What is a DLP television?
DLP™ technology is based on an optical semiconductor called a Digital
Micromirror Device (DMD) chip. The DMD enables light to be modulated digitally via
millions of microscopic mirrors. These mirrors are literally capable of switching
on and off thousands of times per second and are used to direct light towards or
away from a dedicated pixel space. In this technology high intensity lamps are used
to generate a white light beam which will pass through a color wheel which allows
for display of very vibrant and accurate colors. Although not as slim as flat-panel
TVs DLP TVs are able to be produced in larger sizes (up to 82”) which makes them
a viable option for viewing in a Media Room or any other room where large TVs are
desired. A recent advancement in DLP technology replaces the lamp and color wheel
with red, green, and blue lasers, which will create images with twice the color
gamut of conventional TVs in a depth which allows for wall mounting.
Benefits of DLP TV’s
DLP 1080p technology delivers over 2 million pixels on-screen with full 1920 x 1080
resolution, the highest available. DLP technology is redefining the movie-going
experience with an incredible all-digital picture. DLP technology generally provides
extremely high native contrast (for great black level performance in home theater
projectors). Video and graphics produced by DLP technology are sharper because the
DLP chip minimizes the gaps between pixels in an image. DLP TVs generate images
so true, that it is like you're there. DLP technology is virtually immune to color
decay or yellowing of the image after extended periods of usage. DLP provides the
best size to dollar ratio.
