Abstract.  Pixelated spatial light modulators are used today in large quantities for projecting information. Apart from this standard application, the elements have found widespread use as dynamic changeable holograms for a multitude of applications ranging from microscopy over optical measurement systems to lithography. In this first part of our contribution, we give an overview concerning the necessary theory for the successful application of pixelated modulators in holography. We focus on the limitations imposed by current and future technology.
