3LCD Hits the 70 Million Chip Mark

Posted Thu Feb 10, 2011 at 11:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

It's the first projector technology to make it to 70 million - not bad as far as bragging rights go.

3LCD was introduced back in 1988 and it's been going strong ever since. Incredibly strong in fact. As of the end of 2010, 3LCD is officially the most popular projector technology in the world, with over 70 million chips shipped.

"This past year has been extremely active and exciting for us," says Rina Bhuva of 3LCD, "and we had the opportunity to make a number of major innovation announcements." Bhuva says that 3LCD isn't going anywhere thanks to new methods and technologies.

"Earlier this year," says Bhuva, "we announced the world's first 3LCD LED projector and world's first Reflective HTPS liquid crystal chip for 3LCD, and this shipping milestone of 70 million chips is another testament to the support of our manufacturers and customers, without which we could not continue to thrive."
