Plasma – LCD – LED – OLED
Plasma televisions have incredibly good picture quality with exceedingly deep black levels (superior contrast ratio), great shadow detail, accurate colors, and superb off-angle and uniformity characteristics. Unless these TVs specifically have an anti-glare coating, they typically are not good in brightly-lit rooms, therefore we usually do not recommend this type of display for standard convention center halls.
LCD (liquid crystal display) TVs have conventional cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlighting. CCFLs are bulky when compared to LED displays therefore you won’t have a “slim” LCD Display. LCD Displays are a great value and, as always, the picture quality of these displays is much better when you use high-definition source material, such as 720p or 1080p content from a Bluray player or computer.
LED LCD televisions owe their compact profile and improved contrast ratio to the array of tiny light-emitting diodes that provide the necessary backlighting instead of CCFLs.
LED stands for “light-emitting diode”, LED TVs use an array of LEDs as the backlight for an otherwise traditional LCD (liquid crystal display) TV, shining through a screen of LCD pixels. LED displays are slimmer than LCD displays and therefore have a better overall aesthetic look.
OLED televisions use “Organic Light-Emitting Diodes” which produce light themselves and don’t need a backlight. This gives you a super-slim TV and also great black levels. OLED TVs are the best looking TVs in terms of picture and aesthetic look.
