The full form of LCD is Liquid Crystal Display and is one of the latest technologies used in digital clocks, calculators, stereos, weighing scales and many other home appliances including TV, of course. As its full form suggests the use of crystal in liquid form by its reaction to electricity initiates definite twists and turns in crystal leading to better display of images. The LCD technology has to be credited for giving a slimmer, sleeker and brighter display look to the then existing voluminous TV sets.
Features which make LCD TVs popular –
- Bright & Flat Screens – Yes, these flat screens offer a highly satisfying TV viewing experience even with too bright or dimly light room conditions. At the same time, viewing content on these TV screens does not cause an eye strain as they offer clear and ease in viewing as against the flickering action of CRT TV screens.
- Better Viewing Angles and Space between pixels – Flat Screen TVs offer viewing angles up to 160° and hence can be viewed from a wider purview. Even if you divide this into half from the middle of the room, viewers get 80° from each side. The space between pixels on the screen determines the sharpness and image clarity of the screen. The lesser the space between them the sharper the images and clearer the pictures which promise a satisfactory viewing experience.
- Better Quality Display – A LCD TV is compatible with multiple display formats viz. HDTV, regular TV, all video formats (incl. home video). A regular LCD TV is fitted with the following inputs HDMI, USB, S-video and component video, RGB 15 pin computer input and other allied inputs. In fact, it can be considered as a computer monitor and can be used to display content available on the Internet as well.
- Lifespan of a LCD TV – Put aside the doubt that LCD TVs last for a short span. If you are regular viewer of TV content with on an average 6-7 hours of TV viewing, the LCD TV will last for more than 15 years. On the other hand, an almost 18 plus hours of TV viewing would definitely lower its age to not more than 10 – 15 years.
With few of these crucial pointers, we hope to have offered a through brief on what LCD is all about.
