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.

The official marketing text of Samsung PS42S5S plasma panel as supplied by the manufacturer
Interest in TV picture quality arose with conventional analog broadcasting, but it has been intensified by the advent of HD broadcasting and new kinds of display device. To satisfy this interest, ceaseless technological research and development have been pursed.

Samsung has perfected its own unique picture technology, DNIe™. What distinguishes DNIe™ is that it uses its own algorithm to analyze any kind of input signal (HD, SD, RF or DVD) and convert it to an optimal output signal tailored to any kind of display device (Flat CRT TV, Projection TV, Plasma TV, LCD TV), guaranteeing a lifelike picture every time.

Digital TV
The analog method that has been used up to this point, refers to transmitting the brightness of light and loudness of sound as they are by expressing as electric voltage.

Digital TV, on the other hand, means transmitting via digital transmission method after digitally processing everything, including video, audio, and data.
Digital processing refers to conversion of an analog signal, such as video, audio, and data, into a digital signal composed of 0 and 1.This is accomplishedthrough the use of highly advanced digital technology. A converted signal is compressed, along with other information, and transmitted via thedigital transmission method. The transmitted signal is separated into the original video and audio, and then< decompressed (demultiplexing & decoding) at the receiver. In other words, all information is converted into numbers and then sent and received.
