UNDERSTANDING MESSAGE FORMAT
All “remote control” information passes in and out of the projector as a simple text message consisting of a
three letter command code and any related data. Opening and closing round brackets (parentheses) surround
each message as shown below. Messages can be a command to set a projector parameter at a specific level,
such as changing to a certain channel. Or the controller can request information, such as what channel is
currently in use—the projector then returns the data in a reply message. Regardless of message type or origin,
all messages use the same basic format and code as shown here.

Figure 1 The 3 Message Formats (SHADED MESSAGE IS FROM PROJECTOR)
Where applicable, a message may expand to include additional parameters of related details. And, if desired,
you can choose to include optional information such as acknowledgements, checksums, and network
addressing.
2.1
BASIC MESSAGE STRUCTURE
The following component fields comprise a standard ASCII message. Optional fields, such as extra characters
for special modes, restrictions or added functionality, are shown in shaded areas.
START AND END OF MESSAGE: Every message begins with the left “(“character and ends with the right
“)“character. Note that if the start character is received before an end character of the previous message, the
partial (previous) message is discarded.
PREFIX CHARACTERS (OPTIONAL): For
acknowledgement that the projector has responded, and/or to maximize
message integrity, insert one or two special characters before the 3-character function code:
• $ - Acknowledgment. See 2.4 Maximizing Message Integrity, 2.4 Maximizing Message Integrity
• & - Checksum. See 2.4 Maximizing Message Integrity, 2.4 Maximizing Message Integrity
PROJECTOR NUMBERS (OPTIONAL): To control a selected projector or controller within a group, include its assigned
number or address just before the three-character ASCII function code.
FUNCTION CODE: The projector function you wish to work with, such as channel selection or gamma, is represented by
a three-character ASCII code (A-Z, upper or lower case). This function code appears immediately after the leading “(“that
starts the message. In messages sent to the projector, a space between the function code and the first parameter (or special
character) is optional.
REQUEST/REPLY SYMBOLS: If the controller is requesting information from the projector, a “?” question mark appears
directly after the function code. If the projector is replying, a “!” exclamation mark appears directly after the function
code. For set messages to the projector, neither of these characters appear—the code is followed by the data itself (see
next).

OTHER SPECIAL FUNCTIONS (OPTIONAL): To add functionality to the current message, include one or more of the
following special characters between the function code and first parameter. If more than one (M SP), add in any order.
• A - Auto Mode adjustment (rare—for video standard selection only). See 2.6 Other Special Functions, 2.6
Other Special Functions
• E - Enable Control Inquiry. See 2.6, Other Special Functions
• G - Global Control Inquiry. See 2.6, Other Special Functions
• H - Return the Help text for a control. See 2.6, Other Special Functions
• I - Used as an index for controls containing many values. See 2.6, Other Special Functions
• K - Keypad emulation. See 2.6 Other Special Functions, 2.6 Other Special Functions
• L - Return a list of options for ‘list’ controls. See2.6, Other Special Functions
• M - Find min/max adjustments (i.e., range). See 2.6 Other Special Functions, 2.6 Other Special Functions
• N - Return the name of the control. See 2.6, Other Special Functions
• S - Adjust a specific source setup only. See 2.6 Other Special Functions, 2.6 Other Special Functions
• T - Return the type of control (i.e. Slidebar etc.). See 2.6, Other Special Functions
• P - Adjust image in PIP window. See 2.6 Other Special Functions, 2.6 Other Special Functions
DATA: The value for a given projector state, such as “on” or “off”, appears in ASCII-decimal format directly after the
request/reply symbol. You can add an optional space after the symbol—i.e., before the data—in a set message, but data in
replies follow the “!” symbol without a space. Other details to remember about data:
• All values returned by the projector (reply messages) have a fixed length of either 3 or 5 characters regardless of the actual value—the value is padded with leading zeros as necessary.
• Data in set messages to the projector does not require padding with zeros.
• For any given parameter, data is always the same number of characters. E.g., the shutter value, which is
either “on” (1) or “off” (0) is always 3-digits: 001 or 000.
• Within each message, multiple parameters of data must be separated by one “space” character.
• Data pertaining to a source setup other than the current source setup is preceded by: the letter “S”, the source
setup number (i.e., channel), and a space. This is similar to an “extra” parameter P0.
• Text parameters such as channel names are enclosed in double quotes following the data, as in “Name”.
TEXT PARAMETERS: Most data is simply a numerical value, however some messages also require text. For example, a
channel naming message typically includes a text-based name after the channel number—enclose this text in double
quotation marks, as in “Tilt the Wagon”. Use all characters as desired except for the following special characters shown in
the left column below—these require a 2-character combination as shown:

WHAT IS ACTUALLY SENT IN A MESSAGE?
Although you will send and read messages as strings of ASCII characters, the actual message travels as a
sequence of bytes. Each character in this sequence requires 1 byte. See example below, which illustrates a
“lamp limit is 2000 hours” reply from the projector.

