Canon Technology -SED-

SED Displays - the new CRT:


"the SED (Surface-conduction Electron-emitter Display), jointly developed by Canon and Toshiba Corporation, is almost ready for practical application. Its greatest feature is the ability to produce vivid color images that surpass conventional types of display. Also, the SED delivers exceptional overall image quality—fast video-response performance, high contrast, high gradation levels—and low power consumption."


It's like a LCD sized CRT. They apparently demoed a 50" display at CES.
Using InkJet technology (for the electron emitters), it works like a CRT, but with flat electron emitters, rather than an electron gun that CRT uses, so it doesn't have the problems that CRT has at larger sizes.
