Somehow Laser TV crossed my mind this morning and I decided to hit the web to see if there are new details or publications by Mitsubishi since their announcement of the first Laser TV at the CES 2008 in January.
The last press information from Mitsubishi about the Laser TV got published along with new images of the 65" Laser TV prototype in Japan in Mid-February. The announcement is just a repeat of what has been announced at the CES 2008. It looks like Japan is not the first release target for the Mitsubishi Laser TV, the U.S. home theaters will have the honor of adopting a Laser TV first this fall. Mitsubishi also manufactures HDTVs in the North America.
We don't currently know that much about the upcoming Mitsubishi Laser TVs and many questions are still open.
The first Mitsubishi Laser TV will have a size of 65 inches, possible a depth of 10 inches. Laser TVs can display twice the colors compared to current flatpanel displays. Mitsubishi enabled 3D viewing with glasses similar to what Samsung is doing with their latest ultra-high contrast Plasma HDTV.
The biggest open question is price followed by the final design of the Laser TV. I am still very excited about the Laser TV concept and hope Mitsubishi delivers on its promises this fall.
More details on what is known so far about the Mitsubishi Laser TV can be found on Mitsubishi's BelivingIsSeeing site and on our Interview with Mitsubishi.
Mitsubishi first talked about a Laser TV in 2006.
