PlasmaWall XP Series Installation/Operation Manual
Introduction
The PlasmaWall XP Series Flat-Panel Plasma Display Monitor and DHD Controller
establish a higher threshold for flat panel display products. The PlasmaWall XP Series is
available in three sizes, including our largest and highest-resolution plasma ever, at 103
inches diagonal and 1920 x 1080 (1080p) native resolution.

Description, Features
and Benefits
The PlasmaWall takes picture quality to a whole new level, boasting our brightest picture,
best contrast ratio, deepest black levels and most spot-on high definition colorimetry ever!
In addition, sophisticated 16-bit digital video processing, a new milestone, results in 4096
steps of graduation for seamless images completely devoid of the primitive "solarization"
and "stair stepping" characteristics previously plaguing digital flat panel displays.

The PlasmaWall features all of the Runco technologies you have come to expect from the
World's Finest Home Theater Products. Discrete, multiple aspect ratio control includes
VirtualWide™ for viewing 4:3 content in widescreen without appreciable picture
degradation, as well as ISF(ccc) calibration modes to easily maintain ISF standards. The
automation interface includes RS-232 control with discrete aspect ratio, input and power
on/off selection.
The included Digital High-Definition (DHD) Video Controller/Scaler/Processor provides a
pure digital signal path from input to output as well as a broad array of video input
choices, all available from its position in the equipment rack, with only digital video and
command cables running to the display itself.
The PlasmaWall not only represents a leap forward in high definition flat-panel technology,
but our engineering advances in plasma design ensure that it will enjoy a long life in any
installation, with operation extending to as much as 60,000 hours. At less than 5-3/4
inches thin, the PlasmaWall provides unlimited installation flexibility as well.

PlasmaWall XP Series Installation/Operation Manual
Installation
Proper installation of your PlasmaWall will ensure the highest possible picture quality.
Whether you are installing the PlasmaWall temporarily or permanently, you should take the
following into account to ensure that it performs optimally.
The extremely large size and high power consumption of the XP-103DHD place unique
demands upon both the installation personnel and the installation site, over and above
those of the 50-inch and 65-inch PlasmaWall models.
3.3
Installation
Considerations
Special Requirements for
the XP-103DHD
Installing the XP-103DHD requires the following:
Y
• Several people familiar with complex mechanical installations.
• A dedicated 220VAC circuit.
EL
IM
IN
A
R
• Specialized equipment.
• A “carry-in” path with sufficient clearances.
• An installation location that can support the weight of both the plasma panel and
mounting hardware (floor pedestal or wall mount).
These and other installation requirements are detailed in a document called Runco
XP-103DHD Installation Site Pre-Qualification, available from your Runco dealer or
representative, or from www.Runco.com. Before proceeding with an XP-103DHD
installation, obtain, read and make sure you understand everything in this document.
Due to the design of all plasma glass panels made by every manufacturer, and the
interaction between ambient air pressure and the plasma gases contained inside of the
panel, reliable operation of your plasma display cannot be assured during operation at
certain high-altitude locations.
High-Altitude Operation
PR
Runco has found all PlasmaWall models to operate reliably at altitudes of up to 9,000 feet
MSL (mean sea level).
At higher elevations, each panel may react differently, depending upon the altitude, air
pressure, humidity and other meteorological factors. If you are planning to use this
product at a location above 9,000 feet, please contact Runco technical support for further
information.
To install the PlasmaWall, you will need either an optional table stand, floor pedestal or
wall-mounting kit. (The XP-103DHD must be either wall-mounted or attached to a floor
pedestal.)
If you do decide to wall-mount the PlasmaWall, ensure that the wall-mount bracket is
installed according to the instructions included with it. The wall must be capable of
supporting a redundant weight factor five (5) times the weight of the display, or be
reinforced.
Runco recommends that this be done by a custom installation specialist.
Note
Use only a Runco-approved wall-mount kit, table stand or floor
pedestal that is specifically designed for your display. Refer to
Parts List on page 4 for ordering information.

