Arasor International Ltd., a company soon to list on the Australian stock exchange, has claimed it has developed an optical integrated circuit that is key to the production of a laser television that could replace plasma and LCD televisions in the consumer market.
According to reports referenced on its website Arasor’s television technology offers double the color gamut and clarity at half the cost and a quarter of the power consumption of comparable large LCD and plasma televisions.
A demonstration of a Mitsubishi-manufactured prototype laser display was given Tuesday (Oct. 10) prior to Arasor’s expected initial public offering of stock next week. The laser television is not expected to come to market in 2006 but could be ready in time for the 2007 holiday buying season
the key to the story is here:
And despite Arasor’s recent demonstration it is not clear exactly how the display works and what part of the engineering has been done by Arasor (Mountain View, Calif.), what part by Novalux (Sunnyvale, Calif.) and what part by Mitsubishi. No references could be found to how red, green and blue lasers are made to raster scan.
Anything is possible, but this seems sketchy for now.
