Sarnoff Corporation has recently revealed its S-cubed Technology for CRTs. The new CRT design shrinks the depth of 32 inch televisions and computer monitors from 22 inches to only 11 inches while improving overall picture quality.
The resulting shallow-profile displays could eliminate the need for deep TV cabinets and free up floor space in viewing areas, or free up desk space with low-cost, high quality PC monitors.
Sarnoff’s proprietary S-cubed Technology uses traditional CRT technology in conjunction with two additional electron fields to decrease the depth of large monitors by about 50%, while increasing picture quality by reducing the spot size of the beam.
Because the new design is based on the standard CRT model, monitors can be manufactured using existing CRT assembly lines, holding down manufacturing costs.
Sarnoff claim that the production of monitors using its technology will result in only a 10-15% increase in cost.
