This list of often confusing or misunderstood terms should set a base of knowledge for you to be able to talk video with the geekiest of geeks at your local retailer. If you were to set down a list of definitions of these terms in front of many AV salespeople, it’s likely you might know more terms than they do.
Remember video is like computers in that there will always be the next latest-and-greatest format. The time to pull the trigger is when you find a picture that you can live with for a good number of years at a price you can afford. Changing out your TV or projector every six months is too costly for even the most rabid videophile. Make sure you get the brightest, highest contrast and overall most lifelike-looking video display you can afford and you simply cannot go wrong.
