MANUAL.

This Acrobat (IE: a PDF file) version of the Pioneer RM-V4000 / 5000 manual was made from the original digital document and scanning an existing manual. Because of this, there are many less then perfect pages and hand written comments.

As Pioneer is constantly working towards providing the best possible documentation for our products, there may be an improved version of this document available. Please contact your Pioneer representative for additional information.

To turn off the power, use the POWER switch - of the unit, the RS-232C control, or wired remote control (optional). (If turned off using the main POWER switch or by disconnecting the power cable from the outlet, the settings of the above 7 to - switches and the state of the TV SYSTEM and convergence memory will not be recorded on the memory.)

Consequently when starting up or stopping the whole system by AC ON/OFF in setup conditions for a demonstration, it is necessary to turn off the power using the above method to record each setting in the memory.

*: Counts only when the power is ON and signal has been input to the input function selected. If the main POWER switch is turned off or the power cable is pulled out of the outlet while the power is on before one hour has passed, errors will occur in the count.

CHAPTER 3. INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY

1. INSTALLATION CONDITIONS

(1) Installing Ground

1Ground

The ground must be flat and horizontal. It should be able to bear the weight of the system.

For wooden floors, if the part receiving the weight of the system lies at the center between the reinforcement beams below the floor, the floor may become deformed or may curve inwards. In such cases, lay a more than 12 mm thick board below the system to distribute the weight of the system on the floor.

For concrete floors, it may not be possible to install the system horizontally due to the roughness of the floor. In such cases, do the same as above.

When installing the system on a installation table, always place the screen unit and cabinet on the same level of the installation table. The screen should also be more than 15 mm inside the edges of the installation table.

The bottom of the screen is

More than 15 mm not on the installation table.

(Fig.3-1)

2How to culculate weight

Example : 40-inch Cube × 16screens

 

 

 

 

RM-V4000V (Multi-Projection Unit)

50kg × 16

=

800kg

RMS-V4011 (Projection Screen Kit)

11kg × 16

=

176kg

RMF-V4011 (Projection Frame)

27kg ×

16

=

432kg

RMS-V112 (Projectin Install Table)

54kg ×

4

=

216kg

Total : 1744 kg + α (screw, others)

Note) Other than the above weights, the weight of the person installing the system are also added. For 16 screens, about 3 to 4 persons=240 kg (15% of total weight).

25

INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY

(11) Lighting

The projection screen kit (RMS-V4011/V5011) will not reflect like TV screens when exposed to external light, but may reflect if directly exposed to strong lights such as spotlight. Therefore, make sure that the screens are not exposed to direct spotlight.

For certain installation location conditions, a glass sheet may have to be attached to the screen surface. In this case, as there will be reflection by external light, consider the installation position, etc. carefully.

As the actual intended images of the system may not be obtained in very bright locations, consider the position of lighting and direction of sunlight when installing the system.

(12) Effects of Earth Magnetism

Due to effects of earth magnetism, the position of the image displayed will differ according to the installed direction. Difference is about several mm in the up/down/left/right directions, but the degree of change varies according to the strength of the earth magnetism of each area.

Misconvergence may also occur due to slight rotations.

Therefore, when performing adjustments before bringing the system into the installing location. Perform the adjustments in the same direction and angle as installation, perform adjustments again at the final location decided.

If the system is used at a fixed position, adjust it at the final position used.

The system is not only affected by earth magnetism but by the following magnetisms generated by various items in its surrounding as well.

Steel frame of building

Power cables on the floor

Large speaker systems

Special equipment (Those generating magnetic force)

Metallic installation table, frames, etc.

31

INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY

2Opening the packaging

Open from the big ones first and put the small packagings inside the empty big packagings. Also dispose or store the packagings.

Do not mix up the opened items with those still in the packaging.

Move the empty packagings somewhere else so that they will not come in the way. Next, obtain an assembly space that is as wide as possible.

*Turn down the opened packagings upside down to differentiate them from those not opened. Do not lose accessories, the warranty card, etc.

INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY

(2) Assembling the System

The basic procedure for assembling the system is as follows.

1Assemble the projection stand (RM-V112/RMA-V5010).

2Mount a one-link mount unit . (40-inch only)

3Assemble the projection frame (RMF-V4011/V5011).

4Mount the multi-projection unit (RM-V4000V/V5000V).

5Mount the projection screen kit (RMS-V4011/V5011).

6Mount the top board , side board , rear panel.

The basic procedure for assembling the system for rental-use is as follows.

1Assemble the projection stand (RM-V112).

2Mount the 2-link/3-link mount unit (RMA-V2050/V2060).

3' Mount the multi-projection unit (RM-V4000V) to the projection cabinet (RMF-V4011R).

4' Mount the projection cabinet (RMF-V4011R).

The above procedure is recommended. It is explained below.

1 Projection Install Tables (RM-V112/RMA-V5010)

Place the installation tables (RM-V112) at the specified position and link them together with the bolts and nuts specified. First tighten the bolts and nuts temporarily, and after all have been linked, check their height differences and if they are horizontal before tightening the nuts and bolts firmly.

