Not sure there's any real connection. It seems that HDI announced their laser projector(s) about the same time that RED did. And forgive me, as I just did a few minutes of online sleuthing so may have missed it, but it seems that their web site has been down since late last year. And even as late as august of last year, this HDI company couldn't produce anything more than a couple very crappy looking product renders. They apparently also announced a laser-based TV previously and never managed to show even a physical mock-up, let alone a functional product.
