Home projector

A home projector is a projection device aimed for personal use in one's home as part of the home entertainment ecosystem. Its main role is to project on a flat surface a 2D flux received from an external device or memory. Today has also seen an increase in ultra-short throw projectors. Able to deliver a large image from a very short distance, these video projectors look quite different from traditional long-throw projectors and can fill a screen or wall of the same size from a much shorter distance.

Key Challenges

Every year projectors are becoming more and more sophisticated to rival TV sharpness, high luminosity, low latency, and high color accuracy even in relatively bright environments. If today's manufacturers wish to increase sales and gain market share, they have to provide the best user experience with fast and seamless wired and wireless connectivity. Efficient power management to improve compactness and noise reduction as well as high-performance sensors are also important for ensuring the ultimate home cinema experience. ST helps companies meet these key challenges with a wide range of innovative products:

  • High-density power drivers enable high power density with a smaller footprint for customers to save valuable board space and reduce the overall bill of materials;
  • Energy-efficient devices for a quieter cooling system essential for viewer enjoyment;
  • High-quality image processors for displaying video in various ambient light environments with an optimal screen size as well as best-in-class audio processors to ensure an immersive cinema experience
