Congratulations On Your Purchase Of The LVPX30U Data Projector
Make sure your box contains everything listed below. If any
pieces are missing, contact your dealer.
Please save the original box and packing materials in case
you ever need to ship the unit.
The number of accessories is indicated in brackets.
The LVP-X30U is one of the most spectacular data projectors
available today. The unit enables you to project precise images up
to 200 inches across (measured diagonally) from your PC or
Macintosh computer (desktop or notebook), VCR, document camera, laser disc player, DVD player, etc.
For remote control

No. 770843400
The unit can be placed on a tabletop or cart. The unit can also be
used to project images from behind the screen. *
* Consult your dealer for more information.

The other main features you’ll enjoy
• Compatible with following various color systems:
– NTSC (U.S. and Canada standard)
– PAL (Western Europe standard)
– SECAM (France and Eastern Europe standard)
– NTSC4.43 (Middle East standard)
• Superior brightness of 800 ANSI lumens, small size, and
weighing only about 1.4 kilograms/3.1 lbs.
Using TI’s Digital Mirror Device (DMD) and our own optical
design we have developed a geometric effect that increases the
light usage efficiency. By increasing the light usage efficiency we
can better reproduce the three basic colors (RGB) required for
color reproduction on a single DMD. This means superior brightness, smaller size, and lighter weight.
• Sharp, clear images
There is no RGB color separation, and the spaces between the
individual pixels are not noticeable. That means sharp and clear
reproduction of small characters and figures. Take a closer look
and notice the difference in quality!
• Outstanding sharp, clear, 3D like images with vivid colors
when reproducing DVD video and other high picture-quality
data/video sources
Accurate gray scale reproduction makes for more natural image
displays. DVD and other high quality image sources bring out the
true image display quality of the unit.
• Screen not distorted to a trapezoid (keystoning) when projecting to the height of the line of vision
Because the projection position is already set to the height of the
line of vision, there is no keystoning effect.
Even when projecting above or under the height of the line of
vision, image distortion (if any) can be adjusted using the keystone correction function.
• Fully compatible with true XGA; support for SXGA using
advanced intelligent compression technology
The advanced intelligent compression technology enables these
projectors to present clear compression SXGA images without any
line omission.
• A remote control that can operate the PC or Macintosh
The supplied remote control both operates the unit and acts as a
wireless mouse control to operate the PC or Macintosh connected to the unit.
• The compact and easy to carry cabinet with its contemporary
design complements any office, board room, or auditorium.

lamp
The rated lamp life is about 1,000 hours. The rated lamp life is the average
life of the lamps produced and tested (under the test conditions of our
company) for a long term, however, it may become shorter depending on
the conditions of usage.
After the lamp has been operating for 1000 hours or longer, the STATUS
indicator on the control panel will light and the “LAMP USAGE” icon
which shows hours of total lamp usage will be displayed on the screen.
When this happens, turn off the unit and replace the lamp cartridge with a
new one. The unit will not turn on after 1100 hours. (It will go off if it is in
use.)
CAUTION
• DO NOT TOUCH THE LAMP immediately after it has been
used. It will be extremely hot. Allow at least one hour for the
lamp to cool before handling.
• DO NOT LOOSEN ANY SCREWS except for those mentioned in the instructions below. There is danger of electric
