Though outer appearance of plasma TV and LCD TV is similar but the difference between plasma and LCD TV is in their technologies which make them altogether different from each other. To review the difference between both the TVs you should about their working individually. Difference between plasma and LCD TV : a comparative study of technologies Plasma TV: The technology used in Plasma TV is based on the fluorescent light bulbs and its display is based on cells. During the manufacturing process of Plasma TV neon-xenon gas is injected and sealed in the narrow gap between the two glass panels of each cell. The plasma TV creates images when the gas in these cells get electrically charged and strikes with blue, red and green phosphors in these cells known as pixel. Due to the formation of images by burning of phosphors Plasma TV had eliminated the need of electron beam scanning and bulky picture tube of traditional TV but the problem of screen-burn of static images and heat generation of traditional TV still exists. LCD TV: The LCD panels of the TV are made of two polarized and glued together layers of transparent materials one of which is enabled it hold the liquid crystals by coating it with special polymer. Images are formed in this TV by blocking or passing the light through these crystals when current is passed through them individually. But the images are made visible through an external source like florescent bulb as LCD crystals do not emit any light. So because there is nothing to light up like in Plasma TV, LCD TV needs lesser power to operate and emits lesser heat and no radiation as compared to Plasma TV. Comparative difference between Plasma and LCD TV Advantages and disadvantages of Plasma TV as compared to LCD TV Plasma TV has better contrast ratio, better color accuracy, and ability to provide deep black images, wider side-to-side viewing angle and better motion tracking in fast motion pictures than LCD TV. Apart from all these positive points there are certain negative points about Plasma TV as compared to LCD TV. Plasma TV has to be used in darkened room due to...
