Abstract

An apparatus (110), system (100), and method (900) for displaying an image (880). Instead of using an expensive configuration of prisms (310) such as TIR prisms (311 ) or RTIR prisms (312) to direct light (800) to and from a DMD (324), a plate (340) with transmissive (374), reflective (372), and/or polarization (373) characteristics is used. The plate (340) can be implemented in a wide variety of different embodiments using a wide variety of different components and configurations.
