Intel engineers have demonstrated a technology which they promise will pave the way for large flat-screen TVs with clearer pictures than current systems - all for less than $2,000.
The Intel liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) technology, codenamed Cayley, is used to create small chips called microdisplays that produce images on large-screen, rear projection TVs.
Glenda Dorchak, vice president and general manager of Intel's consumer electronics division, said: "We're helping to bring large-screen, high-definition TVs to market at lower costs, giving consumers exciting new options for content in the digital home."
LCOS manufacturing technology sandwiches a layer of liquid crystal between a glass cover and a highly reflective, mirror-like surface patterned with pixels that sits on top of a silicon chip.
The system uses Intel's silicon manufacturing processes to produce a high-quality surface for reflecting light which creates an extremely bright display.
According to the chip giant, the technology is based on an all-digital design that produces a sharper, more precise image than other architectures based on analog technology.
Intel promised to deliver Cayley microdisplays in the second half of this year, stating that a number of TV component firms are already developing products based on the technology.
