Frequently Asked Questions

Also called white level, contrast affects brightness and how well the TV can display near-white shadow detail.

The brightness of an LCD Monitor is measured in cd/m². Brightness is also called black level—and that’s a better term because it controls how dark the picture’s darkest areas can get, not the overall brightness. And that’s critical for getting top picture quality. Ideally, a TV should be able to display deep blacks without losing the near-black detail within the darkest areas. For outdoor displays, a brighter LCD screen would be preferable.

The aspect ratio of a LCD monitor, like any ratio, is a proportional representation expressed as two distinct numbers separated by a colon. The aspect ratio describes the correlation between width and height. Frequently encountered monitor aspect ratios include traditional 4:3, and widescreen 16:9. When a media file with 4:3 ratio gets publish on a 16:9 screen, the content will be stretched.

The difference between LCD and LED displays are the resolution and brightness. LED displays have lower resolution with high brightness, they are mostly utilized outdoors and large spaces. LCD displays have high resolution with relatively lower brightness which makes them ideal for indoor applications.
