1 INTRODUCTION
The C3X1080 projector represents the state of the art in image processing combined with the innovative DLP™ 3 chip 1080p sytsem
and outstanding optics.
Different input signal resolutions can be adapted to match the specified
screen resolution without loss of image quality, thanks to a generous
selection of preset aspect ratios, some of which are user definable.
Its range of inputs (1 Composite Video input, 1 S-Video input, 1 Components or RGB input, 1 graphic RGB input, 2 HDMI™ inputs) allow it to
be connected to a wide range of analogue and digital sources: DVD
players, video recorders, satellite and terrestrial receivers, computers,
video game consoles, camcorders, etc.
All picture adjustments can be made with the remote control interacting with a simple menu-activated On Screen Display; alternatively, the
projector can be controlled by a domestic automation system by its
serial port or by USB port.
Its image processing system allows optimum reproduction of a wide
range of input signals, from interlaced video to high definition and
digital graphics.
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.
The appliance has been subjected to exhaustive operating tests by
SIM2 to ensure maximum quality.
The projector bulb life should thus initially be around 30-60 hours.
Besides the usual checks, the Quality Control department also runs
additional statistical tests before despatch.
In this instance the packaging may show signs of having been
opened, and the hours operation of the lamp may be higher than
the value required under standard procedures.

Due to the compact nature, high brightness and contrast of the optical system within the C3X 1080 it is likely that a
small amount of light scatter may be seen outside the extremities of the screen area that will vary depending on the
type of lens used and the zoom and shift setting. This is a normal characteristic of the optical system. (and not considered to be a fault.) To reduce this effect SIM2 recommends that the surrounding area around the screen should be
as dark as possible.
The C3X1080 is a three chip DLP™ design using three high resolution DMD's ™ (Red, Green, Blue). These three DMD's are
carefully aligned into position through a high precision process at the factory, every effort is made in reducing alignment errors within the stated tolerances.
Maximum permissible limits for the misalignment are: Screen Centre - Up to 0.7 pixel between each color. Screen
Corners Up to 2 Pixel between each color. Please Note: 1 pixel is equivalent to 10 thousandths of a millimetre at the

Make certain cables are routed so that people will not be
impeded or tripped up.
Keep all cables away from children.
Install the unit as close to the wall socket as possible. Avoid
stepping on power cables, make certain they do not become tangled, and never jerk or tug them; do not expose
them to sources of heat, and make sure they do are not
knotted or crimped. If the power cables become damaged, stop using the system and request the assistance of
an authorised technician.
• Disconnect the unit from the mains power supply in the event
of electrical storms and when not in use.
To prevent damage from lightning strikes in the vicinity,
disconnect the unit during storms or when the sytsem is
going to be left unused for a long time.

The Orientation adjustment in the Set up menu allows you to
reverse the image vertically and horizontally (Fig. 9), to allow
the projector to be used for desktop front, ceiling front, desktop
rear and ceiling rear installations (Fig. 9). (More information at
page 20)
c3X 1080
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.
Fig. 9
To activate an electric motorised screen a 12 Volt output is
provided at the rear of the projector (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.
You can also use black motirised curtains to delimit the screen
when the projected image aspect ratio changes (Fig. 11a). This
option is controlled via the output at the rear of the projector.
Fig. 11a
The manual lens shift adjustment allows the projected image
to be moved vertically, to up direction, in relation to the centre
of the screen; the maximum adjustment being equal to half
the height of the image. (Fig. 11b).
Image shift range: + 1/2 image.
Fig. 10
For rear projection the screen must be translucent.
For front projection, we recommend the use of a screen with
black matt borders to contain the projected image.
Preferably use a unit gain screen; high gain screens are only
effective when used with a small group of viewers close to
the screen’s axis. Prevent ambient light shining directly on the
screen during projection as this will reduce the contrast of the
projected image.

