  • Publication number: 20140285777
    Abstract: In a projector, a comparator included in a trapezoid correction unit compares the aspect ratio of a rectangular input unit with that of the device area. A projection area determination unit determines an effective projection area that is an area included in the projection area and that is rectangular on the object on the basis of a result of the comparison. The device area determination unit determines an effective device area so that the relation of the effective projection area with the projection area corresponds to the relation of the effective device area with the device area. A geometric transformation unit projects the input image into the effective device area so that the input image is projected without distortion within the effective projection area of the object.

  • Patent number: 8818006
    Abstract: A loudspeaker system includes an enclosure surrounding a plurality of loudspeakers. The plurality of loudspeakers are disposed in series along a straight line in the enclosure. The enclosure includes a front panel, a back panel and side panels. The front panel, the side panels, and the back panel are disposed parallel to the straight line on which the loudspeakers are arranged. The side panels are provided with a front slit and a back slit. The back slit is disposed at an opposite side of the front slit in the enclosure. Sounds emitted to the upper and lower sides of diaphragms of the loudspeakers are separated from each other such that the sounds are prevented from mixing with each other. This provides a loudspeaker system capable of achieving desired sound pressure-frequency characteristics.
