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.

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.

2.4.5Cleaning 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 ?

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.

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.

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.

Overview

Displaying and Programming addresses into the RCU

Address installed in the projector to be individually controlled.

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

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.

 R5976491 IQ PRO G500 01/02/2007 37

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”.

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.

What can be done ?

The aspect ratio setting forces the projector to project an image using a defined aspect ratio :

The settings do not refer to the aspect ratio of the source !

Possible aspect ratio settings and their effect on different sources in the iQ.

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

7.3Show native resolution

Graphics

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

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)

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:

 Source Projected image Name Ratio Resolution Ratio Resolution Particularities Reality Particularities (SXGA+) Graphics xga 4:3 1024x768 4:3 1024x768 image centered +side image centered blanked sxga 5:4 1280x1024 5:4 1280x1024 image centered +side scroll image blanked sxga+ 4:3 1400x1050 4:3 1400x1050 image centered scroll image uxga 4:3 1600x1200 4:3 1600x1200 scroll image scroll image

Table 7-1

Show native resolution = ON in case of a Graphics(XGA) and Reality (SXGA+) iQ Pro projector

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.

 R 255 i2 : video information ∆ 0 i1 : superfluous information Black level Image 7-26

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

A B

Image 7-27

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.

Note: this minimal value is not necessary , provided that the 2 other colors are not influencing too much the color to be adjusted, in fact the aim is to minimize the effect of the two other colors since there is a risk of reaching too soon the 50% transition due to the contribution of these two other colors signals.

Remark on the input balance of a component video source

Before starting the Input Balance procedure, generate a signal with dominant white parts.

Input balance is also available for a component video source under following conditions:

A component video signal is present on the BNC’s

”Data on BNC’s” is selected in the Source selection menu

Cr/Y/Cb is selected in the Advanced menu of the corresponding image file

The procedure is the same as for a data source except:

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.

What are the different possibilities within the PiP mode ?

The input section of the IQ projector allows a multitude of combinations of different input signals which may be projected in the 4 windows of the PiP screen.

The PiP mode allows independent settings for each window:

Image settings : contrast, brightness, tint, color,...

Vertical and horizontal shift of each window all over the screen

Resizing of the window

Digital Zoom

What are the different lamp modes ?

Single mode

 R5976491 IQ PRO G500 01/02/2007 87

The projector will always switch to the lamp with the shortest runtime when the difference between the runtimes of lamp1 and lamp 2 reaches 100 hours, switching from one lamp to another happens only at switching on of the projector and not during operation.

When the lamp fails or reaches its maximum runtime the projector switches automatically to the other lamp without interrupting the projection.The failure is logged and the lamp will never be initialized in the future.

Image 10-3

Single mode operation: switching principle

Dual mode

Both lamps are working.

When one lamp fails, the projector continues the projection using the remaining lamp.

Image 10-4

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).

HI AGC Hold interval

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.

-HDTV-PR/Y/PBfor high definition component video signals.

It is recommended to use the default values.

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

14.2 Network functionality

What can be done ?

The network functionality allows the projector to perform several network functions thanks to network features which are required in most corporate environments:

Control & Management : wireless/wired (remote) control and monitoring of the projector(s) thanks to auser-friendlyGUI (the Client software).

Diagnostics : diagnostics through auser-friendlyGUI and automaticE-mailsending.

Easy file (MS PowerPoint,...) manipulation and projection using the DropZone interface.

Remote control of the projector by allowing the desktop to be shared over the network (theDropZone interface).

Streaming media : The projector’s onboard computer is streaming video data ready, i.e. allowing the decoding of video streaming data coming from a server via the LAN.

 124 R5976491 IQ PRO G500 01/02/2007

14. IQ Network

The network centric projector may be configured in the same way as a standard PC to support :

- SNMP service : provides diagnostics, basic control via SNMP messaging

-Microsoft Exchange services: for scheduling of projector tasks.

-Web client : offers an alternative to the Client software through a user-friendlyinternet based interface (includes almost the same features as the Client software)

See the Appendix “General guidelines on Network configuration” for general guidelines on how to enable these services.

