Plasma panels have fairly large pixels and are therefore mostly available in large sizes. These screens are flat and thin and their main advantage over LCD screens is that colours look the same, regardless of the angle from which you are viewing the screen. Plasma panels are very well suited for use as television or for displaying information and ads in public spaces.
