Lol, this is hilarious, All right now that i'm done rolling on the floor laughing
This thread clearly has some very nostalgic people in it, but you have to realize your plans for 4:3 crt redomination are just nostalgic not practical.
The image quality on modern flat panels has caught up for the most part with even the best full hd crt's (I'm typing this on a 51 inch hd crt rear pro) noone wants to pay serious cash for hd crt's anymore let alone 4:3 curved tube dinosaurs
You can get flat panels that hit nearly as deep in the blacks, can hold their black better with bigger portions of the screen lit for better static contrast, provide a higher resolution than even hd crt's, draw less power etc etc.
You can even do most of that and more on the cheap (600-800$) and buy a plasma which currently have life expectancies of 30 years (far from the original plasmas which burnt up in a few years).
If you can think of 1 legitimate reason why we should start production of crt's again i'm all ears, otherwise thanks for brightning my day with a good laugh
EDIT: I should say i'm a big crt fan myself, and i love my 51" beast with all the tweaks and time i've put into it, but the majority of people don't know any of the benefits of crts, theres just no way you could convince even 3-4 % of the population that they should trade in their flat panels for something that can get slightly deeper on a black screen, or can do slightly better with gradation, especially with all the work that has to go into them to keep them going for even 10 years. I see directview tubes dying left and right, most of them are around 10 years old, we have to let them go and hope to god oled makes it to the mainstream. It has potential that sed and crt never had, it can do everything they did while also being thin, drawing little power and being very cost effective once the production line gets rolling.
