Direct View Displays: Is this the end of projectors?
BIG SCREEN EXPERIENCE
17 Sep 2017
Since the beginning of movie theaters, projectors have evolved from carbon arc lamps, through xenon and high-pressure mercury, to fully digital projectors using laser illumination. But now a new approach is being explored – a direct-view emissive display using an array of millions of RGB LEDs. These giant LED displays hold the promise of extraordinary dynamic range and the ability to display a stunning picture even in moderate ambient light. This session will review the evolving technology that makes direct-view displays feasible for movie auditorium, as well as the challenges that face such a fundamental shift in motion-picture image technology.
