A new optical engine for LCD rear projection HDTV has been developed using three
2.6 inch CGS(Continuous Grain Silicon) TFT LCD panels. The optical engine
realizes the brightness of 1000cd/m2 and CCR(center-corner ratio) of 80% with 60 inch condition.
This optical engine uses two UHP(Ultra High Power) lamps to fulfil enough brightness and long life. Closed cooling system has been developed to keep out the dust, and original lens has been designed by own company to get high quality image.
