Chart Edit

Very Bright Display Brightness

The average display brightness of mid-size TVs that came out in the last year is 270 cd/m². When compared to other new similar spec TVs that we have assessed, the 49BDL4050's display brightness of 450 candellas per square meter is one of the brightest.

Chart Edit

This TV supports a 1080p supported video modes, which is typical of many TVs that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit
