The year 1964 saw the invention of plasma display panel or Plasma Television by Donald L. Bitzer, H. Gene Slottow, and graduate student Robert Willson at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. They came up with this invention for the PLATO Computer System and since 1992, the screen sizes have increased resulting to the 21-inch display. The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A. has the largest plasma video display in the world.

Normally the Plasma displays have a wide color gamut and thus are bright in nature. They can be produced in large sizes, almost up to 262 cm diagonally.
