Will these make a comeback? Think about the used market now. Think about these weird mechanical keyboards and keysets. Obviously some models sell real low by people who don't know of the niche market, but these p/bvms, 16:9 sd sets, etc., etc., fetch absurd prices now given their age. What's stopping an entrepreneur from making new CRTs at a competitive pricepoint. Given how techs advanced the margins must be better.

CRTs are good for two things. Motion clarity and latency.

But as it turns out, motion clarity and latency are among the most important things when it comes to a majority of video games.

Every time I look at a CRT, I fucking cry.
For the past year or so, my Dad and I was fixing my room, moving shit out of the way so we can work. One day he looks over my 2002 Trinitron and said, "Why you have that piece of junk in room? You don't even use it." A while back we did the floors in my room and we had to move a bunch of furniture and the T.V ended up on the floor. I kept putting off getting a new stand for the T.V but I had no money left over since it was going towards my college expenses. So, I just had the Trinitron sitting on the floor collecting dust with my PS2 hooked up.
I kept arguing with him how some of my old shit won't work on my monitor unless I spend money on an OSSC or a similar device, again spending money I don't have. He left at that for a while.
One day I went out with an elder, I'm currently a PIMO Jehovah Witness, to deliver some watchtowers and shit for a letter campaign happening at the time. When I came back home, it was raining hard and I had to dry myself off. Dad just finished working in my room and was cleaning some dust off the floor. My mom comes up to me and tells me that Dad move some stuff out of my room and put in the backyard. I didn't care, I needed to throw some shit anyway. Then she told me that he throw away my TV. I didn't believe her at first until she told me to look out on the backyard.
I see my T.V soaking wet, outside, laying on top of the concrete. I was so fucking pissed. I asked Dad why he threw away my TV and he said that I can't keep old junk in the house. This is the same guy who has a FUCKING STEREO SETUP in the basement collecting dust and mold.
Eventually he asked if I want it back inside. The TV was fucking damaged with all the rain and bringing inside was going to be a giant pain in the ass, I just said to leave the TV alone.
From that moment, every time I see someone with a CRT, I wish I could destroy their set just so they can feel my pain.

The thing that killed them outside of production costs was distribution costs.
A gdm-fw900 is 100lbs, 22.5x20x20, and contains glass on its face while being weight biased towards that face.

A modern monitor of the same screen size is 14lbs, 21x8.5x20 and has a plastic face which doesn't damage as easy, especially considering the available protective packaging, and weight bias on the base.

Not only are modern monitors cheaper to ship, they're less likely to be damaged in the process.

LCDs have a lot of advantages but there is something cozy about a CRT tv and the colours look way nicer than an LCD and sort of glow off of the screen, compared to LCDs which are pretty soulless.

Whenever someone asks if CRT manufacturing could come back, show them this. A million dollar factory, top of the line robotics, hundreds of employees all to make a product which is unequivocally inferior to today’s televison sold exclusively to a niche market of retro game enthusiasts. It will never happen again. All the CRTs there are are all there’ll ever be.
>>
>>81046174
How can you recognize that electronics have advanced in displays but ignore the fact there have been advances in electronic components and manufacturing.
You're acting like this cutting edge technology is still cutting edge, and that you must use the same production practices they did decades ago to make the same product.

It'd be easier and cheaper today.
>>
>>81046104
Those CRTs you find are using scavenged stock.
Once that's gone it's literally impossible to manufacture more; not just because the infrastructure no longer exists, but because CRTs were only viable to produce because of scale: you needed a massive production line of thousands of people where one guy was an expert in making one thing. The professional market (PVM/BVMs which sold by the thousands) was only kept afloat by the consumer market (150 TVL pieces of shit which was sold by the millions).
Moreover, making the parts used is now illegal because of toxic chemicals.

No kickstarter is going to fund your gigantic illegal underground CRT assembly line that employs more people than the mafia, I'm sorry.

or a similar CRT alternative. As long as it has the important properties and is cheaper than a CRT I could see it happen.
I think the only downsides of FED and SED where the fixed resolution but the word has accepted that one anyway. I could be wrong though, if someone knows additional disadvantages let me know.
But if all you care about is latency and color accuracy then I think its an option once the patents expire. If they haven't already.

Once we get 480Hz black-frame insertion on OLEDs which already have instant pixel response times we can have CRT-like motion performance. 120Hz BFI is already good enough to match plasma.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLdkiyYeod8&t=526s

To achieve a 4K 10-Bit Signal @ 480Hz will require 143.33 Gbps of bandwidth
HDM 2.1 is still only capable of 48.0 Gbps

>>81047220
Typically this is true, but if for desktop usage where you are sitting within inches of the panel apparent brightness loss is diminished. 100 Nits of full-field viewing at that point is plenty. Now as far as HDR is concerned no, see this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRSm2v7bfVo

Also for OLED they've yet to introduce a high-efficiency deep-blue TADF emitters or top-emission pixel structure so there is still low-hanging fruit to significantly increase OLED's base brightness in the next few years. LG's already improved brightness by 20% on their C1/G1 models over the CX/GX models from last year (despite some early info that the new Evo panels on the G-series were going to be vastly different from the rest of the new lineup, early comparisons show improvements across the entire lineup which makes sense as why would LG bother with the production cost of producing two different panel lineups).

