CRT: CRT stands for cathode ray tube. It is the technology used in traditional computer monitors and televisions. The image on a CRT display is created by firing electrons from the back of the tube to phosphors located towards the front of the display. Once the electrons hit the phosphors, they light up and are projected on the screen. The color shown on the screen is produced by a blend of red, blue, and green light, often referred to as RGB.
