The DigiOptic™ Image Processor, which should be ideally located close to the signal sources, supports and processes a wide range of video signals, transmitting them to the Projector by means of a ﬁbre optic link cable. The large number of inputs available (2 Composite Video inputs, 2 S-Video inputs, up to 4 Component or RGB inputs, 2 graphic RGB inputs, 1 DVI-D input, 1 HDMI™ Input) ensures the system supports a wide variety of analogue and digital sources: DVD players, VCRs, satellite and terrestrial receivers, computers, game consoles, video cameras, etc. The signal processing capabilities of the Image Processor ensure optimum reproduction of a broad range of input signals, from interlaced video to high deﬁnition and graphics. Conversion of interlaced video signals to progressive signals by means of prestigious DCDi™ technology produces ﬂuid, natural, images free of ﬂicker and stairstepping artefacts. Faithful reproduction of signals at higher resolutions (such as high deﬁnition video and graphics) occurs without loss of information or reduction of image sharpness thanks to the processor’s high pixel rate signal acquisition capabilities. Adaptation of the input signal resolution to the Projector resolution occurs without alterations of image quality, in accordance with an ample choice of aspect ratios, including several deﬁnable by the user. All image adjustments can be performed with the remote control with the aid of the On Screen Display; alternatively, the unit can be controlled by from a home automation system through the serial port. Thanks to the new optical system based on three chip DMD™, the HT 500 LINK allows to take advantage from DLP™ technology, the Texas Instruments technology. Each of the three DMD™ chip is dedicated to the modulation of one of the primary colors coming from the optical prism, the reﬂ ected light, after combination by a second prism, is projected outside using an appropriate lens system. The technology of the HT 500 LINK allows to obtain images without rainbow effect or any other type of artefact, in order to enjoy an even more realistic images The two units are connected via a three-core ﬁbre optic cable for transmission of the digital signal from the DigiOptic™ Image Processor to the Projector and control signals in both directions. Transmission occurs without interference or attenuation over distances of up to 500 m. Moreover, the ﬂexibility and small size of the cable allow the maximum freedom when installing the system in your home. SIM2 carries out comprehensive functional testing in order to guarantee the maximum product quality. For this reason, when you start using the product lamp operating hours may already be at between 30 and 60. In addition to the regular tests, the Quality Control department performs additional statistical tests at the time of shipment. In this case the packing may show signs of having been opened, and the accumulated lamp operating hours may be slightly higher than the hours associated with the standard tests.

POSITIONING DIGIOPTIC™ IMAGE PROCESSOR POSITIONING PROJECTOR The ideal location for the DigiOptic™ Image Processor is on a cabinet shelf or on a rack (dimensions compatible with a standard 19" rack). Make sure that the support surface is stable and that the unit has sufﬁcient space around it for ventilation purposes (at least 3 cm). The unit is connected to the mains via an external power supply unit with an output of +7 Vdc; the unit’s main power switch is on the power supply unit.Connect the power supply unit output cable to the POWER socket located on the rear panel (Fig. 2). Use exclusively the power supply unit provided with the system or an alternative power supply unit expressly approved by SIM2. Position the projector on a stable, suitable platform or utilise the optional bracket for a ﬁxed ceiling installation. To mount the DigiOptic™ Image Processor on an equipment rack use the screws and RH / LH supports supplied with the appliance. Unscrew the screws that secure the cover to the DigiOptic™ unit base, position the RH and LH supports and ﬁx into place with the supplied screws. To secure the unit to the rack use the supplied screws (Fig.6). DIGI OP TIC ™ IM AG CAUTION: In the case of ceiling mounting using a suspension bracket, follow the instructions carefully and comply with the safety standards you will ﬁnd in the box together with the bracket. If you use a bracket different to the one supplied by SIM2 Multimedia, you must make sure that the projector is at least 65 mm (2-9/16 inch) from the ceiling and that the bracket is not obstructing the air vents of the projector. Position the projector the desired distance from the screen: the size of the projected image is determined by the distance from the lens of the projector to the screen and the zoom setting. See ADDITIONAL INFORMATION for more information. E PR OC ESSO R ON OFF Fig.6 9 The connection between the two units is made with a single cable containing three ﬁbre optic cables each terminating in an LC connector. The standard cable length of 20m will be sufﬁcient for most installation requirements. During installation of the ﬁbre optic cable: • The individual optical cables are delicate: always handle the main cable without touching the individual optical cables (Fig. 7). Never pull the individual optical cables or connectors; if necessary, you may pull the main three-core cable. • • Check that the connectors are correctly inserted. Make sure that the cable does not constitute an obstacle for persons moving around the room. Take care not to create knots in the cable; the minimum radius of bends in the cable is 2 cm. Prevent the cable from pulling and mechanical stress: this could cause the connectors to be pulled out and damaged. 