If this comment refers to the projectiondesign projector with separate lamp house module.
The light transport tube in that design is not fiberoptics, but some unique light transporting liquid."The Liquid Light Guide (LLG) connects the FR12 to the Remote Light Source. The LLG is filled with a pure water-based liquid which efficiently transmit light from the RLS to the FR12. The LLG is available in three installation-ready configurations 10, 20 and 30 metre in length, which means that the FR12 projection head can be located well away from the RLS isolating the image from the heat and fan noise."

Direct scanning offers very limited resolution, check the resolution the small laser prico projectors are capable off delivering.
If we scan papers and press releaser, which companies have 4k lcos? The only ones I know of are Sony and JVC. The JVC 4K (and even 8K) panels are bigger than Sony´s of the same resolution.
I have only heard about the Sony and JVC Lcos.
The only projector Jannard has ever mentioned was an announcement from Epson in 2009 that they would have a 4K projector soon. This should have all new Epson designed panels which Epson called "Light reflection LCD". The projector has not yet materialised, and last I heard was that Epson did not succeed in making those panels, and gave up on them.
Strange if Red manages to buy Lcos from Sony or JVC, wouldn't they try to protect their business?
Any other manufacturer that use or have used Lcos in projectors or RPTV's?
How does Lcos or LCD survive high power light over time?
Projectiondesign was once asked if they looked into using Lcos, and the answer was that Lcos was not mechanical good enough for the type of use typical for many projectiondesign installs, like 24/7 runtimes.
