Display technology has travelled a long technological distance from the days of cathode array tube based display devices to the most modern LCD/LED/SED and plasma displays. It was only recently that the CRT TV sales worldwide were beaten by the LCD TVs signalling that the times of the CRT display are numbered and that the modern displays are being increasing adopted by the people. For the technical person, the difference between the two technologies is immense but for the consumers it is the easy-to-use and easy-to-manage nature of these appliancesthat matter the most. No wonder that most of the top names in the consumer electronics products are spending fortunes to be the leaders in the cutting edge display technologies.

For the layman who does not understand the meaning of these technology terms, the difference is there to be seen. The good old Samsung TV would be bulky since it has the picture tube in it but the new LCD /LED TVs would be slim and sleek with flat displays. And, you do not have to buy a trolley for keeping the new ones. These can be fixed on the walls. In this way, you save the considerable space for moving around. These are perfect for small spaces. Due their being slim, these are easy to carry as compared to the bulky ones. It is also a fact that the picture quality of these displays is better than the previous ones. This has largely to do with the high definition resolution levels compatibility of these displays and also with the use of the latest display technology.

While getting the modern slim TVs installed in the homes or office, the points of their placement are to be duly considered. These shall be placed at the right places on the walls. The placement shall preferably be straight for most of the viewers since these are not visually appealing when these are viewed from the side angles. This is one aspect where the CRT scores over the modern LCD/LED ones. CRT based Samsung TV will give the same picture irrespective of the place or angle from where you view it.

Plasma TVs are yet another innovation in the display technology. There are more long lasting than the LCD TV/LED TV ones. The only disadvantage that these currently face is that the impressions of the last images remain on the screen for a long time even after the TV is switched off. The companies are making efforts to get over this drawback.

There is no doubt that the modern TVs are an improvement over the others, both in terms of technology as well as user experience. It is also a fact that these are more practical to use. That is also the reason why most of the modern homes use these for setting up modern systems like the home theatre. These have also taken the wall space of organisations where these find good application in lobby, waiting rooms, visitor’s areas and other such area where the works not going on.
