DLP optical module manufacturers and design houses are independent, well-established companies that provide a variety of solutions and services to a worldwide customer base.

Optical module manufactures design and manufacture modules that incorporate a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD), an LED-based illumination source, and the necessary mirrors and lenses that form the core of a projection system. DLP customers can procure optical modules directly from this list of manufacturers to accelerate product development and reduce time to market.

DLP design houses provide services for customers looking for additional support, such as custom optical design, electronics design and integration, custom functionality, and manufacturing support. If your application goes beyond standard video projection, or you need help developing a prototype, DLP design houses can help you get started.
