How to Choose the Right Multi-System Television for You:
Multi-System Televisions are just regular TVs that have the added benefit of being able to view all 3 different of Video Systems: PAL, Secam, and NTSC. In North America, we use the ATSC/NTSC Video Broadcast system, but other parts of the world use either the PAL Broadcast system or the SECAM Broadcast system. So, if you purchase a TV from your local electronics store, it will only accept the NTSC/ATSC Video Signal because that is how the manufacturer chose to produced it.
Television Manufacturers will not bother making their TVs capable of picking up all three Video Signals because that would cost them more money and more time to complete. So, in order to turn a standard TV into a Multi-System TV, a Video Signal Converter must be installed in it. We purchase and sell these Multi-System TVs specifically because they are guaranteed to work in any country worldwide, which is a big requirement for most of our potential customers.
The TVs we sell will never be found in your local BestBuy, Target, Frys, or other similar American electronics store. We carry all the major brand names: Sony, Samsung, Toshiba, Panasonic, LG, and more. We also carry every Size imaginable including 22", 23", 24", 32", 40", 42", 46", 48", 50", 55", 60", 70", and higher. All of our TVs are guaranteed to be Multi-System and Dual Voltage, which means they will automatically run on any voltage in any country.
It is important to note however, that in order to view American Broadcast Signals on our Multi-System TVs, you must have or obtain Cable or Satellite service from any of your local service providers here in the US. This is because you need to connect their Cable or Satellite box into our TV through the use of an HDMI Wire, RCA Wire, or Component or Composite Wire, not through the Coaxial connection. Our Multi-System TVs will not show American Broadcast Signals with through an Antenna. Here are some of the most popular Types of TVs and features that most potential customers look for:
LED, LCD, or Plasma?
LCD stands for “liquid crystal display”. LED TVs newer and are a subset of LCD TVs. LED, which stands for “light emitting diodes,” differs from LCD TVs in that LCDs use fluorescent lights while LEDs use those light emitting diodes. Also, the placement of the lights on an LED TV can differ. The fluorescent lights in an LCD TV are always behind the screen. On an LED TV, the light emitting diodes can be placed either behind the screen or around its edges. The difference in lights and in lighting placement has generally meant that LED TVs can be thinner than LCDs, although this is starting to change. It has also meant that LED TVs run with greater energy efficiency and can provide a clearer, better picture than the general LCD TVs.
LED TVs provide a better picture for two basic reasons. First, LED TVs work with a color wheel or distinct RGB-colored lights (red, green, blue) to produce more realistic and sharper colors. Second, light emitting diodes can be dimmed. The dimming capability on the back lighting in an LED TV allows the picture to display with a truer black by darkening the lights and blocking more light from passing through the panel. This capability is not present on edge-lit LED TVs; however, edge-lit LED TVs can display a truer white than the fluorescent LED TVs. Because all these LCD TVs are thin-screen, each has particular angle-viewing and anti-glare issues. The backlit TVs provide better, cleaner angle viewing than the edge-lit LED TV. However, the backlit LED TV will usually have better angle viewing than the standard LCD TV. Both LED and LCD TVs have good reputations for their playback and gaming quality.
Plasma screens are better for larger screen sizes (more than 42 inches). In addition, due to the different technology used in each type of screen, plasma screens are more suitable for the subdued lighting in a living room, while LCD screens do fine in a well-lit area. Advantages of LCD screens are that they usually have better resolution, they're more energy efficient (sometimes using half the power of a plasma screen), and they're lighter, making them more portable than plasma screens. The advantages of plasma screens are that the colors are more vibrant, the blacks are deeper, and even viewers sitting at extreme angles can still see a decent picture. While plasma screens used to do better than LCDs in terms of fast-moving images not producing a blur, it seems that LCDs are starting to improve in this area.
While there is no standard rule for how to setup your TV in your room, the above photo gives you a general idea of how far you should place your TV from your sitting area. Even though it is not recommended to place a large TV in a small room because you would be sitting so close to the TV that you would see pixelation which would ruin the clarity of the picture, many customers get around this issue by purchasing a higher quality of TV, such as a "4K" TV.
Brand names are more a matter of personal preference. There isn't one single brand that is superior in every way to the others. Usually, the most expensive TVs are the ones that are sold by Sony and Pioneer, but not always, it all depends on what features the TV offers. All manufacturers have their own brand-specific features to offer, but generally, most features are available on every TV in some way. This doesn't mean that all TVs are the same, because some TVs lack features while having great quality, some TVs have great Features but lack quality, and a few TVs are the best of both; if there is a specific feature that you need or want, then the best way to find it is to contact us so we can find one for you, or just read the description of the TV that interests you.
2D or 3D?
3D is a feature on higher-end LED, LCD, and plasma TVs released since around 2009. It allows those TVs to display specialized, "made-in-3D" video with the right accessories -- specifically special "3D Wearable Eye-Glasses" and a 3D Blu-Ray Player. It is important to note that all 3D TVs will display current 2D content with no problem, no glasses required, and no loss in video or sound quality. While 3D is a truly an extraordinarily immersive, unique experience, most people tend to purchase the standard 2D TVs instead, possibly because they are always cheaper than 3D TVs. If you have children, they will certainly enjoy the 3D experience, just keep in mind that if you choose a 3D TV then you will also have to purchase a 3D Blu-Ray player and 3D Blu-Ray Discs in the future as well.
4K or 1080p?
As you can tell from the above picture, a 4K TV picture will be four times larger in pixel density than a 1080p picture. This does not mean the actual TV will be physically bigger, just the amount of pixels that are found on that TV's screen; the physical size of a TV has nothing to do with the resolution because there are 55 Inch 1080p TV's available and also 55 Inch 4K TV's available. Since 4K is the newest and best picture quality in the market today and in the near future, the price of 4K TVs will be much higher than any other resolution. Generally, most people have no issues with 1080p picture quality and it is already the standard quality for most Television broadcasts.
Wireless Internet Capability is the most requested feature that we hear about from our customers, besides TV Size and Resolution. We believe many customers enjoy the option of not having to connect an extra wire to their TV just to connect to the internet. Plus, the built-in Apps that are available on all of the Wi-Fi Enabled TVs are so convenient that they become requirements instead of bonuses. Who wouldn't want to be able to check their Facebook status from their TV while they are watching the news or their favorite show? Why not use that Netflix account to catch a movie through the use of the built-in Netflix App that usually comes standard on nearly all Wi-Fi Enabled TVs? The possibilities are endless when you are connect the rest of the world through Wireless Internet. Take advantage of this feature whenever you can.
OLED Future-Proof Technology
This is what you've been waiting for: OLED Ultra-Thin, Ultra-Light, Ultra-Realistic Television. For anyone who is looking to not purchase another TV for the next 20 years, this is the type of TV for you. There will never be a thinner TV, a lighter, a more detailed TV than what an OLED TV can give to you right now; this is the top of the top, the best of the best. As you can see in the photo above of a model that was just announced (as of June, 2015), an OLED is thinner than any Cell Phone available to date. This type of TV is made for anyone who wants to "future-proof" themselves, meaning anyone who doesn't want to worry about technology passing by them.