12 CO NT 1 Protective cap OP TIC R (R OL 2 FIB AL 3 S2 2) - 3 ER LIN K 3 The system can be fully controlled using the supplied IR (infrared) remote control handset. There is a single remote control for both the DigiOptic™ Image Processor and the Projector; the remote control can be directed towards either unit since they are both equipped with an IR sensor. • • 3 CONNECTING THE TWO UNITS Protective cap Ferrule Fig.8 Separation point Connector Protective cap Fibre Cable • • • 10 Fig.7 Only remove the cap protecting the connector ferrule immediately before inserting the connector; if the ferrule is allowed to come into contact with foreign material it may be damaged, making the connector unusable. Take particular care when inserting ﬁbre optic connectors in their respective sockets on the rear panel of the DigiOptic™ Image Processor and the rear panel of the Projector. Make sure that the single optical cables are not switched: the numbers on the cables must match the numbers on the connectors (Fig.8-9). Fig.9 To activate an electric motorised screen a 12 Volt output is provided at the rear of the DigiOptic™ Image Processor. This can be connected to a screen interface unit, which can be supplied by screen manufacturers (Fig.10). with black, non-reﬂecting borders, which will perfectly frame the projected image. Avoid light shining directly on the screen during projection as this will reduce contrast and black level detail on the projected image. For the true cinema experience best results are achieved with little or no ambient light. Furniture and other objects with reﬂecting surfaces, as well as light coloured walls should be avoided, as they are likely to interfere with the screen’s characteristics. CONNECTING THE VIDEO SOURCES Connect the cables from the video sources, the serial cable from the external control unit and the optical ﬁbre cables for connection to the Projector, to the rear panel of the DigiOptic™ Image Processor. Fig.10 The output is activated (Voltage: 12 Vdc) when the Projector is switched on and is de-activated (no Voltage output) when the projector is in stand-by mode. Some manufacturers offer screen-masking systems to help frame the projected image and improve picture contrast. These systems can be connected to output, at the rear of the DigiOptic™ Image Processor (Fig.11). Fig.11 To obtain the best performance from the HT500 LINK system, connect the various signal sources using good quality cables designed for video applications (rated impedance 75 ). Ensure that: • the cables are routed in such a way that they do not present an obstruction to people moving around the room; • the connectors are inserted carefully to avoid damaging the pins; • the cables are not twisted or crushed; • when disconnecting the cables the connectors are not violently pulled out of the sockets on the various units. Video sources (television receivers, VCRs, DVD players, etc.) often feature several outputs. To obtain the best performance from your system, carefully choose which output to use. Generally, the type of signal offering the best picture quality is DVI-D, followed by RGB, Components, S-Video and Composite Video, in that order. However, the HT500 LINK system is equipped with an excellent Video Decoder and Deinterlacer and therefore even inferior quality signals will produce high quality results. Table 1 shows the types of signals usually available for the most common types of video sources and the corresponding input connectors to use on the DigiOptic™ Image Processor). For rear projection the screen must be translucent. For front projection, we recommend the use of screens with low gain speciﬁcations (i.e. 1.3 to 2). The use of high gain screens should be avoided due to their limited viewing angle, which is undesirable for a large audience. Preferably, use a screen 11 Table 1 These inputs should be connected to an S-Video signal by means of a cable with a 4-pin mini-DIN type connector. The corresponding output on the source can be identiﬁed by the wording S-VIDEO or Y/C. Almost as widespread as Composite Video, S-VIDEO is preferable because it offers a clearer and sharper picture. R is red, G is green, B is blue, H/HV is white and V is black. By using a suitable SCART to RCA (or BNC) connector adapter cable, an RGB video signal from a source equipped with an SCART connector can be connected to this input. Component signals are connected to inputs Y, Cr and Cb, taking care to observe the correspondence with the outputs on the source. Since the latter can be labelled in various ways, refer to Table 1 to establish the correspondence between the various signals. The connector colours can also be of help, as shown in the table. Input 5 is dedicated for RGB and YCrCb signals up to 32 KHz only. In fact, in order to guarantee a high image quality, even with not so accurate sources, the input signal is elaborated by speciﬁc circuit boards in the DigiOptic™ Image Processor.The video signal suitable for inputs 6-7-8 can have a scan frequency of 15KHz (standard video resolution) or 32KHz or more (progressive scan video, high deﬁnition video). Some sources provide the facility to choose between a progressive signal or an interlaced signal. Although in general a progressive signal is higher quality than an interlaced signal, it is often preferable to perform the deinterlacing operation on the HT500LINK system rather than on the source because the HT500LINK system is equipped with Faroudja’s sophisticated directional correlation deinterlacing technology (DCDi™). Progressive signals usually provide better quality than interlaced signals, but if the source features both progressive and deinterlaced signal outputs it is good practice to compare the quality of the pictures reproduced by the HT500LINK system in the two cases: deinterlacing performed by the HT500 LINK system (thanks to Faroudja DCDi™ technology) is often more effective than that performed at the source (typically a DVD player) COMPONENT / RGBS 5 6 7 8 GRAPHICS RGB 9 10 These inputs are composed of three sets of 5 RCA connectors (5,6,7) and a set of 5 BNC connectors (8). Each set of connectors is suitable for RGB and Component signals. RGB signals can have the following synchronisations: composite sync on the green signal (RGsB), H+V Composite Sync, or separate H/V Sync. Connect the R, G, B outputs of the source to the respective R, G, B inputs of the DigiOptic™ Image Processor (paying attention not to invert the positions) and any synchronisation signals to the HV input or the H and V inputs. When connecting the three sets of RCA connectors use the colours as a guide: connector This input should be connected to an RGB-type video or graphic signal using a cable with a DB15HD type connector. The signal source device (typically a personal computer or game console) must be able to provide separate H/V synchronisation or composite H+V. The video or graphic signals that can be connected to this input can have horizontal scan frequencies (H-sync) of between 32 and 80 kHz and a vertical frequency (V-sync) of between 48 and 100 Hz. Image resolution can vary between 640x480 and 1600x1200 pixels (VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA, UXGA). DigiOptic ™ Imag e Processor Connector V ideo signa l so urce connector Y (green) Y Y Y C r (re d) PR R -Y V C b ( blue) PB B -Y U VIDEO 1 2 These inputs should be connected to a Composite Video signal (CVBS) by means of a cable with an RCA connector. The connector on the source is usually yellow and is frequently labelled VIDEO. Although other types of signals are preferable (since they allow better picture quality), this is still the most common type of output, and nearly all television receivers, video-recorders, DVD players, video cameras, etc., are equipped with CVBS outputs. S-VIDEO 3 4 12 DVI-D 11 This input allows you to advantage from the quality of the digital images . If your source is equipped with a DVI-D output, YCrCb or RGB connect it to this input to exploit the quality of the HT500LINK system. HDMI 12 With this input it is possible to integrate the optimal quality of a digital image with a multichannel audio signal. The HDMI™ (High Deﬁnition Multimedia Interface) in fact integrates a multichannel audio signal with the uncompressed high deﬁnition video signal. The interface also allows the exchange between the video source and the HT500 LINK system of control data to optimise the quality of the projected image. The HDMI™ input allows connection to video sources that use the HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) protocol to protect their contents. This protocol is in fact incorporated in the deﬁnition of the HDMI™ technology. Once the video source has been connected to the HDMI™ input, internal processing by the DigiOptic™ Image Processor separates the video information from the audio information. This information is then made available via an optical digital output with a female TOSLINK connector in accordance with the S/PDIF standard. CONTROL (RS232) The system can be controlled via a personal computer or home automation systems by means of the serial port: simply connect this input via a serial cable from an RS232 serial port. On request, SIM2 will send you a document containing the serial port settings and the list of main commands. 13 14 5 SWITCHING ON AND OFF The HT500LINK system consists of the Projector and the DigiOptic™ Image Processor (which is also the system control centre). The DigiOptic™ Image Processor sends commands to the Projector and receives operating status information from the Projector and function commands from the user. The system can be controlled from either the remote control (via the infrared sensors on the DigiOptic™ Image Processor and on the Projector) or the keypad located on the rear of the Projector. The two units have separate power supplies however: after connecting the unit to the electrical mains supply: 1) Set the two power switches to “I”; the DigiOptic™ Image Processor power switch is located on the external power supply unit (Fig. 13c), while the Projector switch is on the rear panel (Fig. 13a). 2) Turn on the DigiOptic™ Image Processor by pressing the button on the front panel (Fig. 13b). Signiﬁcant status signals are given in Table 3.

