I've always wondered...what's the contrast ratio for just your plain old direct view TV...you know, that old 27 inch Sony Trinitron the kids watch? And do you think digital pjs will ever come close? Thanks
A direct view CRT in controlled conditions and correctly calibrated can achieve an on/off contrast ratio of in excess of 10000:1 per a fairly recent SMPTE article. That is what allows CRT's to look so good when rendering low APL images.
