Here I took an ordinary computer LCD monitor and carefully disassembled it to work as a video projector. We call it Tati, named after the mid 20th century French director. A high intensity light bulb is used to power the image onto the screen and a series of fresnel/triplet lenses are used to focus the image. The screen you see in the photos is also homemade although you can easily use a store bought one as well. The screen is 100” diagonal. If you should be interested in taking on a project like this yourself and need a little help, just write me an email and I will be happy to help.
