Mitsubishi Laser TV at CES

Mitsubishi today revealed details about its laser TV technology following its debut at CES. Based on technology from Australian firm Arasor, the approach is said to produce far more accurate light than possible with either LCD, plasma, or rear projection techniques. Where an average TV can only display 40 percent or less of the visible spectrum, the beams from a laser TV can produce double the color and create a far more color-accurate image on the screen, Mitsubishi says. The precision also improves over other technologies and prevents color bleeding or other artifacts.

Laser TVs also have the side benefit of lower power consumption than any flat-panel model and can also generate a 3D effect relatively easily, according to the company. Mitsuibishi's current laser TV format is oriented towards larger sets and is on display at CES in a 65-inch model; no direct indications have been given as to when laser TVs will be on the market, though previous reports have pointed towards the end of 2008 and may see laser TVs priced below even DLP or other rear-projection sets at the same size.
