TEXAS INSTRUMENTS TO DELIVER SEMINAR ON DLP(tm) TECHNOLOGY AT INFOCOMM 2003Latest developments in DLP(tm) technology to be described
Dallas, Texas - May 27, 2003: At InfoComm 2003, Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN) will once again deliver a seminar that will update attendees on the latest developments that can be found in projectors featuring DLP(tm) technology from the world's leading manufacturers: DLP(tm) technology is revolutionizing business presentations, home entertainment and - with DLP Cinema(tm) technology - the movies. The seminar - which will run from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm on June 5th - will be given by Frank Moizio who is Manager of Worldwide Strategic Marketing & Business Development for DLP(tm) Business Products at Texas Instruments. Previous seminars have proved extremely popular.
"Our customers are leveraging the many unique features of DLP technology to develop projectors that lead the market in picture quality, flexibility and reliability and that are setting new standards in the broadening range of markets they serve," said Moizio. "This seminar will examine how our customers are taking those attributes and combining them with their own expertise to deliver world-class products. It will also look at some of the advances in DLP technology and what those might mean to our customers' future products, as well as comparing the capabilities of alternative technologies."
The seminar will describe how DLP(tm) technology works, and how it delivers unique benefits to projector manufacturers, resellers and end-users alike. The session is designed to provide attendees with an understanding of where DLP(tm) technology is going in the future from both a technology perspective and marketplace perspective, and what that is likely to mean in terms of projection systems in the future. Likely to be of particular interest will be discussion of the new range of DDR, 12 degree tilt DMDs that now feature in many products from TI's customers, together with information on other recent DLP(tm) developments such as the DDP2000 ASIC which integrates "world class" video front end electronics, and TI's wireless technology.
DLP(tm) technology delivers the clearest, sharpest, brightest, most accurate images in a broad range of projection and display applications including business projectors, home entertainment projectors, large screen tabletop TVs, video walls and projection systems used in commercial entertainment. DLP Cinema(tm) technology, which delivers large screen images that are superior in many respects to film, is helping to revolutionize the movie industry. Today, TI supplies DLP(tm) subsystems to almost all the world's top projector manufacturers, who then design, manufacture and market projectors based on DLP(tm) technology. Since early 1996, over 1,500,000 DLP(tm) subsystems have been shipped. Over the past four years, DLP(tm) technology-based projectors have consistently won some of the audio-visual industry's most prestigious awards, including, in June 1998, an Emmy Award from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
At the heart of TI's Digital Light Processing(tm) technology is the Digital Micromirror Device optical semiconductor chip. The DMD switch has an array of up to 2,000,000 hinged, microscopic mirrors, which operate as optical switches to create a high resolution, full color image.
