Tri Star TV Installers calculator for estimating the distance to install your Plasma
or LCD Television.Tri Star TV Installers strive to give you the best
possible viewing experience when we install your Plasma TV or LCD TV. But one
thing we run into often is that customer don't have a proper perspective of how
close they can sit to a large screen television and still have a good viewing
experience. Sitting the right distance from your LCD TV or plasma television is
an important part of the getting the best viewing experience. Sitting too far
away from your screen definitely diminishes the overall impact of your
investment on your new flat screen television. Additionally, sitting too close
to a large screen is also less than ideal because you will find that you're
finding it hard to follow the action and could get that same feeling you get
from sitting to close to the screen at your local movie theater. If you're not
sure how far away you should install your television for optimum viewing,
consult our suggested viewing distance chart.
Remember that the distance is the center of where your installing the
screen and where your eyes will be when watching your new LCD or Plasma
Q: What is the
best distance to site from the television for the best viewing experience for
different screen sizes?
A: The best way to you
calculate viewing distance by multiplying one of the screen's dimensions
(height, width, or diagonal) by some fixed number. The calculator above can
give you recommendations for screen size and/or viewing distance. The top part
of the calculator will give you an optimal viewing distance based on the
screen size you enter in the left-hand column. The lower part of the
calculator should be used if you know where you want to put your television
but are unsure of what screen size to choose. Measure the distance from the
area where you will place the TV to your normal viewing area, enter the amount
in feet in the left-hand column and the calculator will display what we
believe is an optimal screensize in the right-hand column.
