HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- April 7, 2006 -- Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, Inc. demonstrated the world's first laser-based, high-definition television at its 2006 National Dealer Line Show today. The Mitsubishi laser HDTV utilizes separate red, green and blue semiconductor lasers in an exclusive implementation together with Texas Instrument's 1080p DLP(R) HDTV chip. Mitsubishi's laser technology enables a completely new look in large screen television, both in high-performance picture reproduction and sleek, lightweight, and compact design.
Mitsubishi's laser HDTV offers a significant leap in color performance, both in intensity and in the range of colors which can be reproduced. This unique laser light source offers an expanded color depth and the widest color gamut possible from any display source, including LED-lighted displays. In fact, Mitsubishi laser-based HDTV technology produces a color gamut far exceeding (1.8 times greater) that of normal LCD televisions.
No specifications or pricing have been released yet. Mitsubishi is saying they expect to begin shipping in time for the 2007 holiday shopping season.
