    By mid-next year Toshiba and Cannon will be releasing a new technology, call the Surface-conduction Electron-emitter Display (SED), which is suppose to offer the supreme picture quality of a CRT and the form factor of an LCD screen all in one unit. I also read that the prototypes consume less power than Plasma screens. What do yall think?

    can't say anything before seeing it. Surely seems great BUT the technologies under the monoploy of a specific brand generally fail (remember Sony releasing numerous failing technologies and formats MICROMV, DAT, ATRAC being only a few examples ) So if this SED technology is going to be exclusively used by Toshiba and Canon, I don't expect it to be successful. However if these companies are going to share the technology with others and make SED a common technology just like LCD or plasma, then there is a chance of success. OLED is also a very promising technology and may have a price advantage at the same quality and size.

    Why wouldn't you license the tech to other people? After the success of DLP by TI why would anyone keep a technology to themselves. Sony is the company that is making things difficult. They are currently pursuing a tech called Field emission display (FED) that is oddly similar to SED (even in initials... lol).

    Anyway, Toshiba and Canon came together to start SED inc. SED inc. can choose to do what it wants to do. I am also excited about OLED. I don't think OLED is being developed to take the big screen market from Plasma and (later) SED displays but rather is being looked at as a replacement for the aging LCD technology. Sizes 40" and under mostly.
