Usage Notice

Eye Safety Warnings

Avoid staring directly into the projector beam at all times.

Minimize standing facing into the beam. Keep your back to the beam as much as possible.

A stick or laser pointer is recommended to avoid the need for the user to enter the beam.

Ensure that projectors are located out of the line of sight from the screen to the audience; this ensures that, when presenters look at the audience, they do not also have to stare at the projector lamp. The best way to achieve this is by ceiling-mount- ing rather than floor or table-mounting the projector.

When projector is used in a classroom, adequately supervise students when they are asked to point out something on the screen.

In order to minimize the lamp power needed, use room blinds to reduce ambient light levels.

Each display mode (Present/ Bright/ Movie/ sRGB/ User) has its own color temperature and can memorize user’s selection.

When you adjust the color setting item, the color temperature will be set as “User” automatically. And this set “User” is the same for all display mode.

Different color setting will be memorized at 4 different source groups. But they will be same under same source.

1.DVI / VGA

2.Component-p (480p/576p/720p/1080i)

3.Component-i (480i/576i)

4.Video / S-Video

When we adjust color setting the current color temperature will be memorized before it auto switch to “User”. Because the memorized color temperature will be a base of “User”. For example:

1.) Colour temp. is Low.

2.) User create his favorite color based on “Low” setting of colour temperature. So when user switch “Colour temp.” to “User”, will find the image color temperature close to “Low”.
