Canon to launch innovative TV after Applied Nanotech drops appeal
Canon, the Japanese consumer electronics group, is clear to launch a new type of television set after winning a patent lawsuit that has delayed its progress for more than three years.
Nasdaq-listed Applied Nano-tech, which had sued the Japanese company for illegally sub-licensing its patents, told the Financial Times it had decided not to appeal to the US Supreme Court. "It would probably be a futile effort," said Douglas Baker, Applied Nanotech's chief financial officer.
Canon can now press ahead with television sets based on surface-conduction electron-emitter displays, or SED. Such TVs can produce the wide viewing angle and deep colours of a traditional cathode-ray TV set but are as thin as a liquid-crystal or plasma display.
