Large Screen Display

Features and Trends


Applications that require very large screen displays include full-dome projection for planetariums, deep space, and other immersive display solutions for science centers, museums and entertainment centers, outdoor displays for public events, and giant video walls used for digital signage.


A new generation of large screen applications is emerging exploiting new visualization technologies that allow to present larger, brighter, and higher quality images and video.
