Microdisplays for projectors are categorized into two types: liquid crystal microdisplays and other microdisplays. Liquid crystal microdisplays have two types, which are the reflective type and the transmissive type.
Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation has two types of liquid crystal devices: the reflective type SXRD™ and the transmissive type BrightEra™.
|Liquid crystal microdisplay||Other type|
|Reflective type||Transmissive type|
The SXRD utilizes Sony’s original fine pixel pitch technology, pixel flattening technology and inorganic alignment technology to achieve high reflectivity and high contrast ratio performance in a compact 0.37-type size.
The BrightEra utilizes Sony’s original fine fabrication technologies to achieve a high aperture ratio and high light efficiency. Implementation of inorganic alignment film greatly enhances light fastness performance and achieves high reliability.
Field Sequential Technique: the three primary colors (RGB) images are projected time-sequentially onto the screen.
The three primary colors (RGB) images are blended and projected onto the screen.
