DLP Not Really 1080p?

Filed under HDTV

I wrote previously how I noticed a DLP set was shaving pixels off the sides so it wasn't showing a full picture.

It appears that none of the DLP sets are actually 1080p. The DLP chip they use only has a resolution of 960x1080. It uses a technique called "wobulation" to allow each mirror to address 2 pixels. I'm wondering if a technical limitation of wobulation is the reason why the edges are cropped.

This makes me a bit worried about DLP. I am now leaning more towards the 2nd generation Sony SXRD.

Here is a nice write up on the current state of HD TV's. There is mention in this power point presentation that all 1080p DLP sets are really using 960x1080 DLP chips.

I recently bought a Panasonic 42 inch HDTV and am very happy with it. It was rated highest by Consumer Reports. Now I'm upgrading to the Dish Network high end HD/DVR receiver. Can't wait!
