Federal Communications Commission (FCC Statement)

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area may cause harmful interference, in which case the user will be responsible for correcting any interference.

Guarantee and Compensation

Barco provides a guarantee relating to perfect manufacturing as part of the legally stipulated terms of guarantee. On receipt, the purchaser must immediately inspect all delivered goods for damage incurred during transport, as well as for material and manufacturing faults Barco must be informed immediately in writing of any complaints.

The period of guarantee begins on the date of transfer of risks, in the case of special systems and software on the date of commissioning, at latest 30 days after the transfer of risks. In the event of justified notice of complaint, Barco can repair the fault or provide a replacement at its own discretion within an appropriate period. If this measure proves to be impossible or unsuccessful, the purchaser can demand a reduction in the purchase price or cancellation of the contract. All other claims, in particular those relating to compensation for direct or indirect damage, and also damage attributed to the operation of software as well as to other services provided by Barco, being a component of the system or independent service, will be deemed invalid provided the damage is not proven to be attributed to the absence of properties guaranteed in writing or due to the intent or gross negligence or part of Barco.

If the purchaser or a third party carries out modifications or repairs on goods delivered by Barco, or if the goods are handled incorrectly, in particular if the systems are commissioned operated incorrectly or if, after the transfer of risks, the goods are subject to influences not agreed upon in the contract, all guarantee claims of the purchaser will be rendered invalid. Not included in the guarantee coverage are system failures which are attributed to programs or special electronic circuitry provided by the purchaser, e.g. interfaces. Normal wear as well as normal maintenance are not subject to the guarantee provided by Barco either.

The environmental conditions as well as the servicing and maintenance regulations specified in the this manual must be complied with by the customer.

2.1Safety warnings

WARNING: Before installing the projector, read first the safety instructions in the safety manual (R5975258) delivered with the projector.

Insure that the projector is installed in an easy to evacuate room in case of a lamp explosion.

Mercury Vapor Warnings

Keep the following warnings in mind when using the projector. The lamp used in the projector contains mercury. In case of a lamp rupture, explosion there will be a mercury vapor emission. In order to minimize the potential risk of inhaling mercury vapors:

Ensure the projector is installed only in ventilated rooms.

Replace the lamp module before the end of its operational life.

Promptly ventilate the room after a lamp rupture, explosion has occurred, evacuate the room (particularly in case of a pregnant woman).

Seek medical attention if unusual health conditions occur after a lamp rupture, explosion, such as headache, fatigue, shortness of breath, chest-tighteningcoughing or nausea.

2.2Installation guidelines

Ambient temperature check

Careful consideration of things such as image size, ambient light level, projector placement and type of screen to use are critical to the optimum use of the projection system.

Max. ambient temperature : 40 °C or 104 °F

Min. ambient temperature : 0 °C or 32 °F

The projector will not operate if ambient air temperature falls outside this range (0°C- 40°C or 32°F-104°F).

Environment

Do not install the projection system in a site near heat sources such as radiators or air ducts, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust or humidity. Be aware that room heat rises to the ceiling; check that temperature near the installation site is not excessive

CAUTION: Harmful Environmental Contamination Precaution

Environment condition check

A projector must always be mounted in a manner which ensures the free flow of clean air into the projectors ventilation inlets as well as free flow at the ventilation outlets. The installation must also allow easy access to the consumable parts ( dustfilters, lamps, ...) For installations in environments where the projector is subject to airborne contaminants such as that produced by smoke machines or similar (these deposit a thin layer of greasy residue upon the projectors internal optics and imaging electronic surfaces, degrading performance), then it is highly advisable and desirable to have this contamination removed prior to it reaching the projectors clean air supply. Devices or structures to extract or shield contaminated air well away from the projector are a prerequisite, if this is not a feasible solution then measures to relocate the projector to a clean air environment should be considered. Make sure that the projector never runs with dirty dustfilters as this will dramatically reduce the lifetime of the consumables. It is advised to clean the dustfilters on a regular basis and to replace them at any lamp change. Barco reserves itself the right to refuse warranty replacement of consumables if they have been used in a projector with dirty airfilters. Only use the manufactures recommended cleaning kit which

2. Installation Guidelines

has been specifically designed for cleaning optical parts, never use industrial strength cleaners on a projectors optics as these will degrade optical coatings and damage sensitive optoelectronics .

