Sony Gets Serious With Another Next-Gen Display Tech: FED, Like CRT But Really Thinmatt buchanan7/05/08 5:30pmFiled to: SonyFedField emission displayHDTVTVsHDTVsOledVerizonbestmodo34EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkSony is probably OLED's most vocal prophet as the TV of the future. But according to Nikkei, they're hedging their bets and getting more serious with another next-gen display tech: field emission display, which is a lot like a good ol' cathode ray tube, except that it's super thin-it has all the benefits too, like deep blacks and zero motion blur. A "dream panel" says Nikkei. Plus, they're easier to build at large sizes than OLED TVs. Sony just agreed to take over a plant run by Pioneer to begin mass production of FED panels in late 2009 after holding the tech at arm's length for years.
