Three-Chip Projector

Projectors employing a three-chip design use a prism to split light from the lamp. Each primary color (red, green and blue) of light is then routed to its own Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) chip. The colors are recombined and routed out through the lens.

Contrast with single-chip projector which uses a single DMD.
