The left picture is RGB Laser Backlight illuminated image using patented speckle reduction approach with bandwidth enhancement. The saturated and expanded color gamut is clearly and visibly demonstrated.
Corporation for Laser Optics Research (COLOR) was established in 1987 and over the years, received a series of patents for Pulsed Laser Acoustic-Optic Image Modulation, a method for modulating pulsed laser light precisely with video signals, to produce full color video images. This "AOM" technology was utilized to produce large venue display systems that were installed in airports, sports arenas, museums and adapted for unique applications by the U.S. Military.
Subsequent research efforts led to the development of the first diode pumped solid-state (DPSS) pulsed, high power red, green and blue (RGB) laser set, which today is still one of the most powerful in the world. The company has continuously refined these achievements into functioning demonstration prototype projection systems for digital cinema applications, which incorporate superior contrast, "true color" image with expanded and saturated color gamut.
Recently the company developed a proprietary laser display technology and patented it under "Systems and Methods for Speckle reduction through Bandwidth Enhancement". This patent features methods to reduce laser speckle by bandwidth enhancement of each RGB laser and also protects the use of semiconductor laser diode (LD) based visible lasers in display applications. New and advanced laser display technology is being developed regularly, including laser illuminated backlight unit design and unique 3-D display methods.
COLOR´s latest semiconductor laser diode based red, green, and blue laser light source technology is fully scalable, from large cinema screen projection use, to small television and computer monitor applications. COLOR is currently developing the 1st working prototype of a small LCD flat panel monitor illuminated by the semiconductor LD based RGB laser backlight unit.
The key corporate objective is to make COLOR´s RGB laser technology as the
light-source of choice for every discriminating display application requiring wide and pure color gamut including backlight for 3D-capable LCD flat panel displays in the near future.
