The Latest DLP TVs and Projectors

We venture beyond the mirrors to round-up the latest rear-projection and front-projection DLPs.

You've seen the commercials where they say It's the mirrors. The marketing oversimplifies things a bit, but the heart of every component using Texas Instruments' DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology is an optical semiconductor known as a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD). Mounted on hinges, up to two million microscopic mirrors tilt toward (pixel on) or away (pixel off) from the light source in coordination with a high-speed rotating color wheel. DLP technology offers a combination of high resolution and contrast for an extremely bright and detailed image.

Eliminating the conventional cathode-ray tube (CRT) and employing DLP technology has made it possible to shrink the size of rear projectors to less than 20-inches deep with screen sizes 50-inches or more.
