The Apple TV It is a multimedia device that connects to a television via an HDMI cable and that has an operating system, tvOS designed by Apple itself and that you can access the exclusive Apple TV+ catalogue. Within your software, it has a great capacity for customization and adjustments, which we will analyze below.
Inside the tab settings, let’s go to video and audio. Regarding the video options, we can determine the maximum resolution of our television. However, it is true that you can put the resolution that we want, but it does not make sense to put a 4K resolution when your television does not support that value.
Regarding the options HDR and SDR, Nothing happens if you choose one option or the other, since it is an aspect that depends to a large extent on your television and if it is not capable of reproducing content with these characteristics, it will not work in either of the two options. On the other hand, if it is more important resolution appropriate and above all choose well between the 50hz or 60hz. If you are in Europe, the best option is 50 HZ, on the contrary, if you have a residence or a business trip and you are in a point outside this geographical area, it is normal that we have 60 Hz or another value.
The hdmi output, It is another aspect to take into account when configuring our Apple TV, where two options appear: RGB and YCbCr. The most recommended is the second option, which is the format that will least compress the color and the transfer rate from Apple TV to television. However, it is important that we have a good HDMI cable, because in that case, we will not have a good transfer of information. The options RGB both high and low It’s going to compress the image somewhat and it’s going to look for the equivalence.
The first option that appears to us is the option to high and low dynamic range activation where different options appear. The most recommended thing is that we activate the high and low dynamic range option next to the frame rate. From the Apple TV settings option, we can make changes to Audio, since we can determine that it comes from the speakers of the television, Apple TV or AirPods. However, it is best to keep it automatic, so that Apple determines which output is the most recommended at all times.
Along with this is the option to reduce loud sounds To avoid disturbing when we are watching an action movie and we do not want to disturb the neighbors or the people who are in the next room, we activate this option and there is a reduction of the loudest or specific sounds to avoid acoustic problems.
The device color balance we can adjust it both with Apple TV and with the iPhone. To make a perfect calibration, we can use the iPhone if it has Face ID technology, which is placed next to the television, and in one or two minutes, it will reconfigure the quality of the television and establish a real quality and avoid colors saturated or with other values. We find the same situation with the external audio, Since if you have external audio that we want to include the Apple TV, we have the option to synchronize the audio automatically, where the iPhone will be an intermediate element to correct this gap between audio and video.
