Any mention of Mitsubishi's Next-Gen Laser HDTV at CES 2007?

Does anyone know if Mitsubishi was talking about there next-gen Laser DLP technology at CES 2007? I read several articles, including an article by David Katzmaier (CNET), that Mitsubishi would likely show-off a pre-production version of this technology at CES.

I am very interested in knowing more about this technology and more specific, when will it be available to consumers.

Here is the link to David Katzmaier's article:

Saw it at CES?

Hi Stew,

Great! I have a few questions:

Did you see it at CES?

Was it a pre-production unit or just a prototype?

What size screen was it and how deep was the overall cabinet?

I read that the bezel on these sets would be very, very small. Did you take notice if that was the case?

I was just crusing thru the store but did not really check it out. just looked at the label on front. I own a 72" d.l.p. set with lamp ha ha and the picture looked about the same as my t.v. In closing when I bought my Toshiba it was state of the art one year ago now its labeled as junk with the fans, wheels and lamp. but so far looking at all the new technology I cant see any improvement in picture quality, But prices are at a point even homeless folks can afford one. and the funny part now people want and crave the cheapest crap on the market.WEhy buy offbrand junk when for a few bucks more you can buy top brand hi-quality t.v.s I saw the walmart specials and almost went blind ha ha steweee

I think we are talking about different HDTV's

I was referring to the new Laser-Based DLP technology that is not yet available to the public. If you click on the link to David Katzmaier's article above you can read about the technology.

So I'm not sure what HDTV you saw at the Big Box store but it must be something else.

Mitsubishi is talking like they are close to releasing a Laser-Based DLP set by the end of this year but there is nothing official that I can find on the web.

If anyone else has new information to add to this thread, please do so.

No, I am not referring to LED based DLP's

David Katzmaier wrote an article about Laser based HDTV's last April:

This technology would replace the mercury lamp and use 3 seperate lasers to produce light for the DLP chip.

This was all the talk in the spring of 2006.
