A CRT (cathode ray tube) monitor is one of the two basic types of computer monitors. The CRT monitor is the older, larger, and heavier version of the LCD monitors that we see today. A CRT monitor is a bowl-shaped screen made of a glass envelope containing an electron gun and a fluorescent screen that emits light when the gun releases electrons. The electron beam is then magnetically deflected, focused, and modulated in a way to form a image.
