|Philips LMS, established in January 1999, has successfully developed an LCOS panel of 1,920Ã—1,080-pixel resolution, one of the worldâ€™s highest microdisplay resolutions thus far, and will supply the panel to Philips to begin volume production of a 55-inch, single-panel-based, rear-projection TV (RPTV) in the first quarter of next year, according to Wald J. Siskens, general manager of Philips LMS.|
|Philips LMS is also working with several Japanese and South Korean home electronics producers on the design-in of Philips LCOS-panel-based optical engines and expects to achieve some concrete results by the middle of next year.|
Siskens sees Taiwanese projector optical engine producers as excellent candidates for OEM partnership. Having devoted so much effort and expecting great potential for further cost reduction, he has no doubt that Philipsâ€™s single-panel-based LCOS RPTVs will have a significant impact on the global market next year.

Comparing apples to apples what would look better, a 720P display being fed 720P with no conversions or a 1080P display up-ressing a 720P or 1080i signal?
