Television was first invented in 1920 by John Baird as a mean of transmitting and receiving video signals over a distance. Since then, the technology has gone through many evolutions. From B&W to colored and then modern day 3d HDR TV transmission, the technology has survived almost a hundred years to now.
Today’s TV Technology:
In the past couple of years, television technology is shifting from LED to QLED and OLED. Organic Light Emitting Diode has no back light which allows these displays to be exceptionally thin (like 1mm deep). Its response time is a thousand time faster than normal LED which enables it to quickly react to fast moving objects. These televisions are exceptionally thin and flexible. LG has even created a prototype that can be rolled up. QLED is a Quantum LED technology used widely by Samsung. This technology is new and currently being used on traditional LCD to give it more color and vibrance.
Smart tv boxes are also becoming very popular due to their ability to convert any normal LED tv into a smart TV. Running on an android operating system, these boxes let you download many streaming apps from the internet and watch them on your TV screen. A popular android app called “Kody” allows you to watch videos from all major online videos platforms and a collection of over 10000 tv channels.
4K HDR video output means a video with a minimum resolution of 3840×2160 pixels. This allows a high amount of details in picture like clearly viewing dew drops on flower petals.
