TI expects shipments of DLP 3D Ready chips to reach 2-3 million units in 2011
According an article from Digitimes, Texas Instruments (TI) vice president of DLP business Kent Novak at a conference has commented that the company's shipments of DLP 3D Ready chips will increase to 2-3 million units in 2011, and the company already shipped over 300,000 from the fourth quarter of 2009 to the first quarter of 2010.
Global front projector shipments in 2010 are expected to reach 7.3 million units, and to 8.1 million units in 2011, according to data from PMA. TI's DLP chips will account for 50% of the global projector market in 2010, which will be about 3.65 million units in shipments, PMA data showed.
With TI's DLP 3D Ready chip, 3D images can be displayed by a single projector, TI noted, adding that in traditional 3D projection systems, two projectors are required to display a 3D image.
TI is also eyeing the education market for 3D projectors and is cooperating with Discovery Education, Safari Montage, Eon Reality and NeoTech for content development, TI said.
