An interesting report concerning SED TV technology has come out of the NAB 2009 show last week. It seems that SED may come out as a professional monitor product, similar to what FET was planning with FED TV. Here’s Peter Putman’s take on it:
“I was asked on more than one occasion about the chances of Canon’s SED making a comeback, something I would not have bet money on after the Nano Technologies licensing debacle. However, a source within Canon told me at the show that the SED is still very much alive as a pro monitor technology. Indeed, a Canon SED engineer from Japan was quietly making the rounds in the Las Vegas Convention Center to scope out the competition.”
If SED is produced as a broadcast monitor there remains the possibility that a SED TV could be forthcoming when times are better.