What can be done ?

The projector allows a software client (client PC) to communicate locally with the server and hereby control the projector’s settings, in this case one has a point to point communication,image 14-25. The client PC or laptop communicating with the projector may be locally installed or may be remote, communication may then happen over a LAN,image 14-26

The projector performs the role of Server while the PC acts as a Client within the system.

The control and management client software incudes the possibility to create groups of projectors and that way control a whole fleet of projectors.

The configuration consisting of several remote or local meeting participants sharing the same information content is called a virtual meeting.

In this virtual meeting each meeting participant can participate to the meeting either in a passive way, by following the meeting on his local desktop (remote desktop sharing), or in an active way by controlling the server’s desktop (mouse and keyboard).

Control over the desktop can be requested, forwarded or released.

14.8.6 DropZone settings

What can be done ?

The Server settings on the Projector allow to configure the DropZone in several ways:

Disallow new meeting participants: New meeting participants will not be able to request desktop sharing or desktop control.

Disallow Launch file: Launching a file with the DropZone will be impossible when activating this setting, hereby preventing undesired content to be projected during a meeting.

Enable/disable desktop sharing at startup or logon.

How to setup the DropZone ?

1.Go to the server icon in the lower task bar of the server desktop and Click the right mouse button. A menu is displayed (image 14-71)

2.Select Settings

3.Select the DropZone tab(image 14-72)

Choosing True color as color depth setting will slow down the communication.

It is advised to leave the other Server properties as they are. If necessary Contact your IT administrator.

14.9 The Web client

Web based functionality

The aim of the web services is to allow each network client within the LAN environment to browse via its internet browser to the web client.

This may be seen as an alternative to the client software since the main control & diagnostic tools are also present. Its advantage resides in the fact that no software has to be installed on the local PC, the internet takes while the html page generation is done locally on the server.

How to access the web client via the internet browser ?

To access the web client, the http link has to be filled in on the client’s internet browser.

This http link contains the name of the projector/display i.e. the name under which it is identified within the LAN.

Image 14-73

Web interface

What can be done ?

The possibilities are mainly the same as on the client software.

The web interface allows a user friendly way to manage the projector/display, its use being straightforward and similar to the client interface (ref).

Requirements for the use of the Web client

Some components have to be installed or enabled on your local (client) operating system to allow access to the Web client.

See the Appendix “ General guidelines on network configuration” for general guidelines on how to enable these services. .

The minimal server software version should be V1.10 to allow the use of the Web client.

15. General guidelines on Network Configuration

15. GENERAL GUIDELINES ON NETWORK CONFIGURATION

Overview

General Network

The Internet and Web services

The installation of the iQ Pro in a Local Area Network must be done in the same way as the installation of a standard PC in that particular network meaning that the same rules and accepted practice should be respected.

The assistance of qualified IT personnel is advised.

15.1 General Network

An Administrator password has been installed for security reasons (worm and virus protection):

Password : Barco (case sensitive !)

Microsoft NT Domain

This can be configured in the Control Panel, under “System”, in the “Computer Name” tab, under the button “Network ID”. You’ll need some help from the Network Administrator, since you need special rights to do this.

TCP/IP

The iQ Pro uses TCP/IP networking, so it needs the IP address, network mask, broadcast address, gateway, dns, wins, etc. to be configured. This can be done in the Control Panel, under “Network Connections”. This can however be configured automatically, if your network uses DHCP.

15.2 The Internet and Web services

Internet access

If you want to access the Internet from the iQ Pro, and the projector is located behind a firewall, you will also need to configure the proxy to use. This can be done in the Control Panel, under “Internet Options”, in the tab “Connections”, under the button “LAN Settings”.

iQ Pro Web services

To use the iQ Pro web client, you might need to change the “LAN Settings” on your local computer

If the client thinks the projector is on the Internet, and tries to connect to it through the proxy, you can turn on the “Bypass proxy server for local addresses” feature, or add the projector to the Exceptions list under the “Advanced” button.

