Why am I unable to access the
SMTP server?
Why am I unable to receive the
test alert email even though the
projector already indicates the
test mail is already sent?
76
Using Your Projector
1 Check with your MIS or network
administrator whether the SMTP server
function is open for the projector and the IP
assigned to the projector is allowed to access
the SMTP server. The projector’s SMTP
socket port number is 25, this cannot be
changed.
2 Check if the out going SMTP server, user
name, and password are set correctly.
3 Some SMTP servers will check whether the
mail address of "From" correlates with the
"User name" and "Password". For example,
you use test@dell.com as the mail address in
"From". You should also use test@dell.com
account information for the User name and
the password to log in the SMTP server.
It could be because the SMTP server
recognized the alert mail as a spam mail or
because of the SMTP server restriction. Check
with your MIS or network administrator for
the SMTP server’s setting.

NOTE: The lamp life rating for any projector is a measure of brightness
degradation only, and is not a specification for the time it takes a lamp to fail
and cease light output. Lamp life is defined as the time it takes for more than 50
percent of a lamp sample population to have brightness decrease by
approximately 50 percent of the rated lumens for the specified lamp. The lamp
life rating is not guaranteed in any way. The actual operating life span of a
projector lamp will vary according to operating conditions and usage patterns.
Usage of a projector in stressful conditions which may include dusty
environments, under high temperatures, many hours per day and abrupt
powering-off will most likely result in a lamp’s shortened operating life span or
possible lamp failure.

Appendix: Glossary
ANSI LUMENS — A standard for measuring the brightness. It is calculated by
dividing a square meter image into nine equal rectangles, measuring the lux (or
brightness) reading at the center of each rectangle, and averaging these nine
points.
ASPECT RATIO — The most popular aspect ratio is 4:3 (4 by 3). Early television
and computer video formats are in a 4:3 aspect ratio, which means that the width
of the image is 4/3 times the height.
Brightness — The amount of light emitted from a display or projection display or
projection device. The brightness of projector is measured by ANSI lumens.
Color Temperature — The color appearance of white light. Low color temperature
implies warmer (more yellow/red) light while high color temperature implies a
colder (more blue) light. The standard unit for color temperature is Kelvin (K).
Component Video — A method of delivering quality video in a format that consists
of the luminance signal and two separate chrominance signals and are defined as
Y'Pb'Pr' for analog component and Y'Cb'Cr' for digital component. Component
video is available on DVD players.
Composite Video — A video signal that combines the luma (brightness), chroma
(color), burst (color reference), and sync (horizontal and vertical synchronizing
signals) into a signal waveform carried on a single wire pair. There are three kind of
formats, namely, NTSC, PAL and SECAM.
Compressed Resolution — If the input images are of higher resolution than the
native resolution of the projector, the resulting image will be scaled to fit the
native resolution of the projector. The nature of compression in a digital device
means that some image content is lost.
Contrast Ratio — Range of light and dark values in a picture, or the ratio between
their maximum and minimum values. There are two methods used by the
projection industry to measure the ratio:
1 Full On/Off — measures the ratio of the light output of an all white image (full
on) and the light output of an all black (full off) image.
2 ANSI — measures a pattern of 16 alternating black and white rectangles. The
average light output from the white rectangles is divided by the average light
output of the black rectangles to determine the ANSI contrast ratio.
Full On/Off contrast is always a larger number than ANSI contrast for the same
projector.
94
Glossary
dB — decibel — A unit used to express relative difference in power or intensity,
usually between two acoustic or electric signals, equal to ten times the common
logarithm of the ratio of the two levels.
Diagonal Screen — A method of measuring the size of a screen or a projected
image. It measures from one corner to the opposite corner. A 9FT high, 12FT
wide, screen has a diagonal of 15FT. This document assumes that the diagonal
dimensions are for the traditional 4:3 ratio of a computer image as per the example
above.
DHCP — Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol — A network protocol that
enables a server to automatically assign a TCP/IP address to a device.
DLP® — Digital Light Processing™ — Reflective display technology developed by
Texas Instruments, using small manipulated mirrors. Light passes through a color
filter is sent to the DLP mirrors which arrange the RGB colors into a picture
projected onto screen, also known as DMD.
DMD — Digital Micro-Mirror Device — Each DMD consists of thousands of
tilting, microscopic aluminum alloy mirrors mounted on a hidden yoke.
DNS — Domain Name System — An internet service that translates domain
names into IP addresses.
Focal Length — The distance from the surface of a lens to its focal point.
Frequency — It is the rate of repetition in cycles per seconds of electrical signals.
Measured in Hz (Hertz).
HDCP — High-Bandwidth Digital-Content Protection — A specification
developed by Intel™ Corporation to protect digital entertainment across digital
interface, such as DVI, HDMI.
HDMI — High-Definition Multimedia Interface — HDMI carries both
uncompressed high definition video along with digital audio and device control
data in a single connector.
Hz (Hertz) — Unit of frequency.
IEEE802.11 — A set of standards for wireless local are network (WLAN)
communication. 802.11b/g uses the 2.4GHz band.
Keystone Correction — Device that will correct an image of the distortion (usually
a wide-top narrow-bottom effect) of a projected image caused by improper
projector to screen angle.
Maximum Distance — The distance from a screen the projector can be to cast an
image that is usable (bright enough) in a fully darkened room.
Maximum Image Size — The largest image a projector can throw in a darkened
room. This is usually limited by focal range of the optics.

Minimum Distance — The closest position that a projector can focus an image
onto a screen.
NTSC — National Television Standards Committee. North American standard for
video and broadcasting, with a video format of 525 lines at 30 frames per second.
PAL — Phase Alternating Line. A European broadcast standard for video and
broadcasting, with a video format of 625 lines at 25 frames per second.
Reverse Image — Feature that allows you to flip the image horizontally. When
used in a normal forward projection environment text, graphics, etc. are
backwards. Reverse image is used for rear projection.
RGB — Red, Green, Blue — typically used to describe a monitor that requires
separate signals for each of the three colors.
S-Video — A video transmission standard that uses a 4-pin mini-DIN connector to
send video information on two signal wires called luminance (brightness, Y) and
chrominance (color, C). S-Video is also referred to as Y/C.
SECAM — A French and international broadcast standard for video and
broadcasting, closely related to PAL but with a different method of sending color
information.
SSID — Service Set Identifiers — A name used to identify the particular wireless
LAN to which a user wants to connect.
SVGA — Super Video Graphics Array — 800 x 600 pixels count.
SXGA — Super Extended Graphics Array, — 1280 x 1024 pixels count.
UXGA — Ultra Extended Graphics Array — 1600 x 1200 pixels count.
VGA — Video Graphics Array — 640 x 480 pixels count.
WEP — Wired Equivalent Privacy — This is a method for encrypting
communication data. The encryption key is created and notified only to the
communicating user, so the communication data cannot be decrypted by a third
party.
XGA — Extended Video Graphics Array — 1024 x 768 pixels count.
WXGA — Wide Extended Graphics Array — 1280 x 800 pixels count.
Zoom Lens — Lens with a variable focal length that allows operator to move the
view in or out making the image smaller or larger.
Zoom Lens Ratio — Is the ratio between the smallest and largest image a lens can
projector from a fixed distance. For example, a 1.4:1 zoom lens ratio means that a
10 foot image without zoom would be a 14 foot image with full zoom.
