Direct View Displays: Is this the end of projectors?

BIG SCREEN EXPERIENCE
Map Pointer Icon Auditorium
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.
