The Different Types of Televisions

Most every home has at least one television set and in some instances, there are several sets per home. Most of us have our favorite shows that we love to watch. It would be very hard for us to do without the television now days, it has become one of the most innovative creations by mankind and one of the highest in demand. There are actually several different types of televisions.

Tube televisions

This is the 'old fashioned' television which uses cathode ray tubes which is a form of a vacuum tube and is about 40 inches long. So you can imagine that this type of television is quite bulky in size. This type of TV is known to have a long life span and maintain its clear picture and good viewing from all angles.

Digital light processing televisions

This television is so named because it is able to digitally process light with the help of an optical semiconductor the digital micro mirror device which is also called the DMD chip. This amazing chip consists of over a million mirrors which are smaller in size than the width of a human hair. This TV was brought to the market in 1987 by Texas Instruments and now there are more than 50 different manufacturers. This TV comes in both rear and front projection. It also has a minor flaw in its viewing that has been dubbed the rainbow effect.

Liquid crystal display televisions

This is new technology in televisions and is becoming quite popular. The LCD television can be in the form of rear projection or flat screen. The flat panels are especially popular because of their sleek lightweight design. The LCD television is not susceptible to burn in but a flaw known as the ghost effect has been noted at times which is similar to double vision.

Plasma televisions

The plasma TV is the high end of televisions and uses cutting edge technology and produces superior crisp pictures. They come in the popular flat screen models and range from small to large screen. This is quickly becoming the most desired and popular television on the market today.

There is such a wide range of televisions available on the market today from tiny set to home theater systems, plasma TVs to LCDs. The hard part will be deciding which one is best for you. A lot might depend upon your budget as some of the newer technology televisions can be quite pricey and run into the thousands of dollars.
