With 3D grabbing the lion's share of attention LED technologies have quietly evolved and are an increasingly important part of the projector category landscape.
Wavien, Inc., a Valencia, Calif.-based video manufacturer has joined the ranks of companies that are combining what are arguably the two most impactful video technologies into a single product.
This week while exhibiting at the annual Infocomm commercial audio/video trade event in Orlando, Fla., Wavien is demonstrating a prototype 3D projector that employs its proprietary LED Recycling Technology (RLT). "Our goal is to provide a low-cost, maintenance-free 3D projection system for home and classroom uses. Wavien's RLT technology utilizes a low-cost, street-lamp type of LED, and costs are reduced even further by using large area TFT-LCD panels to simply the light engine architecture," explains Dr. Kenneth Li, President and CEO of Wavien, Inc. "The two-polarization system permits the use of low-cost, passive polarization eyeglasses, instead of expensive LCD shutter glasses. A further innovation is to project the images onto a simple metallic spray painted screen, which is polarization preserving and has high gain."
The company describes its LED 3D projector technology as a solution that combines left and right polarized images from two TFT-LCD panels that work in tandem with a reflective polarizer to project the combined images onto a polarization-preserving screen run through a single lens.
Wavien says it is currently working with Taiwanese manufacturers to handle the production of the projector. Infocomm attendees can visit Wavien at the show in booth #5283. The Infocomm show ends on June 17.
