3D compatible for any source or signal format

DLP projector SmartSource 3D advantage

With the introduction of the latest TI DLP® chipset called DDP442x, you can transmit from any source - a computer, set-top box, game console, Blu-ray player or smartphone - to your projector. In the home, DLP SmartSource 3D projectors are compatible with HDTV broadcasts and high-definition DVD's for exceptional detail and clarity.

Most important, you can display any video source, including HDMI v1.4a and VGA. You will be amazed with the life-like images exploding off your home theater screen. Basically, a DLP projector has the capability to easily show any 3D content on the big screen.

Benefits of 3D in the classroom

In the classroom, studies have shown that students that engage in 3D lessons will benefit academically, especially in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields.1 Starting in 2009, DLP products and educators conducted educational pilot programs in several parts of the world. At the end, these studies have shown that:

  1. 3D increases academic impact, especially in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics
  2. 3D is proven to engage students in the lesson
  3. 3D provides another option for teachers to perform their job better

Millions of DLP 3D projectors already shipped

Since 2009, DLP brands have been shipping 3D projectors in almost all of their product lines. DLP SmartSource 3D is available in many options and popular resolutions like SVGA, XGA, WXGA, and 1080p, including various lens throw configurations such as standard, short-throw, and ultra-short throw.

Nothing beats the big-screen experience of 3D in the classroom, office or home through a DLP SmartSource 3D projector. Another reason DLP technology is the world's leading projection technology.
