Soon-to-be-listed Australian company Arasor International and its US partner Novalux unveiled what they claimed to be the world's first laser television in Sydney today, with a pitch that it would be half the price, twice as good, and use a quarter of the electricity of conventional plasma and LCD TVs.
And displayed beside a conventional 50 inch plasma TV this afternoon, the Mitsubishi-built prototype does appear brighter and clearer than its "older" rival. "If you look at any screen today, the colour content is roughly about 30-35 per cent of what the eye can see, [...] but with a laser TV we'll be able to see 90 per cent of what the eye can see."
This looks really cool, and the tech seems very viable. I hope it succeeds in the marketplace.
