4K UltraHD
RotmansTV: (508)438-4246
HD - 1920 x 1080 pixels, 4K Ultra HD - 3840 x 2160 pixels
The More Pixels
The Sharper the Image
4K Ultra HD TV has a resolution four times greater than the HDTV we are used to watching today
Current 1080p HD TV has about 2 million pixels whereas Ultra HD TV has over 8 million pixels
400% better than Standard HDTV
Hight Resolution 4K HDTV
Amazing Resolution
With 4K Ultra HDTV it is all about resolution. The amount of pixels means a higher quality picture with more definition, layered transitions and subtler gradations; what we see on 4K will be truer to what we see in nature.
Immerse Yourself in Clarity
The small pixel size of Ultra HD TVs allow for a greater viewing range than Standard HD TVs. Sit up to two times closer and still experience true HD clarity.
What is the difference between 4K and UltraHD?
Short answer is there is no difference. Long answer is, technically there is a difference between 4K TV and Ultra HD TV, (3840 vs 4096 pixels) however it is perfectly acceptable to use the two interchangeably. If you see a TV labeled as 4K or Ultra HD it is safe to assume they mean the same thing.
Things to Consider
4K Ultra HD is ahead of its time. The amount of Ultra HD content available today is minimal; broadcast TV and movies are not yet available in Ultra HD, similar to the early days of Full HD.
The Ultra HD content is coming: Future-Proof your TV now
Netflix and Amazon are beginning to offer shows in Ultra HD and DirecTV will be offering Ultra HD content in early 2015. This makes now a prime time to invest in Ultra HD. By investing in Ultra HD TV now you can be assured your television won't be obsolete in 2 years. You will be ahead of the game as more and more 4K content becomes available.
In the meantime Ultra HD TVs offer upconverting, or upscaling, which converts standard HD content close to 4K resolution. While it isn't perfect 4K quality, it still produces a better picture than standard 1080p HDTV.
What about price?
When first introduced, Ultra HD TVs were very expensive. However, as the technology continues to improve pricing continues to fall. Ultra HD TV prices have fallen dramatically in the last year and have become very affordable. 55" Ultra HD televisions are now available starting around $999.
OLED TVs
The Down-Low with OLED TVs
OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) is the exciting new technology that points to an amazing future for home entertainment. Already common in smartphones and digital cameras, Organic-LED technology allows each pixel to naturally light the screen's image rather than relying on a common light source to light multiple pixels like today's LED technology.
OLED Advantages
Sleek Design
OLED TVs are lightweight and amazingly slim. The curved design of many OLED models provides a natural and immersive experience no matter the angle from which you're watching.
Contrast Level
Be instantly impressed with the stark contrast levels, thanks to the OLED inky deep black levels. Each individual pixel can turn off completely, resulting in total black, which creates a more defined contrast between the lightest and darkest colors.
Clear Motion
No more blurriness to your picture quality as OLEDs have very fast response times, faster than LEDs, LCDs, and even plasmas. This should mean that OLEDs, like plasma sets, can handle motion without noticeable blurring.
OLED vs 4K UltraHD
4K Ultra HD TVs and OLED TVs offer different types of technology. OLED is a new type of display technology, while 4K Ultra HD is a new type of resolution technology. This means, OLED TVs still have a resolution of Standard HD at 1920 x 1080 while Ultra HD TVs have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. On the other hand, Ultra HD TVs still incorporate standard LED technology while OLED TVs offer a new solution to picture quality. However, as technology progresses, the two will eventually be merged.
LED-LCD TVs
If you have watched TV recently, there is a good chance it was an LED TV. LED TVs are inexpensive and energy efficient, making them the most popular type of TV available. As technology has advanced, LED TV picture quality has greatly improved, allowing them to overcome Plasma and LCD TVs.
What is an LED??
LED is the type of light source the TV uses to illuminate the picture on the screen. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode; The LEDs themselves are typically located on the edges of the TV; at the top and bottom or the sides (varies by manufacturer). The LEDs are used to light up the picture you see on the TV screen by sending a beam of light across the screen which is then reflected onto the image.
Let's get it straight:
Technically, LED TVs are LED-LCD TVs; LED is the light source and LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is the type of screen. The type of TV that is often referred to as LCD today is more appropriately known as CCFL-LCD TV (cold cathode fluorescent light). CCFL-LCD TVs are not as energy efficient as LEDs, contain mercury and don't match the overall quality of LED.
What to look for:
When deciding which LED TV is best for you, there is one key factor to pay attention to; contrast ratio. To put it simply: the difference between the brightest image a TV can produce and the darkest. LED TVs accomplish a good contrast ratio through local dimming.
Local dimming is essentially the dimming of parts of the screen that should be dark while keeping the parts of the screen that should be bright, bright. Why this matters: Good local dimming adds depth and creates a crisp, clear picture.
Curved TVs
The curved TV is designed to keep the entire screen at a uniform distance from the viewer’s eyes. The curved edges bring forth the picture on the sides of the screen which create the appearance of a more complete picture; the immersion effect.
Why Consider a Curved TV?
The subtle curved shape of these TVs offer up wider viewing angles & a better sense of depth that helps draw you in and makes you feel like a part of the action! Typically we watch TV directly in front of the television but sometimes that isn’t always possible. Some living room arrangements may not allow for sitting directly in front of the TV or, with large groups of people, not everyone can sit in the best spot. The curved panel ever so slightly directs the image beyond the best spots directly in front of the TV. This comes in handy especially during family movie time or the big game Once you have experienced the sense of full visual immersion & amazing image contrast that are both made possible by the curve TVs, the others all fall flat!
And Just Remember.....
Curved TVs are available in 4K Ultra HD, OLED and LED.
