Last week the Society for Information Display (SID) held its annual conference and exhibition in San Francisco. Youll find photos of many of its highlights in this weeks photo essay.
There was one overriding phenomenon: LCDs rule. Though the biggest and most spectacular display was a monster plasma from Samsung, it was all too apparent that LCDs are about to overrun every other technology in this space.

But the bulk of the display market is headed into the LCD camp. And you connoisseurs of emerging technologies should note that the much-ballyhooed SED (surface-conduction electron-emitter display) was nowhere to be seen.
Here are the pictures of the more interesting products.
