Toshiba 's 40-inch+ screens going SED

SED panel

Even though Sony did (then didn't, actually) get out out the plasma TV biz, it looks like Toshiba (in concert with Canon Japan) intends to move their all 40-inch+ displays to SED (Surface-Conduction Electron-emitter Display) technology exclusively, which they claim provides better color, sharper images, and faster response than both plasma and LCDs (we told you about this before). We can probably estimate that if this goes well, they'll be out of the business of plasma displays entirely soon enough, but we'll all have to wait and see how this pans out.
