With the fast phasing out of standard definition televisions, HDTVs are forcefully occupying the centre-stage in home improvement process. HDTVs have features that set them apart from their SD cousins. Their effectiveness is such that in some advanced countries such as the USA, the standard for broadcasting is HDTV system
The principal aspects of high definition televisions have the standard of high quality displayed through them. For example, HDTVs are characterized by high resolution image. The formats are as follows: 720p, 1080p, 1080i. The letter "p" stands for progressive scan while "I" is for interlaced scan. Progressive scanning is ahead of interlaced scanning.
However, according to some experts, in-spite of the overall focus on the resolution quality of HDTVs, other factors play more pro-eminent role in the quality of picture than resolution. Thus contrast ratio contributes more, followed by color saturation and color accuracy. But because there are no specifications on which to base a perfect representation of these elements, they are hardly referred to in determining the importance of image quality.
Moreover, you need to observe that besides having an HD-ready TV set, you may need other gadgets to view HD Television: it could come in the way of inbuilt HDTV receiver or external receiver. For example in some countries, cable-ready TV sets can display High Definition content without using an external box. Furthermore you will be happy to know that there are different sources for HD-image; they are: terrestrial broadcast, direct broadcast satellite, digital cable, IPTV, Blu-ray video disc.
With the abundance of discussion about the benefits and disadvantages of Plasma and LCD televisions, people tended to lose view of some other things. Many do not realise that these are not the only types of high definition TVs. OLED TV is pointing at the horizon.
OLEDs are known to be light when it comes to weight considerations. They offer better response time and wider viewing angles; but for the meantime they are expensive and still going through some processes that will give them an edge over other types of HDTV sets in the near future.
At the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Samsung introduced a new 55" Super OLED. It promises a sharper picture than previous high definition TVs have been providing. LG Electronics on the other hand featured their "world's largest 55-inch OLED panel". Thus, manufacturers are acting at a faster pace to make OLED televisions the talk of the town.
