    I play a lot of video games and I was wondering if you could burn an image in a DLP rear projection screen like you can CRT's. Thanks

    No burn-in worries with DLP. Little mirrors pivot, and the colors are created by a color wheel. Nothing to burn in. No phosphors.

    DLP's, just like LCD's and LCOS based units are extremely difficult to burn in and normal extended length gaming will not do it. You have to have to turn the brightness and contrast up to max and display a high contrast static image for very extended periods of time to cause any sort of problems.

    Actually, due to the absence of phosphor technology, they are impossible to burn. The only thing that turning up the birghtness and contrast will do is give you an overblown picture, but it won’t hurt the device (maybe your eyes). [​IMG]

    The same thing was theorized about modern LCD monitors, but people have started experiencing burn in on them as well. The problem was found mostly on units at businesses where they had a static screen for weeks on end.