The “Internet Information Services(IIS) ” component has to be installed on the operating system.

SNMP

To enable management via the IQProSNMP Agent, you must enable the SNMP system service, and configure the communities accordingly.

This can be done in the Control Panel, under Administrative Tools, in the Services, under the entry “Management and Monitoring tools”. You may also need to enable SNMP in the iQ Pro Control Server in de suystem tray, see image below.

Microsoft Exchange and Outlook

To enable control via the Microsoft Exchange integration, you need to install, enable and configure the IQProEXCH module.

To enable control from Microsoft Outlook, you need to install, enable and configure the IQProEXCH module, and install an Outlook Form on the Exchange Server in your network.

A. Exchange

A. EXCHANGE

Introduction

Some parameters values are installation dependent, and are shown here as an example.

You may need assistance from you network administrator, IT Manager or MIS helpdesk to obtain the settings or to configure the projector for you, since this is a task description targeted to ‘Administrators’ and needs knowledge and/or permissions normally held by those persons.

It is advised that you first try to follow the procedure to obtain a working setup, before changing the settings for conforming to your local security requirements.

Use of this software requires a working Microsoft Exchange server installed somewhere in your corporate network.

A.1 Exchange Installation

A.1.1 Installation procedure

Creating a user account and mailbox

1.Create a user account in your NT Domain (on the projector).

The service will use this account to log on to the domain, and as credentials to authenticate to Microsoft Exchange to read the entries in the Calendar folder of the Mailbox.

2.Create a Mailbox for the projector’s account on the Microsoft Exchange Server (on your LAN). The NT Domain user created in step 1 should have read access to this Mailbox.

Server: “BARCOEXCHSRV”Mailbox: “Projector, IQPRO”User: BARCO\iqpro

Installing and configuring Microsoft Outlook (on the projector)

1.Install Microsoft Outlook on the Projector.

Note: To be able to access Microsoft Exchange, you need a Client Access License.

Once you have one of those, you also have a license to Microsoft Outlook.

Tip: Outlook can be installed from the Microsoft Exchange Server CDROM or from a Microsoft Office Suite Installation CDROM.

Since the IQ Pro has no CDROM drive, you may need to use a CDROM drive shared from a PC in the network.

Alternatively, you could use a USB CDROM drive.

2.Make sure the projector is part of the domain

Tip: This can be done in ControlPanel->System->ComputerName->Change

Tip: If the user cannot log on, the Local Administrator should add the right “Log on locally” for the user.

This must be configured in Start->ControlPanel->AdministrativeTools->LocalSecurity Policy

4.Configure Outlook

Profile Name: “MS Exchange Settings”

This is what the wizard proposes by default, and what is used in this document. Default Mail Client: yes

Note: Make sure that MS Outlook is the default Mail Client for this account.

You can do this afterwards from this configuration page: Start->ControlPanel->Internet

http://www.microsoft.com/mspress/troubleshooting/outlook/LS/101801.asp

Enabling the account

1. Log on to the projector as an Administrator for the next steps.

 R5976491 IQ PRO G500 01/02/2007 163

A. Exchange

For security reasons, you will probably not want to make the projector account part of one of the administrator groups.

2.Enable the account to be used by the “iQ Pro Exchange Integration” service

3.In the Tree of the “Local Security Settings” application, navigate to Security Settings->LocalPolicies->UserRight Assignment.

4.In the List, edit the “Log on as a service”, and add the account, in the example “BARCO\iqpro”.

Installing and configuring the iQProEXCH service

Step 1,2,3 refers to the manual installation. One can use the SETUP.EXE program instead.

1.Copy the file IQProEXCH.EXE to (eg.) C:\Program Files\BARCO\iQ Pro Server

2.Open a command line, and go to the that directory

3.Type the following command IQProEXCH /Service

4.To configure, right click the “IQ Pro Server” tray icon, and go to the tab “Exchange” Enter the credentials (image A-1,image A-2)

5.To enable the “IQProEXCH” service go to Control Panel->AdministrativeTools->Services->IQProExchange go to the TAB “General Startup” and Type: Automatic

Make the service use the correct account TAB Log On Select “Local System Account”

Check “Allow service to interact with desktop”

6.Start the service, or reboot the projector.

