With the NFL season now underway, it's the perfect time to brush up on some of the best UltraHD/4K TVs available to consumers and integrators alike. 

The 2018 consumer product market offers homeowners a wealth of 4K TV choices at an array of price points.

Today’s market almost universally provides compatibility with advanced technologies such as high dynamic range (HDR) and to a lesser extent wide color gamuts that deliver images capable of rivaling a post-production facility.

The diversity of products that are available to consumers is arguably the most interesting aspect that's helping to drive UltraHD/4K's popularity. 

4K TVs and Projectors Are Better & More Affordable Than Ever 

With the 4K format continuing to gain acceptance, video manufacturers are responding to the public’s appetite for UltraHD/4K by adopting technologies from the commercial video market.

Utilizing commercial products and technologies like microLED video wall products, homeowners now have the ability to watch state-of-the-art video systems that are as big, bright, and vivid as their budgets allow.

The use of solid-state laser light engines in projectors is also giving a quality boost to home theater setups.

Homeowners willing to make the upfront investment into a laser-based projector will benefit from the technology’s ability to run as long as 20,000 hours, at brightness levels that allow for installation in rooms containing ambient light.

In many cases, laser-based projectors are able to reproduce wide color gamuts compatible with standards such as the digital cinema DCI-P3 format, a definite boon for sports fans. 

Not to be overlooked, traditional 4K TVs are also better than ever.

Manufacturers have improved the performance of their respective panel technologies to help modern era TVs produce deeper blacks, higher contrast ratios, and brighter screens.
