Delta Electronics ( has completed the
development of aFull HD LED projector for the consumer market. It
sports LED optics, 1080P resolution, plus a wide color gamut. And the
life of the LED module is estimated at over 20,000 hours of normal
operation, says Jeff Fu, director for Projection Display at Delta’s
Display Solutions Business Unit.

With its experience and close partnership with Texas Instruments,
Luminus Devices and other key suppliers, Delta has a unique early
advantage in recognizing the feasibility of PhlatLight LED and the
value of LED projectors, and has commercialized this product for
customers. Delta is supporting customer demonstrations of the
projector at IFA 2008, Berlin, Germany, between Aug. 29 and Sept. 3,
and CEDIA, Denver, Colorado, USA.

The LED illumination system replaces the lamp, the color wheel and
the shutter of a traditional projector, Fu says. What is crucial is
the need for a precise and complex control algorithm that allows the
LED to work with the DMD to get high image quality, he adds.

Pricing hasn’t been announced.
