Now that the digital switchover has finished. Pretty much all tv’s now have digital built into them. However you should make sure that when you are going to buy a TV that it still has digital built in. Some retailers will sell off old models without digital built in to get rid of the now dead technology off their shelves. DO NOT fall into this trap. Make sure you read into what you are buying. As High Definition is kicking in and more and more of them will be of 1080p quality you should research whether you want to buy a 720p or 1080p tv.
What’s the difference? A 720p television will have 720 pixels running along the width of the screen whereas a 1080p one will have 1080 pixels across it’s width. They will both have the same aspect ratio, but one will have more definition as the other due to the increased pixel size. TV’s such as the Samsung UE55F6800 have 1080p. You can still get 720p these days however they are becoming more and more hard to find. With things such as 4K on the horizon, 1080p will become obsolete in the next few years, leading towards even more resolution based technology advancements. Also to throw into the mix is companies such as Apple, who are now making retina displays. These displays have so many pixels in them, that some of them have more pixels than televisions do, in a hand held device!
Although Apple may be getting started, other companies such as Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, Toshiba and more are looking to step up their game and make 4K displays very soon. The whole 3D thing didn’t really take off as well as manufacturers had expected due to lack of interest, people having headaches and much more. As a result of this, the manufacturers looked into what they could do next to increase their sales, through advancing their technologies. 4K is the next step that everyone has been waiting for.
As you can see the way that technology moves these days is at a crazy pace and not only were TV’s 10 years ago as thick as they were wide but they were also running off terribly low resolutions. We really are spoilt for choice.
