The popularity of today's flat-panel liquid-crystal and plasma TV displays shows that emerging trends favor large-screen displays. Another display type may soon conquer the entertainment market, however: Video projectors have experienced an enormous metamorphosis during the past decade.

These devices now offer admirable cost reductions and performance increases, and they can generate images much larger than the devices themselves. The screens on which they project their images, however, require a large area. Smart projectors, on the other hand, allow a correct projection onto many arbitrary existing surfaces, such as papered walls or curtained windows.
