The group of the TV and sofa is traditional center of gravity in the living room. It is necessary to have from each other these two subjects intelligently that rest was not saddened by headache and gripes in eyes.
Far or close
It is considered to be that the further from sofa there is TV, the safer it for eyes. Actually everything is slightly more difficult. The too distant and small picture will be more difficult to be considered, many parts will not be visible. Because of it the positive spirit and essence of the events on the screen will be lost. The situation of the room which is snatched out by side sight which can prevent to concentrate on the events on the screen will distract from the too distant image.
If the TV stands too close, then it will be possible to distinguish pixels because of what the image will lose integrity and will become less attractive. Try to experiment, turn on the TV and gradually you depart from it. Notice at what distance on the picture will stop being the points making it are visible, it also is the minimum interval between sofa and the TV.
How to calculate ideal distance between the TV and sofa
First of all the distance between chair or sofa and the TV is influenced by the diagonal of the TV, sharpness of your sight and the size of pixels. It is desirable that this distance was not less than three diagonals of the screen. Sometimes it is necessary to take into account and quality of the image. If the TV is intended only for watching movies of the HD and Full HD format, it should be put a little closer, otherwise it is possible not to notice small parts and difference in quality. If the TV is necessary for viewing in ordinary quality, put it slightly further from sofa that pixelization was not evident and did not spoil impression of viewing. It is better to have opportunity to move either sofa, or the TV. If the arrangement of these two corner objects is invariable, it is worth picking up TV diagonal specifically under the available distance: 2-2.9 meters – 32-46 inches, 3-3.5 meters – 47-55 inches, 3.6 meters and further – 56-60 inches. Do not forget about way of installation and height of arrangement of the TV, ideally, it has to stand so that eyes of the audience looked in the middle of the screen. If the TV costs or freezes up above, it is necessary to sit down far away, otherwise it is necessary to throw back the head better to consider the image. Trying to choose distance, ideal for watching movies, do not forget also about other factors affecting arrangement of the TV. It has to stand in the place inaccessible to sunshine, far away from heating appliances, otherwise the plastic body can be damaged and melted off, and electronics – to overheat. To provide good ventilation, leave at least 10 cm of free space around the household appliance.
