Description

Are you getting the most of your HDTV? Are you really seeing the best picture possible on your new HDTV for the big game or movie night?

Are you sitting too close or too far away from your HDTV? Are you looking to buy a new HDTV but not sure what size to get for your home or room? Want to get the largest HDTV possible without getting one that's too big for your room? The HDTV Calculator allows you to quickly answer these questions and give you the optimum HDTV viewing experience!

If you sit too close to an HDTV you won't be able to see the full picture and you may even see the pixelation of the screen. This could fatigue your eyes and neck and limit your viewing or gaming enjoyment. However, if you sit too far away from your new HDTV you could be missing out on the finer details that make high definition televisions so amazing.

Television manufacturers, home theater enthusiasts and video experts all have different opinions on what the perfect viewing distance is for a given TV, but most now offer a range of distances based on television size and resolution. Many experts suggest taking the diagonal measurement of your HDTV and multiplying it by anywhere from 1.25 through 2.5 for the best viewing experience. This HDTV calculator does the work for you on the fly so you can quickly figure out what size HDTV your room can handle or how far away you should be seated away from your television to get the best experience.

Features
-TV Size calculator based on seating distance
-Seating distance calculator based on room size

-Calculations for HDTVs from 15" to 90" diagonal measurements
-Calculates for seating distances from 1' 6" to 18' 2"
-Ability to use a custom value for your own viewing preferences

The calculator is designed to display distance and size recommendations for HDTV devices with a 720p or 1080p screen resolution that have a 16:9 width:height ratio. Graphics in the app do change as you increase distance and screen size, but they are for visual clarity and not to scale. This is a consumer grade high definition television size and distance calculator and may not suit the needs of professional home theater installers or enthusiasts. Calculations are rounded to the nearest inch for convenience.

Don't forget to bring this app when you go shopping for HDTVs! One calculation could save you hundreds of dollars by helping you avoid TVs that are too small or too large for your home. This app will give you minimum and maximum suggestions for your viewing distance and HDTV size, but ultimately, your own personal viewing preference is what matters most!
