NEC 43″ CRT Now Available

NEC have finally launched the 43 inch CRV43 CRT monitor that was first shown at CES last year. The CRV43 is a large curved monitor that carries a hefty $8000 price tag. The monitor is not just 1 screen and is actually 4 that are stitched together side by side to create the large curve.

The NEC monitor has a resolution of 2880 x 900 pixels (32:10 aspect ratio) which are created from the 4 DLP monitors. The screens are all LED backlit and have a response time of 0.02 seconds. DVI-D and HDMI 1.3 inputs are included.

The screen doesn’t appear to be designed for consoles and is more inline with computers that can handle the crazy resolution that’s not too standard. Just imagine a cool FPS or driving game on one of these. It would be fantastic.

“The NEC CRV43 curved display provides an excitingly immersive viewing experience for any type of user,” said Keith Yanke, Director of Product Marketing for NEC Display Solutions. “Its lightning-fast response time coupled with its seamless curved screen provides enhanced comfort, decreased frustration and increased productivity. The monitor eliminates the bezel and screen gap issues that have complicated users’ work environment for years.”

    The problem with this: Most programming isn’t made for screens this wide, so either portions of the screen won’t get used, or stuff will be badly stretched. No thanks.
