Default Re: Colour mixing in mechanical television

Since when viewing the picture the eye will be focussed on what makes it up: the pixel source at the slit, and the colour beams will be overlapping at the slit anyway, I can't see why any diffusing material will be necessary.

In other words, the eye will automatically do your 'diffusing' for you by virtue of being focussed on the slit.

PS. I've now been to see your updated article and I think I understand why you propose a diffuser; this is because you are using the colour LED rows side by side, and not in a line. Without a diffuser this might give a red, a green and a blue picture side-by-side. Instead, I think they would be better all in a tight line, arrayed in RGB sequence. Then you shouldn't need the diffuser.
