Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, Australia, has around three hundred days of sunshine each year. The coldest months of Brisbane are June and July with coldest average maximum temperatures of 22 degrees Celsius. It is rare for Brisbane temperatures to go below 20 degrees. The number of sunny days with cool to warm temperatures make Brisbane the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors.
However, with the COVID-19 virus still looming around, a majority of the people have opted to stay indoors for fear of contracting the deadly and infectious respiratory disease. Fortunately, advancement in the entertainment industry gave rise to video-on-demand and streaming video sites to keep people entertained in their homes. Because of the rise of different movie streaming services, there is an increase in the number of home theatre installation in Brisbane projects.
If you are planning to have a home theatre installed in your home, your priority should be choosing your TV. The television is the main focal point of your home theatre system. Before, home theatre systems use LED projectors to project movies to a larger scale. However, the quality of televisions today outmatches what projectors can bring. Besides, TVs now come in super large sizes ranging from 55 inches to 88 inches which are ideal sizes for a family home theatre. Here three factors to consider when choosing a TV for your home theatre.
If you are allocating an entire room of your home for a home theatre system, then the minimum size of your TV should be 55 inches. If you have a larger room, then opt for larger screen size. The size of your TV should correlate to the available space and the distance your viewers will sit. However, in today’s standards, bigger is always better.
Resolution and Display Technology
The most important consideration when choosing a TV is the resolution and display technology. The better the resolution, the higher the quality of the picture. As of writing this article, there are already 8K resolution TVs that are being launched in the market. Unfortunately, the majority of available movies that are streamed online are still using the 4K resolution. Having a 4K TV for your home theatre will already give you extremely high-resolution pictures and videos. However, 4K TVs are still categorised into the following:
- Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) TV
OLED TVs are the top of the line when it comes to 4K resolution TVs. Most OLED TV panels are manufactured by LG and are licensed by different brand manufacturers. OLED technology allows TVs to become much thinner because each LED can already produce every element of light and colour. This capability of OLED TV reduces the need for layers making these TVs come in thinner panels.
- Quantum dot Light Emitting Diode (QLED) TVs
Not to be outdone, Samsung answered the OLED technology with their version known as Quantum dot Light Emitting Diode or QLED. This technology offers transmissive displays having the light and colour sources being different from one another. With this technology, the light and colours are amplified once the light strikes a quantum dot film.
- LED TVs
LED TVs have separate diodes that produce light and colours. LED TVs share the same technology with Samsung’s QLED technology minus the amplification coming from the quantum dot film. LED TVs are the most common type of 4K TVs and are affordable to most people.
There are a lot of TV manufacturers to choose from; however, most of the panels used by these manufacturers may come from LG. Sony and Panasonic have their versions of LED panels as well. Nevertheless, each TV manufacturer may have added features to their TV brands. Your choice of TV will depend on your preference.
When choosing a TV for a home theatre installation in Brisbane, it is also important to check for the availability of multiple connectors at the back of your TV to connect other external devices that will allow you complete your home theatre experience.
