That's unfortunate. I guess we can surmise that LCOS is too small of a niche product that Intel couldn't see recouping it's investment with.

Well with the gains that are supposedly being made in the LCD world I'm guessing companies are finding it cheaper to focus on the existing technologies rather than trying to re-invent the wheel in a market already filled with "new technologies" like Plasma. LCD, DLP.....


Maybe LcOS has the distinction of being just a little too late to the party????

One huge issue, that undoubtedly contributed to their withdrawl, was the slight problem of the LCoS chips melting under the glare from the necessary-wattage bulbs.


A friend of mine works there, though not in that dept, but spent time in their QA labs helping them. He said the picture looked great, right up until it failed* :(

It's being discussed in the over $3500 forum, which is probably a good place for it.
