Most of the video-display headlines have centered on the LCD versus plasma big-screen competition. Kind of like McDonald's versus Burger King. But there's also Wendy's. Or, more to the point, video projectors.
It used to be that a brand name was just that. You always knew exactly what you were getting when you opened the box -- the name on the outside matched the components on the inside. These days, you can never tell. In the latest round of re-badging, Sharp is selling LCD panels to Sanyo, who's trying to make a name in the consumer electronics field.
