New TV displays on the way.

From what I heard, Canon and Toshiba are working on new TV display technology that is supposed to be on display at NAB next week. It's called Surface Display Emission and Field Display Emission. I'm going to NAB for one day and hopefully I can take a look at them. Supposedly it's what will replace Plasma, LCD and DLP.

any way you can get some pictures or snapshots?

In reply to: New TV displays on the way.

can't really capture the picture quality with a camera (especially if its on your phone), but it'd be cool just to see the style of their new tv's.

toshiba's new dlp's look a LOT better cosmetically without the speakers bulging out on the side. picture quality is decent but the colors are not as good as the previous models (imho).

Time-Line

In reply to: SED, AND NOW FED

I will ask what the expected time-line is for consumer usage. I heard that the displays at NAB will be early versions of what will be truly manufactured. Of course as is typical, the new technology goes first to the Industry, then to consumers. I'll see what I can do about taking a picture. I'll be there on business with my boss, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to squeeze into a booth that my boss isn't there to see. I'll be there only on Monday.

Update on FED and SED TVs

In reply to: Time-Line

After visiting NAB, I was told by Samsung and Toshiba that the Field Emisson and Surface Emission Display technology is almost ready, but not ready enough to show anything. The answer I got was probably 2 years.

But, I can tell you this...We consumers have access to TVs that pale in comparison to what the high-end broadcast and industrial companies can get. I saw a 56" Toshiba LCD TV that is 3,840 X 2,160 resolution with 6.5 msec refresh rate! It has four DVI inputs so it can do a quad-split each having a display of 1920 X 1080. WOW! What a picture! And at the Panasonic booth, I saw their 103" Plasma TV that was native 1080p. Again...WOW! What a picture. I'm still drooling.
