CRTs were once synonymous with television, but by 2014, even stronghold markets like India were fading, with local manufacturers switching to flat-panel displays. Despite all this, picture tube televisions continue to linger. You’ll find them in museums, arcades, video game tournaments, and the homes of dedicated fans. But as the CRT slips further into obsolescence, devotees are navigating a difficult transition between simply maintaining an aging device and preserving a piece of technological history.

Wow! This is a fantastic "last stand" / collection / museum of CRT Televisions. We have a Nam June Paik piece ("TV Cello") on display, currently. The exhibition team has to work hard to make older tech turn on. This also, obviously, is a preservation concern.
