Have you ever had the experience of going to see a new release film in theatres, loving it on the big screen, and then, after some time has passed, watching it again at home, and you ended up not liking the movie as much? We don’t even need you to answer that question; we have a good feeling that the answer is yes!
So what was it that got lost in translation from seeing that movie on the big screen to watching the exact same film in the privacy of your own home? The reason is obvious: it isn’t just the famous buttered popcorn or the leather recliners that were absent. Chances are, the drastically smaller screen size made a big difference on your enjoyment of one or several films at some point in your life.
Luckily, the 4k HDTV television is every entertainer lovers’ dream come true. It truly brings all the thrills of big-screen action into your living room. Trust us; once you have one of these in your home, you’ll never want to watch TV any other way again. But just because you make the leap and purchase this incredible TV, that doesn’t mean that it is automatically set up to give you the best possible viewing experience.
Here are a few ways to make sure you are getting the most out of your 4K HDTV:
Turn Down the Sharpness
Make sure your television’s sharpness, or edge enhancement option is set to zero. In the modern age of streaming television and HGTV, many shows and films produced today already enhance their edges when in production. So, avoid the halo effect when watching your TV and let the professionals take care of filming their shows with the best possible quality.
Adjust Brightness and Contrast
While the backlight should reflect the brightness of the room you’re watching in, the contrast may need to be slightly tweaked depending on what you are viewing. No matter what show is on, make sure that details of the shot are clearly visible; if they aren’t playing with the contrast until it looks correct.
Look at Port and Cord Placement
Not all HDMI cables and ports are the same. Use the cable that came with your HDR-capable devices, such as UHD Blu-ray player, an Xbox One S or X, a PlayStation 4 Pro, or a Roku Ultra. If that’s not going to work, then you’ll want to update your HDMI cable.
When it comes to your home’s television set, it really is true what they say; size does matter. Binge watching your favorite Netflix show or putting in your favorite DVD is an entirely different experience on a large screen with a quality sound system. Because let’s face it, whether it’s the latest Star Wars movie or a Super Bowl championship, some things just need to be experienced in a larger than life capacity.