Mounting the PlasmaWall
on a Wall or Table
Stand/Floor Pedestal
Installation
You can attach your optional mounts or stand to the PlasmaWall in either of two ways:
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Y
• While it is upright.
• As it lies flat with the screen face
down. Place the protective sheet,
which was wrapped around the
plasma monitor when it was
packaged, between the screen and
your work surface to avoid
scratching or otherwise damaging
the screen surface.
PR
Ambient Light ➤
Ventilation ➤
In general, minimize or eliminate light sources directed at the display. Contrast ratio in your
images will be noticeably reduced if light directly strikes the display, such as when a shaft
of light from a window or floodlight falls on the image. Images may then appear washed
out and less vibrant.
If you are mounting the PlasmaWall in an enclosure, leave sufficient space on all sides
between it and surrounding objects, as shown in Figure 3-2 or Figure 3-3. This allows heat
to disperse, maintaining the proper operating temperature.

Audio/Video ➤
Synchronization Issues
Due to its extraordinarily high level of video processing performance, the DHD Controller
may distribute video signals with a perceptible level of audio latency. In order to easily
solve this issue, Runco recommends using the DHD Controller with a high-quality audio
receiver that has the ability to effectively synchronize audio and video signals.
Most mainstream audio receiver/switchers have the ability to synchronize the audio and
video to the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) prescribed tolerances.
According to the ATSC, the sound program should never lead the video program by more
than 15 milliseconds, and should never lag behind the video program by more than 45
milliseconds.
Y
In addition, many A/V receivers introduce additional latency that needs to be
compensated for during the installation. Table 3-2 shows the amount of possible audio
latency given different signal input timings.

Installation
Here are some other considerations and tips that can help improve your installation, avoid
damage and prolong operating life:
• Keep the ambient temperature constant and below 35°C (95°F). Keep the display away
from heating and/or air conditioning vents. Changes in temperature may cause drifts in
the display circuitry, which may affect performance.
• Keep the PlasmaWall away from devices that radiate electromagnetic energy such as
motors and transformers. Common sources of these include slide projectors,
speakers, power amplifiers and elevators.
• Handle the unit carefully when installing or carrying it. Use the built-in handles; DO NOT
touch or hold the screen face.
Y
• Set the unit away from heat, excessive dust, and direct sunlight.
EL
IM
IN
A
R
• Protect the inside of the unit from liquids and small metal objects. In case of accident,
unplug the power cord and have it serviced by an authorized Service Center.
• Do not hit or scratch the panel surface as this causes flaws on the surface of the
screen.
• For correct installation and mounting it is strongly recommended to use a trained,
authorized dealer.
PR
• To avoid sulfurization, it is strongly recommended not to place the unit in a dressing
room in a public bath or hot spring bath.

Use the controls in the Picture Menu to calibrate your PlasmaWall for optimum picture
quality.
The PlasmaWall has been designed to incorporate setup and calibration standards
established by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF). The ISF has developed carefully
crafted, industry-recognized standards for optimal video performance and has
implemented a training program for technicians and installers to use these standards to
obtain optimal picture quality from Runco video display devices. Accordingly, Runco
recommends that setup and calibration be performed by an ISF certified installation
technician.

All signal types require separate processing. Therefore, you need to calibrate each DHD
Controller input separately.
When you change a picture quality setting, save the change to a
preset afterwards. Otherwise, the change will be lost when a
different input is selected. (Picture quality settings are saved for
each input separately.) For information about saving settings, refer
to Memory Presets on page 47.

Note
Although it may be possible to obtain satisfactory picture quality using the naked eye and
regular program material, Runco recommends using an external test pattern source
(Ovation Multimedia, Digital Video Essentials or AVIA test DVD or equivalent) for best
results.
Connect your test pattern source to the input that you are calibrating and proceed as
follows. Perform the adjustments in the order listed here.

