Term Definition

Flat Panel TV Sets Thin, lightweight TV sets that can be hung on a wall. Current flat panels (also called “flat screens”) use LCD or Plasma screen technology.
Firewire See IEEE 1394.
Front Projectors These are TV sets that create the image on a small display, and then enlarge it by projecting it onto a wall or stand-alone screen (much like a movie theater). Front projectors tend to be dimmer than direct flat panels or CRTs, and often require the room to be dark to be able to see the image clearly.
