  • Patent number: 5691785
    Abstract: The present invention provides a color projector utilizing three liquid crystal display elements. The natural light is separated into illuminating rays of red, green and blue colors by a dichroic mirror, each of these illuminating rays being used to illuminate the corresponding one of the liquid crystal display elements. Each of the liquid crystal display elements is controlled by a desired image signal with respect to its transmittance at each pixel. After passed through the liquid crystal display elements, three kinds of colored illuminating rays are again synthesized by the other dichroic mirror to form a light beam which in turn is enlarged and projected by a projecting lens on a screen. By providing light source means including means for converting the natural light into the linearly polarized beam, the illuminating rays may have their polarizing angles coincide with each other without any loss of light.

  • Patent number: 5321789
    Abstract: A light valve is a planar member in which liquid crystals are hermetically sealed, and allows the transmission of light in an almost parallel direction and selectively scattering undesired light. On a rear surface of the light valve is disposed a light guide tube which contains a plurality of minute apertures. Alternatively, one of the substrates which constitute the light valve may be made of a fiber plate. The fiber plate has a structure in which short optical fibers are stacked. The light guide tube or the fiber plate converges a luminous flux emitted from the light valve to improve the contrast of an image. A projection display apparatus is constituted of a light source, a light valve, either a light guide tube or a fiber plate, a lens, and a projection lens. A luminous flux emitted from either the light guide tube or the fiber plate is incident on the pupil of the projection lens by way of the lens, and the projection lens casts this luminous flux onto a screen, thus forming a projected image.
