english 8 User’s Guide - SAFETY F35 user’s guide - SAFETY CAUTION! Connecting sources to a powered projector may result in product failure. It is recommended that the power cable connector (projector-end) or the mains power socket are accessible whilst the product is in use to enable mains power to be disconnected or switched off when connecting source devices. This should be considered during product installation. Only connect the projector to signal sources and voltages as described in the technical specification. Connecting to unspecified signal sources or voltages may lead to malfunction and permanent damage of the unit. Allow lamp to cool down before changing. One lamp may be changed while the other lamp is operating (hot-swap). 2.2.1 INFORMATION AND WARNING ABOUT POTENTIAL HEALTH ISSUES RELATED TO MERCURY VAPOR (This section only applies to projectors with UHP lamps) This projector uses a very powerful UHP™ lamp for illumination to produce an extremely bright image. This technology is similar to other high-pressure discharge lamps that are extensively used in cars, street lights and other lighting appliances today. These lamps, like fluorescent lighting, contain small amounts of mercury. The amount of mercury present in a lamp is far below the limits of danger set by the authorities. It is very important that lamps containing mercury are treated properly to minimize potential health hazards. The UHP™ lamp, like any other high brightness projector lamp, is under high-pressure when operating. While the lamp and the projector are carefully designed to minimize the prob- ability of lamp rupture, the lamp may break while operating and small amounts of mercury vapor may be emitted from the projector. The probability of rupture increases when the lamp reaches its nominal life. It is therefore highly recommended that the lamp is replaced when the rated lifetime is reached. As a general precaution, secure good ventilation in the room when operating the projector. If lamp rupture occurs, evacuate the room and secure good ventilation. Children and pregnant women in particular should leave the room. When replacing a worn lamp, dispose of the used lamp carefully by proper recycling. Mercury is a naturally occurring, stable metallic element that may pose a safety risk to people under certain conditions. According to the Public Health Statement for Mercury published by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (“ATSDR”, part of the United States Public Health Service), the brain, central nervous system and kidneys are sensitive to the effects of mercury, and permanent damage can occur at sufficiently high levels of exposure. Acute exposure to high concentrations of mercury vapor can cause conditions such as lung and airway irritation, tightness in the chest, a burning sensation in the lungs, coughing, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Children and fetuses are particularly sensitive to the harmful effects of metallic mercury to the nervous system. Seek medical attention if any of the above symptoms are experienced or if other unusual conditions are experienced following lamp rupture. 2.3 WEEE INFORMATION This product conforms to all requirements of the EU Directive on waste electrical and elec- tronic equipment (WEEE).

When several projectors are in use in an installation, individual control may be convenient. Individual control is available either by wired remote control, using the data-jack, or by using an individ- ual number code. For individual control, first set the individual RC ID code using the projector menu system, see the SETTINGS sub menu. Then, to select a specific projector to control, first press the ‘*’ button in the lower keypad area, then the code as set in the target projector. A code can be in the range ‘0’..’99’. ‘0’ is reserved for broadcast. To select another target, repeat the process by pressing ‘*’ and a new code. To exit individual control, press ‘*’’*’ twice or press ‘*’ and ‘0’. 6.2 Protecting the projector with a pin code The projector may be controlled by a PIN (Personal Identification Number) code. The PIN code is 4 digits, and if the PIN code is activated, you must enter the correct code to unlock the projector. Factory set PIN (1234). To activate, deactivate or change the PIN code, see the SETTINGS > PIN CODE sub menu. NOTE! If an incorrect PIN code is entered, you may try again two times. If you fail three times in a row, a PUK (unlock) code is needed. The PUK code is supplied with the product. WARNING! Entering the puk code correctly is the customers responsibility If you also fail three times with the PUK code, the projector locks up permanently, and can only be unlocked by a special service unlock code. To access this code, you will need to contact your dealer or a service station. The service unlock code will be generated based on a secure, encrypted number that is produced by the projector itself. The projector will produce a new number every time. NOTE! To unlock the projector, proof of ownership must be provided by the customer
english 28 User’s Guide - Advanced setup F35 User’s Guide - Advanced setup 6.3 Using dual head input For extended flexibility to connect high resolution sources with a pixel clock over 165 MHz, the projector is supporting a dual head input mode. In this mode the left and right half of the image can be connected to the DVI 1/DVI 2 or HDMI 1/HDMI 2 interfaces respectively (Figure 6-1). To enable this mode, go to the menu INSTALLATION > DUAL HEAD SETUP. Side-by-side is the only available option at this time. Figure 6-1. Dual input mode An example of this is feeding a WQXGA (2560x1600) source with 1280x1600 resolutions on each the DVI interfaces. When enabling this mode, the EDID data on each of the DVI connectors will automatically be changed from WQXGA (2560x1600) to 1280x1600. NOTE! For the image to be displayed in this mode, the resolution must be exactly the same on both connectors. NOTE! In this mode the two connected sources must have exactly the same timing. A drift in timing between the inputs will result in a visible split in the center of image. NOTE! Some graphic cards have problems with detecting the change from single head to dual head mode. If problems occur, disconnect both signal cables before enabling or disabling the dual mode in the menu. 6.4 Setting custom color space and digital level The projector will automatically try to set the correct color space and digital drive level based on information from the source.

