A continuous matrix liquid crystal display (LCD) system for presenting dynamic in-formation and animated graphics to large audiences is described. The advantages of low cost, low power, light weight, flatness and high reliability make LCD's well suited for large public information display systems. The system described is assembled by stacking standard modules in both X and Y directions. Each module is an 8 x 12 array of individual LCD light valves. The modules can be readily assembled into custom sized systems.