MAXIMIZING MESSAGE INTEGRITY
For additional reassurance and/or maximum message integrity, you can insert one or two special characters:
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS: If
you want
Message from Controller
Next Message from Controller
assurance from the projector (or group of
Message
projectors) that a set message has been
( $ Code
Data
) Processed
( $ Code
Data
)
processed, request this simple acknowledg$
$
ment by inserting a “$” just after the start
code “(“. When the projector executes the
required action (such as a source switch, for
Simple Acknowledge from Projector
example), the projector will send a “$”
(only) back. This is a quick way to confirm success with set messages, and is particularly useful with longdistance communication links or where the projectors and/or images are not visible from the controller.
Acknowledgements can also be a type of flow control. Note that requesting an acknowledgement serves no
purpose when included in a request message, since the acknowledgement will be redundant to the actual reply
from the projector. However, if requested, the “$” acknowledgement from the projector will follow the reply.
CHECKSUMS: For maximum message integrity, add a checksum character “&” just after the “(“as shown
below. You must then also include the correct checksum total (0-255) just before the “)” end code. Make sure
to add a space before the calculated checksum to separate it from the last data parameter:
(&con64 240)
The checksum is the low byte of the sum of the ASCII values of all characters between the “(“and the
beginning of the checksum. Calculate the checksum for the above “set contrast to 64” command as follows:
CHECKSUM EXAMPLE = & + c + o + n + 6 + 4 + ‘space’
= 26h+63h +6Fh +6E h +36h +$34h +$20h
= 01F0h
= F0h when only the low byte is used
= 240
The projector collects all of the message bytes as defined in the first byte of the message, then creates its own
checksum value for comparison with the checksum included in the controller’s message. If the values match,
the message is considered to have been correctly received—otherwise the message is discarded.

