Canon launched $200 MIR program, 5D Mark II is on the list

The 65-inch Mitsubishi Laser TV got official back in 2008 and later rolled in production with shipping date announced in October.

It’s still a new and exciting technology, the expectation is high but the unit has long overdue and high in demand.

Details of the holdback were not disclosed but said the engineers are on their feet to ensure displays are back on production, at highest standards as soon as possible.
