Setting up the Projector
There are a number of factors to consider when determining where to set up the projector,
including the size and shape of your screen, the location of your power outlets, and the distance
between the projector and the rest of your equipment. But here are some general guidelines.
NOTE: To ensure adequate cable access, do not place the
projector within 6 inches (0.15 m) of a wall or other object.
Position the projector on a flat surface (either on a table or ceiling mounted) at a right angle to the
screen.
The projector should be within 10 feet (3 m) of your power source and within 6 feet (1.8 m) of
your video source(s), unless good quality extension cables or baluns are to be used.
When installing the projector on the ceiling, refer to the installation guide that comes with the
Ceiling Mount Kit for more information. Knoll recommends use of the mount shipped with the
projector or the deluxe swivel Knoll CM26 ceiling mount. The addition of a CM20+6 extension bar
lowers the projector 6” per bar as required. The CM25EX is an adjustable extender that can lower
the projector 6.75” to 11” (17-28 cm). The ceiling mount kit may be sold separately.
Position the projector the desired distance from the screen.
The distance from the lens of the projector to the screen, the zoom setting, and the video format
determine the size of the projected image.
Projector Positioning
The projected image becomes larger as the distance between the unit and screen increases.
The manual zoom allows the distance from the screen to be within a minimum and maximum
range. See the chart on the next page for details. The example below defines the screen height,
width, diagonal, offset, etc. Note the bottom of the image starts about below the lens center with a
horizontally or flat mounted projector.

Anamorphic Lens
Please note the HD410 and HDP420 projector are designed for use with 16:9
screens. It also has a built in scaler for use with 2.35:1 screens. To display
images at the highest definition possible in 2.35:1 or cinemascope (most major
movies are filmed in 2.35:1) an anamorphic lens is required. We recommend the
Panamorph brand, which has fixed, movable and motorized anamorphic lens for
use with the HDP410 and HDP420.
Choosing the aspect ratio
Aspect ratio is the ratio of the image width to
image height. HDTV and most DVDs are 16:9,
which is the default for this projector. When in
4:3 mode the projector places black bars on
both sides of the image. Native mode centers
the image and turns off the internal scaler so
that any resolution larger than the native
projector resolution is cropped on the edges.
Letterbox expands the image to fill the screen.
What you plan to project will also help you
choose between 4:3 and 16:9. For example,
most TV shows are 4:3, while most movies are
16:9. If you have a 16:9 screen, then you should
select an aspect ratio of 16:9 for anamorphic
movies and HDTV, and Native for 4:3 content. If
you have a 4:3 screen you should still use 16:9
for anamorphic movies or HDTV, but you also
have the option of using 4:3, Native, or Natural
Wide for 4:3 content. Keep in mind that
anamorphic movies only appear correctly if the
DVD player is set to output to a 16:9 television.
Natural Wide stretches a 4:3 image to fill the
entire 16:9 screen. The center two-thirds of the
image is unchanged; the edges of the image are
stretched.

Composite RCA Component video
The first step for connecting video is determining what type of output connectors your video
Component RCA device has. If there is more than one output, select the one with the highest
quality. The best quality ranking, with 1 being the highest, is:
1. M1-DA/DVI or HDMI (both are digital inputs).
With a M1-DA to HDMI adaptor the HDP420 has two HDMI inputs.
2. Component /SCART RGB video (RCAs)
3. S-video
4. Composite Video (RCA)
If your device has a VGA connector, you can use the M1-DA/DVI connector for a high-quality
image. Many PC game systems have VGA connectors.
Connecting a video device
You can connect video devices such as VCRs, DVD players, camcorders, digital cameras, video
game consoles, HDTV receivers, and TV tuners to the projector. Connect the audio from your
video device to your stereo system to get sound. You can connect the projector to most video
devices that can output video.
You cannot directly connect the coaxial cable that enters your house from a cable or
satellite company; the signal must pass through a tuner first. Examples of tuners are digital
cable boxes, VCRs, digital video recorders, and satellite TV boxes. Basically, any device that can
change channels is considered a tuner.
A composite video cable is provided with your projector so you can quickly and easily connect a
video source to the projector and see the amazing image that is displayed. Once you have
determined a more permanent location for your projector, we recommend purchasing higher
quality cables in the proper length to get the best image from your particular video equipment.

