World’s 1st laser-based rear projection TV

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:16 pm

Mitsubishi Electric Corp said Wednesday it has developed what it says is the world’s first rear projection television that uses a laser as its light source instead of a mercury lamp as with current rear projection TVs.

The laser-based rear projection TV provides a higher picture quality than liquid crystal display and plasma display panel televisions, according to the home electronics equipment maker. Light from a semiconductor laser is divided into red, blue and green, making it possible to represent images with a color variety 1.8 times greater than that of LCD TVs and thereby improving image quality.
