CES represents the first public technology demonstration of the latest HD4 DLP, DarkChip3, and SmoothPicture technology from Texas Instruments, delivering the world’s finest HDTV projection images to date. The HD504 projects a superior 2500:1 contrast ratio with a native resolution of 720p for a film-quality HD image, on a non-reflective, fine-grade screen. The latest technology available from Texas Instruments achieves both higher brightness and deeper black levels by “filling in” the area where the digital micro mirror connects to its hinge — the so-called “dimple.” In addition the gap between the mirrors has been further reduced and the backing to the mirrors has become more light absorbent.

The HD504 measures only 14.8-inches deep and weighs only 90 pounds.
