The Evolution of Display Technology:
From CRT TVs to 4K Laser Projectors
In addition to the changes in size and shape, the flat panel began its gradual but meaningful resolution evolution. Image size continued to grow and resolution with it. When the Blu-Ray format (1080p) was introduced in 2006, it was as big a step forward as anyone could ever imagine, until 4K was introduced in 2012. In the first couple of years of 4K, our customers would often ask us, “Do I really need 4K, and what the heck is it?” That answer has always been a resounding “yes” to 4K. The other question we still hear regularly is “isn’t the image quality of a flat panel superior to that of a projector?” These individuals must have known some sad person who paid a bunch of money for a three-gun CRT projector, which was often very expensive and never worked quite right. Today’s 4K laser projectors are quite simply amazing and mesmerizing and must be seen to be appreciated.
