TV technology has been improved immensely in the last ten years. The evolution of TV sets has been quite slow since the first models were invented, but has changed a lot since the flat HD screens started to come out. Now there are many available options for HDTV that include 3D and curved screens that provide an incredible panoramic view. In this article we are going to be talking about the latest advancements in technology for TV’s and what can be expected from this in the next few years.
OLED Technology: One of the biggest problems with a regular LED TV is that it cannot generate black. It can come up with a wide range of colors, but black is not one of them. OLED technology is going to be getting rid of that problem and it will provide a pitch black image when it’s required. This is something that will probably add to the cost of most models that provide the technology, but it will be worth the expense for the ultimate image quality.
Quantum Dot Technology: There is another method for getting the widest range of colors and pitch black when needed and it’s called quantum dot technology. According to experts, the quantum dot system is going to provide an even better experience than OLED. The amount of extra cost that this will give to the models that implement this technology is still uncertain, but it will very likely be costly at least for the launch year and a couple of years after launch.
New resolutions: The industry seems to be moving towards the use of greater pixel resolutions and 3840 x 2160 seems to be looking like the next standard step for HDTV’s and it has been labelled as UHDTV. The greater the pixel resolutions, the more need for the TV system to use digital programming in order for the images to be smooth.
Internet streaming :The future of TV programming will be entirely internet based and this is something that will allow for a great number of new ideas to be brought to the table. The use of satellites and broadcast channels is probably going to be extinct sooner than expected.
New additions expected by the holidays in 2015: All major TV manufacturers like Sony and Samsung have been promising new technology for a while, but most of it has not been made available yet. Hopefully this is going to change soon and we will start to see some of this technology arriving with the models that come out for the holiday season in 2015.
There is always the chance that the latest technological trends might not catch the eye of the mainstream consumer and this would lead to the discontinuation of many new TV technologies. It has happened before with quite a few releases and current technology like 3D screens are still on shaky grounds as far as acceptance goes.
The point is that if you don’t want to invest a large sum of money on new technology to avoid the risk that it will fail to become popular enough, you might want to wait a year or two before you invest, but that will depend entirely on your needs and your budget.
TV technology is constantly evolving now and it would not be surprising if some kind of hologram type of technology will be made available in the next few years, but for now, we should be on the lookout for very innovative screen designs that will soon be created on a full 360 screen display for the ultimate virtual experience.
