TECHNOLOGY Plasma technology is relatively new (1964), having been originally developed as a full colour screen at thetime of the Winter Olympics in Nagano (1998) as a means of showing sporting events on larger screensthan is possible with CRT technology. It was thus developed from the ground up for showing video asopposed to static pictures.LCD technology is actually an older technology dating back to 1904 and was primarily developed to displaystatic images on digital calculators and watches, before being adopted by the IT industry for computermonitors and eventual development into TV sets.COLOUR REPRODUCTIONWith Plasma technology, every individual pixel (3x cells or sub-pixels) contains all the elements necessaryto make colours, which helps Plasma produce a wider colour palette with more natural tones.With LCD technology, colours are made by manipulating the light coming from a constant, fixed backlightthen passed through colour filters. This reliance on a fixed backlight source and colour filters may make itdifficult for some LCDs to produce consistently natural and believable colour saturations and tones.Because Plasma TVs can produce more viewable colours than LCD, Plasmas are able to bring the colour ofyour world to TV. If you want to see more vibrant colour on your TV we recommend that you choose a bigscreen Plasma TV.INTENSE BLACKSWith Plasma screens, a pixel can be made to look almost completely black by stopping any electricalcurrent from entering it. Panasonic are now so good at this that our Plasma’s routinely boast a dynamiccontrast ratio of 30,000:1 (native contrast), helping to create a truly cinematic, deep image.With LCD, some unwanted light from the backlight may seep through pixels that are supposed to be black,meaning that dark areas may look grey and flat If you are a movie buff and love the cinema experience, werecommend that you choose a big Plasma TV to deliver a more cinema-like experience in your home withdeeper and truer blacks which enhance depth and richness of colour.RESPONSE TIMEPlasma technology works on the rapid electrical discharges in the individual cells to produce an image,which can react almost instantly to changes in picture content. This makes a Plasma screen’s responsetime practically zero. Moving objects are rendered vibrantly and crisply.With LCD TVs, response time describes the time it takes for a liquid crystal cell to go from active (white) toinactive (black) and then back to active (white) again (the LCD molecules have to physically move).Because this whole process can take considerably longer than a Plasma cell to refresh itself,LCD TVs may blur moving objects as the LCD cells fail to go through their active/inactive/active cycle fastenough to keep up with the rapid changes in the source image. Some large LCD TVs now utilise frameinterpolation technology in an effort to reduce the effects of monitor blur. The larger the screen, the morenoticeable this motion blur may become – and this is why we recommend Plasma for larger screens.
 
If you’re looking for a big screen TV to view sport and action movies, Plasma should be your choice.VIEWING ANGLEBecause Plasma screens emit light directly from each cell,their pictures retain high contrast and picture quality evenwhen watched from extreme angles. THE PRACTICAL WORLDTHE PRACTICAL WORLDTHE PRACTICAL WORLDTHE PRACTICAL WORLDThe wonderful world of TV is somewhat confusing for most people. The concept of several newtechnologies evolving at roughly the same time to replace a single TV technology has dumbfounded many.We have been watching CRT based televisions for more than 50 years and now consumers are beingbombarded by many new technologies including Plasma and LCD.The obvious question for most people is: “Which one is the best?” The key point to recognize about TVtechnologies is they all excel under certain conditions. It is simply a matter of matching the right TV to theright application. For example, one obvious advantage with Plasma and LCD TVs is their ultra-thin design,(average depth of a LCD/ PLASMA television is about 10 cm), which makes them very versatile.LCDLCDLCDLCD PlasmaPlasmaPlasmaPlasma

(Lots of sun, incandescent or fluorescent)Plasma TVs perform best under incandescent or halogen lighting while LCD TVs are very similar toplasma under fluorescent lighting. Lots of sunlight will wash out any TV display, but a good set of lineddrapes will solve that problem.Where will the TV be located? (Mounted onWhere will the TV be located?

It is a good idea to consult an install technician to ensure proper supportfor the TV and to neatly hide the wires. Most Flat panel TVs come with a matching pedestal stand forplacement on a credenza or in a wall unit. Matching floor stands are also available for select plasmamodels.LCD TV ApplicationLCD TV ApplicationLCD TV ApplicationLCD TV Application Plasma TV ApplicationPlasma TV ApplicationPlasma TV ApplicationPlasma TV Application
