THX confirms the obvious
It’s Labor Day weekend, so time for some levity. I received a press release from THX recently and there was something very important they wanted you to know:
The research also confirmed that larger screens consume more power.
Finally someone did the research to confirm larger screen flat panel displays consume more power! All this time I assumed they used the same or less as smaller TVs!
The press release mentioned the power savings achieved with properly calibrated televisions. The results were compared to the Vivid and Dynamic modes typically the default on most flat panel displays. Power savings ranged from 15-50 percent.
