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 back out to light on an electronic display. Have you ever wondered how light gets converted into an electronic signal? What a pixel code value really is? What that pixel code value represents, and how it is converted back to light on a display? What the acronyms CCD, CMOS, LCD, DLP, and OLED mean? If you have wondered these things, make sure to join us for this webcast. We'll answer these and many other questions regarding basic concepts about electronic cameras and displays.

Essential Technology Concepts Webcasts are free and open to all.
