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. Wiley SID Series in Display Technology The Society for Information Display (SID) is an international society which has the aim of encouraging the development of all aspects of the field of information display. Complementary to the aims of the society the Wiley-SID series is intended to explain the latest developments in information display technology at a professional level. The broad scope of the series addresses all facets of information displays from technical aspects through systems and prototypes to standards and ergonomics.
