What are LCD Televisions?
LCD TVs are based on a "transmissive" system in which fluorescent bulbs emit light which passes through a liquid crystal matrix. These crystals twist and untwist in order to let different frequencies of light pass through, thus generating the colors we see displayed on the screen. In earlier LCD TVs black level reproduction was limited, but advancements have been made in color and black level on conventional LCD TVs. A new type of LCD TV is now available in which the fluorescent bulbs have been replaced by a series of LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes). LCD TV screens are based on a special type of crystals that react to electrical current by changing shape (not changing color like the gasses in a Plasma screen).
