Sony's Going With FED TV's In 2009, Debuting A 60-Inch Super-Thin CRT-Like TV

fed00(2).jpgWhile most of us think OLED and "networked" home theater products when looking at the future of Sony, they have yet another television technology up their sleeve. The company recently took over an old Pioneer plant where they plan to start mass producing FED panels in 2009. What is FED? Short for field emission display, FED is a next-gen display technology that takes all of the benefits of cathode ray tube TV's and crunches them into a super-thin display. Think about the deep blacks and total lack of motion blur in old CRT TV's and you have a worthy competitor to LCD and plasma, and OLED since FED panels are much easier to make.

Sony plans to peddle the so-called "dream panels" to big broadcasters and the medical industry first and then slowly work their way into the mainstream consumer market with a 60-inch FED TV debut.
