SED will rock but will also be very pricey. I've been looking at this technology for a while now and am pretty much convinced that I will own one of these and a 40-42" LCD. You just can't beat the price/image quality this is set to offer.

I havent looked anything up yet but I am wondering about the price. Are they saying it will be cheaper than a plasma or cheaper based on a price to quality ratio?

Like a plasma maybe $2000 for half the quality of the new set but the new set would be $3000 for double the quality?

May sound silly but that what I am really wondering

My reading is this they are saying manufacturing cost will be less so teh actual MSRP will also be less for a higher quality panel that is how I read it.

Here is the article!

Laser TV unveiledBy Adam Bennett

Article from: AAPFont size: + -

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.

Manufacturing company Arasor produces the unique optoelectronic chip central to the laser projection device being developed by Silicon Valley-based Novalux, which is being used by a number of television manufacturers.

And displayed beside a conventional 50 inch plasma TV this afternoon, the Mitsubishi-built prototype does appear brighter and clearer than its “older” rival.

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.

“If you look at any screen today, the colour content is roughly about 30-35 per cent of what the eye can see,” he said.

“But for the very first time with a laser TV we'll be able to see 90 per cent of what the eye can see.

“All of a sudden what you see is a lifelike image on display.”

Combine that with energy efficiency, price advantage and the fact that the laser TVs will be half the weight and depth of plasma TVS, and Mr Pelaprat says “plasma is now something of the past”.

Mr Pelaprat predicted LCD TVs would come to dominate the market below 40 inches, and laser television the market above that screen size, displacing plasma.

The optoelectronic chip-laser technology won't be confined to TVs.

The technology is also being trialled in mobile phones, where it will be used to project images onto any surface, and in home theatres and cinemas.

The unveiling of the laser TV prototype was held on the eve of Arasor's public float on the Australian Stock Exchange next week.

Here we go again.... the hype machine starts. We can all throw out are awesome plasmas and LCDs for the latest and greatest fad.

Its just another proprietary technology that will be late, overpriced , and really no better than whats already out there. Their claims of seeing only 30% of color is rather odd.... I seem to see all kinds of colors on my Sharp LCD. Wonder what they're talking about?

Just a bunch of numbers and claims.... a few consumers will get sucked in but I'll just suffer with my LCD. You better make sure that this SED thing is fully supported and all that.

Remember the Sony Betamax? Great technology that almost noone had access to.

This has nothing to do with SED TV....This is Hitachi and Samsung backed. It is supposed to hit Christmas 2007. I won't shoot them down, because plasma shot down LCD and I like the LCD better. I don't mind waiting and seeing what the have going, because I don't like the blur during fast motion on the LCD's

Like s2mikey said, this tech is most likely to be very overpriced, and released much later than expected. If it is ever released and available to the general public at a decent price a few years down the road, i'm definately interested in checking it out.

My bad, I didnt mean SED, I meant Laser or whatever it is.

Fast motion blur shouldnt happen on LCDs unless its a crappy brand or the signal is bad. Just my experience.

Sony Betamax? Laser TV's may be hype but people said the same thing when DVD's were first discussed. Not to mention cell phones, personal computers, satellite TV, Digital cameras, HD broadcasts. Now we take for granted thin displays hanging on walls, 70" wide screen's in our homes and picture phones. Laser displays may just be the natural progression of display technology. Lets face it, these guys don't usually just toss their money around. If they build it we will come, especially if theres a profit to be had.

I have seen them all and during a basketball game or football you see motion blur....I have viewed Sony, Samsung, Toshiba and Sharp. In all your readings it tells you that LCDs blur..or even a boxing match.