NOTES: 1) ‘h’ indicates a hex number. 2) If a “request” message has a checksum so will the reply. 3) If using
both “acknowledge” and “checksum”, either character can occur first.
2.5
ACCESSING SPECIFIC SOURCE SETUPS
For ASCII messages described in this document, it is assumed you are adjusting the current source setup
(channel) rather than a different specific one. However, for several commands (for example, ASR, Auto
Source) you can direct the message to particular source setup. To do this, insert an “S” and a source# (such as
“S5”) before the parameter value—the source setup number can be thought of as a “P0” parameter prior to the
first parameter, and can be preceded with an optional space. For example:
(ASR S25 1)
= Turn Auto-Source on for source setup #25
Use “S0” if your setting should be applied to all source setups (channels):
(ASR S0 1)
= Turn Auto-Source on for all source setups
The “S” source setup function cannot be used for parameters affecting the projector as a whole such as
projector address.
Other Examples:
2.6
(ASR 1)
= Turn ASR on for the current source setup
(ASR? S5)
= What is the ASR status for source setup #5?
(ASR!S005 001)
= ASR is on for source setup #5
(ASR? S7)
= What is the ASR status for source setup #7?
(ERR 006 “ASR: Source does not exist”)
= Source setup #7 does not exist
(ASR?)
= What is the ASR status for current source setup?
(ASR!000)
= ASR is off for current source setup
OTHER SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
To add functionality to a message, include one or more of the following special characters directly after the
start code “(“. If you add more than one, they can be in any order.
PARAMETER LIMITS: For single-parameter projector function codes, you can find out the current range of adjustment by
adding the letter “M” to your request message. For example:
(LPL?M)
What is the minimum and maximum lamp limit?
(LPL!M000 5000)
Minimum lamp limit = 0, maximum lamp limit = 5000.
Ranges cannot be determined in this manner if the function has multiple parameters. Note also that for textbased parameters, the “M” values represent the shortest and longest text strings possible.
“AUTO” MODE: For certain projector functions, you can add the letter “A” to your set message if you want software to
choose the appropriate setting. A reply with an “A” indicates that the choice was auto-selected. For example:
6 of 87
(STD A)
Set the video standard to the most appropriate option.
(STD?)
What is the current video standard?
(STD!A4)
The video standard was automatically set to option 4 (such as PAL-M).
LIT TECH REF TIPM Serial Command
020-100291-03 Rev. 1 (03-2010)
Note that in these projectors, auto mode is supported only for selecting a video standard. Although other
functions (such as Motion Filter) may offer an “Auto” choice in its list of options, a reply message from the
projector will not include “A” to indicate that “Auto” it is selected—auto is simply an option chosen like any
other.
ADJUSTING A PIP IMAGE: When there are two images on screen, all messages affect the primary image—that is, the
larger “background” image. To direct a message to the PIP window instead, add the letter “P” to your set message. For
example:
(CON P47)
In the PIP window, set contrast to 47.
(STD? P)
What is the current video standard used in the PIP window?
HELP TEXT: To have the Help Text for a specific command returned as a reply from the projector, add the letter “H” to
your request message. For example:
(CON?H)
(CON! “The Contrast is crushed”)
What is the help text for the Contrast Control?
Reply from the projector.
GLOBAL INQUIRY: Add the letter “G” in your request message to find out if the control is global. A reply of “001” is
returned if the control is global. For example:
(BDR?G)
Is BDR a global control?
(BDR!001)
BDR is a global control.
INDEX VALUE: When a control uses indexes for multiple values, insert an “I” into your request message to fin out the
specific value of the index parameter. For example:
(BRU? I22)
What is the value for Brightness Uniformity specified by index 22?
(BRU! 123)
The value is 123 for index 22.
ACCESSING A LIST: For a control with a list of available options, add the letter “L” to your request message to get a reply
of the available options in that list control in the order they appear in the menu. The reply message includes the following
four parameters:
P1=1, item selectable
P2=1, item displayable
P3=value of item
P4=text for item
Examples:
(STD?L)
What are the list options for the STD list control?
(STD!L001 001 00008 “Auto”)
(STD!L001 001 00007 “NTSC”)
(STD!L001 001 00003 “NTSC4.43”)
(STD!L001 001 00000 “PAL”)
(STD!L001 001 00004 “PAL-M”)
(STD!L001 001 00005 “PAL-C”)
(STD!L001 001 00006 “PAL-60”)
(STD!L001 001 00002 “SECAM”)
(STD!L001 001 00009 “?”)
(STD!L111 “—END—”)
LIT TECH REF TIPM Serial Command
020-100291-03 Rev. 1 (03-2010)
7 of 87
The end of the list is marked with P1=111. You can also access the text for a specific item in that list by adding the value
of that item after the L. For example:
(STD?L4)
What is the text for item for in the Video Standard list?
(STD!L001 001 00004 “PAL-M”)
CONTROL NAME: To find out the name of the control you are using, add the letter “N” to your request message. If the
control uses indexes for multiple values, insert the index number after the “N” to read the name of the index. For example:
(CON?N)
What is the name of the CON control?
(CON! “Contrast”)
(BRU?N2)
What is the name for index parameter 2 for BRU?
(BRU! “Left Side, R”)
(BRU?N6)
What is the name for index parameter 6 for BRU?
(BRU! “Top Left Corner, R”)
CONTROL TYPE: To find out the type of control it is that you are using, add the letter “T” to your request message. If
indexes are being used for control with multiple values, insert the index parameter after the “T” to find out the type of
control that the index is. For some slide bar or number controls, an additional parameter may be returned to specify the
number of decimal places the control uses and if the control is to be displayed as a percentage (0=min and 100=max). If
the reply message does not contain the letter “T”, than this function is invalid for that control. The parameters for control
types are:
0 = Special Format
1= Slide Bar
2 = Checkbox
3 = List
4 = Number
5 = Text
6 = “Reserved Control”
7 = Date
8 = Time
9 = IP (dotted quad)
Examples:
(STD?T)
(STD! T003)
(CON?T)
(CON! T001%000)
(EBB?T8)
(EBB! T004 237)
8 of 87
What type of control is STD?
STD is a List.
What type of control is CON?
CON is a slidebar that is currently at 0%.
What type of control is index parameter 8 of EBB?
EBB is a number control and it’s current value is 237.
LIT TECH REF TIPM Serial Command
020-100291-03 Rev. 1 (03-2010)
ENABLE INQUIRY: Add the letter “E” in your request message to find out if the control is enabled in the current context.
A reply of “001” is returned if enabled. If the control has and index for multiple values, that index should be used to read
the enable status.
(STD?E)
(STE!E001)
Is STD enabled in the current context?
STD is enabled.
KEYPAD EMULATION: Add the letter “K” in your set message to change to a quick “keypad mode” within the message.
The next value in the message now represents the adjustment of the parameter.
K0
K1
K2
K3
Stop the adjustment
Toggle check box state
Start decreasing a value, or moving the current image left/up
Start increasing a value, or moving the image right/down
Examples:
(LHO K2)
(LHO K0)
(FRZ K1)
Start moving the image left
Stop moving the image horizontally
Freeze or unfreeze the image on the active window
Keypad emulation is required in APR, FCS, LHO, LVO and ZOM messages set messages.
2.7
FLOW CONTROL
Normally messages can be sent to the projector before processing of earlier messages is complete—the projector will just
store messages in a buffer until ready to process. However, if a series of messages is sent it is possible that the projector
may not be able to process them as fast as they arrive and the buffer will become full. If this happens, the projector will
send the 13h (Xoff) code to instruct the controller (or any devices preparing to transmit) to cease transmission. At this
point, the controller must respond immediately and send no more than 10 extra characters or they may be lost (i.e., the
projector is able to accommodate the receipt of up to 10 more bytes after it sends 13h [Xoff]). When the buffer is once
again available, the projector will send a 11h (Xon) command to resume transmission.
NOTE: Xon and Xoff controls apply to both directions of communication. The projector will not send more
than 3 characters after it has received a 13h (Xoff) code.
FLOW CONTROL WITH “ACKNOWLEDGE”: If
the controller waits for each message to be acknowledged before
sending the next and the controller does not send a message that is longer than 20 characters, then the projector
will never send an Xoff and the controller does not have to handle them. If the projector has not received an
Xon after receiving an Xoff code, after a time out it will assume that the Xon was lost and start transmitting
again. If the controller has received an Xoff and no Xon within a reasonable time, it can assume that the Xon
was lost. These two time outs are projector-specific and are in the range of 3s-60s.

2.8
NETWORK OPERATION
Up to 1000 projectors can be linked together in a chain with the ‘OUT’ port on one connected to the ‘IN’ port
on the next. A controller connected to the ‘IN’ port on the first projector can control them all, either by
broadcasting messages which have no address and are thus seen by all projectors, or by directing messages to
specific projector addresses.
To work with a specific projector in a group, the projectors must first be assigned
a unique I.D.—either a projector number or an Ethernet IP address. Insert the
number of the target projector between the starting ‘(’ and the 3-character ASCII
code. See right 
Each projector compares the message address with its own address and, if
matching, responds and processes the message. If the address does not match, the
message is passed on until it reaches the intended projector.
Message for Specific
Projector
(
Addr
Code
Data
)
Although messages without an address are always broadcast, you can also broadcast by including the reply
destination address 65535. This ensures that replies go to a specific controller address rather than being
broadcast. The projector will also include its address in such as reply.
If you have more than one controller on a network, make sure to include
both a source address and a destination address. With a single controller on
the network, its address is never required. Place the source address between
the destination address and 3-character code, including a space before and
after as shown.

