Default SED : Much Better Than Plasma

SED ( surface-conductance electron-emitter display ) from Toshiba and Canon was shown at consumer electronic shows in Japan and Las Vegas > it will be in the stores in 2006, and according to every reviewer who saw it , they say it blows away plasma in every respect.

Plasmas are just now getting into a price range where many people would buy them, but , I am going to wait for the SED tv for fear plasma may be obsolete in a year or two > a lot of money to waste.

Check it out > type in SED and search and you will find reviews.

I am sure the news of this technology is being somewhat supressed by plasma retailers and manufacturers because they want to keep you spending your money.

So > hold off >save your money> don't buy that plasma until you see the SED. If everyone did this you could bet that plasma prices would drop dramatically.

Please spread the word. I don't know about you, but I am getting tired of this electronic game of spending money continually. I want the best product with every feature in it from the get go and a technology that will not change for a long time.
But of course you know, that is not what the manufacturers want.

HDTV technology is constantly changing and evolving. "The best product with every feature in it" will only last a short time until a new and improved product is developed. It's the way it is and always will be, it's called progress.

I did exactly the opposite. Knowing full well that SED is the future of HDTV, I went ahead and purchased myself an reasonably priced plasma to get me by in the mean time. It's going to take a couple of years before the SED prices come down to reasonable levels.

So I have my 50" 720p Panny for today and in 2008 I'll move it up to the bedroom and pick up that 65" 1080p SED TV for the living room.

By then, there may even be 1080p content.

I did something similar. I bought a 480p plasma EDTV to tide me over until better 1080p/SED tvs are available.

old news. check out the links i posted in another thread. check out the last link for the most info. make sure to check it good cause there are video demos of the tv in use.

this tv will accept 1080p. the demo model was not 1080p but toshiba has already announced the tv will be 1080p. toshiba also admitted that a few other specs on the demo were not up to where the final model will be. if every reviewer that has seen this tv has said they cant believe how good this tv looks when its running at 720p imagine when its running at 1080p. also this tv may not hit the U.S. for a long time. there is a lawsuit out. from what i read toshiba and cannon stole the technology from another much smaller company. here is some links on sed. most of us have probally seen them already though.

Amen brother. There is always something new 'just around the corner'. I am too old to wait for something 'a little bit better' to come along. I will be dead in my grave while still watching my B&W Curtis Mathis (wheeoow - what a sharp picture!!) if I sit on every promise of "the best is yet to come".

But on the other hand - where can I find one of them Holograph sets?

Default SED-Sample Pics

The guy was right when he said the sample pics don't do the SED demo units justice. At least I HOPE he was right, because the pic below is waaaaay too white on the model's face. Most if not all detail blown out. Her face is much too miky white. Is she an American geisha?

The blown out face is just the result of taking a picture of a bright light source in a dark room. Her face is overexposed since it's very bright compared to the ambient light.

Try taking a picture of your set with the lights off to observe the same effect.

Default Sed Release Delayed Until Late 2007

Bummer. Got this from Yahoo news.

Toshiba, Canon delay next-generation SED TV's release till 2007's 4Q
(Kyodo) _ Toshiba Corp. and Canon Inc. jointly said Wednesday their alliance will delay the release of a next-generation high quality-image TV, known as surface-conduction electron-emitter display television, or SED TV, until next year's October-December period from its originally planned release time of this spring.
TV maker Toshiba and camera manufacturer Canon, strong in the high-tech industry but nonetheless a novice in the TV field, will now "launch SED TVs in the fourth quarter of calendar year 2007," the two said in a statement.

The SED TVs, which they say will provide image quality comparable to that of cathode-ray tube TVs despite their ultra-thin display panel, will offer "excellent performance characteristics," according to the two.

A Toshiba spokesman said the two want to develop lower-cost "production methods" for the high-definition image TV before starting its mass-manufacturing.

The TV uses a large number of super-miniature electron emitters which jointly act as a single electron gun in cathode-ray tube TVs.

SED TVs use the same number of such emitters -- put side by side on a glass substrate -- as that of luminescent pixels lined up on another glass substrate.

The distance between the two substrates is only "a few millimeters," the spokesman said, adding the electrons shot by the emitters collide with the pixels to make them emit color rays.

The two claimed they "consider the launch of SED TVs to be a major industry milestone, a once-in-50-years historical turning point for the TV industry, comparable to the initial introduction of CRT television."

The duo also said they "see the popularity of the 2008 Beijing Olympics as an opportunity to strongly promote SED TVs."

That really IS a bummer for many. I guess I'm glad I didn't wait - my SXRD should last until the SEDs are well into the market. I still predict that SED will blow all other technologies out of the water and be THE technology for future large sets.

That really does suck! It's common for a manufacturer to miss a stated release date by a few weeks or even a few months, but 16 months is pretty rare, especially when multiple operating prototypes have been shown. WTF happened ?