Pressing a key from 1-9 on the remote control selects the corresponding input; pressing 0 selects the input active at the time the system was last switched off. If the system is switched on very soon after it was last switched off, the lamp may fail to come on because it is too hot. In this case just wait a few minutes to allow the lamp to cool. Switching the system off (Fig.15): • from the remote control ( key) • from the Projector keypad ( key). If you wish to power off the system completely, wait at least one minute in stand-by before setting the mains power switches on the units to the “O” position or disconnecting the power supply cables. This is to allow the fans in the Projector unit sufﬁcient time to cool the lamp. 50 0 L IN R 2 IG I L C H 5 T 00 1 2 3 - CLA S S 1L AS ER PRO DU CT Fig.15 16 K In case the Projector unit is shut down (for example due to a shut down of the projector unit by putting the switch in the “O” position or by accidentally unplugging the power cord cable) to re-boost the HT500LINK system it is necessary to shut down the DigiOptic™ Image Processor and repeat the power-on procedure described in point 1 and 2. In case the connection with the ﬁber optics between the two unit is interrupted (for example by unplagging one or more cable), to restore the system, it is necessary to turn off the two units through the main switches and once the connecectin is restored, repeat steps 1 and 2 of the power-on procedure. 6 KEYBOARD PAD Eight push buttons, at the rear of the projector, will allow complete operation without the use of the remote control.

There are three infrared sensors, one at the front of the Projector, one at the rear of the Projector and one on the front panel of the DigiOptic™ Image Processor. It is possible to control the projector by pointing the remote control at the screen; the sensor at the front of the projector will pick up the reﬂected infrared commands. (Fig. 16). Avoid placing obstructions between the remote control and the infrared sensor at the front of the projector; this will impair the remote control performance. 500 L IN Insert the batteries, taking care to match the polarity, as indicated in the battery recess of the remote (Fig. 17). Change the batteries in the remote control if experiencing difﬁculty in sending commands to the projector. If the remote control is not to be used for a long period of time remove the batteries. Replace all batteries at the same time; do not replace one new battery with a used battery. If the batteries have leaked, carefully wipe the case clean and replace with new batteries. - + + - + + - Four 1.5V� AAA type� batteries K 1 2 3 - CLASS 1 LASER PRODUCT 1 2 Fig. 16 Fig. 17 17 8 ON SCREEN MENU All system functions can be activated from the keypad or remote control with the aid of a practical and comprehensive system of on screen menus. INPUTS The input selection menu (Inputs) is called by pressing 0 on the remote control and, when no other menu is displayed, using the · and ‚ keys on the keypad. To select an input, scroll the list with the · and ‚ keys until the desired input is highlighted, then press ‡.

Input 11 is capable of receiving YCrCb or RGB signals coming from DVI-D sources. The selection should be made from the drop menu following the indications described above. After selecting the source signal (by means of the · and ‚ keys), press MENU+/MENU- to conﬁrm and close the pull-down menu; the value you have just set will be displayed on the right of the < symbol. As with the other inputs, you can now select the input just set by pressing the ‡ key. During the short time it takes to ﬁnd the signal, a box appears showing the signal requested. As soon as the signal is shown in the box additional information is displayed concerning the video standard (for video signals) or resolution (for graphic signals), and format. Fom the SETUP menu it is possible to choose to visualize or not this information, for more details check the SOURCE INFORMATION in MENU section. MAIN MENU Image To access the main menu of the On Screen Display press the MENU key on the keypad or the MENU+ or MENU- key on the remote control. The main menu is divided into four windows, PICTURE, IMAGE, SETUP and MENU, in which the various adjustments are grouped according to the frequency of use. Use · and ‚ to select the line corresponding to the adjustment you wish to make (Fig. 19).

