keystone correction; CRT projector


Explanation:
"Keystone correction

Using optics design or other methods to apply a "negative" keystone to the image, which will partially cancel the effects of keystoning. If you aim a projector with keystone correction at a screen with the lens level with the middle of the screen, you will not that the image at the bottom is wider than at the top. When the projector is in normal position, pointing upward 10-25 degrees, the resulting image is fairly rectangular."

The rest of the glossary is also very helpful.

"beamer" is a word Germans use for projector. Röhrenbeamer is a CRT (=cathode ray tube) projector.
