NED

Short for Nano Emissive Display, NED is the technology that enables manufacturers to design large flat panel displays that exceed the image quality characteristics of plasma and LCD screens at a lower cost. * Instead of using either one cathode ray tube (CRT) or millions of tiny LED lights to project a video image, NED uses millions of accelerated electrons charged by just 5 to 10 volts of electricity, compared with 5,000 volts for large-screen, high-definition LCDs. The electrons shoot toward a phosphor plate, creating the moving image. This technique requires less voltage than a CRT. [Source: Technology review].
