LPD technology promises more eco-friendly HDTVs

prysm-logoCES 2010 is over but one announcement saved until after may be the biggest yet in display development. Silicon Valley company Prysm revealed a new HDTV technology that uses 75% less energy than established LCD, plasma, DLP and OLED technologies. The company developed what is called a Laser Phosphor Display, or LPD, which it claims can be constructed of non-toxic materials.

Prysm says the technology is scalable, which makes it ideal for large low-energy consuming displays. The company also says the LPD display produces zero motion blur, and will be 3D compatible.

The LPD uses semiconductor lasers and a self-calibrating architecture which makes it long lasting. In addition, the technology allows displays of any shape, size and resolution.

The Washington Post (via TechCrunch) reported on the promised technology, but says Prysm has yet to deliver any any proof. Apparently they (Prysm) plan to market commercial usage of the displays first, then, introduce the energy-saving displays into homes. (Read the article.)

Prysm says they will launch the product as ISE 2010 (Integrated Systems Europe) and infoComm10 (Las Vegas, NV) this year.
