Default New type of HDTV Flat Panel Tech

I remeber reading an article few weeks ago about a company that is goin to start making new type of flat panel hdtv in 2007. Supposedly it cost them only 300$ to manufacture a 37in version, and supposed to have better contrast ratio then lcd and more durable.........unfortunately i lost the link to the companys website and cant remeber it.....please say someone here knows what im talking about. Thanks.

Without a link... it's anyone's guess. $300 for a 37" panel isn't that cheap... put it into a plastic box, electronics and shipping and you have something at market prices. (not to mention marketing, packaging and support).

I'd like to see this technology get bigger & better for the HT market.

Samsung is kinda late to the party. NEC has been selling those wide color gamut LCDs for awhile now and they cost like $6K for a 21".

I say bring on the HDR displays based on the Brightside tech.

I didn't look at all the details of the iFire website, but the traditional problem with EL displays is longevity. They tend to get non-uniformly dim over relatively short periods of time. I had an EL instrument cluster/trip computer in one of my cars and it started dimming around the edges after only 3 years. I've seen similar problems with EL backlights on LCD's as well.

The Samsung wide color gamut translates into $600, still a bit pricey for a 19" but for what it offers... a 30" might be 4x as much, still in the ball park of what we're paying now. People who have seen this monitor claim it's unreal, almost to touch.

Re: thick dielectric electroluminescent (TDEL) technology, iFire™
I've heard of this a bit... but it looks like they're shopping for investors first... they may have a promising unit in the lab, but so far it's all a pony show.

IMLED - Individually Modulated LED Backlight of the HDR displays based on the Brightside tech is the way to go IMHO.. We'll just have to see if the big panel makers catch on. Once this doable technology hits the ground, sales will start to run and plasma will die overnight.

Yes should be interesting to see how everything develops. And I read on the IMLED and that does look very promising. Cant wait to see these when they come out.

Here is a comparison of a direct view LCD vs a HDR display. The blooming effect is from the camera btw.







I love this display technology that's why I want at least one of the big companies to release displays using this tech.

BrightSide has been discovered by the Slashdot community... hopefully some of the big boys will notice and bring the price down.
