So why are curved TVs so popular? Well, here are some reasons that will make you want to head down to the store straight away to pick one up.
You get more immersed in the screen
When we look out at the world we don’t look at it as if it is flat, that’s why a flat screen really doesn’t seem too natural. Our eyeballs are round, curved TVs try to copy the sense of the world that we see when we open our eye. This gives the user a more immersed viewing experience.
You feel that your view is wider
If you’re sat in the correct position then a curved TV will fill a whole lot more of your field of view than that of a flat screen TV. Make sure you’re sat in the right place to really get the full benefits!
The edges of the TV are sharper
Due to the fact that curved TVs are similar to the natural shape or our eyes, it means that around the edges curved TVs appear to have a sharper image. Having said that, this sharpness is only really relevant to larger TVs of around 60 inches or more.
Picture have more depth
If you watch a movie on a curved TV the first thing you will think is that it is almost like watching a 3D movie. The reason for this is because the curve in the screen make the movies appear on several depth planes – this is just the same process used when producing a 3D movie.
