  DLP - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
DLP ([1]) was originally developed at Texas Instruments, in 1987 by Dr. Larry Hornbeck.
In DLP projectors, the image is created by microscopically small mirrors laid out in a matrix on a semiconductor chip, known as a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD).
A three-chip DLP projector uses a prism to split light from the lamp, and each primary color of light is then routed to its own DMD chip, then recombined and routed out through the lens.

The heart of DLP™ technology is a micro-display panel no larger than a postage stamp, which integrates 921,600 microscopic mirrors to deliver eye-popping, high definition detail, color and clarity.
DLP™ technology is the only display solution that enables projection systems to create a purely digital connection between a digital video or graphic source and the screen in front of you.
The surface of the DLP™ panel is covered with almost a million micro-mirrors (1280 x 720), that act as pixels.

A DLP® chip's micromirrors are mounted on tiny hinges that enable them to tilt either toward the light source in a DLP® projection system (ON) or away from it (OFF)-creating a light or dark pixel on the projection surface.
DLP® technology-enabled projectors for very high image quality or very high brightness applications such as cinema and large venue displays rely on a 3-chip configuration to produce stunning images, whether moving or still.
Each DLP® chip is dedicated to one of these three colors; the colored light that the micromirrors reflect is then combined and passed through the projection lens to form an image.

And in the office, the superior brightness of DLP™ projection gives presentations maximum impact-even in rooms where ambient light is difficult or impossible to control.
DLP Cinema™ projects a crystal clear movie onto every inch of the screen, every time-eliminating the scratches, flutter and focus problems that come with film.
DLP™ projection systems are more reliable than the analog alternatives because, being digital, they are able to recreate their incoming video or graphic source material every time they project it.

 DLP Projection
At the heart of every DLP™ projection system is an optical semiconductor known as the Digital Micromirror Device, or DMD chip, which was invented by Dr. Larry Hornbeck of Texas Instruments in 1987.
The white light generated by the lamp in a DLP™ projection system passes through a color wheel as it travels to the surface of the DMD panel.
DLP™ technology-enabled projectors for very high image quality or high brightness applications such as cinema and large venue displays rely on a 3-DMD-chip configuration to produce stunning images, whether moving or still.

 The Great Technology War: LCD vs. DLP
In a DLP projector, light from the projector's lamp is directed onto the surface of the DLP chip.
That's primarily because in most single-chip DLP projectors, a clear (white) panel is included in the color wheel along with red, green, and blue in order to boost brightest, or total lumen output.
This boost in contrast is derived from Texas Instrument's newer DLP chip designs, which increase the tilt of the mirrors from 10 degrees to 12 degreees, and features a fl substrate under the mirrors.

 Northampton Businesses - DLP
The Digital Imaging division – which has responsibility for the development, manufacture and marketing of DLP technology – was founded in 1992 in order to capitalize on the invention by Dr. Larry Hornbeck in 1987 of the Digital Micromirror Device™ (DMD™).
Mounted on the surface of an SRAM cell, the DMD comprises a rectangular array of microscopic (16 microns square) mirrors.
Digital Imaging sells DLP technology – in the form of DLP subsystems – to companies ("OEMs") who are involved in the design, manufacture and marketing of projectors and other image display devices.

 TI/DLP Cinema Review
Rack of equipment for DLP presentations; the fl box in the center is a "Qubit" player, which replaces the Pluto hard-disk array which was used for the Secaucus screenings.
The DLP machine was installed in auditorium #9, originally for screenings of "Dinosaur"; it has since been used for "Fantasia 2000" and, now, "Perfect Storm." Although this is one of a relatively small number of cinemas to test the DLP system, there has been almost zero publicity about its use.
DLP is interesting and will have many important non-cinema applications in the short term, but I would say that it is "not quite there yet" on an image quality level when compared with 35mm film.

DLP is based on an optical semiconductor known as the Digital Micromirror Device, which was invented in 1987 by Dr. Larry Hornbeck of Texas Instruments.
This Digital Micromirror Device, aka DLP chip, is made of a rectangular array of up to 2 million microscopic mirrors that can tilt back and forth in response to on and off signals, reflecting the light coming from a light source.
That means when you have a DLP TV with a DVI or HDMI input, the video signal will remain digital all the way until it is displayed on the screen, contrary to LCD and Plasma displays in which a digital signal will be transformed to analog in the last step.

 LCD vs DLP
DLP has been well-received in the home theater world primarily due to two video quality advantages that were lacking in LCDs—better contrast and the lack of pixelation.
This sudden substantial boost in contrast is derived from Texas Instrument's newest DLP chip design, which increases the tilt of the mirrors from 10 degrees to 12 degreees, and features a fl substrate under the mirrors.
Conversely, DLP color accuracy and saturation has improved significantly this year, so color performance on the latest models is much better than it used to be.

DLP stands for Digital Light Processing, a unique projection technology developed by Texas Instruments and based around a proprietary semiconductor called a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD).
The DLP light engine is capable of very high brightness (though not as bright as LCD), so a DLP set can be viewed even in bright room conditions.
DLP is not as bright as LCD technology, nor as compact as LCD or plasma flat-panel models (though the typical DLP rear-projection set is much shallower than most CRT-based rear-projection systems).

Digital Light Processing (DLP) advocates say projectors built around the DLP chip are smaller and lighter, have a greater contrast ratio, and are better for showing video.
High-end DLP projectors, such as those in the $25,000 to $150,000 range, are 7,000-lumen-plus monsters that use three DLP color chips – one for each RGB color.
Smaller, less-expensive DLP projectors have only one chip, and color is created by a fast-spinning color wheel that alternates the color of the light hitting the chip from red to green to blue.