PICTURE VC R 2 Fig. 19 The various menus only offer the relevant adjustments in accordance with the type of input signal displayed (e.g. certain typical adjustments for video signals, not necessary for graphic signals, do not appear on the menus, and vice versa). Some adjustments (e.g. BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST) are associated with a numerical value that can be varied within the set limits using the keys ﬂ / ‡. For others (e.g. VIDEO TYPE) you can choose among three options presented on the same ﬂ / ‡). Other adjustments (marked by the < symbol) provide submenus, which appear as a superimposed window in which the selection is made with the · and ‚ keys (Fig. 20).

Adjustments that are not available for a given input do not appear on the menu. Table 4 summarises the adjustments available for each input. For a complete overview of the on-screen menus, consult the ON SCREEN MENU LAYOUT in the ADDITIONAL INFORMATION section. BRIGHTNESS Use this control to adjust the image’s black level without affecting white areas. Increasing the value will give more detail in darker parts of the picture. For correct adjustment it may prove useful to display the signal relative to the grey scale within which the black level and the level immediately above it must be separately identiﬁable. Alternatively use a scene composed of black objects alongside other dark coloured objects. CONTRAST Use this control to adjust the image’s black level without affecting white areas. To ensure correct adjustment, it may prove useful to display the signal relative to the grey scale, within which the white level and the level immediately below it must be separately identiﬁable. Alternatively use a scene composed of well-lit white objects surrounded by light coloured objects with lower level lighting. COLOR This control (also called Saturation) increases or decreases 19 Table 4 Inputs RG B G rafico DVI-D HDMI™ Co lour - - - Tint - - - Adjustments FILTER This allows you to select the mode in which the input signal is processed. Selecting the most appropriate value for a given input signal ensures the best horizontal and vertical deﬁnition and makes the picture sharper. Brightness CINEMA MODE In AUTO the deinterlacer recognises if the video signal source is a movie ﬁlm (obtained from a Telecine device with 3:2 or 2:2 pull-down) and applies a deinterlace algorithm optimised for this type of signal. If the video signal source is not identiﬁed as a ﬁlm, or if you select NO the deinterlacer applies a Motion compensated algorithm optimised for video camera signals. S harpness Mode VIDEO TYPE Activates a ﬁlter to improve stability of pictures from video recorders or DVD players. To toggle between NORMAL, VCR1 mode and VCR2 mode press on the remote control. 20 Y C rC b SHARPNESS MODE This allows you to select the type of processing associated with sharpness adjustment. In the case of a progressive or interlaced video signal VIDEO mode is advisable; with PC graphic signals use GRAPHIC MODE. RG B S SHARPNESS Use this adjustment to increase and decrease the level of picture detail. When the sharpness value is reduced the image details appear less pronounced, while increasing the value raises image deﬁnition, making the outline of objects sharper. Note that an excessively high value may result in a ‘noisy’ picture and the edges of objects may be unnaturally deﬁned. RG B S 15kHz Y C rC b 15kHz TINT Controls the purity of the colours. Basically determines the red-green ratio of the picture. Reducing the value will boost the red contents of the picture, increasing the value will boost the green tones. For this adjustment use skin tones or a test pattern image with colour bars as a reference. NOISE REDUCTION This adjustments allows to choose the ﬁlter value for noise reduction purposes. As soon as this option is selected on the menu, the image is divided in two parts. In the left side the image is not altered by the ﬁlter, in the right part the ﬁlter is activated. This allows you to compare the effect of the ﬁlter. It is possible to deactivated the ﬁlter (NOT ACTIVE), to use the automatic adjustments (AUTO) or to manually select (MANUAL) the value suitable for the image with the VALUE adjustment. In case of using the VALUE adjustement, it is enoght to select to cursor below and set the value with the ﬂ / ‡ keys of the remote control. Associated to the NOISE REDUCTION there is the possibility to use the speciﬁc function (FLESH TONE CORRECTION) to make skin tone more natural. Often the use of noise reduction ﬁlter slightly degrades the image in those areas where skin tones are visible. With the use of this function it is possible to maintain an excellent image quality throughout the entire projected image. Video S- Video the picture colour intensity. When set to zero, colour images will be shown in black and white. Increasing the value, try to ﬁnd the point at which the colours look natural: suitable references include skin tones and grass in landscape shots.

