DLP Slims Down

This is big. Actually it’s smaller. But it’s a great development for DLP. At CEDIA, there were several new DLP TVs on the show floor that showed a new, thinner version of the sets. Whereas DLP sets in the past were anywhere from 15 to 32 or so inches in depth, these new sets are just 10 inches thick. These can actually be hung on the wall!

Slim HDTV DLP units include LED-based 1080p DLP HDTVs from Samsung, which are now shipping, and units from NuVision, expected later this fall. TI says DLP HDTVs with an LED light source generate superior color performance, and combined with the inherent speed of DLP technology, a color refresh rate up to 48x the standard TV frame rate. LED technology also increases the color saturation to nearly 140% of the NTSC TV standard, provides Instant On/Off functionality, and replaces a traditional bulb with a longer-lasting light source according to TI.
