Aug. 10, 2007
Date Announced: 10 Aug 2007 Corvallis, OR — Optical Short Course International, Inc (OSCI) and Optima Research jointly announce the addition of a popular Zemax® course and a digital projector course to Optima Research’s Training Schedule next month in Stansted, England. Scheduled on-site at the Optima Research Training Suite, OSCI President, Michael Pate will teach his popular optical technology courses—Optics of Digital Projectors and Applied Digital Projector Design with Zemax®.Mr. Pate will present a thorough overview of the optics contained in a digital projector by detailing its fundamental inner workings during the four-day Optics of Digital Projectors course. This course enables students to jump up the steep learning curve of digital projector technology by receiving applied system design and analysis experience with non-sequential (NSC) Zemax®. Specifically geared toward design engineers, production staff, systems engineers, and those in the supply chain this course is an excellent prerequisite course to proceed to the more advanced design courses using Zemax®. A Product Development Manager who recently attended the course said, "A lot of good information for understanding system level trade-offs between modulators and optical system, very useful course. I would recommend that anyone joining projector projects to take this course.” This course will be taught September 17 through 20, 2007.Students attending the four-day Applied Digital Projector Design with Zemax® course will step-up to the next level of digital projector design and analysis. Mr. Pate leads students through OSCI’s optical instrument design and modeling with NSC Zemax® to learn the fundamentals necessary to be successful with the incredible power in NSC Zemax® to design, model, and analyze optical instruments. The course culminates using the design, analysis, and modeling techniques of the previous three days and leverages this knowledge to design and model an LCoS digital projector light engine. This course will be taught September 24 through 27, 2007. Below is an Illumination System Sample that students will create during this course.Those interesting in attending one or both courses should contact Optima-Research directly at www.optima-research.com or by phone at +44 (0)1279 810911. Attendees register for both courses will receive a £300 discount.For additional information on Optics of Digital Projectors and Applied Digital Projector Design with Zemax®, customize in-house training courses, or LED light engine assembly design and analysis; visit us at www.oscintl.com or call 541-255-2165.About OSCI Inc.Leading the industry in LED-based design and analysis, reverse engineering, and customized in-house training courses, Corvallis, Oregon-based OSCI Inc. continually exceeds optical engineering training and consulting expectations worldwide.
