New TV - screen or pane?

One of Philips's promotional images

Glass enthusiasts will be interested to see 'DesignLine' - a new range of 'smart' televisions just launched by electronics company Philips.

The 'DesignLine' television consists of a single rectangular sheet of glass (46 or 55 inches wide) that shades from transparent to black and can lean against a wall, hang from it or be mounted on a stand. Does that make it a TV screen or a TV pane? The pictures are generated by a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD).
