The collaboration of Luminus and TI has more than doubled brightness from last year enabling a range of new display products, including thin, high contrast, wide viewing angle TVs.
Among the prototypes being demonstrated at the DLP products booth at CES (Central Hall, Booth #8205) is a slim DLP HDTV illuminated using PhlatLight LED technology. The DLP TV, features a contrast ratio beyond 500,000:1, is ultra light and thin for easy wall mounting and due to the increased brightness, can use new screen technology doubling the viewing angle to match viewing angles of other flat screen technology.
Our continual improvements in brightness have opened up a new realm of display product categories previously thought impossible with conventional LEDs, said Christian Hoepfner, vice president of products at Luminus Devices, Inc. With the brightness levels we've reached with TI so far, we're on track to break the one thousand lumen mark this year with a front projector.
This achievement marks a significant breakthrough, not only in terms of performance, but also in the creation of exciting new large screen HDTVs and home theater projectors.http://www.luminus.com/content1244
