Buying a new TV: some tips

Anyone planning to buy a new TV soon from, for example, Media Markt, BCC or another provider, will have to make sense of the newest technologies with which the manufacturers unpack. You will also have to choose from the available screen sizes: buy a TV with a 40-inch screen, a 55-inch screen or even larger? Below an overview of the latest technologies.

Ultra HD resolution

Ultra HD screens, also known as 4K screens, have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. Due to the much higher pixel density, you get a much sharper image. To enjoy the benefits of Ultra HD (UHD), the television program or movie that you watch must of course also be recorded with the UHD technology.

HDR support

High dynamic range or HDR is a technique that ensures a much greater contrast in the image: the white color becomes whiter, the black parts even blacker and the color palette even more extensive.

10-bit color depth

Seven 4K televisions tested

Working with a color depth of 10 bits means that for each primary color (red, green and blue) 1024 shades can be displayed. This means that a total of 1.07 billion shades of color may appear on the screen.

The OLED SCREENS

OLED technology uses organic LEDs, which can be used to create a large, flat light source. OLED screens are gradually replacing traditional LCD screens. Advantages of these types of screens are the high contrast, a sharper image, and greater color depth. OLED screens can also be thinner because OLED pixels light up themselves and do not need a backlight.
