Advances in liquid crystal display (LCD
) technology have made it ''a real possibility'' to eliminate cathode-ray tubes (CRT) from all television sets, Sharp Corp.
Samples from the interior of the LCD

All three products have a 4mm display, which NEC claims is the industry's thinnest in the transflective type of LCDs
. Other features include the display of 65,536 colours, crosstalk-free fluid moving picture display and power consumption of 5mW - the industry's lowest level for LCDs
, according to the company.
One of the most promising is the use of LEP panels as backlights for LCDs
. While initial implementations of LEP backlights will probably incorporate backlight and liquid crystal display in separate modules, manufacturers could ultimately deposit the LEP panel directly on the LCD
glass plate for a completely integrated unit with sizeable savings in weight and better illumination than conventional backlights.
Integrated in the unit is a Video Graphics Array (VGA) display port for attaching the LCD

Sony said it aims to strengthen its small and midsize LCD
display business by obtaining technologies and production capacity for amorphous silicon thin film transistor LCDs
from Seiko Epson's LCD
unit, Epson Imaging Devices Corp.
It will contribute to the development of LCD
technology in China and will hasten the start-up of mass production in the new company.
James Li, chief executive officer at Syntax, said that his company will reduce the price of its LCDs
roughly 10 percent across all SKUs for the holiday season.
"Often, engineers do not assess the availability and life cycle of LCDs
," said Richard McKay, manager of value-added technology at Apollo Displays (Ronkonkoma, NY; www.apollodisplays.com).
