same way high definition did years ago.
I went to CES to learn more about these TVs for myself. First of all, what is 4K? 4K is a resolution.
It’s how many pixels are on that display. What you’re going to get with 4K is a lot of detail, a beautiful, sharp picture. So simply put, more pixels means a better view, and 4K has a lot more pixels. That’s why it’s called Ultra HD. Picture sharpness is the most significant difference you’ll notice when comparing 4K TVs with regular HDTVs. Everything looks more precise and more lifelike. Even close up or on a bigger screen, you can’t fake more pixels. Where 4K pays off is with bigger TVs, the 55-inch, and larger category.
The bigger your panel is, the more critical it is to have all those additional dots that are those pixels so that it looks as high as it possibly can. TV experts have long recommended buying the biggest HDTV you can afford, so all that definition doesn’t go to waste. Well, 4K has taken this idea to the next level. The screens are more prominent, but the pixels are smaller. And we’re talking huge screens. 70-inch, 80-inch, we’re going to go up to 98 inches this year.
When considering a 4K TV for your home, remember too that it has a great picture from multiple viewing angles. So there’s a catch with 4K. A lot of TV shows and movies aren’t yet available in Ultra HD resolution. Most media will get there eventually, just like with the transition from standard definition to high definition.
But there is a solution in the meantime. The fact of the matter is there still isn’t going to be a lot of content available this year. But what’s great about LG TVs is we can up-convert any programming to 4K. So everything that you watch is going to look gorgeous. Now for the good news, excellent 4K content is on the way. Most notably, Netflix is building a library of ready-to-watch 4K content for streaming. They are promising that all of their new programmings will be available in 4K. And YouTube is following suit. Be sure to do your research before buying, as 4K TVs have to be compatible with these streaming services, and you’ll need a high-speed router. All the streaming 4K content that will be available this year, you’ll be able to get on LG’s 4K TVs, because we have the proper decoders built. If you’re in the market for a new TV, 4K technology is a feature worth checking out. At the very least, I’d recommend going down in person to see it at a local retailer. It’s pretty stunning.
Maintain a strategic distance from Vivid mode
The preset mode to maintain a strategic distance from is the Vivid mode or Dynamic mode (some of the time called Standard mode). This setting drives up shine and shading settings to their greatest yield, obscuring points of interest and overstating brilliant hues.
So why would that be a Vivid mode? It’s planned as an in-store show mode to enable a set remain out beside the many different TVs in a brilliantly lit large box store. Be careful: Your game might be left in the Vivid mode as a matter of course.
How might I calibrate the photo?
Soneira recommended adopting a basic strategy if you need to calibrate the photo further: Use some high-determination still pictures you’re acquainted with, for example, shots of family and companions, and put them on a USB stick that you can connect to the TV. At that point, when you change the photo, you can see exactly how it’s influencing the picture.
There are likewise a couple of motion pictures on 4K Blu-beam circles with HDR bolster. The best one we’ve discovered so far is The Martian. As you influence changes, to take a gander at the white zones of spacesuits and orange tints of the outsider scene.
Also, you can buy test plates that contain a large number of test designs that can be utilized to alter the photo. Among those is the $30 Spears and Munsil HD Benchmark second Edition Blu-beam circle. Specifically, search for differentiating test designs that will enable you to set the correct point for appearing whatever number shades of dark in the photo as could be expected under the circumstances, which, thus, will be reflected in rendering better picture subtle elements.