Note that replies from a projector do not contain an address unless the request message includes both a
destination address and a source address—i.e., a reply to a request having only a destination address will not
have any source address.

ASCII Codes
This section lists all ASCII message codes for controlling the projectors listed in 1 Overview. To fully
understand how an adjustment works or what it does in the projector and/or image, always consult the User
Manual provided with your projector.
General Notes to Remember:
• When a parameter for a specific source setup is accessed (refer to 2.5 Accessing Specific Source Setups) an
“S” is inserted between the command code (space) and P1 (no space).
• The smallest increment for adjusting any parameter is always 1.
• For some controls (Contrast, e.g.), the value displayed on the screen is a percentage while the actual hardware has a range of 0-255. In these cases, remember that ASCII values are correlations to the screen values,
and will not match numerically (ASCII 0 = 0%, ASCII 128=50.2%, etc.).

DETAILED SERIAL COMMAND DESCRIPTIONS
(ACE) AUTO COLOR ENABLE
DESCRIPTION
Use to automatically project a specific color or colors when working with controls such as Input Levels, Odd
Pixel Adjustment, and Color Saturation adjustments.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
Enable/Disable auto color controls.
(ACF) ACCUFRAME
DESCRIPTION
NOTE: APPLIES TO MATRIX PROJECTORS ONLY!
This control is used to reduct motion artifacts in images with sparse content. When used it will also reduce image
brightness and may increase image flicker, It should only be used when the motion artifacts are objectionable.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
Value Range varies with source image frame rate.
(ADR) PROJECTOR NUMBER
DESCRIPTION
Identifies or sets the projector’s assigned number (0-999) so that it can be controlled separately within a grup of
linked projectors. To change the Ethernet IP address via ASCII, refer to (XIP) Export IP.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
Valid Address range is 0 to 999.
(AGC) AUTOMATIC GAIN CONTROL
DESCRIPTION
Enable/disable the Automatic Gain Control. This control allows the decoder to automatically track the sync
amplitude of the incoming signal.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
(AIL) AUTO INPUT LEVELS
DESCRIPTION
If enabled, this control allows the projector to continuously monitor the input signal levels of the analog inputs
and make adjustments as needed. Whenever the projector detects a level that would lead to the crushing of black
or white levels, it adjusts the input offset or gain to compensate. If the input signal is not being crushed, the projector will do nothing.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
Perform auto input level on the main image.

(ALC) AUTOMATIC LENS CALIBRATION
DESCRIPTION
Automatic Lens Calibrationis used in conjunction with the Intelligent Lens Systems, refer to (ILS) Intelligent
Lens System to determine if a power on lens calibration should be initiated (see LCB). If ILS is turned on, and
ALC is also on, a lens calibration cycle will begin each time the projector is powered on. If ILS is on, but ALC is
off, the system will assume that the lens position has not been changed and reset the lens reference point to the
value it had when it was last turned off.
Having ALC on ensures an accurate reference point for the lens positioning system, while having if off saves the
time and disruption implicit in a power on calibration cycle. ALC defaults to on, however it will retain the user
setting across power cycles, so it remains in the state the user sets it to.
If ILS is activated, and if motion calibration has not been completed, calibration will proceed on a power up
regardless of the ALC setting. Please refer to the LBC lens calibration command for details.
Currently ILS is only active on the zoom and focus adjustments for Christie Projectors and automatic lens
calibration only applies to these as well.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
0 = Off, 1 = On
(APJ) ACTIVE PROJECTOR
DESCRIPTION
Use APJ to temporarily disable (0) or enable (1) the IR and wired keypad inputs to a specific projector in a
network of projectors. APJ is essentially the same as using the
PROJ
key, and is best understood as a way of
changing a projector’s listening status even though
and PROJ still work. NOTES: 1) APJ does not affect the
built-in keypad. 2) An APJ to disable the keypad does not change the state of the Communications menu
checkboxes for Front IR, Rear IR, Wired keypad—these will remain checked (on). 3) The keypads revert to
“enabled” after a power-down, or if the projector is unplugged and plugged in again.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
0 = Disable, 1 = Enable
(APR) OPTICAL APERTURE
DESCRIPTION
To adjust the optical aperture size from 0 to 9. Raided to improve contrast, lower to improve brightness.
NOTE: The DS+60 and Matriz 3000 (single-chip projectors) require keypad emulation for serial adjustment of
the optical aperture.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
Range 0 to 9
EXAMPLES:
(APR K2) - Start increasing the aperture size (higher brightness)
(APR K3) - Start decreasing the aperture size (higher contrast)
(APR K0) - Stop changing the aperture size
NOTE: To “nudge” the aperture size, script in a delay between (APR K3) and (APR K0). Depending on your
application, a delay of at least 20-30 milliseconds may be sufficient.

