[Tig] Toshiba/Canon SED display

Thanks to oktobor for supporting the TIG
The new Canon/Toshiba SED was shown in prototype form at CES in January by
Canon and Toshiba. The models displayed were only 720p prototypes as the
1080p product was not ready for the show. Launch is scheduled for Mid 2006
in Japan with US distribution in late 2006. Toshiba and Canon have a huge
investment in this technology that show much promise. I spoke with a Canon
rep familiar with the project several weeks ago and he stated that the SED
display is intended to be a consumer level product and that there no current
plans to design and market the product as an HD capable production monitor.
"Has anyone on the list had any experience of Toshiba SED
I havn't seen a Plasma LCD that you could calibrate anywhere
near to a CRT - they all have contrast ratios that make them
unsuitable for print emulation they leak light, have a poor viewing
angle etc. They both seem very limited technologies.
I hope that SED lives upto the hype and is superior to
CRT - anyone tested one out yet?"
