Paper Abstract

We investigate aspects of the design of a large area display based on seamless tiling of Photoluminescent LCD (PL-LCD) panels. This paper discusses and illustrates the design methodology involved in optically tiling PL-LCD panels to make arbitrarily large displays. Suitable magnification, image quality and throw were achieved through optimization of the front-face optical system. In addition, active and passive-matrix drive schemes were investigated with regard to the throughput, contrast-ratio and video-rate performance.
