High Definition Televisions

November 18, 2009

HDTVs (also known as High Definition Televisions) provide a higher resolution and vibrant colors up to five times than standard TVs.

By the time the first set of High Definition Televisions released to the market in 1998, movies and sports fans got really excited with the surround sound and high resolution. With High Definition TVs, movies fans could also play movies in their original widescreen format for the fisrt time without the annoying black bars.
Apart from the picture clarity of High Definition TVs screens, it can be used on mobile phones or public display. High Definition transmission can be received through wired and wireless media; including satellite dishes, cables, mobile phones, PCs and even directly to storage devices with no intervention.
With up to five times better picture quality than standard definition and increased color vibrancy, it’s easy to realize the benefits that High Definition TVs bring to your viewing experience. When including the Digital surround sound system, you’ll be able to experience a cinema at your own home.

How HDTVs work

If you look closely at a color TV screen through a magnifier, you can see that it is made of groups of tiny red, green and blue dots called sub pixels. The TV pictures are always made of these sub pixels, no matter if the TV is analogue or digital. High Definition transmission is simply the transmission of the color and brightness values of these pixels, plus the sound signal, as digital data. These values are then converted back into pixels, and hence viewable pictures, at the receiver end of the transmission path.
The clarity of the picture depends on the difference in the number of pixels; Standard Definition TVs display a 720 by 576 pixels picture, which means the screen is made of less than 500,000 points of light. However, High Definition TVs can display a 1920 by 1080 pixels picture. Which means the screen is made of over 2,000,000 points of light.

San Diego HDTV

September 27, 2009

Analog, digital and high definition TVs are very different. For many years, watching TV has involved analog signals and cathode ray tube (CRT) sets. However, this system has worked pretty well for a long time, but it has some limitations, like its low resolution. A digital signal transmits the information for video and sound as ones and zeros instead of as a wave. A digital signal can support a higher resolution, so the picture will still look good when shown on a larger TV screen. HDTV standards are the top level of all the digital signals. But whether you see a high-definition picture and hear the accompanying surround sound depends on two things. First, the station has to be broadcasting a high-definition signal. Second, you have to have the right equipment to receive and view it; which is our specialty. GotUWired is specialized in customized installation of San Diego HDTV.

More and more families are using HDTVs lately because of its bright colorful image quality. You may have noticed that most DVD movies, an increasing number of TV shows, and even some commercials, have black bars above and below the screen. If you were watching them on a San Diego HDTV, often you wouldn’t see any bars at all. The picture will usually fill the screen. Conversely, if you watch a regular TV show on an HDTV, it won’t fit on the screen properly. There may be bars to either side, or the picture may be stretched or zoomed.

Adjusting your HDTV is important. Even the best HDTVs can look pretty bad if they’re not adjusted properly. If you want to get the most out of your HDTV, adjusting it beyond the factory default settings is a good idea. GotUWired will professionally adjust your San Diego HDTV, and you will enjoy a lively crystal clear image on your screen. We provide you with the best HD complete solutions that best fit your own lifestyle.
