I guess NEC had a tridigital at the show. I wonder if it was the new black chip unit.

I grabbed Chris Collins comments from this this thread.

NEC TriDigital HD4K: 3-Chip DLP. Tucked away on the lower level at the Visual Solutions booth. Showing "Legally Blonde" and "Windtalkers" on DVD and D5 HD beach footage on a large (10 foot plus) Da-Lite screen. Dithering "noise" evident on DVD footage, absolute black level was good but the contrast ratio on this thing is great, and the colors were absolutely amazing, especially on the underwater tropical fish HD material, blue blue deep water and vibrant orange and red fish, wow. 3500 Lumens, noise 51dB, MSRP $55K.

Yes, they call it dark metal DMD:

NEC Technologies incorporated the newest Texas Instruments dark metal DMD chips into its new Nighthawk SX4000D, SX6000D, and SX10000D, as well as its TriDigital HD4K, HD6K, and HD10K.

That dithering noise was actually coming from the cubit (spelling?) hard drive. It was acting up all day (supposedly). The native HD stuff was outstanding though...

I saw the noise, kind of a funky orage checkered pattern that kept flashing on the screeen, that was on Friday. I went back on Saturday and they had gotten a replacement "cubit" and that was gone. The dithering I saw is in the dark areas, especially adjacent to moving light areas, that had a pixelated appearance. This was only with the DVD source material, the HD material was awesome. The DVD stuff was still by far the best of any DLP I saw at the show, including the similarly priced Digital Projections unit. The colors and depth of field were amazing.
