ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 5 -- Video Display, Tucker, Ga., has been assigned a patent (8,547,295) developed by Marcial Vidal, Merritt Island, Fla., and Haizhang Li, Orlando, Fla., for a "motion simulator and display system typically using light-emitting diodes."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A light-emissive module (114), typically utilizing one or more LEDs (132R, 132G, and 132B), is configured so that the maximum intensity of the module's light emission occurs along a direction (138) materially non-perpendicular to the back surface (136) of the module's supporting body (130). An active image-generating screen (102) contains a plurality of block facets (112), each containing a plurality of the light-emissive modules arranged so that their maximum light-intensity directions are largely the same. The block facets are configured to approximate a curved surface. The maximum light-intensity directions (158) of the block facets are thus materially slanted to one another. The image-generating screen presents a video image. A display system suitable for a motion simulator, such as a flight simulator, is formed by combining the screen with a reflective collimator (104)."
The patent application was filed on Oct. 13, 2009 (12/578,544). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8547295.PN.&OS=PN/8547295&RS=PN/8547295
