Televisions often incorporate the latest technologies in the visual world and with each new line being released, there’s often a brand new method being used and the image quality has been improved once again. While in some cases, the changes are negligible, the Digital-Light-Processing (DLP) chip has provided some notable changes within the visual quality world. Mitsubishi has begun implementing this technology into their major television lines, albeit using some of their own technologies to enhance it. Introducing latest DLP TVs from Mitsubishi, let’s first look at how DLP works.
How Does DLP Work?
Projectors have seen the DLP technology for longer than other visual displays, so it’s adequate to start there with an explanation. By utilizing a color wheel and a white lamp (or sometimes individual light sources using different colors), the DLP chip can synchronize the the colors with the required ones. The Digital Micromirror Device (DMD)is usually where the required colors are shown. This is a matrix of microscopic mirrors that relate directly to the number of pixels provided. If a color wheel is used, it will provide the primary colors and maybe some secondary ones.
As you can imagine, a color wheel could be impractical for a flat television. As such, this has been removed and an instant-on mechanism has been employed. The DMD uses a series of mirrors and this reduces the gaps between the pixels. This can only lead to enhanced image quality, especially at 1080p resolutions and 3D images. Fast-moving images where blur is a concern is not affected by the fast processes of the chip.
DLP has been implemented into two of their main lines, albeit under different names or differing technologies. The 3D Home Cinema TV provides 3D and DLP enhancements at larger television sizes, such as 60, 65, 73 and 82 inches. The LASERVUE line is DLP with their own tech, meaning it’s somewhat more improved, allowing for even better image quality.
If you are in the market for a new DLP television for your home, there is some innovative technology being launched. Read the Mitsubishi WD-82738 review or the Mitsubishi WD-82838 review for additional details about options.
