Yes, I am sure that there is a layer of very thin glass under there. There are conductive electrical connections masked onto the glass for each pixel on the panel.
Here in the West Coast earthquake zone the stores get a run on new HDTV screens every time we have a medium or large quake. Anything that tips a flat panel onto it's face breaks the glass on an LCD or PDP.
I would never use a large flat panel with the pedastal base it came with here on the West Coast. I always advise either a wall mount or a piece of furniture that mounts the HDTV on a vertical panel. I also use the security bar that cames with many wall mounts - not for security, but so a quake won't bounce the HDTV right off the mount.
