Canon's Sharp SED Display Technology Gets Scrapped

Nowadays, the best-Known display technology is, undoubtedly, LCD (liquid crystal display) Mostly Because it is the most widely available and affordable. There are, of course, other technologies with benefits in terms of image clarity, sharpness and lifetime, Standard and Poor 'OLED and AMOLED. Also SED was seen as a promising candidate back in 1999, but it appears That Canon's plans to turn it into a viable alternative to LCDs have met with failure.

SED stands for surface-conduction electron-emitter display. This technology enabled the creation of panels with a contrast ratio of 100,000:1 while being as thin as plasma or LCD screens. Believing in the potential of this type of display, Canon and Toshiba joined forced in 2004, hoping they want would be Able to Mass-Produce it in a timely fashion. Despite on their plans, they want Were faced with two factors "That ultimately led to the SED's Demise.

That one of the issues plagued the duo's efforts was the lawsuit filed by Applied Nano Tech, a U.S. company. This lawsuit significantly impacted upon the research and development efforts, though the final straw was a completely Different impediment entirely. What signed the death sentence was the ultimate inability of either company to come up with a cost-effective means to Mass Produce SED displays, or at least make cheap Them Enough for the extra cost to be offset by the benefits in power efficiency and image quality . This situation persists even now, after the Canon turned the joint venture into a wholly Owned units.

It was the Nikkei That first got wind of this decision on Canon's part, though not all news is completely dire. While it is quite clear That consumer-oriented, or even a business-aimed monitors or HDTVs of any size will of never make it to market, the concept May still empower certain sorts of commercial products, like image diagnostic equipment.
