Q: What is the difference between a Plasma screen and an LCD screen?
A: The main difference between plasma and LCD is how the pixels are lit up. In plasma screens, plasma gas is used to excite visible light photons, which produce colour on the screen through the lighting of the pixels into different colours. Thus, it is actually a gas that is responsible for the images you see on a plasma screen. LCD screens are quite different. In an LCD screen each pixel has three colours: red, green and blue and require a backlight to provide screen brightness. However, the liquid crystals, when energized, block certain colours in the pixels from showing, or at least showing as much. This produces the desired colour. The other main difference with LCD televisions is the backlight is always on.
