Triple-glazed, low-emissive windows will become common, accounting for up to a third of sales in colder climates.
Because LCD and plasma TVs produce images in a fundamentally different manner — plasma is an emissive technology that generates light, whereas LCD is a transmissive technology that requires a backlight — there will also be some features unique to each type of display.
