Abstract : Progress is reported on the development of a feasibility model of large screen, matrix controlled display device using in-air surface deformation recording the TIRP (Total Internal Reflection Prism) projection techniques. Results of in-air recording tests on a deformable medium of thermoplastic and oil are discussed. It is shown that writing rates of 100 microseconds per line are achievable with in-air thermoplastic recording. Problems in thermoplastic development and reuseability are discussed. It is shown that in-air recording can be controlled by and X-Y matrix. A modification to the TIRP optical system, required to provide individual display elements with oil recording, is discussed.
