laser TV - Computer Definition
An enhancement to DLP-based rear-projection TVs from Mitsubishi that uses lasers as the light source. In traditional DLP processing, a mercury lamp shines white light through a rotating color wheel onto the DLP mirrors. In a laser TV, three lasers shine separate red, green and blue beams onto the DLP mirrors directly. Because of the lasers' high intensity, the range of colors is greater (color gamut), and the resulting image is expected to be equal to or better than 35mm film. See DLP.
