Here at LVAVS we have a pixel addiction. We just can’t get enough of them! What is a pixel you ask? You might be surprised to know that you likely have millions of them in your household and don’t even know it. A pixel is the extremely tiny individual dot of colored light which when combined with millions of other pixels make up the moving picture of a TV screen.
So why can’t we get enough of these tiny little dots? Quite simply the more you have the clearer the picture! And this is why 4K technology is such a wonderful progression in the home theater market. I’m sure you remember how amazing it was when you first upgraded your television from the old large curved screen variety to the High Definition which started to become popular in the late ’90s and early 00’s.
When you upgraded your TV you went from roughly 307k pixels to roughly 2 million pixels! 15 years later we have another huge leap but this time from 2 million to 8.29 million! That’s 4 times the resolution!
The main issue when such a change happens is content. All those extra pixels means lots of extra data it takes to bring the TV to life. This is why the advancement of internet speeds are so important as well as television technologies such as satellite delivery and cable company technologies.
The good news, however, is that quite a bit of 4K content is already available mid 2016 and it’s only going to increase from here! For example, Netflix has 26 different TV series and/or movies available in 4K according to whats-on-netflix.com. DirecTV has added a 24/7 4K channel as well as 4K content on demand. Plus more and more sporting events are being planned to broadcast live in 4K.
What does this mean for you? Don’t get left behind! Let LVAVS help you upgrade your home theater entertainment with an amazing new 4K television. We can help you pick out the best model, screen size, and accessories as well as pairing it with an amazing home audio system. We are very excited to see where 4K will be by the end of the year and beyond and we look forward to keeping our customers on the bleeding edge of entertainment technology!
