The Hisense 100L100E utilizes a Texas Instruments DLP (0.66” DMD) chip to reproduce perceived 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) resolution. I use the term “perceived” because a 4K DLP chip does not actually have 8.3 million mirrors, so the projector utilizes pixel (mirror) shifting to deliver the perceived sharpness of native 4K.
The 0.66" DLP chip has a native resolution of 2716x1528 (4.15 million) micromirrors. The response time of these micromirrors is so fast that each one can be quickly wiggled back and forth to form two separate pixels on the screen. This approach works very well because it is very difficult to see a difference in resolution when comparing a 4K DLP projector to a native 4K LCD/LCoS model.
Since the 100L10E is a single-chip DLP projector, you will never have any convergence issues that could occur with a 3LCD projector, so the image will remain sharp throughout the life of the projector without periodical adjustment. The projector can also accept signals up to 4K@60P via two 18Gbps HDMI/HDCP 2.2 Compatible Input (HDMI #1&2).
Also like all other DLP projectors, the L100L10E has a sealed light path to protect the optics from the dreaded “dust blob.” Having a sealed light path prevents particles of dust from settling inside the light path and obstructing the projected image.
