1. Overview
1-1. Introduction
The projector is remotely controllable over RS-232C as well as Ethernet. It is useful for setting up the
projector away from the operator.
This protocol manual describes the specifications such as packet format and procedures for controlling the
projector.
In the following sections below, the term “CONTROLLER” is used as a device which controls the projector. CONTROLLER can be a PC or other specific device that is able to handle RS-232C or Ethernet.
Although most of commands are available for both RS-232C and Ethernet, some commands are dedicated
to Ethernet.
* Ethernet is a registered trademark of Xerox Corporation.

Description
CONTROLLER
_
Command initiator such as PCs.
PROJECTOR
_

SDAP
Simple Display Advertisement Protocol
Protocol name for advertising the projector status over
Ethernet.
SDCP
Simple Display Control Protocol
Protocol name for controlling projector over Ethernet.
PJLink
_
Protocol name for controlling projector over Ethernet.
DDDP
Dynamic Device Discovery Protocol
AMX Device Discovery is the protocol name by AMX
to enable to configure the AMX control system and
other intended devices.
1-3. Protocol Stack Structure
The protocol stack structure diagram is shown below. Though the stack is drawn for RS-232C and Ethernet separately, the following portions are common.

Because of traditional portions for Ethernet general layer, “TCP/IP”, “UDP/IP”, “HTTP” and “SNMP”
are out of scope in this document.
SDCP specific command is described in the section 4-3-2.
SDAP and SDCP (PJ Talk) are SONY original protocol stack, which are described in the sections 4-3-1

VPL Series PROTOCOL MANUAL
3-3. Communication Procedure
3-3-1. Outline of Communication
All communication between CONTROLLER (PC, etc.) and DEVICE (PROJECTOR) is performed by the
command block format. Communication is started by the issue of a command at CONTROLLER and
ended when the return data is sent to CONTROLLER after DEVICE receives the command.
CONTROLLER is prohibited from sending several commands at one time. This means that after CONTROLLER sends one command, it cannot send other commands until DEVICE returns the return data.
DEVICE sends the return data after processing the command. The time from when CONTROLLER sends
the command until the return data is returned differs according to the contents of the command.
n
When SIRCS direct command is sent, return data is not sent.
3-4. Communication Rules
. When sending a command from CONTROLLER, the return data from PROJECTOR should be received
first before sending the next command. Even if the next command is sent before receiving the return
data, since PROJECTOR will not be able to receive that command, it does not return a response to
CONTROLLER. Consequently, no error code is also sent.
For detail of the waiting times for PROJECTOR to return the return data after CONTROLLER sends
the command, refer to the section 3-5.
. When a communication error occurs, PROJECTOR ignores the data received until now, and set into the
reception standby state.
. For undefined commands or commands determined as invalid by PROJECTOR, PROJECTOR will
send the “NAK” return data to CONTROLLER .
. Take note that when data is written when the input signal of PROJECTOR is unstable, that data (value)
will not be incorporated.
. When INDEX specified SIRCS direct command is transmitted, leave an interval of 45 msec until the
next transmission. (Do not return the return data (ACK, NAK) when the SIRCS direct command is
received.)
. For POWER ON/OFF/TOGGLE of the SIRCS direct command, send the command twice when this
unit is in standby mode (Low) state.
3-5. Approximate Return Waiting Times
The await-return time is approx. 30 to 1000 msec.
n
This is the case, unless the communications are interfered anyway.

Communication sequence is shown below. SDCP commands must be issued by CONTROLLER and
PROJECTOR responses to it. On the other hand, SDAP commands are sent by PROJECTOR and have no
response from CONTROLLER.

The command is executed if it’s valid.
Then, the receive command is sent to
the CONTROLLER.

Fig. 4-1 Command Sequence
It is prohibited that CONTROLLER send another command before receiving the response to the previous
command. Since PROJECTOR executes the command before sending the return data, CONTROLLER
must wait a while before receiving the response. The waiting time depends on not only the commands but
also network traffic.
