    I wonder if they will use that technology with the upcoming D5 panels, or if this is just a prototype to show of what can be done in the future.

    From the article: The LCD panel in the prototype is manufactured using the company's D5 next-generation high-temperature polycrystalline Si TFT panel process technology.

    It looks very promising, but the gapes between pixels still isn't too good:

    That means 48% of the image is gaps between the pixels. Probably not a huge problem by any means with 1080 res though.

    If that CR is attainable without an iris, then it's another great leap for LCD, though I expect it to be somewhat lower when calibrated correctly for video. Considering that a correctly calibrated G90 CRT can achieve around 8500:1 CR, this new process may be around that figure and could possibly be approaching similar black levels too. I just wonder if it can perform as well as front projection as this prototype was a rear pro.

    Interesting times ahead. :)

    Gary.
