Laser TV to Replace Plasma?

Just recently presented in Sydney, Australia is what appears to be the first "Laser TV." The developers of this technology, Arasor International and Novalux, claim that Laser TV is twice as good in quality than conventional plasma, and uses only a quarter of the electricity of conventional plasma and LCD TVs. Moreover, the Laser TV will also be lighter, thinner, and cheaper for consumers.

Novalux chief executive Jean-Michel Pelaprat boldly predicts the death of plasma saying "plasma is now something of the past." He believes LCD TVs would still dominate the 40-inch-and-below market, but that laser TV would completely replace plasma in the larger screen size market. The worldwide launch date is scheduled for Christmas of 2007 and will be released under more recognized brands such as Mitsubishi and Samsung.

Very bold claims from a rather unknown startup company in the midst of its fundraising. So lets not get too excited just yet.
