What is the difference between a LCD tv and a LCD monitor please?
A. The next answer has nothing to do with this question. I will return when I have a more complete answer, but to begin with an LCD TV has a tuner in it while an LCD Monitor does not. LCD TVs are designed for use in higher light situations such as a bright room, LCD monitors are designed for use in controlled light environments such as offices. There are other differences, but you need to compare them directly which is hard since most Web sites don't allow cross category comparison. The best way to compare is to go to a big box retailer and compare them. But of course TVs and Monitors are in different departments. If you ask nicely maybe they'll let you set them up side by side. A. Outward appearances are definitely deceiving when it comes to LCD and Plasma televisions. Although both types of televisions are flat and thin, they employ different technology in an attempt to deliver similar results. Plasma TV Overview Plasma television technology is based loosely on the fluorescent light bulb. The display itself consists of cells. Within each cell two glass panels are separated by a narrow gap in which neon-xenon gas is injected and sealed in plasma form during the manufacturing process. The gas is electrically charged at specific intervals when the Plasma set is in use. The charged gas then strikes red, green, and blue phosphors, thus creating a television image. Each group of red, green, and blue phosphors is called a pixel (picture element). Although Plasma television technology eliminate the need for the bulky picture tube and electron beam scanning of traditional televisions, because it still employs the burning of phosphors to generate an image, Plasma televisions still suffer from some of the drawbacks of traditional televisions, such as heat generation and screen-burn of static images. LCD TV Overview LCD televisions, on the other hand, use a different technology (see also question #1 for this same explanation). Basically, LCD panels are made of two layers of transparent material, which are polarized, and are "glued" together. One of the layers is coated with a special polymer that holds the individual liquid crystals. Current is then passed through individual crystals, which allow the crystals to pass or block light to create images. LCD crystals do not produce their own light, so an external light source, such as florescent bulb is needed for the image created by the LCD to become visible to the viewer. Unlike standard CRT and Plasma televisions, since there are no phosphors that light up, less power is need for operation and the light source in an LCD television generates less heat than a Plasma or traditional television. Also, because of the nature of LCD technology, there is no radiation emitted from the screen itself. Plasma vs LCD The ADVANTAGES of Plasma over LCD are: 1. Larger screen size availability. 2. Better contrast ratio and ability to render deeper blacks. 3. Better color accuracy and saturation. 4. Better motion tracking (little or no motion lag in fast moving images). The DISADVANTAGES of Plasma vs LCD include: 1. Plasma TVs are more susceptible to burn-in of static images. 2. Plasma TVs generate more heat than LCDs, due to the need to light of phosphors to create the images. 3. Does not perform as well at higher altitudes. 4. Shorter display life span (about 30,000 hours or 8 hrs of viewing a day for 9 years) than LCD. However, screen life span is improving to as high as 60,000 hours. due to technology improvements. LCD television ADVANTAGES over Plasma include: 1. No burn-in of static images. 2. Cooler running temperature. 3. No high altitude use issues. 4. Increased image brightness over Plasma. 5. Longer display life (about 60,000 hours - at which time all you may need to do is replace the light source, not the entire set). This can vary according other environmental and use factors. 6. Lighter weight (when comparing same screen sizes) than Plasma counterparts. DISADVANTAGES of LCD vs Plasma televisions include: 1. Lower contrast ratio, not as good rendering deep blacks. 2. Not as good at tracking motion (fast moving objects may exhibit lag artifacts) - However, this is improving. 3. Not as common in large screen sizes above 42-inches as Plasma. However, the number is growing fast, with some LCD sets having a screen size as large as 65-inches now available to the general public. 4. Although LCD televisions do not suffer from burn-in susceptibility, it is possible that individual pixels on an LCD televisions can burn out, causing small, visible, black or white dots to appear on the screen. Individual pixels cannot be repaired, the whole screen would need to be replaced at that point, if the individual pixel burnout becomes annoying to you. 5. LCD televisions are typically more expensive than equivalent-sized Plasma televisions (although this is changing), especially when comparing EDTV Plasmas to HDTV-LCD Televisions.

Answer: Unlike Plasma TV screens DLP and LCD last much are longer,and are considered to both have superior image quality. LCD screenstend to have slightly better contrast, wit…h a larger range of blackand white color shades. DLP, however, still has faster refreshrates than LCD (although LCD has been vastly improved in this areaover the last two years). This can have implications if you arereally into high-action motion (sports, action movies), becausemovement may seem a little blurred with LCD at times. Also, you'llwant to remember that in order for you to get the best color out ofyour LCD, you have to sit right in front of it. LCD TVs also have aslightly shorter lifespan than DLPs, with only 45,000 to 60,000hours compared to 75,000 hours or more. As far as price goes, LCDand DLP are still more expensive than Plasma, but like all thingsin time, their price has been coming down. And right now, DLP isslightly more expensive than LCD, but not by much. DLP, in oureyes, is the best investment, at least for the next few years. The biggest difference is that DLP is a projection technology. MostTVs do not use projection screens.
