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 LCD
s. The electrons shoot toward a phosphor plate, creating the moving image. This technique requires less voltage than a CRT. [Source: Technology review].
