Laser Television - Discussions

One of my friends mentioned about Laser Televisions and I checked on Wikipedia.

I guess it would be interesting to discuss the Laser Televisions here on CE. So, anyone wants to discuss the technical side of Laser Television? 😀

Here's what Wikipedia says about Laser Television: -

  • be half the weight and cost of Plasma or LCD displays
  • require around 25% of the power required by Plasma or LCD displays
  • be very thin like Plasma and LCD displays are today
  • have a very wide colour #-Link-Snipped-#
  • have a 50,000 hour life
  • maintain full power output for the lifespan of the laser, resulting in a picture that doesn't progressively degrade over time, such as with plasma and LCD technology

    It seems like there is no disadvantage of this technology...
    But is it economical??

    Yes, I think so. This system is based on three lasers of three color... yes, the same story, like a laser color printer, or the cathodic tube, or the three tubes projector, but, this time, lasers are more efficient, smaller in size. I don't know for shure, but it appears to be semiconductor lasers...No, special screen is needed, but a white one. Like the one used for slide shows.The three laser beams are amplitude modulated and mirror deflected as usual in laser printers.Isn't that really interesting?

    Laser... Awesome.. *drools*

    If the safety aspect is there, it should catch on quite quick!

    It was announced for december 2007 in Europe, but I aven't seen it yet. It must be becouse off retailer have to sell all their LCD/plasma before starting on selling this novelty.