Overscan/Overscan Mode: Overscan pushes the outside edge of the active picture
area of the video signal out beyond the edge of the display area.
Some television programs are produced based on the assumption that older television
sets may not display the outer edges of the broadcast picture area. Overscan effectively
trims away these inactive, outer edges and enlarges the remaining portion of the image to
fill the display area.
For HDTV, DVDs and other video sources, Overscan is generally not necessary or
desirable.
This control defines the amount of overscan applied to the image. The range is from
0 to 20. There are two overscan modes:
PR
• In Crop mode, each increment adds a mask at the top, bottom, left and right edges of
the source image equal to 0.5% of the displayed horizontal resolution (1% total). A
setting of 10, for example, crops the image 5% on all sides or 10% total.
• In Zoom mode, each increment adds a factor to the scaling of the source image so
that the vertical and horizontal resolutions are 100% plus 1% increments of the size
determined by the aspect ratio function. A setting of 10, for example, zooms in on the
image 5% on all sides or 10% total.
Figure 4-6 illustrates the effect of each overscan mode setting.

Phase (RGB, Component or SCART sources): This control adjusts the phase of the
pixel sampling clock relative to the incoming signal. Adjust the phase when an RGB,
Component or SCART image still shows shimmer or “noise” after Tracking has been
optimized.
Adjust the Phase after adjusting Tracking (see below).
PR
Tip
For best results, use a good test pattern such as a smooth gray consisting of a clear
pattern of black and white pixels, or a similar “half on, half off” graphic image. Adjust the
slidebar until the image stabilizes and each pixel is clearly defined. You may notice that
you can stabilize the image at more than one point. Use either setting in such cases.
Tracking (RGB, Component or SCART sources): Tracking determines the frequency
of the pixel sampling clock, indicated by the number of incoming pixels per line, so that all
pixels generated by a particular source are sampled.
Steady flickering or several soft vertical stripes or bands across the entire image indicates
poor pixel tracking. Proper pixel tracking helps ensure that the image quality is consistent
across the screen, that aspect ratio is maintained and that pixel phase (see above) can be
optimized.
46
PlasmaWall XP Series Installation/Operation Manual

For each input, the PlasmaWall lets you save image quality settings as presets that you
can recall at a later time. You can create up to four presets per input and display mode

• Gain: Use the Gain controls to correct color imbalances in the bright areas of the
image. A good way to do this is to use a test pattern consisting mostly of solid white
areas, such as an 80 IRE “window” pattern. If the white areas contain traces of red (Pr),
green (Y) or blue (Pr), decrease the Gain for that color.
• Offset: Use the Offset controls to correct color imbalances in the dark areas of the
image. A good way to do this is to use a test pattern consisting mostly of dark gray
areas, such as a 30 IRE “window” pattern. If the gray areas contain traces of red (Pr),
green (Y) or blue (Pr), decrease the Offset for that color.
• Gamma: Select Gamma from the Display Color menu to choose a de-gamma curve.
Used correctly, the Gamma control can improve contrast while maintaining good
details for blacks and whites. If excess ambient light washes out the image and it
becomes difficult or impossible to see details in dark areas, lower the gamma setting to
compensate. This improves contrast while maintaining good details for blacks.
Conversely, if the image is washed out and unnatural, with excessive detail in black
areas, increase the setting.

What are “color points?” A “color point” is an x/y coordinate pair that defines a
color’s location on the standard CIE chromaticity graph, shown in Figure 4-7. (CIE
stands for “Commission Internationale de l’Éclairage” (International Commission on
Illumination), the organization responsible for color measurement and management
standards.)

you can use a single remote and change the IR code as needed to address a
specific DHD Controller.
Tip
Use the DHD Controller front-panel keypad to change the IR code to
which the controller will respond. Then, change the code sent by the
remote to match as described below.
When you change a remote code on the PlasmaWall, you must re-program the

