[Bob Zelin] "Please tell me WHAT CONSUMER CRT MONITORS are out there - what brand are they? And are they truly HD ?"

There are at least 4 brands in stores right now: Philips, RCA and another brand I don't remember, these cost about $800 currently. They all accept HD 720p and 1080i signals and display them to the best of their ability (which is not that great because of the CRT mask). There are also several Sony HD CRTs at far higher prices, these are significantly better.

It doesn't have to be 1920x1080p to be HD. The most common definition (in the U.S.) of what is HD today is in the ATSC standard, which apecifies 17 HD formats.

A lot of people today think 1920x1080 is the only HD format. They'll have a hard time finding any kind of display with native resolution for this, and neither the Panny Varicam or Sony HDCAM qualify.

Today we have to live with various shortcuts.

As soon as native 1920x1080 cameras and displays become widely available, you can be sure that there will immediately be people saying that anything less than 4K shouldn't be called HD...
