The article focuses on the large flat-screen displays. They are slick, modern, space-saving, easy to use in bright rooms and make a style statement. Large flat-screen displays are just as much in vogue in the world of corporate training and presentations as they are in living rooms. They are also more affordable than ever. But potential users need to understand what the technology can and can't deliver. Until very recently, the only practical and economic way for trainers to produce a big picture that allows a whole group to see what's happening on the computer monitor was to use a video/ data projector. Plasma screens in sizes of 42 inches diagonal or above were expensive, and large liquid crystal displays screens only started to become available in mid-2003. Within the last 12 months that has all changed. Plasma screen prices have plummeted, and 42in screens are now available for around £2,000 — half the price they were two years ago. Furthermore, the size of flat screens has increased, with 50in and 60in plasma screens now on the market and 72in models being previewed at trade shows.
