Size of the screen: an important criterion

For the purchase of your next television, size is an important parameter to consider. More specifically, you should pay attention to the diagonal measurement of the screen, in inches or centimeters.

For your information, the smallest Schneider model is 22 inches or 56 centimeters. Simultaneously, the largest Schneider model is 75 inches or 175 centimeters. And of course, there are intermediary sizes, such as the Schneider 32”/80cm HD Smart television.

Which television size to choose: the first rule to remember

For your viewing comfort, it is recommended to put some distance between you and the screen. Namely, this distance must be at least 2.6 times the size of the diagonal measurement of your television for a Full HD. For instance, you should watch a 32 inches (or 80 centimeters) Full HD screen at 2.08 meters minimum. So, the surface of your room will determine your choice in terms of dimensions.

Note that if your television is too big with respect to the recommended distance, the images will appear pixelated. Conversely, if it is too small, you will not see all the details in the image.

The distance depends on the resolution

Besides the previous rule, note that the necessary distance varies depending on the television’s resolution.

With cathodic television screens, the necessary distance was at least 5 times the diagonal measurement of the screen. For a Full HD television, you should rather allow for 2.6 times the diagonal measurement of the screen. And for an Ultra HD television, 3 times the height of the screen is enough.

Dimensions and uses

Finally, you may be wondering if the use you will make of your future television has an influence on the necessary distance and hence on the dimensions to choose. The answer is no! Whether to watch films, series, or television shows or for video games, the previous rules also apply.

Beyond size, there are other criteria to consider to purchase a television. About that, feel free to read our “How to choose a TV” Schneider guide.
