HDTV: Contrast Ratio.

Before comparing different HDTVs available in the market, it is necessary to know the parameters on which basis we can compare them. One of those parameters is ‘Contrast Ratio’.

  • Contrast ratio denotes the difference between the brightest whites and the darkest black a display can show.
  • The higher the contrast ratio, the greater the ability to show subtle color details. A 500:1 ratio means white is 500 times brighter than black.
  • Normally A contrast ratio of 400:1 or higher is good.
  • Be careful though. Manufacturers often overstate this number and it's a good idea to compare screens side-by-side with high contrast scenes.
