Featured applications

TI DLP chips in the standard portfolio enable a myriad of high brightness, high resolution projection solutions. Product developers can select a chipset and optical module that best meets the specific application’s display requirements.

Learn about  the following applications:

Laser TV

Laser TV products are projection displays that utilize a laser light source, typically in conjunction with ultra-short throw optics, to create large, bright, beautiful pictures and video. This portable solution is a desirable alternative to large flat panel TVs since they can be lighter, have a smaller footprint and provide greater mobility from room to room or house to house.  DLP standard chipsets are compatible with laser and laser phosphor illumination and enhance Laser TV applications by delivering high brightness capabilities and sharp 4K UHD resolution.  If you are interested in a smaller, lower power device, see mobile Smart TV products:

Digital signage

Digital signage is a display solution to  convey information and content to a viewer. Benefits include flexibility to adapt the content on demand as well as ability to project on multiple surface types. Bright and eye-catching content might include menus, navigation guides, event updates or advertising in hotels, restaurants, airports and other large public areas. Enabling various display sizes and resolutions of up to 4K UHD, DLP standard chipsets enable large, bright and free-form displays on virtually any surface.  Ultra-mobile digital signage is a related application that DLP Pico™ chipsets enable.
