40.2: Sequential Color Recapture and Dynamic Filtering: A Method of Scrolling Color
Scrolling color has long been a goal of the projector industry, as it enables the most efficient use of light in a single panel display. Current methods of implementing scrolling color use the techniques of splitting the light into primary colors, and manipulating that light on the modulator. The authors present the techniques of dynamic filtering and sequential color recapture (SCR) to achieve the same result with no moving components other than a color wheel, showing that the efficiency of 3- modulator systems can be approached with one modulator. Analysis of the technique applied to DLPTM projection displays, and results of prototype projection systems using the techniques, will be presented.
