Is Samsung 4K 50" monitor better than 1080p at displaying text?
Posted on 2015-02-16
I am researching displays to see which model would better show TEXT for demonstration purposes in a conference room setting. I am comparing the 1080p Samsung UN48H5500 and the 4K HU6950. I am inserting the dialogue between myself and the Samsung rep, any input would be appreciated.
Christopher: I am inquiring about two different displays.
Vega J: Hello, Good Morning.
Vega J: Sure, I will help you with the information.
Christopher: The first is UN48H5500AFXZA which has a diagonal dot pitch of 0.55 mm and the second is UN50HU6950FXZA which has a diagonal dot pitch of 0.54 mm
Christopher: A) is this correct? and B) which display will allow me to view text clearer
Christopher: It will be used as a monitor attached to a PC for display purposes and text clarity is important
Vega J: Could you give me a few minutes while I gather the information for you?
Christopher: Yes, thank you
Vega J: Thank you.
Vega J: I appreciate your time and patience.
Vega J: Yes, your correct.
Christopher: I am correct how?
Christopher: Which device will be better in the case of viewing the text?
Vega J: Both the TVs can view the text clearer, However HU6950 will be good than the H5500 model TV.
Vega J: H5500 come with 120 CMR, where as HU6950 come with 240 CMR.
Vega J: The picture quality will be more in HU6950 than the H5500 model TV.
Vega J: Higher the CMR, higher the picture quality.
Vega J: Clear Motion Rate was developed to accurately measure how well an LCD or LED TV can depict fast moving images. Previously, motion-clarity was calculated by the frame refresh rate alone. But CMR offers a more complete measure by calculating 3 factors: frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology.
Vega J: This is the reason HU6950 has better viewing the text.
