What you hold in your hand is one of the most comprehensive treatise on displays -- covering a tremendous breadth starting from the very fundamentals to the latest technologies. It takes you on an exciting, exploratory, and adventurous tour through the entire space spanned by the science and technology behind all kinds of different displays.

-- Aditi Majumder, Department of Computer Science, University of California Irvine, USA

The writing of this book is timely as it brings together in one broad introduction key diverse, yet fundamental, principles and applications of light sources, optics, vision, and image processing. The illustrations in this book will likely bring many of the subjects to life for both novices and experts and the outlook on the future inspires us all.

-- Jannick Rolland, Institute of Optics, University of Rochester, USA

This book provides one of the most comprehensive review of display technologies available. The background information, overview of fundamentals and breadth and depth covered by the book is quite remarkable. It should be required reading for all those in the display industry and would be a fantastic resource for researchers developing the next generation of interactive displays.

-- Mark Billinghurst, Human Interface Technology Laboratory New Zealand (HIT Lab NZ), Christchurch, New Zealand

An outstanding piece of work. From A to Z and beyond. Fun to read. I can recommend this must-have book for both newcomers and experts.

-- Kiyoshi Kiyokawa, Cybermedia Center, Osaka University, Japan

This is a very accessible and useful book. It covers a very broad range of display-related topics and makes a fine balance between breadth and depth. I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to learn about display technologies.

-- Hong Hua, College of Optical Sciences, University of Arizona, USA

This is the first book that provides comprehensive tutorials for all kinds of displays including the state-of-art displays as visual interface. While understanding the principle and design of displays, you can also learn a lot of basic technologies of displays, such as physics, electronics and electrical engineering, and computer science.

-- Hideo Saito, Department of Information and Computer Science, Keio University, Japan

This well-structured, concise but extremely comprehensive work serves as an excellent guide into the vast and fascinating world of information and entertainment displays--from early beginnings to the latest cutting-edge prototypes and concepts. Clear explanations and numerous well-conceived illustrations help the reader--whether student or professional--quickly grasp the fundamentals, and will most certainly motivate interested readers to explore the bibliography.

-- Andrei State, Department of Computer Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA

This book provides a superb overview to the techniques and applications of holography. The author steers clear of unnecessary mathematics, and shows the principles of this noble price awarded technique in a comprehensive, clear and very explicable way.

-- Tim Frieb, Laservision, Germany

This ambitious book exhaustively covers fundamental issues as well as advanced technologies on visual displays. What makes it unique is the fact that, on the one hand, there are more than 450 useful images and diagrams, which help readers to clearly understand the contents, and, on the other hand, the appendix provides rich practical GPU implementations of real-time image processing techniques for the current displays. Since this book gives essential information, I would recommend it both to students, as a beginner's guide, and to professionals, as a specialized book.
