Overview

With applications in computing and video as well as in medical,industrial,and military equipment,display technology is an exciting growth area of the information revolution. Here is the first single-volume reference to cover all aspects of display technology in an easy-to-read format accessible to all those involved in the design,specification,installation,and maintenance of electronic displays. Enhanced by numerous diagrams,the book examines and explains the operating principles of CRT-based projection displays,light-valve-based projections systems,solid-state computer and video displays,the requirementss of computer imaging and the quest for higher resolution,as well as special purpose display systems and experimental devices not yet on the market. With such exciting new developments as high-definition television and holographic displays at hand,this timely resource will be in great demand.
