Paper Abstract

A multimode liquid crystal large screen display system under development promises improved display imaging for fleet command, shipboard information centers, and related tactical data systems. Multimode technology combines monochromatic television with multi-color graphics for visual effect enhancement. The system employs a liquid crystal light valve (LCLV)--an optical birefringent and reflective liquid crystal device--which rotates polarized light during image generation. The LCLV voltage is CRT controlled to induce sufficient birefringence effect to disperse polarized white light. The result is the generation of different colors, so that a multicolor display is created simultaneously with a monochrome television image.
