Television is one of the commonest of the electronic appliances that you will find in almost every Indian home. It has emerged as one of the amazing mediums of entertainment that bind the family together. 

The technological advancement over the years has kept the interest of people in TV alive. From Black and White TV to CRT TV to LED TV, Smart TV and more, the technology has changed in the way the TV has evolved over the years. In this post, we will see the technologies that have ruled the television industry over the years. Read on!

  • CRT TV

CRT TVs back to 1930s, but it was until in the last decade that the sales of the slimmer and versatile LCD units took over CRT TVs. The TV that you buy between late 1960 and 2000 was a CRT TV. In its prime days, CRT TV was one of the best technologies that drive the Indian market. 

  • LCD and Plasma 

Flat TV screen started to appear in the late 1990s – the TVs were lighter so that could be mounted on a wall and came in larger screen sizes. In early 2000, the customers had the choice of flat TV technologies – LCD and Plasma. Plasma sets contained richer black levels, contrast and between viewing angles, but less energy efficient than LCD. 

  • High definition 

High definition or HD TV has 4 times the resolution compared with standard definition either 1280 x 720p or 1920 x 1080p. A high-resolution picture means more lines and being sharp, colourful with more details. Hence, high definition was soon embraced. 

  • LED TVs

In 2009-2010, the rise of LED TV started. The technology was similar to LCD but made the use of tiny LEDs as its backlighting source instead of CCFL lamps. LED TV helped users enjoy sharper and brighter frames. However, when they launched, LED TVs were costlier. 

  • Smart TVs

In 208-2019, televisions dubbed as ‘Smart TVs’ have built-in connectivity, which allows connecting to the web to go online and use it like a computer minus word processing. It has given a new lease of life to TV, which was losing to digital entertainment mediums. Now, you can enjoy video streaming services and all other apps that you access on your smartphone on your television. 

Other TV technologies that have evolved recently are OLEDs and QLEDs. These TVs are brighter, sharper and provide attention to detail. Smart TVs and recently evolved OLED and QLEDs are priced higher, but they are worth it in terms of screen resolution and performance.
