Neutralizing the Competitive Edge
the zoom adjustment. The bottom line--think creatively about how you want to manage the display of different types of formats in your theater. Though a standard 16:9 projector on a 16:9 screen is a fine solution for a lot of people, it may not be right for you.
We also recently posted the shootout of the 480p projectors. These things are the hottest thing going at the moment, due to their outstanding performance for the money. Entry level home theater never looked so good, and DLP technology has definitely contributed to a revolution in video quality for those starting out with big screen theater systems in the home.
Speaking of DLP, we saw what promises to be a significant competitive development from Texas Instruments at Infocomm. They announced "BrilliantColor", which delivers up to six colors in the rotation of the wheel--red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, yellow. From the demos it appears that this new color wheel design will deliver enriched colors the likes of which we've not yet seen from DLP. Historically LCD has maintained an edge over DLP in color richness and saturation. Once the new DLP products with BrilliantColor begin to hit the market, that competitive edge will be neutralized.