• The default setting, Auto, functions as follows:
• HDMI: If the Auxiliary Video Information (AVI) infoframe contains color space and/or
range data, the PlasmaWall uses that information. Otherwise, for RGB sources, the
PlasmaWall uses the RGB-Video color space. For component SDTV and EDTV
resolutions, REC601 is used. For other component video resolutions, REC709 is
used.
• RGB: If Hsync or Vsync signals are present, the PlasmaWall uses the RGB-PC color
space. Otherwise, REC601 is used for SDTV and EDTV sources, and REC709 for
all other sources.
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Y
• Component: For SDTV and EDTV resolutions, the PlasmaWall uses the REC601
color space. For all other resolutions, REC709 is used.
In most cases, the Auto setting determines the correct color space to use. If it does not,
you can force the PlasmaWall to use a specific color space. Choose one of the following:
• REC709 sets the color space matrix to that defined in ITU-R BT.709.
• REC601 sets the color space matrix to that defined in ITU-R BT.601.
• RGB-PC uses RGB color space and sets black at 0,0,0 RGB and white at
255,255,255 RGB, assuming an 8-bit image.
• RGB-Video uses RGB color space and sets black at 16,16,16 RGB and white at
235,235,235, assuming an 8-bit image, to correspond to the luminance values defined
in digital component standards.
Triggers: Select Triggers from the Service menu to configure the 12-volt trigger outputs.
You can assign one or more trigger outputs to each aspect ratio. Those triggers are then
activated by selecting that aspect ratio.
Miscellaneous: Select Miscellaneous from the Service menu to set the following options:

which controls how long the menus remain on-screen after selecting them. Select from
5 to 60 seconds, in one-second increments. Or, set the timer to 0 (disabled) if you want
the menus to remain on-screen indefinitely.
• OSD Messages: When you select a new aspect ratio, input source or memory preset,
the DHD Controller briefly displays an on-screen message confirming your new
selection. To prevent the display of these messages, select OSD Messages from the
Miscellaneous menu to and set it to Off.
• Blank Screen Color: Select Blank Screen Color from the Miscellaneous menu to
select the color that appears when no incoming signal is present. The range is from 0
to 255 inclusive for each color component (red, green and blue).
• Sidebar Color: Select Sidebar Color from the Miscellaneous menu to change the
color of the inactive image area. The range is from 0 to 255 inclusive for each color
component (red, green and blue). The inactive image area is on either side of the active
image area when using the 4:3 aspect ratio.
• Film Mode: Use Film Mode to smooth out moving images from interlaced,
standard-definition (SD) sources. In most cases, the PlasmaWall detects the proper
“pull-down” rate and vertical frequency. However, if your source is jittery and/or tearing
you may want to enable Film Mode to ensure stable processing for that source.

• CUE (Chroma Upsampling Error) Correction: Some DVD players use MPEG
decoders that do not correctly “upsample” the 4:2:0 format chroma information on the
DVD to the 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 format required by the video encoder of the display device.
This so-called “chroma bug” sometimes causes streaky or spiky horizontal lines
running through the chroma channel. It is most noticeable in static, interlaced scenes
and on diagonal edges (especially red ones). Set CUE to On to correct this issue.
Sync Threshold: Select Sync Threshold to adjust the threshold at which negative pulses
on the component video green/luma channel are interpreted to be sync pulses.
Y
Sync Threshold adjustment is occasionally necessary when a DVD player or HDTV source
signal drops “below black” (for example, during scenes with explosions or when subtitles
are present) and causes the display device to temporarily lose sync. If the sync level from
the source is persistently too low, the display device won’t sync with the source at all.

enables a modern personal computer to know what kind of monitor is connected.
Some modern display devices provide more information via EDID than others, in the form
of “extensions.” Some computer graphics cards do recognize or properly interpret this
extended EDID information.
Select HDMI EDID Extension from the Service menu to specify whether or not the EDID

Wipe the display and remote control gently with a soft cloth. In the case of excessive dirt
buildup, dampen a soft cloth with a diluted neutral cleaning detergent and after wringing
the cloth thoroughly, wipe the component and then dry it with a dry soft cloth.
After dusting, wipe the screen gently using the supplied cleaning cloth or another soft
cloth (cotton, flannel etc.). Do not use tissue or a rough cloth. The screen surface is easily
scratched; do not rub it or hit it with a hard object.
Cleaning the Screen
If you clean the surface of the screen with a wet cloth, water droplets on the surface may
enter into the product and cause a malfunction.
PR
As a general rule, use a vacuum cleaner about once a month to clean the vents on the
rear panel of the display of dust buildup (set the vacuum cleaner to its weakest setting
when doing this). If not removed, accumulated dust can cause the internal temperature to