Composite (RCA) video connection
Plug the composite video cable’s yellow connector into the video-out connector on the video
device. Plug the other yellow connector into the yellow Composite connector on the projector.
S-video connection
If your video device uses a round, four-prong S-video connector, plug the S-video cable into the
S-video connector on your video device and into the S-video connector on the projector.
Component (RCA) connection
If your device uses component connectors, plug a component video cable with red, green, and
blue RCA connectors into the source device’s component connectors and the Component
connectors on the projector.
SCART RGB connection
SCART (from Syndicat des Constructeurs d'Appareils Radiorécepteurs et Téléviseurs) is a
French-originated standard and connector for connecting audio and video equipment to display
devices. The video signal is separated into its primary components for brighter, more accurate
colors and sharper detail. You must enable this connector in the Source Enable menu to use it,
see page 20. You will also need a SCART to 4-RCA adapter to connect to your SCART device.
Digital connections
The M1-DA/DVI and HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connectors are digital and yield
the highest quality image. It is common for these signals to be encrypted with HDCP (high-band
width digital-content protection). Your new projector ships standard with decryption codes so you
can enjoy these high quality, all digital images.
This projector uses the M1-DA connector, which has the following advantages:
• allows connection to a digital DVI source
• allows connection to a component source
• allows connection to an analog computer source
• carries a USB control signal, which allows you to easily update your projector’s software as
enhancements become available
• has output pins that can power accessories
HDMI 1.3 connection
HDMI is a standard, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. HDMI provides an interface
between sources, such as set-top boxes, DVD players, and receivers and your projector. Plug an
HDMI cable into the video-out connector on the video device and into the HDMI connector on
the projector. To display HDMI 1.3 with its deep color and 30-bit detail, a HDMI 1.3 source is
needed. Please note the HDP410 and HDP420 have no audio capabilities at all.
DVI connection
If your video device uses a DVI connector, plug the DVI end of an M1-DA cable into the video-out
connector on the video device. This connector may be labeled “To Monitor” on the video device.
Plug the M1-DA end of the cable into the M1-DA/DVI connector on the projector.
Note that the projector has no audio capabilities, so audio signals transferred through HDMI
will not be audible.

Computer connections
You can connect a computer’s VGA connector to the M1-DA/DVI input on the projector using an
M1-A cable.
RS-232 connections
You can control the projector from an LCD control panel or computer by connecting an RS-232
cable to the projector’s Serial control connector.

Shutting down the projector
Power Save
The projector also has a Power Save feature that automatically turns the lamp off after no active
sources are detected and no user interaction with the projector is performed for 20 minutes. By
default, this feature is on. See page 21.
Sleep Timer
The projector also has a sleep timer feature that automatically turns the projector off after four
hours. See page 21.
Turning off the projector
Press the Power button on the remote or keypad to turn the projector off. The lamp turns off and
the LED blinks green for one minute while the fans continue to run to cool the lamp. While the
LED is blinking green, the projector does not accept any user input. Once the cooling process is
complete, the LED lights solid green and you can turn the projector back on, if desired.
NOTE: Once the projector has been turned off, you must wait for one minute before turning the
projector on again. This allows the lamp to properly cool and extend the lamp life up to 3000
hours). The LED light is solid green when the cooling process is complete.
NOTE: The biggest cause of early lamp failure is not allowing the lamp to cool properly, either
from power failures or disconnecting power to the projector before the fan can cool the lamp
properly.
Troubleshooting your setup
If your image appears correctly on the screen, skip to the next section. If it does not, troubleshoot
the setup. The LED on top of the projector indicates the state of the projector and can
help you troubleshoot.
The status indicator on the top of the projector can help you diagnose any problems the projector

Flesh Tone Correction: this modifies colors to make
the skin complexion better.
Film Mode: controls de-interlacing and is On by default.
When checked, it assumes the incoming signal is film
material and optimizes the image accordingly.
Sharpness: (video sources only) changes the clarity
of the edges of a video image. Select a sharpness setting.