(CSP) COLOR SPACE
CONTROL GROUP: Input
SUBCLASS: Power Up
ACCESS LEVEL: Operator
DESCRIPTION
This control specifies which color space the input signal uses. This determines how the color components are
decoded for accurate color in the display. Color space control only applies to analog input signals. Although the
proper color space is normally determined automatically by the projector, you can override the setting. Use RGB
unless you are using component video. Use YPbPr(SDTV) for most video sources. Use YPbPr(HDTV) for high
definition signals.
NOTE: When certain RGB signals are first connected, the projector may not initially recognize them as RGB and
may incorrectly decode their color information as YPbPr(SDTV). These signals can include: RGB signals in
NTSC, PAL, SECAM frequency ranges, Scan-doubled sync-on-green, Scan-quadrupled sync-on-green. For these
signals, change the Color Space to RGB, then define a new channel for future use.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE

(DEF) FACTORY DEFAULTS
DESCRIPTION
Use DEF to reset all parameters in the projector to factory defaults—all source setups are deleted, all factorydefined color palettes are restored, and all user adjustments/preferences are set to default values. DEF may also
change your baud rate and projector number.
NOTE: You must include P1 = 111 in any DEF message. This requirement prevents accidental use of DEF.
Because the DEF message can take a fairly long time, it is a good idea to include the optional Acknowledge code
($) to determine when the defaults have been completed—i.e., ($def 111).

(DRK) DARK INTERVAL
DESCRIPTION
Control the time interval—in active output lines—between frames projected to the screen, so that active 3D applications are well-synchronized with shutters in 3D glasses. Range depends on source frequency. For 3D models
only.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
(DTA) SOURCE DATA
DESCRIPTION
Use DTA to read from the projector (or load into the projector) all of the settings related to a specific source setup
(1-50), or pertaining to system parameters. This essentially creates a back-up. If a source setup does not exist, use
DTA to define all settings for it. This essentially creates a back-up.
Keep in mind that a DTA request triggers reply messages for each setting in a source setup. Because of the large
number of replies, requesting an acknowledgement from the projector ($) is a good idea—receiving the ($) back
confirms that the projector has returned all data and completed the full DTA reply.
For reading settings (data) for all souce setup, use P1=0 ($DTA?S0). The reply will be a sequence of replies for
each source. If you requested an achnowledgement ($), it will arrive after the last reply for the last source, refer to
the example below.
For downloading source setup settings (data) to a projector, send a DTA message. This will define a new source
setup, and include the specified parameters (ferer back to the “Reading Setting for a Specific Source Setup”. See
below for an example.
Settings for projector preferences are either Transferable or Projector-specific, refer to reading prefernce settings
example below.
To download preference settings to a projector, just send the various settings as separate commands—DTA is not
used. Take special care when sending BDR (Baud Rate) and ADR (Projector # or Address) messages, as they
change the way your network operates and you may accidentally break communication. For example, BDR
should always be broadcast to all projectors or you will be unable to talk to some projectors.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
P1
The number of the source setup to read - must have leading ‘S’:
For example, ($DTA? S5)

Return min/max values for control
P1 = postion
Not used
Move current channel to this position
Entering a position will also cause movement to that position when ILS is turned On.
NOTE: This command will take some time to complete. Repeated commands must allow sufficient time for the previous
movement to complete; hence it is not suitable for frequent or continuous lens positioning using ILS. Refer to the LDM
command for this functionality.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE

(ILS) INTELLIGENT LENS SYSTEM
DESCRIPTION
This enables (1) the lens settings to be saved / restored when the channel is changed. When off (0), changing the
channel does not affect the lens settings. When ILS is activated it may cause a query to proceed with lens motor
calibration (see LCB). Lens calibration is necessary for ILS to function. Since calibration will take a couple of
minutes, the user is allowed to decline and leave ILS turned off.
If calibration has already been completed, it may be skipped by switching OFF the Automatic Lens Calibration
(ALC). Refer to ALC for details on this operation.

(IOP) IMAGE OPTIMIZATION
DESCRIPTION
With the IOP control, the user can choose whether raw image quality or the cleanness of image transitions is more
important.
Choosing Best Image Quality allows scalar resources to be allocated under some conditions to improve image
quality in the form of deeper pixel depth. However, when switching sources, the screen will go blank and increase
your switching time.
Choosing Smooth Switching allows for cleaner transitions and/or fading when a user selects a new source to be
displayed. The images will fade from the old image to the new image according to the Fade Time control (FAD).
Seamless Switching overrides the Frame Lock Enable (FLE) settings and forces the output to run at 60Hz regardless of the input signal. The image is 100% seamless when switching sources.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
P1
0 = Best Image Quality
1 = Smooth Switching
2 = Seamless Switching
NOTES: 1) These settings have no effect on the Roadie 25K. It
does not support seamless switching (which includes Fade Time).
There will be dark time between switches. 2) IOP and PIP use the
same resources and therefore cannot be used at the same time.

(LCB) LENS CALIBRATE
DESCRIPTION
This forces the projector to calibrate the lenses/motors and is intended for use in conjunction with Christie Digital's Intelligent Lens System (ILS) or Lens Direct Motion (LDM) . Lens Calibration is not necessary if neither of
these features is in use.
Lens Calibration is currently supported only on Roadie 35K and Christie Digital's Easy Rider Family of Projectors.
Motorized lens elements, which have positional feedback capability, require calibration before they can be used
properly. Positional control is used in Christie Digital's Intelligent Lens System (ILS) or Lens Direct Motion
(LDM ) as listed elsewhere in this document . Lens calibration is mandatory for the use of these features.
For each such motorized adjustment there are two types of calibration possible:
1. Homing Reference Calibration establishes an absolute position reference for each motor independently. Reference calibration must be done each time power is cycled because this reference is lost when power is removed.
2. Motion Calibration calculates and sets motion parameters that optimize individual motor response for
accurate positional placement and acceleration profile. This ensures that motors are controlled in a manner which
will allow them enough power to overcome drag forces with minimum overshoot. This type of calibration only
needs to be done once for each lens since the system will remember the values obtained, however it can be done at
any time the user wishes.

