SED Displays Coming Soon

There's a new display technology on the horizon that's sure to sound the death knell for CRT displays: SED (Surface-conduction Electron-emitter Display).  Essentially, this technology marries the thin physical size of LCDs/PDPs with CRT-like technology and image quality (IQ).  I have been holding on to my CRT Monitor (an NEC MultiSync FE1250+ 22" display) because I love the fast response time and color reproduction.  I've purchased flat-panel displays for both my wife's and son's PCs.  Since I use my PC as a gaming platform, I haven't migrated yet.  However, I would love to have a monitor that takes up less desk space without the limitations of LCDs (ghosting, slow pixel response).  If SED technology is as good as the article implies, I may finally give up my big bulky CRT.

Read about SED from Canon's site.


Update: It looks like SED displays won't be out anytime soon. HD Beat reported today that SEDs won't be out until Fall 2007. So much for that.