There are ﬁve preset aspects available and three personalised aspects (with user-settable parameters). You can select a different aspect for each source: the selected aspect ratio will be automatically called the next time the relative source is called. You can also select the required aspect ratio by repeatedly pressing the key, or by pressing and a numerical key (1...8). The following aspects are available. NORMAL: projects the image occupying the full height of the screen while maintaining the aspect ratio of the input signal. When the input signal aspect ratio is 4:3 black vertical bands are displayed on the right and left of the picture. ANAMORPHIC: allows a 16:9 picture to be displayed correctly. LETTERBOX: serves to display 4:3 letterbox image (with source signal having black bands above and below the picture) so that it ﬁlls the 16:9 screen and maintains the correct aspect ratio. PANORAMIC: this aspect stretches the 4:3 image, slightly cropping the upper and lower parts. Panoramic is ideal for displaying a 4:3 image on the 16:9 screen of the Display. PIXEL TO PIXEL: this aspect displays the image as it is input without adapting it to the screen. The image is projected in the centre of the screen and if its horizontal and/or vertical dimensions are smaller than the display, it is bounded by vertical and/or horizontal black bands. USER 1, 2, 3: When none of the preset formulas are suitable, the User formulas are available, with the facility for continuous horizontal and vertical adjustment of picture size. SCREEN CONTROL If an appropriate screen-masking interface is connected to the 12V output socket it is possible, for each aspect chosen, to re- frame the screen to a variety of aspect ratios and screen sizes (please refer to the screen manufacturer’s manual). COLOR TEMPERATURE Changes the colour balance of the image. Colours can be adjusted towards the red end of the spectrum (low colour temperature values - expressed in degrees Kelvin) or the blue end (high values). Colour temperature can be selected with three preset values: HIGH (corresponding to approx. 9000 degrees Kelvin), MEDIUM (approx. 8000 degrees Kelvin), LOW (approx. 6500 degrees Kelvin) and one PERSONAL setting controlled by the user with separate adjustments for RED, GREEN and BLUE. In the personale color adjustment for all three colors it is possible to set an Offset value and Gain. The Offset adjustments have an impact of the low IRE values, while the Gain adjustments impact of the higher IRE values. Generally, the HIGH value is more suitable for displaying graphic images, MEDIUM and LOW for video images. These adjustments are reserved for expert users since there is a risk of obtaining results that impair projected image quality. GAMMA CORRECTION Determines the system’s response to the grey scale, emphasising or attenuating the different grades of brightness (blacks, dark, medium, light grey, whites) in the projected image. There are 6 types of gamma curves FILM,FILM1,VIDEO, VIDEO1, GRAPHIC and USER. Whit USER curve the the user may select the exponent (gamma value) used for gamma compensation. Values between 1.5 to 2.2 enhance the details in the dark image content, resulting in a lower contrast perception. Values higher than 2.2 , occurs a fade away of details in the dark image content, resulting in a higher contrast perception. With the value equal to 2.2 (the standard value) , the image’s colours displayed are the most natural colours available with the common video sources. OVERSCAN Remove noise around image. Some sources can produce a picture with noise along edges, thanks to the overscan function it is possible to drop such imperfections outside the projected area. The overscan value can be included between 0 (no overscan) and 32 (maximum value). The image maintains in any case the aspect. 21 FREQUENCY/PHASE These adjustments, available for progressive signals and for signals from PC, ensure correspondence between the number of pixels making up the signal and the number of pixels making up the projected image. These parameters do not normally require adjustment because the system checks the input signal and automatically sets the most suitable values. However, if the image appears disturbed (loss of position within the equidistant vertical bands or instability and lack of sharpness on the narrow vertical lines) it may help to prompt the system to repeat the input signal analysis and determination of the best parameters by calling the automatic adjustment procedure with the AUTO key on the remote control or on the keypad. If the automatic procedure fails to have the required effect, enter the frequency and phase values manually and approach the screen sufﬁciently to observe the effects of the adjustments. Table 5 Position DVI-D HDMI™ RGB G rafico YCrCb RGB S Adjustments RGB S 15kHz YCrCb 15kHz Inputs Video S- Video POSITION Use this adjustment to position the image vertically and horizontally. Determines the aspect ratio of the projected image. These parameters do not normally require adjustment because the system checks the input signal and automatically sets the most suitable values. However, if the image is not perfectly centralised it may prove useful to request the system to repeat the input signal analysis and image positioning, calling the automatic control procedure from the AUTO button on the remote control or keypad. When this procedure is called it is helpful to have a white or light coloured background on the screen in the current picture. - Aspect F requency - - - P hase - - - C olour Temperature G amma C orrection Overscan - Y /C Delay - - - SETUP The setup menu contains less frequently used adjustments that may be required during installation (e.g. On Screen Display language selection or the display of Test Patterns). ORIENTATION Select the option that best describes the installation i.e. desktop front, ceiling front, desktop rear and ceiling rear. Y / C DELAY In the case of Video and S-Video signals, it may be necessary to correct horizontal colour misalignment within the projected image. For a given video standard (e.g. PAL or NTSC) the stored value does not normally require further ﬁne-tuning, unless the source or connection cable has changed. 50 0 L IN K 1 2 3 - CLASS 1 LASER PRODU CT Fig. 21 22 HORIZONTAL/VERTICAL KEYSTONE To obtain maximum quality of the projected image, we recommend the installation of the projector on a level platform parallel and central to the screen.

