A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230309792A1) describes a video processing apparatus (VPA) with unique design features. The VPA includes a housing with a back wall that has a recessed portion and a main portion. The recessed portion is angled at least 5 degrees relative to the back plane, which facilitates the insertion of a video connector into a video output socket.

The patent also mentions the inclusion of a video output card, which is mounted on the housing parallel to the angled surface of the recessed portion. This arrangement allows for efficient video output connections. Additionally, the recessed wall extends parallel to one side of the housing, and the recessed portion extends from the recessed wall towards the same side of the VPA. The distance from the recessed portion to the back plane decreases in a direction from the recessed wall towards that side of the VPA.

The VPA further includes a handle that is pivotally affixed to the back wall and can pivot about a rotation axis. The handle has grooves that are sized and shaped to receive its arms, and the video connection recess is positioned between these grooves. The handle can be pivoted to different positions, allowing for flexibility in handling and positioning the VPA.

In terms of cooling, the patent mentions the use of an external heat sink positioned adjacent to the video connection recess. Additionally, the VPA may have an internal heat sink and a heat transfer bridge that connects it to the external heat sink. Notably, the VPA does not include a fan for cooling purposes.

The VPA also features a display module with a display screen opposite the back plane of the housing. It can be operated in two orientations, and a graphical user interface is provided to present image data accordingly.

Overall, this patent describes a video processing apparatus with a unique design that facilitates video output connections, provides flexibility in handling, and includes efficient cooling mechanisms. The inclusion of a display module and the ability to operate in different orientations add to its versatility.
