adjustment. In such cases, set the keystone adjustment
values in the range where the image is displayed
without noise.
• When the keystone adjustment is carried out, the
image may not be displayed correctly because of
the type of input signal.

About color temperature
There are different kinds of white color. Color
temperature is a way to show the differences in
white. White of which temperature is low appears
reddish. When the color temperature rises, white
appears bluish. This projector adjusts this color
temperature by changing the values of contrast
blue and red.
To rise the color temperature:
Increase the CONTRAST B (blue) and decrease the
CONTRAST R (red).
To reduce the color temperature:
Decrease the CONTRAST B (blue) and increase
the CONTRAST R (red).
This projector adjusts the format of the video signal
supplied from the computer. However, sometimes
images are not projected correctly owing to the type
of the computer used. When the image from the
