Get Into Why LCD Tvs are Increasing in Popularity

By: Ricky Richter

LCD technology can be seen almost anywhere.? From the digital clock that startles you in the morning to the microwave that served up your last plate of food, you have been using LCD technology for? quite a while, probably without even knowing it.? The digital watch on your wrist, the laptop at your office, even the MP3 player in your gym bag makes use of LCD innovations.


These are only? a couple of examples of everyday electronics that incorporate LCD technology.? The most well-known use of LCD technology in the present time is the ever popular LCD television.


Liquid Crystal Displays or ?are those that use flat, thin displays made up of a series of monochrome pixels that are in turn displayed in front of a reflector or other source of light.? That is where the image display comes from.? Most of the time, the technology used is that of the Thin Film Transistor or TFT that is a specific type of field effect transistor made by layering thin films planned for metal contacts along with dielectric and semiconductor layers.? As such, the LCD television is much different than other image producing technologies such as a plasma display or older cathode ray tubes.


Before these where popular, the general consensus was that LCD technology was only suitable when used on televisions of smaller size and that it could not be as good as plasma technology when it came to the big screen sizes.? With the advent of seventh generation panels by such giants as Samsung, Sony, Westinghouse Digital, Sharp and LG Philips, those beliefs have proven to be out-dated information.


In October of 2004, LCD pictures where as large as 45 inches and were readily distributed by several companies and the Sharp Corporation took center lead with the introduction of the first 65 inch panel television in history.? By 2006, LG Philips had introduced the grandest picture yet with their 100 inch LCD television.?


Today's LCD television sets are universal, in that they include a multi system tuner that displays NTSC, SECAM and PAL standards. They also offer electronic transformers that automatically use 110/250 voltage without a problem, as well as universal grounded adapter plugs.? Also, are not going to be limited to the family room and now serve as computer monitors all over the world.


According to respected professionals, manufacturers continue with plans to invest tons of money on the production and development of LCD television technology over the next several years.? It is highly un-likely that LCD technology is going anywhere, in fact, if recent trends hold true for LCD TVs, then the greatest is yet to come!