Failure to take suitable precautions to protect the projector from the effects of persistent and prolonged air contaminants will culminate in extensive and irreversible ingrained optical damage. At this stage cleaning of the internal optical units will be non-effectiveand impracticable. Damage of this nature is under no circumstances covered under the manufactures warranty and may deem the warranty null and void. In such a case the client shall be held solely responsible for all costs incurred during any repair. It is the clients responsibility to ensure at all times that the projector is protected from the harmful effects of hostile airborne particles in the environment of the projector. The manufacture reserves the right to refuse warranty repair if a projector has been subject to wantful neglect, abandon or improper use.

What about ambient light ?

The ambient light level of any room is made up of direct or indirect sunlight and the light fixtures in the room. The amount of ambient light will determine how bright the image will appear. So, avoid direct light on the screen. Windows that face the screen should be covered by opaque drapery while the set is being viewed. It is desirable to install the projection system in a room whose walls and floor are of non-reflectingmaterial. The use of recessed ceiling lights and a method of dimming those lights to an acceptable level is also important. Too much ambient light will ‘wash out’ of the projected image. This appears as less contrast between the darkest and lightest parts of the image. With bigger screens, the ‘wash out’ becomes more important. As a general rule, darken the room to the point where there is just sufficient light to read or write comfortably. Spot lighting is desirable for illuminating small areas so that interference with the screen is minimal.

Which screen type ?

There are two major categories of screens used for projection equipment. Those used for front projected images and those for rear projection applications. Screens are rated by how much light they reflect (or transmit in the case of rear projection systems) given a determined amount of light projected toward them. The ‘GAIN’ of a screen is the term used. Front and rear screens are both rated in terms of gain. The gain of screens range from a white matte screen with a gain of 1 (x1) to a brushed aluminized screen with a gain of 10 (x10) or more. The choice between higher and lower gain screens is largely a matter of personal preference and another consideration called the Viewing angle. In considering the type of screen to choose, determine where the viewers will be located and go for the highest gain screen possible. A high gain screen will provide a brighter picture but reduce the viewing angle. For more information about screens, contact your local screen supplier.

Image size

The projector is designed for projecting an image size with a screenwidth from 1.00m (3.3ft) to 6.00m (19.7ft) with an aspect ratio of 4 to 3.

Image retention

Image retention can affect LCD projectors, in extreme cases, permanent “burn” can occur if still/repetitive images are left on the screen for long periods of time. Such damage to the panels is NOT covered by warranty.

Please ensure that the following precautions are taken to avoid this phenomenon :

1.Use a screensaver (that moves)

2.Periodically change/alter any background images on the desktop

3.Turn off the projector when not in use.

2. Installation Guidelines

2.4.5Cleaning the lens

To minimize the possibility of damage to optical coatings, or scratches to lens surfaces, we have developed recommendations for cleaning. FIRST, we recommend you try to remove any material from the lens by blowing it off with clean, dry deionized air. DO NOT use any liquid to clean the lenses.

Necessary tools

TorayseeTM cloth (delivered together with the lens kit). Order number : R379058.

How to clean the lens ?

Proceed as follow :

1.Always wipe lenses with a CLEAN TorayseeTM cloth.

2.Always wipe lenses in a single direction.

Warning: Do not wipe back and forwards across the lens surface as this tends to grind dirt into the coating.

3.Do not leave cleaning cloth in either an open room or lab coat pocket, as doing so can contaminate the cloth.

4.If smears occur when cleaning lenses, replace the cloth. Smears are the first indication of a dirty cloth.

CAUTION: Do not use fabric softener when washing the cleaning cloth or softener sheets when drying the cloth.

Do not use liquid cleaners on the cloth as doing so will contaminate the cloth.

Other lenses can also be cleaned safely with this TorayseeTM cloth.

Beside the standard RGB, component and sync signals, the extended mode of the 5 Cable input makes processing of additional signals possible.

How to select a source on the 5 cable input ?

1.Press 1 on the RCU

Note: Another way for selecting this input is via the Menu

Component Video signals (PR/Y/PB)

Some interfaces use progressive output signals with a double line frequency of 32 kHz. The video decoder used for the video signals is not appropriate for these signals since it can only handle 16 kHz signals. This signal has therefore to be internally redirected, this is done in the Source selection menu by selectingData on BNC’s instead ofComponent video and by selectingPr/Y/Pb in the advanced settings of theImage file menu.

3.4Composite Video Input

Composite video connection

A Composite video signal is often available on a yellow cinch connector of a Camera, VCR or DVD player, in this case you will need an adapter cable cinch/BNC to connect to Video input of the RGB board.

