Large screen television displays have been developed for use in stadiums, aircraft simulators,
and large auditoriums. Electronic display of these images will become even more widespread
with the introduction of high definition television. Consumer applications of HDTV require a
large (about 3' x 5 1/3') bright display at a relatively low cost. This paper will discuss the
properties of commercially available large screen television displays and evaluate the options
for the new technologies that could satisfy the requirements of the future applications.
