After the HD vs Blu-Ray disc format wars were over, Blu-ray emerge the clear winner, however soon to be replaced by HVD, but that’s another story.
Anywho, it seems we have another technology war upon us, also in the entertainment industry, but this time televisions.
The war this time is between Laser TV (currently backed by Mitsubishi, releasing their new LaserVue TV) and (O)LED, who’s currently being backed by mainly by Samsung (LUXIA), but other companies are heading this route as well like Sony, LG, Philips to name a few.
I’m probably just making more out of this than is warranted. LED TV has been out for a while now, and Laser TV is only just coming out now (that’s not to say the laser tv technology hasn’t been around for a long time, it has). However, now that Mitsubishi is pushing their LaserVue laser TV’s, will that spark enough interest to win over supporters for this technology. Will it be able to break into a market already tapped by LED TV technology?
That’s yet to be seen. I think LED is definitely the future, so I don’t know where laser tv will find it’s place in a market against LED competition.
What do you think?
