A recent study in the US carried out by CBS Vision for technology firm 3M has shown that high brightness and quality are at the top of the list for consumers whatever angle they watch their LCD televisions from.
The research looked at how televisions are used for gaming and web connectivity as well as TV viewing, the needs of consumers is becoming far more demanding.
Americans expect their LCD TVs to become central to their entertainment requirements as they view them from a number of different angles. Despite moving around into different positions in the room, users still wish to see a crisp and consistently bright image from their unit.
Older viewers from the 600 people questioned were especially concerned with wide-angle viewing, which was crucial to their overall experience.
Chief research officer, CBS Corporation and president, CBS Vision, David Poltrack, said:
“We were pleased to team up with 3M to take a closer look at the fundamentals surrounding consumers’ LCD television viewing experience.
“We learned that consumers don’t always realize that the way they watch their LCD TV impacts the quality of what they see.”
Physicist at 3M, Dave Lamb, who was also the scientific adviser, explained how the study was aimed at understanding how important wide-angle luminance was to consumers.
If you want to be able to see the screen properly when watching television, mounting the unit on the wall using TV brackets can help you to find the best angle. Flexible wall mounts can be moved into position accordingly.
