Abstract: front page image
(EN)A projector system includes an imaging device operable to direct light to a reflective screen, and an active light steering element placed in the light path between the imaging device and the screen. The steering element is operable to sequentially scan the light across the screen. The steering element may be used to temporally multiplex images at different viewpoints. The steering element enables trade-offs to be made between spatial, temporal, color and/or viewpoint resolutions of the images displayed by the imaging device.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système de projecteur comprenant un dispositif imageur conçu pour diriger la lumière sur un écran réfléchissant, et un élément actif de direction de la lumière disposé dans le trajet de la lumière entre le dispositif imageur et l'écran. L'élément de direction permet de scanner séquentiellement la lumière à travers l'écran ; il peut s'utiliser pour multiplexer temporairement des images à des points de vue différents. Il rend possible des compromis entre des résolutions spatiales, temporelles, de couleur et/ou de points de vue des images affichées par le dispositif imageur.