>Enjoy your phantom arrays on any lower framerate content.
Elaborate. 480hz is a perfect integer multiple of both 24p & 60p content so no judder should occur and refreshing the panel with blanked frames to clear the persistence of our eyes many times inside the interval window between frame advances of the picture should result in crisp motion clarity on the level of CRTs without any of associated "comet trails" or other issues associated with the phosphor decay of a bright object on a dark background that can occur in conventional impulse-driven displays because of the instantaneous response of the OLED pixel's switching time.\

Can OLED even hit 100 nits with <1ms persistence and 60p content.

>>81047445
If you're viewing 60p content and only display a frame for ~2ms (1 display frame, 7 inserted black frames), I suspect that would be prohibitively dark. Displaying a frame more than once is already standard for 24p content, but it doesn't matter that much since movies already have a metric fuckton of blur baked in.

>The OLED Motion Pro feature has settings for off, low, medium, high and auto. We measured the off/on pattern as shown above in each mode. As you increase the setting the "on" period is shortened which can help improve the motion clarity further, but does also impact the brightness of the screen. We measured the following maximum brightness levels in each mode (with OLED light setting at 100) - low setting 216 cd/m2, medium 148 cd/m2 and high 119 cd/m2. If the ABL feature kicks in then that will impact the brightness of the screen as well by another 50 cd/m2 or so.

>Even the high setting is likely to be sufficient for PC gaming and for many users we expect as it is still reasonably bright, and does provide the optimal motion clarity for this feature. The medium mode is a good middle ground too with only slightly reduced motion clarity. It's basically just a brighter version of the high mode in practice.
Current 120hz BFI-gen OLEDs can already achieve >100 nits full-field.

The chief of Blur Busters has studied OLED's behavior, which because of the instant pixel response going into and coming out of a full black frame, makes calculating a predicted total MPRT for a given refresh rate & BFI duty cycle elementary.
>60Hz BFI with OLED Motion High = 25%:75% ON:OFF = 4.2ms MPRT(100%) = 4 pixels of motionblur per 960 pixels/sec = similar to 240fps@240Hz nonstrobed LCD
More in-depth discussion here: https://forums.blurbusters.com/viewtopic.php?t=7161#p54106

Again this is all with only with 60 & 120 Hz BFI-schemes right now, but it's already damn close.
Higher native refresh rates for lower BFI duty cycles (or using a rolling scanline refresh scheme) will require higher brightness penalties so they still need to add more native brightness to the nits budget to spend on motion performance.

What do you mean by this? In terms of mimicking the aesthetic of older CRTs with their technical shortcomings (chromatic abberation, blurring, shadow mask scanlines, etc.) we already can:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkL40SkFVUE

In terms of how CRTs behave as discussed in >>81047704 & >>81047114 it's technically possible to deliver an impulse drive-like display via sample-and-hold means if the frame is cleared and refreshed fast enough. It's even possible to create a scanning OLED "backlight" that has a constant black frame that only updates procedural horizontal slices of the image many times during the presentation interval without any adjacent halo'ing owning to their per-pixel emissive nature just like with CRTs.

This shows a persistence of about 3ms or so for that 112 nit reading, and that's for 120Hz BFI. It doesn't even give graphs or nits for 60Hz BFI. It's nice that the option exists, at least, even if it's distractingly flickery by most people's standards (probably because it's not rolling scan).

3ms is pretty good, but even that's pretty strikingly different from CRT. I want to be able to see the little UFO dude's eyes.

It looks like OLED still has a way to go if it's going to get the persistence down. I don't really care who wins the race, OLED or microLED. I just want something that can finally replace my CRTs.

Well you can pretty much take the measured brightness of a 120hz BFI OLED and double it for 60hz BFI because you are literally cutting in half the amount of the time the OLED panel is spending displaying alternating black frames per second, effectively increasing the duty cycle of the "backlight" of full-field OLED emitters and effective brightness.

>It looks like OLED still has a way to go if it's going to get the persistence down. I don't really care who wins the race, OLED or microLED. I just want something that can finally replace my CRTs.
MicroLED is a fucking dead-end (resurrecting SED would be more feasible) because they can't get the pixels tiny enough cheaply enough to make displays smaller than 100" for ~$100,000+. This next hotness is instead QNED. Watch this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnGZYHJ9pCg
https://www.avsforum.com/threads/qned-quantum-nanorod-emitting-diode.3179823/
Rumor is Samsung is doing an internal company survey in September on whether to pursue QD-OLED with a true RGB subpixel on the path to a nano-inorganic self-emitting tech like QNED or QDEL. Whatever is coming down the road will still be sample-and-hold in nature (the supposed benefits of these new technologies are just a lack of burn-in, moar brightness, better color purity/gamut) so the issue of needing to jack up the native refresh rates to support a lower duty cycle still apply.

