Notice about system construction

For installation of multiple projectors into the same network with Network Unit.

Do not install multiple projectors with Network Units that have their default network settings to the same network. The use of the Network Units which have the default IP address set to the same network settings will cause IP addresses to collide and create a malfunction. When you install multiple projectors into the same network, configure the network with the following steps.

1.Change the IP address from the default IP address. To change the IP address, use the network setting menu on the projector. Please see item “Network Configuration” for further information ( p.18).

2.Make sure that there is no network equipment set with the same IP address in the network before connecting to the network.

3.When installing other projectors, follow the above steps to change the IP address and connect to the network.

In case of installing the projector with Network Unit into the network constructed with the DHCP/BOOTP server.

This Network Unit does not support the DHCP/BOOTP server. The static IP address must be manually configured. To use this product in this network environment, set it up so that the DHCP/BOOTP server does not assign the IP address configured to this product for another device on the network. Please consult your network administrator for further information.

Notes on timer setting

Up to 10 timer events can be registered. Timer events always operate according to the next valid event depending on the projector's power status. In the example below, event 3 turns on the projector so next event 4 (also turning on projector) will not be effective because the projector is already turned on. Similarly, when the projector is turned off by event 5, event 6 OFF will not be effective in turning it off again. But these secondary events (event 4 and event 6) will become effective if a person turns off the projector (after event 3 and before event 4) or turns on the projector (after event 5 and before event 6).

When the timer events are set at the same time, the last event set will override the previous events. For example, if there is an event like “On at 8:00 everyday” and then new event is set like “Off at 8:00 everyday”, only the last setting event is effective.

When the timer event ON occurs during cooling down period, this is invalid event because the projector cannot be turned on during this cooling down period.

Cancel the timer

To cancel the timer event, check the timer event you want to delete and then click Delete button.

The timer operates by using the clock function provided in this product. Before setting the timer, please confirm that the current date and time are set correctly. Timer and clock functions are functioning using a lithium battery provided in this product. When the battery runs down, the clock and timer functions will not operate correctly. Consult your local dealer for the replacement of battery. The replacement must be carried out by a qualified service personnel.
