TV Sizes (Large vs. Small vs. Too Small)

#1

Post by john84601 »

We are trying to work with our FM group to get the appropriate amount and size of TVs in all the buildings in our stake to support the new digital curriculum.

Our FM Manager defined TV sizes as:
-- Large: 32"
-- Small: 19"

Additionally, CHQ indicates in their letter regarding the new curriculum that a iPad or Laptop is only big enough for classes of 1-4 people (without the small size / volume becoming a distraction to the class).

So this is my question. Our FM group is trying to pass of some 13" TV/VCR combos for "Small" TVs. In my opinion... they are the same as a laptop. That is to say... to small to use without being a distraction due to the small size in a class with > 4 people (I think the CHQ statement agrees with me).

Has anyone else experienced this?

In November of 2011 we moved into a new Stake Center, it came with a single LCD TV/DVD combo for each unit (3 in total) they were 19in This year the new LCD TV/DVD combo's we're getting from the FMG are 24in

I believe the January Tech Broadcast indicated new models were going to be 24in

There is a HUGE difference between 19 and 24, HUGE

Not a good option since everything is now DVD and not VCR.

What's more - I'm sure those TV/VCR units are "standard" aspect ratio. If the video is "letter box" the effective size is even smaller. Maybe 10" tablet sized.
