LED & LCD TV Explained
LED, which stands for “light emitting diodes,” differs from general LCD TVs in that LCDs use fluorescent lights (Cold Cathode Flourescent Lamps) while LEDs use light emitting diodes. Also, the placement of the lights on an LED TV can differ.
LED TVs provide a better picture for two basic reasons. First, LED TVs work with a color wheel or distinct RGB-colored lights (red, green, blue) to produce more realistic and sharper colors. Second, light emitting diodes can be dimmed. The dimming capability on the back lighting in an LED TV allows the picture to display with a truer black by darkening the lights and blocking more light from passing through the panel. This capability is not present on edge-lit LED TVs but only on Direct LED TVs.

First of all, bluetooth was invented in the 90′s by Ericsson. The word bluetooth derives from the danish king Harald Blatand in the 10th century.Harald united the tribes of Denmark into one nation, gaining a reputation among historians for getting different peoples to communicate. It’s this reason that when the technology invented in the mid 1990s that united different devices through wireless communication was called Bluetooth. The Bluetooth logo combines the symbols of Harald’s initials.
How does Bluetooth work?
Bluetooth works using wave radio technology through the 2.4 to 2.485GHz transmission band. It’s relatively low powered, giving it an long battery life. A Bluetooth device contains a small computer chip, enabling the user to connect that to other products within a ‘Personal Area Network’ (PAN) of 50 metres.
Bluetooth can transfer files between two mobile phones without physically needing to attach them with wires. Bluetooth can be used to connect to handsfee systems or else transfer audio information from mobile phone to either a headset,sound system or even a car stereo. This particualr feature in blueooth is called Advanced Audio Distribution (A2DP).
Benefitting from multimedia connectivity, the CZ702E enables you to listen to your CDs, MP3/WMA files and even the files stored on your iPod or iPhone by connecting them to the USB port.
