Paper Abstract

An all solid-state 1280 x 1024 laser raster scanner (LRS) system conforming to the EIA RS-343 television standard with a limiting resolution of 1300 TV lines has been developed. The laser scanner incorporates acousto-optic devices to perform video modulation and X-Y deflection and is used in a time-multiplexed mode to photoactivate three liquid crystal light valves to project full-color, video-rate, large-screen images. Analysis ofthe LRS optical system, projection optics, electronics, and light valve characteristics is presented.
