Digital Light Programming DLP (digital light programming), developed by Texas Instruments for digital projection, is the most common form of projection today. DLP projectors use metal halide arc lamps, either in mercury vapour or in inert noble gas tubes, with infra-red reflective surfaces to concentrate heat at the tips of the arc itself, where the intense light is produced, advancing on but sharing the same fundamental design as the old carbon and xenon arc lamps. This lamp is designed to produce light at as many visible wavelengths as possible; that is, to give the closest technically available approximation to pure white.

What About Displays? I do not use display device differences as part of the Marble sculpting 3D 3 continuous interactive Volumetric sculpting 3D 3 discrete interactive Animation program (3+1)D 4 continuous interactive A Taxonomy and Genealogy of Digital Light-Based Technologies 29 taxonomy. For example, whether display is via transmission or via reflection is not used, or whether the display uses additive colour or subtractive colour. Why is that? We certainly spent years mastering different display devices, but in retrospect that was part of the old, pre-convergence era.