Image A-1system tray

server exchange tab

You should now be able to schedule commands from a Microsoft Exchange client such as Outlook

running on any computer on the local network, provided you have the necessary permissions on the

Calendar in the projector mailbox.

A.1.2 Troubleshooting

The file C:\Program Files\BARCO\IQ Pro Server\IQProEXCH.log and the “Event Log” may contain helpful information to diagnose what’s going wrong

What can go wrong and what to do ?

1.The log file contains “Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password

2.The log file contains “Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.” The user account must be given the “Log on as a service” permission. This is done in Start/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/ Local Security Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/User Right

 164 R5976491 IQ PRO G500 01/02/2007

A. Exchange

Assignment. In the list, add the user to the entry “Log on as a service

3.The log file contains “Could not log on with Profile ’MS Exchange Settings’” Make sure the profile exists. To check this, log in to the projector as the user (BARCO\iqpro), as the profile should be owned by the projector account, andOutlook-profilesareper-account.Start/Control Panel/Mail

4.The user cannot log on to the projector. The Administrator should add the right “Log on locally” for the user. This must be configured in the Start/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Local Security Policy

In the list, add the user to the entry “Log on as a service

5.When trying to start the service, the projector beeps, and the service stays in the ‘starting’ state

This happens when the service tries to display an error in a popup, but cannot access the desktop. Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services/IQPro Exchange

Check “Allow service to interact with desktop

You may need to end the process ‘IQProEXCH’ from the task manager.

6.The commands are not executed at the right time

Check the time of the computer and the timezone Start/Control Panel/Date and Time/Timezone

7.An Outlook dialog box is displayed stating that there is no default mail client.

Make sure that MS Outlook is the default Mail Client for this account. You can do this from this configuration page: Start/Control Panel/Internet Options/Programs/Email

You may need to do this as administrator, since the service is started as ‘Local System’ account.

A.2 Exchange Integration

Introduction

The projector must be configured to connect to a mailbox on a Microsoft Exchange server in the network, which is dedicated to the projector, and to which of course the projector has rights to connect to.

The commands should be put in the SUBJECT of an appointment in the Exchange Calendar of the projector. The Start Time and End Time of the appointments are used for timing info. The other fields (location, categories, body, … ) are not used by the software, and thus can be used to store extra information for the USERS of the projector mailbox.

A.2.1 Command

How are the commands build up ?

Command filename/filepath

The parameter filename is a filename relative to the “Receive” directory of the iQ Pro Control Server, which, in a default installation, would typically be the local folder “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Received” The parameterfilepath is an absolute path to a file.

The commands should be put in the SUBJECT of an appointment in the Exchange Calendar of the projector. This is a mailbox on a Microsoft Exchange server in the network, which is dedicated to the projector, and to which of course the projector has rights to connect to.

The command and the filename are separated by a space.

ON, STANDBY

The projector is put in the specified state at the beginning of this event. Beware that if the SBC (Single Board Computer) is to be powered-downduring STANDBY, that further events will not be processed, since the integration runs on that SBC.

PAUSE, LOGO

The projector is put in the specified state at the beginning of this event, and the state is undone at the end of this event. o A parameter ON or OFF can be specified to choose between the actions. This action will then be executed at the beginning. So “PAUSE from 12:00 to 13:00” is equivalent to “PAUSE ON at 12:00” + “PAUSE OFF at 13:00”

SWITCH SOURCE, SWITCH LAYOUT

The projector switches source or layout at the beginning of this event.

LAUNCH ATTACHMENT

The attachment is saved at the beginning of this event. Then the associated application is started. o At the end of the event, the application is killed. This can not be guaranteed if the application was already running on the projector. For example, if a web page is being displayed, and a second one is launched, the application is not started, but the original browser displays the page. In this case the second event can not control the browser. This is a limitation of the Windows platform.

STORE ATTACHMENT

The attachment is saved at the beginning of this event. The name of the attachment is used and the file is placed in the Receive folder.

