Apart from getting a lot slimmer the latest TVs are also getting wider. The square box has been replaced with a widescreen display which has an aspect ratio of 16:9.
For the many viewers who are looking to replace their old tube TV or perhaps buy a second flatscreen for another room, one of the many questions being asked is just how big or small should the panel be to suit the room and assure comfortable viewing.
The first thing you need to do is establish how far it is between the screen and the couch – this is called the viewing distance.