I kinda wonder if someone could purchase some OLEDs and make a custom aftermarket backplane for them via crowdfunding that could drive the OLED stack at 480 Hz or greater to achieve a true >1ms MPRT like CRTs. Their native pixel response times could already support such a true refresh range.

Record the analog signal for the display's frame time.
Then render it like a scan line. Simulate the decay the following frames.
Of course the display needs as many FPS as possible to not look like shit.

I'm just talking about the censorship mostly the editing and additions to old movies is my issue. VHS will remain unedited as opposed to digital.

>Well you can pretty much take the measured brightness of a 120hz BFI OLED and double it for 60hz BFI
Wut. Assuming it has the same 3ms persistence per frame, wouldn't the brightness be halved at 60Hz. And if the frame persistence is doubled to 6ms to be the same proportion of on/off as 120Hz BFI, wouldn't it be similar brightness but twice as blurry.

This is full of interesting things. But it also reminds me that most consumers don't care about low persistence, and people seeking "bright" screens are doing so for watching movies in their living rooms while the sun is out. Is there even a reason for any manufacturer to cater to the low persistence crowd.

I wonder if anyone out there is experimenting with cheap, but bright, rolling scan backlights that are in sync with cheap LCDs panels sitting on top of them. A simple white laser projected through the back that draws a bright horizontal line, using mirrors and motors or something. I don't think I'd even care about shitty blacks from it bleeding through.

That's more of a retarded rights holder problem than a technology problem.
But yes, with traditional media no one will ever be able to alter or remove your copy. In the modern era that is only assured for people who pirate their media.

Just a quick search finds this, which is probably a much less retarded idea than a straight up laser:

MicroLED may be a meme, but this actually seems like a reasonable application for it.

Not likely. Mechanical keyboards have an advantage. CRTs are a novelty more like those typewriter keyboards, but even less popular because of the unwieldy weight and depth compared to modern displays.

Only the most premium CRTs can still compete with microLED and OLED, your average consumer CRT is trash now.

America already has enough lead in their water, you don't need to build more CRTs to pollute it even further.

i just have a 14" crt that sits next to my playstation in the closet 90% of the time, but every now and then i will bring it out to play some crash bandicoot.
i prefer the crt for older games as they don't look right on lcd screens.

It grew on me. First impression was it's kinda sluggish but they got it right and I was biased against it (glorykills, videogamey item drops, climbing obstacles) and didn't believe anyone can make a good fps anymore. But it's really good.

they were being improved right up until they were replaced
don't kid yourself, they were replaced not because they were inferior at their job, nor at a point where they could not be improved further, but because newer technologies brought savings to manufacturers, lcds were cheaper to make, cheaper to ship, cheaper to store, etc

Damn I never knew about SEDs until they were mentioned itt. Wtf bros why was this tech taken from us? Seems superior to LCDs in every way.

Those are also consiberably cheaper and easier to manufacture and ship than crts. I wouldn't be surprised if the crt would have to cost 5-10k to reach similar profit margins.
>>
>>81050356
LCDs were superior in a fair number of ways too not simply because they were cheaper on manufacturing and logistics. CRTs have few remaining advantages left and they only cater towards certain niches. These niches are not profitable enough to continue non-defense production even if they weren't barred due to recent environment regulations on ewaste.

But they have. First practical reusable first stage rocket booster. And actually reusable, the space shuttle was reusable but not cost effective. SpaceX is already pricing several competitors out the market.
Don't understand why you can't criticize Musk without denying his company's achievements.

They only made changes in production and deployment but in vehicles in themselves. They are just re-inventing what the major cold-war powers did in the 1950s and 1960s.

Wrong, he would have been a child into adolescence during Laserdisc's heyday in the videophile market (It is likely his folks were this).
Laserdiscs only died when DVDs started come into the fold. They provided all of the benefits in a much smaller form factor.

It is just zoomer and millennial hipsters who never got exposed to that shit when it was actually new and are trying to be "counter-culture" while being taken in by novelty factor.

Boomers and Generation X-fags who actually grew up with the shit don't really miss it.

Because I don't doubt they've done good things, but they have not revolutionized space travel, nor made it 100x or 10x cheaper. It's about 10-20% cheaper in the best of cases. Reusability is overrated, and so on. SpaceX struggles with thins NASA did in the 70s. I like that they exist, but I do not drink the kool aid.

Maybe, but the original Doom is still played today, but Doom 2016 won't be played anymore at all in a few years.

you should look into the “despecialized” editions of star wars. Find it on your favorite torrent site.
