What is the Plasma TV Technology?
About Plasma TV:
Plasma TVs have become more and more available, and their costs are decreasing. We’ve all heard of plasma TVs, and ad campaigns constantly tell us that they are status symbols. Advertisements are extremely effective in extolling the benefits of a plasma TV, so much so that it seems that our traction and popularity will also improve. One thing these commercials don’t really tell us is what a plasma TV actually is. Here’s a short guide on plasma televisions to help you appreciate this seeming marvel of modern technology.
Plasma TVs have a higher resolution than other traditional display devices, which means they can display the high-definition signals of HDTVs and DTVs. In addition, plasma TV computer signals are compatible with SVGA, VGA, and XGA.
Unlike other display devices, plasma TVs have a transistor electrode for each pixel cell, which means that there are no scan lines that are visible with normal TVs. The entire image is evenly illuminated by these electrodes on the display and is not produced by an electron beam which is the cause of the scan lines.
Capabilities of Plasma TV:
Top-range display plasma TVs have display capabilities of over 16 million colors. This ensures that the image has a much more realistic color contrast than what is shown on a traditional TV screen. This is because they are able to display many more colors than a low-quality TV screen.
Plasma TV screens are completely flat which has two advantages. Unlike more curved traditional TV screens, there is no edge distortion, and it also has a wider viewing angle. The viewing angle of a plasma TV is 160 degrees and this allows the image to be seen correctly from more areas of the room where the TV is located. This makes plasma TV screens ideal for large group viewing and reduces the need to install more than one TV set.
Of course, the main advantage most people know about plasma TVs is their space-saving quality. They are extremely flat, and therefore can be installed in many more places than a traditional TV set. The 50-inch screen has a depth of about 4 inches, and can therefore be wall-hung.
