Types of TV’s

Buying a new TV can be a frustrating. You need to make the right choice while keeping your options open to new things. Also you need to be updated with the complete knowledge to buy your TV. You should also be up-to-date with the jargons that are associated with the new TV’s in Visual Impact Productions. In this section we will teach you the various factors that you need to understand before you zero in on a brand or a model Knoxville Led Screens.

Let us start with the basic model and move in the ascending order.


The CRT model is the abbreviation for the Cathode Ray Tube TV. This is a bulky model is one of the oldest form of TV. The reason the TV is bulky because of the huge cathode ray tube and a projector gun. The technology uses electrons to create an image on the screen when they are bombarded onto it and excite the particles on the screen.

These screens are used mainly in laptop screens as well as TV’s. LCD is the abbreviated form of Liquid Crystal Display. This display can block light or allow it to pass. The screen consists of liquid crystals. The color of these blocks can be amplified by changing the current passing through the screen. None of the LCD screens can create their own light and that is why you need an external source to create an image on the screen.


LED is an extension of the LCD technology. The LED is an abbreviated form of Light Emitting Diodes which are somewhat the same concept as that of LCD. The screen is pasted with LED diodes and they are not lit up by any fluorescent device contrary to the LCD devices. LED allows the screen thickness to be smaller than that of LCD screens as well as be more efficient in terms of energy absorbed. There is another classification of LED screens that are Back-Lit LED or Edge-Lit LED screens.


The word Plasma has been attributed to this set of TV’s because they have a mixture of gasses embedded within the walls of two plates of glasses within the TV. These gasses when electrified with a current create an image that can be viewed on the TV. This is one of the latest technology that has been added.


This is the latest form of TV’s added to the list. The ‘O’ in OLED stands for organic which is the fusion of organic elements like carbon to the TV for extra brightness and higher efficiency.

Other than these TV’s you can also find the Jumbotron which is a technology created by Sony. This Jumbotron is used for screening of matches in stadiums or for larger displays.
