Sony announces 60" Field Emission Display (FED) TV
Sony set the focus not only on OLED. The Sony company Field emission Technologies want to mass produce FED-TVs as soon as possible.

In an Interview with techradar a Sony spokesman says:
"We are aware that Field Emission Technologies is in negotiation with Pioneer regarding mass-production of field emission displays, however this does not have any implications for Sony's existing relationship with FET." FET is aiming to produce 10,000 26-inch FED panels each year at the plant in Kagoshima. These will be for medical and broadcasting use first, but 60-inch consumer televisions may follow soon after.

What is FED?
The nano-Spindt FED (Field Emission Display) is a kind of FED that reproduces images using an array of nanocone emitters to excite phosphors. Taking advantage of highly efficient self-emissive phosphors combined with a line-sequential impulse drive system, this display delivers the visual performance required of a next-generation flat panel display, including a wide viewing angle, lifelike color, outstanding contrast with true black reproduction, and no-blur display of quickly moving images.

Hi All,

I was recently in Japan with Sony and I can tell you that they are making a real commitment to OLED. I have a story on it at TweakTV at this link:

Interesting report on Sony's XBR8's. Sony's use of locally dimmable LED backlighting in the XBR8 series appears to be similar to the Dolby/SIM2 HDR "infinite contrast" prototype that was demonstrated earlier this year. Both use locally dimmable LED backlighting. See links:
