Nano-Proprietary, Inc has announced that its subsidiary Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) has teamed with prominent Japanese display component manufacturers to produce a prototype of a 25 inch diagonal full color carbon nanotube (CNT) TV.
Recent developments in ANI’s CNT laboratories have allowed this team to be put together to demonstrate that CNT TVs in field emission mode have progressed enough to be manufactured in high volumes. Component manufacturers who have joined the team include experts in CNT manufacturing, printing techniques, plasma and CRT components, fine dispensing technologies, vacuum sealing equipment and glass substrates. For competitive reasons the team member names remain confidential.
The project begins on the 1st of October 2003 with a target of producing a 25-inch full color CNT TV by late spring of 2004 with a display resolution comparable to a 60 inch or larger HDTV display.
