My current TV is a 1080p 21:9 Phillips that I have owned for the best part of a decade. In the play room is a 720p panny plasma that has done stirling service, but the PSU is probably on the way out.
My initial thought was to relocate the phillips to the playroom and buy a new TV for the living room. I researched:
- 8k vs 4k;
- HDR, HDR10+, Dolby Vision;
- OLED vs QLED;
- HDMI standards …etc.
However, the issue the we have is that we enjoy older fare, such as the BBC series made in the 70s, rather than the newer adaptations. These are all SD in nature, and will not look good on a new TV.
What I would truly like is a higher res TV that can EMULATE 1080p, that is aggregate the smaller pixels into larger groups that act as a single pixel. This would, I would hope, make the best of SD sourced material AND allow us to get the most from modern sources.
Does such technology exist? I can’t find it.
