According to Reuters, Canon has halted any further development of SED displays for home use.
Canon’s inability to bring down production costs was stated as the main reason for stopping further SED TV work.
As any regular visitor here knows, the legal troubles of the past few years were probably also a major factor in crippling what could have been the best flat panel display available so far.
Canon may continue to develop the technology for image diagnostic and other commercial uses but we won’t see a 50″ SED in stores in the future.
