Features to look for in EOFY 2022 sales
1. Screen technology
Perhaps the most important aspect to consider when purchasing a new television in 2022 is its display technology. TV manufactures like to throw around numerous acronyms, including OLED, QLED and LED-LCD, and it's important to know the benefits and drawbacks of each.
OLED technology, or organic light-emitting diodes, employs self-lighting pixels that can be controlled individually. That means that individual pixels have the ability to lower in brightness or turn off completely to achieve complete blackness in dark scenes. Of course, due to their organic nature, OLED TVs have been known to suffer from burn-in on some occasions. That said, the technology is generally considered the current high-watermark in display technology.
LED-LCD, while an older technology that requires a physical backlight solution, continues to thrive in all other non-OLED televisions. The addition of actual backlights on LED panels means they're able to achieve much higher levels of brightness than OLED sets, however, they aren't able to achieve true blacks at a pixel-level.
Meanwhile, QLED, despite being at the forefront of TV technology, is actually just a tweaked version of LED-LCD tech that employs a quantum dot filter to bring increased colour volume and brightness to whatever you're watching. That means incredibly vibrant images all round.
2. Smart functionality (OS)
Modern televisions all run on smart TV platforms, and for the most part, the operating system you end up with will depend entirely on your chosen manufacturer.
Sony and TCL televisions favour the Android TV platform, which offers access to thousands of apps on the Google Play store. That means video games, video apps like VLC, ROM emulators... you name it.
LG has its own webOS platform which is built around remote pointer navigation, while Samsung's Smart Hub OS is based on Tizen and uses a pop-up menu that lets you cycle through options while your content plays in the background. Hisense also has its own smart TV platform in VIDAA U, which lets users cycle through a ribbon of apps and functions on their home screen. Though all three are quite fast, they are fairly limited in the apps department.
3. HDR10/Dolby Vision support
While resolution has been the key factor for many when it comes to watching content at the highest quality possible, HDR or high-dynamic-range is equally important.
HDR brings a wider colour gamut to your content, allowing for more intense and lifelike colours, as well as improved contrast and colour gradations.
Making matters somewhat confusing for consumers, there are competing HDR formats in HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, which both offer their own take on dynamic metadata that aims to adjust your colour and contrast on a scene-by-scene basis.
You can find out more about each HDR format below.
4. Next-gen features
If you're an avid gamer, it's a good idea to future-proof your television purchase by investing in a TV that offers the latest HDMI 2.1 features and a dedicated game mode.
HDMI 2.1 is the latest HDMI specification, and is required for those wanting to take full advantage of PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. HDMI 2.1 allows your TV to display to reach refresh rates of up to 120Hz at 4K resolution, meaning ultra-smooth gameplay for games which support it.
In addition to enhanced refresh rates, HDMI 2.1 also brings eARC functionality, allowing your TV to output lossless high-end audio formats like Dolby Atmos and DTS:X to your soundbar or receiver. Without eARC, your audio will output in a compressed manner.
