Los Angeles - The 3LCD Consortium
spearheaded by Epson and other video projector makers said Wednesday that the
world's first high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) TFT liquid crystal chips for
3D 3LCD projectors have launched.
The HTPS chips employ a new technology called Bright 3D Drive to
drive brighter images to audiences wearing shaded 3D glasses.
The group said the new chips are currently in volume production
to power 3D 3LCD projectors recently demonstrated at CEDIA Expo and other
The group reminded that the new 3LCD chips will continue to offer
a number of technology advantages, including:
the use of a 3-chip
optical engine for bright, life-like color images;
high color and white
light output to optimally handle images and text; and
* no color wheel
needed to produce color, saving viewers from artifacts including "rainbow
effects" and "color breakup."