The FOCUS adjustment impacts on the motorized lens focus, allowing to obtain the highest deﬁnition on the projected image, an accurate focus setting should allow the viewer to distinguish each pixel that create the image one from another. If the video signal used is not suitable for this purpose, the HT 500 LINK system provide two test pattern , each available with the ajustment mentioned above, in order to select the appropriate value for ZOOM and FOCUS. This test pattern is displayed by pressing the • key, once the right adjustments are reached using the ﬂ and ‡ keys, the test image can be easly removed pressing again the • key of the remote control. The LENS SHIFT adjustment allows to move horizontally (keys ﬂ and ‡) and vertically (keys · and ‚) the lens, in order to center the image. O ZO ZOOM FOCUS M If the projected images needs to be centred, the LENS SHIFT (see next paragraph) adjustment allows the projected image to be moved vertically and horizontally, in relation to the centre of the screen (Fig. 23).

SOURCE LIST In order for the HT500LINK system to be more ﬂexible, the following described functions allow to modify the input selection menu making it more user friendly. The main window shows all the inputs available on the DigiOptic™ Image Processor. If one or more inputs are not utilized, it is often helpful to blank them from the input list (accessed with the 0 key). Once the input has been chosen, in the drop menu that appears by pressing the ﬂ key, it is possible to activate the source (Fig. 25). The exclusion or activation of the source will automatically renumber the remaining active inputs. 24 Source list/Edit sou 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 rce name VIDEO 1 VIDEO 2 S- VIDEO 3 S- VIDEO 4 C OMP ONE NT / RGB C OMP ONE NT / RGB C OMP ONE NT / RGB C OMP ONE NT / RGB GRAPH IC S RGB 9 GRAPH IC S RGB 10 DVI -D 11 HDMI 12 S S S S 5 6 7 8 VIDEO 1 VIDEO 2 VIDEO 3 Yes AC ST IVE S- VIDEO 4 NAME C OMP RGB 5 C OMP RGB 6 C OMP RGB 7 C OMP RGB 8 GRAPH RGB 9 GRAPH RGB 10 DVI -D 11 HDMI 12 No The inputs with an active video signal (visible in the input selection menu) are marked with a check symbol. It can be also helpful to identify the input with a name chosen by the user (for example with the name of the connected source) rather than with the signal type. Once chosen to have the input visible, in the drop menu, by selecting the Name option it is possible to rename the source in use. This will make it easier to remember the source connected to a speciﬁc input. You can use up to 12 alphanumeric letters to name the source (for more details check the “Insert text” section) Insert text You will be able to insert text easily and rapidly by accessing the text insertion menu (ﬁg. 26) Ed it s ource na me __________ _ Cancel - C onfirm + ()?@ 1 AB C 2 DE F 3 GHI 4 JKL 5 MNO 6 PQRS 7 TUV 8 WXYZ 9 0 Fig.26 The text insertion mode remains the same if text is being inserted for the ﬁrst time or if a previously inserted name is being edited.

