Abstract:

This report provides quantitative data on performance characteristics of light valve projectors in simulator displays as well as in optimal laboratory conditions. Two types of light valve projectors are discussed a single light- valve projector also called Talaria and a multiple light-valve projector. The data show that a these projectors do not achieve brightnesses above the mesopic level in large-screen simulator displays, b color output includes a dark-field haze which must be dealt with like ambient illumination, and c lightdark ratios LD above 51 are obtainable only when the light region is white or yellow-green. Keywords Chromaticity Contrast Display systems Flight simulation Light modulators Light-valve projector Luminance Mesopic vision Modulation transfer function Resolution Optical properties.
