The Plasma Revolution

Although plasma screens were invented more than forty years ago it is only since 1999 that plasma televisions have been commonly available to the public. In the last few years prices have dropped dramatically by up to fifty per cent.

But this is not the only changes happening on the plasma front. Larger screens are being experimented with to produce better images. One such outcome is the ‘infinity’ screen. That is, no visible edges. You literally get more picture for your money and no frame!

Perhaps the best feature that these screens have brought us is the clarity of the picture. We are more savvy and discerning these days and demand more and better innovations for our hard earned cash.

Then there is the question of sound. Don’t you just hate it when you are watching some great action movie and the dialogue gets drowned out by all the background noise?

Well, this could be a thing of the past since some of the newer sets have a voice enhancer which automatically projects the dialogue should the background noise be high

These screens don’t come cheap though! One being advertised, a 103 inch model, goes for a ‘modest’ $70,000! In some places that could buy a house!

It seems like an excessive amount of money just to buy a TV but our far more sophisticated taste demands that we move ever forward on the technology front. It may
be just a matter of time until you succumb!
