In lens-less projection it is reasonable to display on the Spatial Light Modulator various holographic phase distributions and decide which gives the best results on the projection screen. The merit functions are high contrast and low noise ratio in projected images. For that reason we designed holograms to be displayed on the light modulator in 7 different methods. In particular different resolutions and placements of mosaics of sub-holograms were examined.
