  • Publication number: 20130002969
    Abstract: A video projector includes a cooling system arranged in a frame accommodating an optical component. The cooling system includes an ambient air drawing unit and a cooling fan. The ambient air drawing unit includes an inlet, through which the ambient air is drawn into the frame, an air filter arranged facing the inlet, and a case that accommodates the air filter and forms an air passage extending from the inlet to an exit side of the air filter. The cooling fan sends the ambient air, which is drawn in by the ambient air drawing unit, to the optical component. The ambient air drawing unit is formed to be movable to a position outside the frame so that the air filter is replaceable in a state in which the ambient air drawing unit is moved to the position outside the frame.

  • Patent number: 8303118
    Abstract: A video projector includes a first discharge port from which a cooling current is sent out of a duct to an optical component. A cooling fan generates the cooling current which flows through the duct. The first discharge port includes first and second wall surfaces opposed to each other in an optical axis direction in which the light is transmitted through the optical component, third and fourth wall surfaces opposed to each other in a lateral direction perpendicular to the optical axis direction, a discharge port inlet into which the cooling current from the cooling fan is drawn, and a discharge port outlet from which the cooling current is sent toward the optical component. A gap between the first and second wall surfaces and a gap between the third and fourth wall surfaces become narrower from the discharge port inlet to the discharge port outlet.

    Abstract: An LCD projector including liquid crystal light valves, a duct, and nozzles. Each liquid crystal light valve includes optical components. Cooling air flows through the duct to cool the optical components of each liquid crystal light valve. The nozzles are arranged in correspondence with the liquid crystal light valves and blow the cooling air from the duct toward the optical components of the corresponding liquid crystal light valves. At least one nozzle includes an inlet, which is in communication with the duct, and an outlet, from which the cooling air from the inlet is blown out. The outlet has a width in a direction orthogonal to an optical axis of light that is set so that a blowing range of the cooling air is selected for each optical component in the corresponding liquid crystal light valve.
