ELPDC02 High Resolution Document Imager is a
high resolution document camera that can be connected to all types of
projectors and display devices. From boardrooms to auditoriums, you
can show fine detail in a large variety of presentation materials.
The document camera’s upper lamps provide ample lighting for
printed material and 3-D objects, while its base lamps offer
illumination for overhead transparencies and film negatives.
Your document camera captures images at a resolution of
1024 × 768 pixels with a maximum shooting area of 13.8 × 10.2 in.
(350 × 260 mm). With its 10× zoom capability and true XGA
resolution, even 10 point type can be read clearly. And the document
camera’s support for S-Video and composite video provides additional
versatility.
You can connect the document camera to a wide range of computers,
including IBM® compatible PCs and laptops, Apple® Macintosh,®
Power Macintosh™ series (including G3 and G4 systems),
PowerBook® computers, many iMac™ and iBook™ series systems, and
high-end workstations such as the Sun® SPARCstation.™ Up to two
computers can be connected simultaneously.
Welcome 1
Getting the Most from Your
Document Camera
Depending on your presentation, you can take advantage of any or all
of these options:
■
Connecting to a projector or monitor
The document camera requires an output device, such as a
projector or monitor, to display its image. To connect the
document camera to these devices, see page 11.
■
Connecting to a laptop or other computer
You can connect up to two other video output sources, such as a
laptop and desktop computer. This is especially useful if your
projector has only one video input port. See page 14 for more
information.
■
Using the remote control
The remote control lets you control the lamps, zoom and focus
your image, and switch the display from the camera to a
computer. See Chapter 2 for details.

Notices
■
Ventilation – Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect
it from overheating, and these openings must not be blocked or covered.
The openings should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed,
sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This product should not be placed in a
built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation
is provided or the manufacturer’s instructions have been adhered to.
■
Place the document camera near a wall outlet where the plug can be
easily unplugged.
■
Placez l’appareil près d’une prise de courant où la fiche peut être débranchée

■
Power Sources – This product should be operated only from the type of
power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the
type of power supply to your home consult your appliance dealer or local
power company. For products intended to operate from battery power,
or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
■
Grounding or Polarization – This product may be equipped with either
a polarized 2-wire AC line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the
other) or a 3-wire grounding type plug (a plug having a third grounding
pin). The 2-wire polarized plug will fit into the power outlet only one
way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into
the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still fails to fit, contact your
electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug. The 3-wire grounding type plug will fit

unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to
replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
grounding type plug.
■
Power-Cord Protection – Power-supply cords should be routed so that
they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or
against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the product.
■
Lightning – For added protection for this product during a lightning
storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and
power-line surges.
■
Overloading – Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral
convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric
shock.
■
A product and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the product and
cart combination to overturn.
■
Object and Liquid Entry – Never push objects of any kind into this
product through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points
or short-out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill
liquid of any kind on the product.
■
Servicing – Do not attempt to service this product yourself as opening or
removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards.
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
■
Damage Requiring Service – Unplug this product from the wall outlet
and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
■
When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged.
■
If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the product.
■
If the product has been exposed to rain or water.
■
If the product does not operate normally by following the operating
instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating
instructions as an improper adjustment of other controls may result in
damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the product to its normal operation.
■
If the product has been dropped or damaged in any way.
■
When the product exhibits a distinct change in performance—this
indicates a need for service.
■
Replacement Parts – When replacement parts are required, be sure the
service technician has used replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer or have the same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other
hazards.

■
Certain types of fluorescent lighting are used.
■
A strong light source shines into the IR receiver.
■
Other equipment that emits infrared energy, such as a radiant room
heater, is in the room.
These conditions commonly cause problems for most infrared-controlled
equipment. Try the following:
■
The remote control batteries may be low on power; replace them.
■
Dim the ambient lighting and/or turn off any fluorescent lights.
■
Close any window coverings and/or move the document camera out of

Warranty
Epson America, Inc. Limited Warranty
What is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (“Epson”) warrants to the first end user
customer of the EPSON product enclosed with this limited warranty
statement that the product, if purchased and used in the United States or
Canada, conforms to the manufacturer's specifications and will be free from
defects in workmanship and materials for a period of one (1) year from the
date of original purchase (except that the warranty period is 90 days for
lamps). For warranty service, you must provide proof of the date of original
purchase.
What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: Should your EPSON product
prove defective during the warranty period, please bring the product securely
packaged in its original container or an equivalent, along with proof of the
date of original purchase, to your EPSON Dealer or EPSON Customer Care
Center. Epson will, at its option, repair or replace on an exchange basis the
defective unit, without charge for parts or labor. When warranty service
involves the exchange of the product or of a part, the item replaced becomes
EPSON property. The exchanged product or part may be new or previously
repaired to the EPSON standard of quality. Exchange or replacement
products or parts assume the remaining warranty period of the product
covered by this limited warranty. However, each replacement lamp carries
the limited 90-day warranty stated above.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal use in
the United States and Canada. For lamps, 24-hour-per-day use causes
unusual strain and is not considered normal use. This warranty is not
transferable and will not apply to products purchased from an end user. This
warranty does not cover consumables (e.g., fuses), other than lamps. EPSON
is not responsible for warranty service should the EPSON label or logo or the
rating label or serial number be removed or should the product fail to be
properly maintained or fail to function properly as a result of misuse, abuse,
improper installation, neglect, improper shipping, damage caused by disasters
such as fire, flood, and lightning, improper electrical current, software
problems, interaction with non-EPSON products, or service other than by an
EPSON Authorized Servicer. Postage, insurance, or shipping costs incurred
in presenting your EPSON product for carry-in warranty service are your
responsibility. If a claimed defect cannot be identified or reproduced in
service, you will be held responsible for costs incurred.
THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE
EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS

FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW
THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES. IF THESE LAWS
APPLY, THEN ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE
LIMITED TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD IDENTIFIED ABOVE.
UNLESS STATED HEREIN, ANY STATEMENTS OR
REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY ANY OTHER PERSON OR FIRM
ARE VOID. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WRITTEN
WARRANTY, NEITHER EPSON AMERICA, INC. NOR ITS
AFFILIATES SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS, INCONVENIENCE,
OR DAMAGE, INCLUDING DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM THE USE OR
INABILITY TO USE THE EPSON PRODUCT, WHETHER
RESULTING FROM BREACH OF WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER
LEGAL THEORY. IF THE REMEDY ABOVE FAILS, EPSON’S
ENTIRE LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO A REFUND OF THE
PRICE PAID FOR THE EPSON PRODUCT COVERED BY THIS
LIMITED WARRANTY.
In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty
lasts and some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of
incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions
may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other
rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
