JVC Announces 1080p D-ILA Chip Production


By Greg Tarr -- TWICE, 8/5/2005 10:25:00 AM


Tokyo - Victor Company of Japan, Ltd. (JVC) said it will begin volume production this month of a new 0.7-inch D-ILA (Direct-Drive Image Light Amplifier) 1080p high definition chip, which will be added to family of liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) microdisplay devices.


The new 0.7-inch D-ILA chip is said to be smaller and less expensive than JVC’s previous 0.8-inch device. It will produce full 1920-by-1080 high definition resolution (approximately. 2.07 million pixels).


JVC plans to release HD projection televisions in Japan and North America that will use the new device in tandem with the company’s next generation high-resolution imaging technologies, the company said.

This isn't the chip for the 1080p's that are slated to ship 3Q, this is a new one, right? Nothing like the hardware for a set being obsolete before it ships ;)

From what I can tell, they are one and the same.

The new device, which will commence volume production in August, is smaller and lower in cost than its predecessor 0.8-inch D-ILA full HD device. JVC plans to release full HD projection televisions in Japan and North America that will make use of the new device to augment its high-end range of projection televisions, which is currently composed of the company’s lineup of 720p projection televisions.
You don't need to read the Twice.com release. The JVC release can be found here. They even have some pretty pictures.