COMPOSITE VIDEO 1
Fit an RCA connector with a Composite Video (CVBS) signal
to this input.
The output connector on the external appliance is normally
coloured yellow and will often be labelled VIDEO.
Other signal and socket formats may be preferable (because
they give better image quality), but this type of output socket is
still the most commonly used, and nearly all television receivers,
video recorders, DVD players and camcorders, etc. use it.
S-VIDEO
2
Fit a mini-DIN connector with an S-Video signal to this input.
The corresponding output at the external device is normally
identifiable by the labels S-VIDEO or Y/C.
This type is nearly as common as Composite Video, and is
preferable to the latter, since it gives higher image quality.
RGB/YPrPb 3
These inputs use a set of 4 RCA connectors.
RGB and Component signals can be applied to each set of
connectors.
RGB signals can have composite synchronisation on the green
signal (RGsB), or on the HV signal.
Connect the R, G, B outputs of the source to the respective R, G,
B inputs of the C3X1080 (taking care not to invert the positions)
and any synchronisation signals to the HV.
When hooking up, use the colours of the RCA connectors as
an aid as follows: the R connector is red, G is green, B is blue
and HV is white.
You can use a SCART to RCA adapter cable to connect the
RGB signal from a source equipped with a SCART output to
this input.
The Component signals connect to the Y, Pr and Pb inputs:
take care that the inputs correspond to the outputs on the
source device.
Since these can be labelled differently, refer to Table 1 to
establish the correspondence between the various signals. As
indicated in the table, the colours of the connectors can also
be of help.
Only horizontal scanning frequencies of 15 kHz (standard video
resolution) or 32 kHz (high definition video, with progressive
scanning) can be applied to this input.
Progressive signals usually provide better quality than interlaced
signals, but if the source features both progressive and deinterDownloaded From projector-manual.com Sim2 Manuals
laced signal outputs it is good practice to compare the quality
of the pictures reproduced by the C3X1080 in the two cases:
the deinterlacing performed by the C3X1080 is often more
effective than that performed by the source itself.
GRAPHICS RGB - YprPb 4
This input should be connected to an RGB / YPrPb 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 synchronisation.
HDMI™ 5 6
HDMI™ (High Definition Multimedia Interface) integrates an
uncompressed high definition video signal with a multichannel
audio signal and allows exchange of control data between the
video source and the C3X1080.
The HDMI input allows connection to video sources that use the
HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) protocol to
protect their contents.
Once the video source has been connected to the HDMI input, internal processing by the C3X1080 separates the video
information from the audio information. The audio information
is made available on a digital output with a female TOSLINK
connector in compliance with the S/PDIF standard.
You can use a DVI-D > HDMI adapter cable to connect the
DVI-D signal from a source equipped with a DVI-D output.

The projector is equipped with two outputs (Voltage: 12 Vdc)
for motorised projection screen and screen masking systems,
used for masking off the projection area to match the projected
image aspect ratio (Fig. 17).
The +12V output is activated when the projector is switched
on (blue LED on) and is de-activated when the projector is in
standby mode (red LED on). The output can be set with the
“Screen control” adjustment in the “Aspect” menu. This output

8 REMOTE CONTROL
The remote control requires four 1.5 V batteries, size AAA.
Insert the batteries, taking care to match the polarity, as indicated in the battery compartment in the handset (Fig. 23).
Change the batteries in the remote control if experiencing
difficulty in sending commands to the projector.
Remove batteries from the remote control if it is not to be used
for a long period of time. The batteries are prone to leak and
corrode the remote control’s circuits.
The remote control sends commands to the projector via
infrared signals.
The projector is equipped with an infrared sensor on its front
panel and can therefore be controlled by pointing the remote
control towards the projection screen; the IR beam reflects off
the screen towards the projector (Fig. 19).
There is another infrared sensor in the rear of projector.

