Clarifying The Technology Behind LCD Plasma TVs

Mar 3, 2008
Technology is an amazing thing. It constantly progresses. If you buy a new television set now, then in a few months or a year, the technology will be considered outdated.

It is hard to keep up with all of the options and developments with television technology, but if you have a base knowledge about LCD plasma TVs, then you will be ahead of the pack. Once you know the basics you will have a great start when it comes time to make your next TV purchase.

You may not care about the difference in technology between a cathode-ray television and the LCD plasma TVs. Most people really just care about the picture quality and the sound quality. It is not any wonder. A person can become mesmerized by the clear, crisp colors.

The smooth motions of the people on screen. The sound coming out of the speakers and you cannot forget about the slim design. But maybe knowing a little about the inner workings of these wonderful machines may be a good idea.

Each of the pixels in a new plasma flat screen television is controlled by individual specialized electronics. This technology allows for billions of colors. You get clear resolution, excellent picture color and no distortion, all while having a tv that is six inches thick.

Compare that to the huge, bulky models of the past. The kind of box that required three people to move it versus the plasma screen television that one person can carry.

The rage in technology during the 1980's and early 1990's was the big screen television. It stood about five feet tall and had a resolution that was atrocious. The picture, rather than looking sharp and crisp, was distorted and the colors were faded.

You do not have to sacrifice screen size in exchange for crystal clear picture and dynamic colors. You can get a 60 inch Plasma tv! It is big enough to feed your tv or gaming habit and still give you enough room in your living room for some furniture.

LCD plasma TVs are still relatively expensive when you consider the non-plasma or LCD models. But as more come out in production, the price will begin to fall. For a typical 30 inch plasma television, you can expect to pay around $800, depending on where you purchase.

Larger screens will naturally be more expensive and can easily top the $1500 mark. Much of the price depends on the size, model and where you buy your electronics. Larger retail stores will often be your best location.
