Laser Projection for Consumer Use Lincoln NE

If you have seen a laser in a boardroom or movie theater, chances are that it was nothing more than a red dot coming from a pointer. But if proponents of laser projection have their way, the technology should start appearing in a variety of consumer and pro AV products in Lincoln.

IF YOU'VE seen a laser in a boardroom or movie theater, chances are that it was nothing more than a red dot coming from a pointer. But if proponents of laser projection have their way, the technology should start appearing in a variety of consumer and pro AV products.

“There are some very high-end things that are starting to be fielded now in the simulation market, but that's not the main focus of what this stuff is going to be,” says Chris Chinnock, president of Insight Media, a Norwalk, CT-based research firm that tracks the AV market. “The area that most people are interested in is consumer TV, and probably in rear projection before front projection.”

Case in point: In February 2006, Mitsubishi Electric showed off what it claims is the world's first rear-projection TV that uses a laser as its light source. The display features conventional Digital Light Processing (DLP) microdisplay technology, but the light is provided by a trio of red, green, and blue lasers. The company says that the images are 1.8 times more colorful than those of an LCD display. Mitsubishi plans to begin producing commercial versions of the TV by 2008.

Although laser projection is likely to debut on the consumer side, it may not be long before it shows up in pro AV.