3.6Digital Visual Interface (DVI) input

DVI

Digital Visual Interface is a display interface developed in response to the proliferation of digital flat panel displays.

The digital video connectivity standard that was developed by DDWG (Digital Display Work Group). This connection standard offers two different connectors: one with 24 pins that handles digital video signals only, and one with 29 pins that handles both digital and analog video. This standard uses TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential Signal) from Silicon Image and DDC (Display Data Channel) from VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association).

DVI can be single or dual link.

A countdown time of 4 minutes is triggered before the projector is shut down (standby).

If the lamp runtime has not been reset, the alert message will reappear at the next start up (with again 4 minutes countdown time). This alert message can be escaped with MENU orBACK, but the countdown continues.

Contact a qualified Barco technician for lamp replacement.

In Dual mode the lamp end of lifetimes are reached at the same time, however if in dual lamp mode one lamp has been used more than the other (for example if the projector has been working temporarily in single mode), one lamp will reach its end of lifetime sooner than the other lamp, which brings us to the Single mode operation.

WARNING: Using a lamp for more than x hours is dangerous as the lamp could explode.

The lamp runtime reset as well as the lamp replacement can only be done by a Barco authorized technician.

4.5Lamp error

What happens in case of a lamp error ?

When a lamp error occurs in dual mode, a dialogbox is displayed informing the user of the steps to be taken.

4.7Projector address

Overview

Address setting

Displaying and Programming addresses into the RCU

4.7.1Address setting

Projector address

Address installed in the projector to be individually controlled.

Common address

Default address. Projector will always execute the command coming from a RCU programmed with that common address.

Why a projector address ?

As more than one projector can be installed in a room, the separate projector should be separately addressable with an RCU or computer. Therefor each projector has its own address.

Set up an individual Projector Address.

The set up of a projector address can be done via the software.

Projector controlling.

Every projector requires an individual address between 0 and 255 which can be set in the Installation menu.

When the address is set, the projector can be controlled by :

RCU for addresses between 0 and 9.

computer, e.g. IBM PC (or compatible), Apple MAC, etc. for addresses between 0 and 255.

A projector will respond to a RCU set to the common address ’0’ regardless of what address is set in the projector itself (common address of projector should also be “0” ).

The RCU is default programmed with address 0 , ’common address’.

If it is necessary to control a specific projector, then enter the projector address into the RCU (only when that address is between 0 and 9). The projector with the corresponding address will listen to that specific RCU.

R5976367 BARCOIQ GRAPHICS 500 01/02/2007

 

39

4. Getting started

Some projectors may operate in domestic environments where other equipments may listen to the common address “0” , therefore the common address can also be set to “1”.

4.7.2Displaying and Programming addresses into the RCU

Displaying the Projector Address on the Screen.

1.Press the Address key (recessed key on the RCU) with a pencil. The projector’s address will be displayed in a ’Text box’

To continue using the RCU with that specific address, it is necessary to enter the same address with the digit buttons (address between 0 and 9) within 5 seconds after pushing the address key. For example : if the Address key displays projector address 003, then press "3" digit button on the RCU to set the RCU’s address to match the projector’s address. Do not press 0–0–3 .This will address the remote control to ’0’ and control all projectors in the room. If the address is not entered within 5 seconds, the RCU returns to its default address (zero address) and controls then all projectors in the room.

Address 0 (or 1) should always allow communication with the projector since it is a common address.

Displaying the Projector Address in Standby.

1.Press the Address key (recessed key on the RCU) with a pencil. All the LED’s on the front of the projector go out.

Then LED1 starts blinking green the number of hundreds. After that LED2 starts blinking the number of tens. Finally LED3 starts blinking green the number of units. If this is done, the original status of the leds is restored.

7.2Aspect ratio

Aspect ratios

The standard aspect ratio used in broadcast television is the 4:3 ratio. However, most of the DVD sources use nowadays the widescreen 16:9 or even the cinemascope 2.35:1 aspect ratio.

Some DVD sources may even use the anamorphic 16:9 or anamorphic 2.35:1 to take advantage of the higher vertical resolution offered by the 4:3 ratio. The “anamorphic” term means that the original widescreen image is squeezed in order to fit the 4:3 aspect ratio.

We can conclude that the thumb rule for DVD projection is to always leave the projector in 4:3 format except when dealing with anamorphic sources where the 16:9 setting allows the best reproduction.

