WHO Invented the Plasma TV For Us To Enjoy?
This Initial Flat Screen Model Television Was Displayed in 1964
As a matter of general knowledge every one wants to know who invented the Plasma TV. It is always good to know whatever information that you can get about any electronic item that you use.
This will give you a basic knowledge of the product and you can be careful with the do’s and don’ts using that basic knowledge on the product and your God given common sense.
As per many sources the first model of a Plasma TV was invented in July 1964 by two persons named Donald Bitzer and Gene Slottow.
They were both professors at the University of Illinois in America.
It is also said that they were assisted by an undergraduate student of the same university named Robert Wilson. Although this model was displayed it did not find commercial success until the invention of digital technology.
The technology used in Plasma TV in simple language is an emissive flat panel display where light is created by phosphors excited by a plasma discharge between two flat panels of glasses.
The inventors of Plasma TV Professors Donald Bitzer and Gene Slottow together with Robert Wilson based their research on finding an alternative to the bulky cathode ray tube (CRT) television sets. These men found that CRT monitors used for their computers were bad for displaying computer graphics.
Since its initial model was displayed in 1964 by the trio, many television broadcasting companies considered developing plasma television as a substitute to televisions using cathode ray tubes. But the invention and development of the Liquid Crystal Display screen delayed the progress of developing Plasma TV screens. Many years later, Larry Weber finally developed a sixty inch Plasma display panel prototype for Panasonic. He was also to combine the HDTV technology and the slim display to bring Plasma TV alive.
Today, Plasma televisions are undoubtedly the finest flat panel display screens available in the world, using state of the art technology. It brings out excellent crystal clear image quality and large screen sizes viewable from angle with the same effect.
Plasma display screen televisions are made up of a collection of cells, known as pixels. Each pixel is again subdivided in to three sub pixels. Each sub pixel represents a colour.
The colours represented are red, green and blue. Neon-Xenon gas in a plasma state is used to react with phosphors in each coloured sub pixel within the television panel to produce coloured light - red, green, or blue.
Each sub pixel within the plasma display screen is independently controlled by advanced electronics to produce billions of different colours.
Although these phosphors used in plasma pixels are similar to that used in Cathode Ray Tube Television and monitors, the gas between the glass panels makes it possible to give out a much better picture quality.
All of this means that you get perfect images and exceptional colour in a plasma television display screen which is less than 6 inches thick. The colours that you get on a plasma TV screen are rich and dynamic.
