HDTV – What is it?
High-definition television, or HDTV, is a new way of broadcasting TV programs that is far superior to “regular” TV in both picture and sound. Why the difference?

  • High-definition (HD) broadcasts use a digital signal, while the standard TV signals you’ve been watching for years are analog. Digitals signals can support a higher resolution. HDTVs have resolutions of 1280x720 pixels or better.
  • HD broadcasts support 5.1 channel Dolby Digital surround sound, which is similar to the sound you hear in movie theatres. You may already have a TV that offers surround sound. However, you probably only experience true surround sound when you watch DVDs and videos – not when you’re watching broadcast TV. HD broadcasts feature true surround sound. That means you can enjoy true surround sound with your favorite TV programs in addition to DVDs and videos.  

Key terms:

An integrated HDTVhas a built-in digital ATSC tuner and has resolution of 720p or higher. Since 2007, the majority of new televisions sold have been HDTVs. That is because beginning March 1, 2007, all television reception devices imported into the U.S. or shipped via interstate commerce must contain a digital tuner. Thus, all new TVs sold by retailers should be equipped with a digital tuner. Nearly all also have HD quality resolution, deeming most new TVs to be HDTVs. To receive and display any free and available over-the-air HD broadcasts on your HDTV, all you need to do is purchase an HD antenna. Or you can simply plug into your existing digital cable or satellite set-top box; however, some carriers may charge extra for an HD-compatible set-top box or require you to subscribe to additional programming to receive HD broadcasts.

Contrast Ratio -  This refers to the difference between the brightest whites and the darkest blacks a TV can display.  The key thing to consider is how “black” your blacks will be. A higher contrast ratio means a deeper black. In addition, a higher contrast ratio also means you can have more ambient light in the room without washing out the on-screen color. As of 2006, contrast ratios range from 300:1 to 5000:1 for home theatre projectors to 10,000:1 on high-end plasma and LCD TVs.   

Frame rate – A TV’s frame rate describes how many times it makes a complete picture on the screen every second. Again, the higher the number, the faster images are processed. This makes a difference when watching fast-moving action or playing fast-paced video games with lots of action. The two most common numbers you’ll see are 720p and 1080i.

What do the “I” and “p” mean? The “I” indicates that the TV draws images using an interlaced method. The “p” indicates that the TV draws images using a progressive scan method. In general, progressive scan renders images faster and produces a more detailed, film-like image.

HDMI – High-Definition Multimedia Interface, or HDMI, is a new type of connector cable that carries both all-digital audio and video signals over a single cable, eliminating the need for separate cables to connect your audio and video components. No more tangled mess of cables! In addition, HDMI cables deliver the best possible digital quality signals for both audio and video.

Response Time -  This refers to the time it takes a pixel to change state from black-to-white-to-black again. In general, the faster the response time, the better the picture, especially when viewing fast action in movies, sports, and video games. Plasma and CRT televisions have virtually instantaneous response time, while LCD models tend to be a bit slower. The slower response time can result in what is referred to as “image lag” or a slight blurring of fast-moving images. As of 2007, a “fast” response time is considered to be anywhere from 8msec to 3msec.


Q. What different types of HDTVs are available and how do they compare to one another?
A. Rear Projection DLP, and Flat Panel LCD, Plasma and LED have their pros and cons.

Rear Projection (DLP)

  • Good to excellent picture quality
  • Sizes from 40" to 73"
  • Generally less expensive than flat panel TVs
  • Bigger, heavier, bulkier than LCD and plasma models
  • Flat Panel LCD

  • Excellent picture quality
  • Available in small screen sizes (under 32")
  • Can double as computer monitor
  • Thin, lightweight
  • Generally less expensive than plasma
  • Relatively narrow viewing angle
  • Pixel response can be slow, causing blurred motion, particularly when using the screen for video gaming or other high-demand activities
  • Flat Panel Plasma

  • Superior picture quality to LCD, though it is debatable
  • Screen sizes up to 70" or more
  • Thin, lightweight
  • Wide viewing angle; looks good from almost any angle
  • Faster pixel response; better for gaming and fast action sports
  • Generally more expensive than LCD
  • Slight risk of "burn-in", in which a static image becomes "burned" into the screen permanently
  • Q. What type of TVs use a lamp?
    A. Rear Projection DLP TVs use a lamp, with the typical lamp life ranging from 5,000 to 8,000 hours. With normal use, that translates to many years of TV viewing. You may never need to replace your DLP TV lamp (depending on how long you own the TV), but if you do, the typical replacement lamp costs around $200.

    Q. What is screen resolution?
    A. Resolution refers to the number of pixels being used to project an image. In general, the larger the numbers the better the resolution and the picture quality. Current HD programming tops out at 1920 x 1080 pixels. In fact, HD is generally about six times sharper than standard TV, and can be as much as ten times greater.

    Q. What's the difference between 720p, 1080p, and 1080i?
    A. 720 and 1080 refer to horizontal pixel counts. Both 1080p and 1080i HD broadcasts offer higher resolution than 720p broadcasts. The "i" indicates that the TV draws images using an interlaced method. The "p" indicates that the TV draws images using a progressive scan method. In general, progressive scan renders images faster and produces a more detailed, more film-like image. This means 1080p offers the highest quality currently available.

    Q. What do the "i" and "p" mean?
    A. The letters "p" and "i" indicate the picture-scanning method - progressive or interlaced. In interlaced scanning, the on-screen image is created in two split-second passes, drawing all the odd-numbered lines first then going back to fill in all the even-numbered lines. In contrast, progressive scanning draws each frame sequentially in a single pass to create a smoother, cleaner picture. So, progressive scanning is theoretically better than interlaced scanning.

    Q. What do I need to watch HD broadcasts?
    A. Your choices for watching HDTV are via over-the-air broadcasts, cable or digital satellite.

