Televisions Today  OLED TV OLED TV has a display based on characteristics of "organic light-emitting diodes" (OLED) this is a different technology from LED televisions. The OLED display is made up of organic based substances that are used as the semi-conductor material in LEDs.  Smart TV A smart TV, is also known as connected TV or hybrid TV, it is a television or set-top box with integrated Internet and web features.  As well as the usual functions of a television or set top box they also provide internet TV, online interactive media and on-demand streaming media.  Smart TV enables a range of apps, catch-up TV and streaming services and by using BBC iPlayer, My5 and Netflix, all of which are available on the smart tv, you will have no trouble finding programmes to entertain you and the family.  An efficient and user-friendly Smart TV enables you to display the contents of your smart device on the large screen this allows you to share photographs and videos from your smartphone or tablet for everybody to enjoy.  The built in WiFi will allow connection to other devices on your network via DLNA, therefore you are also able to share content on the TV screen. 3D TV 3D TV conveys depth perception to the viewer  through techniques such as stereoscopic, multi-view display, 2D-plus-depth, or any other form of 3D display. Most modern 3D tv's use an active shutter 3D or a polarized 3D system, and some are autostereoscopic (without the need of glasses). 4k Ultra HD resolution 4K resolution, also called 4K, is referring to a display device with horizontal resolution of 4,000 pixels as well as vertical resolution of 2000 pixels.   Various 4K resolutions apply in fields of digital television and cinematography.                 With a Smart 3D 55" Curved OLED TV [...]

TV Boosters – How to Choose the Best TV Signal Booster?

  TV Boosters - How to choose the Best TV Signal Booster? TV Boosters, how do you choose?  Freeview signal boosters are also known as aerial amplifiers and they can help improve digital TV reception in areas that get weak Freeview signal from their  TV transmitters or where hills or obstructions nearby, for example, tall buildings causing poor reception.  This 2 Way TV Amplifier has twin outputs for 2 TV's, includes a power supply and works with sky remote Magic Eye Installations   TV Boosters - There are several different types of TV signal boosters available: TV Distribution Amplifier - This is typically used to split a TV aerial or Sky box output to feed up to 8 televisions's around a house. It is usually fitted in the loft and often powered from a Sky box through the coax cable. This amplifier is used instead of aerial splitter and the signal is amplified by a small amount to each television to help compensate for any cable loss. Indoor Television Aerial Booster - These are usually fitted at the television to boost the freeview signal or  installed close to the aerial for greater improvement of the reception quality.  They are available with two outputs to improve reception to two televisions and replace a signal splitter. These type of television signal boosters are no substitute for a quality roof aerial and wont provide any benefits when fitted next to a television or to an inadequate indoor aerial. Masthead Televison Amplifiers - are a small box mounted close to the television aerial, usually at the base of the mast. They are by far the best television signal boosters and  provide much better results than an amplifier fitted behind the television.  The aerial signal is boosted before the coax cable losses, resulting in a huge [...]

TV Wall Bracket

TV Wall Bracket - which is best? How do you decide which to choose?     Tv Wall Brackets come in various styles.  When purchasing a tv wall bracket for your television, you will need to know the correct measurements of the tv, these can be found directly from the user guide or simply by measuring it yourself.  If you decide to purchase a tv wall bracket online, it may also be a good idea to look up the manufacturer website for the details. Well known brands such as Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and LG often make user guides available to download. There are three main tv wall bracket options to choose from: Flush or Fixed - provides minimum space between the wall and the TV Tilting - enables you to angle the TV down towards the seating area for optimum viewing Extending or Dual-Pivot - ideal for TV's in corners or free movement control Each option has its strengths and weaknesses. Flush or Fixed TV Wall Brackets These tv wall brackets provide minimum space between the television and the wall, this increases the strength of the fitting and keeps the panel as close to the wall as possible. Some smaller TVs can be mounted directly onto plaster board without backing studs. However by using this tv wall bracket and space saving, it limits the cabling access. This would work better with a  TV that has downwards, or side facing power and AV sockets so that the cables dont poke into the wall. You may also want to consider the need for cable management accessories such as right-angle HDMI adapters and wall plates or trunking to keep everything neat.   Tilting TV Wall Mounts These tv wall brackets adjust with an up or down tilt.  Tilting brackets allow you to mount your [...]

Coax Cable – which coax cable to use?

  Coax Cable...is the quality important? Coax Cable...which to use?  A small domestic installation can be severely affected by poor quality cabling. Even more so and far more expensive to repair would be if poor cables where connected to a distribution system that served a communal set up. Cables are installed from the aerial or dish down to the outlets to make the systems work.  So which to use?  CT100 - 75Ohm    Satellite TV Cable The main difference between RG59 and RG6 cable is the size of the cables themselves. Standard RG59 coax cable has a 20 AWG copper centre and RG6 coax cable has an bigger 18 AWG copper centre conductor, offering greater bandwidth with a longer distance capability. In general, RG6 is mainly used in CATV and Satellite DSS applications and RG59 is used in analog CCTV or video applications. RG6 also includes Dual or Quad Shield. It is made using foil and braided aluminum shields. All frequencies that are normally used in High Definition are usually around 37 MHz. For all lower frequencies, an RG59 with a 95% all-copper shield is made to block RFI inclusion on base band frequencies. Because RG59 does not have a foil shield, it isnt suitable for use with satellite feeds or cable feeds. RG59 has less signal reduction, or attenuation, over 100 feet. The shielding on RG59 does not work quite as well to maintain Ghtz level signals inside of the centre conductor. RG6 is better designed for maintaining the signal levels within the centre conductor. This is the reason RG6 is most commonly used for broadband CATV as well as satellite systems. Use RG6 for any Rapid Frequencies, and use RG59 for video frequencies. RG6 has an aluminium braid and an aluminium shield. RG59 comes with a copper braid. CT100 Dual [...]
