Carl Zeiss Projector is breathtaking, 2.5 million to 1 contrast

Daniel Lim - Sep 25, 2008

Is Texas Instrument cooking up some DLP panels beyond imagination and no one knows about it? I ran across Zeiss website and saw this – A Powerdom VELVET projector with unheard of Contrast 2,500,000 : 1, that’s a astounding 2.5 million to 1 contrast ratio! They claimed the world’s first and only video projection system with an absolutely black backdrop, and it’s based on TI’s BrilliantColor DLP technology.

The specification also revealed its In-house designed Zeiss’s optics with Digigon 80 Vario, WXUGA resolution of 1920×1200 and extended color gamut with 30 bits color depth processing. No pricing detail but it will be available in the beginning of 2009. Step aside, Barco or CRT for that matter. Zeiss is coming to town!
