Developed by Texas Instruments, DLP is also known as micromirror technology. Each DLP semiconductor has over 1/2 million mirrors on its surface and each mirror is digitally controlled to project a high light, high color, and high resolution image.
A technology developed by Texas Instruments that reflects light from hundreds of thousands of tiny mirrors on a semiconductor chip to project an image. The chip itself is called a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD).
Developed by Texas Instruments, DLP is a light processing system that utilized hundreds of thousands of tiny spinning mirrors to reflect images. Many feel it offers the most accurate reproduction of color available today.
Technology developed by Texas Instruments that is based on a digital micromirror device (a chip with millions of microscopic, hinged mirrors). Red, green and blue light is filtered through a color wheel and directed alternately onto the DMD, which switches on and off up to 5,000 times a second. The reflected light is directed through a lens and onto a screen, creating the image. High end HDTV projectors use three DMDs and forgo the color wheel--each DMD corresponds to a separate color (red, green and blue).
Developed by Texas Instruments, the heart of this image projection device is a semiconductor chip, operating as a light switch. It contains a rectangular array of hinge-mounted microscopic mirrors; each of these micromirrors measures less than one-fifth the width of a human hair, and corresponds to one pixel in a projected image. Single-chip devices use a color wheel to reproduce color, while three-chip devices dedicate a chip to each of the primary colors, red, green and blue.
A type of display technology developed by Texas Instruments. This technology consists of thousands of tiny mirrors that reflect light to produce images. For a more detailed explanation, please refer to our Display Definitions reference guide in the Resources section of our site.
DLPâ„¢ technology delivers the clearest, sharpest, brightest, most accurate images in a broad range of projection and display applications including business projectors, home entertainment projectors, large screen tabletop TVs, video walls and projection systems used in commercial entertainment. DLP Cinemaâ„¢ technology, which delivers large screen images that are superior in many respects to film, is helping to revolutionize the movie industry.
The commercial name for this technology from Texas Instruments (TI): The technology inside is often referred to as either "micro-mirrors", or DMD: It works this way: build a few hundred thousand tiny mirrors, and line them up in 800 rows of 600 mirrors each. Now attach a hinge to each of those 480,000 mirrors. Attach each of those 480,000 hinges to its own very tiny motor! Power each motor with electrostatic energy! The motors tilt their mirrors up to 20 degrees at incredible speeds. This allows the mirrors to modulate light from a lamp, and send the "modulated signal" out through a lens, on to a screen. The most amazing part of DLP micro mirrors, is the scale of size. The 480,000 mirrors (actually 580,000 are used), hinges and motors are packed onto a "wafer" a bit larger than your thumbnail.
This is a line of projection televisions that provide premium quality picture quality without the use of a cathode ray tube. The projectors use a digital micro mirror device (DMD) to produce the images, which are then enlarged to fill the screen. The DMD device has more than 1.3 million tiny mirrors that are used to create the images in the same manner as pixels are used in cathode ray tube devices. DLP equipped televisions typically have a higher lumen and contrast ratios.
The name for a new technology from Texas Instruments: The technology inside is sometimes referred to as either "micro-mirrors", or DMD: It works in the same way ancient people used to signal each other by flashing sunlight off mirrors. However the modern version replaces the sun with a powerful lamp and uses hundreds of thousands of rotating mirrors, lined up in 800 rows of 600 mirrors each. Attach each of those 480,000 hinges to its own motor. The motors tilt their mirrors up to 20 degrees at incredible speeds. allowing the mirrors to modulate light from the lamp, and send the "modulated signal" out through a lens, on to a screen. Now comes the hard part - The 480,000 mirrors (actually 580,000 are used), hinges and motors are packed onto a "wafer" a bit larger than your thumbnail.
