LCD, LED, 3D, Plasma, DLP, what are the differences?
LCD TV, Plasma TV, and DLP TV what’s the difference? Because many folks are confused about these new technologies, we’ve provided some brief definitions of each technology so you’ll have a clearer understanding as you make your TV buying decision. All these technologies create magnificent pictures.
- LED TV - LED TVs use LED backlighting instead of fluorescent lighting, and thus they can produce images and picture quality with a greater dynamic contrast. LED Televisions are also very slim and take up minimum space.
- LCD TV - LCD TV uses Liquid Crystal Display technology (generally TFT), as opposed to cathode ray or plasma for its visual output. The result is breathtaking images. Larger screen LCD televisions are hugely popular as more and more are produced.
- 3D TV - 3D TVs employ the latest technology today, allowing you to view three-dimensional TV shows, movies and video games. 3D Televisions have very high refresh rates so that two images can be displayed at the same time, one to each eye, allowing you to perceive depth. Most 3D TVs require the use of special 3D glasses.
- DLP TV - DLP (Digital Lighting Processing) technology uses an optical semiconductor to manipulate light digitally. Picture quality is masterful. You’ll find DLP technology in many televisions, home theater systems and business and entertainment projectors.
- Plasma TV - Plasma TV employs a matrix of tiny gas plasma bubbles coated by phosphor and charged by precise electrical voltages to create a picture.
