Digital Light Processing is the one of primary display technologies driving this rapid growth and maturation .it is a revolutionary way to project and display information based on the Digital Micro Mirror Device (DMD) Digital Light processing was invented in 1987 by Texas Instruments it creates the final link to display digital visual information.
Digital Light Processing creates deeper blacks, conveys fast moving images very well and uses a single, replaceable, white -light bulb . it is available in both front-and rear-projection models DLP is an excellent choice for people who watch a lot of sports or fast-action movies because of the speed at which it creates an image.
A Digital Micro Mirror Divice chip is the heart of Digital Light Processing projector, DMD can be described simply as a semiconductor light switch. The micro mirrors are mounted on the DMD chip and it tilts in response to an electrical signal. The tilt directs light toward the screen, or into a "light trap" that eliminates unwanted light when reproducing blacks and shadows. Other elements of a DLP projector include a light source, a colour filter system, a cooling system, illumination and projection optics.
A DLP based projector system includes memory and signal processing to support a fully digital approach. Depending on the application, a DLP system will accept either a digital or analog signal. Analog signals are converted into digital in the DLPs front –end processing. Any interlaced video signal is converted into an entire picture frame video signal through interpolative processing. The signal goes through DLP video processing and becomes progressive Red (R), Green (G) and Blue (B) data. The progressive RGB data is then formatted into entire binary bit planes of data.
