What is Smart TV?
Smart TV, sometimes referred to as connected TV or hybrid TV, is a television set with integrated Internet and interactive “Web 2.0” features. Smart TV is a technological convergence between computers and flatscreen television sets and set-top boxes (cable boxes). These devices also provide Internet TV, online interactive media, over-the-top content (OTT), as well as on-demand streaming media, and home networking access.
What makes a TV Smart?
The major feature that makes a TV smart is its ability to connect to the internet. Smart TVs comes with Ethernet ports and built in WiFi capabilities which enables them to connect to your wifi network from anywhere in your house. We recommend a high-speed internet for streaming games, 4k and 8k content.
Common Smart TV Features:
HD (High Definition): High Definition meant 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution.
4K (Ultra HD-UHD): Is define as having four times the number of pixels on a 1080p display, and over 23 times the resolution of standard definition television. Its resolution has standardized to 3840 x 2160.
HDR (High dynamic range): is a category of video formats available on many new 4K TVs. HDR content has the same resolution as regular 4K video, but each pixel can be assigned a much wider and more granular range of color and light. Currently available standards are HDR10 and Dolby Vision.
SDR (Standard Dynamic Range): Refers to TV sets that do not employ the greater screen contrast provided by high dynamic range (HDR).
HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface): This is a standard for connecting high-definition video devices (HDMI cables).
C.D. TV (Liquid-crystal-display televisions): are televisionsets that use liquid-crystal displays to produce images. LCD televisions are thinner and lighter than cathode ray tube (CRTs) of similar display size, and are available in much larger sizes.
E.D. TV (light emitting diodes): A flat panel LCD TVset that uses LEDs (light emitting diodes) for its backlight source rather than the earlier cold cathode fluorescent lamps (see CCFL).
