What is LCD?
LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display.
LCD technology has been around for a long time but it is now becoming very popular for flat-screen computer monitors and televisions. It can provide a much better, brighter image than the old CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitors and TVs.
Here is a very basic summary of how LCD works. (Maybe someone can expand on this.)
There is a set of two transparent panels with a liquid crystal solution between them. Light is shined from behind the panels. Each crystal either allows light to pass through or blocks the light. The configuration of the crystals forms the image.
What is PAL, NTSC and SECAM? How do I know which broadcasting/video format is workable in my country?
There are 3 main standards broadcasting/video format in use around the world: PAL, NTSC and SECAM. Each one is incompatible with the other. For example, a recording made in the France could not be played on an American VCR or DVD player.
If you or your clients view video tapes or DVD’s that are from outside of the United States, or send videos abroad, you must first convertthe tape or disc to or from the foreign television standard.
