People like to look at images and interact with them. We will show how scanned beam technology can either display, or capture images, and that this makes it unique when compared to other display technologies such as LCD,PDP,OLED, or projection. Scanned beam is what is used in laser printers in one dimensional form. We have replaced the polygon by a MEMs device as small as a few millimeters in size that scans in two dimensions at video rates. This small size and simplicity enables a range of applications from personal head worn displays, image capture for and endoscope, or very light weight, power efficient direct view displays. Scanned beam is the most direct connection between images in memory, and the physical manifestation or source of that information.
