Find out everything you need to know about Ultra HD Certified TVs, what this standard means and why it’s important to you.
4K UHD TVs offer you an incredible picture clarity, but some are more detailed and vivid than others. An easy way to find these higher quality TVs is to look out for an Ultra HD Certification logo. The logo tells you that the TV has been recognised for offering a true Ultra High Definition experience. This sought-after award is granted by the DIGITALEUROPE, an organisation that includes a group of major TV brands across the continent.
Certified Ultra HD Premium
4K TVs have 3840x2160 pixels which are little dots on the TV screen. But on some TVs, not every pixel is the same. Some TVs have pixels that can only turn white, instead of full colour. This gives an illusion of 4K. You can’t see these white pixels with the naked eye, but the picture can appear slightly more blurred. It’s still sharper than a Full HD TV, but a Certified TV will be incredibly vibrant.
This Premium Certification is the gold medal standard. TVs with this logo have two key features that really set them apart and get you closer to a more life-like picture. These TVs can produce a wider range of colour than ever before giving you more vibrant detail, and HDR ramps up the contrast, making everything look incredibly realistic.
With a Certified TV, true UHD standards have been met. Every single pixel is fully coloured you’re still getting a better quality image than on a non-certified TV. This means you’ll enjoy a super-sharp picture whatever you’re watching.
TVs aren’t the only thing invited to the Certified Ultra HD Premium party. There are plenty of Blu-Ray Players that are given this special seal of approval too. These let you enjoy your films with incredible detail and lifelike colours with HDR. They also feature high quality audio, so the amazing picture is accompanied by a stunning sound. When you partner a Certified Ultra HD Premium Blu-ray player with a Certified TV, you’ll enjoy a true cinema experience, right in your living room.
