Texas Instruments announces new brighter, smaller, power-savvier pico projector technology for smart
Having a pico projector built-in a tablet or a smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy Beam opens a world of possibilities and for the first time this past year we got to see mass market devices with projectors start to arrive, but with this new breakthrough in pico projector design we wouldn’t be surprised to see a projector become a more common feature in our devices and not the rarity it is today.

Texas Instruments has just unveiled its brand new DLP Pico chip architecture that will allow brighter, tinier and more power efficient projectors in devices.

The new architecture is called Tilt & Roll Pixel, or TRP, and comes with promises for 30% brighter output, 50% less power consumption and 2 times the resolution at a same size chip.

If we look at what we have in smartphones today, the Galaxy Beam, the only mass market device with a built-in projector, features a 15-lumen projector that lasts around three hours. Chinese white box makers have also started releasing tablets with similar projectors.

TI is saying devices like smartphones, tablets, cameras/camcorders, notebooks, eyewear, and standalone devices could all benefit from this new technology, and we can only keep our fingers cross to see more devices with projectors arrive sooner rather than later.
