    Interesting .... Intel to Delay Product for High-Definition TVs

    Not really a surprise, considering that we've heard nothing since CES2004 last January. The article does say that Intel misjudged the demand for 1 MP vs 2 MP HD displays.

    For reference, here's the original Intel press release from CES2004 on 8-Jan-2004 regarding LCoS HDTV Chips enabling sub-$2000 RPTV's by 4Q-04.

    Interesting, the spin different news organizations put on the story:

    Financial times uses words like "scrapped the launch" and make it seem like an overall failure in a series of failures by Intel, whereas Reuters makes it more like a delay (which as anyone who works in the tech industry knows happens very frequently).

    This news sucks. I want to buy 1 television to last a few years, and I decided to wait for high-resolution 3-chip LCOS (not the Philips sets out now). Looks like I'll be waiting a little longer. [​IMG]

    Go to your local Best Buy.

    There's the 52" JVC D-ILA/LCOS set at the one nearest to me. In fact, right next to it is the Samsung HLP, then the Toshiba 52HM84, the Mitsubishi DLP set, and the LG.

    I've seen lcos projectors, or their variants anyway. Stunning. TI has some major new competition in the high-end.

    This is not quite true. The JVC is a 3-chip unit, with 1280x720 native resolution. The Philips one is the single chip (also 1280x720 native) solution with the spinning prism.

    The JVC does look very good (no rainbows!!!), but it seems the 52" Mits and Samsungs do have more detail - sometimes. It is really hard to tell.
