Paper Abstract

Large rear-screen TV projection systems are typically enclosed in a large box. To reduce the volume of the box two mirror folds have been used. A new wide angle lens covering a 70-degree field has been developed which further reduces the volume, yet only requires one mirror. The design evolved from the earlier design types, having a relatively weak first group, a strong positive second group, and a negative field flattener. It is dependent upon the use of aspherical surfaces, having no analogous all-spherical type.
