TI Takes New Digital Cinema Chip to ShoWest

Texas Instruments introduced the .98 DLP Cinema chip at ShoWest. The new .98 DLP Cinema chip is comparable to the original 1.2 DLP Cinema chip introduced in 1999, optimized for screen sizes up to 40 feet. The .98 chip, though, is smaller and outputs up to 18,000 lumens.

Digital Cinema is a technology that we’ve known for years will, eventually, become standard. But it is only now hitting its stride. TI says DLP Cinema adoption increased by more than 350 percent globally through 2006 and it is currently installed in 3,334 screens in commercial theaters worldwide.
