As Laser TV inches closer to market, let’s take a moment to consider what we know. Mitsubishi, announcing at a press conference on April 4, 2008, will be selling a laser based TV under the brand name LaserVue. Initial models will be arriving at select dealers this summer and will go on sale by Fall of 2008 (3Q 2008).
Screen sizes and prices will be determined and announced at a later date. Mitsubishi’s LaserVue site has not been updated in several months, so hopefully new information will be posted in the coming months.
First Hand Review:
“The Mitsubishi LaserVue looked quite impressive to this reviewer. The colors were deep and rich with amazing reds and blacks as compared to competitive plasma and LCD 1080p panels. Contrast and clarity were among the best that this reviewer has seen in a long, long time. Surprisingly, it appeared that the depth of the LaserVue HDTVs appeared to be about 10-inches deep, and could easily be placed on the wall.” – Dennis Barker, Digital TV Designline
Laser TV is the next generation television display. Laser TVs employ a laser light engine as the light source – a compact trio of red, green, and blue lasers. Laser light is capable of reproducing up to 90% of the visible color spectrum, twice what the current HDTV market can offer. Laser TVs capitalize on the unparalleled qualities of laser light; which is capable of producing a brighter, sharper and more colorful image than current LCD and PDP models. Manufacturers are also claiming Laser TVs will cost less and use less energy than current technologies.

Mitsubishi officially announced today that its line of Laser TV, LaserVue, will be available in Q3 2008. We should be seeing the sets as early as this summer in select showrooms. Mitsubishi is billing Laser TV as the next generation HDTV, featuring up to twice the color range of conventional HDTV sets while consuming half the power of LCD and plasma models. LaserVue will also sport 3D capabilities with Real D technology.
Read an early review from New York Times Blog – “One immediate impact: with a laser light engine, colors don’t look so much as if they’re painted on the screen as if they’re shooting out from it. Colors are alive and vibrant in a way that mimics the brightness of neon light…”
