    As Texas Instruments announced the commencement of shipments of 1080P DLP chips to customers on the 11 Apr 2005, how long do people think before Sim2 launch any 1080P products?

    "Dallas, TX, Apr. 11, 2005: Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN) today announced that its 1920 x 1080 high-definition (HD) resolution DLP TV technology has been fully qualified and is in production shipment to customers. DLP TVs are expected to be the first volume 1080p TVs available on the U.S. market, with affordable 1080p DLP TVs scheduled to be at retail as early as July."

    This statement relates to DLP TV products and not Front Projection, I'm afraid I cannot give you anymore info at this time.

    Is this chip actually high definition? I heard a story a while back about a new chip that 'wobbles' many times a second to create the illusion of a high def chip?
    If so, it might explain why they aren't yet prepared to implement in a projector where any associated artifacts would be far more obvious.

    I don't know, just asking the question?

    There is a 'wobulation' chip that's designed (so far) for rear projection only. The array is diagonal rather than square IIRC. I'm sure that a genuine 1080 DMD is not far off though.

    That's not what I've heard Gary. Apparently TI are having a hard time finding enough employees with a steady enough hand to glue on those 2 million,seventy three thousand and six hundred mirrors on each chip :D
