1 August 1991 Developments in projection lenses for HDTV
Author Affiliations +
Recent focus on the development of HDTV systems worldwide has raised a critical concern--the economic viability of HDTV for the home marketplace. While projection systems performing at or above HDTV-quality levels exist today, they are designed for the institutional market and are priced far above the threshold for the individual consumer. Manufacturers will be under considerable pressure to significantly reduce the cost of HDTV projectors, as will the suppliers of key components such as lenses. Fortunately, recent developments have been made in the design, development and manufacturing technologies used to produce hybrid lenses for high-performance projection systems. This is particularly true for CRT-based front- and rear-projection systems for data and graphics applications. Extending these advances to HDTV would suggest that by the time HDTV is ready for high volume mass production, cost-effective projection lenses will be enhancing, not retarding, the market acceptance of HDTV.
