    High Definition Television or HDTV is the latest on TV technology. HDTV is better than most of the available TVs today in many ways; in sound, resolution and imaging.

    Favorite HDTV Features

    Various technologies implemented on various HDTV's outclassed most of the technologies in digital TVs:

    1. HDTV have about twice the picture resolution in terms of the vertical and horizontal as compared to any analog or digital TV available today. This makes the HDTV picture sharper and clearer than most of the TVs today.

    2. HDTV have a wider screen with a screen or aspect ratio of about 16: 9 as compared to the 4:3 screen or aspect ratio of most analog or digital TVs.

    An aspect ratio is the width of a picture screen relative to its height. So an aspect ratio of 4:3 means that the picture screen is 4 feet wide and 3 feet high. This means that the best picture screen available for HDTV's today is 16 feet wide and 9 feet high. This large screen will provide more detail resulting in a crisper image.

    3. HDTV have also managed to reduce motion artifacts that includes ghosting or dot crawl on the screen.

    4. HDTV also have a Dolby A3 Surround System. It offers 5.1 independent channels of CD-quality stereo surround sound. This is also referred as AC-3.

    All in all, HDTV's displays pictures in a higher resolution with greater detail than most of the analog or digital TVs. Images are sharper and clearer and HDTV's offers the best digital sound available to the consumer.

    The HDTV Converters

    HDTV converters are used to directly convert digital signals from a satellite broadcast into HDTV format for viewing in most analog TVs instead of implementing an analog conversion that is inferior in terms of picture and image viewing.

    Simply put, HDTV converters avoid analog conversions of digital signals resulting to a much improved picture on analog TVs. The picture and image on an analog TV that used a HDTV converter is similar to the picture and image from a DVD movie that is played in an analog TV.

    Similarly, HDTV shows from satellite broadcasts can be shown in an analog TV using the HDTV converter. The picture and image will be inferior but at least are much more tolerable.

    The Best Set-Up for HDTV

    The most ideal set-up for HDTV is by receiving a pure digital signal directly via cable either by DirecTV or by the Dish Network. These pure digital signals are received by a digital receiver and are displayed on a digital TV set.

    Consumers that are looking for the best can opt for a front or rear projection HDTV set or also a plasma set with a similar 16:9 aspect ratio.

    People who wants to test the HDTV technology but are not really sure of what they really want can opt for a HDTV-ready digital TV instead. HDTV-ready TVs are much more cheaper than the actual HDTVs.

    The out of the box HDTV systems usually have a high definition tuner built inside it. Though, the addition of high definition tuner makes it more expensive, it nonetheless an advantage that is made for the convenience of the most enthusiastic viewer.
