Epson and Philips Release Joint Reference Design for Personal Projector


TOKYO, Japan,-Seiko Epson Corp. (“Epson”) and Royal Philips Electronics (“Philips”) recently announced their cooperation in the field of innovative projection key modules and the immediate availability of their first joint reference design for a small and cost effective personal projector.

Unlike traditional projector designs for business and educational purpose that focus on ever increasing brightness performance, the new joint reference design is aimed at emerging segments of personal projection such as gaming, digital cameras and personal multimedia players, and powers ultra-compact projectors with stylish designs. The optimized interaction between the Philips Ujoy(R) lamp-system and the Epson HTPS 3LCD panel provides the best compromise between performance in both brightness and color-saturation and the compactness required for the personal projection segment.

“The features of our latest 0.47 inch panel make it perfectly suited for SVGA resolution, providing the benefits of a high aperture ratio, high transmittance, and high contrast all at a low cost.” said Hideaki Iwano, Chief Executive of Epson’s TFT Operations Division. “Therefore this panel is fully consistent with the requirements of a small and cost effective personal projector.” “Going forward, we at Epson are looking forward to creating a new projection market working together with Philips.”

“With the ever shrinking sizes of key-components, new application domains for projection come in reach of the consumer” said Ney Corsino, VP Marketing at Philips Digital Projection Lighting. “The use of projection in conjunction with applications as diverse as game consoles, digital cameras, PDAs and MP4 players will create new, immersive consumer viewing experiences due to the large screen size framed within small, stylish and portable devices. Our Ujoy(R) lighting system is a very compact, low-power light source based on the well-known Philips innovative UHP(R) technology and is specifically designed for these applications,” he added.
