Intel won't be getting into television this year after all.

The Santa Clara, Calif., chipmaker said Monday it will not come out with a chip for making inexpensive large televisions this year and that it will rework the chip that has been in development for a later commercial release.

At the Consumer Electronics Show in January, Intel President Paul Otellini announced that the chip, code-named Cayley, would allow TV makers to come out with large-screen projection televisions that sell for under $1,800 by the end of the year. China's TCL had already committed to coming out with televisions based on Cayley, a liquid crystal on silicon, or LCOS, device.

"This will change large-screen television economics," Otellini said in January.

Intel was vague on why the chip is being reworked and delayed, but the company indicated it wasn't happy with the results of work to date.

"We are not going to bring a product to market this year," said spokeswoman Shannon Love. "We will go down a path that will give us clearer product differentiation and improved picture quality."
