4.2. Registration of projector to “ProjectorView Global+”
The procedures to register projectors vary among the foregoing connection examples.
• In connection examples 1 to 4 (where projectors are installed within the same local network), the projectors
within such network are automatically detected and registered. For details, see procedure A below.
• In connection examples 5 and 6 (where projectors are installed via a router), specify the range of the
projectors’ IP addresses and then carry out automatic projector search within the range to register projectors.
For details, see procedure B below.
• Up to 200 units of projectors can be registered at the maximum.
• Projectors that have just been registered by the automatic projector search aren’t belonging to any group.
When the projectors you registered aren’t displayed on the projector list on the main screen, select “All” from
the group select pull-down menu.
Procedure A - For connection examples 1 to 4 (where projectors are installed within the
same local network)

• The projectors connected to LAN are searched automatically.
• Some projectors may require you to enter the password when establishing projector connections for the first
time. If the projector password is changed, you need to enter that new password.
<Note>
• Ensure that the IP address of the PC and that of the projector are in the same network group. (The last octet
of the IP address should contain a different value.)
• Be sure to make a note of the IP addresses you set. If you forget the IP addresses, you may not be able to
detect the projectors again.
• At initial setup, DHCP or Auto IP (169.254.0.1 through 169.254.255.254) automatically assigns an IP address.
Note that a different IP address may be assigned every time you start the projectors. If a connection cannot
be established, execute “Search Projector”.
• If you change the IP address in the projector menu after the projectors have been detected, execute “Search
Projector” again.
• It is recommended that you assign an IP address of the projector to the fixed IP address.

(2)Configure settings ( through ) and check/uncheck the checkboxes for .
• Up to ten schedules can be configured, using the four rows in the table. (You can configure a schedule for
each row.)
• By default, when no schedule is entered, the table has only one row. A new row is automatically
added when you enter the items for , , , and  in the first row. In this manner, up to ten rows are
automatically added to the table.
(3)Click [Exit] to close the window.
<Note>
• Once a schedule has been configured, it is executed automatically even if the Visual PA2 window is not
displayed.
• If you send messages manually from Visual PA2 when a schedule is being executed, these messages have
higher priority over that schedule. In addition, when the settings of a schedule currently being executed are
reconfigered, the Visual PA2 window will close automatically.
• More than one schedule cannot be configured at the same time on the same day.
• The Schedule Setting will be executed while “ProjectorView Global+” is in operation.
• Depending on usage conditions, such as when there are so many projectors to control, time lapses may occur
between the start time of Visual PA2 and the start time of a schedule.
• When Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to automatically synchronize with an Internet time server, the start
time of a pre-configured schedule may not match the clock of the projector, and the schedule may not be
executed.
• When the automatic time adjustment by summer time is valid, the schedule operation may not be executed
because the time is automatically adjusted before and after switching over.

9.1. Troubleshooting
• The projector can not be recognized.
The projector may not be recognized automatically due to the setting of fire wall. In such case, the
communication of “ProjectorView Global+” should be registered as an exception to the fire wall. For the
setting of the fire wall, see the manual of the software that configures the fire wall.
• Operation by the remote controller can not be properly performed.
The operation may not be performed until the last operation has been completed. In such case, wait for a
while and perform the operation again. In addition, confirm whether the network setting such as IP address is
correct.
• Application becomes “No reply”.
Since it may take time for processing of the automatic status acquisition, the application can not be operated
during that time, and “No reply” may be displayed. Wait for a while until the processing has been ended.
• Application cannot be operated sometimes.
The application cannot be operated during the acquisition of the projector status. When the main power of the
projector is off or projectors not actually connected are registered, the projector status acquisition may take
longer time to complete because it waits until time out. In this case, you can reduce the acquisition time by
deleting unnecessary registered projectors.
• Projectors cannot be controlled. Projector status isn’t displayed.
Restart the application. If the problem persists, try “Network Initialization” in the projector menu. In that case,
you need to make settings of the projector again, because they are reset to the default values.
