Industry partnership yields new projection technology

Wednesday, September 29, 2021

A longstanding partnership between Waterloo Engineering researchers and a leading projection company has yielded new technology for a state-of-the-art laser projector.

A patented algorithm developed at the Vision and Image Processing (VIP) Lab drives resolution enhancement in the new M 4K25 RBG projector produced by Christie, a global company with engineering headquarters in Kitchener.

Several years of research went into the technology – and produced published papers on enhancement of static images – before Alexander Wong, a professor of systems design engineering, helped come up with a new approach to enhance video.
