projection distortion

Definition: Change in shape of an image caused by projection of the image from an incorrect position i.e. not square onto projection surface. * Typical example is slide or LCD projector being pointed upwards at projection screen: the upper part of the image is more magnified than the lower part, which distorts the shape of the projected area into a key-stone shape.
