20110221977LIGHT SOURCE UNIT, LIGHTING DEVICE, DISPLAY DEVICE AND TELEVISION RECEIVER - In a light source unit, a lighting device, a display device and a television receiver, display quality is not deteriorated. A light source unit includes a number of light guide members 09-15-2011
20110221976VIDEO DISPLAY APPARATUS, CONTROL METHOD FOR VIDEO DISPLAY APPARATUS,VIDEO OUTPUT APPARATUS, AND CONTROL METHOD FOR VIDEO OUTPUT APPARATUS - In case a video display apparatus is connected to a video output apparatus using communication means that disconnects an electrical connection in accordance with stop of power supply from the video output apparatus is operating in an operation mode where an output of video data is restarted after an output of video data is temporarily stopped, control is performed so that the electrical connection is not disconnected. In a state where in accordance with supply power from the video output apparatus, a control signal for establishing an electrical connection via the communication means is in an ON level, in case stop of the power supply is detected, if the video output apparatus is in an operation mode where an output of video data is restarted after an output of video data is temporarily stopped, control is performed so that the control signal is not changed to an OFF level.09-15-2011
20130148035LIGHTING DEVICE, DISPLAY DEVICE AND TELEVISION DEVICE - A backlight unit includes a chassis, a plurality of LED light sources, and a reflection member. The chassis includes a bottom plate and side plates, and has an opening on a front surface side. The LED light sources are arranged in a matrix on a front surface of the bottom plate of the chassis. The reflection member includes a plurality of through holes through which the respective LED light sources are passed and side wall portions having inclined surfaces on the sides thereof. The side wall portions provided in the end portion of the bottom plate of the chassis has a height greater than a height of the side wall portions provided in the middle portion of the bottom plate, and surround each of the LED light sources. The inclined surfaces lead light from the light sources toward the opening side of the chassis.06-13-2013
20130148036LIGHTING DEVICE, DISPLAY DEVICE AND TELEVISION DEVICE - A backlight unit includes a chassis, LED light sources, and a reflection member. The LED light sources are arranged in a matrix on a bottom plate of the chassis. The reflection member includes side wall portions and through holes through which the LED light sources are passed. The side wall portions surround each of the LED light sources passing through the respective through holes. The side wall portions have inclined surfaces on side surfaces thereof that lead light from the LED light sources toward the opening side of the chassis. Each of the side wall portions located between the LED light sources that are adjacently positioned in a diagonal direction has a height greater than a height of each of the side wall portions located between the LED light sources that are adjacently positioned in a vertical direction or in a horizontal direction.06-13-2013
20100283920LIGHTING DEVICE, DISPLAY DEVICE AND TELEVISION RECEIVER - A lighting device 11-11-2010
20120281151LIGHTING DEVICE, DISPLAY DEVICE AND TELEVISION RECEIVER - A lighting device is provided in which a distance between a light guide plate and a light source can be held constant, and thus an optical design thereof can be maintained. A backlight unit 11-08-2012
20120281150APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR MULTI-STREAMING FOR MORE THAN THREE PIXEL COMPONENT VALUES - A method and apparatus provides pixel information for one or more displays by producing for output on a single link, packet based pixel component multi-stream information on two or more streams. A first stream may include a portion of per-pixel component values, such as RGB pixel component values, whereas the second stream of the multi-stream may include a remaining portion of the per-pixel component values, such as a corresponding alpha value. Hence, multi-streams are employed to communicate, for example, an extended pixel component format for output to one or more displays. The multi-streams are synchronized to provide the pixel component values at a proper time for the receiving display or plurality of displays.11-08-2012
20110310309TELEVISION APPARATUS, ELECTRONIC APPARATUS, AND LENS - According to one embodiment, a television apparatus includes, a printed wiring board, a plurality of light emitting diodes provided on the printed wiring board and configured to emit light parallel to the printed wiring board, and a lens including a plurality of light receiving parts corresponding to the light emitting diodes, respectively, and a display part configured to display light which has been emitted from the light emitting diodes and has entered through the light receiving parts. The lens is provided with a cutout portion extending from a position between the light receiving parts to the display part.12-22-2011
