4 Vivid Reasons to Consider a Curved Screen LED TV

The TV industry is seeing much in the way of technical innovation, more and more rapidly with each passing year. Five years ago, large LED screens cost as much as a car and were largely limited to industrial purposes and the highest of the high end in home theater design. Now, big LED screens are available at every electronics store, and the next wave is a slight convex curve in large LED screens. But why the curve? Here’s why. Distortion Reduction The biggest benefit is that it reduces distortion. With a flat panel, objects that are in the center of the screen will seem larger and draw more attention than objects at the edges of the frame. You may not notice this when watching a movie, and it can be subtle until someone points it out to you, especially if you have a smaller screen. But it’ll stand out much more vividly during sports events and other live events where action happens all over the frame. This distortion reduction suits the eye and makes the broadcast much more natural. Improved Viewing Angles Another benefit are improved viewing angles.
