  • Publication number: 20200292922
    Abstract: A first optical system, a first mirror, a second optical system, a second mirror, and a third optical system are disposed in order on an optical axis from an image forming panel to a screen. A first optical axis of the first optical system, a second optical axis of the second optical system, and a third optical axis of the third optical system are formed in a U shape, and orientations of luminous fluxes of the first optical axis and the third optical axis are reversed. The first mirror, the second optical system, the second mirror, and the third optical system are held to make a second holding barrel with respect to the first optical system. The second holding barrel is rotationally moved in a rotational movement range of 45° with respect to a first holding barrel. In projecting portrait image instead of a landscape image, the second holding barrel is rotated in increments of 45° with respect to the first holding barrel.

  • Patent number: 10463185
    Abstract: A draining rack is configured including a fixed rack and a movable rack supported such that it can be tilted with respect to the fixed rack. The movable rack is supported by the fixed rack such that it can be tilted (rotated) between an upright position at which it stands upright on the front side of the fixed rack and a tilted position at which it is tilted from the upright position. By rotating the movable rack from the tilted position to the upright position in a state in which a cleaning sponge is held (interposed) between the fixed rack and the movable rack, this arrangement is capable of squeezing the cleaning sponge. This allows the draining time for the cleaning sponge to be reduced.