These can be used to enable or disable screens, curtains or other peripheral equipment. To change trigger settings, go to menu entry INSTALLATION > TRIGGER By default: • Trigger 1 is set to control a screen depending on whether projector is powered on or not. • Trigger 2 is set to control a screen depending on the aspect ratio of currently active source. Both triggers can be manually overridden both in the menu system and by using the com- mand and control protocol through RS-232 or LAN. 6.7 Setting aspect trigger behavior To customize the aspect trigger functionality, go to menu entry INSTALLATION > TRIGGER > ASPECT TRIGGER BEHAVIOR. In this sub-menu it is selectable for which input aspect ratios the trigger will be enabled. 6.8 Automatic power on/off The projector can be automatically powered on or off by using the internal timer function or DPMS. 6.8.1 Using the timer The projector features a real-time clock that enables timing control. This means that the projector can be programmed to switch on and off at certain pre-set times during a weekly cycle. To allow for a flexible schedule, 10 ‘programs’ are available. With each program, you can define the switch on or switch off time for a single day (Monday to Sunday), all work days (Monday through Friday), or week-end (Saturday and Sunday). One, several or all programs can be active at the same time as desired. In this way, a flexible scheme can be established. Observe the 24 hour time format. For more information, see the SETTINGS > TIMER menu. The following example illustrates a case where the projector turns on at 08:00 in the morning (8 am) and switches off at 20:00 (8 pm) on weekdays (Monday through Friday). Weekends (Saturdays and Sundays), it turns on at 10:00 (10 am) and off at 18:00 (6 pm). VGA is used as the source. For this, four programs are needed, 2 for on and two for off. 6.8.2 Using DPMS (Display Power Management Signaling) The projector is enabled for DPMS (Display Power Management Signaling). When enabled, the projector will automatically switch to standby mode after a specified time if there is no valid source present at its inputs. When a valid source is reconnected, the projector will start up again. To enable or disable DPMS, go to menu entry SETTINGS > DPMS. The desired DPMS time- out is set in the DPMS > DPMS TIMEOUT menu entry. DPMS is disabled by default.

To disable the LED indicators, go to menu entry SETTINGS > LED INDICATORS MUTE. If the LED indicators are enabled, the timeout period can be set in the menu under SET- TINGS > BACKLIGHT TIMEOUT. 6.10 Setting the background color The background color displayed when the projector is searching for a source can be set to a set of predefined colors. Go to menu entry SETTINGS > BACKGROUND to set the desired color. Default is black. 6.11 Setting OSD menu timeout If the OSD menu is open and not used for a defined period of time, it will automatically be disabled. The default time is 30 seconds. This timeout interval can be controlled from 5 sec- onds to 60 seconds. The timeout can also be set to “never” for the OSD menu to never time out. Go to menu entry SETTINGS > MENU TIMEOUT to change this setting. 6.12 Selecting the startup logo When the projector is starting up, a logo is displayed in the entire image. The logo can also be set to “black” if it is desirable to disable the manufacturers default logo. Go to menu entry SETTINGS > SPLASH to change this setting.
