Motorola demonstrates nano emissive flat screen prototype

By Derek Sooman on
Motorola has revealed the prototypes of a nano emissive display. This technology should lead to larger flat panel displays that are cheaper and have a better quality display. The prototype, which was shown by the firm on Monday, is built using carbon nanotube technology (CNT).

According to Motorola, the demonstrated NED display represents a portion of a 42-inch HDTV with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, is less than 1-inch thick and was created by "a scalable method of growing CNTs directly on glass" in order to enable an energy efficient design. The prototype hinted not only to a "fundamentally" changed design and fabrication for flat panel displays but also revealed "high brightness, excellent uniformity and color purity", the company said.

No word as yet on availability of a finished product, but the smart money is on later this year, apparently.
