During CES in January LG announced a new 100-inch class Laser TV. Rather than being a traditional TV set, this was a 100-inch diagonal screen and an ultra short throw projector combination. The projector needed only 22 inches of clearance from the wall to throw the 100-inch image.
LG has announced that the Laser TV will be available in April with an MSRP of $8999. That is certainly not cheap, but it is significantly cheaper than buying a LCD TV in that size range. The laser light source for the projector promises 25,000 hours of use before the light source has to be replaced.
The Laser TV features three HDMI inputs, two USB inputs, and optical audio output, and has Wi-Fi Direct. The projector also supports Intel Wireless Display technology. The projector supports full HD resolution images and promises to be bright enough to use in a brightly lit room.Filed Under: Technology News
