Over the past 30 years, television screens have been getting bigger and bigger. With this immense growth of the average television set has also seen improvements in quality of picture and the technology used in making the sets themselves. Whilst television screen have become bigger, their overall bulk has gotten smaller, with less than 20cm needed at the rear of the screen to save on space. This has led to many people wishing to mount their televisions on their walls to save on the immense space a giant 60” screen can take up.
Saving space of your living room
TV wall mount installation not only allows you to reclaim a huge section of your living room back from the television, but it also allows you to get a more cinematic sense in your own home. Raising your television off of a lower stand will help improve the way you enjoy your favourite films and allow you to get the best seat in the house, every time.
Everyone gets the best seat in the house
The optimal viewing angle of many flat-screen televisions has been known to be relatively narrow. Raiding your television set higher in your room will allow you to place it anywhere on any wall and allow the whole family to get the best seat. Due to the dot pitch of LCD screens, some colours, luminescence and even contrast can be affected by the angle you view it from, making for a huge distraction when watching a film.
TV wall mount installation will cure this issue by being able to position and tilt your television set to many different angles around your room. These simple attachments are made possible with most modern flat-screen televisions that have the correct attachment screws on the back of the housing. Fixing to your wall can be done in a few simple sets, but many people prefer to hire the services of a professional television engineer to ensure that the television is secured and safe in its new position.
Multiple fixing standards available
If your flat screen television does not have the correct fixings on the rear of the housing, there are a number of other options you can choose from to mount your television on any wall. A professional television engineer will be able to talk you through the different options possible for your specific needs. Many popular alternatives include cradle type fixings that clasp your television securely and allow fixing of the cradle directly to the wall of your choice.
Other than the benefit of being able to enjoy all of your television and films from an improved viewing angle, there are actually health benefits associated with viewing television at an optimum distance. A poorly positioned television will cause neck strain and cramp in circumstances where an extended period of viewing takes place.
Safe, secure and strain-free!
Eye strain also occurs when the television set is either too close or too far away to correctly view. The optimum viewing distance is determined by the fidelity of the image at any given distance. Ideally you should not be close enough to see the individual pixels on the television, as well as being too far away to not be able to detect the crispness of the image.
Providing your tv wall mount installation is done professionally, you will be able to enjoy a safe and secure viewing experience, free of neck pain and eye strain. Not only will your flat screen television be enjoyed by all of the family from any angle, but knowing your expensive television is secured firmly to a wall will also help to deter burglars and thieves wishing to make off with it. Whether you choose a simple cradle, or a motorised locking unit, you can enjoy all of your entertainment with an improved view for those big sports events to come.
