Increase Pico Projector Viewability and Compensate for Non-white Projection Surfaces
Traditional video projectors, such as those used in business conference rooms and movie theaters, always project onto a white screen. Professional content is always color-balanced for this. However, pico projectors are designed to be portable and be readily-used—and unintended consequence of this is that they are not always going to be projected onto a white surface. The consequence of this is that the color of the projected surface can significantly change how the content is perceived.
Figure 1 shows an example of the same image projected onto a white surface, and then a green surface.

QuickLogic’s Background Color Compensator (BCC) technology uses advanced color balancing and enhancement to adapt the colors of the projected content to best match the projected surface. This is shown in figure 2.
