For years and years, television manufacturers complained about the problems surrounding the cathode ray tube design. Inherently bulky and fragile, CRT-based televisions were undeniably difficult to deal with, and no one felt this more keenly than those who manufactured them. Whether that meant slim profit margins that had no hope of ever growing or almost unimaginable logistics challenges, all looked forward to a day when the CRT would become extinct.

While some few specialists do still produce CRT displays, the LCD has clearly taken over the mainstream. With the ascendance of that technology have arrived a whole host of the expected improvements, from better margins for manufacturers and wholesalers to greatly simplified logistics arrangements. In fact, LCD technology has more or less revolutionized the entire industry, from the manufacturers who produce the new displays to the retailers who sell them.

That can be seen with a brief look at what has happened with many specialists at wholesale consumer electronics in Miami and surrounding areas. At Ambar Electronic Distributors, for example, a whole host of important changes have occurred as the CRT has been replaced by the LCD, with many of these developments being significantly transformative on their own account.

Warehouse space at Ambar Distributors devoted to televisions, for example, has been slimmed down significantly, even while the selection and quantity of models has leaped upward. Even if ever-larger screens are the rule in the age of the LCD, these devices are invariably slim and compact compared to the display area they afford. That means that companies like the Ambar Wholesale Consumer Electronic Distributor have been able to stock more and more inventory for their customers, while also cutting back on the space they use to do so.

Activity on the warehouse floor has taken on a thoroughly different feel, too. CRT televisions were incredibly heavy and delicate, meaning that simply moving an average-sized model was often a pretty involved undertaking. Instead of needing to take great pains in the course of simply rearranging inventory, though, today's warehouse workers can shuffle LCD displays around as needed.

When looking at the impact of the LCD on the industry, it is frequently the manufacturers that experts focus on. The reality of the matter, though, is that the shift from CRT displays to those based on LCD technology has had just as much of an impact elsewhere. Whether that means the wholesalers who are so critical to the television industry or the retailers who actually find homes for them, LCD displays have made a big difference to everyone.
