[Tig] Toshiba/Canon SED display

Thanks to oktobor for supporting the TIG
Here is a update :
The 50 inch SED from C/T will be out in distribution in Q4 of 07, as a consumer unit.
I did work on the SED under contract to C/T starting with the 30 inch 720 unit back in
2004. I measured the unit at that time to be 15K:1 as a prototype.
The units shown at CES were 50 inch pre production units. Just about finial.The delay is
in building production lines.The first big order is going to the Olympics in China.
I am now on a team that is starting work with C/T on a pro version. It has taken a long
time and many meetings to convince them to do this. After they showed a unit at the Tech
Fair in Tokyo last year, the they claimed to be 100K:1 (yes, film neg) we know it can be
done! So I don't see a pro version out for at least 2 yrs. But that is OK. With a good
HDSDI to HDMI converter --all is well.
If you haven't seen it --- It is the Holy Grale.It is a CRT without a gun and better.
As we said at HPA - several speakers said it is the only light for us in the near future-
if C/T don't screw it up!
