When Bjorn’s first opened in 1975, TVs with 25” picture tubes were considered big screens; and there were only a handful of channels to choose from. Betamax and VHS were the state-of-the-art when it came to recording TV shows or watching movies. There was no such thing as a “home theater”—in fact, back then Bjorn’s didn’t even sell television sets.
Walk in the door at Bjorn’s now and you’ll see plenty of TVs—all of which look sharper, brighter, and clearer than we ever dreamed they could 40 years ago. For example, the new 4K Ultra HD TVs have at least 8 million active pixels. That’s four times as many pixels as 1080p HDTVs have, and the picture quality is so good you might have to remind yourself you’re not looking through a window.
Ultra HD isn’t the only breakthrough that’s making TV technology exciting this year. Although we’ve been waiting for several years, OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TVs are finally here! If you haven’t heard (or seen), OLED displays are super-slim and have exceptional contrast and color rendition that’s superior to any other technology for making flat-panel displays.
Many of the new OLED sets are coming with a twist—well, with a curve, actually. A curved screen, that is, and the breathtaking beauty of the image displayed on an OLED curved screen will captivate you like no TV has done before.
4K Ultra HDTV, is the hottest technology in TV right now and we have been a huge supporter of it since it was released a short 2 1/2 years ago. 4K resolution is effectively four times (3840 x 2160 pixels) that of Full HD (2K), so you’ll see the picture, not the pixels, even up close. The first time you see it, you might not believe your eyes. It really is like looking through a window. Movies will be more detailed than you’ve ever seen before, and sports in 4K will make you feel like you’re actually at the game. Even your cable/satellite signal and Bluray content will be enhanced, as every 4K television upconverts any 2K content to near 4K resolution! Prepare yourself for the ultimate evolution in picture quality – 4K Ultra HD.
Experience a true game changer in television innovation; OLED TV. We have always been one of the first to offer you the latest and greatest and that is no different with OLED TV’s. Organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) turn on and off individually, which allows them to deliver deeper blacks and brighter, more life like colors than ever before. OLED TV‘s are thinner (4.5 mm at its thinnest point), lighter, and extremely energy efficient. OLED will change the way you watch television forever. From stunning picture quality to detail and clarity like you have never seen before, OLED is sure to wow. Experience your favorite television shows, movies, games, videos and music in a whole new way.
Add a little curve to your life! Why are Curved TV‘s so great? In theory, by curving the edges gently forward, curved TV‘s appear to fill more of your field of view and provide a more immersive experience compared to flat ones. A curved television also creates more sharpness at the edges of the image, the wide viewing angle assures a consistently beautiful picture across the entire screen with virtually no variance in picture quality and the off-angle viewing makes any seat the best seat in the house!
