The screen of a plasma television is constructed of over sixteen million pixels. Red, blue and green pixel colors are phospors which together make up those pixels you see displayed. Those three colors, in a variety of combinations is what makes up the picture.
Between two glass panels is where the plasma material is found and from where it operates. The millions of pixels make up a tiny images, by way of illuminated flourescent lights made up of the three colors. And the plasma is made of a gas made up from electircally charged atoms and negatively charged particles. Then electricity is passed through it, which starts the lighting process, or what we see on-screen.
Televisions with plasma screen are expensive, there is no doubt about that. But what is the advantage of this type of flat screen TV?
Older style televisons get edge distortion, but with a flat plasma screen this is no longer a problem.
The best thing about flat screens is the widescreen (16:) format, which means you don’t lose some of the picture when watching your favorite movie! And you know how annoying and frustrating that can be, when you get half the picture cut off or you can’t see the subtitles at the bottom of the screen!
With a plasma, brightness of the display is uniform from one corner to the other. With conventional TV’s you get bright and dark mixed colors, but you don’t have this problem with a plasma display. All sixteen pixels are illuminated evenly.
In case you havent noticed, youre going to save a huge amount of space with a plasma TV. Because of the slim design, plasma televisions give more options when it comes to mounting them. On a stand, flat against a wall where a normal TV would not fit perhaps?
Another thing whch is great about plasmas is that magnetic fields do not interrupt the screen. Plasma displays work completely different from conventional televisions, which uses electron beams, which as you know can be affected greatly by magnetism.The advantages of a plasma can easily be seen here. So you want to put a music system near your television? With a plasma, you can have the speakers as close as you like without it affecting the picture.
