Glossary
ANSI Lumens—A standard for measuring light output, used for comparing
projectors.
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.
Backlit (Backlight)—Refers to a remote control, or a projector control panel, that
has buttons and controls that are illuminated.
Bandwidth—The number of cycles per second (Hertz) expressing the difference
between the lower and upper limiting frequencies of a frequency band; also, the
width of a band of frequencies.
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—A method of measuring the whiteness of a light source.
Metal halide lamps have a higher temperature compared to halogen or
incandescent lights.
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—The combined picture signal, including vertical and
horizontal blanking and synchronizing signals.
Compression—A function that deletes resolution lines from the image to fit in
the display area.
Compressed SVGA—To project an 800x600 image to a VGA projector, the
original 800x600 signal must be compressed down. The data displays all the
information with only two thirds of the pixels (307,000 vs 480,000). The resulting
image is SVGA page size but sacrifices some of the image quality. If you are using
an SVGA computers, connecting VGA to a VGA projector provide better results.
Compressed SXGA—Found on XGA projectors, compressed SXGA handling
allows these projectors to handle up to 1280x1024 SXGA resolution.
Compressed XGA—Found on SVGA projectors, compressed XGA handling allows
these projectors to handle 1024x768 XGA resolution.

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.
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—DMD — Digital Micro-mirror Device — Each DMD consists of
thousands of tilting, microscopic aluminum alloy mirrors mounted on a hidden
yoke.
DVI—Digital Visual Interface — Defines the digital interface between digital
devices such as projectors and personal computers. For devices that support DVI,
a digital to digital connection can be made that eliminates the conversion to
analog and thereby delivers an unblemished image.
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.
Hz—Frequency of an alternating signal. See Frequency.
Keystone Correction—Device that will correct an image of the distortion(usually
a wide-top narrow-bottom effect) of a projected image caused by improper
projector to screen angle.
58
Glossary
Laser Pointer—A small pen or cigar-sized pointer, that contains a small battery
powered laser, which can project a small, red (typically), high intensity beam of
light that is immediately very visible on the screen.
Maximum Distance—The distance from a screen the projector can be to cast an
image that is useable (bright enough) in a fully darkened room.
Maximum Image Size—The largest image a projector can throw in a darkened
room. This is usually limited by focal range of the optics.
Metal Halide Lamp—The type of lamp used in many medium and all high end
portable projectors. These lamps typically have a "half-life" of 1000-2000 hours.
That is they slowly lose intensity (brightness) as they are used, and at the "half-life"
point, they are half as bright as when new. These lamps output a very "hot"
temperature light, similar to mercury vapor lamps used in street lights. Their
whites are extremely white (with a slight bluish cast) and make a halogen lamp's
whites look very yellowish by comparison.
Minimum Distance—The closest position that a projector can focus an image
onto a screen.
NTSC—The United States broadcast standard for video and broadcasting.
PAL—A European and international broadcast standard for video and
broadcasting. Higher resolution than NTSC.
Power Zoom—A zoom lens with the zoom in and out controlled by a motor,
usually adjusted from the projector's control panel and also the remote control.
Reverse Image—Feature that allows you to flip the image horizontally. When
used in a normal forward projection environment text, graphics, etc, are
backwards. Reverse image is used for rear projection.
RGB—Red, Green, Blue — typically used to describe a monitor that requires
separate signals for each of the three colors.
S-Video—A video transmission standard that uses a 4 pin mini-DIN connector to
send video information on two signal wires called luminance (brightness, Y) and
chrominance (color, C). S-Video is also referred to as Y/C.
SECAM—A French and international broadcast standard for video and
broadcasting. Higher resolution than NTSC.
SVGA—Super Video Graphics Array — 800 x 600 pixels count.
SXGA—Super Ultra Graphics Array, — 1280 x 1024 pixels count.
UXGA—Ultra Extended Graphics Array — 1600 x 1200 pixels count.

VGA—Video Graphics Array — 640 x 480 pixels count.
XGA—Extra Video Graphics Array — 1024 x 768 pixels count.
Zoom Lens—Lens with a variable focal length that allows operator to move the
view in or out making the image smaller or larger.
Zoom Lens Ratio—Is the ratio between the smallest and largest image a lens can
projector from a fixed distance. For example, a 1.4:1 zoom lens ratio means that a
10-foot image without zoom would be a 14-foot image with full zoom.
