what is...
DLP
Stands for Digital Light Processing. Is Texas Instruments' answer to the LCD, as used in many high-end video/data projectors. The DLP imaging device compromises thousands of microscopic 'mirrors', each representing a single pixel, which are angled towards (or away from) the light source to make the projected image darker or lighter. Three of these 'digital micromirror devices' (DMDs) are used for color. They are more efficient at transmitting light than LCD's, meaning they are brighter.
