Abstract: DLP projection owns the Digital Cinema with over 160K systems installed. However, the future is changing and LED Displays will provide to the entertainment viewers, the greatest image experience ever seen. What changes? Expect minimum of 4K resolution everywhere. Peak luminance (Lv) will move from current 14ftL (48 nits) to 500 nits. Contrast ratios will approach a true 1 million:1; minimal gray levels at 0.001nits. HDR becomes reality; not the current limited EDR. Visual solutions for specular highlights become a reality. Color palette can now increase beyond DCI-P3. A revolution for Digital Cinema and e-entertainment is coming. In this presentation, we will present arguments to validate this view of the future and discuss the NanoLumen’s technical approach to achieving this goal.
