Laser, more TV tech at CES

Next month's Consumer Electronics Show, scheduled for January 7th to the 10th, may see the arrival of some long-awaited TV technologies, according to reports. Laser sets -- which are said to be lighter, less power-intensive and cover 90 percent of the visible color spectrum -- should finally make their public debut, as Mitsubishi has announced a formal unveiling. Models from Samsung and Mitsubishi were originally supposed to premiere by the end of 2007, but unspecified delays pushed the date forward.

Unannounced (publicly) for CES so far are displays of newer, bigger OLED sets, or any commercial SED models, which have encountered a number of legal and technical obstacles. LCD continues to be the dominant TV format, and is said to be increasingly encroaching on specifications once held only by expensive plasma TVs. Pioneer, however, continues to back plasma, and may be showing new Kuro displays at CES, or at least its most recent ones. These are promised to have some of the darkest blacks and widest color gamuts on plasmas to date. [via Yahoo]
