Display

Television Type

The type of technology used to produce the screen images. LCD, DLP, Plasma, LCoS, and CRT are the most common. 2 newer technologies include LED and OLED which use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as a backlight, as opposed to conventional LCD TVs, which use cold-cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) for a backlight.

LED technology integrates LCD display technology with LED backlighting. On LED television, both LCD and LED will be selected here.

LCD
3D Ready
This means that the television is compatible with 3D images. Some televisions will require special glasses to view the 3D images, while other TVs can display the image without the necessity of glasses.
Screen Size
The screen size dimension is measured diagonally in inches.
40"
Aspect Ratio
The standard ratio of 4:3 (width:height) is one that most are familiar with; however, today we're seeing more models with widescreen 16:9 aspect ratios, which closely matches the most common movie theater screen ratio and HDTV broadcasts too.

Selectable aspect ratio means that the user has the option to choose which aspect ratio they would like. This feature is usually found on televisions.

16:9
Resolution (pixels)
A display's pixel resolution defines its ability to resolve fine details. Digital TVs and projectors measure screen resolution in pixels. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the picture will be.
1920 x 1080 
Brightness
The level of brightness; measured in candela per square meter (cd/m2), a calculation that measures light intensity emitting from the screen. The higher the value, the brighter. Some manufacturers will measure brightness in NIT. These measurements are equal. 1 cd/m2 = 1 NIT.
500 cd/m2 (NIT)
Contrast Ratio
On a display, the contrast ratio measures the brightest color to the darkest color. A high contrast ratio is usually desired in this value. A high contrast ratio is determined as the gap between the two numbers widens.
2,500:1
Dynamic Contrast Ratio
This is the maximum contrast ratio that the display is able to produce. Typically, the dynamic contrast ratio is about 5x the normal, or static, contrast ratio.
25,000:1
Refresh Rate
Refresh rate is the number of times in a second that the display will draw the picture on the screen.
120 Hz
Response Time
In relation to LCD monitors, the response time is the amount to time it takes for a pixel to go from black to white, and then return to black again. The time is measured in ms, or milliseconds. The lower the response time, the smoother the display can playback video. A high response time results in less blur and a crisper image.
6.5 ms
Viewing Angle
This represents the angle at which the monitor can best be viewed at.
178 °

Video

Panel Life
The panel life of a display is the length of time that the manufacturer stats that it will work for. It is measured in hours. The time is usually determined after many tests performed by the manufacturer.
WiFi Capable
This feature allows devices to download new software updates, stream video content through various services, or connect with BD-Live features wirelessly when connected with a compatible wireless link.
Internet TV
This is a feature that enables the television (or other display) to connect to the internet to receive a online broadcast or video signal.
Instant Streaming Content
Some devices can connect to the internet for instant streaming content. This feature allows you to receive instant access to different media sources such as Netflix, YouTube, Blockbuster On Demand and more when connected to the network. For more information on the specific content and what they offer, please see the product description.
3:2 Pulldown

This means that the devices will enhance the framerate of older videos to play smoothly on the display set.

Film is usually shot in 24 frames per second with 2 fields per frame. One field for the even lines, and one for the odd. The standard NTSC broadcast is 30 frames per second. To achieve this frames have to be created to sustain a smooth image. So out of every 4 frames, a 5th frame is created by combining opposite fields of consecutive frames, in turn creating a new frame so the outcome will be 30 frames from 24.

Example:
AA|BB|CC|DD to AA|BB|BC|CD|DD

x.v. Color
A new color space that allows compatible units to view up to 1.8 times as many colors as sRGB (the previous standard that began in 1996)
THX Certified
THX is a high-fidelity, high-quality, sound reproduction standard. Its superior audio quality is reserved for only the best. In order for a unit or product to be THX certified, strict qualifications must be met to insure the highest quality. If the unit is THX certified, you are sure to be impressed.
Video Broadcast System
Most cameras and displays will be compatible with a NTSC video broadcast system. Others will be compatible with a PAL system. Many units will be compatible with both.
NTSC
ATSC Compatible
ATSC is the new high definition format that will become the standard in 2009. It will be replacing the former NTSC television system.
Yes
QAM Tuner
A QAM tuner allows select digital televisions to receive a digital signal without the use of a digital set-up box.
Yes
HDTV Compatibility
This means that the television, projector, or monitor is capable of receiving and playing back a high-definition signal.
Yes
Display Format
High-definition televisions will display the image at 1080i, 1080p, or 720p. To be considered full HD, a television must display at 1080p.

Standard televisions will display the images at 480i or 480p. This means that there are 480 horizontal lines that create the picture.

1080p
CableCARD Compatible
CableCARD is a wireless card that allows the viewing of digital cable television channels on digital video recorders, personal computers and televisions. They do not require the use of equipment provided by a cable television company.
No
Automatic Brightness Control
Some televisions will feature a sensor built-in to the front panel that will sense the amount of light in the room. The television processor will then adjust the brightness of the panel to the appropriate level.
Comb Filter
A comb filter prevents line bleeding (dot crawl) in televisions. It does this by filtering the input signal and making sure that the colors appear only where they are supposed to be.

Speakers

Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
2
Total Peak Power Output
The total peak power output is measured as the wattage per channel multiplied by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

It is measured during a brief musical burst, such as a sudden drum accent. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal.

The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

20 watts
Premium Surround Speakers
This means that the television has high quality speakers built-in that provide a surround sound feel. While this feature does not replace a 5.1 or 7.1 Dolby surround sound system, it does have a notable difference above the standard television speakers.
