Despite major advances in technology, viewing angle remains a serious challenge for LCD and LED TVs. This paper will examine research on LCD viewing angle issues and show how full-motion and tilting wall mounts can alleviate this issue and help consumers get the most out of their television investment.
Walk into a local custom theater store or big box retailer, and it's hard not to be impressed. Row upon row of the latest and greatest LED and LCD TVs displaying bone crushing NFL hits and action scenes from the latest 3D movies. Yet, after dishing out thousands of dollars for a new set with picture enhancement technologies, such as dynamic backlight and dynamic color, consumers are often left asking the same question: Why doesn't my new TV picture look as good as it did at the store?
In many cases, the answer is simple geometry. LCD TVs may display awe-inspiring images when viewed front and center, but sit a few feet to the left or right and there is a noticeable loss of picture brightness as well as change in color. In fact, recent studies suggest the viewing range for seeing the most vivid picture on an LCD TV is merely one person wide. While TV manufacturers have taken small steps to address this issue in recent years, the most current Consumer Reports TV ratings indicate that over half the TVs tested received only a fair or good viewing angle scorewell below the excellent score that most tube-style TVs were rated at in past years. This paper will take a look at how viewing angle plays a vital role in getting the most out of the TV viewing experience. It will show that placing a TV on a full- motion (up and down, plus side-to-side motion) or tilting (up and down motion only) wall mount is the most effective way to overcome limitations posed by off-center viewing.
