With many television stations changing to high definition, consumers are more and more shopping for new televisions. LCD or Liquid Crystal Display is becoming a popular option for shoppers. A LCD tv utilizes a flat panel TV and liquid crystals to create the picture that a viewer sees. This technology is the same type as used for cell telephones or monitors. A brand presently on the market is the Sony LCD TV.
The LCD television stands for Liquid Crystal Display. This is essentially is a flat panel television that is constructed of two layers of a glass type material. This material is polarized and stuck together. One of the layers has a special polymer coating that holds individual crystals. Electricity flows through the crystals which allow them to let light through or block it out and that essentially creates the images we see on a television. This technology creates a sharper and more brilliant picture.
