Types of TV Sets
A television set, also known as television receiver or tv, television, tube, satellite, telly, or computer screen, is an electronic device that integrates a tuner, monitor, and screens, for the express purpose of watching and listening to television broadcasting over cables or satellites, either by using it as an external computer monitor, or by using it as an external television. There are various kinds of TV sets in the market, each having its own specific functions and features. Various kinds of TV sets are designed according to the specifications and preferences of the customer.
LCD televisions are better than plasma TVs in most cases, because they are more energy-efficient. LED and LCD displays have become very popular in the recent times, because they can be viewed from all sides, unlike the traditional CRT monitors. Plasma and LCD televisions offer a good picture quality for all audiences, as they are uniform in terms of color resolution. The size and shape of a television set can also affect the viewing experience, as wide-screened sets allow for a wider (taller) field of view (vertically) than medium-screened sets. There are certain types of television sets that can be connected to the internet directly, such as Freeview tv, satellite tv, HDTVs and DVRs, among others.
LCD monitors have the better resolution and color quality than their CRT counterparts, but they cost more. Wide screen TVs offer more viewing areas, but they are more expensive. Plasma and anamorphic TV technology have changed the way we watch television. These televisions are made from two separate panels, which are positioned side-by-side to form a television screen. The plasma television technology first appeared in the late 1970s and has since grown into one of the most popular forms of television.
