Mitsubishi has officially named the world’s first laser-powered television. Now we all know what to call the TV introduced earlier this year at CES: LaserVue.
Mitsubishi says its LaserVue TVs will deliver “a range of color never before seen in home entertainment.” Gamers who own a PS3 or Xbox 360 should pay particular attention to Mitsubishi’s new LaserVue, as no entertainment medium relies more on crisp, vivid pictures than videogames.
LaserVue will ship to authorized retailers during the third quarter of this year.
Mitsubishi also released details about its 2008 DLP line and new ultra-thin LCD line. Highlights include a thinner frame and brighter picture on the DLP models, and a proprietary Ultra Thin Frame on the LCD HDTVs. Again, brightness is an important feature for gamers, especially in light of the upcoming games such as Gears of War 2 and Killzone 2, which promise dark in-game environments in addition to lighter outdoor levels.
The company’s LCD HDTVs will also ship with improved sound capabilities for those who don’t have a surround-sound system.
Mitsubishi’s new DLP models will be available later this month, while the LCD HDTV models will be available beginning in May.
DailyGame hopes to provide more information about these sets, particularly the LaserVue, as they near their retail release dates.
