Canon Exits RPTV, Will Focus On SED TV
Canon Inc. is the latest company to exit the rear-projection television market due to shrinking consumer demand. Way back in October 2005, Canon revealed a prototype 64-inch RPTV that was in development until the announcement by the company yesterday. They'll now try to enter the SED TV (surface-conduction electron-emitter display television) market, though they're already facing roadblocks as patent disputes have put commercialization of SED TV on hold, as has production technology issues.
Late last year, Sony also made an exit from RPTV citing lack of consumer demand.
