EngadgetHD is reporting about this tiny new chip from JVC, “for use in projectors that offer up more than four times high-definition resolution.”
The company says that its device can find a perfect niche in medical visualization:
The 4K2K D-ILA device offers the world’s largest number of pixels, 4096 x 2400 — about ten megapixels — and a high 20,000:1 contrast ratio, providing images at an unparalleled resolution.
“Introduction of a 4K2K device this small is truly a breakthrough in the industry and a much needed technology,” said Jack Faiman, vice president of JVC’s display division. “An extremely high contrast ratio provides the stability and resolution needed in crucial applications such as flight simulators and robotic surgery.”
In the medical device industry, the high native contrast, accurate grayscale gradations, and unmatched resolution of JVC’s 4K2K D-ILA technology, will allow systems that have been traditionally film-based to migrate to digital technology. This is especially important in medical education, and robotic surgery.