Color Space: this option applies to computer and
component video sources. It allows you to select a
color space that has been specifically tuned for the
input signal. When Auto is selected, the projector
automatically determines the standard. To choose
a different setting, turn off Auto, then choose RGB
for computer sources, choose either REC709 or REC601
for component video sources.
Color space
Color Temperature
Color Temperature: changes the intensity of the colors.
Select a value. Native means an uncorrected/unchanged
color temperature. Other values change the white point
of the colors. 6500K is generally used for film content
and 9300K is used for TV video.
Color Control
Color Control: allows you to individually adjust the
gain and offset of the red, green, and blue colors.
These advanced controls have the same effect as
contrast and brightness, but each controls a single color only.
Video Standard: when it is set to Auto, the projector
attempts to automatically pick the video standard based
on the input signal it receives. (The video standard options
may vary depending on your region of the world.) If the
projector is unable to detect the correct standard, the
colors may not look right or the image may appear “torn.”
If this happens, manually select a video standard by
selecting NTSC, PAL, or SECAM from the Video Standard
menu.
Overscan: removes noise around the edges of the video
image. Select Zoom to remove the outer 3 percent of the
image and scale the image back up to its original
size. Select Crop to remove the outer 3 percent of the
image without rescaling the image.
Noise Reduction: adjusts signal noise reduction.
Choose Enable then adjust the level. The software
determines the differences between successive image
frames and averages the changes out to reduce the noise.
Settings menu
Sources: allows programming of source buttons,
enables autosource, and enables the SCART RGB
source. When Autosource is selected, the Source
Enable feature indicates which sources the projector
attempts to lock onto. You can use the Source Enable
feature to eliminate certain sources from this
search, which will speed the search. By default,
the check boxes for all sources are checked except
SCART RGB. Uncheck a source box to eliminate
it from the search.

When Autosource is not checked, the projector defaults to Component initially, then defaults to
whatever the last active source was when the projector was powered down. To display another
source, you must manually select one by pressing the Source button on the remote or keypad.
This cycles through all the sources that are selected in the Source Enable menu.
The Source 1, 2, and 3 menus in the Sources menu allow
you to assign a source to the Source 1, 2, and 3 buttons
on the remote. The Source 4 menu selection would
apply to the Custom key if that option is chosen in the
Custom key menu, see page 22.
Sources
Source Enable
To use the SCART RGB source, you must first select
it in the Source Enable menu (the projector cannot
automatically detect this source). Enabling
SCART will disable Component and Composite
sources.
System>OSD Offset: System>OSD Offset: allows you to adjust the
position of the OSD. By default, the menus are postponed in the
upper left hand corner of the displayed image and the messages are
postponed in the lower left hand corner. Adjust the offset to move
these items more to the right and middle of the display.
Rear: reverses the image so you can project from behind a
translucent screen.
Ceiling: turns the image upside down for ceiling-mounted projection.
Auto Ceiling: uses an internal sensor to automatically turn
on ceiling mount mode if the projector is inverted.
High Power: maximizes the light output of the lamp.
Auto Power: when AutoPower is checked, the projector automatically goes into the startup state
after the projector receives power. This allows control of ceiling mounted projectors with a wall
power switch.
Display Messages: displays status messages (such as “Searching”) in the lower-left corner of
the screen.
Translucent OSD: makes the menus translucent. This prevents the image from being completely
covered by the menus while you are making image adjustments.
Sleep Timer: automatically turns off the projector after 4 hours.
Power Save: automatically turns the lamp off after no signals are detected for 20 minutes. After
10 additional minutes with no signal, the projector powers down. If an active signal is received
before the projector powers down, the image is displayed.
Startup Logo: allows you to display a blank screen
instead of the default screen at startup.
.
Blank Screen: determines what color is displayed when
you select Blank Screen in the Startup Logo menu
and when no source is displayed.

