    Hi Jim, this TV uses LCOS technology, that is Liquid Crystal On Silicon. And besides having all the features of the misubishi TV, it supports resolutions of 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p. It's a great set, with an excellent image quality, but very, very expensive, around the $20,000.

    Worth also pointing out that it will be able to display the full resolution of HDTV, something the vast majority of consumer sets cannot do.

    Perhaps I should have been more specific:

    1. When will this unit ship?
    2. Has anybody seen the picture?
    3. Any chance of a slightly smaller - and cheaper unit?
    4. Will it REALLY - gulp - sell for $20K?

    Does it suffer from contrast problems? I've heard that LCOS technology has worse contrast than DLP systems. Anyone have the facts? I coudn't find any hard numbers, just generalizations.

    I agree with Hugo, it was the best looking RPTV at CEDIA. It looked extremely impressive, but I was only watching Mitsu's demo material. I picked up a spec sheet on it, but I don't have it with me right now. From what I remember (could be wrong), it is rated at 1000:1 contrast, 200 w bulb, and diffusion screen (much preferred by videophiles over high gain but spotty lenticulars).
