TI DLP technology enables 3-D TV viewing in the home

DLP products from Texas Instruments (TI) showcased its HD 3-D DLP technology at the CEDIA Expo, the high-end home theater and entertainment industry's annual meeting. DLP core technology is enabling stereoscopic 3-D capability for HDTVs that are currently on the market. CEDIA attendees saw first-hand how TI DLP products are providing consumer electronics manufacturers a simple, yet high-performance, solution that will deliver 3-D content in the home.

As the technology behind leading 3-D HDTV applications, the extremely fast response and refresh rate of the DLP chip allows consumer electronics manufacturers to innovate options for HDTVs that add an immersive 3-D view to TV viewing. Future-proofing HDTVs with 3-D capabilities is especially desirable for video gaming, immersive action scenes and sports.

Following a similar path that led to the adoption of DLP Cinema technology, 3-D DLP HDTV opens the doors for immediate adaptation of existing 3-D computer games, software and future 3-D content by providing a unique display option. More than 4500 screens worldwide use DLP Cinema technology, with nearly 1000 of them enabled for 3-D movies — further growth is expected as Hollywood expands the number of 3-D releases.

Newly developed 3-D-ready HDTV models from Mitsubishi and Samsung create a HD stereo 3-D picture when connected to a compatible HDMI/DVI source. Active glasses synchronize to the display then separate the stereo images to each eye, thus providing the enriching, flicker-free immersive 3-D viewing experience.

TI DLP products have aided the growth of 3-D movies and content by working closely with major movie studios, OEMs and partner companies. Consumer interest in 3-D entertainment content continues to steadily increase as a result of theatrical 3-D releases such as “Meet the Robinsons,” “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” and other studio projects in development.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
