I have noticed sometimes, that when I am in restaurants or offices, I can stare at the TVs they have with very few symptoms. I would go as far as to say fairly easy on the eyes. I was at the doctors office and found myself watching HGTV for longer than I had expected. I asked the receptionist what brand of TV it was and she was actually able to get me a printout of the model.
Turns out it was a “Comercial” TV that is also used for digital signage. It’s the Samsung 55 inch BE55T-H.
I have theories about this TV.
- Since it’s meant for business, it likely doesn’t use a lot of in depth color tricks (i.e.temporal dithering may be minimized).
- The light output isn’t huge coming in at 250 nits. (Less searing of the eyes)
- No HDR. Hopefully less processing.
- It may still use PWM for dimming though, so please keep this in mind. I’m not sure.
This TV comes in 4 sizes which is cool for options. I plan on buying one and stashing it for when one of mine dies. I know there is no one fix for everyone, but I wanted to share my findings.
