Article on Motion-Enhancing Features of New TVs

Monday August 4th, 2014 at 6:47pm

That TV show you're watching... have you thought lately about the frame rate it was shot at? Or that it was delivered to your TV at 60 "fields" per second, to match up with the standard refresh rate of 60Hz?

Newer LCD/LED TVs come with 120Hz or 240Hz refresh rates. Therefore the TV will show more images per second, and will actually have to create new frames to stitch between the actual frames. Instead of 24 frames per second, you end up watching more “fake frames" than real ones in what you’re watching, and the effect can be unnatural-looking. Check out this great article, here, that explains this "Soap Opera Effect" well.