  • Q. What's the difference between a "3D-ready" and a "3D-capable" TV?
    A. 3D-ready TVs come with the necessary emitter built-in; 3D-capable TVs do not, so you'll need to add on a separate one for 3D-capable TVs.

    Q. What do I need to watch 3DTV at home?
    A. You'll need a TV labeled "3D-ready" or "3D-capable", a pair of 3D glasses for each person watching, and a 3D video source such as a 3D Blu-ray movie.

    What factors should I consider when contemplating the size of television I need?

  • First, how will the television be used? Will this be the primary television used, or a secondary television? For most primary use we recommend a television that is 40” or larger. There are many applications for smaller size television including bedrooms, kitchens, offices, and small rooms. For most bedrooms we recommend a television that is 32” or larger. For most kitchens we recommend a television that is 24” or under, depending on your cabinet height.

    What factors should I consider when contemplating the type of television I need?

  • The two main factors to consider are… where will the television be used, and what are the potential viewing angles? LED televisions offer a brighter overall picture and less energy consumption, followed by Plasma’s and LCDs. Plasmas generally offer the best black levels (contrast) and the widest viewing angles. Finally LEDS & LCDs are often the best option for use in a setting affected by direct sunlight. LEDs are the thinnest and lightest televisions, so they have the most flexibility for placement options, are easier to move around and mount on your wall.

    What is a “Refresh Rate” and why is this important?

  • TVs today offer refresh rates from 60Hz,120Hz, 240Hz and 600Hz. This Hz (Hertz) simply refers to the speed at which the television reproduces each image per second therefore producing the overall viewing experience. The larger the Hz the faster the picture is reproduced, so consider 60Hz a good refresh rate and anything 120Hz and over the best. This is important when viewing fast action scenes or sports events as the faster refresh rates prevent loss in clarity or blurring. This is particularly important on larger size televisions.

    What is “Contrast Ratio” and why is this important?

  • Contrast ratio can be simply defined as the difference between a televisions ability to produce its brightest image and it darkest image. This is important because it directly relates to a televisions ability to produce the sharpest, most colorful, and most accurate overall picture quality.

    What are the various ports available and why are they important?

  • The input ports available on televisions today include HDMI, Ethernet/Network, USB, Component and Composite connections. These are important for two reasons. First, the type of connection used affects or enables the best overall picture quality. Currently, the most common port is HDMI which provides the best high definition video and audio connection, and it is the only input that is compatible with Full 1080p HDTV and 3D signals. Second, the number of ports available impacts the number of external components you can attach to the TV. Gaming consoles, cable and satellite boxes, DVD/BlueRay Players, Home Theater Receivers and media streaming devices may all connect to your TV. Ethernet ports enable a wired connection to the internet and may enable the provision of addition media and content services.

    What is a Smart TV?

  • A smart TV is simply a television that has direct internet connectivity ether via an Ethernet port or WiFi, so you can access additional content services such as Netflix, Vudu, CinemaNow, YouTube, and even audio sites like Pandora. Most Smart TVs now are Wireless, so they have a wi-fi connection that you would hookup to your home internet wi-fi. Smart TV’s also have an Ethernet connection which is a wired internet connection, that will give you faster connection speed vs. wi-fi. . Another option is to add on a Smart TV/Internet box that turns a regular TV into a smart TV by just plugging in the HDMI cable to your TV and hooking up the box to your Wi-Fi network. These Internet Media Streamer devices are available from brands like Roku, Netgear, and even AppleTV, and they typically range in cost from $59-$99. Note some content services charge monthly or download fees as well.

    Can I mount my TV to the wall and what type of mount to I need?

  • Pretty much all Flat Screen TV’s (LED, LCD, and Plasma) can be wall mounted with the proper equipment and wall conditions. Mounts are available in Fixed, Tilt, and Articulating varieties for all sizes of flat panel TVs. The mount manufactures have specific call outs for the range of TV sizes and the weight capacities that the mounts will hold. They also call out the actual mount hole pattern, which is the typically the distance between the mounting holes on the rear of the TV. The standard mount spacing sizes for small TV’s is 100x100mm, 100x200m, and larger TV’s can be as big as 200x400 or 400x400.

    Do I need a Home Theater system or Soundbar?

  • As TV’s have become thinner and smaller, this has limited the audio quality options for the manufactures. With those smaller speaker drivers, many customers miss the richer and louder sound they have heard before on older large TVs. This has caused many people to upgrade their sound either with full home theater systems, that typically have a powered amplifier/receiver, 5-7 speakers, and often a separate subwoofer. If you have the space, this will give you the best possible Movie Theater type of experience and will immerse you with full surround sound. Another great option is to add on a “SoundBar” which is a longer single speaker that fits below or above your TV to give you much better audio quality and a way easier installation. Some of these soundbards have separate, even wireless subwoofers to give you extra low end punch. Why not hear the movie experience when you watch it on your new TV?

    What about protecting my purchase and ensuring it lasts?

  • There are two simple items to seriously consider to ensure your television lasts. First, ensure your television is not damaged by electrical surges and power spikes by using proper surge protection. Often people assume that they are protected by using a simple outlet strip. Outlet strips do not protect your investment appropriately. Simply put, the power distributed throughout our homes has multiple fluctuations and spikes even on a day-to-day basis. These fluctuations cause daily wear on our components and appliances, and left unprotected this wear and tear reduces the overall life of the unit. Note: the higher the “Joule” rating listed on the surge protector, the more protection is in place for your investment. Second, ensure you are aware that standard household surface and glass cleaners are not for use with the delicate screen films used on most televisions. Simple TV screen cleaning products are readily available and ensure that the screens are cleaned properly while protecting these delicate surfaces.
