SED Displays further delayed by lawsuits

Posted on Friday, January 05 2007 @ 12:11:15 CET by

A U.S. company sued Canon, possibly further delaying the launch of SED displays:
The televisions are based on SED (surface-conduction electron-emitter display) technology, which is a flat-panel display said to offer richer colors, faster response, and generally better picture quality than both LCD and PDP technologies. Canon and Toshiba have been promising SED-based televisions for some time, but the launch of the products has been delayed because of problems perfecting the technology. Current plans call for a limited launch in 2007 and wider availability in 2008.

At stake is whether the production joint venture, a company called SED Inc., is a Canon subsidiary. Canon owns 50 percent of the company plus one share, while Toshiba holds the remainder. Because it holds the extra share, Canon believes the company is a subsidiary.

The question is important because part of the SED technology being used has been licensed to Canon by Nano Proprietary of Austin, Texas. Nano Proprietary filed a lawsuit against Canon in Texas in 2005 asserting that SED Inc. isn't a Canon subsidiary because, it argued, Toshiba still has decision-making power over the joint company.

Reliability is an issue with these when individual emitters fail, killing the set. Clearly they hyped this a lot, but it is also a lot harder to manufacture than they were letting on, and I'd wager they've known for several years that each predicted "release date" was never going to come true.

They get here when they get here, but by the time they do, other technologies are likely to be as good or better.
