A study has found that televisions placed on a high brightness mode could be costing you around £100 a year. The study carried out by HDTVTest magazine found that television sets were set on extreme brightness modes during factory settings as they felt it was the best way to compete within the brightly lit shops they are displayed in.
Once they are brought home this setting not only can be costly, it can also reduce the quality of high definition televisions. Those that took part in the study found their bill reduced by an average of £8 and enjoyed a better picture to view.
Vincent Teoh, Editor of HDTVTest explained, Calibrating your TV is similar to washing at 30 degrees or only putting the right amount of water in the kettle its more environmentally friendly and more cost effective. The benefit with calibrating a TV is that the picture quality is actually improvedits a shame manufacturers turn their TV settings to the max, not only is it unnecessary, but it distorts the true performance of the television.
