The difference between home TV and professional monitor

Nowadays, home TVs and professional displays are more and more similar in appearance design, but in fact, they are completely different products, each has its own special functions and uses. Today, let's show you the difference between home LCD monitor and professional monitor.


 

Luminance difference


The typical luminance value of household TV is 350cd/m2. Professional displays are usually 350-700cd/m2 to eliminate environmental light. Household TV is usually purchased by consumers for household use. Professional displays are usually purchased by enterprises or institutions, which are more robust and are used in high person traffic areas. So the brightness demand is different.

Display interface


In order to pursue simplicity, home TV usually simplifies the input interface, usually providing HDMI or USB interface. Professional displays usually carry RS232C inputs for control, and are equipped with multiple input ports to meet commercial needs, such as VGA, DVI, and DisplayPort.

Cooling system


Home TV usually carries a limited airborne cooling system for 6-8 hours and only supports horizontal installation. Professional displays are equipped with powerful cooling systems that can be used from 16/7 to 24/7 and support horizontal or vertical installation.

Residual shadow


If an image is left on the screen for a long time, the phenomenon of "burning screen" will appear on the home TV. Even if the image is switched, the remnant of the image will appear. Professional displays use special processing technology to protect the screen from being burned.
