Thinking of embracing the newest “concept entry” in the world of home theater electronics? Sales of curved TV’s are exploding among mainstream consumers, not just tech aficionados eager to buy the latest and greatest. While some still call curved TV’s a gimmick, it does look like they’re here to stay.
The top reasons many viewers have fallen for the curve:
- The rounded nature of the TV contours draws you in for an immersive viewing experience.
- Depth is deeper, so perception is enhanced, similar to watching a 3D movie.
- Width is wider, so the image seems to stretch even further, and is accurate from side views.
- Better contrast and sharpness, especially at the edges, makes for a richer picture.
- From an interior design perspective, curved TV’s look cool!
Some viewers think the experience rivals that of going to the movies, in fact, many commercial cinemas use curved screens. One consumer electronics reporter sums up his experiment, a month after adding a curved 65-inch TV to his home theater:
“For my efforts, I’ve gained almost 6 pounds, thanks to roughly 32 bags of microwave popcorn washed down with several gallons of Mr. Pibb – and developed a suspicious numbness in my left leg. It was totally worth it…” We’ve got tips for you on staying fit and burning calories while enjoying your TV at home.
The one drawback that we hear often from people considering a curved TV purchase? They’re afraid the shape will make a wall-mount difficult or awkward. Who wants to be limited to a desktop or floor stand display? That defeats the whole home theater look and feel that has made flat screens so popular. No fear. OmniMount’s open architecture product design ensures our wall mounts are compatible with most of the new curved TV’s. They’re also future-proof, so as technology advances, you can keep up — without having to replace your mount.

You just got a curved TV — now what? Don’t be fooled into thinking that you’re limited to a mount for only that TV type. OmniMount’s full motion and interactive wall mounts will still work on a majority of the curved TV’s now hitting the market. You have a range of choices for setting up and enjoying the immersive, wraparound effect of your curved TV.
A wall mount is the safest mount. After purchasing this popular new technology, the last thing you need is to have your curved TV come crashing down because someone knocked it over. Property damage is bad enough, but worse yet is the risk that someone may get hurt.
You need a strong and reliable mount, one that will not fail you when you need it most. Rest easy, durable OmniMount products undergo performance tests that exceed the industry’s most rigid standards.
Curved TV’s are the newest wave of technology, but are they here to stay? That depends on who you ask. Some experts say so, and others say no. Either way, open-architecture design means our mounts will continue to be useful so you won’t have to replace them anytime soon.
OmniMount mounts can be found online and at certain local retailers such as Lowes and Sam’s Club.
