iFire, a Canadian display technology company, is saying that its TDEL (thick-film dielectric electroluminescent technology) technology should be ready for market soon. The technology is supposed to create images comparable to LCD screens, but at a lower cost and with lower power consumption. The display technology uses phosphor dielectric film layers sandwiched between two layers of electrodes to produce images, in case that means anything to you. The company is focusing on a 34-inch model first, and they expect it to be released by Sanyo. While the contrast ratios and brightness leave something to be desired, cheap flat-panel TVs will be a welcome addition. That is, if the people at Sanyo don't see dollar signs all the way to Sears and end up charging LCD prices.
