Texas Instruments (TI) announced plans for the next generation DLP Cinema electronics platform. Scheduled to be released by the end of 2009, the next generation electronics platform for DLP Cinema projectors will be deployed by its three OEM licensees–Christie, Barco, and NEC–at commercial theatres worldwide beginning in 2010.

DLP Cinema's next generation electronics platform is compliant with a newly adopted set of Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) standards. The next generation electronics platform uses the same DLP Cinema chipset but integrates high security requirements and a specification architecture defined by the DCI, while providing a cost reduction OEM partners, according to TI.

The platform delivers value by combining the three boards needed to produce images into a single board while retaining the necessary functionality for use. Additionally, the next generation DLP Cinema electronics platform features increased bandwidth to integrate alternative content to incorporate live 3D broadcasting.

"The next generation DLP Cinema electronics platform will continue to deliver the ultimate movie-going experience with precise images in vibrant colors," said Nancy Fares, business manager for DLP Cinema Products Group, in a statement. "DLP Cinema is proud to support the motion picture industry and is dedicated to developing products and innovations to enhance the movie-going experience throughout the years to come."

According to the company, the increasing availability of 3D digital movies continues to serve as a catalyst for adoption of digital cinema installations.

Not all projector manufacturers license TI's DLP Cinema technology, which can limit their use in some applications. To learn more read PRO AV's story about it.
