NEC NP100 Gets Reviewed

31%2BAt88%2BLdL._SL500_AA280_.jpgThe NEC NP100 DLP projector is a good choice for the budget-oriented shopper looking for a portable projection solution suitable for both home theater use and business presentations. Lightweight at only 2.4kg, the NEC NP100 features native 800x600 pixel SVGA resolution, can kick out 2000 ANSI lumens, and is suitable for use in small to medium rooms with low lighting. For those interested in the presentation side of things, tests revealed a crisp 64-inch image from a projector placement of 3 meters away from the screen. Text and graphics were sharp and color rendering was good when connected to both a laptop's VGA port and a DVD player's composite video output. The projector also features a built-in 2 watt speaker perfect for presentation audio, but not so much for home theater use.

The NEC NP100 DLP projector is available at Amazon.

Business Projectors: What You Need To Know Before You Buy

30974227-2-200-0.jpgWhile you can find business projectors for a few hundred dollars these days, looking for the cheapest price around may be selling yourself, and your audience, short. Many lower cost business projectors only work well in completely darkened rooms, and when's the last time you gave a business presentation in the dark? The optimal price range for finding good value and great features? In between $1500-$2000, says Peter Knaak of the German consumer testing organization Stiftung Warentest in Berlin. Knaak adds that he has yet to see a projector priced at less than $1500 that is worth recommending for business presentations.

Okay, so we've nailed down price, but what about features?

Cell Phone Projector Latest Use For DLP

thumb_230_4A.jpgTV design trends in the past year or so have dictated that thinner sets are better. DLP TV's use a rear-projection lamp that makes it virtually impossible for them to be as thin as plasma, LCD, or OLED displays, and that's probably why DLP revenue fell 21% between the third quarter of 2006 and the third quarter of 2007. Nobody wants a thick TV anymore. But the maker of DLP chipsets, Texas Instruments, won't give up on the high-definition technology.

Not only is Texas Instruments working to improve the quality of DLP technology, they're also promoted the benefits of DLP projectors to entirely new markets like churches and schools. The most interesting thing the company is doing with DLP though, is developing a handheld video projector.

The company announced plans at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to release the DLP Pico, an ultrasmall projector, later in 2008. Targeted for the mobile phone market, the DLP Pico has been shown in the past as a prototype but Texas Instruments has never announced plans to actually release the technology to the consumer market.
The DLP Pico is composed on an ultrasmall DLP device and both DDP1500 and DDP1505 control processors. It also employs proprietary "DarkChip technology" for an improved contrast ratio. Whether or not the idea of a mobile handheld projector will be accepted by the buying public remains to be seen, we'll definitely know more in the latter half of 2008.

Rear-Projection DLP TV: Texas Instruments Argues New DLP Chip Will Keep Rear-Projection TV Alive


Rear-Projection TV Alive And Well?

Despite the fact that monolithic giants in the TV manufacturing world such as Sony are leaving rear-projection TV's behind to focus on LCD's and plasma's, Texas Instruments is holding out, betting on smaller digital light processing (DLP) chips and other technological advancements to revive the rear-projection sector.

Definitely a brave move by Texas Instruments though, as their third quarter revenues last year dropped 21% from third quarter 2006 and research firm iSuppli forecasts a 25% drop in rear-projection sales over the next 2 years culminating in a paltry 1% market share by 2010. But Texas Instruments argues....

Mitsubishi's 27 Million Pixel, 340 Degree DLP Panoramic Display


Mitsubishi has designed a 2 meter tall, 7.5 meter diameter, 340 degree panoramic display. Built for a private customer the display boasts a pixel resolution of 27 million pixels (which only works out to 720p) and utilizes synchonized rear-projection displays in each of 17 panels. The system uses Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology and the buying price is 150 million yen or about $1.3 million. Wow! Although the company won't reveal the customer or the intended use of the display, they hope to market it to museums as a virtual reality display or to be used for traffic simulations.
