At the present time, many people are buying LCD – monitors. In this article we will try to suggest how to choose a place to monitor how the connectors to understand, adjust the image. We hope very much that is written below will help you to install the equipment.
A flat screen can be mounted on a stand or hang on the wall. Any of these options will make your room more spacious. Do not forget to take into account the distance from the screen to the audience: to sit too close to the screen is not worth it, otherwise it will become visible pixels, which makes the picture less realistic. The distance should be at least three times greater than the width of the screen – to 42-inch model, should sit at a distance of just over three meters. Or choose a location so as to not have to move your head more than 30 degrees in each direction. Height of the screen should be installed such that the angle between eye level and the bottom edge of the screen does not exceed 15-20 degrees.
Lighting in the room
In daylight, with the largest LCD contrast. In the twilight of their black color may appear gray, especially on large screens (this disadvantage is reduced with each new generation of vehicles). Best of all plasma looks in the dark, but shows quite well in all conditions.
Now a lot of flat panel display is available with digital interfaces – their use maximizes the image quality. As long as there is no console DVI, or HDMI, the most popular alternative to them is RGB via SCART. With the proliferation of HDTV should expect the popularity of component video. Component and RGB – the best of analog interfaces, so make sure that your screen has the appropriate connectors. And because digital DVI and HDMI do not always guarantee the best quality, component and connector progressive scan may be the most attractive option.
By default, contrast and color saturation, are likely to be excessive. Use the calibration disk – such as Digital Video Essentials, or experiment with the settings, using different sources, as long as you do not find that most suits you. But do not forget that the brightness should provide a rich black color with no loss of detail in dark or dark-gray areas. Set the brightness level of about zero (usually mid-position control). Contrast should not cause blurring around bright objects or too accentuated contours.
Some models allow you to create different configuration settings for different inputs, including for analog broadcast, SCART, component and digital video inputs. In addition to the most extreme cases, try to refrain from including image processing systems. Noise Reduction (DNR) and the comb filters are suitable for analog TV, but not too convincing with digital TV and DVD
For best results …
In order to obtain a qualitative picture, connect to the display DVD-player, which supports progressive scan. Most of all, fit component, DVI-and HDMI-connection. To increase the visual clarity in some models of display system meets artificially improve the resolution. But sometimes, when her work experience side effects and artifacts. Note that holding down the brightness and contrast below the maximum, you will prolong the life of your plasma screen. New models of plasmas can bet on the longevity of traditional TV (usually a minimum of seven years, the typical home use), but over time their brightness will be reduced. Just be aware that LCDs do not fade, but we need every few years to change their backlight. Both technologies are subjected to “dead” (broken) pixels. But the “burning” plasma screen worse. If possible, always use screen savers.
