Rear Projection TVs Finally End Production

In the end of another era, the first type of really BIG screen TV's, the rear projection sets, are no more. Mitsubishi is ending production because of continuing competition from flat screen sets, and they were the last company still making this type of set. A rear projection TV, as the name suggest, uses clever optics to project the TV image onto a translucent screen from inside the TV cabinet. While this allowed for large screen sizes, viewing angles could be a bit funky and the TVs themselves are quite bulky. The now-popular flat panel displays use technology more akin to a laptop computer screen to produce their images, and the sets themselves can be much slimmer.
