This paper proposes novel intelligent Value Added Modules (VAMs) which employ an intelligent spatial processing technique to realize variable optical power split ratios. To demonstrate the concept of the smart VAM, the Texas Instrument (TI) Digital Micro-mirror Device (DMDTM) has been used. Different optical power split ratios have been experimentally verified.
