"○ ○ V type" which shows the size of the television screen and "○○ inches", if the numbers are the same, which one is larger?

Currently, flat screen TVs are mainstream, and the unit representing the size of the screen has also been changed from "inches" to "V type", but thinking that the notation ◯◯ inch and the notation ◯◯ V type have the same meaning There seems to be quite a lot of people there, for example, there are cases where it is incorrectly stated that "32 inch" should be described as "32 V type".

So, "○ ○ V type" and "◯◯ inch", how these two expressions are different, which one actually becomes bigger if the numbers are the same, and finally Let's see how it affects the size of the screen.

Details are from the following.
First of all, from the conclusion, the definitions are slightly different between "V type" and "inches", for example in the case of "32 V type" and "32 inches", the screen size actually seen for "32 V type" It gets bigger.

In the first place, "V" of "○ ○ V type" generally used in flat-screen televisions such as liquid crystal and plasma televisions is an abbreviation of "Visual Size", "V type" is actually displayed on the screen I will tell you the size of the part. On the other hand, the indication "inch" or "type" that was used in CRT televisions and the like is the size added to the portion that is hidden behind the "border" which is the further outside of the actually visible screen .

As a result of the above differences, for example, comparing the actual size of the screen of a 32-inch TV and a 32-inch television, the 32-inch television includes even the portion hidden by the edges, so 32-inch The size of the screen actually displayed from the TV becomes smaller ....

The easy-to-image diagrams are listed on the following sites.
TV screen size "36 V type" and "36 type" are different in size?

I will explain from the following using an actual screen instead of an illustration. Since there is no cathode-ray tube TV in the editing department, I use a personal computer monitor as an example. Please note.

This is the size of the screen on which ○ ○ V type is written. The part surrounded by the red frame becomes the part representing ○ ○ V type, the number entering ○ ○ will be decided by the length of the position of the arrow.

This one explains the size of ○○ inches · type. The part surrounded by the blue frame becomes the part expressing ◯◯ inch, and the number entering ○ ○ is decided according to the length of the arrow.

If the monitor represented by the red frame is 20 V type and the monitor represented by the blue frame is 20 inches, the part surrounded by the red frame will be the same size as the part surrounded by the blue frame, so actually It means that the 20V type monitor is larger.

The flat-screen TV currently on sale is almost ___ V type so you do not have to be nervous, but you think that you bought a flat-screen TV of the same size from a CRT TV, actually you notice that the screen is getting a bit bigger I feel a little happy.
