AHEAD OF THE CURVE
THE WORLD’S SMALLEST reflective liquid-crystal display device in full HD has a long name. Sony calls it SXRD241A, which is a compact portable projector displaying distortionfree images even on a curved surface.
Sony has used its fine pixel pitch technology that reduces the pixel pitch to achieve high resolution. Dot pitch, a specification for computer displays, printers, image scanners or other pixel-based devices, describes the distance between dots or subpixels on a display screen. It is measured in millimetres and a smaller number means a sharper image. The company has also used improved light-shielding, an all-new field-sequential colour technique and its original SXRD technologies developed for 4K home projectors, resulting in high resolution, high brightness and high contrast.
As the projector is portable and able to use any surface, it is slated to be a game changer. Imagine taking a gadget out of your pocket and projecting anything using a cylindrical cookie tin. Sony has incorporated a high-definition signal processing function to maximise its SXRD properties. Plus, you will find a geometric compensation function and an edge-blending feature for correcting image distortions.
