Flat screen TVs offer a wider use than just watching TV, using with a computer, or using for video games. Today, flat screen TVs can be seen in 3D and can be used as networking mediums.Gone are the huge bulky TVs in black and white. If you're old enough, you remember 13 channels that could be turned to with the use of a dial. Nowadays, TVs use infrared lights to change channels. TVs have changed drastically from their first introduction some 60 years ago to the general public. Flat screen TVs are a relatively new phenomenon and serve a wide variety of uses.The latest in flat screen TVs offer IPTV, or Internet Protocol Television, DLNA, or Digital Living Network Alliance, and LED (Light-Emitting Diode) lighting offer great features in modern flat screen TVs. Some TVs even offer VIERA Image Viewer to make the process of viewing HD (High Definition) images all the more easier. But what does all of this mean?The Internet Protocol Television, or IPTV, is a system that enables the television to receive through its Internet Protocol Suite the Internet instead of more common traditional methods of getting the Internet, such as through cable or satellite signals. This type of system allows the TV to be apart of a network and because the information is shared rather than received per se, the TV does not suffer from most complications in picture quality or delay as experienced with satellite and other forms of receiving information.The Digital Living Network Alliance, or DLNA, allows individual users to network within their own systems of TVs and computers. This is useful for sharing information between two computers and accessing information through one medium from another.Light-Emitting Diode lights used in LCD TVs has greatly enhanced picture contrast in LCD TVs. The LED lights project color/light onto the screen. LCD uses a system of shutters which open and close allowing light to be seen or hidden resulting in an image on the screen. Because of these fluctuations of light combined with its brightness, the image on the screen produces greater contrast than with traditional LCD or plasma flat screen TVs.The VIERA Image Viewer allows viewers to insert SD cards into the TV to view pictures as a part of a slide show. These images are shown in HD allowing for great picture quality.3D TV systems are also popular these days. These type of flat screen TVs use two methods to achieve the effect of images popping out of the flat screen. One method uses 2D plus depth, or also known as multi-view capture. This 2D plus depth results in the TV projecting "closer" images with lighter colors and "further" images in darker colors causing the mind to perceive some objects as closer than others. The other type of method which was made possible in the 1890s, but only recently made available through flat screen TVs, is the traditional method of using a blurry picture that when the eyes try to focus upon it causes the image to come alive.Today, TVs can be used for video conferences with people halfway around the world. Jules Verne correctly predicted this although people thought he was crazy. It has
become possible and we have not fully reached our capacity of uses for the TV. TV has been around for roughly 60 years but its trend will not fade anytime soon. Today's TVs have become woven into our society. It's no wonder they're used in every facet of our lives. For further information regarding flat screen TVs, please visit MyReviewsNow Online Shopping.
