Hi guys.


Some Marquee's come with P43 phosphor on green, for 3D applications

and so on, but is there any visual difference, and is the tube-life and

wear the same?


I'm not planning on using my maybe-soon-to-come Marquee 8500 Ultra

on 3D, could this be a drawback in ANY way?


Thanks,


Nicholas

I think I remember that P43 phosphor is only used on green...am I right?

That's correct. P43 short persistence green.


I asked the guys at VDC about that, and they said that in most cases, you'd never even notice the difference between the P43 green phosphor and the standard green phosphor. As far as home theater is concerned, there is essentially no difference at all.


A friend of mine, years ago, had a Runco projector (don't ask me which one as I'd have no idea) that had a LONG persistence green phosphor. It was kind of irritating, because moving objects left green trails.

Right, the P43 phosphor is green only.


I've got a pair of eight inch units with some pretty high hours on the crt odometers, and neither shows any evidence of any kind of image burn. Of course, tube life all depends on how they are used (or abused). I've A/B compared the P43 green phosphor with regular green crt's, and I can't tell the difference.


I doubt that you will see any difference.