Brightness
Use this control to adjust the darker areas of the picture (black
level), without significantly affecting bright areas. Increasing
the value will give more detail in darker parts of the picture. For
correct adjustment it may prove useful to display a grey scale
with at least twenty bands. Now try to reduce the brightness of
the black band as much as possible while ensuring that it can
still be distinguished from the adjacent band with brightness
slightly higher than black. Alternatively use a scene composed
of black objects alongside other dark coloured objects and try
to keep all the objects separately identifiable.
Contrast
Use this control to adjust the image’s white level without affecting
its dark areas.
For correct adjustment it may prove useful to display a grey
scale with at least twenty bands. Now try to increase the brightness of the white band as much as possible while ensuring
that it can still be distinguished from the adjacent band with
16
Downloaded From projector-manual.com Sim2 Manuals
brightness slightly less than white. Alternatively use a scene
composed of well-lit white objects surrounded by light objects
with lower level lighting, and try to ensure that all the objects
remain separately identifiable.
COLOUR
This control (also called Saturation) increases or decreases the
picture colour intensity. When set to zero, colour images will be
shown in black and white. Increase the value until the colours
appear natural: suitable references include skin tones and grass
in landscape shots.
Tint
Controls the purity of colours. Basically determines the red-green
ratio of the picture.
Decreasing the value increases the red content of the image,
increasing it increases the green. For this adjustment use skin
tones or a test card image with colour bars as a reference.
Sharpness
This adjustment serves to modulate the signal to increase or
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 appear unnaturally
clearly defined.
Sharpness Mode
This allows you to select the type of processing associated with
sharpness adjustment. For an interlaced or progressive video
signal, set to Video; for PC graphics signals, set to Graphics.
Sets the system to receive graphics signals rather than video
signals. If the VIDEO option is set, it applies Noise Reduction to
increase the clarity of the image. The GRAPHICS option deactivates noise reduction.
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.
Cinema Mode
Use this option if the video signal source is a movie film (obtained from a Teleciné device with 3:2 or 2:2 pull-down). In this
case a deinterlace algorithm optimized for this type of signal
is applied.
Selecting AUTO mode causes the de-interlacer to analyse si-
c3X 1080
gnal characteristics and apply the correct deinterlace mode
automatically.
Selecting the NO option causes the de-interlacer to apply a
Motion compensated algorithm optimized for video camera
signals.
NOISE REDUCTION
This adjustment serves to select the noise reduction filter value.
In this latter case, simply click on the slider and set the value
with the ◀ and ▶ keys on the remote control.

Aspect
This adjustment allows you to change the dimensions and
aspect ratio (relationship between width and height) of the
displayed image. 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 applied 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:
Downloaded From projector-manual.com Sim2 Manuals
Letterbox: serves to display a 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: widens the 4:3 image and cuts off a strip from the
top and bottom. Panoramic is ideal for displaying a 4:3 image
on the 16:9 screen of the Display.
SUBTITLES: raises the image, thus making space for subtitles.
Pixel to Pixel: runs a pixel to pixel mapping of any image, without
adapting 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: use this option if none of the others are satisfactory.
The User formulas give you the ability to continuously adjust the
picture size horizontally and vertically.
With progressive HDMI signals, for all resolutions, the "User"
adjustment can be used only in decreasing mode: the increment mode is intentionally set to value "0".
With progressive HDMI signals, at any level of resolution, you
can only adjust “personalised” settings downward: incremental adjustment has been intentionally inhibited.
COLOUR TEMPERATURE
Changes the colour balance of the image.
You can define the primary colour (red, green, blue) positioning
by using 5 default settings. These settings are:

If the default white balance settings are not sufficient, you can
adjust the white balance manually.
Colour temperature can be adjusted by positioning the white
point within the CIE chromaticity diagram. The system permits
you to place the white point inside a grid positioned in the neutral colour zone. Moving along the“horizontal”lines changes the
related colour temperature, with low temperatures on the right
(thus increasing the red content) and high temperatures on the
left of the graph (thus increasing the blue content). Points along
the yellow horizontal line represent the colours on the black
body curve. The colour temperature along the“vertical”lines is
constant but differs to a lesser or higher degree from the black
body curve. This means that by selecting the points on the higher part of the graph you will increase the blue component.
On the contrary, by selecting points in the lower part of the
graph, the purple component increases.
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.
The projector has a range of gamma functions which enable
you to display any image to the best effect for the type of
video source, the ambient lighting and your subjective preferences.
There are 4 sets of gamma curves: Standard (ST), Enhanced
SIM2 (EN) and Graphics (GR), User. The Standard curve has
been defined for general use, and is set for videocameras,
digital cameras, and for viewing films or photos on your PC.
The Enhanced set is suitable for watching movies. The Graphics set is suited to displaying synthetic graphics (PC, CAD, PC
presentations, etc.).
User enables you to define your own curve. You can thus select
the coefficient which determines the curve.
Values from 1.5 to 2.2 allow you to emphasise the detail of dark
images, but reduce overall contrast.

