Anyone who has purchased a TV between the 1960s and 2000s must have got a color television or a cathode ray tube (CRT) set. The CRT technology dominated for close to three-quarters of a century. The first CRT made its way into the world market in the 1930s, and it was 2007 when the sales of the LCD units tool over them.

  • LCD and Plasma

In the 2000s, a TV buyer had to choose between two flat variants technologies in the form of LCD and Plasma. LCD TV sets included backlight, which shines via a polarizing filter and color liquid colored crystal cells. On the other hand, Plasma screens comprised of thousands of cells between glass panels. Plasma sets had better black levels, viewing angles, contrast and high refresh rate for blur-free images. Nonetheless, they are less energy efficient than LCD. They were overtaken in popularity by LCD and LED technologies.

  • HD TV

High definition television or HD is up to 5 times better than standard definition resolution either 1280 x 720 pixels or 1920 x 1080 pixels. An HD TV was sharper, colorful and detailed with higher resolution. The advent of HD TV stormed the market and people started buying a set that was compatible with it.

  • LED TV

In the year 2010, LED screens came and conquered the TV world. The technology was similar to LCD, but it was using tiny LEDs as the backlight instead of the conventional CCFL lamps. Ever since then, LED televisions have been a major success in the Indian market and elsewhere. What’s more, the competition between many established and new brands helped a customer pay lower for an LED set.

Nowadays, Smart TVs are a rage in the market due to the increased penetration of the internet all over.

  • OLED and QLED

The full form of OLED is the Organic Light Emitting Diodes. Unlike an LED or LCD TV needing a backlight, the carbon film inside the OLED TVs’ panel emits own light. On the other hand, QLED stands for Quantum Dot LED displays. Quantum dots are tiny particles that are nanometer in size and sits within the displays. They are designed in such a way to emit brighter and vibrant colors.

Currently, OLED TV technology is being used extensively by LG, whereas Samsung is pushing for QLED technology.
