Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the DLC-2000HD system! This system was designed to
be a fully integrated system, which includes the DLC-2000HD Projector and the unique PFP™
Controller. This system is extremely easy to use, as all of the controls for the Projector have
been integrated into the PFP Controller for ease of operation and control. Not only does the
Controller control all aspects of the Projector, but it also performs all of the NTSC or PAL video
scaling for the Projector not to mention aspect ratio control.
The Projector itself is a bright, reliable LCD Projector with 2000 ANSI lumens of light output and
a native resolution of 1366 x 768.
Please be sure to read this manual before operating this system. While it is quite easy to operate and understand, it is unique in the way it is designed, since all of the video Controller and
Projector functions are now in the PFP Controller itself. You'll find that there is no 'Projector
remote', just one simple remote to operate all aspects of the system.
