For a generation, TVs have been in the background – in more ways than one – of household entertainment. Desktop computers, laptops, smart phones and tablets have taken over as the dominant entertainer in the home. But not anymore.
Smart TVs have turned the humble appliance into the focus of the modern home, and the big brands have responded by taking that to the next level. And they have done it in a way that’s not complicated. In fact, TVs have probably never been easier to use.
The most recent models on the market allow users to do virtually anything and everything from the comfort of the sofa.
The obvious place to start when you’re talking TVs is the quality of the display. Ultra High Definition technology delivers 4K cinema resolution. Both models boast more than one billion colours, and no backlight, allowing for hair-raising detail that is enhanced by stunning Dolby sound. All of that technology is run by the latest intelligent processors that enhance everything frame by frame.
Talking about state-of-the-art technology, LG offers an “enhanced interactive experience” through its intelligent voice-activated control. Now you can control your TV with your voice.
Samsung’s Q7 is designed so every chord is bundled into a simple cable. One clear connection lets users store all their devices out of sight.
And then there are the things that make modern TVs smart, really smart. Access to the web and streaming Netflix, Stan or other services is simple, all using just one remote control. Samsung’s Q7 can easily synch to other Samsung devices and connect smart devices around the house, including the fridge, washing machine and dryer. In fact, everything can be monitored from the TV. There you are, sitting on the sofa watching TV, and an alert pops up telling you the washing in finished. There’s no excuses for ignoring household chores anymore!
Importantly, all the latest smart TVs are designed to make your home look great. They are sleek, lightweight and delicately framed to blend in with your surroundings. Samsung’s Q7 becomes a feature of the wall itself when it’s turned off and in ambient mode. Users can choose an interactive background that goes with the wall or room, or use a display, photos or details of the weather outside, that float around the screen.
TVs are no longer just background noise or something to watch when there is nothing else to do. Modern televisions are technological marvels that allow you to have all your entertainment needs in one room, and still be with your family.
