Philips and Optoma demonstrated Philips’ new ColorSpark High Lumen Density (HLD) LED projection technology on the Optoma booth at InfoComm. Justin Halls, Head of Product Marketing at Optoma explained: “We are delighted to unveil a prototype projector that harnesses the new Philips ColorSpark HLD LED technology. This technology will enable a new generation of far brighter LED DLP projectors with industry leading colour performance and accuracy. Optoma HLD LED projectors will be able to render larger screen sizes in normal ambient light conditions with outstanding image quality enabling them to compete with flat screen displays.
“Current LED technology offers consistent brightness and exceptional colour performance, while maintaining its out-of-the-box image quality throughout its lifetime. HLD adds three times higher screen brightness and improved colour reproduction.”
Jan-Willem Andriesse, Product Marketing Manager from Philips said: “Despite the variety of SSL technologies, penetration of 1000+ lumen front projectors has been limited to less than a five percent volume share for several years. Clearly the market is struggling to find the right SSL technology for the mainstream segments. On the one hand LED based projectors are not able to reach sufficient brightness levels and on the other hand Laser-hybrid and Laser-phosphor have been struggling to find a good price-performance ratio. HLD and the products it will enable, is the solution the market has been looking for.”
