I'm glad I've stayed behind the television technology curve and haven't spent thousands of dollars on a large LCD or plasma TV. I've considered buying an HD projector, but my 1995 Hitachi projection television is still working just fine... and hopefully I'll be able to hold out till I can buy a laser tv next year!
IT'S being hailed by its developers as the next revolution in visual technology - a laser television that will make plasma screens obsolete.
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. ...
With a worldwide launch date scheduled for Christmas 2007, under recognisable brands like Mitsubishi and Samsung, Novalux chief executive Jean-Michel Pelaprat is so bold as to predict the death of plasma.
â€œIf you look at any screen today, the colour content is roughly about 30-35 per cent of what the eye can see,â€ he said.
â€œBut for the very first time with a laser TV we'll be able to see 90 per cent of what the eye can see.
â€œAll of a sudden what you see is a lifelike image on display.â€
