LAS VEGAS— Toshiba America Consumer Products television marketing VP Scott Ramirez said at CES that the company has officially stepped away from rear-projection television based on Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) micro devices in favor of the popular and more-available Digital Light Processing (DLP) chips from Texas Instruments.




I'd be interested in thoughts on why - given Sony's move toward LCOS and the promise of the technology. Is it heat and longevity?

Bad chips and an inability to get more of them is my guess :). It remains to be seen if a sustainable LCoS RP product can be put into the marketplace. Phillips is the latest batter up....