(LCB) Lens Calibrate con’t
DESCRIPTION
Calibration of the lens can be executed independently of the use of either of the ILS or LDM features; however it
is required before either ILS or LDM features can be used successfully. All manually placed movement does not
require calibration since the final position is directly controlled by the user activated keys and not by positional
feedback.
If ILS is turned on when the projector is activated, lens calibration will proceed automatically (user will be
prompted if necessary) provided that automatic lens calibration (see ALC) is also enabled. If the motion calibration has not been done, and ILS has been activated, the ALC setting will be over-ridden and full lens calibration
will take place on power up regardless of the ALC setting. The ALC setting will become operational on the next
power cycle.
If the lens is out of calibration for any reason (typically the lens has been removed or exchanged) and the ALC is
set, no reference calibration will occur on power up and the current positional settings may be incorrect or corrupted. The user will have to manually intervene and recalibrate either by turning on the automatic calibration or
by doing a manually initiated calibration.
The user is required to ensure all calibrations are done before using LDM commands, since this feature is by
nature a user controlled movement.
If ILS or LDM features are not used, neither calibration is necessary and will not be asked for.
Roadie 35K / Upgrade to Optimus Lens Mount

(LCN) LENS CENTER
DESCRIPTION
This command will move each of the lens motors to their center position. This will also re-synchronize the position of the lens hardware with the values stored in memory. If an older motorized lens mount is being used, this
command will calibrate all motors.
This command is only implemented on the Roadie HD+35K model.

(LCO) LAMP CONDITIONING
DESCRIPTION
This command is unique to Philips UHP lamp driver as used in Zeus Dual Lamp Single Chip projectors. UHP
lamps can be subject to random image flicker. This control pulses the lamp and causes the electrodes to wear back
down to a single point. The reduction of flicker is not likely to be immediate.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
This command accepts either 0 or 1. 0 = Off, 1 = On.
(LDM) LENS DIRECT MOTION
DESCRIPTION
Used to directly control the position of a motorized lens. Element applies only to the focus and zoom motorized
lens. NOTE: You must first ensure that calibration has been done before LDM will work correctly.
LDM commands will only work if the command has been enabled (the default condition). The lens motors must
also have been calibrated as described within Lens Calibration (LCB). It is important to note that calibration is
not automatic; the user will be required to do at least a Home Reference Calibration before the LDM command
can be used successfully (refer to LCB for a full description).
There are two types of LDM motion control possible: positional placement or tracking placement.
Positional placement allows the user to enter a positional value and have the respective motor move to that location. The commanded value must be in the user specified input range (or the default range if not changed). Positional placement allows accurate placement of the motor and is best suited for single location commands;
however multiple locations can be sent as a sequence of commanded positions and the motor will follow the commanded position as fast as it is physically possible to do so. Issuing a new command will automatically cancel a
previous one, with the new command starting where the last one left off (movement finished or not). The currently active command will proceed to the last destination entered and will stop automatically when that position
has been reached. When using positional placement with repeated commands the position may seem to lag the
commands by a significant amount caused by limitation of the motor top speed and the ability to physically track
positional commands.
Tracking placement is intended for user input from control devices such as a trackball or scroll wheel. In this case
the user entry is still a series of commanded positions as before; however these positions are used to calculate a
speed and direction of motor movement based on the incremental change in commanded positions. This is to say
that the input is treated as velocity inputs and not positional inputs. Therefore as long as the input is changing the
specified motor will move with a speed and direction proportional to the motion of the device. Motion will stop
shortly after user input stops. Final position is tied to where and when the input stops changing, and NOT to a
specific commanded position.

(LDM) Lens Direct Motion con’t
When using tracking mode, the sensitivity of the motion can be adjusted by modifying the accumulator depth and/
or the gain factor. A shorter accumulator depth will make the response more active, while a longer depth will
make it more stable. A smaller acceleration factor will cause more rapid acceleration, while a larger factor will
provide better positional control. The effects are similar and additive for these two parameters. These two
parameters only have an effect on tracking mode and do nothing when positional commands are used instead.
The user may scale the input to define a full scale range defined by a start and end position. By default these values are 0 and 65535. The user may change this to any values in between (provided start is less than end) these
limits. The command will automatically scale the user input to the full range of possible motion for that motor.
Target positions are stated in the user scale, so if the user scales the input the target command should be a number
within that range. If not set, the default values will apply.
The user can also query the projector to find the current user parameters for the LDM command and also to read
back the current position of the requested motor. The position that is read back is also scaled to the user input
scale.
The user may user a combination of current position read back and setting of target position to control the motors
by a user implemented scheme; or simply use it to send the motor to a desired position.
It is recommended that ILS be turned off if LDM commands are to be issued as a frequent sequence of positions.
This will prevent ILS from over-riding LDM commands. All automatic motion, including calibration and ILS,
have priority over LDM commands.

