Canon plans to appeal SED decision Canon Inc. is to appeal an "expected" court decision in the United States regarding technology used in surface-conduction electron-emitter displays (SED). The company expects the ruling in the first trial to go against it after the court judged earlier this year that a licensing deal stuck with Nano-Proprietary in 1999 did not extend to Canon's partner, Toshiba.
Tokyo-based Canon expects that ruling to come in late April, President Tsuneji Uchida said at a general shareholders meeting. SED displays tout brighter images and less power consumption than LCD and Plasma sets currently on the market. Canon had hoped to enter the $84 billion market for flat-panel TVs in partnership with Toshiba.
