DLP Technology Advantages

DLP technology has advantages over nearly every other display platform. Millions of tiny mirrors make the picture amazing for Projectors powered with DLP technology.

  • From the largest to the smallest displays on the planet, DLP is leading

  • All digital display from DLP chip

  • Light source agnostic

  • Award-winning color accuracy

  • No limitations on resolution

  • Unparalleled switching speed allows built-in intelligence

  • Low power consumption

  • All DLP chips share the same architecture as award-winning DLP Cinema

  • The flexible DLP chip is used in both traditional and non-traditional displays

From the largest to the smallest displays on the planet, DLP is leading

DLP shares the DNA of the ultimate picture experience in the Cinema making it the most highly versatile display technology. It can enable the world's smallest projectors under 8 ounces and light up the largest movie screens up to 100 feet. Engineers have begun medical research to inset DLP technology into the human eye as a retina replacement; there is no stopping where DLP will go next!

All digital display from DLP chiph

DLP technology is a revolutionary display solution that uses an optical semiconductor to manipulate light digitally. When a DLP chip is coordinated with a digital video, graphic signal, a light source, and a projection lens, its mirrors can reflect an all-digital image onto any surface.

Light source agnostic

Reinforcing the flexibility of the DLP chip, manufacturers can select any light source to pair with DLP Technology. The DLP chip is light source agnostic to lamp, laser and LED light.

Award-winning color accuracy

DLP products are the industry standard for all post production cinematic color calibration work due to the color spectrum produced by DLP. In February 2010, DLP received the Academy Board of Governors’ Scientific and Engineering Award (Academy Plaque) for color accuracy from DLP Cinema.

No limitations on resolution

There are no technical limitations to the achievable resolution from a DLP chip. The technology can scale to 4K resolution when needed in the biggest, brightest display down to HD resolution in miniature display put inside mobile devices. DLP will scale to any data resolution as content demands it.

Low power consumption

Texas Instruments is a leader in research and development. DLP continues to innovate on increasing display brightness decreasing while dramatically decreasing packaging size and required power. DLP Pico has hit milestones on lumens per watt which is directly proportional to allowing consumers to now have embedded projection from a cell phone.

The flexible DLP chip is used in both traditional and non-traditional displays

DLP technology is best known for award winning DLP Cinema® and innovations in classroom projection display such as 3D and interactive projection, but the incredibly flexible technology is finding its way into a variety of non-traditional display applications as well. Developers are using the DLP chip to solve real world problems for industrial, security, medical and even automotive applications that require built in intelligence.
