Brief: The bigger, the better

In late March, NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display of America Inc., Itasca, Ill., will release a 40-inch liquid crystal display, the NEC LCD4000. The large monitors will cost $5,800 and will be used for public displays, conference presentations and information kiosks, company officials said.

Sony Corp., Tokyo, is shipping what it claims to be the first backup tape that holds more than 1 terabyte of data. Using a new format called Super Advanced Intelligent Tape, or SAIT, the tape can store up to 1.3 terabytes of compressed data, more than twice the amount of current formats. SAIT drives will fit into existing 5.25 inch slots now used by tape drive libraries.
