Got A Tip?


Welcome to HD Living


You’ve decided to enter the high-definition world. Many things may have brought you to this point. You saw the big game on your buddy’s new flat screen. You caught a glimpse of an HD cooking program at the electronics store and have had the taste of fine French pastry on your tongue since. Or, that workhorse early-1990s TV you’ve loved so long has finally gone down for the count. No matter what has brought you to the HD party, you’re welcome to stay.

In the next 30 days, you’re going to:

  • Learn the HD jargon, so you can 1080p with the best of them.
  • Understand the basics on calibrations, wires, etc.
  • Get a taste for all of the other peripheral products that will give you the ultimate HD experience.

You’re beginning a journey that at times may seem needlessly complex or even physically challenging. However, at the end of the road lies visual beauty the depths of which a standard-definition TV has never known (and will never know).

DID YOU KNOW? The first commercial HDTV was developed by NHK in 1969, but the system did not become available until the 1990s.
