Appendix: Glossary
ANSI Lumens—A standard for measuring the brightness. It is calculated by dividing a
square meter image into nine equal rectangles, measuring the lux (or brightness)
reading at the center of each rectangle, and averaging these nine points.
Aspect Ratio—The most popular aspect ratio is 4:3 (4 by 3). Early television and
computer video formats are in a 4:3 aspect ratio, which means that the width of the
image is 4/3 times the height.
Brightness—The amount of light emitting from a display or projection display or
projection device. The brightness of projector is measured by ANSI lumens.
Color Temperature— The color appearance of white light. Low color temperature
implies warmer (more yellow/red) light while high color temperature implies a colder
(more blue) light. The standard unit for color temperature is Kelvin (K).
Component Video—A method of delivering quality video in a format that contains all
the components of the original image. These components are referred to as luma and
chroma and are defined as Y'Pb'Pr' for analog component and Y'Cb'Cr' for digital
component. Component video is available on DVD players and projectors.
Composite Video—A video signal that combines the luma (brightness), chroma
(color), burst (color reference), and sync (horizontal and vertical synchronizing
signals) into a signal waveform carried on a single wire pair. There are three kind of
formats, namely, NTSC, PAL and SECAM.
Compressed Resolution—If the input images are of higher resolution than the native
resolution of the projector, the resulting image will be scaled to fit the native
resolution of the projector. The nature of compression in a digital device means that
some image content is lost.
Contrast Ratio—Range of light and dark values in a picture, or the ratio between their
maximum and minimum values. There are two methods used by the projection
industry to measure the ratio:
1 Full On/Off — measures the ratio of the light output of an all white image (full on)
and the light output of an all black (full off) image.
2 ANSI — measures a pattern of 16 alternating black and white rectangles. The average
light output from the white rectangles is divided by the average light output of the
black rectangles to determine the ANSI contrast ratio.
Full On/Off contrast is always a larger number than ANSI contrast for the same
projector.
Glossary

dB—decibel—A unit used to express relative difference in power or intensity, usually
between two acoustic or electric signals, equal to ten times the common logarithm of
the ratio of the two levels.
Diagonal Screen—A method of measuring the size of a screen or a projected image. It
measures from one corner to the opposite corner. A 9ft high, 12ft wide, screen has a
diagonal of 15ft. This document assumes that the diagonal dimensions are for the
traditional 4:3 ratio of a computer image as per the example above.
DLP®—Digital Light Processing — Reflective display technology developed by Texas
Instruments, using small manipulated mirrors. Light passes through a color filter is
sent to the DLP mirrors which arrange the RGB colors into a picture projected onto
screen, also known as DMD.
DMD—Digital Micro-Mirror Device — Each DMD consists of thousands of tilting,
microscopic aluminum alloy mirrors mounted on a hidden yoke.
Focal Length—The distance from the surface of a lens to its focal point.
Frequency— It is the rate of repetition in cycles per seconds of electrical signals.
Measured in Hz (Hertz).
Hz (Hertz)—Unit of frequency.
