so there is a processor box that manages a group of tiles. (up to 30ish depending on what you are doing) so it creates a canvas that goes on those tiles. each tile is an individual 20" diagonal box with no bezel. tiles are glass on the edges.
it breaks up the video and puts it to the right tiles. as well, the tiles have internal servos that constantly monitor all sorts of stuff. brightness, colour, alignment (spacing of the lasers) etc. so the processor manages all the data from tile to tile. as well, in large walls (i reecently built one in china that is about 80' wide by 12' high with a 2 degree curve. resolution of 20,496 x 2,880) the processors talk to each other to manage all those things across the entire wall.
video comes in, tiles up the refresh rate to 360hz and you get a nice clean phosphor based image.
thats just a short version.
at one point in the companies history, we developed a 60" HD prototype, and were planning on just being an R&D company. but that evolved so that we make the products. we are working on some stuff that is going to shake up many aspects of the display industry, but at present, not looking at the small displays.
