ORLANDO, Fla., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN) today at InfoComm announced that shipments of its BrilliantColor technology for front projection products have exceeded 100,000 units. BrilliantColor technology, introduced last year at InfoComm, enables a greater than 50% brightness increase in mid tone images, common in video and natural scenes resulting in highly saturated images. This year, six customers will be showcasing WXGA, XGA and 720p projectors featuring this new technology delivering vibrant colors and 1000 to 5000 lumens of brightness to meet the needs of the business, education and consumer market segments. In addition to highlighting BrilliantColor, TI will showcase its leadership in native and dynamic contrast ratio with the demonstration of DynamicBlack for front projection products. DynamicBlack technology allows customers to achieve a 3 to 4 times increase in contrast ratio over native contrast ratio. For example, 3000:1 native contrast ratio products could achieve contrast ratios up to 12000:1, creating a new benchmark for image quality. "Each year we strive to offer our customers more options to differentiate their products," said Lars Yoder, Business Manager, TI DLP(R) Front Projection Products. BrilliantColor offers great color advances and it also gives customers more flexibility and more color choices. We believe customer innovation with DynamicBlack will provide a similar opportunity to differentiate with contrast ratio." Several DLP customers will be showing production products using BrilliantColor technology at InfoComm including BenQ, Dell, Mitsubishi, Optoma, Panasonic and Sharp.
