Saw this press release about a new DP 8K Projector and it states it uses a 3 DMD Chip design. However, I wasn't aware TI had developed an 8K chip set yet.

How are they doing this? It's a little vague on details. Is it a new 8K DLP chip? Or a new 4K DLP chip that that's using doing pixel shifting like in the low cost 4K DLP projectors?

Hey Donald, Thanks for the info. So a native 4K chip doing XPR and shifting 4 times?

Also found this on the DCI Forum (where I know you also post with Peter, et al)

http://dci-forum.com/news/2/dpi-shows-first-8k-xpr-3-dlp-single-dlp-laser-projectors-ise-2018/2544/

So there will be 2 8K projectors? One with a single chip doing XPR?

But what about the 3 chipper? Is that even possible to get that right with micro-alignments for all 3 chips shifting precisely at the same time to exactly the right position?

Not sure if it is properly shifting 4 times or just twice, at ISE the DPI salesguy even tried to tell me it was an 8K DMD;-). This DPI prototype was first shown late last year in Florida for I/ITSEC, then at ISE in Amsterdam in February and the other week or so Delta jumped in to claim what it is due. This a 3 DMD machine. DPI is currently selling its second generation/model 4K 25K projector, it is based on. I have no informaton about a single DMD projector, as DPI, nor Delta has an unit using a single 1.38" DMD to begin with. At ISE it showed a lot of noise and not too much (on-off) contrast in the picture. Personally I have been suggesting this ever since Panasonic first showed its Quad Pixel Drive in a 12 labelled 10K lumens laser-phosphor projector 4/5? years ago, and definitely since TI came along showing its solution, as TI told me its XPR shifting (and image processing Barco and Panasonic use their own) could be used with any existing DMD model. Panasonic and Barco have been using 0.9" DMDs, Barco adding the smaller 0.66", since.
I guess the first 'local' showing will be the last week of November when I/ITSEC returns to Orlando, Google says it is only ano hour on your Hog from Daytona Beach. So, you could just commute there. You must have at least one Hog living there;-).http://exhibits.iitsec.org/2018/public/eBooth.aspx?IndexInList=59&FromPage=Exhibitors.aspx&ParentBoothID=&ListByBooth=true&BoothID=168284Yup Infocomm will not be back in Florida till next year, that one is in Vegas this year.
