Sony has been showing off a 19 inch FED (Field Emission Display) monitor from spin-off FET or Field Emission Technologies.
Not content with just showing a standard demo with a BluRay source, they’ve hooked up the 19″ FED monitor to 4 PS3’s at 4x 1080P playing Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.
Audiences were amazed by the lifelike quality of the images. There was no flicker whatsoever.
“The display used in this demonstration was the 19 inch nano-Spindt FED screen produced by FE Technologies, who is a company that has taken over the development of the FED technology that was being developed at Sony. This display contains over 10,000 electron sources called the nano-spindt emitter, per pixel. A fluorescent substance is exposed to the electrons from the emitters to produce light, and this format is very close to a cathode-ray tube in principle. The resulting view angle is wider in comparison to a LCD panel, and it shows superior performance when displaying moving images, with no blurring of the outline.”
FET also recently stated that they would have field emission monitors available starting next year for broadcast applications.
