Last week Toshiba and Canon were showing of their SED display technology at CES 2006 in Las Vegas.
The presented SED ((Surface-Conduction Electron-Emitter Display) displays were 32-inchers with 720p high definition support. Later this year the company will release 55-inch production models with 1080p support and Engadget writes the 720p displays already looked better than some 1080p displays they saw last week.
The demo highlighted features like brightness, contrast, depth and color. Probably the best way to describe something this visual is to think back to when you first saw HDTV. Remember the impact it had on you and the jump you saw in picture quality? That's what SED feels like; it's like making the jump from SDTV to HDTV all over again. It's that good
Toshiba says the SED display technology combines the response time and image quality of CRT displays with the thin profile of LCD display.
