According to engadget, REDs CEO revealed plans to bring out a 4K 3D laser projection system. The upcoming laser projection system will be targeted at both homes (presumably well off ones) and theaters.

The image is apparently so bright and clear that it left Stephen Pizzo, co-founder Element Technica, "speechless."

With dropping its LCD-TV production and focusing on the LaserVue, Mitsubishis laser-TV could soon be available outside the US:

Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, Inc. is restructuring the company and refocusing its business strategy to offer a wide range of visual solutions for large-screen devices.

The goal is to reclaim our position as the "large screen" company. To that end, on the Audio Visual (AV) side of our business, we will manufacture and sell micro-display projection televisions (MDPTVs) and Laservue televisions in sizes 73" and above. On the Professional Visual Systems (PVS) side, the company will concentrate on projector sales, display wall, printers and large public display screens. It also plans to expand its PVS business to Central and South America.

MDEA plans to exit the LCD-TV market entirely. Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America will reduce its workforce accordingly. Its offices in Ontario and Braselton will close. All services will relocate to Irvine, CA. Its factory in Mexicali, Mexico will reduce its workforce as well. The factory will continue to manufacture and assemble large-screen televisions.

The company is evaluating its dealer network to match its new product offerings to appropriate distribution channels.

Here a very interesting interview with Bill Beck from Laser Light Engines (LLE) about laser-projection and laser-cinema:
http://dcinematools.com/the-future-holds/3questions-laser-light-engines
It's a very detailed discussion about lumens, laser-speckle, energy-efficiency and 3D.

"You’ve seen digital. You’ve seen 3D. Now you can see the future. Welcome to Laser."
Kodak's motto for its Digital Cinema Projection Based on Laser Light Sources.

According to Chris Chinnock, Senior Analyst and Editor for Insight Media, Kodak's Laser Cinema Projection System is ready to go:
"The image quality is as good and sometimes better than a conventional Xenon-lamp-powered DLP digital cinema projector and it can be offered for about the same price. Commercially available laser projection systems aimed at the theatrical environment could be available in the second half of 2012, if Kodak inks projection manufacturing partnership deals in Q1′11."
The Kodak laser cinema program aims at four main goals:
  • Develop a projector that will provide a price / performance breakthrough for Digital Cinema
  • Generate a high value product for the exhibitors
  • Improve image quality, if possible, but not at the expense of cost
  • Extend value creation through the motion picture chain
As stated in previous posts, there is one main advantage of laser-projection: there are no expensive lamps to replace, which saves thousands of dollars per lamp. Besides this huge advantage, Kodak also throws in 3D operation for free.
Chris Chinnock, who visited Kodak’s massive 2000-seat theater, said that speckle was not an issue in their opinion and image quality will satisfy nearly all in the value chain.
According to the Large Display Report, Kodak uses lasers from Necsel, but the laser-projectors design also allows other laser-engines, like lasers from Laser Light Engines (LLE).

If you want to know more about the technical details, take a look at Kodak's Sellsheet.
