In general, minimize or eliminate light sources directed at the screen. Contrast
ratio in your images will be noticeably reduced if light directly strikes the screen,
such as when a shaft of light from a window or floodlight falls on the image.
Images may then appear washed out and less vibrant.
Ambient Light
Throw distance is the distance measured from the front of the projector to the
screen. This is an important calculation in any projector installation as it
determines whether or not you have enough room to install your projector with
a desired screen size and if your image will be the right size for your screen.
Throw Distance
A
RY
You can quickly estimate the throw distance by taking the width of the screen
and multiplying it by the lens throw ratio; see Figure 3-2. The result of this
calculation tells you roughly how far back the projector should be positioned
from the screen in order to project a focused image large enough to fill the
screen.

Proper placement of the projector relative to the screen will yield a rectangular,
perfectly-centered image that completely fills the screen.
Ideally, the projector should be positioned perpendicular to the screen and in
such a way that the lens center is aligned with either the top or bottom edge of
the screen area, and centered horizontally. See Figure 3-3.

Vertical Lens Shift: The PD8130/PD8150 provides up to 25% of upward vertical
lens shift and up to 60% of downward vertical lens shift. For example, with a 100
x 56 inch (1.78:1) screen, you can shift the image up to 14.00 inches
(0.36 meters) above or 33.60 inches (0.85 meters) below the screen center.
Horizontal Lens Shift (PD8150 Only): The PD8150 provides up to 7.5% of horizontal
lens shift left or right. For example, with a 100 x 56 inch (1.78:1) screen, you can
shift the image up to 7.50 inches (0.19 meters) left or right of the screen center.

Other considerations and tips that can help improve your installation:
• Keep the ambient temperature constant and below 35°C (95°F). Keep the
projector away from heating and/or air conditioning vents. Changes in
temperature may cause drifts in the projector circuitry, which may affect
performance.
PR
EL

Other Considerations ➤
• Keep the projector away from devices that radiate electromagnetic energy
such as motors and transformers. Common sources of these include slide
projectors, speakers, power amplifiers and elevators.

Installation
There are several methods for mounting the projector. Depending on your
chosen installation, one method may be more suitable than another.
3.4
Mounting the
PD8130/PD8150
In typical front and rear screen installations, the projector can be mounted to a
secure and level surface such as a table or cart. Carts are useful when moving
a projector during a presentation or from site to site. If possible, lock the wheels
when it’s in position to prevent it from being moved during a presentation.
Floor Mounting (Upright)
For fixed installations, and for those that want the projector out of sight or have
a limited space for projector and audience, you can invert the PD8130/PD8150
and suspend it from the ceiling using a specially-designed ceiling mount fixture.
Ceiling Mounting
(Inverted)
Use only the Planar-approved ceiling mount kit designed for
your projector. Install the mount kit according to the
instructions provided with it.
A
RY
Note
IN
If the screen is significantly higher or lower than the projector, you can also tilt
the projector at a slight angle. In a ceiling installation, you do this by adjusting
the ceiling mount.
PR
EL

Overscan: Some television programs are produced based on the assumption
that older television sets may not display the outer edges of the broadcast
picture area. Overscan effectively hides these inactive, outer edges of the
image. Choose one of the following:
• Off: This setting leaves the image as-is.
• Crop: This setting adds a mask at the left and right edges of the source active
image equal to 3% of the displayed horizontal resolution, and at the top and
bottom edges equal to 3% of the displayed vertical resolution.
• Zoom: This setting adds a factor to the scaling of the source active image so

Color Space: Select Color Space from the Advanced menu to choose the color
space of the source signal for HDMI, RGB, and component connections.
• The default setting, Auto, functions as follows:
• HDMI: If the Auxiliary Video Information (AVI) infoframe contains color
space and/or range data, the PD8130/PD8150 uses that information.
Otherwise, for RGB sources, the PD8130/PD8150 uses the RGB-Video color
space. For component SDTV and EDTV resolutions, REC601 is used. For
other component video resolutions, REC709 is used.
• RGB: If Hsync or Vsync signals are present, the PD8130/PD8150 uses the
RGB-PC color space. Otherwise, REC601 is used for SDTV and EDTV sources,
and REC709 for all other sources.
• Component: For SDTV and EDTV resolutions, the PD8130/PD8150 uses the
REC601 color space. For all other resolutions REC709 is used.
In most cases, the Auto setting determines the correct color space to use. If it
does not, you can force the PD8130/PD8150 to use a specific color space.
Choose one of the following:
• REC709 sets the color space matrix to that defined in ITU-R BT.709.
• REC601 sets the color space matrix to that defined in ITU-R BT.601.
• RGB-PC uses RGB color space and sets black at 0,0,0 RGB and white at
255,255,255 RGB, assuming an 8-bit image.

Video Standard: Select Video Standard from the Advanced menu to specify
the color system for composite video or S-Video input signals.
Different countries use different formats for video signals. Select the appropriate
Video Standard for your region:
• Auto: The color systems are automatically identified and the format is set
accordingly.

world, typically with a 50Hz frame rate.
• SECAM: This is a standard format used mainly in France and Russia.

while maintaining good details for blacks and whites.
PR
EL

If excess ambient light washes out the image and it becomes difficult or
impossible to see details in dark areas, lower the gamma setting to
compensate. This improves contrast while maintaining good details for blacks.
Conversely, if the image is washed out and unnatural, with excessive detail in
black areas, increase the setting.
• CRT sets the gamma to 2.5.
• Film sets the gamma to 2.2.
• Video is similar to Film gamma but differs in dark areas of the image to
correspond to the function that video cameras use to create images.
• Bright sets the gamma to 2.0.
• Graphics should only be used for computer presentations that require
increased brightness at the cost of grayscale accuracy.
Color Temperature: Color temperature defines the “color of gray;” that is,
adjusts the 75% white point to various color points.
To choose a color temperature setting, select Color Temperature from the
Advanced menu. Then, press
or
to select 5500K, 6500K, 7500K, 9300K or
Native. The default setting, 6500K, is appropriate for most situations. Higher
settings produce a “bluer” picture; lower ones impart a reddish hue to the
image. Select Native to disable white point adjustment of the source signal.

