For the prices they charge in this market, it seems that they should 
be able to produce a professional DLP or D-LIA rear-projection display 
device with 14-bit/channel resolution which is designed for desktop 
use (32" or smaller). Control electronics similar to that used for 
Digital Cinema can be used.  The screen material and lamp would be 
suitable for professional grading.  If the "lamp" can be based on 
LEDs, then the display would last for 20K hours or more.

How come this approach has not been used?
