Cannon, Toshiba postpone SED TV launch again

Keywords:SED TVs? Canon-Toshiba JV? FED technology?

Canon Inc. announced it has decided to postpone the launch of surface-conduction electron-emitter display (SED) TVs, which it had planned to roll out Q4 2007 with then joint-venture partner Toshiba Corp..

The digital camera maker disclosed that reasons for the delay include the prolonged litigation with Nano-Proprietary and ongoing efforts to establish a mass production technology aimed to further reduce costs.

Canon and Toshiba announced early this year the latter's exit from their joint manufacturing companySED Inc.in order to settle the dispute with Nano-Proprietary. The U.S. company owns field-emission display (FED) patents used in SED displays, which Canon licensed in 1999. Nano-Proprietary limited the use of the FED technology to Canon subsidiaries, and sued in 2004 claiming that SED Inc. was not a subsidiary but was almost evenly owned by both Canon and Toshiba.

Canon is yet to announce a new launch schedule for the SED TVs.
