DVI Inputs All-digital connections that carry high-resolution video signals from a source (such as a set-top box or a DVD player) to an HDTV or HD monitor. Some DVI connections support HDCP to allow the transmission of copy-protected high-definition content.
DLP DLP® projection technology from Texas Instruments brings exciting possibilities to the world of HDTVs. DLP (short for Digital Light Processing) combines extraordinary performance and unprecedented reliability in big-screen displays that are surprisingly affordable.
The all-digital DLP chip, packed with millions of microscopic mirrors, delivers a precise, lifelike picture with vibrant colors and an extremely high contrast ratio — crisper whites, deeper blacks and images that pop. HDTVs powered by this technology are ideal for sports, action-packed scenes and gaming, because of the chip's ultrafast response time.
The unique design of the DLP engine also makes it relatively impervious to heat, humidity and vibration, so its clarity and color accuracy remain consistent and reliable over years of use. Unlike some competing technologies, DLP doesn't suffer from screen burn-in. This means no worries of video game images and network logos becoming permanently imprinted as ghost images on the screen.
