DLP HDTV at 1080p 100,000:1 Contrast Ratio


DLP Products Continue Leadership in 1080p HDTV with the Introduction of a Slim LED HDTV Featuring Greater Than 100,000 to 1 Contrast Ratio

The new DLP HDTVs show a new .65" 1080p DLP chipset that is optimized to drive solid-state LED arrays to drastically increase contrast performance beyond 100,000 to 1. New 2007 products from Samsung based on this new chipset will also be on display. The 10-fold contrast improvement provides for a better viewing experience in almost any ambient room lighting situation. Additionally, LED illumination increases the color saturation to nearly 140% of the NTSC TV standard and delivers a color refresh rate of up to 48x the standard TV frame rate when combined with the inherent speed of DLP technology. LED illumination also provides "Instant On/Off" functionality and replaces a conventional lamp with a long-lasting (lifetime) light source.

Additional DLP innovations, including the integration of a 3D display mode, will be demonstrated by multiple DLP HDTV customers at CES. Due to the speed of the DLP technology, true stereoscopic high definition 3D is possible for an immersive gaming experience. TI is working with select customers to integrate 3D imaging in future DLP HDTV models.

Great HDTV Prices - Lowest Prices

Here is a great review from PC MAG

Listing for $1,199, the 46-inch WinBook 46D1 pleasantly surprised me with an out-of-the-box picture that exhibited natural and accurate colors. I also appreciated the 46D1's comprehensive menu options that included custom input naming and an effective backlight control that reduced the display's overall brightness to eye-comfortable levels. The WinBook only has one HDMI port, but that isn't terribly unusual for a budget set.

Visio's VP42 is a $1,099 (List) 42-inch plasma display that strikes a great balance between features, image quality, and price. In the lab, the VP42's effective video processor kept my standard and high definition videos artifact-free while the color quality and detail of its picture had me comparing it to a premium brand that cost three times as much.

Though it's smaller, at 32-inches, the AOC Envision L32W461 LCD TVcosts just $899 (List) and made a decent first impression by delivering a picture with natural and pleasing color quality. It's also another model that provides only one HDMI input, but its low price and ease of use made its limitations easier to accept.

Running for a low $1,199 (List), the ViewSonic N3751w provides three HDMI inputs, noteworthy for an HDTV at any price. In the lab, the set's eye-meltingly bright picture delivered a record breaking contrast ratio result too.

Why I prefer PLASMA HDTVs

My top reason is the contrast ratio, they can have up to 10,000:1 and I have seen the differences in contrast ratios first hand and they DO make a difference, especially when watching sports, computer generated imaging as in Shrek or Cars. You might see some LCDs advertising 15,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio which is about a 2000:1 static contrast ratio. Don't get suckered in!! always go for the static contrast ratio... that is the ratio that is displayed with Plasma hdtvs.

1080p resolution. It looks great on plasmas! viewing angles, color depth, and brightness on plasma displays are incredibly superior to other display types such as LCD, DLP, projection. One thing to note is that people say that plasmas have burn in.... well yes they did, but dont believe the hype anymore. Plasmas burn in problems have been fixed with the new advances in technology. Also, their half life has significantly increased so dont worry too much about that. You will be enjoying that plasma tv for many many years and by then you will be ready to buy another HDTV. 1440p resolution hdtvs are coming out so...


Looks fantastic hooked up to a computer. I have my media center PC hooked up to my HDTV and it looks great. I have tried it with a 1080p LCD and it looks really good too. Tried it with a DLP and LCOS, and not so good.

Those are the top reasons why I prefer a plasma hdvt over the rest.
