How to Make the Most of Your HDTV

Posted in LCD TV Brackets — Written by Eric

Optimising the performance of your HDTV can be a rather bewildering task to undertake. Many TV pictures can look fantastic when in a store, and then be disappointing when you get them home. But don’t return your newly purchased TV just yet, because there are several options to improve your picture quality that are might be worth checking out first.

Checking your cables might seem obvious, but it really can make a huge difference. Using HDMI cables wherever possible will give you a much better viewing experience. Older equipment, especially yellow composite cables, are not always optimised to HDTV. New cables don’t necessarily have to cost the world, and changing them can be one of the easiest ways to achieve a large improvement in picture quality.

Another area to review is whether or not you’re using a HD source.  Upgrading your TV service to a provider which actually offers HD packages is an integral part of any HD upgrade, yet it’s also one which is frequently overlooked. Simply owning a HD TV doesn’t mean that what you’re watching is guaranteed to be HD in quality. Once you’ve checked your source is actually HD enabled you also need to ensure your source settings are configured correctly. Your cable or satellite box should be set to output HD, usually found by choosing 1080i from the box menu. You should also ensure you’re tuned in to any HD channels that might be relevant to your provider.

After you’ve crosschecked the above advice, the last area that might need adjusting is the settings on your TV itself. Contrast and brightness controls will often affect your picture the most, so it can be worth taking the time to get acquainted with those in greater detail. Experimenting with preset TV settings can also be useful. Frequently the most accurate picture is offered by the Movie or Cinema mode. Other possible avenues include looking into HDTV calibration, but unless you’ve had some prior training you’re perhaps better off sticking to small changes.

The above advice is by no means exhaustive, but once you’ve made sure your TV is performing to its optimum you still need to then make sure that it’s ideally situated to be seen from your preferred viewing position. HD TV often looks best when the TV itself is elevated onto a suitable wall, and for that you’re going to need some TV wall brackets.

Try TV Wall Mounts For Better Saturday Night Viewing!

Saturday night TV is back in full swing, with both The Voice and Britain’s Got Talent with a couple of weeks broadcasting firmly under their belts already. The domination of Saturday night TV has been a much valued thing throughout British television history, and competition between the BBC and ITV is as fierce as ever. It’s up to you to decide whether you’re a BBC or an ITV bunch, and whether you prefer Tom Jones to Simon Cowell, and people who can sing over animals that can’t.

Settling in for a Saturday night with friends and family around the TV is one of the nation’s favourite pastimes, and the best way to do it is with a take-away laid out and enough room for everyone to kick back, relax and enjoy the show. But with that many people crowded round, plus finding somewhere to put all the food, things can become a little cramped. TV wall brackets offer an inexpensive solution to maximise space for maximum entertainment. A TV bracket means you can mount your TV on the wall and free up even more floor space, perfect when you’re hosting the weekly viewing.

TV Brackets have actually been around for quite a while, but it’s only recently that they’ve made big strides into the home. Fixing your TV to the wall not only frees up space, but also relocates the TV to a much more natural eye level, and projects the sound into the centre of the room as opposed to the bottom third. With just a simple TV wall mount you can enhance your viewing experience considerably, not to mention it’s a fantastic stylistic choice for any room, ideal to complement’s equally stylish hair (bonus points if you can figure out how he does that ‘step’ thing!).

TV wall brackets represent an efficient and practical way to make even more space available to you in your own home. By wall mounting your screen you make a conscious, stylistic choice that has benefits beyond mere aesthetics, though whether you’ll want to hear some out-of-tune warbling even clearer than before is up to you!

If you’ve bought an LCD TV don’t forget to get TV brackets

The prices of LCD TVs have dropped considerably. 32 inch models, which are generally considered the standard, are now very affordable and few people have CRT TVs any more. You don’t even need the excuse that the old TV has stopped working in order to invest in a new flat screen model, with superior sound and a better picture.

However, many people buy an LCD TV and then put it in the same position as their old set. There is nothing wrong with this, but you can do better. You can put your new TV in a position where it will take up less space and where you will get a better view as well. You can do this with TV brackets.

Installing a TV on brackets is pretty straightforward. That is just so long as you do the job properly. The first thing to do is buy the right bracket for your TV. Different brackets fit different TVs and have different load bearing capacities as well. You should also think about what angle you need your TV to point once installed, because a swivelling or rotating bracket may be necessary.

Having bought the correct bracket, you also need to ensure it is attached to the wall securely. This involves attaching it correctly, but you must first ensure the wall is robust enough to support the TV’s weight. As long as you take care and use common sense, you shouldn’t experience any difficulties.

LCD TV and LCD TV bracket growth predicted

October 7, 2011
Posted in LCD TV Brackets — Written by Eric

According to research carried out by the Taiwan based Market Intelligence and Consulting Institute (MIC), LCD sales should continue to grow and as a consequence of that, TV bracket sales should also remain strong.

MIC predicts that 194m LCD TVs will be sold in 2011, which would represent a nine per cent increase on 2010 figures, with LCD TVs accounting for around four-fifths of the total market.

Sales volume could hit the heights of 285m units in a year by 2016, according to MIC, were growth to continue at around eight per cent. 3D TVs are expected to account for most growth and should represent 11 per cent of 2011 sales. By 2014, it is thought that this market share could reach 30 per cent.

