  • Patent number: 11509874
    Abstract: To provide a video projector which improves visibility in response to changes in projection environment, a video projector has an initial level setter, a level adjuster, a projection display, an image capture, and a projection histogram calculator. The initial level setter performs a prescribed initial level setting on an input video signal and outputs an initial display signal. The level adjuster adjusts the level of the initial display signal on the basis of a projection image and outputs a display signal. The image capture captures the projection image projected on a projection surface by the projection display based on the display signal. The projection histogram calculator prepares a projection histogram for each color. The level adjuster adjusts the level of the initial display signal for each color on the basis of the projection histogram.