(LST) LAMP STATISTICS
DESCRIPTION
NOTE: This selection is only necessary when using projectors that are HD (1920x1080) resolution.
HD class projectors have a memory module attached to the lamp which logs or contains lamp information that is
intended to travel with the lamp. This allows lamps to travel between different machines and retain a history of
lamp use. The information contained within the logs depends on the type of projector in use (currently either low
power or high power HD projectors). Please refer the module specification for details on the data sampled in each
case.
New lamp related data is gathered on each power up and then sampled at regular intervals thereafter. A new
record is made each time a significant change occurs in any monitored variable. This provides an irregular sampling which allows for maximum data collection over extended time periods. When triggered, all variables are
recorded and time-stamped to capture the current state of the projector as it is related to the lamp. These are
referred to as standard records. If any variable crosses a critical threshold the associated standard record is copied and stored as a critical record. This allows a separate data tracking of problem events. In addition to this, a
summary is kept of significant data to report average values and durations as well as an indicator of the amount of
variability in the data points. This is referred to as a summary record. Therefore a full lamp data set contains the
lamp information table, summary table and any existing standard and/or critical records. Any number of lamps
(up to the physical limit of memory) can be created and stored. High power lamp logs are consistent with all high
power projectors, and low power logs with low power projectors. High power logs are not compatible with Low
power logs.

(LST) Lamp Statistics con’t
The current lamp record is allowed to make free use of all remaining memory within the storage device. Once the
memory becomes full new standard records will replace the oldest standard record, and new critical records will
replace the oldest critical record. This allows retention of records to a minimum depth. This depth has a default
value of 30 standard records and 15 critical records (minimum), but can go as deep as memory will allow for a
maximum.
In high power units lamps may have their bulbs changed. This is handled by creating a new lamp data set and
copying over the lamp serial number, essentially creating a new lamp data set that can be cross-referenced to the
old by serial number. This is available by a variation of the command listed below (also available from user onscreen menu when it applies).
When lamps are first installed their memory space will be unformatted. To allow the system to start up smoothly
without missing data a unspecified lamp data set is created and begins logging immediately; however the serial
number will be listed as NA (not available) and will have to be entered by the user at some later time.
Alternatively a new lamp data set can be created at any time by entering a new lamp install command (also available from user on-screen menu). When new lamps are installed the existing data is compressed to the last specified number of records to keep (standard and critical are separately specified). This opens up space for a new
lamp data set.
A new lamp data set can not be created if no serial number exists in the current lamp data set. This restriction will
be removed as soon as a valid serial number is entered in the current lamp data set by the user. Typically new
lamps are created with the serial number included so this restriction normally would not be encountered.
When the memory becomes full enough, it will no longer accept new lamp data sets. This can be over-ridden by
downloading the existing data and re initializing the memory to start afresh; however it is not expected to be necessary.
Some of the commands listed below make use of a number of constant parameters to protect the data base from
accidental changes which cannot be reversed. These commands are highlighted in light red and are generally considered diagnostic or corrective in nature and should not be used under normal circumstances.
A number of options are available for listing collected data and are shown below in the tables.
Please refer to the module specification for more detailed information.
Definitions for the parameters used by each command are listed below.

(MNU) MENU STATUS
DESCRIPTION
The MNU command has two uses. One is to get the current status of the menus and customize the menu
structure and the other is to define and activate a custom menu.
When using serial commands to operate the menu, likely don’t want the menu to appear on the screen.
To prevent the menu from appearing on the screen while using serial commands, use the OSD
command. In addition, you may want to disable the keypads using the KEN command.
Some menus automatically change particular settings to make adjustments easier. Depending on the
context, you may also need to send:
• ACE x
• MNU 3 x
to enable or disable Automatic Color Enables
to enable or disable Automatic Test Pattern selection
MNU can also be used to create a custom menu. For example, (MNU “My Menu” “BRT” “CON”
“PIP”), produces a custom menu called “My menu” consisting of the Brightness, Contrast, and Picture
in Picture Enable controls.
You can combine this with a RTE FUNC key event to make the custom menu available from a keypad,
see Example below.
Note: This menu is not saved anywhere - as soon as you exit from it, it will no longer exist and when you want to
display it again you must send the MNU command, with all the controls, again. It is expected that this command
will be used in conjunction with a function key RTE command which will save the command. This will allow the
menu to appear anytime the specified <func>-<#> key sequence is pressed.

DESCRIPTION
Use PWR to turn the projector power on or off, or to use special modes during a download, or to see the current

Note that “Boot” is a special mode activated automatically when KoRE 10-bit Librarian downloads new code to
the projector—do not use the ASCII Boot setting. If a problem is detected with the main code on power up, the
projector will go directly into boot mode and stay there until new code is downloaded. Likewise, the no-lamp
mode is only used when downloading code to certain sub-modules that are not accessible when all power is off.
This mode can only be toggled to and from the power “off” state. If more parameters are sent they are ignored.
The ‘warm up’ state is returned when the projector is in the process of changing between powered down and up,
and is not intended as a set message. If you send a warm up set message, the projector will power up.

any new characters are ignored.
If the message ($pwr1) is used to turn power on the '$' acknowledge is not returned till after the warm up is
complete. If the message ($pwr0) message is used to power down, the '$' is returned while the projector is still in
the cool down state. This is because cool down takes 5 minutes and in all other respects the projector has
powered down.

(REM) REMOTE COMMANDS
DESCRIPTION
Allows arbitrary serial data to be sent out a specified port and the data can also be read from that port. It is
intended to be used in conjunction with the RTE commands to allow a single event to control other equipment
connected to the projector.
Before being used, a port must be configured. After configuration, the port cannot be used for standard Christie
protocol commands until that port is reconfigured as a Christie port again. See tables below for setting port
configuration, reading port configuration and sending and receiving arbitrary data from a port.

