What are some good 55-inch TV models that don't have built-in soap opera effect or motion interpolation?

The "soap opera effect" is a colloquial term for motion interpolation, a feature that creates intermediate frames to smooth out motion on TV screens, making films appear more like soap operas.

Motion interpolation uses algorithms to create new frames between existing ones, which can cause the "soap opera effect" if not implemented correctly.

The human eye can process up to 60 frames per second, making 60Hz the minimum refresh rate required for smooth motion.

TVs with a native refresh rate of 120Hz or higher can reduce motion blur and judder, making them suitable for fast-paced content like sports and action movies.

Local dimming technology, found in high-end TVs, adjusts brightness dynamically across the screen, minimizing motion blur and reducing the "soap opera effect".

OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) TVs tend to have better motion handling due to their fast pixel response time and low input lag.

The "24p" frame rate, commonly used in film, refers to 24 frames per second, which is ideal for cinematic experiences.

When a TV is set to a 60Hz refresh rate, it can display 60 frames per second, but it can't display the original 24 frames per second of a film without interpolation.

The "soap opera effect" can be reduced by setting the TV to a lower refresh rate or adjusting the motion interpolation settings.

Some TVs have features like "Movie Mode" or "Cinema Mode" that can help reduce the "soap opera effect" by disabling motion interpolation.

The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) recommends a maximum of 2-3 frames of motion interpolation for cinematic experiences.

The human brain can process up to 10-15 frames per second, making 24p a sufficient frame rate for cinematic experiences.

4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) is approximately four times the resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels).

HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology allows for a wider color gamut and higher contrast ratio, enhancing the viewing experience.

QLED (Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode) TVs use tiny crystals to create colors, resulting in improved color accuracy and brightness.

The response time of a TV's pixels affects its ability to display motion smoothly, with faster response times reducing motion blur.

The input lag of a TV, measured in milliseconds, affects the delay between the input signal and the display, with lower input lag being beneficial for gaming and fast-paced content.
