"Samsung though has developed a new technique to create high-definition CRT (cathode ray tube) sets which are a third thinner at the back end than conventional CRT sets. This also means that the sets are about a third of the price of plasma screens. The CRT HDTV is aimed at people who are nervous of spending so much on a technology, like plasma, that has been criticised for "screen burn" - when a mark from a static image is left etched in the screen. "People trust CRT technology and are comfortable with it - many are still scared of plasma or LCD because of screen burn. We are still educating the public though," said Samsung's Genevieve Cosen. The set is due out in June this year and was an innovation in engineering and design award winner at this year's show."
