Canon's SED TV technology to be absent from CES

No SED TVs at CES 2007

The hotly-anticipated SED television technology will miss an expected appearance at the CES expo in January, its backers Canon and Toshiba announced today. No explanation was given for the absence, though a Toshiba spokeswoman said that neither business reasons nor technical flaws were responsible for the last-minute decision. Technology news portal CNET has spoken to sources that claim the absence is spurred on by attempts to settle a lawsuit between Canon and parts supplier Nano-Proprietary.

SED TVs, or surface-conduction electron-emitter displays, have already seen multiple delays as Canon and Toshiba have struggled to lower the price of the technology to that of more established LCDs and plasmas. The panels combine most of the color accuracy advantages of CRT sets with the slim shape of flat-panel systems.
