After many years of standard television viewing, the wonderful world of advanced research and development in entertainment technology has now produced a flat-panel display with a wide screen, having a width of about 6 inches, with an excellent imaging capability. This particular wonder of the future is called a Plasma television and is in greater demand than standard television sets. Although it is a bit more expensive than standard sets, starting at $1,200, it is hoped that the evolving technology and demand will make it more and more affordable for the average consumer to have and install a Plasma television set.
The sharp image is produced and viewed on a wider screen using extremely thin materials. Because the pixels are individually lit, the image always looks bright and sharp from every angle. The central element of fluorescent light is a plasma material made up of free-flowing ions and electrons, i.e., electrically charged atoms and negatively charged particles. Under normal conditions, the negative electrons are in perfect balance with the positive protons so each atom has a net charge of zero. An electrical current disturbs this balance by causing a positive charge changing the atom to an ion. This current causes the negative to collide with the positive, increasing levels of energy. When this energy level returns to normal, the extra energy is released in the form of light photons. When an electrical current is introduced to Xenon and Neon atoms, used in producing Plasma screens, it causes them to release light photons. The ultraviolet light photons, invisible to the human eye, then stimulate light photons that are visible to the eye, thus producing a sharp image. The basic concept of a standard television or monitor is that the screen lights up thousands of tiny dots, called pixels, with a high-energy beam of electrons. There are three basic colors of pixels ‚Äì red, green, and blue. They are evenly distributed on the screen; and by combining them in different intensities, images can be produced in different colors. Plasma televisions use cathode ray tube technology, as do standard television sets, to achieve this imaging and colors. This combination tends to produce a very crisp and vibrant image, but, because of this combination, the sets have been, in the past, quite bulky making them undesirable to a majority of consumers. Now, with the continuing research and development of highly advanced technology, consumers all over the world are enjoying the best of quality home entertainment on flat-screened Plasma television sets.
Panasonic, Samsung, Pioneer, and Phillips all manufacture wide-screen, high-definition, flat-screened Plasma television sets. Pricing starts at around $1200 to $4,500 for enjoyment in excellence of the latest in Plasma television services. To comparison shop, click on Plasma Television for a wide array of distributors and pricing information. Then select, purchase, and enjoy your favorite programming on the latest in television technology.