An LCD is an elaborate, electrically controlled color filter. The light comes from either a florescent tube or a bank of LEDs. A plasma TV set generates light much like your o…ld CRT Television; a phosphor is activated and emits photons of a specific color. The advantage of an LCD is that they use much less power than a plasma and do not suffer from image burn in as plasmas may. The advantage to plasmas is that they have much better response times (for showing fast moving object), better performance at extreme viewing angles and are generally cheaper than LCDs in comparable sizes.
A LCD projector projects the image to a screen in front of it like a slide projector projects the images of slides onto a screen while a LCD tv projects from behind the screen… like a large TV, the image coming to the screen from behind it rather from in front of it. That is basically the only difference. You can usually get a much larger image from a LCD projector than from a LCD tv. Projectors usually require more planning and installation events and you can not just pick it up and move it to another room easily.
Answer CRT (cathode ray tube) uses a massive tube housed behind the screen to shoot light at the screen. It is much wider than an LCD (liquid crystal display) monitor whi…ch uses liquefied crystalline which reacts to electrical signals passed across it to display colors.
Plasma screens emit light, from small gas chambers arranged in the glass screen as a matrix. LCD use a system of shutters held in liquid crystal between sheets of glass, the l…ight comes from a light source behind, from florescent tubes or white LEDs. Plasma screens use a series of cells between glass panels which contain neon-xenon gas, when the gas is charged, the image is displayed. LCD uses polymer and a form of liquid crystal to display the image.
LCD (light crystal display) have better resolution and are more energy efficient. If you want a a more vibrant color and deeper black in your picture then the Plasma TV would… be best and are less expensive on your wallet.
A plasma TV is better than a LCD TV. haha! :-)
Same thing except LCD TVs are televisions by themselves while LCD monitors can serve as either a television OR a computer monitor.
The monitor does not include the tuner to pick up radio signals, required for TV. Otherwise, they are the same. Most modern LCD TVs can be used as a computer monitor, bypassin…g the tuner.
Plasma panels give off image by using certain gases inside special cells and LCD panels give off image by modulating liquid crystals
Yes, but the LCD TV needs to have a VGA input.
thinner, better overall image quality and higher resolution, Normal television sets used a picture tube which at times delivered a snowy and distorted picture. a liquid crys…tal display provides sharper images and is far more energy efficient.
I believe you mean LCD and CRT's? Anyways, on a very basicexplanation, CRT's are simply: CRT's - In the back there is a device used for shooting electrons at aphosphor-coate…d screen which produces the image you see. Thesebeams are moved around on the screen by an internal or externaldevice (electrostatic deflection plate). This process is repeated anumber of times per second in order to keep up with the motion ofthe pictures shown. -For more in-depth into how that actually works with the electronsyou need to understand one thing. The only reason you see what youdo on the screen is because a charged electron striking a phosphorproduces a certain amount of light depending on how much of acharge it has. These different charges are what give us brightnessand contrast. Using different phosphors on the tube gives us ourmany different colors. It also has to do with the energy that isreleased by the electrons, but unless you are trying to learnQuantum theory, which I am going to assume not since you are askingthe difference between the two tv types and not about Quantumtheory itself, you don't really need to know all this... LCD's -They are in fact similar to CRT's in the sense that they are bothonly using charged electrons in order to produce an image, butLCD's have a different way of doing so. - In an LCD for example, aka Liquid Crystal Display, which hascrystals in a fluid (which I can't seem to find the name of) andare electronically charged in order to create the different colors. The difference between LCD and CRT TVs is in what they have tooffer. CRT TVs are heavy and bulky while LCDs are slim and conserveenergy. Also, since LCDs contain no phosphors, they do not sufferfrom "image burn", which was sometimes a problem with CRTs. Liquid Crystals do not actually produce light, so they require abacklight behind the liquid crystal layer. Some backlights areflourescent, and some are Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs).
The CRT monitor. These are heavy, use a lot of desk space and electricity. It is the oldest technology used by monitors and is based on the cathode ray tube technology that wa…s developed for television. Monitors are made with better parts which give a much higher display resolution and picture sharpness than a television. This type of monitor is no longer popular. The LCD monitor. Often called a Flat panel display. It is a newer technology than CRT. LCD monitors use much less desk space, are lightweight and use less electricity than CRT. This type of screen has been used for many years in the screens of laptop and notebook computers. It is also used for screens in every mobile phone, and many handheld technologies. It can produce a very high quality and stable display of graphics and text.
The biggest difference between an LCD and LED television is in the lighting. Both televisions have a liquid crystal display, however, with the LCD the lighting comes from fluo…rescent lamps behind the screen and with the LED the lighting comes from light emitting diodes behind the screen.
The main difference between an LED TV and an LCD TV is that the LED TV is back-lit by LED lights while the LCD TV is not. LED TV's are also more energy efficient than LCD ones….
The main difference between a computer monitor and an LCD TV monitor is the pixel density, which is nearly twice as high on a computer monitor. This is the main reason that a… computer monitor is more expensive. In addition, most computer monitors have a 16:10 aspect ratio, while TV monitors have a 16:9 aspect ratio.
