Colour mode function
Brightness Control
The following six preset colour modes are provided so that you can easily
obtain the optimum images simply by selecting the image quality.
In addition, if projecting onto blackboards rather than projection screens in
places such as schools, you can select the "Blackboard" setting to allow
images to be projected in their natural tints.
Troublesome colour adjustments can thus be avoided.
p.44, p.52, p.55
The brightness of the lamp can be set to one of two settings. If projecting
images in a dark room or onto a small screen and the images are too bright,
change the setting to "Low".
In addition, when the setting is changed to "Low", the amount of power
consumed and noise produced are reduced and the operating life of the lamp
can be extended.
• Reduction in power consumption of approximately 20%
• Reduction in operating noise of approximately 10%
• Approximately 1.5 times longer lamp life

Features of the Projector
Compact and lightweight while producing beautiful,
crisp images
The projector has a compact body with a footprint the size of an A4 page (24
(D) × 31.5 (W) × 8.7 (H) cm (9.45 (D) × 12.4 (W) × 3.43 (H) in.) and is light
in weight (approximately 2.9 kg. (6.4 lbs)), making it easy to carry.
Clear and attractive images can be obtained even in bright locations.
Password protect function assists administration
and theft prevention
If the password Protect function is employed, a password can be used to
limit operation of the projector and changing of settings. This means that the
projector cannot be used if it is taken without authorisation, and thus serves
p.27
as a theft-prevention feature.

projection (see "Freeze" on
p.47) and zooming in on important areas of
an image (see "E-Zoom" on
p.49). In addition, the remote control can be
used to move the pointer around on the computer screen during projection
(see "Wireless Mouse Function" on

TIP
• Do not allow sunlight or light from fluorescent lamps to shine
directly onto the projector's remote control light-receiving areas,
otherwise it may interfere with the reception of signals from the
remote control.
• If delays in the responsiveness of the remote control occur or if it
does not operate after it has been used for some time, it probably
means that the battery is getting flat. If this happens, replace the
battery with a new one.
p.84
• When not using the remote control, place it into the remote control
holder underneath the projector so that it does not get lost.

A port used to input analogue video signals.
The temperature of an object which is emitting light. If the absolute colour temperature is high, the colours tend to take on a
bluish tinge. If the absolute colour temperature is lower, the colours tend to take on a reddish tinge.
The ratio between an image's length and its height. HDTV images have an aspect ratio of 16:9 and appear elongated. The
aspect ratio for standard images is 4:3.
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and colour signals separated, in order to provide better image quality.
In high-definition TV (HDTV), it refers to images which consist of three independent signals: Y (luminance signal), and Pb
and Pr (colour difference signals).
Video signals which have the video brightness signals and colour signals mixed together. The type of signals commonly used
by household video equipment (NTSC, PAL and SECAM formats).
The carrier signal Y (luminance signal) and chroma (colour) signal which are contained in the colour bar are overlapped to
form a single signal.
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an image can be increased or decreased in order to make text and
graphics stand out more clearly, or to make them appear softer. Adjusting this particular property of an image is called
"contrast adjustment".
This is the process by which the projector's lamp is cooled down after it has become hot through use. Cool-down is carried out
automatically when the [Power] button is pressed to turn off the power. Do not disconnect the power cable while cool-down is
in progress, otherwise the cool-down process will not work properly. If the cool-down period is not allowed to finish normally,
the projector's lamp and internal components will remain at high temperatures, and this may shorten the operating life of the
lamp or cause problems with the operation of the projector.
A sound format developed by Dolby Laboratories. Normal stereo is a 2-channel format which uses two speakers. Dolby
Digital is a 6-channel (5.1-channel) system which adds to this a centre speaker two rear speakers and a sub-woofer.
A utility software program that allows the projector to be connected to a computer so that the computer can be used to control
the projector. For details on acquiring the software and for instructions on using the software and compatible projector
models, please visit the Web site http://www.epson.co.uk/support/download/projector.htm.

The light-emitting element of a display maintains the same luminosity and colour for an extremely short time. Because of this,
the image must be scanned many times per second in order to refresh the light-emitting element. The number of refresh
operations per second is called the "refresh rate", and is expressed in hertz (Hz).
This function is used to project computer images that have a resolution more than or less than the projector's panel resolution
to be projected so that they fill the whole of the projection area.
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television. It refers to standard television systems which do not satisfy the conditions
for High-Definition Television.
A device consisting of a projector case with a hole in it that a commercially-available theft-prevention cable can be passed
through in order to secure the device to a table or pillar. This projector is compatible with the Microsaver Security System
manufactured by Kensington.
In this mode, wide-screen images in 16:9 mode are compressed in the horizontal direction so that they are stored on the
recording medium as 4:3 images.
When these images are played back by the projector in squeeze mode, they are restored to their original 16:9 format.
An international standard for colour intervals that was formulated so that colours which are reproduced by video equipment
can be handled easily by computer operating systems (OS) and the Internet.
A type of video signal with a resolution of 800 (horizontal) × 600 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible
computers.
A video signal which has the luminance component and colour component separated in order to provide better image quality.
It refers to images which consist of two independent signals: Y (luminance signal), and C (colour signal).
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1280 (horizontal) × 1024 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible
computers.
The signals output from computers and RGB video equipment have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not
match this frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good quality. The process of matching the phases of these signals
(the relative position of the crests and troughs in the signal) is called "synchronisation". If the signals are not synchronized,
problems such as flickering, blurriness and horizontal interference can occur.
The signals output from computers and RGB video equipment have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not
match this frequency, the resulting images will not be of a good quality. The process of matching the frequency of these
signals (the number of crests in the signal) is called "tracking". If tracking is not carried out correctly, wide vertical stripes will
appear in the projected images.
An abbreviation for Universal Serial Bus. USB is an interface for connecting personal computers to peripheral devices which
only support relatively low data transmission speeds.
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1600 (horizontal) × 1200 (vertical) dots which is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible

List of ESC/VP21 Commands
Command List
Communication Protocol
When a power ON command is sent to the projector, the power for the
projector turns on. When the projector is in a command ready state, it
returns the "3Ah" (:) code. Furthermore, when command processing is
complete, the projector also returns a ":" code.
The ":" code status can be used to determine whether the projector is ready
or busy. If command processing terminates with an error, an error message
is output and then the ":" code is sent.
