There are various advanced technologies flooding the television market. LED, LCD, plasma, 3D TV – the list seems to be growing all the time– and each new model more expensive than the last. You may think it an impossible task to acquire a plasma TV, for instance, with its hefty price tag. There is a way out – temporarily at least – renting a plasma TV for a short period just to try out the experience and find out if it is worth the cost.
With the wide array of stunning choices available, comes confusion. Which kind of technology to choose? If you have been considering buying or renting a plasma TV, here is some information that will be useful.
Although you can still purchase the old-fashioned, bulky cathode-ray tube (CRT) TV sets, most people choose to go for displays that incorporate the latest advances that technology has to offer. Renting a plasma TV or buying one is one such option.
The conventional TV sets we all grew up with use the cathode ray tube. In this, a cathode gun shoots electrons which form a picture on a glass screen. These images are formed from tiny dots called pixels in the three primary colors, which combine to give thousands of colors. While this type of equipment has developed over the last few decades, cathode ray tube technology still suffers from many restrictions.
CRTs are bulky, have a limited image size and are restricted to the outer casing into which they are fitted. This makes them very space consuming and they require special stands. Both of these factors make them an inelegant display solution, for both living rooms and for businesses.
Plasma screens, on the other hand, offer a sleek, slim alternative in a variety of sizes, greater viewing angles, more vivid colors and are space saving – many of them can be hung on your wall.
Plasma screens use the ability to maneuver and manage the movement of atomic particles. This contributes to enhance the television viewer's experience. Plasma is a gas with free flowing electrons and ions. When electricity passes through plasma, photons are released, providing light. The photons are used to project images by generating the primary colors. Like the old CRT technology, plasma displays also use varying intensity of illumination to generate different colors. They however offer a much greater number of colors.
Plasma TV screens remove the disadvantages of the traditional CRT television sets. On the one hand, size is no more a big constraint. The bulky outer casings are also not necessary as plasma TV screens are thin and sleek and can be mounted on a living room wall like a work of art.
If you would like to try a glossy new plasma TV before you decide to purchase one, go for renting a plasma TV from a reliable rental company. Hire one over a short period, hang it on your wall and enjoy the experience. If you like it, you can always go for a plasma TV purchase later.
