HDTV Glossary of Terms
4K TV = Many of the TV makers are transitioning from regular HD TVs, to 4K resolution TVs. 4K is 4 times the resolution of HD, capable of showing stunning detail equivalent to what you see on a movie screen, but on your home TV. Bigger sizes really shine in this format. Regular HD has a resolution of 2 megapixels, 4K resolution has four times the resolution of Full HD. 4K content is already available in 2015 from Netflix, Youtube, Amazon, Xfinity Cable, and DirecTV. 4K is also referred to as Ultra HD. 4K Blu-ray players are set to be released in 2015.
4K Ready TV = Sharp has produced a series of regular HD TVs with 10 million more subpixels than regular TVs, capable of displaying 4K content when it arrives. Although this is not a true 4K TV, it will display 4K content with a great picture far superior to regular HD. See Sharp’s Aquos Quattron+ LC-70SQ15U TV for more details on 4K Ready technology.
4K Upscaling = TV will take lower resolution 1080p and 720p HD content and upscale to near 4K Ultra HD quality.
LED HDTV = Instead of a conventional fluorescent backlight, these HDTVs use LED lights for backlighting. This dramatically improves picture contrast, colors, and overall picture. LED TVs also use about 40% less electricity.
Full Array LED = A full array LED refers to the backlight of the LED TV. Most LED TVs are edge lit, or have the leds mounted on the edges. A full array contains many more LEDs, and are mounted equally in the back of the screen to give a backlight that has more uniformity without the flashlighting that sometimes can be seen on the edges.
Edge Lit LED = The most common form of LED backlight. The LED lights are mounted on the edges of the screen.
720p = (1366×768) with 1 million pixels resolution (Standard broadcast HD)
1080p = (1920×1080) with 2 million pixels resolution (Maximum Blu-ray quality)
Contrast = refers to dynamic contrast. Higher is better. More contrast allows more shadow details in the picture.
THX Certified = THX certification means that this high def television will let you experience a motion picture with the same colors, black levels and other factors that were created for the theater. See Sharp’s Aquos LC-70UH30U 4K TV for the only THX Certified TV over 70 inches listed here.
240Hz = 240 hertz anti blur technology. Eliminates blur on LCD TVs during high action sports and movies. The latest technology.
120Hz = 120 hertz anti blur technology. Eliminates blur on LCD TVs during high action sports and movies.
60Hz = 60 hertz normal TV without anti blur technology
600Hz Subfield = Plasma TVs utilize a 600Hz refresh rate which can virtually eliminate motion blur for viewing action sports, movies, and video games.
Smart TV = This means that this TV can provide content from the internet. Content varies with the manufacturer. This TV will provide an ethernet port to connect an ethernet cable. Most manufacturers provide built-in WiFi for wireless internet. Smart TVs typically provide Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, Youtube, and Facebook content.
DLNA = DLNA lets you remotely access your PC’s personal media so that you can download music, video, and photos and enjoy them anywhere in the home your TV is. DLNA stands for Digital Living Network Alliance and is a collaboration of the leading consumer electronics, PC and mobile companies that has created design guidelines for a new generation of products that can work together – no matter what the brand.
3D and 3D Ready = This means that this TV is capable of displaying 3D content from broadcast and 3D capable Blu-ray players. This TV has a built in emitter can communicate with 3D glasses to synchronize with the picture displayed on the TV.
HDMI = HDMI inputs allow you to connect devices to your HDTV such as DVD and Blu-ray players and game consoles.
Quattron™ Color Technology = Available on Sharp HDTVs. Unique Sharp technology introduces a yellow subpixel that delivers more vivid yellows, blues, and golds.
