Researchers at the Optical Function Device Workshop at the National Institute of Technology, Sendai College, demonstrated unique screens using micro-optical elements for projection displays. The screen is a combination of directional diffused light-control film (DLC) with a micro-structured optical film. The screen directs the environment-scattered light to a direction that is different from that of the screen viewer. One is a directive screen using an array of CCR with diverted and curved surfaces (D-CCR), which reflects and scatters the light toward a certain angle: the viewer’s face. The screen has a gain of 16 and reflects extremely bright images even with small and low-power projections.
