Paper Abstract

We describe a novel optical architecture for a LCoS binocular virtual display which, for the first time, meets or exceeds market leading pSi headset performance. A key component of the optical system is the frontlight illumination, which affords system specifications such a 36 degree field of view, a contrast of 80:1, and no IPD adjustment necessary (12 mm pupil). We detail the frontlight design and development, and its interaction with the complete electro-optical module.