english 31 www.projectiondesign.com 7 Optimising the picture The projector has power features for picture optimization. This chapter describes details in using these features. All color calibration is done using projectiondesign’s proprietary Real- Color™ solution. 7.1 Calibration data All projectiondesign projectors are measured and calibrated with high precision equipment at the factory for the best out-of-box experience. Over the lifetime of the lamps the characteris- tics of the projector might change slightly. The same applies when replacing lamps. 7.1.1 Updating RealColor™ calibration data For accurate results with the RealColor™ system, accurate measurement data is required. RealColor™ calibration data can be found under the menu entry PICTURE > CALIBRATION > REALCOLOR CALIBRATION > MEASURED VALUES X, Y and relative luminance values for red, green, blue, white and BrilliantColor™ 1 is entered in this menu. The BrilliantColor™ should all be set to 0.000 for the VizSim (RGBRGB) color wheel. All values can also be updated using the communications protocol over RS-232 or LAN. IMPORTANT! Before setting these values, it is important to select the desired Brilliant- Color™ setting. Go to menu entry PICTURE > REALCOLOR > BRILLIANTCOLOR to select the desired BrilliantColor™ look. Measurements must be done on the built in test patterns. This is in particularly important for the BrilliantColor™ 1 test pattern since it is impossible to generate this pattern correctly using a computer source. In the user menu these patterns can be accessed through PICTURE > CALIBRATION > REALCOLOR CALIBRATION > CALIBRATION TESTIMAGE. Use the arrow keys to cycle through the images. NOTE! Performing a factory reset of the projector will restore the measured values to the values measured in the factory. NOTE! When measuring data, a high quality measurement instrument is highly recom- mended for accurate results. Spectrometers (like PhotoResearch PR-655) are preferred. TIP! For an easier calibration procedure, automated calibration can be achieved using projectiondesign’s software package ProNet. A license for the calibration software pack- age of ProNet must be purchased separately.
english 32 User’s Guide – Optimising the picture F35 User’s Guide – Optimising the picture 7.2 Working with RealColor™ 7.2.1 Setting the BrilliantColor™ correctly The BrilliantColor™ setting is used to control how color boost is applied in the image. It can operate in four modes: • Computer Native (Default): This give max brightness and color boost. Recommended for non-video applications, like CAD and visualization. • Computer Balanced: Gives the same brightness as Computer Native, but has a less ag- gressive color boost profile. • Video Native: Gives less brightness than computer, but will appear with significantly less noise in video content. • Video Balanced: Same brightness as Video Native, but with a smoother color boost profile. • Off: Only recommend for applications requiring a pure red, green, blue mix of colors. No secondary color or white are added to the mix.

english 35 www.projectiondesign.com 7.2.3 RealColor™ operating modes Before any color correction is applied to the image, the feature must be enabled. Go to menu entry PICTURE > REALCOLOR > COLOR CORRECTION to enable RealColor™. RealColor™ can operate in 3 modes: • Color temperature/white point correction only. • Red, Green, Blue, White correction. In this mode optimal color coordinates for Cyan, Magenta and Yellow will be computed automatically. • Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, White. In this mode color points and intensity for each color can be manipulated separately. To change the RealColor™ mode, please go the menu entry PICTURE > REALCOLOR > DESIRED VALUES > DESIRED COORDS MODE. 7.2.4 Setting a white point or color temperature After enabling RealColor™, set the color temperature in the menu entry PICTURE > REAL- COLOR > COLOR TEMPERATURE. Values between 3200K and 9300K can be selected. These color temperatures are tracking the “black body curve”- the black curved line in the center of CIE Chart in Figure 7-7. The default is the D65 illuminant at 6500K. Figure 7-7. CIE Chart with the black body The white point can also be set to a custom value defined by an x, y coordinate not linked to the black body. Go to menu entry PICTURE > REALCOLOR > X-COORDINATE and PIC- TURE > REALCOLOR > Y-COORDINATE to change the white point.
english 36 User’s Guide – Optimising the picture F35 User’s Guide – Optimising the picture 7.2.5 Defining the system color gamut All colors visible to the eye are defined by CIE Chart in Figure 7-7. The boundary of the colors the projector can display is called the system color gamut. The white triangle in Figure 7-7 is an example of a system color gamut. By default the projector has the widest possible system gamut, which is limited by the color wheel selected for the system. The VizSim color wheel has the widest color gamut and the High Brightness color wheel has the smallest. IMPORTANT! The system color gamut cannot be expanded outside color gamut defined by the color wheel. It may be desirable to change the system color gamut of the projector to: - Color match multiple projectors. - Meet defined color standards, like REC 709. - Create a special “look” to the image. Before the system color gamut can be change the desired RealColor™ mode has to be defined. To change the RealColor™ mode, please go the menu entry PICTURE > REAL- COLOR > DESIRED VALUES > DESIRED COORDS MODE. RealColor™ has to be enabled for the desired system gamut to be applied. Go to menu entry PICTURE > REALCOLOR > COLOR CORRECTION to enable RealColor™. After RealColor™ is enabled and the desired color correction mode is selected, please go the menu entry PICTURE > REALCOLOR > DESIRED VALUES to change the color points to the your desired system color gamut. TIP! For graphical visualization of the system color gamut and easy color management for a single or multiple projectors, the ProNet software package could be used. A license for the calibration software package of ProNet must be purchased separately.
