The Novalux is a semiconductor laser. It has been shown in RPTVs since 2007 or so, see the Mitsubishi laser discussion we had recently. Mitsubishi using its own lasers, where Arasor has been trying get that business, demonstrating Mitsubishi RPTVs with its laser.
However this requires large output.
Wolfgang, this is the new cheaper model with chip lasers. Last year they said it would be cheaper than the existing one. Hard to be pressed to provide pricing guidelines, they indicated the system was 1.5 million USD, the beamer itself would be less than that figure, the new model be cheaper again, acording some of teh reports discussed here last year.
So, let's say this new 8K 5K lumens model is 1 million USD/Euro, that means it is fit for a few Hometheaters, for sure. As I jokingly said earlier, Jeremy could always apply for a new entry in the record books, make it the $7 million playstation system;-).
