The VP12s4 will make your jaw drop with the smoothest, most seamless and lifelike image ever delivered from a single chip solid-state video projector. First, we start with the already proven platform of Texas Instruments? HD2+ DLP? chipset. This year it has been improved by using their DarkChip 3 design, which tightens the space between the mirrors for even less pixelization than before. In addition, this chipset operates at a higher speed, reducing dither noise in low light portions of the image. As in the previous generation, it also utilizes the seven-segment color wheel which also aids in the reduction of temporal dithering. Then we add a new lens to the already legendary and award-winning lineup of optics from Konica-Minolta. This new lens is a middle throw distance lens and fits comfortably between the original standard lens (now called the Short Throw) and the Long Throw lens.
To improve flexibility we increased the amount of vertical lens shift for all three lenses to allow mounting as much as fifty percent of the screen height above the top of the viewable area. But the crowning achievement is a completely new video processing engine. This new processing chip was developed by Gennum? (specifically for the VP-12s4) and is the most powerful video processor ever included in a video display device?consumer or professional. It offers true motion adaptive deinterlacing of all non-progressive sources ? HD included ? with inverse telecine (3:2 pull down), jagged edge reduction circuitry, 4:4:4 processing at a true 10 bit color depth (over 1 billion colors displayed) and a new level of flexibility for the installer including sizing and blanking controls.
This level of smoothness and filmlike realism has been previously reserved for professional 3-chip type devices and of course, film. But reading about it here won?t do it nearly as much justice as experiencing it for yourself at your nearest authorized dealer.
