3LCD Achieves Projection Industry Milestone: 60 Million Chips Shipped

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- 3LCD, the world's leading projection display technology, is celebrating yet another major milestone in the projection industry as the first projection technology in the world to surpass the 60 million chip mark. This falls on the heels of last year's announcement that the technology had exceeded 50 million chips shipped.

3LCD is the technology that powers the majority of all projectors in the education, business and home theater space, and the 3-chip design delivers vibrant, true-to-life images with high Color Light Output. First introduced in 1988, the technology has consistently contributed to innovations in image quality, road-tested reliability, energy efficiency and overall performance.

As an industry veteran with more than 20 years of experience, and support from some of the biggest names in the business, 3LCD continues to be the choice technology for projection needs worldwide. Just last month, 3LCD announced its continued leadership in the front projection market among traditional projector buyers(1) - those looking for projectors touting 500 Lumens or more - and the new milestone further demonstrates the success of the technology.

And, despite the ever-changing projection market, 3LCD continues to offer a number of technology advantages over the competition, including:

  • 3-Chip Optical Engine: All 3LCD projectors use a 3-chip optical engine to deliver incredibly bright, true-to-life color.
  • Energy Efficient Light Engine: The light engine in 3LCD projectors efficiently uses available lamp light to create stunning images, projecting 25% more brightness per watt of electricity, compared to the leading competitor(2).
  • High Color Light Output: 3LCD projectors deliver high Color and White Light Output so images, video and text always look their very best.
  • No Color Wheel: 3LCD projectors do not rely on a spinning color wheel to produce color and do not suffer from "the rainbow effect" or "color break-up."
  • Road-Tested Reliability: 3LCD technology is the #1 projection technology and has consistently been the choice of users who demand long-life performance and reliability.

"After kicking off 2009 with the 20th anniversary of 3LCD, we couldn't be more proud to reach such a significant industry milestone," said Rina Bhuva, senior strategic marketing manager for 3LCD. "Our sustained success can be attributed to strong customer support, and the reliability and performance advantages of 3LCD technology continue to meet the demanding needs of projector users worldwide."