6. External Control
In addition to using the DHD Controller front-panel keypad or remote control unit, there
are two methods of controlling the PlasmaWall and DHD Controller externally:
• Using a serial (RS-232) link to send ASCII commands and receive responses to those
commands.
• Using discrete infrared (IR) codes to program a third-party remote control unit.
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Y
The following sections describe both of these methods.
The DHD Controller uses a simple text-based control protocol to take requests from
control devices and to provide responses to such devices. This section describes how to
send control messages over a serial link between the DHD Controller and an
automation/control system or a PC running terminal emulation software.
6.1
Serial Communications
To interface the PlasmaWall with an automation/control system or a PC running terminal
emulation software, connect it to the Display Control output of the DHD Controller as
shown in Figure 3-5. Connect your control system or PC to the RS-232 input of the DHD
Controller as shown in Figure 3-11.
RS-232 Connection and
Port Configuration
Configure the RS-232 controller or PC serial port as follows: no parity, eight (8) data bits,
one (1) stop bit and no flow control. Set the baud rate to 19200, to match that of the DHD
Controller RS-232 port.
Serial commands to the DHD Controller take the following form:
PR
• Commands are not case-sensitive.
• For a single command that takes no parameters, type the command followed by a
carriage return; for example, to set the aspect ratio to Letterbox, type
LETTERBOX <Enter>.
• For a single command that takes a parameter, type the command, a space or a
comma and the desired value followed by a carriage return; for example, to set the
brightness to -10, type BRIGHTNESS -10 <Enter> or
BRIGHTNESS,-10 <Enter>.
• You can also send a string of multiple commands on a single line, separated by
commas. For example, COMPOSITE,BRIGHTNESS 50,16:9<Enter> switches to
the Composite video input, sets the brightness to 50 and sets the aspect ratio to 16:9.
Command strings can be up to 255 characters long.
Note
Avoid combining the ON or POWER 1 commands with other commands
on a single line. After sending ON or POWER 1, allow at least five (5)
seconds for the DHD Controller to power up. If you have enabled the
ISF splash screen (refer to Splash Configure on page 52), allow 15
seconds for the DHD Controller to power up.
Once it does, it will accept and properly execute multiple serial
commands.
PlasmaWall XP Series Installation/Operation Manual
63
Serial Command Syntax
External Control
Table 6-1 lists the RS-232 command set. The “Parameter (min/max)” column shows the
valid parameter ranges, or “NA” for commands that take no parameters.
When you enter a valid command, the DHD Controller executes it and acknowledges it
with a plus sign on the command line (+ >). When you enter an invalid command – one
that is misspelled or followed by values outside the valid range for that command – the
DHD Controller ignores it and returns a minus sign (- >).

The following serial commands are meant to emulate buttons on the remote control or DHD Controller front panel. Each button has its own serial command, so effectively it is as if you were using
the IR remote only you’ll be doing so via serial commands. These commands provide active OSD
responses just like the IR remote.

Using Discrete IR
Codes
The DHD Controller accepts commands in the form of IR signals that conform to the
Phillips RC5 protocol. Each DHD Controller remote control button has an RC5 control
code associated with it.
You can use these codes to program a third-party, “universal” remote control unit to work
with the DHD Controller. These third-party products usually come with a computer
software application for this purpose. For more information, consult the documentation
provided with the remote control unit.
IR Command Protocol ➤
The IR control codes have the following characteristics:
• Each code consists of 14 bits:
• Two (2) start bits (always 1);
R
Y
• A toggle bit. This bit is inverted every time a key is released and pressed again. This
allows the DHD Controller to distinguish between a button that remains down or is
pressed repeatedly.
A
• Five (5) address bits. The default address is 17 (binary 10001). To change it, select
Remote Control from the Service menu and follow the steps given on page 54.
• Six (6) data bits.
IN
• The carrier frequency is 36 kHz, with the modulated pulses having a 25% duty cycle.
• Commands are sent at a maximum rate of 9 Hz.
IM
For example, here is the RC5 control code for the ON button on the DHD Controller
remote control unit (assuming the default address is used):