Language: allows you to select a language for the onscreen display.
• Custom key: allows you to assign a different function to the Custom
key on the remote, allowing you to quickly and easily use the effect. Highlight an effect and
press Select to choose a different one.
• Blank Screen: displays a solid blank image.
• Freeze: takes a snapshot of the projected image. If you’re watching video, the source video
continues to run but the image is frozen.
• Source Info: the default effect. It opens a window with projector and source information.
• Service Info: opens the Service info window.
• Source 4: selects source 4 (by default, Source 4 is the Composite input). This gives you four
direct source options on the remote. See page 20.
Service: To use these features, highlight them and press
Select.
Factory Reset: restores all settings to their default.
Reset Lamp Hours: resets the lamp hours used in the
Service Info menu to zero. Do this only after changing the
lamp.
Test Pattern: displays a test pattern. To display test patterns, first you must assign Blank Screen
to the Custom key (page 17), then click the Test pattern check box in the Service menu to turn
the option on, exit the menus, then press the Custom button on the remote. To select the
patterns, use the up/down arrows on the remote or keypad. To exit the test patterns press
the Custom button.
Blue Only: turns off the Red and Green
portions of the input, allowing you to properly
adjust the color balance with a SMPTE color
bar pattern.
HDMI DDC: turns off the EDID extension.
Some graphic cards cannot recognize the
projector’s EDID. Uncheck this box if you
have trouble using HDMI or DVI sources.
Service Info: provides information about the
projector’s software, serial number and lamp.
Source Info: provides information about the active source.
Service Code: only used by authorized service personnel.

Maintenance
Cleaning the lens
1 Apply a non-abrasive camera lens cleaner to a
soft, dry cloth.
• Avoid using an excessive amount of cleaner,
and don’t apply the cleaner directly to the lens.
Abrasive cleaners, solvents or other harsh
chemicals might scratch the lens.
2 Lightly wipe the cleaning cloth over the lens in a
circular motion.
Lamp hours used
Replacing the projection lamp
The lamp hour’s timer in the Service Infomenu counts the
number of hours the lamp has been in use. Twenty hours
before the lamp life expires a message appears on the
screen at startup indicating that you should change the
lamp. The LED on the top of the projector also blinks red
twice to indicate that the lamp should be changed. Use only
a replacement lamp with the same type and rating as the
original lamp. Lamps can be purchased direct from Knoll or
the dealer that sold the projector.
wait 60 minutes
turn off and unplug the projector
1 Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord.
If ceiling mounted, disconnect all cables and
detach the projector from the ceiling mount.
2 Wait 60 minutes to allow the projector to
cool thoroughly.
3. Turn the projector upside down on a
soft cloth so that the lamp door is
facing you. Remove the base or ceiling
mount plate, if attached, by removing the three screws.
4.Loosen the two captive screws on the lamp door and lift it off.
5. Loosen the two captive screws that attach the lamp housing
to the projector.
6. Carefully remove the lamp housing. Dispose of the lamp in
an environmentally proper way.
WARNING:
To avoid burns, allow the projector to cool for at least 60 minutes before you replace the lamp.
Be extremely careful when removing the lamp housing. In the unlikely event that the bulb
ruptures, small glass fragments may be generated.
The lamp housing is designed to contain these fragments, but use caution when removing the
lamp housing. Before replacing the lamp, clean the lamp compartment and dispose of cleaning
materials. Make sure to wash your hands after lamp replacement. This product has a lamp, which
contains a very small amount of mercury. Dispose of it as required by local, state or federal
ordinances and regulations. For more information see www.eiae.org.

RS232 COMMAND FORMAT
All commands consist of 3 alpha characters followed by a request, all enclosed in parentheses.
The request can be a read request (indicated by a “?”) or a write request (indicated by 1 to 4
ASCII digits).
A read request format (AAA?) where
(
starts the command
AAA
denotes the command
?
denotes the read request
)
ends the command
A read command returns the range and the current setting, for example:
Function
Command
Response
Brightness
Lamp hours
(BRT?)
(LMP?)
(0-22,10)
0-9999,421)
A write request example: (AAA####) where
(
starts the command
AAA
denotes the command
####
denotes the value to be written (leading in zeros not necessary)
)
ends the command
Some commands have ranges, while others are absolute. If a number greater than the maximum
range is received, it is automatically set to the maximum number for that function. If a command
is received that is not understood, a “?” is returned. With absolute settings, “0” is off, 1-999 is on.
The one exception is the Power command, where 0 is off and 1 is on.
