Luminus’ PhlatLight LEDs power BenQ pocket projector

Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA says that BenQ’s new GP1 versatile and lightweight pocket projector is powered by its high-brightness PhlatLight LED PT-39 chipset. The firm claims that its PhlatLight (Photonic Lattice) LEDs offer high levels of brightness and performance that are currently not available in pocket projectors using traditional lamp technologies.

PhlatLight LEDs work in conjunction with Texas Instruments’ digital light processing (DLP) technology, and the combined technologies enable PhlatLight to work more efficiently, making the projector suitable for business travelers and other mobile system users (e.g. gamers). The PT-39 chipset is designed specifically for projection systems that use micro-displays ranging from 0.4” to 0.55” with individual red, green and blue LEDs.

“BenQ is revolutionizing the pocket projector industry, and award-winning PhlatLight LEDs are a key in providing our customers with the industry’s best products,” says Po Su, marketing director at BenQ America. “Our next-generation pocket projectors are flexible, making them ideal for multiple applications like home movies and gaming, as well as meeting room demos and mobile business presentations.”
