Next Generation Front Projection Screens

Grant number: LP0776950 | Funding period: 2007 - 2011



Consumer electronics is a huge international market and home theatre is one of the most rapidly growing sectors. A critical part of the home theatre system is the projection screen, an area of technology that has seen only incremental development over the last fifty years, or so. In this project we will take some advanced design concepts developed at the University of Melbourne for laser technology and adapt them to the development of novel approaches to improving the brightness and resolution of projection screens. The project will look at the design process and address the manufacturing challenges for novel projection screen technology.
