What is a Plasma Display?
Plasma Displays are flat panel TV's that use plasma to create a coloured light. Millions of small compartments - "bulbs" or "cells" - are spaced between two pieces of glass, each with a mixture of gases. Behind each "cell" is a series of coloured phosphors, that when electricity connects to the "cells", stunning vivid colours and ultra-clear pictures are produced. Depending on the phosphors used, different colours of light can be achieved.
Plasma displays have incredibly precise colours, including the ability to create deep, rich blacks, and their wide angle view compared to LCDs ensures images do not suffer from degradation at high angles.
- Plasma displays produce a much sharper image than old fashioned CRT screens as they have many more pixels per inch.
- Space saving - the average Plasma display is only around 6 - 8 inches deep and can be installed onto walls.
- Very lightweight in comparison to rear projection screens. Providing a suitable bracket is purchased, they can be hung very easily from suitable walls.
- 16 million colours creates a stunning contrast ratio.
- Wide viewing angle - noticably superior to rear projection and LCD screens.
- Do not suffer distortion when placed in proximity of a magnetic field.
