DLP projection TV

Instead of a plasma screen tv, have you considered a dlp projection tv? Dlp stands for “digital light processing” and is the new standard for projection televisions. If you’ve been thinking about buying a new television for a while, you must have seen the latest rear-projection tv’s in your neighborhood electronics store. Samsung dlp tv’s are particularly popular because they were the first to popularize and advertise the new digital technology. Amongst flat screen tvs, a dlp projection tv offers an economical solution to those seeking a really big screen tv experience. For the price of a 42 inch plasma television, you can get a high end dlp tv that can measure in excess of 60 inches. Now how’s that for big!

A dlp projection tv is perfect for the family room or the basement games room. Their big screen sizes make watching your favorite sports or nature programs particularly exciting. The big advantage these flat screen tvs have over the projectors of the 1980’s is how thin they are. Almost all are less than 2 feet deep for a 50 inch rear projection television. Moreover, they can be almost as bright and just as clear as the latest lcd or plasma screen tv’s. Watching Disney’s “Finding Nemo” on a Samsung dlp tv is almost like having your own home screening. Besides Samsung, Sony also produces an impressive line of dlp televisions.

A dlp projection tv utilizes Texas Instruments’ proprietary micro-mirror technology. This is basically a miniature device no larger than a thumbnail and which has hundreds of thousands of tiny, tiny mirrors that reflect a high-intensity light beamed onto it. Each micromirror corresponds to a pixel on the screen and as these mirrors are switched on and off thousands of times a second, an image is produced. Because of the miniature nature of all the mechanical devices, the dlp television is able to produce flat screen tv image and requiring very little cabinet space.
