Greenlight Optics Standard DLP Engines



The GLOBEAM DPM4501 and DPM6501 projection engine platform delivers high brightness and high resolution in an efficient, compact package. Thanks to precise engineering and proprietary design, the DPM4501 provides exceptional performance with on axis projection and the ability to customize with different LED light sources (including UV, VIS, and NIR), projection lenses, and mounting options. With our electronics partners, Greenlight can offer a complete solution. DLP reliability, all metal case, and solid engineering ensures long life in a variety of industrial and professional applications. The DPM4501 platform is a single illumination channel engine based on the TI .45 WXGA DMD and the DPM6501 platform is a single illumination channel based on the TI .65 1080p DMD. 2 channel and 3 channel illumination versions are also possible.

Compact: Leveraging picoprojector opto-mechanical design experience

Efficient and Bright: Advanced optical design, coated optics, world class LED partners

High Resolution: 1280 X 800 diamond pixel or true 1920 X 1080 square pixel

Cost-Effective: Well suited for Low (10s-100s) and Mid (1000s) volume manufacturing

Customizable: The DPM4501 and DPM6501 engine platform is created to enable the rapid and cost effective adoption of DLP/LED Projection technology in new applications. By starting with the DPM4501 or DPM6501 baseline engine and customizing the LED, Projection Lens, and mechanical integration, customers can achieve optimized performance and compact size without paying for a full custom engine development program.
