In this webcast, we will discuss the basic technical concepts that describe how electronic cameras and electronic displays work. We will describe the journey light takes from a scene to the electronic sensor inside a camera and all the way back out to light on an electronic display. Have you ever wondered how does light gets converted into an electronic signal? What is a pixel code value really? What does that pixel code value represent and how is it converted back to light on a display? What do the acronyms CCD, CMOS, LCD, DLP, OLED mean?! If you have, make sure to join us for this webcast where these and many other questions regarding basic concepts about electronic cameras and displays will be answered.
