• Depending on the input signal, setting items for aspect ratio or some other setting items cannot
be set in some cases, or changing the aspect ratio setting may have no effect.
• A part of the image may be displayed in black, depending on the setting item.

This may not be optimum depending on the input signal. In this case set manually according
to the connected equipment.
When “Standby Mode” is set to “Low,” the network and network control function cannot be
operated while the projector is in standby mode.
This varies depending on the “Lamp Mode” setting.
As the lamp is dimmed gradually, you may not notice any change in brightness. You might only
notice that the lamp has dimmed when its brightness is restored after there is a change in input
signal.
This mode does not work for about three minutes after the lamp lights. A change in signal may
not be detected depending on the input image. The lamp may become brighter at intervals
during lamp dimming. However, this is not a malfunction. If With No Input is set, it takes
priority.
Select “Off” to avoid entering standby mode when there is no input signal.
Does not function when “Type A USB”, “Type B USB” or “Network” is selected as the input.
In this case, it becomes equivalent to “Standard.”

Projection Distance
The projection distance is the distance between the front of the lens and the surface of the
projected image. The following describes the projection distance and height from the center of
the lens to edge of screen by each projected screen size. Height H is the height from the bottom
of the projected image (top for ceiling mount) to A (determined by drawing a perpendicular line
from the center of the lens to projected image surface).

Others
LEGAL THEORY RELATED TO THE
SOFTWARE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT
LIMITED TO, ANY DAMAGES ARISING
OUT OF LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF
REVENUE, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF
USE OF THE SOFTWARE OR ANY
ASSOCIATED HARDWARE, DOWN
TIME AND USER’S TIME, EVEN IF ANY
OF THEM HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF
THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES. IN ANY CASE, EACH AND
ALL OF THEIR AGGREGATE
LIABILITY UNDER ANY PROVISION
OF THIS EULA SHALL BE LIMITED TO
THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID FOR
THE PRODUCT. SOME JURISDICTIONS
DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE
ABOVE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION
MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
SONY, its affiliates, partners and agents will
not intentionally use Information to
personally identify the owner or user of the
SOFTWARE without your knowledge or
consent. Any use of Information will be in
accordance with the privacy policies of
SONY or such third party. Please contact
applicable contact address of each area or
country for SONY’s current privacy policy.

privacy policies relating to personally
identifiable and other information you
provide when you use or access third party
software or services.

transferred to SONY, its affiliates or agents
which are located in countries outside of
your country of residence. Data protection
and information privacy laws in certain
END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT
89
countries may not offer the same level of
protection as your country of residence and
you may have fewer legal rights in relation to
Information processed and stored in, or
transferred to, such countries. SONY will
use reasonable efforts to take appropriate
technical and organizational steps to prevent
unauthorized access to or disclosure of
Information, but does not warrant it will
eliminate all risk of misuse of such
Information.

From time to time, SONY or the THIRDPARTY SUPPLIERS may automatically
update or otherwise modify the
SOFTWARE, including, but not limited to,
for purposes of enhancement of security
functions, error correction and improvement

with SONY’s or third parties’ servers, or
otherwise. Such updates or modifications
may delete or change the nature of features
or other aspects of the SOFTWARE,
including, but not limited to, functions you
may rely upon. You acknowledge and agree
that such activities may occur at SONY’s
sole discretion and that SONY may
condition continued use of the SOFTWARE
upon your complete installation or
acceptance of such update or modifications.
Any updates/modifications shall be deemed
to be, and shall constitute part of, the
SOFTWARE for purposes of this EULA. By
acceptance of this EULA, you consent to
such update/modification.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT, WAIVER,
SEVERABILITY
This EULA and SONY’s privacy policy,
each as amended and modified from time to
time, together constitute the entire
agreement between you and SONY with
respect to the SOFTWARE. The failure of
SONY to exercise or enforce any right or
provision of this EULA shall not constitute a
waiver of such right or provision. If any part
of this EULA is held invalid, illegal, or
unenforceable, that provision shall be
enforced to the maximum extent permissible
so as to maintain the intent of this EULA,
and the other parts will remain in full force
and effect.
