This article reports that while cheap DVD players enable to enjoy digital-quality films, the high cost of large, flat television screens has kept the complete home-cinema experience out of reach for most consumers. But British company, Cambridge Flat Projection Displays hopes to change this with a 20 mm-thick 50 in screen that could cost a fraction of today's state-of-the-art large screen TVs. The company is negotiating with Far East manufacturers to bring the screen into mass production, and expects to have something on the market by 2007.
