How to calculate the optimal height of TV？
If you want the TV to be in a comfortable position, you need to find the horizontal position of your line of sight, not tilt up or down. Here are some ways to solve this problem:
- Sit comfortably on the sofa and measure the height between the ground and your eyes.
- Measure the same height on the TV wall and mark the point with a pencil.
- Align the center of your TV with the penciled point.
If you install the TV in a high place, such as above the fireplace, you can choose a tilting TV bracket so that you can adjust it downward.
Manage your lighting
If your room is sunny, you should avoid putting the TV in direct sunlight. Or buy a full motion TV wall mount so you can move the TV to avoid glare.
If you like watching TV in a dark room, you may have noticed that your eyes begin to shed tears or dry, or sometimes you even feel nervous and headache. This is because your eyes are constantly adjusting between the dark room and the TV screen.
If you want to avoid this situation, please place a neutral color light behind the TV to produce the so-called “polarized light”, which can improve the ambient lighting level of the room without making the TV image look worse.
Tip: don’t choose color polarization because it will lose color in TV images.
Polarized lighting can also counteract the glare of the floor lamp (such as reading lamp, table lamp or ceiling lamp) behind you. If placed improperly, it will reduce the contrast of the TV and produce glare and blurred images.
Polarized lighting is also suitable for reflection problems on curved TVs. Curved TVs sometimes stretch and distort reflections to make them more prominent than flat panel TVs.
