Paper Abstract

The envelope of the new Flatscreen® Gas-Electron-Phosphor (GEP) display may be a glass box or a new compliant-back construction. In either case, internal spacers withstand the atmospheric pressure to make possibe the use of thin, light glass for the facfplate. Display sizes well in excess of 4 ft will be feasible, at weights of about 6 lb/ft --much lower thah CRT weights. Circuitry for the new panel is ecnomical and can readily be arranged so that the Flatscreen® panel is driven like a CRT. The circuitry can be located more than 10 feet away from the panel.
