Using the Constant Brightness Function to Maintain the Brightness Output
The brightness output of a projector may decline after thousands of hours of usage. In certain applications, such as
mapping, a periodical adjustment to multiple projectors is required to ensure the overall image result. Vivitek’s Constant
Brightness feature is designed to reduce the need for installers to regularly recalibrate the projectors. A built-in light sensor
inside the projector monitors the level of light so that when a reduction in light is detected, the projector will regulate
dynamically the electricity power to increase the light output to your pre-defined brightness level, and thus maintaining a
constant level of brightness. To use this function, follow the steps below:
1. Select SETUP > Light Power > Light Power. Change it to Custom Power Level with a value under 100%. For example:
90% or 85%. The reduced power percentage will be used to later regulate the brightness when the Constant
Brightness function is enabled.

Note:
 After a long period of time, when a power boost reaches its limit of maximum power, the Constant
Brightness function will no longer increase the electrical power to the laser light source. In this case,
please turn off the Constant Brightness function. You can also readjust all the projectors to a new level
of brightness with a lower Customer Power Level percentage, so that the Constant Brightness function
will work again.

When connecting to the equipment, use the correct signal cable to connect to the signal source and ensure that the cable
is securely connected. Fasten the nut on the joint and connect the signal source equipment to the projector according to
the image below.
Connecting a Computer
Connect the PC signal to be projected to the projector through the DVI-D, HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA or RGBHV (BNC)
cable. If the signal to be input is a VGA signal, connect the VGA cable to the external display to simultaneously monitor the
projected content.
Connecting a Video Device
Connect video equipment to the input port of the projector via the DVI-D, HDMI and Component Video Connector.
34
UM98001117EN00
DU9800Z DLP Projector - User Manual
Connecting to a Control Equipment
The projector has the following control port for connecting to the control equipment:
HDBaseT/LAN (Network control): The projector supports network control. LAN and HDBaseT share the same port. If
only network control is used, you can connect the LAN on the projector to PC or through the local network. Refer to the
Remote Communication Manual for detailed information.
RS-232 (RS-232 control): The projector can be remote-controlled by connecting the projector to a PC or control system
through the standard 9-pin serial cable (Straight Through Serial Cable). Refer to the Remote Communication Manual for
detailed information.
Wired remote control: If the projector cannot receive the IR signal from the remote control due to the overly long
distance or obstacles, you can connect the cable to the IR remote control or the external IR transmitter (optional) via the
WIRE input port to expand the working range of the remote control.
3D Sync Out/In: Connect to 3D IR sync signal transmitter or device.
Note:
 When the terminal of the remote control cable is inserted to the wired control terminal of the projector, the
projector will automatically switch to the wired control mode and cannot be controlled through the IR signal
of the remote control. Disconnect the wired control terminal on the projector if you want to control through
the IR signal of the remote control.
 If the wired remote control cable or the external IR transmitter is inserted to the incorrect port such as
Trigger, the remote control or the IR transmitter may be damaged. Make sure whether the port is correct.

UM98001117EN00
DU9800Z DLP Projector - User Manual
Connecting an HDBaseT Transmitter
The projector has a built-in HDBaseT receiver. With an HDBaseT Transmitter (optional), the video, RS-232 and LAN
signals can be sent to the projector via a single RJ-45 cable. If the HDBaseT Transmitter you purchased supports the
input and output of the IR remote control, the control signals from the IR remote control can be sent to the DU9800Z
projector via the RJ-45 cable.
Note:
 The projector supports the video signal, R-232, IR remote control and the reception of the network control
signals but do not support Power over Ethernet (PoE).
 The baud rate will be switched to 9600 automatically. If RS232 command is sent via external HDBaseT
transmitter.
 If the command is sent via the HDBaseT transmitter, the longest transmission distance is 100 meters. If the
transmission distance exceeds 100 meters, there is a possibility that the projection may be interrupted, or
the control signal cannot be sent.
 Use the RJ-45 Cat5e or above cable and avoid entwining. Entwining may cause damage or signal
transmission interference, thus reducing the transmission distance and degrading the image quality.
