Determining the Installation Place

Placing in Front of the Screen

Place the projector in front of the screen in such a manner that it is as perpendicular to the screen as possible.

Screen

Optical axis

A slight error in the projection angle can be corrected using the KEYSTONE button. (P31)

Placing on a Level Place

Place the projector on a level place.

• Make sure that the installation place is free from any obstacle that may block the

exhaust vent (fan) on the right side of the projector and the air intake vent (air filter) on the bottom of the projector.

• The screen must not be exposed to direct sunlight or light from lighting equipment. In a bright room, it is recommended to limit ambient lighting in order to improve the image quality.

Note

This projector can be hung from the ceiling (Ceiling mounted) with it turned up side down. When a translucent screen is used, the projector can project an image from behind the screen (Rear).

When the projector is hung from the ceiling or projector projects an image from behind the screen, the image must be inverted vertically or horizontally. (P61)

When hanging the projector from the ceiling, optional brackets (part No. RS-CL01) are required.

PROJECTOR THE INSTALLING

21

PROJECTOR THE INSTALLING

Adjusting the Projection Angle

The projection angle can be adjusted with the adjustable foot.

Before making this adjustment, connect the computer and AV equipment and project an image on the screen.

1 Lift the front of the projector and push the adjusting foot lock.

The adjustable foot extends with the spring force.

2 Adjust the projection angle while pushing the adjustable foot lock, and then release the lock.

With the adjustable foot, the projection angle can be adjusted up to 10 degrees. Adjust the longitudinal tilt of the projector to +/-20 degrees or less. If the tilt is more than 20 degrees above and below, a lamp problem can result.

If Keystone Distortion is Large

Extending the adjustable foot too far causes keystone distortion (the projected picture is trapezoidal). If the distortion is large, adjust the height of the pedestal of the projector.

The keystone distortion can be corrected using the KEYSTONE button. (P31)
