Laser light is collimated to that the light is can be directed precisely which makes it appear brighter... but a lumen is still a lumen.
Here's what they are trying to get at.
1 lumen = 1 candela·steradian
so 1 'standard' candle produces 4π lumens.
A candle does not seem all that bright, but imagine through mirrors and lenses you could direct all that luminous flux into a spot the size of a laser beam. That one spot would seem quite a lot brighter than the candle.
In fact, at a reasonable viewing distance 1 "pixel" of this device might be 1/10" x 1/10" or 1/14,400 of a square foot (or about 1/180,000 of the area of a 1' sphere around a candle)
Higher prices AND crappier blanks, no thank you
