TI ships 5 millionth DLP system

Texas Instruments has shipped its 5 millionth digital light-processing (DLP) system.

Giving the Dallas-based company a lift was the projection TV market, which, with 5.7 million units, was third as a display category — behind cathode-ray-tube (CRT) and liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) — in sets shipped worldwide in 2004, according to research firm iSuppli. In the projection set market, DLP-based projection sets came in second with 750,000 shipped, just behind CRT projection sets, which, at 4.2 million units, made up a majority of the market.

Projection televisions helped the company to ramp up shipments in the past eight months when it shipped two million units, TI told CNET.

TI expects projection sets to play a big role in its future. The company currently works with more than 20 manufacturers in the TV space, including Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, Panasonic, Thomson, Toshiba and Mitsubishi.
