rear projection

Definition

Electronics

  • The projection, onto a translucent screen, of images sent from a separate unit, and in which the projector and any viewers are on opposite sides of said screen. Used, for instance, in rear-projection TVs. This contrasts with front projection, where the images are viewed on a non-translucent screen, and the projector and viewers are on the same side of said screen.
