Whats the Difference between LED, LCD and Plasma? - LCD TVs have the 2nd best picture quality, are the most popular among the HD family, 2nd most expensive and is the best HD starter T.V.
-Plasma TVs were the first HD technology; the cheapest in price and because of its technology is good for fast movements like sports. Plasma TVs don’t have a size less than 42 inches. So if you’re looking for any HDTV 18 – 42 inch. It’s going to be LCD or LED.
LED TVs are actually LCD’s too, but not the other way around. It has the best picture quality, the most expensive and is the latest in HD technology. LED does also have a reputation on being very light in weight and being a great power saver. Depending on the model, its normal for LED’s to run 3-5 times less electricity.
What should I know about 1080 & 720? 1080 and 720 are on both sides of the high definition coin. Progressive and interlace goes after that, this means that something like 720 would mean 720 lines of resolution. In other words all of the data is there all of the time.
I’m always seeing the letter “I” or “p” after 1080 and 720, what does that mean? Interlace(I) format is generally the basic format behind normal television picture. Half of the resolution is virtual, it doesn't exist. The way that functions is you split every frame into two fields. on the first line is every other line of information. So, every even line of resolution is on the screen. Every odd line of resolution is black and not on the screen. The second field reverses that where ever even line is black & every odd line actually has all the information on the T.V.. When you combine those 2 fields you get one frame and they flash back & forth very rapidly. This means that in some cases at certain periods of time you do not have access to full resolution. You've only got 1/2 the resolution on the screen. This flash is so fast that the mind just fills in the blanks.
So what’s progressive(p)? Progressive HD video is where every single line of resolution is on the TV all the time. There is no virtual field, all of it is a full frame. This means when you throw a football down the field. All of the information is there the whole time. There's no weird smearing there's no interlace-artifacting, none of this. So the picture is perfect and clear every time. Movie cinemas are mostly progressive. This makes progressive hands down better than interlacing.
What’s the frame rate(HZ) and why does it matter? Framerate also sometimes seen as “HZ” means the amount of frames in 1 second. For example 60 HZ = 60 frames in 1 second. Theres’ no such thing as steady movement on a TV or computer monitor, every show, movie, etc you’ve seen in your life was the result of still images on a screen switching to another image very fast to trick you into thinking its movement. Because of the way the eye and brain work. Having something over 60hz is really not that necessary… Unless you’re trying to achieve 3D, which is another story.
