Paper Abstract

Holographic surface relief screens for use in either front or rear projection TV systems offer significant advantages due to light weight, easily sculpted viewing area, high contrast and gain. Produced by the holographic construction of randomized refractive structures, there is no possibility of moire effects and due to the micron size features are perfectly adapted for very high resolution. When operated in white light there is no color fringing. Reflective and transmission screens have been produced with application specific viewing angles ranging from `privacy' screens with 20 degree(s) circular to 100 degree(s) X 30 degree(s) elliptical. Reflection screens have been produced up to 12 ft X 9 ft by tiling smaller holograms with near invisible seams. Work is underway to produce single component rear projection screens with full `Fresnel' correction and contrast control.
