Newfangled TVs from old-fashioned plant

Toshiba and Canon say they will produce surface-conduction electron emission display (SED) TVs out of a refurbished plant once used to produce old-fashioned tube TVs in Himeji. SED TVs and others similar in concept promise to be thinner than LCD TVs or plasmas but provide better picture clarity.

Early units are expected toward the end of next year, but volume production at Himeji won't start until 2007.
