In case anyone is curious how a MEMS shutter technology would eliminate the need for color filters, as I was... the MEMS shutter can be switched much faster than liquid crystals, so they use a frame sequential color (FCS). That means they have three light sources, RGB, turned on in sequence for a single color sub-frame. This contributes to power savings since the normal loss of light with a filter is avoided. Got all this from a white paper you can find at their site.