Fortunately for TV bracket manufacturers, their products are usually appropriate for multiple TVs, meaning there is no real need to keep redesigning their products. The average fixed bracket works just as well, whether it is holding an LCD, plasma or 3D TV. Similarly, swivelling and tilting brackets can be used with all of those.

As long as a TV bracket is properly installed, of appropriate size and strong enough to support the TV, it will serve its purpose. Whatever TV you own, make sure you’ve got the right bracket and if you do upgrade, don’t assume that the bracket will necessarily be right for the new TV as well.

At least your TV brackets don’t involve jargon

Beyond VESA spacing, there’s little to do with TV brackets that could confuse consumers and that’s simply the distance between the screws used to secure them to the TV. TVs, however, are another matter. Here is a bit of TV jargon and what it means.

If you see a number like this associated with a TV, it relates to the resolution. 1080p means that the resolution is 1920×1080 pixels and the ‘p’ denotes that the screen is in the progressive scan format, which is superior to the interlaced ‘i’ format.

Contrast ratio
It is hard to assess a TV’s quality based on this. The manufacturer will typically quote the ‘dynamic contrast ratio’ which can prove misleading. This measures the whitest white and the darkest black, but doesn’t indicate whether they can appear onscreen at the same time. The ANSI, native or static contrast ratio will give a truer picture, but this information can be hard to find.

HDMI stands for ‘high definition multimedia interface’ and this reflects the fact that it is a means of transmitting both video and audio via the same cable. This technology can transmit data rapidly and so is often used with games consoles.

4:3, 16:9 and suchlike indicate the aspect ratio, which is to say the shape of the screen. These days, you will get TV programmes broadcast in both 4:3 and 16:9, while films might be 1.85:1 or 2.39:1, which are both wider still.

Pair the new Toshiba 47VL863 with pull out TV brackets

When you have just finalised the purchase of a brand new television set, it is important not to forget the TV bracket, especially if you plan to mount it onto the wall. The Toshiba 47VL863 is a 3D LED TV model which has generally garnered great reviews since it was released.

As with all modern TVs, this Toshiba 3D product is a cut above the rest and sets the standard for the future of TV viewing. Getting the balance between quality and price is the main thing for consumers to consider and fortunately this TV does this successfully.

At under £1,000, you will find that this LCD TV is not too overly priced and its level of performance means that it certainly lives up to the hype. If a good looking TV is what you are after then this would make for an excellent choice.

The image quality of this LCD TV is top notch and it boasts Passive Polarisation 3D technology which brings entertainment to life.

So if you have been equally impressed with this TV model and have just gone out and bought yourself one, you now need to consider the best way of making use of its amazing qualities. This means you need to think about top of the range TV brackets which are made for holding such a large screen.

Holding the weight of this 47” screen would be no problem for cantilever TV brackets such as these. The option to pull the screen out from the wall is a real bonus, as is being able to tilt it up and down too.

LCD TV brackets for better TV viewing

Moving on from CRT televisions, we have graduated to plasma, LCD and LED TVs, which reflect the latest technology. In order to keep these expensive pieces of equipment safe, experts suggest the use of LED or LCD TV brackets.

What to consider before you go bracketing

There is an upper limit as to how much weight a particular TV bracket can hold. It is imperative that the weight and size of the TV to be supported by the mount are checked before purchasing the brackets. In addition, you might want to consider the bigger picture and decide to buy mounts which can hold more than the actual weight of your television. While most brackets come with a safety range of extra weight they can hold, it is still better to be safe than sorry because there is no correcting the physical damage improper mounting might inflict on your television set.

A well-chosen set of brackets can help you in more ways than one. Aside from creating more space in your room, these brackets also contribute to the home décor and lend an elegant look to your home. A wall mounted TV is safer as it is not bumped against as frequently and there is little risk of breakage if it is supported by quality brackets.

There are rumours circulating about leading brands investing in research to manufacture foldable screens. However, TV brackets are a smart invention and here to stay as essential accessories for television screens and computer monitors alike.

LCD TV brackets- making dreams come true

Posted in LCD TV Brackets — Written by Jeffrey

All the technology in the world has gone into making lighter and sleeker television sets. What we need to do is to use them to our advantage without ruining our home décor. LCD TV brackets, available in different designs and sizes, play a significant role in holding your sleek and elegant LCD TV sets.

To pick the right bracket

The revolution started off with flat screens of different kinds; plasmas, LCDs and LEDs. All of these promise a crisper picture quality and a superior viewing experience. A variety of bracket models are available for holding such TV sets. Selecting the right bracket is no easy task as one has to be very careful when making this decision. Not every bracket can support all models of TV. Aside from dimensions and the appropriate weight sustaining capacities, the wall mount should have the same VESA configurations as the television set.

Brackets of different finishes are offered at cost effective rates. There are brackets which are rigid and do not allow for any adjustments. These are most suitable for office use where not too much flexibility is required.

However, for home use, slightly more expensive variants of mounts are in order. These let the user tilt, swivel and move the screen freely to varying degrees. Such TV brackets can also be adjusted to encompass the widest possible viewing angle.

Thus, for a great TV watching experience, these flexible LCD TV brackets are widely preferred despite being a bit more expensive than the rigid ones.