(SST) SYSTEM STATUS
DESCRIPTION
Use SST to find out a variety of information about the current state of the projector. The single broad-ranging request
(SST?) for all information triggers the return of a series of replies as if multiple requests had been sent. In each of these
status replies, P1 explains the general content or topic in the reply, and P2 the individual details. To obtain status regarding
one topic only, specify the desired P1parameter corresponding to that topic in your request—for example, the request
(SST?0) will trigger general projector information only. For a specific single-status inquiry, include both P1 and P2 in the
request—for example, (SST?4 2) asks whether the lamp door is open or closed. Thus you can use the SST request
command in 3 ways:
(SST?) returns all results along with descriptive text/data. The specifics within each of the five status groups will vary from
model to model (Roadster vs. DS+60 vs. Roadie 25K, etc., etc.) and be affected by options installed, software versions and
other factors, thus a general SST inquiry is a good way to establish exactly what status reports are available for your
projector.

(WKC) 2D KEYSTONE CORNERS
DESCRIPTION
NOTE: Requires Christie TWIST™ module.
Use WKC to set or request the x/y coordinates for the four corners defining “2D keystone”, i.e. a 4-sided image
shape.
Any coordinate value that is ½ that of the native resolution of the projector defines a “normal” location (i.e., no
warping). For example, in a projector with 1400 x 1050 resolution, any “x” value of 700 is normal. A value over
700 moves a corner to the right; a value below 700 moves a corner to the left. A value of 0 moves a corner as far
from center as possible (which may be off the screen). You can move a point towards center by a distance that is
¼ of the full resolution—for example, you can move the top left point to the right by a maximum distance of 350
pixels, which is ¼ of the total 1400 pixels available.
PARAMETER

(XAR) XPort ArtNet Settings con’t
The following table indicates how individual parameters for ArtNet settings can also be accessed using the form
(XAR? I<index>) for a specific request and (XAR I<index> <value>) to set individual parameters.
(XAR?4) - Request the Device Name.
(XAR I3 47) - Set the base or starting channel to 47.
(XAR I5 “Projector 5: bottom left corner”) - Set the description to “Projector 5: bottom left corner”.
(XIP) XPORT IP
DESCRIPTION
Set or request the IP address, Port, Subnet Mask, Gateway IP and Network Name (the port is optional in a set
message). A reply shows the parameters, separated by a colon and followed by a flag which indicates if this
address was assigned by a DHCP server (1) or whether it is a static address (0) defined manually by a user or
administrator. This first method outlines how to access IP address and Port information only.
P1 = IP address and/or port, separated by a colon.
Flag = Shows if DHCP is enabled (1) or disabled (0).
To enable DHCP (so that a DHCP server automatically assigns a valid address), use XIP to set the IP address to
0.0.0.0.
XIP can also be used in accordance with the following table to set and request information in the form (XIP?
I<index>) for a request and (XIP I<index> <value>) to set (this is the only way to access the Subnet Mask,
Gateway and Network Name if desired):

PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
<No Parameter>
Set the vertical position for the main image.
EXAMPLES:
(XIP?) - Request the IP and port on the device. Previous request returns (XIP!192.168.001.100:10001 00001):
The projector’s IP address is 192.168.001.100, it’s port is 10001, and this address has been assigned by a DHCP
server.
(XIP192.168.1.100:3002) - Set the IP on the device to 192.168.1.100 and the port to 3002
(XIP192.168.1.100) - Set the IP on the device to 192.168.1.100. Do not change the port.
(XIP0.0.0.0) - Set projector’s address to 0.0.0.0 so that a DHCP server will assign a valid address. Do not change
the port.
(XIP I0 192.168.0.1) - Set the IP address to 192.168.0.1.
(XIP I2 1) - Explicitly set DHCP mode to on. This will override any previously set IP address.
(XIP I3 255.255.255.0) - Set the Subnet Mask to 255.255.255.0.
(XIP I5 “Projector4”) - Set the Network Name to “Projector4”.

(ZOM) ZOOM
DESCRIPTION
Change the zoom setting of the lens under motor control.
Non-ILS projectors
The value is not stored. Key emulation is used to change the settings (see the Key Emulation Section of this
document).
ILS projectors
The value is stored for each saved channel, however the key emulation continues to be supported as described
above. A channel value can be changed by the following command:
Modifier
Parameter 1
Parameter2
Description
S
P1 = channel number
P2=position (0-9999)
Set source to value and move if currently active
M
P1 = channel number
Not used
Return min/max for control
P1 = position
Not used
Move current channel to this position
Entering a position will also cause movement to that position when ILS is turned on.
NOTICE: This command will take some time to complete. Repeated commands must allow sufficient time for the
previous movement to complete; hence it is not suitable for frequent or continuous lens positioning using ILS.
Please refer to the LDM command for this functionality.
PARAMETER
DESCRIPTION OF USE
(see ILS projectors above)
(see ILS projectors above)
EXAMPLE:
(ZOM K0) Stop Zoom Movement, Lens will not stop until this command is issued or the end stop is reached.
(ZOM K2) +ve Zoom Direction.
(ZOM K3) -ve Zoom Direction.
NOTE: To “nudge” the zoom a minimum amount, script in a delay between (ZOM K3) and (ZOM K0).
Depending on your application, a delay of at least 20-30 milliseconds may be sufficient.
(ZOM S1 4000)Set zoom for channel 1 to 4000 and, if channel 1 is active source, move to this position
(ZOM? S1)Return the position for channel 1: (ZOM! 0001 04000)
(ZOM? M1)Return min max values for channel 1: (ZOM? 00000 09999)
(ZOM 4000)Set zoom of current channel to 4000 and move to this position
