Mitsubishi starts selling LaserVue sets.
 
IRVINE, Calif. — October 28, 2008 --- Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, Inc. today announced the beginning of the laser era and the immediate availability of the world’s first, laser-powered television. The Mitsubishi LaserVue™ 65” model is now being sold for $6,999 at select specialty retailers nationwide. After months of anticipation, many consumers nationally have already purchased LaserVue and have had the rare opportunity to experience the amazing breadth and depth of color that laser television offers. LaserVue has been introduced as the most energy efficient large-format, high-definition television available on the market today. LaserVue not only delivers two times the color1 of many of today’s HDTVs, but it also uses exponentially less power2 than LCD and plasma TVs.

“The consumer demand for LaserVue has simply exceeded our expectations and the product is a terrific example of Mitsubishi’s technology leadership within the home entertainment market. Bringing laser TV to market is a significant industry accomplishment and we’re very proud to be the only TV manufacturer to date that has delivered on the promise of a laser-driven TV,” said Frank DeMartin, vice president, marketing, at Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America. “With operating power at approximately 135W, LaserVue is environmentally friendly, consuming approximately one-third the power of today’s LCD TVs, and one-fourth of plasma TVs. Living in today’s green-conscious environment, consumers can enjoy this color-brilliant, ground-breaking home entertainment product while being mindful of energy consumption at the same time.”

LaserVue’s technology is unparalleled; laser beams provide an extensive range of rich, complex colors, along with truly distinct clarity and immersive depth of field. Precise and focused, the purity of laser light far surpasses current high-definition technologies. LaserVue has demonstrated a reproduction of color gamut in excess of 200 percent of BT.709, delivering two times the color of many of today’s HDTVs. Brightness has been demonstrated at approximately 500 nits. Additional features for LaserVue include Smooth 120Hz™, x.v. Color™ and 1080p with an Ultra Thin Frame.

LaserVue is also equipped with 3D-ready3 viewing capabilities, demonstrating Mitsubishi’s foray into bringing a true “Hollywood” entertainment experience to the consumer. At 10 inches thin, LaserVue TV has been designed for both floor stand and wall-mount applications and features a full stereo range of sound capabilities with integrated speakers.

“Consumers are now coming to equate LaserVue with the industry’s best performing high-definition television, and we are confident that HDTV enthusiasts everywhere will want to quickly get their hands on one,” continued DeMartin.

It wasn't completely ready in 2008 and their Laser TV set seemed to have a few bugs.Then later on problems with the production line.But are the sets really ready for the market now,and if so,what quantity will they be able to crank up each year.I guess the price is still around $7,000.

Does this mean that they will start mass production and lower the sale price.If it's such a great product,Mitsubishi should try to win the people over by making it more available and more affordable.Unless Mitsubishi moves butt,the buyers will keep buying LCD and PLASMA television because they buy what they see.I would like to see experts give their opinions about this Laser TV.A good review pointing both it's strenghts and weaknesses.Get this TV out of the closet.

If they do start the mass production and the price would be reasonable then its a win win situation for Mits.

Re: Mitsubishi starts selling LaserVue sets.
 
Does anyone have a worse reputation than Mitsubishi? There was a class action suit
against them by owners of their DLP/rear projector for short life of components.
When they were made in Lake Forest, CA (at the edge of the El Toro Marine Air Station)
they had a quality product. Parts came from Japan and Americans did the assembly.
With the passing of the Reagan conceived NAFTA, Mitsubishi moved production to Mexico
and sourced their parts from Mexican firms and the quality went down to zero.
Sony made their televisions in Rancho Bernardo (San Diego) then with NAFTA
they too moved production to Mexico and the problems began.

Anyone who buys a set from Mitsubishi MUST buy an extended warranty by BestBuy or whomever
they buy it from as THEY WILL NEED IT.

(yes I work in the CES industry)