The Auto function calculates an aspect ratio based on the information stored in the image files.

Selecting Auto in case of a Video source may shrink the image horizontally

Native resolution of the LCD panels = 1366 pixels x 1024 pixels (4:3)

Reality(SXGA+)

Native resolution of the LCD panels = 1400 x 1050 pixels (4:3)

What can be done ?

The aim here is to always show the resolution of the source independently of the resolution of the LCD panels. This way better image reproduction is obtained since no up or down scaling is done on the source.

Note that native resolution refers here to the source and does thus only have sense when handling data sources (greyed out for video sources).

Depending on the type of projector the “show native resolution” function will handle the sources as follows:

7.7Blanking

Blanking in the Image menu

The blanking in general allows to blank unwanted video information (noise in the top or bottom of the image).

The blanking in the image menu is the same as in the Display settings menu except for the fact that here the blanking settings are stored in the image files. In other words each custom file or source has its own blanking values.

See the blanking procedure in the Display settings menu.

If the selected source is not entirely displayed always check first the blanking settings in the image menu since the active custom file may contains blanking.

7.8Input balance

Introduction: Unbalanced color signals

When transporting signals, there is always a risk of deterioration of the information contained in the signals.

In case of information contained in the amplitude of the signals which is the case of data color signals (R, G, B),image 7-24 ,weare quite sure that the amplitude of these color signals is subject to alterations.

An example of alteration may be a DC component added to the signal, in the form of a DC offset repositioning the black level, since this black level (“brightness”) will become crucial later on ( clamping circuit) it will result in “black not being black”.

Another value that is subject to alteration is the amplitude of the signal, resulting in an altered “Gain” of the signal (“white level” orcontrast ).

The alterations of the three color signals will happen independently i.e. the colors will end to be unbalanced, image 7-25

One can conclude here that a good color tracking can only be met by using three previously (input) balanced color signals

Analog Digital Conversion

The analog color signals must pass through an Analog/Digital conversion circuit prior to any digital processing in the PMP. A typical ADC transforms the analog value into an 8 bit coded digital signal.

The graphic shows that when converting a signal containing a DC offset component the range of the converter is not optimally used.

One can conclude here that a good data conversion can only be met by using three previously (input) balanced color signals

The objective of input balancing

The objective in input balancing is to “set” the same black level and the same white level for the three colors of a particular input source.

Black level setting : brightness

White level setting : contrast

The same absolute black and white level for the three colors allows the same reference for Brightness and contrast control of the picture !

These two references also set the range in which the ADC will work for that particular source ( this explains also why each input balance setting is linked to a particular source and thus saved in the image file).

How can it be done ?

To balance the three color signals of a particular source there are conditions; in fact we must know the black and the white level of the source i.e. :

1.the source in question must be able to generate a white signal, ideally a 100% white (background) full screen pattern

2.the source in question must be able to generate a black signal, ideally a 100 % black (background) full screen pattern

White balance : In the projector, we will set the contrast for each color until we get a 100% light output picture when projecting a 100% white image (image A)

Black balance : In the projector, we will set the brightness for each color until we get a 0% light output picture when projecting a 100% black image (image B).

The changeover from min to max is indicated by the apparition of bright spots also called “digital noise”

An alternative to a full screen White/black pattern is the standard gray scale pattern, the white bar will be used for white balance and the black bar for black balance.

When switching from the dual mode to the single mode the lamp with the longest runtime is switched off.

If the runtimes are equal (if the projector has always been operated in dual mode) then lamp1 is switched out.

When switching to single mode, returning to the dual mode will not be possible in the first 60 seconds, Dual in the menu is greyed out and LED1 is flickering, thereby preventing hot restrike which may damage the lamp.

10.3 Power mode (only active in the iQG/R 500)

What can be done ?

The lamp power mode can be chosen to be in :

Full power mode : the total available power is used for the lamps (maximal brightness). This corresponds with the shortest lamp lifetime (1500 hours)

Economy mode : the lamps are dimmed, the lifetime is extended to 3000 hours

The choice of the Power mode must be done during the installation of the projector. The switching between the 2 modes can only be done 6 times and this only during the first 100 hours of the lamp lifetime (considering a dual lamp mode i.e. both lamps are used).

The Comb filter is by default enabled.

The AGC hold interval is the time interval in which the AGC is inhibited (AGC hold = no update in video amplitude measurement), the advanced parameter allows to choose a short or long hold interval.

