Tutorial: Introduction to Building Projection-based Tiled Display Systems
July/August 2000 (vol. 20 no. 4)
pp. 22-28
This tutorial introduces the concepts and technologies needed to build projector-based display systems. The motivations for constructing tiled displays are many. Some applications are limited by the resolution of today's single displays. Other applications invite a large-format display with high resolution per unit area. Still others would benefit from embedding the display in the working environment so that the display becomes an extension of the traditional desktop display environment. Tiled displays offer scalability, high resolution, and large formats for various applications.
