Texas Instruments pico-projector technology on show
January 21, 2008
Texas Instruments is moving steadily towards commercialization of miniature projection devices with Sypro and Young Optics showing manufacturing prototypes of their pico-projection systems based on TI's Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology at the 2008 CES. The company sees the future for DLP pico-projectors in either a standalone format or as integrated modules in handheld devices.
As reported by Gizmodo, the Texas Instruments prototype device shown at the CES provides an adequate image for sharing clips or as a highly-portable means for road warriors to make presentations on the fly, but, at least in its current guise, its not likely to be the viewing platform of choice for high-definition video.
