100,000:1 contrast ratio through the use of "local dimming" LEDs -- a process whereby the backlighting is effectively shut off in dark areas to generate true black. Samsung plans to include these local dimming LEDs in their LCD TVs shipping this year. Great... prices and dates now please?
Press release, January 12; Emily Chuang, DigiTimes.com [Friday 12 January 2007]
Canon and Toshiba today announced an agreement by which Canon will purchase all of Toshiba's outstanding shares of SED, which was jointly established by both companies. On completion of the purchase, SED will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon, effective January 29, 2007.
The decision was reached following discussions between Canon and Toshiba based on the assumption of prolonged litigation pending against Canon in the United States with respect to SED (Surface-conduction Electron-emitter Display) technology, the companies explained.
As a result of the discussions, it was decided that Canon will carry out the SED panel business independently in order to facilitate the earliest possible launch of a commercial SED television business. SED TVs are to be introduced in Japan in the fourth quarter of 2007 as originally scheduled, although Canon will reassess its future mass-production plans for SED panels.
Mr Kazunori Fukuma, the current president of SED, appointed from Toshiba, will resign from Toshiba, after which he will be hired by Canon and continue to serve as SED president. Also, in accordance with the terms of a new agreement to be entered into between SED and Toshiba, plans call for Toshiba engineers on loan to SED, to continue their assignments for the transition period during which Canon will establish the SED panel business independently.

Incidentally, Brightside was bought by Dolby so this tech is now known as Dolby Contrast