Do not tighten the adjusters at the legs as their final positions have to be adjusted after assembling all units.

To install at a height greater than the installation table when not using this table, make sure the strength is greater than required.

2 Mount Unit (RMA-V2050/V2060)

Place the mount unit on the stand and join them using the specified bolts and nuts.

As the horizontality, difference in level, etc. of the mount units form the basis of the whole system assembled, assemble them accurately.

If gaps are formed between the mount unit and the stand due to the difference in height, use the floor leveler of the stand to adjust the height, or place spacers between the mount unit and stand (metal plates about 1 to 2 mm thick).

When using several mount units, adjust their height, horizontality, etc.

In the case of the system for rental-use, mount the conventional mount units (RMA-V2050/V2060) using the conventional method. For details, refer to the RM-V2000A technical manual.

[3]If necessary, attach the screw rivet (BEC1082) provided as the accessory of RMS-V4011. (Fig. 3-27)

(Fig. 3-27)

*This part is used to shield the light leaking from the big hole (ø 8) on the outermost side of the left and bottom projection units (diagonally shaded part in Fig. 3-28) after installing the system. Use it if necessary.

Screen units with this rivet cannot be attached outside the area indicated by the standing lines in fig. 3-28. (It will not connect to the adjoining units.)

(Fig. 3-28)

<Note>

Do not mistake the top and bottom of the screen unit. The side with the longer screw projecting out (side with transportation screw) is the top and the side with the 8 mm hole is the bottom.

Before mounting the screen unit to the cabinet, check that the transportation screw, protection panel, and black tape have been removed. (Do not remove the protection panel on the outer-most side when installing the system.)

Always tighten the linking bolts of the cabinet and screen unit with your hands, and tighten them as firmly as possible.

Put on gloves when stacking the screen units for protection and perform in twos.

To prevent the lenticular sheet from damage, mount the screen unit gently and do not subject it to vibration and shock.

CHAPTER 4. ADJUSTMENTS

1. ADJUSTMENT PREPARATIONS

(1) Wiring

1 Connection of Power Supply

The power supply can be connected to up to 3 units in a series using the AC outlets of Multi projection units. Connect the three units as one system to the external outlet.

The AC plug of Multi projection unit is a 3P with a ground pin. When connecting it to a normal outlet, use an exclusive 3P AC adapter.

The AC plug of Multi projection unit is a 3P with a ground pin. To prevent electric shocks, connect the ground pin to the ground when connecting the power supply.

2 Connection of signal cable

Use coaxial cables. Normally, if less than 15m, use 3C-2V. If less than 30m, use 5C-2V.

The signal transmission equipment and Multi projection units should be as close as possible to each other.

3 Connection of ABL link cable

By connecting the ABL link cables in cascade form, control signals (RS-232C, remote control signal) can be transmitted to all the units.

(2) Wiring Handling

Except for short-term installations such as events, etc., in normal long-term installations, adjust the length of the wiring appropriately taking into consideration the overall route to be wired.

Make sure the connection terminals are not subjected to direct weight and force. Tie the wires up in short-term use and bind them up properly in long-term use.

(3) Aging

After turning on the power, input the 100% white signal or moving images, and perform aging until Multi projection unit stabilizes (about 1 hour). If adjustments are performed without performing aging, as Multi projection unit will warm up and stabilize, convergence and white balance will become incorrect.

ADJUSTMENTS

When TV SYSTEM=AUTO

<VIDEO, Y/C Input)

Selects the convergence memory from MEMORY-1 or MEMORY-2 automatically according to the signals input (NTSC/PAL). <RGB Input>

Automatically selects the convergence memory as follows.

For NTSC input:MEMORY 1

For PAL input:MEMORY 2

Horizontal frequency 20 kHz to 28 kHz input:MEMORY 3

Horizontal frequency 28 kHz to 35 kHz input :MEMORY 4

When TV SYSTEM=NTSC

• The convergence memory is always set to MEMORY 1 regardless of the input signal.

When TV SYSTEM=PAL

• The convergence memory is always set to MEMORY 2 regardless of the input signal.

In standard settings, MEMORIES 1 to 4 are selected as described above, but MEMORIES 5 to 7 can be selected if preset using the remote control or commands of the Personal Computer.

When the input signal is NTSC only or PAL only, by setting the TV SYSTEM to NTSC or PAL, smooth input switching (no image distortion) will be possible.

Normally, no problems will be encountered with the above method. But if two or more types of signals are input to the same input function, convergence adjustment has to be performed according to the respective input source. (For example, when there is signal phase difference in each input source, when connecting several PCs and switching from outside, etc.). In such cases, use convergence adjustment memories 5 to 7 (MANUAL 1 to 3). The 5 to 7 convergence adjustment memories can be switched from outside using the Personal Computer.

Finally, examples of main uses by the system of these units are provided below.

For details of how to set the convergence memory (specific example), refer to ”3. Examples of Main Uses of Cube System”.

(3) White Balance Adjustment Memory

ADJUSTMENTS has altogether six white balance adjustment memories.

