8 Steps To A Perfect TV Picture:
There’s nothing worse than trying to watch your favourite movie and the television picture is fuzzy or dark. Modern TVs can be expensive to buy and when you have bought a new one, you want to make sure you get the most out of it.
- You will need the right sources and connections for everything to run smoothly. For sources, choose a HD Blu-ray player over a standard DVD player or consider a quality streaming service like Netflix. For connections, use HDMI cables over other kinds of connections.
- Make sure your sources are set up correctly. Check your set-top box, Blu-ray player, DVD player or gaming console’s display settings to see what they are outputting. Choose the highest option, then work your way back until you get a good picture.
- The brightness of your room light can affect the image on your television screen and can change the colours of your display. Choosing an OLED TV will solve this problem, as they have self-illuminating displays that allow for adaptability.
- Use the pre-set image options on your TV. This will ensure colours are optimised and contrast is good. It’s best not to play around with different modes unless you really know what you are doing.
- Leave your colour management controls – changing them can affect the colour spectrum on your television.
- Avoid increasing the sharpness on your TV – don’t set it to higher than 10/15 on the adjustable scale, as higher can have the opposite effect that you want.
- Manually adjust motion handling settings to avoid blur and judder. It will require different settings for movies, sports and games, so tweak it yourself for the best results.
- Have your sofa or seats facing straight to the TV. Also, the wall mounting shouldn’t be too high so as to avoid visual distortions.
