Appendix: Glossary

ANSI LumensA standard for measuring light output, used for comparing projectors. 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 RatioThe 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. Consists of the luminance signal and two separate chrominance signals 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 greater 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 41

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.

HDMI— High Definition Multimedia Interface, carry both uncompressed high definition video along with digital audio and device control data in a single connector.

Hz — Hertz, unit of 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.

Laser pointer— A small pen or cigar sized pointer that contains small battery powered laser, which can project small, red (typically), highly 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.

Minimum Distance— The closest position that a projector can focus an image onto a screen.

NTSC— National Television Standards Committee. North American standard for video and broadcasting, with a video format of 525 lines at 30 frames per second.

PAL— Phase Alternating Line. A European broadcast standard for video and broadcasting, with a video format of 625 lines at 25 frames per second.

42 Glossary

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, closely related to PAL but with a different method of sending color information.

SVGA— Super Video Graphics Array— 800 x 600 pixels count.

SXGA— Super Extended 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.

WXGA— Wide Extended Graphics Array—1280x800 pixels count.

XGA— Extended 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.
