VP-11S1: For True Home Theater Aficionados
The VP-11S1, a single-chip DLP Projector featuring full upconversion capability for all video sources to 1080p HD resolution, delivers image quality previously unavailable in anything but the highest-priced professional projectors, including full uncompressed HDTV 1920×1080 pixel resolution for incredibly realistic, detailed and lifelike images — virtually indistinguishable from film quality. For true home theater aficionados, the VP-11S1 includes a Vertical Stretch mode that eliminates the black borders on widescreen movies when viewed on a 2.35:1 screen. Key to the VP-11S1’s unprecedented image reproduction capabilities is the inclusion of Texas Instruments’ first true 1080p HD chip, which dramatically increases the pixel count of previous 720p chips to over 2 million pixels.
