2006 LED projection systems report from Insight Media

March 2, 2006
Date Announced: 02 Mar 2006 A study of the use of LEDs as an illumination source for projection systems is now available from Insight Media.Virtually all microdisplay-based projection systems built to date have used an HID lamp such as the UHP as a light source. LEDs are beginning to appear as light sources to replace lamps. There is a need for an evaluation of LEDs in terms of technology, price and performance and to compare these parameters to the existing arc lamp sources and forecast the penetration of LEDs into the projection markets.The objective of the 2006 LED Projection Systems Report is to supply managers, product planners, engineers and researchers with the information needed to evaluate LED technology in proposed projection displays. The required information needed to make these decisions includes performance data, cost information and availability. Key to understanding these parameters is optical modeling of projection systems to determine how LED light can be coupled into the etendue of the projection system.LED performance is expected to improve dramatically over the next several years. One objective of this report is to determine when it will be feasible to introduce LEDs into any particular market segment of the projection market, in competition with HID lamps and lasers. Report Highlights• Coverage of the use of LEDs in displays, including both benefits and problems• A description of current inorganic LED technology for high-brightness visible-light LEDs• Analysis of optics of projection systems that can use LED illumination, including similarities and differences between optics for LED, laser and HID lamp-based projectors.• A technology forecast for LEDs including what changes in the technology can be expected through 2010. • Brightness increase forecast for LEDs.• A description of the current and future packaging technologies for high-brightness LEDs• A technology forecast for LED-based projection systems• Price forecasts for LED illumination subsystems for projection displays. All prices are forecast through 2010.• Complete profiles of 6 high-brightness LED manufacturers• Complete profiles of 7 additional companies involved in LED projection• View the complete Table of ContentsThe 224-page 2006 LED Projection Systems Report is delivered with the customer’s choice of 3 segment analyses, all delivered as PDF files under a site license agreement. Seven market segment analyses , plus the high-brightness LED supply chain matrix, are currently available. Additional market segment analyses, beyond the three that accompany the report, can be purchased, if desired.Market segment analyses• Consumer RPTV• Consumer Front Projection• Pocket Projectors• Heads-Up Displays (both aviation and automotive)• Integrated Systems (laser displays embedded inside consumer products)• Electronic Cinema• Visualization and Simulation• High Brightness LED supply chain matrix (spreadsheet of >180 suppliers and distributors)Each market segment analysis includes an evaluation of both LED and laser technology in that market segment. The 2006 Laser Projection Report 2006 Laser Projection Report is also available.
