Mine is a Hitachi 43" (forget the model number). I thought, they were
simple 3 color light beams but reflected upward from the back instead of
the old front projection units. They have a weak plastic screen, not
a vacume sealed glass direct electron beam tube like standard tv/crts.
They certainly don't have the weight or shape of a crt screen. When I
bought mine, the tube HD TVs stopped about 36" and were much heavier
If I'm misunderstanding my unit, I stand corrected; but this is what
I meant by rear projection units; and they still account for a
good portion of HD TVs sales. They are generally < $2000 and provide
decent pictures for the price. They are still analog, not digital like
plasma/DLP/LCDs; but HD never-the-less. Mine can take an input of 480p,
720p, or 1080i. But I think its native mode is 1080i.
