Plasma TV Technology - A Means Of Bringing Life To Images

Aug 23, 2008
Thanks to the latest plasma TV technology, the prices of flat screen television have dropped in a dramatic fashion to say the least. Also thanks to guidelines issued by the government, broadcast programming will soon be in digital format and with the current mixture of TV technologies providing plasma TV technology, the are now ready for the final conversion from analog to digital.

Ever since the year 1964, the utilization of plasma monitors has enabled the initial dots of monochrome to be viewed on a monitor. In 1999, the first full colored plasma monitor was debuted and thanks to plasma TV technology the images being presented on the screens have just become sharper and more lifelike as the years progress onwards.

In today's plasma TV technology you get the ability to view widescreen video on 4:3 ratio monitors, through the process of clipping the images. In this way, the viewer doesn't see the total frame.

In television sets that were older, the picture ratio was 4:3; in contrast to what is shown in movie theaters of 13:9 and the whole image is able to be viewed on the screen. With the latest plasma TV technology, the images are broadcast or sent out in 13:9 ratio and the entire image is able to be presented and viewed on screen.

Nevertheless, a signal that is received in the 4:3 aspect ratio, is still capable of being viewed through the technology that is being used by today's newer television sets. There are some of the older TV's that would stretch the image at the top which would end up creating a distortion as it attempts to fill the whole screen while today's newer monitors will utilize a correcting algorithm to calculate the biggest size of the image and then do a scaling of the overall image to then fit it to the available screen.

Constant Improvement Gives Brighter Viewing Entertainment

Through the use of plasma TV technology the images on screen are much sharper, clearer as well as more colorful than ever before. Nevertheless, regardless of the amount of quality of the plasma TV as well as the price that you paid for it, if the signal that is input is in the format of analog or only capable of being shown in enhanced video, there will be no discernable difference in the quality of the picture.

Even in the case of today's satellite TV services, which is broadcasting all of the signals through high definition, if the program that is originating it is sent to the satellite services is not in the format of high definition, the signal that is eventually received in the home will have an odd resemblance to the older images that were in analog.

In spite of all of the high technology advances in plasma TV technology, in addition to the falling prices, numerous individuals are hesitant to welcome the high-end types of units because of the availability or lack thereof of high definition signals in some locations of the country.

One of the minor drawbacks with plasma TV technology is the sizes of the monitors that are available. The majority of manufacturers only make them to about the 42 inch screen range, which leaves the smaller size units to the LCD industry in the flat panel market.
