Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QHow are TV displays measured?
AThe size of a TV is dictated by the diagonal diameter of the screen. This is calculated by measuring from the top left to bottom right of the screen itself - the measurement doesn't include the bezel (the casing around the screen) or any extras - just the screen.
QWhat is the difference between 4k, Full HD and HD Ready?
AThese 3 are a measurement of the "resolution" of a TV - how many pixels the screen can display at once, and therefore how sharp the image is. HD Ready TVs have a resolution of around 1280x720 pixels, whereas Full HD TVs have a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. 4k TVs have a substantially higher density, being somewhere around 3840x2160 pixels.

The higher the resolution, the sharper the image will be on large screens. An 80 inch TV that only supports HD Ready will look muddy and blurry. On the other hand, 4k resolution will be wasted on a small 3 inch TV, since the screen is too small to make effective use of it.
QWhat is a Smart TV?
AA Smart TV has a net connection, and the ability to run apps like a computer. This means that as well as watching TV, you can use the device to access sites such as YouTube or Netflix, display news updates, browse social media and play music using apps such as Spotify.
QWhat is the difference between LCD & LED TVs?
ALiquid Crystal Displays (LCD) TVs work by shining light through a matrix of coloured liquid cells, whereas Light Emitting Diodes (LED) TVs utilise an enormous amount of tiny LED lights to shine light through, rather than a small number of lamps. LCD TVs still make up the largest amount of TVs on the market, but LED TVs tend to be significantly thinner and lighter, and give a better backlight coverage due to the larger number of lamps.

Introducing Ultra-Thin TVs

These TVs are on the cutting edge of size reduction - they are under 20mm thin, meaning they take up far less space than standard TV sets, are lighter, and are far less intrusive.

Most ultra-thin TVs use OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diodes) technology - which provides superior colour depth and contrast, and substantially cuts down on the required lighting inside the TV, meaning the resulting devices can be slimmer and thinner. Briefly, standard LED TVs have a large bank of LEDs (the backlight) behind a colour-changing matrix of cells - the light shines through these cells and makes up the picture. OLED TVs use a special kind of cell that generates it's own light, meaning there is no need for a separate backlight, allowing them to be significantly thinner than their predecessors.

As you would expect from cutting-edge technology, it's not cheap. Ultra-thin TVs range among some of the most expensive you can buy, but the effect is startling. Hung up on a wall, the TV is no longer a big imposing box in the middle of the room, but instead blends into the surroundings when not in use, and is far less of a distraction and annoyance. Some of the slimmest of these TVs are so thin that they can't actually stay up on a stand - they have to be hung on the wall like a painting!





A downside of these ultra-thin TVs - there is no space for built-in speakers, so generally they will require use of an external sound bar of speaker system. Some of the ultra-thin TVs come with a sound bar as standard, but it's best to double-check, otherwise you will have to purchase one separately.
