As display technology becomes ever more sophisticated, demand for projection systems is booming. 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. The broad coverage includes an examination of the relative merits of the different technologies available and an outline of the underlying principles and practical limitations in the design of a new display projector. 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
  • An extensive glossary of projection-related terms and acronyms
Projection scientists, engineers and technicians working in the field will value this unique resource as will managers wishing to understand projection displays for the purpose of specification and procurement.