If PIP is active, the PD8130/PD8150 converts the PIP source
frame rate to the same frame rate as the main source.
• The default setting, Auto, frame locks to the main source if it has a vertical
refresh rate of between 48 and 62Hz. Vertical refresh rates of from 24 to 31Hz

Each setting defines the precise hue of each primary (red, green and blue) and
secondary (yellow, cyan and magenta) color component used to generate
the millions of colors produced in displays. Changing either or both of these
numbers changes the hue of the color and relocates the “triangle” for possible
colors. For example, changing the x/y coordinates for red moves the color
closer to either orange or violet, which in turn affects all displayed colors having
a red component.
• Auto automatically chooses the appropriate color gamut:
• SMPTE C for NTSC, 480i and 480p sources.
• EBU for PAL, SECAM, 576i and 576p sources.
• REC709 for all other sources.
• REC709 chooses the REC709 color gamut.
• Select SMPTE-C to choose the SMPTE-C color gamut.

• Gain: Use the Gain controls to correct color imbalances in the bright areas of
the image. A good way to do this is to use a test pattern consisting mostly of
solid white areas, such as an 80 IRE “window” pattern. If the white areas
contain traces of red, green or blue, decrease the Gain for that color.
• Offset: Use the Offset controls in the RGB Adjust sub-menu to correct color
imbalances in the dark areas of the image. A good way to do this is to use a
test pattern consisting mostly of dark gray areas, such as a 30 IRE “window”
pattern. If the gray areas contain traces of red, green or blue, decrease the
Offset for that color.
The Gain controls increase or decrease the full-scale input range; the Offset
controls shift the entire range, resulting in a change in brightness.
Generally, higher Gain settings reduce the image contrast;
higher Offset settings reduce the image brightness.

Operation
• Phase (RGB or Component sources): This control adjusts the phase of the
pixel sampling clock relative to the incoming signal. Adjust the phase when
an RGB or Component image still shows shimmer or “noise” after Tracking has
been optimized.
Tip
Adjust the Phase after adjusting Tracking (see below). If
some shimmer from a video or HDTV source persists, use the
Noise Reduction controls (described on page 44) to
remove high-frequency noise from the signal.
For best results, use a good test pattern such as a smooth gray consisting of a
clear pattern of black and white pixels, or a similar “half on, half off” graphic
image. Adjust the slidebar until the image stabilizes and each pixel is clearly
defined. You may notice that you can stabilize the image at more than one
point. Use either setting in such cases.
A
RY
• Tracking (RGB or Component sources): Tracking determines the frequency of
the pixel sampling clock, indicated by the number of incoming pixels per line,
so that all pixels generated by a particular source are sampled.
IN
Steady flickering or several soft vertical stripes or bands across the entire
image indicates poor pixel tracking. Proper pixel tracking helps ensure that
the image quality is consistent across the screen, that aspect ratio is
maintained and that pixel phase (see above) can be optimized.
PR
EL
IM
• Sync Level (Component sources only): Select Sync Level to adjust the
voltage level of the PD8130/PD8150 Sync signal detection circuitry.
Sync Level adjustment is occasionally necessary when a DVD player or HDTV
source signal drops “below black” (for example, during scenes with
explosions or when subtitles are present) and causes the projector to
temporarily lose sync. If the Sync Level from the source is persistently too low,
the projector won’t sync with the source at all.
The range is from 50 to 256 millivolts (mV) inclusive. The default setting is
240 mV and should rarely require adjustment.

Operations Commands ➤
IR Code
Operations commands allow more flexible and direct control of the projector.
The syntax for operations commands is as follows:
op <operation> <command>[CR]
(Precede <operation> and <command> with a space.)
The command type can be one of 5 functions:
Operations Control Commands
Function
Command
Action on unit
Set
= <value>
Makes the unit take that value.
Get
?
Asks what the current value is.
Increment
+
Adds 1 to the current value.
Decrement
-
Subtracts 1 from the current value.
(none)
Performs an action such as a reset.
Execute
70
Planar PD8130/PD8150 Installation/Operation Manual
Serial Communications
Table 6-2 lists the valid operations commands. For all but Execute functions, the
response from the projector is the command and “= <value>” where <value> is
the current value or “NA” if the value is not available. For Execute functions the
response is the same command. All responses are in UPPERCASE.
Some operations command examples:
Input: op bright ? [CR]
Response: OP BRIGHT = 100 [CR]
Input: op bright + [CR]
Response: OP BRIGHT = 101 [CR]
Input: op bright = 127 [CR]
Response: OP BRIGHT = 127 [CR]
A
RY
Input: op bright - [CR]
Response: OP BRIGHT = 126 [CR]
Input: op resync [CR]
Input: op sharp.mode = 1 [CR]
PR
EL
IM
Response: OP SHARP.MODE = 1 [CR]
IN
Response: OP RESYNC [CR]
Input: op sharp.simple = 50 [CR]
Response: OP SHARP.SIMPLE = NA [CR]
Input: op sharp.simple ? [CR]
Response: OP SHARP.SIMPLE = NA [CR]
The last three commands show what happens when a control is grayed out. In
this case, the sharpness mode was set to advanced (value = 1) and then the
simple sharpness slider was attempted to be adjusted and queried. The
response was “NA” or not available.
