Abstract

The inventive visual display unit has an antiglare device consisting of a telescopic arm (7) and a shield (10). Said telescopic arm (7) is coupled to the housing (1) of the visual display unit by a ball-and-socket joint. The free end of the arm (7) supports the shield (10) by means of another ball-and-socket joint.

Description

visual display unit

The invention relates to a screen device according to the preamble of claim 1.

Display devices have the disadvantage that in a solar radiation on the screen the display of the screen is no longer recognizable, at least in part. The same is true when the environment of the display device sunrays is exposed. Here then come to reflections on the screen. To mitigate these effects, it is known to apply anti-reflection films to the screen. However, the effect of such films is relatively low.

The DE 38 34 315 C2 shows a funnel-shaped aperture, which is fastened with suction cups on the screen device. The dimensions of this aperture are variable and therefore the screen size adaptable.

The DE 295 03 652 shows an anti-glare, which consists of three panels, which are arranged at a extending along the top edge of the screen holding tube. The mean aperture is pivotable about the support tube, while the two side panels are hinged along the lateral edges of the screen. The holding tube is constructed as a telescopic tube.

WO 95/31820 shows an anti-glare, in which a protective glass above the screen and is slidably mounted about a horizontal axis pivotally foldable against the screen.

The DE 82 23 420 Ul shows an attachment device for a television set, in which an optical head is height-adjustable and removably supported by a holding frame, which is situated in front of the display device. DE 297 03 819 shows an anti-glare consisting of three individual panels, in which two lateral sides of the screen apertures are pivotable about vertical axes, while the central aperture is pivotable in the region of the upper edge of the screen about a horizontal axis.

The DE 83 26 282 Ul shows a funnel-shaped anti-glare, which is anschnallbar to a display device.

The abovementioned anti-glare devices are constructed largely complicated and do not allow rapid and uncomplicated adjustment of the diaphragm at different, changing light conditions to, for example, with a change of the sun or in a transition from sunlight to artificial light.

There is the task of training the visual display unit so that the adverse effect of direct and indirect light irradiation also a simple and straightforward manner can be avoided.

This object is achieved with the features of claim 1. Advantageous embodiments are the dependent claims.

Embodiments are explained below with reference to the drawings. Show it:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the display device in use.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of this device in a partially folded state.

3 is a perspective view of a variant of the display device. a perspective view of another embodiment and Fig. 4.

The display device includes a substantially cubical housing 1 is arranged at the front of the screen. 2 On the front underside of the housing 1 is a two-part keyboard is hinged. The half of the keyboard 3 is hinged on a horizontal projection 4 at the bottom of the housing 1, while the half of the keyboard 5 is hinged to the half of the keyboard. 3 The half of the keyboard 5 can be folded about a horizontal axis against the half of the keyboard 3, which then both keyboard halves 3, 5 can be folded around the horizontal axis between the projection 4 and the half of the keyboard 3 in the direction of the screen. 2 The two folding axes perpendicular to each other.

On the upper rearwardly extending housing edge 6 an arm 7 is hinged. This arm 7 is telescopic. In the linkage 8 is a ball joint which allows a pivoting of the arm 7 in a plurality of directions.

At the end of the arm 7 a further articulation 9 is provided in the form of a further ball joint, which carries a diaphragm 10 degrees. This diaphragm 10 has substantially the dimensions of the screen. 2 In the aperture 10, two speakers 11 and, optionally, an unillustrated microphone may be integrated. these components via extending in the arm 7 lines are connected to the screen device. At the speakers 11 opposite side of the diaphragm 10 solar cells, not shown may be disposed.

As is apparent from Figure 1, the aperture 10 may be aligned relative to the screen 2 by means of articulations 8, 9 and of the arm 7 so that the screen is shielded 2 of sun rays.

If the display device is no longer needed, then the arm 7 in the pushed-together state against the top of the housing 1 is folded, which there has a horizontally extending, elongate depression 12 for receiving the arm. 7 Then, the diaphragm 10 is folded against the screen 2, and taken up by surrounding the screen housing recess 13 at least in part. After the half of the keyboard is folded 5 against the half of the keyboard 3, the keyboard is folded against the diaphragm 10 degrees. The projection 4 guarantees a distance exact assignment of aperture 10 and keyboard halves 3, 5, ie, the width of the protrusion 4 and the depth of the recess 13 correspond approximately to the thickness of the aperture 10 plus the thickness of half of the keyboard. 5

The setting of the aperture 10 with respect to a light source and the screen 2 can be made visible in a simple manner by the arm 7 is pivoted about the hinge 8 and is telescoped and the aperture 10 then by aligning the arm 7 and pivoting of the diaphragm 10 to the articulation 9 is optimally aligned.

In the embodiment according to FIG 3, the parts that are the same have the same reference numerals to those of Figures 1 and 2. FIG. The keyboard halves 3, 5 and the projection 4 have come in omission, when it is at the screen 2 by a touch-screen.

In the illustrated embodiment of FIG 3 2 magnification optics 14 are arranged approximately in the eyes spaced from each other in the aperture. If the diaphragm 10 is pivoted in front of the screen 2, so that the screen is arranged approximately parallel to the screen 10 2, the screen on the enlargement optics 14 may be viewed. When not in use the diaphragm 10 comes to lie in the depression. 13

In the embodiment of Figure 4 of the telescoping arm 7 has been replaced by a two-part arm 7A, which is formed from the two part arms 7b, 7c, which are connected to one another via an articulated joint 15 °. When the arm is bent 7A, then the partial arms 7B, 7C parallel to each other.
