Mitsubishi has previewed the first-ever laser-powered TV dubbed LaserVue, expected to deliver a range of color never before seen in home entertainment.

First introduced at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, Mitsubishi claims the laser TV offers "a true dimension experience." Precise and focused, the purity of laser light surpasses current high-definition illumination technologies.

According to the company, today's HDTVs display less than 40-percent of the color spectrum that the eye can see. Now, reportedly, for the first-time ever, laser produces twice the color gamut of either LCD or plasma TVs. Laser beams provide the widest range of rich, complex, colors, along with the most clarity and depth of field. Laser TV, which has been under development for the past several years, is now ready for prime time and is expected to be delivered to dealers in Q3.

Mitsubishi LaserVue TVs are expected to provide the ultimate in picture quality and offer new and innovative features for an exemplary viewing experience. LaserVue TVs will employ the latest generation of Texas Instruments' DLP chipsets (either HD4 or HD5), and completely eliminate the color wheel and lamp found on regular DLP HDTVs. Cabinet size and depth will also be reduced over standard DLP models. In addition, the laser TVs are environmentally friendly, consuming approximately one-half the power of today's LCD TVs, and approximately one-third the power consumption of plasma TVs.

"Mitsubishi has created a new category in television with laser technology and now we are creating an exciting new brand, LaserVue, which we believe consumers come to equate with the industry's best performing televisions," said Frank DeMartin, VP of marketing, at Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America.
