In the industry’s first-ever independent survey asking AV’ers which projection technology, LCD or DLP, they prefer, LCD has won in a big way. We will do this survey annually in the future, so we’ll see how it evolves over time.
Our February survey was pretty simple — Which technology do you prefer: LCD or DLP, in eight different applications? The applications included:
- House of Worship
- K-12 & Higher Education
- Conference Room/Boardroom
- Large Screen Entertainment
- Government and Security
The survey garnered nearly 5,000 votes and the clear winner — in seven of the eight applications, the winner was LCD. We did have a ninth category (home theaters), but we had some major some ballot-stuffing from projector manufacturers — so we threw that category out (we will, however, give our readers another opportunity to re-vote on that category this summer).
In any case, we complied the results in an infographic, which you can check out here.
Have you seen our article on Sony’s new Laser Projection Technology? No? Well, you should read it. Because sooner than you probably think, it will be the competitor to LCD and DLP technology.
