DLP award

caution - this is a shameless ad

nav_logo_dlp.gifFor those who don't know what I do for a living (when I'm not fighting to live), I design digital video projection systems at TI. Our brand is called DLP and we are celebrating today for receiving our second Technology Emmy last night. This is the nerd version of the regular Emmy. So if you've got $3000 to blow on watching television (an activity Frank Lloyd Wright once called "bubble gum for the brain"), then you won't find a better television to buy than ours. Right now, Samsung is our leading producer for television sets.

If you like going out to the movies instead, you may be able to watch our technology at work at a local theater that supports our digital projection. To find out, enter your zip code at our DLP Cinema web site.

Hey Greg,
Your Dad wants to know if all this DLP stuff means that he can now get a color TV?
Glad you still have your sense of humor.
God Bless..........

Don’t know if you’ve come across this before, but it’s an interesting non-commercial application of some of the concepts you guys developed into DMD/DLP.
An artist has created a wooden mirror. One immediately assumes that a wooden surface has been highly polished to reflect light directly. Rather, the idea is that he produces a low-resolution, grayscale moving image from the input of a miniature videocamera mounted in the center of the mirror. Wooden tiles reflect ambient light in varying intensities to compose the image.
High-tech or low-tech? We report; you decide.
Kudos on your team’s reaching this milestone. Sounds like it’s been a long time coming.

What a journey you have been on! I don't know you, but am your sister in Christ. I came across your web page while doing a search for iron transfussions for my sister. I pray that God will continue to be with you and your family. I know His hand has been on you through your ordeal even in the darkest of times. I will continue to pray for you and your health.
