From high-tech entertainment to video conferencing and presentations, the applications of electronic projection are escalating. This comprehensive reference encompasses projector components, subsystems and systems.

Features include:
  • Review of the applications, markets and market forecasts for projection displays
  • Focus on subsystems and components of the light engine of projection systems, including discussions of image-generating components, lenses, filters and lamps, as well as projection screens
  • Examination of the advantages and disadvantages of a variety of projector architectures, including projectors based on emissive image-generating components, light-valves and light-amplifiers
  • Models for predicting the performance of light-valve projectors
  • Section on display characteristics including measurement of the parameters used to distinguish between projection display products from different manufacturers
