hat do you see when you browse the new video displays at your local big box electronic store? Wall-to-wall, gigantic, flat screens displaying (hopefully) high definition material, are front and Wcenter. The glass tube CRT TVs—relics of standard-def technology from it’s earliest
beginnings—are shunted to the side, on sale for a fraction of the cost of a plasma display. Yet isn’t it ironic that as they face imminent extinction because of the proliferation of larger and larger LCD and plasma displays, CRTs are still held as the “gold standard” for making critical color evaluation in a broadcast professional editing or color-timing environment. The CRT is still the best device for displaying interlaced scanning and multi-scan resolutions. CRTs are still considered excellent at reproducing a good color gamut and have a fairly accurate and predictable grey scale. The downside of course, is excessive weight, bulk, the need for occasional calibration and limited brightness. LCDs and plasmas will always be compared to the “look” of that ancient, low-tech gas filled tube. Blame the computer. As CRTs are phased out because of their bulk, weight, power consumption and expense in manufacturing larger and larger tubes for display, the LCDs were lauded for their compact design and longer life span. However, LCDs had problems initially – slow decay of images, lack of resolution, dim whites, washed-out black detail, etc., not to mention the incredible expense in manufacturing any LCD display over 21 inches diagonal. Most of these problems have been overcome recently by newer LCD displays or by its lower cost cousin, the plasma display.
LCDs rely on shutter control (pixel by pixel) of the light emitted by a backlight. Most LCD screens use a fluorescent tube for a backlight that has a limited color temperature and spectrum and thus an RGB gamut that is smaller than a CRT. LCDs significantly lack green saturation and plasmas have a slightly larger gamut (also lacking in green). Both display brighter images yet both save energy, weight and easily exceed CRT sizes. plasma screens are emissive displays creating a neon/xenon gas discharge cycle, which, in turn, causes UV radiation to stimulate phosphors to glow.At this time, plasma displays have been the most popular largely CRT technology does not represent the absolute limit of human color perception (it never was meant to), and yes the phosphors are prone to drift in color and the monitor will need to be recalibrated often. Also, there are other flat-screen and projection technologies getting more advanced and affordable all the time (wider viewing angle, improved contrast. reduced lag, etc.). There are Digital Light (micro-mirror) projectors, DLP (front and rear type, single and three-chip type). There are of course all those plasma panel and LCOS (a reflective technology), then there’s pulsed backlit and LED backlit LCDs coming that are getting closer to displaying images similar in color gamut to that of a CRT but with greater brightness, resolution and size 2006 FILMLOOK Inc.

(up to theatrical-sized screens). For now* it is best to view your final project and make critical judgments of color on a carefully calibrated broadcast CRT. After all, 90% of the displays out there are still CRT based, and that’s how most people are going to see your finished project.
*eCinema Systems Inc. is one exception to the rule with a specially made LCD that rivals broadcast color grade monitors and is probably the future replacement technology for high quality reference CRTs.
