    Exciting stuff, that contrast ratio is definately something to write home about. Wonder how much it is. I suppose because I've asked I can't afford it. :p

    Why are high-end CRT's not suitable for HD content?

    High end CRT's are suitable for HD content but they're expensive and bulky, plus the high end ones are very expensive. OLED displays are compact, less expensive, and offer similar video quality plus they can be mounted on the camera.

    New technology is always expensive at first. Whether or not this tech eventually becomes cheaper, or dies out leading to better things, innovation is always a good sign.

    Can high end CRT's get any where near the contrast ratios of OLEDS?
    I always assumed the main drawback of a CRT was the contrast on it. I imagine an OLED is more efficient too? So longer battery life etc?

    Seeing as the current Sony XEL-1 11" OLED TV is around $2500, I'm pretty sure that this won't be far off. A store close by us has one on display, and it's pretty amazing. Go and look at one.