Color mode 1 (Normal)

Color mode 2 (Re-expose)

VIDEO, Y/C input memory RGB input memory Factory shipment memory

VIDEO, Y/C input memory RGB input memory Factory shipment memory

Four memories can be actually adjusted except the factory shipment memory. The factory shipment memory contains the normal white balance adjustment data and re-expose white balance adjustment data.

By setting to color mode 1 using the rear panel switch, etc., the white balance adjustment data can be switched by synchronizing with input switching. This is the same for color mode 2. If it is necessary to change color modes 1 and 2 using the input function, connect the PC and switch each time it is necessary.

(4) Combined Use of Remote Control and Personal Computer

Although it is possible to connect both the remote control (RU-V107) and Personal Computer, adjustments cannot be performed using both at the same time.

Remote control, Personal Computer commands and rear panel switches operated the latest are given priority. When the adjustment mode is set by the Personal Computer while adjusting with the remote control, the adjustment mode will be set by the Personal Computer, disabling adjustments to be performed using the remote control. If the adjustment mode is set by the remote control using adjustments by the Personal Computer, adjustments by the Personal Computer will be disabled. Furthermore, if the rear panel switches are operated when the adjustment mode is set by the remote control or Personal Computer, the adjustment mode is exited and the rear panel switches operations are started.

(5) Memory of Adjustment Data and Settings

When adjustments are ended in the adjustment mode such as convergence, white balance, etc., always exit the adjustment mode (AJN for Personal Computer, ADJ OUT key for remote control). If the power is turned off (AC OFF) without exiting the adjustment mode, a part of the adjustment data will not be preserved in the memory.

The input function, MULTI ON/OFF (peripheral light amount switching), COMBINATION ON/OFF (ABL link switching), COLOR MODE 1/2 (white balance switching), TV SYSTEM setting, and convergence memory state setting will be preserved in the memory only when the power is turned off using the remote control, command of a Personal Computer (POF) or the rear panel tact switch. The AC ON/OFF will not allow data to be preserved in the memory.)

When starting or stopping the system by AC ON/OFF in an installation condition for demonstration, use this method to preserve the conditions in the memory first.

58

ADJUSTMENTS

(6) Giving IDs

When several Multi projection units are used to compose the 9 screens or 16 screens (multi-screen), the ID is used to differentiate between Multi projection units. When the units are given IDs, by connecting the ABL link cable, commands can be transmitted by specifying the ID, and it is possible to operate only Multi projection unit corresponding to that ID by remote control operations.

<Giving IDs using Personal Computer>

(1) Adjustment Flowchart

The following shows the order for performing the adjustments generally required in the setup of the multi-projection system. For details, see the descriptions on the next page and later.

1 Give ID

2 Adjust the size of each screen

3 Adjust the convergence of each screen

ìï 4 Adjust the joining of the screens

5Check that there is no information missing and color deviation on the moving image.

If information is missing or color has deviated, return to 2 and readjust.

6 Adjust the white balance of each screen.

7 Adjust the ABL level

8Check the ABL level and white balance using the video actually transmitted.

If there is deviation, return to 6 and readjust

9 Adjust the color tone using the video actually transmitted.

0 Recheck 6 to 8

chart.

The center can be found easily by pasting threads in the

 

spaces of the protection panels at the screen frame.

 

2 Adjustment signal input

For adjusting size...Monoscope, etc.(EX.LD Test disc GGV1013, FRAME NO. 18001)

For screen joining, linearity, color adjustment...Use adjustment signals such as , cross-hatch, etc. (EX.LD Test disc GGV1013, FRAME NO. 14401)

If signals are created in the multi video processor, use them.

For RGB inputs, generate the adjustment signals conforming to the above using the models actually used (PC, etc.), and check them via the expander actually used.

Marked color deviation

 

 

 

 

 

Depending on the user memory used, the image may

 

become distorted as shown in the figure on the right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this case, before adjusting the center, adjust

ADJUSTMENTS

3,4,7 center adjustment

Set to only green and adjust the center with V PHASE H PHASE .

When MULTI ON, as V PHASE does not move, adjust it at the splitter side.

If not possible, adjust with V STATIC

MULTI ON)

H PHASE

Three colors R, G, B move together

NOTE

Do not adjust the center using convergence such as

GH STATIC GV STATIC

Green POINT CONVER MODE , etc.

Considerable load will be imposed on the adjustment circuit, causing malfunctions.

GH STATIC

GV STATIC

Only Green moves

The center adjustment by H PHASE V PHASE adjusts the timing for displaying video signals and therefore current is not supplied to the deflection york.

Current is on the other hand supplied to the convergence york in the center adjustment by convergence such as GH STATIC GV STATIC GREEN POINT CONVER MODE , etc. and therefore imposes load on the circuit.

68

ADJUSTMENTS

Current is also supplied to the vertical deflection york with V STATIC . If supplied excessively, distortion will occur as shown in the right figure.

No distortion occurs in adjustments by V PHASE .

Explanation of H BLK L and H BLK R Adjustments

H BLK L and H BLK R adjustments are performed to obtain the optimum convergence adjustment wave form when the display range changes due to changes in the H SIZE and frequency.
