IR and BI also not the same
Still, you can't blame the user on that or on the content providers. That would have to lie on the faults of the set. All I'm saying is, if the Plasma set involved shows any hint of IR or even BI, then that would be still the fault of the set (no matter how big or small). Thus in response, the manufacturer would have to increase the tolerance of future sets against this.
Otherwise, if that's his viewing habits, then I guess LCD would suit him more.
But you cannot blame this on the user
Well that's just me. Either way, I guess we're all free to agree or disagree.
I do hope to test this for myself someday. In where I'm from, majority of content viewed on a TV screen is still in SD (we only have two-three HD channels available on Cable or pay-TV here........and HD game consoles and blu-ray and HD devices can only be afforded by less than 10% of the population) as of 2009.
What I'd want to hopefully test is as to regards to how plasma TV sets handle 4:3 and SD content (which is dominant in the Philippines as of 2009). Many experts have said that plasmas handle 4:3 content better than LCDs.....but with this new discussion, there is sort of debate as to whether this holds true or not (with claims that stretching 4:3 content puts some pressure on a plasma set).
Now that's what I want to hopefully test someday (whether it exists or not).
Majority of TV channels in Asia-Pacific ALWAYS have a constant logo watermark ALL THE TIME. I'm talking about Taiwanese channels, HBO ASIA, Discovery SEASIA, National Geographic Asia, Foxcrime, FX ASIA, etc.
All of the channels operated by STAR TV (owned by Rupert Murcdoch) do this.
So yeah, I'd like to know how newer plasmas stack up to this. It would be interesting to experiment and observe this for myself. It's been 5-10 years since plasmas suffered from major burn-in. Hence, I'd like to see how far we've gone..............when we pit it against content that is considered 'toxic' for plasma.
It's gonna be interesting to test this out for myself