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 with button A on the remote control
or the AUTObutton on the keypad. When this procedure is called
it is helpful to have a while or light coloured background on the
screen in the current picture.
Frequency/phase
These adjustments, available for progressive signals and for signals from a PC, ensure correspondence between the number
of pixels making up the signal and the number of pixels that
make 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. If however the image is disturbed (loss of
resolution between equidistant vertical bands or instability and
lack of detail in thin vertical lines) it may help to ask the system
to rerun the input signal analysis and set the best parameters
by calling up the automatic adjustment function with A on the
remote control or AUTO 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.
OVERSCAN
Eliminates irregularities around the outer borders of the image.
Some less accurate sources may produce an image with uneven borders; thanks to the overscan function these imperfections can be moved to outside the displayed area. Il
parameter to 2.2, typically yields pleasant, contrasty images.
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.
Values higher than 2.2 increase overall contrast, but reduce the
detail of dark areas. For the most common video sources, the
overscanning value can be in the range (no overscanning) to 32
(maximum). The resulting image always maintains the selected
aspect irrespective of the selected overscan value.
Position
Use this adjustment to position the image vertically and horizontally. Determines the aspect ratio of the projected image.

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
Reverse the image vertically and horizontally to best fit the
installation: i.e. desktop front, ceiling front, desktop rear and
ceiling rear (Fig.25).
POWER ON
If selected (AUTO), this option allows the system when the projector is connected to the mains power supply.
In STANDBY mode the projector remain in STANDBY mode and
awaits the power-up command from the remote control or
keypad.
Variable Iris
The C3X1080 features a variable iris which allows the User to
choose between High Contrast or Optimum Picture modes.
The Iris control is accessed via the OSD. Press Menu +/- on the
remote cotrol repeatedly, until the 'Setup' page is displayed.
Open: Use this setting to achieve the optimum performance
from the projector. This will give the ideal balance between
Contrast, Brightness & Color performance. SIM2 recommend
this setting for Home Theatre applications.
Closed: Use this setting to achieve a higher contrast. By closing
the Iris, Brightness & Colour performance will be reduced.
Fig.25
HORIZONTAL / VERTICAL KEYSTONE
To get the best image quality, we recommend installing the
image on a surface which is perpendicular to the screen. If
the projected image is not level, adjust the feet on its base
to obtain a level position, lining up the base of the projected
image to the base of the projection screen (Fig.26).
If this adjustment is insufficient to centre the image, tilt the
projector and use the Vertical/horizontal keystone adjustment
to compensate for the resulting distortion.
LAMP POWER
If your room is especially dark, the images from the system
HT5000 ould result execessively bright. In order to enjoy wonderful images, the ECOMODE function activation allows to re du ce
the power used to feed the lamp. In this way, the brightness of
the image will be adapted to your projection conditions and
a grater life lamp will be guaranteed.

the temporary memory will contain new information that takes
account of any Memories that were selected in the penultimate
access to the ‘MEMORIES page.
Memory 0 can be used even when you do not wish to enable
Memories management for the signal in use. Once Memory 0
has been selected, when a source is chosen, the settings that
were effective at the time the Memory was previously recalled
will be automatically applied.

MESSAGES
The following messages could appear on your screen:
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 (e.g. after setting the components
input to YCrCb 15kHz a progressive signal is connected).

Lamp fails to switch on
• If this happens immediately after the last time the unit was
switched off, allow a few minutes between switching off and
switching on again. This will allow the lamp to cool down
sufficiently.
• If the lamp fails to illuminate - even though the unit has
had time to cool down - seek technical assistance from
your nearest Dealer.
• Check the state of the connection by interpreting the code
displayed by the system LEDs in accordance with Table 1.

• Make sure the selected input is connected to a video
or graphic signal and that that source is functioning correctly.
• Make sure the video or graphic signals supplied by the
source are compatible with the C3X1080 system’s technical specifications and, in particular, with those of the
selected input.
• Check the condition of the cables used to connect the
projector to its input sources. • Check the state of the connection by interpreting the code displayed by the system
LEDs.
• Make sure the cooling air vents on the units are not blocked
and that the ambient temperature is below 35°C.
