A prototype 28-in.-diagonal desktop data monitor capable of displaying 2048 × 2048-pixel images has been designed, built, and evaluated. The monitor uses optical projection technology. A reflective, crystalline silicon active-matrix light valve using liquid crystal electro-optics and a digital electronic interface architecture is described. This rear-projection monitor has four million resolvable pixels, uses three light valves to achieve color, has a low-gain surface diffuser screen, and functions as a fully interactive, color personal computer monitor with motion video capability. The monitor is 20 in. deep.