STORE filename

The attachment is saved at the beginning of this event. The name filename is used and the file is placed in the Receive folder. For example “STORE MYFILE.PPS” will save the attached file to “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Received\MYFILE.PPS”

STORE FILE filepath

The attachment is saved at the beginning of this event. The path filepath is used as absolute filename. For example, the command “STORE FILE C:\My Videos\MYFILE.AVI” will store the attachment as C:\My Videos\MYFILE.AVI. This of course if permissions are correct and the directory C:\My Videos exists

DELETE filename

The file with name filename is deleted from the receive folder. For example “DELETE MYFILE.PPS” will delete “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Received\MYFILE.PPS”

DELETE FILE filepath

The file with absolute name filepath is deleted. For example, the command “DELETE FILE C:\My Videos\MYFILE.AVI” will store the attachment as C:\My Videos\MYFILE.AVI.

Drop down list

Besides the above commands some predefined commands can be selected from a drop down list in the iQPro tab.

4.at 14:30, lauch the PDF file that was stored in step 1 5

5.kill the application and put the projector in standby at 16:00

6.delete the PDF file that was stored in step 1

A.2.3 Microsoft Outlook Integration

To make things easier for users, you can install an Outlook Form that adds a tab called “iQ Pro” to the appointment. The form contains the most-usedcommands ineasy-tousedrop-downlists. It looks as follows:

 R5976491 IQ PRO G500 01/02/2007 167

A. Exchange

Image A-5

The form contains the functionality that a normal user should be able to use without consulting the documentation. The attachments, date and time fields must be edited in the “Appointment” tab.

Choosing items from the drop-downboxes fills in the subject.

By default, the layouts “Full-screen”and “2by2 raster” are defined in the form.

If you add layouts on the projector(s) or change the defaults, the user must type the name of the layout in the subject.

The form can be modified to make things easier for users, one can also add the defined layouts to the drop-downlist. This must be done from Outlook, in the menu“Tools->Forms->DesignThis Form”

Organizational Forms

The administrator should install Organizational Forms on the Exchange Server in the “Organizational Forms” library.

Default form

Now the form still needs to be set as a default for creating new items. When returning to the “Forms” tab in the “Calendar Properties” you should now see the “iQ Pro” template installed. Now go to the “General” tab and select the template as default for posting to the folder.

Image A-6

If the form was installed as an “Organizational Form”, you need to select the “Forms…” entry, which will display the “Choose Form” dialog,

A.2.4 Folder form

Folder form

Alternatively, the form can be installed for the Calendar folder only, by following the procedure described below

How to configure a folder form

1.In outlook, right-clickon the “Calendar” icon in the “Outlook Shortcuts” tab in the “Outlook Bar” to open the “Properties” page, whilelogged-onas the projector (Or display the “Folder List”, andright-clickthe “Calendar” folder to open the “Properties” page).

2.In the “Calendar Properties” dialog, go to the “Forms” tab, and click the “Manage…” button. (image A-8)

3.On the “Forms Manager” dialog, click the “Install…” button and select the file “iQ Pro.fdm”. (image A-9)

4.When returning to the “Forms” tab in the “Calendar Properties” you should now see the “iQ Pro” template installed. Now go to the “General” tab and select the template as default for posting to the folder. (image A-10)

A.2.5 Limitations and known “problems”

When launching 2 attachments with overlapping times it is possible for the application to exit at the end of the first period. For example, let’s say we try to display PRES1.PPT from 12:00 to 13:30, and PRES2.PPT from 13:00 to 14:30, it is possible for BOTH presentations to exit at 13:30. This is because Windows uses the same process to display both files, and activates them via DDE.

Image A-11

This is a limitation in the Microsoft Windows ShellExecuteEx API

Avoid overlapping schedules in this case, or change the associations in: My Computer->Tools->FolderOp-tions->FileTypes->(extension)

Try to disable DDE (under Edit with the default action, eg ‘open’, selected) and/or disable ‘Browse in same window’ or using a different viewer/player for the file type.
