I don't have the complete low down, but from what I've seen, they may be able to replace even the CRT broadcast monitors. Could be wrong though. Nonetheless, SEDs are perfect to replace any consumer display device.

The new SED displays are a hybrid CRT-LED technology. My understanding is that each liquid crystal acts as a CRT with a phosphorescent coating. The response time and luminescence is similar to a CRT. The prototypes at the Canon Expo were stunning, supported HD, and didn't exhibit any ghosting, or problems with viewing angles.

You mean go the way of the El-cassette and Betamax? <g>

Sony has had a habit of pushing oddball "standards" while ignoring market realities.

Also, a few years ago when my 1989-90 era XBR Trinitron suffered an apparent horizontal drive failure, I decided to see what was available to replace it. Sony still had XBRs, and they looked great, but they also had compromised and introduced a loss-leader Trinitron series. They had silvery screens, poor contrast and picture quality. I bought a Panasonic 32" set and never regretted it.

More bad news for Sony

Analysts generally were not impressed by the plan, saying it lacked vision and creativity. Instead of deciding on spin-offs or outlining a clearer way of piggybacking its electronics units with its entertainment arm, Sony's proposal sounded much like other plans to streamline the corporate structure to eliminate redundancies, they said.
