  • Patent number: 10620522
    Abstract: A projection apparatus comprising a prism assembly 7 including an input sub-prism 1 possessing a first interface surface and an output sub-prism 2 adjacent to the input sub-prism possessing a second interface surface. The second interface surface is spaced from the first interface surface immediately proximate to it and extends over it to receive display light 12 transmitted through the first interface surface. A panel 8 comprising a plurality of selectively adjustable reflecting elements is arranged to receive from the input sub-prism an illumination light totally internally reflected from the first interface surface and selectively to reflect received illumination light back through the input sub-prism for transmission through the first interface surface for receipt as display light 13 by the output prism at said second interface surface.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20160284319
    Abstract: A display apparatus and method are provided for at least partially compensating for undesirable image degradation arising from the processing of a generated image prior to display at a viewing surface, such as a combiner. The degradation is such that a viewer perceives a reduction in contrast ratio of a portion of the image content appearing in one or more regions of the field of view of the display, for example against an external scene being viewed through the combiner. In the invention, control means are provided to at least partially compensate for the reduction in contrast ratio by decreasing the resolution of the portion of the generated image content intended for display in the region of perceived reduced contrast ratio prior to input to the processing function.
