What’s the difference between 4K/UHD and 1080p/Full HD?
4K, or Ultra-High Definition (UHD), and 1080p, or Full HD, refer to the resolution of a television. Resolution is measured by counting the rows and columns of pixels across the screen. A regular (non-high definition) TV has 460 columns by 360 rows of pixels. A full HD TV has 1920 columns by 1080 rows, hence 1080p. 4K is the latest standard in screen resolution, measuring 4,096 columns by 2,160 rows. The result of this increase in pixels gives 4K televisions four times the number of pixels on screen than 1080p televisions.
What is a “Smart” TV?
A Smart TV simply refers to a television having the ability to connect to the internet in a “Smart” way. Smart TVs are built with an internal WiFi card that picks up the wireless internet signal in your home. Having internet connected to your television enables it to run popular streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu Plus, and YouTube without having to connect any accessories to your TV.
Nearly all UHD TVs today are “smart,” but this does not mean that you need wireless internet for the television to work properly; it simply means that if you do, you will have access to these additional features. You won’t have to worry about setting up your Smart TV though, because our technicians will deliver, set-up, and network most televisions free of charge.
What is HDR?
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. Televisions with HDR technology can produce much a much wider range of contrast. This means the darks are darker and the lights are lighter than traditional high-definition televisions. What this results in for you, the viewer, is much more life-like video that more accurately represents the color and detail of the content you’re watching. HDR is only available on 4K/UHD televisions.
What are OLED and QLED?
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) is a panel technology that has recently become available on televisions at a consumer price point. On OLED displays, each individual pixel creates its own light, rather than being back-lit by a matrix of LED lights as most LCD panel televisions are. This results in a stunning increase in contrast, bringing a dynamic range to your screen that has never before been possible.
QLED (Quantum Light-Emitting Diode), is a picture technology offered primarily by Samsung. The brand’s QLED televisions use standard LCD panels, but back-lighting is supplemented by a layer of Quantum Dots, which emit a distinctive glow when hit by light. The result is a vibrant, gorgeous image that is on par with what you would see on an OLED display – and available at half the cost of one.
