Paper Abstract

An overview of recent advancement in digitally controlled vector scanned laser graphics (VSLG) is presented in this paper. Our new experimental full color projector, TOPA, is used as an example in discussing digital processes starting from artwork to finished program material. All the control nodes are digital in origin, thus such a system being naturally conducive to precise image and color manipulations. Many additional advantages are derivable in terms of programmability and editability, freedom from noise susceptibility, synchronization of program material to music and other media, long term data storage, and remote data updating of whole or partial program material.
