DLP4710: Can DLP DMD act as an optical shutter for a higher resolution image?

Part Number: DLP4710

What we want to essentially do is have a DLP4710 in an image plane of an 8K by 4K image and use the DMD to selectively block parts of the original image. I don't see why this wouldn't be possible as each micromirror is still just a mirror and if facing the other way will be blocking that part (4x4 pixel grid) of the original image. However I do see an issue due to the gaps between the pixels and diffraction from the DMD.

Those involved with the DLP development and aware of the unique features of this system, can you give us suggestion if what we want is possible, what we should and shouldn't expect to work and what potential issues?

Thank you.
