We will still launch SED says Canon

March 14th, 2007 · No Comments

Canon chairman Fujio Mitarai says that his company still expects to launch TV products in Japan this autumn, hinting that an accommodation with US firm Nano-Proprietary is possible and that ongoing patent litigation can be avoided. However, he has issued a caveat that the manufacturing costs associated with the advanced display technology have to be improved. Mitarai says that SED production will not go ahead if the business can not be made profitable in three years.
In related news, Canon plans on spending 30 billion yen on a research facility, to be built in Kawasaki, specifically to develop advanced manufacturing technology. It believes the initiative will help it lower costs and improve profitability across a variety of product lines.
