2. Mounting on the ceiling

Important

Never attempt to mount this unit on the ceiling by yourself. Consult with your local authorized dealer or any reliable contractor.

A ceiling mount bracket (optional) is needed for mounting this unit on the ceiling. The vertically reversed illustration of the screen installation position shown page 6 helps determine how far the screen should be set from the ceiling. The height can be determined by adding [H] described on page 6 and the height of the ceiling mount bracket [C] as shown in the following illustration. When this unit is installed on the ceiling, FRONT/CEILING in the menu group 4 must be selected on the menu. (See page 17.) The projected image can be vertically adjusted within a certain range by changing the value in DIGITAL LENS SHIFT on the menu when SCREEN ASPECT on the menu is set to 16:9. See page 6 for details.

3. Rear projection You can watch images projected on the back of a semi-translucent screen while sitting on the other side of the screen. The screen position can be determined by simply following the front setting procedures described above. For this setting, REAR/TABLE or REAR/CEILING must be selected for INSTALLATION in the menu group 4 on the menu. (See page 17.)

Installation methods

1. Installing on a tabletop

8 cm (3-1/8 inch) to the lens center

Table height

This unit projects images when set on a tabletop with a certain height in front of the screen. The table height and [H] described on page 6 must be determined first to decide on how high the screen should be set for the best result. The height from this units bottom to the lens center is 8 cm (3-1/8 inch). The position of the screen (the height from the floor to the screen bottom) can be easily determined by adding these three figures. For example, if you are setting this unit on a tabletop with a height of 50 cm (20 inch), you need to set your screen at a height of <50 cm + 8 cm + [H] cm (20 inch + 3-1/8 inch + [H] inch)> from the floor.

Adjusters

Adjusting with the adjusters When this unit is installed on a tabletop, the position of the image can be adjusted by using the adjusters located at the bottom front of this unit. Adjust the height by rotating the movable part of the two screw- type adjusters at the front bottom of this unit. The adjustment range of these adjusters is 2.5 cm (1 inch). If loosened completely, they will come off.

Notes

When an ordinary video signal or an interlaced video signal of a 24- frame/second film is input, the interlace/progressive (i/p) conversion circuit built into this unit automatically identifies the type of signals. If the signals of a film is input, the FILM indicator lights up in blue. Some contents cannot be correctly detected.

When the interlaced video signals of a film is input, this unit detects it and the FILM indicator lights up in blue.

When the signal from an A/V component or computer is input, it does not go through i/p conversion, and the FILM indicator does not light up in this case.

This unit is compatible with VGA, SVGA, XGA, and SXGA for the RGB signal from a computer. It is recommended to set to XGA to enjoy clearer images when the screen aspect ratio is set to 4:3.

When this unit is set to display the output signals on both the LCD of a notebook computer and on an external monitor, the image may not be correctly displayed on the external monitor. In this case, set this unit to display on only the external monitor. Refer to the operation instructions of the computer for details.

Press the AUTO button located on upper left on the remote control if the image is not correctly projected (black or distorted images) when the input signal is switched.

STILLfreezing the image Press the STILL button on the remote control to capture the desired frame of a moving image. This function can be effectively used to adjust the image quality. Press the STILL button again to resume normal projection.

HIDEturning off the image temporarily Press the HIDE button on the remote control to turn off the image temporarily. Press the HIDE button again to bring back the image that has been turned off.

Glossary

DLP technology This stands for Digital Light Processing. DLP uses the DMD optical semiconductor chip developed by Texas Instruments.

Component video signal This signal is sent with its luminance signal and color signal independent. It creates higher image quality compared with an ordinary composite video signal because it bypasses the mixing and separating circuits. This signal is sent in three lines: the luminance signal (Y) and two color difference signals (PB/CB, PR/CR).

S video signal S stands for Separate. This signal is sent with its luminance signal (Y) and color signal (C) separately. A 4-pin mini DIN connector and cable are used for connection.

Composite video signal This is the most common type of video signal. The luminance signal and color signal are sent combined in one line. Mixing and separating processes are necessary on both the send and receive sides. A pin cable is used for connection.

RGB signal An RGB signal transmits color information by using a numeric representation of the primary colors of red, green and blue separately. When the signal is received, it can be expressed in various colors by adding and mixing colors. This signal is widely used for sending and receiving color images between computers. Horizontal and vertical sync signals are also necessary.

D connector * This connector is designed for the Japanese D format only.

This connector is used for sending and receiving the image signal between the latest type of A/V components. This connector can receive the component signal by using a D connector cable. There are five levels (D1D5) of perfor- mance characteristics. This unit is compatible with D1, 2, 3, and 4.

DVI connector A digital RGB signal is sent from a computer to this connector differencially. A 24-pin connector and cable are used for connection.

Standby The state under which the circuit to receive infrared-signals from the remote control is activated but other main circuits are turned off. A small amount of power is consumed in this state.

Test pattern Test patterns are stored in this unit to adjust the position and focus of the projected image on the screen.

Aspect ratio (aspect) This basically means the length-to-width ratio of an image. This units menu deals with two kinds of aspect ratio: the screen aspect that sets the length-to-width ratio of the screen to be used, and the display aspect that changes the size and aspect ratio of the images to be projected for different types of input signal.

Additional information

Ceiling mount bracket This is the mounting hardware used when hanging this unit from the ceiling. Two types of ceiling mount bracket (low ceiling and high ceiling) are available for different heights of the ceiling. These mounts are optional.

Interlace The common type of scanning for most televisions. It divides into two fields: even and odd numbered lines of the field to build one frame of an image.

Progressive This displays all the scanning lines of the entire frame at one time. It greatly reduces the flicker that is more noticeable on a larger screen to create a sharp and smooth image. This unit projects by progressive scanning.

Key stone If this unit has an elevation or depression angle when project- ing on the screen, the image is distorted in a trapezoid. This item electrically corrects the distortion. Two types of correction are available; Normal correction and Full correction.

Letter box This is the method to convert the content of a film in landscape orientation to 4:3 signal. It is possible to watch the landscape image without trimming by adding a black bar on the top and bottom of the screen. Vertical resolution may be sacrificed to some extent.

Squeeze This method horizontally squeezes the film so that the aspect ratio is 4:3 when recording the film on a video medium. The squeezed image must be passed through the desqueezing circuit otherwise the image remains in a slender shape.

Vista size One of the film sizes. The aspect ratio is 1.85:1 in North America and 1.66:1 in Europe.

Cinema scope size This is the widest film size that uses a 70 mm film. The aspect ratio is 2.35:1.