A long AGC hold interval eliminates Macrovision® disturbances since the AGC is hold during a long interval, thus reducing the probability to encounter a Macrovision® pulse.

The sync locking setting is recommended for poor video signals (ex: poor TV signals).

Sharpness adjustment can be chosen to be coarse or fine.

It is recommended to use the default values.

The VCO range setting determines the frequency range of the VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator).

The Cpmp (Charge pump current) sets the low pass filter current.

Both VCO range & Cpmp are set by the image file, changing these settings is only indicated in for special purposes.

The horizontal sync polarity setting can be useful in case of a bad shaped edge, one can choose between the leading (active low) or trailing (active high) edge.

The input format settings are used to "tell more" about the signals connected on the BNC’s, it completes the information in the source selection menu.

-RGB is selected by default and means that an RGB signal is connected to the BNC’s

-PR/Y/PB must be selected whenever:

a progressive signal (32 kHz frequency video signal ) is connected to the BNC’s (select the source with Data on BNC’s in the Source selection menu).

one wants (in PiP mode) to visualize the component video signal in a Data window hereby adding a video image in the PiP layout.

What can be done ?

Forced file load allows to force or lock one particular custom file to be loaded for one particular input. This way one can guarantee that the same desired file is always used for a particular source.

For each layer (layer 1, layer 2, layer 3) we can enable or disable the forced file load. The specification for the file to be selected for each input on that layer is done via RS232.

see the RS232 User Guide for more information on the Forced file load command to be sent.

12.1Full screen representation

Purpose of the Full screen representation

The Full screen representation function forces to use the complete native resolution of the LCD panels independently of the native resolution of the source.

Note that the full screen representation does not preserve the aspect ratio of the source, i.e. when the aspect ratio of the active image is not the same as the projector (in this case 1920/1080 or 1.77:1), the image will end to be distorted (stretched or shrinked).

How to enable/disable the full screen representation ?

1.Press MENU to activate the Tool bar

2.Press → to select the Display setup item

3.Press ↓ to Pull down the Display setup menu

4.Use ↑ or ↓ to select Full screen representation

5.Press → to pull down the menu

6.Use ↓ or ↑ to select ON or OFF

7.Press ENTER

The full screen representation will not guarantee the best image quality, therefore the Show native resolution has to be selected.

The show native resolution function on the other hand forces to use the native resolution of the source. TheFull screen representation function overrules theshow native resolution function.

The aspect ratio setting is greyed out when enabling the full screen representation.

12.2 Startup screen

At that time it is strongly recommended to replace or clean the dustfilter under the X-cube.Failing to do so, will strongly reduce the lifetime of the LCD’s and the analyzers.

The manufacturer reserves itself the right to refuse warranty repair if the projector was working with dirty dustfilters.

GLOSSARY

AGC

Automatic Gain Control: allows an automatic amplitude (gain) control of the incoming video signal

ANSI 73.11

American power plug to connect the power cord to the wall outlet.

CEE7

European power plug to connect the power cord to the wall outlet.

Common address

Default address. Projector will always execute the command coming from a RCU programmed with that common address.

Component Video

In Component Video the term component describes a number (3) of elements that are needed to make up the video picture, these components areR-Y/Y/B-Y.A composite video signal on the other hand contains all the information needed for the color picture in a single channel of information

DVI

Digital Visual Interface is a display interface developed in response to the proliferation of digital flat panel displays.

The digital video connectivity standard that was developed by DDWG (Digital Display Work Group). This connection standard offers two different connectors: one with 24 pins that handles digital video signals only, and one with 29 pins that handles both digital and analog video. This standard uses TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential Signal) from Silicon Image and DDC (Display Data Channel) from VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association).

DVI can be single or dual link.

Graphics

Native resolution of the LCD panels = 1024 pixels x 768 pixels (4:3)

PiP

PiP stands for "Picture in Picture" and allows to display multiple windows containing each of them an image. The windows may be of the video or data type.

Projector address

Address installed in the projector to be individually controlled.

Reality(SXGA)

Native resolution of the LCD panels = 1366 pixels x 1024 pixels (4:3)

Reality(SXGA+)

Native resolution of the LCD panels = 1400 x 1050 pixels (4:3)

SDI

Serial Digital Interface

Video Selector

The Video Selector is a graphical interface which allows an overview of the different video inputs (Composite Video andS-Video)and whether they are active (signal connected) or not as well as the selection of these different signals.
