  • According to RTINGS resolution per viewing distance ideals.... the only person that actually would actually significantly benefit from 4k is Taran, The THX max recomended zone only slightly benefits from 4k, while the SMPTE zone is just under the perfect distance to fully benefit from 1080p interesting stuff

  • It seems that with 4k resolution you are finally able to sit closely enough to your TV such that you meet the SMPTE and THX recommended distances, but are far enough away to not be able to discern individual pixels. If this is the case, are there any real benefits to pushing resolutions on new TVs beyond 4k?

  • This video is really relevant to me as I daily drive a 55" Samsung NU8500 as a monitor for work and gaming at about 30". I run it at 1440p 120 Hz. Is there a difference in immersive viewing angle when using it as a monitor and as a tv?

    Regal R4Regal R4Il y a 2 mois
  • The formula to calculate the optimal distance for sitting infront of your screen is [H/(2*nz*tan(1.5/0.5))] with H= Height of Display and nz= being the pixelcount horizontally. :)

  • 0:50 - www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/by-size/size-to-distance-relationship -- Don't believe this! I'm on a 32" monitor, at about 34", depending on how I'm sitting. Naturally, if I'm hunched over the keyboard or sitting way back in my chair, that will change. The BEST rule of thumb is to take the WIDTH (NOT the diagonal) of your monitor. You should be sitting at 1 to 1.5 times that distance. With a 32" monitor (31.5 diagonal display), the width is 27" (diagonal measurement x 0.857), which means my sweet spot is 27"-40.5" which is RIGHT where I am. At that distance, it's PERFECT for your field of vision. If you believe the table shown on the screen, I should be at 54". That would make the display TOO small to make use of my field of vision. 2:17 - The "THX recommended distance" is 8.6". The "sweet spot" of 4k over 1080p is at 7.1" to 10.6". That makes somewhere around NINE FEET (NOT almost twelve feet) the best distance for this size display. 3:05 - That would be the 1940s, Linus...NOT the '70s. >facepalm< 6:14 - Basically, everyone in the farther group (including Linus) might just as well be watching a 1080p display because they won't be able to discern any difference. A few years ago, Consumer Reports did a real world test, using a 55" display. EVERY person tested could NOT discern ANY difference until they were MUCH closer than the distance at which they CLAIMED to be able to tell.

    Marco Polo G.Marco Polo G.Il y a 2 mois
  • With an 8k high PPI TV and a source/movie/game that has very wide FOV that it should have I would sit as close as I can without seeing individual pixels. But film makers don't want to do wide FOV as majority of people has a small 1080p TV or regular narrow FOV theater... so we get these zoomed in movies where it's cheaper to produce as less of the set is visible and human heads take are gigantic portion of the image making it uncomfortable to sit close. There are some older movies made on film with wide angle lenses and great scenes that showed the widescreen well when everything was old super narrow FOV still but then it got super commercialized and cheaper options available for that format and back it went to zoomed in narrow FOV as it's cheaper to make movies in. It's all about what your source FOV is and what viewing FOV you can handle with it. A game set to 90 hFOV will be a very different experience compared to a 140 hFOV at equal distance, the same applies to movies.

  • i understand having a tv that fills enough of your fov without getting too close, and in understand wanting a bigger tv in a bigger space or if you have more people watching (plus it gives more room for surround sound setups) but a tv that's so big it'd be up against one wall of my room and i'd be against the other seems ridiculous. 89" is not a average living room type of screen. definitely more for a large dedicated entertainment centre
