Paper Abstract

Display systems usually have the maximum and minimum luminance and minimum uniformity specified. The System Engineer then takes the figures and allocates them to the subsystems, such as the Lamp, Lamp Drive, Diffuser, Optical Cavity and Liquid Crystal Display Addressed Cell Assembly (ACA). Assumptions are made in the allocations that are occasionally incorrect, leading to the inability of the system to meet all the requirements. This paper investigates the issues related to luminance range and uniformity, and puts forth equations to use in the subsystem design that will allow the designer to achieve full system performance in luminance range issues and to make the measured uniformity more meaningful.
