HDTV Glossary of Terms

4K HDR = 2016 is the year of HDR or High Dynamic Range. This is the latest feature that actually does greatly improve picture quality. It allows for a wider range between bright and dark scenes, and makes colors look more natural. A true breakthrough in screen technology. Blu-ray discs and future content will be tailored to take advantage of this technology built into future TVs. We saw this technology in action, at a CES demonstration by Dolby Vision.
SmartReview BEST of 2016 TVs = So far, only two TVs have received our best of 2016 award. These are the Sony XBR X930D 4K Series and the LG B6 OLED 4K Series. Both are at the top of their range in price, but the picture quality is outstanding. The new HDR features have greatly improved colors and details in the picture. We previewed these at CES 2016.
Dual Core/Quad Core/Octa Core/Processor = TVs with a Dual Core Processor will speed up Smart TV functionality and allow new features that slower processors cannot support. Quad Core processor are even faster than Dual Core and will enhance the speed of your TV even more. The high end 2015 Samsung SUHD JS9000 4K Series and JS9500 4K Series both have an Octa-Core Processor processor with 8 cores, the most powerful processors ever in a TV.
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.
Smart TV = A Smart TV is one that can access the internet, most have an internet browser, and will give you access to programming such as Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, and more. Most Smart TVs have apps that can be installed on your TV.
4K Ultra HD (UHD) = 4K is the new standard in TVs. It has 8 megapixels of resolution, which is 4x the Full HD 1080p TVs currently on the market. Movie theaters now use 4K Projectors, which is about the same resolution as these new 4K TVs, so you get movie theater resolution at home. This allows you to sit closer to the TVs as the pixels are smaller, and will give you a more immersive movie theater type of experience.
SUHD/Quantum Dots = For 2015 Samsung has introduced its SUHD line of TVs with Quantum Dots (also known as nanocrystals). This technology gives the 4K TV enhanced color range and brightness. This is only in Samsung’s Top end TVs such as the Samsung KS8500 4K Series, the JS9000 Curved 4K Series and the JS9500 4K Series. We previewed this technology at the Consumer Electronics Show 2015, and it was the best picture from Samsung that we had ever seen. Sony has also introduced TVs with quantum dots which they call their TRILUMINOS™ Panel.
4K X-Reality PRO = This is Sony’s best image processor that is in its new 4K TVs. Sony has ten years experience in image processing for movie theaters. Sony’s 4K Projectors are now installed in movie theaters worldwide. This technology will allow you to enhance even lower resolutions of sports, movies, and blu-ray to 4K. Sony is the leader in image processing. The top-rated 4K TVs have the best image processors.
HEVC (H.265) codec = HEVC (H.265) is a new compression codec that is used to compress video. This new codec compresses twice as much data as previous codecs, so that 4K Ultra HD video can be sent over cable and the internet. HEVC (H.265) will allow 4K/60p playback for viewing 4K sports in the future. 4K/60p will also be available on future 4K camcorders. Even Samsung’s entry level 2016 KU6200 4K Series comes standard with a HECV (H.265) decoder. Almost all 2015-2016 4K TVs will have HEVC installed. Netflix is using this technology to show 4K content such as “House of Cards”.
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 3D Certified = THX certification means that this TV will let you experience a motion picture with the same colors, black levels and other factors that were created for the theater. This is for 2D and 3D viewing.
Edge/Local Dimming = Some advanced LED TVs have an LED backlight that can dim in certain areas of the screen. This can reduce backlight bleeding, halos, as well as increasing contrast, and improving the picture. With this technology you get blacker blacks and whiter whites.
240Hz = 240 hertz anti blur technology. Eliminates blur on LCD TVs during high action sports and movies.
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
Internet Ready = This means that this TV can give you content from the internet. Content varies with the manufacturer. This TV will provide an ethernet port to connect an ethernet cable. Or you can buy an optional Wifi USB plugin device to send the internet wirelessly to your Television. Some manufacturers provide built-in Wifi. Some provide Netflix and youtube 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. Some TVs include 3D Glasses, and some you must purchase them.
HDMI = HDMI inputs allow you to connect devices to your HDTV such as DVD and Blu-ray players and game consoles. HDMI 2.0 is a new standard for 4K TVs to allow faster framerates that will be coming for sports, and 4K camcorders.