This function is displayed on pressing on the remote control (or, in the absence of the On Screen Display, the � key on the remote control). QUICK MENUS The quick menus provide access to the main adjustments that affect image quality, without calling the main On Screen menus. BRIGHTNESS, CONTRAST, COLOUR, TINT, SHARPNESS and FILTER adjustments appear at the bottom of the screen one after the other when the · and keys are pressed ‚. MESSAGES The following messages may appear during operation of the system: No signal The system does not recognise any signal applied to the selected input. In this case: • Make sure the selected input is connected to a video or graphic signal and that that source is functioning correctly. • Check the condition of the cables used to connect the system to the various sources. • Make sure the video or graphic signals supplied by the source are compatible with the system’s technical speciﬁcations and, in particular, with those of the selected input. Out of Range This message appears when either the resolution or the vertical/ horizontal frequency of the input signal exceeds system speciﬁcations (e.g. a QXGA graphic signal) or when an input is supplied with an incompatible signal (after setting the components input to YCrCb 15kHz a progressive signal is connected). Substitution lamp If the lamp hours exceed the 90% of the life lamp, at every switching on , a brief message appears on the screen to remember the need of replacing it in a short time. If the lamp life is greater than 100% the message above persists until the ESC key is pressed. 27 9 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE The Projector and DigiOptic™ Image Processor do not require internal cleaning. There are no user serviceable parts inside the projector. Please refer all service requirements to qualiﬁed personnel. Cleaning the projector’s cover: Use a soft slightly damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners, solvents or other harsh chemicals, as this will damage the ﬁnish of the cover. Avoid direct cleaning of the rear panel’s screen-printing. Cleaning the lens: The lens may be cleaned with a very soft, non-abrasive small brush, in order to remove dust particles. Alternatively, use a soft dry cleaning cloth (of the type used for camera lens cleaning) to remove ﬁngerprints and grease marks. 10 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE No power (Green and red LED are OFF) • Check the power switch at the rear: it must be in position I. • Check if the power cable has been connected correctly to a working socket. • Check the power socket fuse, at the rear of the projector. • Replace the fuse on the mains socket with an identical type (T 5A H) (Fig. 2). • Should the problem persist, seek authorised technical assistance. The lamp is not coming on • Allow a few minutes pause between switching off and turning on again (from stand-by). This will allow the lamp to cool down sufﬁciently. • If the lamp doesn’t come on – even though the projector has had sufﬁcient time to cool down – seek technical assistance from your nearest Dealer. No image • Check that the selected input is actually connected to a active video or graphic signal. • Check that the above source actually works. • Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with the technical speciﬁcations of the projector. 28 • Check the integrity of cables used to connect various sources. • Check the cooling air inlets or air outlets on the units are not obstructed and the room temperature is below 35°C (95°F). Image is disturbed, unstable or noisy • Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with the technical speciﬁcations of the projector. • Check the integrity of cables connecting projector to various sources. • If the signal source is a terrestrial broadcast (via a VCR) check that the receiving channel has been correctly tuned in and that the aerial system is in good working order. • Should the problem be present with a signal coming from a video-recorder, ensure that the videotape is an Original “ﬁrst generation” copy and in good condition. • Adjust the VCR’s tracking control for optimum picture performance. Ensure the VCR mode is active in the Picture menu. Incomplete image along borders (vertical and horizontal) • Compare compatibility of video/graphic signals and technical speciﬁcations of your projector. • Press A on your remote control or AUTO on keypad to execute automatic adjustments. • Adjust the horizontal and vertical position of projected image by selecting POSITION on the IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS menu. • Adjust the width and height of image, selecting ASPECT in the IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS menu. • Adjust the Overscan value in the IMAGE/OVERSCAN menu. Image too dark, too pale or unnaturally coloured • Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with technical speciﬁcations of your projector. • Go to PICTURE menu, select and regulate any of the following, accordingly: CONTRAST, BRIGHTNESS, COLOR, and TINT. • If necessary, reset the COLOR TEMPERATURE and GAMMA CORRECTION (found on the IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS / ADVANCED SETTINGS menu). Graphic image with poor quality vertical detail • Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with technical speciﬁcations of your projector. • Press A on your remote control or AUTO on keypad to execute automatic adjustments. • Adjust FREQUENCY and PHASE parameters, found in the IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS menu, to optimise vertical detail of the projected image. Video Image showing colour misalignment on vertical details • Verify compatibility of video/graphic signals with technical speciﬁcations of your projector. • Adjust Y/C DELAY settings in the IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS / ADVANCED SETTINGS to reduce colour misalignment. For best results use an external colour bar test pattern source. Remote control does not work • Check the batteries and for correct polarity. • Ensure that the area between the infrared sensor (front of projector) and the remote control is free of obstruction. • Ensure that infrared sensors (front and rear of projector) are not exposed to intense light levels. 11 OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES You can purchase the following optional accessories at your Dealer: - Ceiling Bracket Kit. - Type of lens Up to six types of lenses are available to accommodate different throw distances and your speciﬁc installations.
