Choosing the Color Mode
You can change the Color Mode to automatically adjust brightness, contrast, and color,
letting you quickly optimize the projected image for various lighting environments. You can
also select a different color mode for each input source—which is useful if you view different
types of images from different sources. (For example, you might set the HDMI 1 source to
Living Room if it’s usually used for watching movies in the daytime with the blinds closed,
and the PC source to Dynamic for playing video games with the blinds open.)
Select the image source you want to adjust, then press the Color Mode button on the remote
control. Choose from these settings:
■
Auto for automatically optimized color settings
based on the current lighting environment.
Note: Selecting the Rear or Ceiling projection settings
will disable the Auto Color Mode.
■
Cinema for viewing movies in a dimly lit room.
■
Dynamic for projecting the brightest picture
available.
■
Living Room for watching television programs during the day.
■
Natural for projecting natural, accurate colors in a dimly lit room.
■
3D Dynamic for projecting the brightest 3D picture available (only available when the
projector is in 3D Mode).

Adjusting the Picture Quality
Before fine-tuning the image using these adjustments, make sure you have already selected the
best Color Mode for your picture and viewing environment, as described on page 33. Then
use the settings in this section to finish adjusting the picture to your liking.
Most image quality settings are saved independently for each input source (Video, HDMI,
Component, PC) and color mode. After you finish adjusting the settings for one input source,
switch to the other input sources you’ll be using and make any necessary adjustments.
Input Brightness Settings
If the signal from connected equipment is weak and images appear dark, you can adjust the
Brightness and Contrast settings. You can adjust brightness and contrast for each image
source and color mode.
The Brightness setting controls how much light is produced by the projector, and the
Contrast setting adjusts the difference between the bright and dark areas of the projected
image. The other settings in this section control how the projector interprets the light and
dark areas of the picture.
Note: If Color Mode is set to Auto, these settings will not be available.
■
Brightness
Image > Brightness
Adjust the brightness so it’s suitable for your viewing conditions. For example, if you’re
projecting in a brightly lit room or onto an especially large screen, you may need to
increase the brightness. Decrease the brightness for dark rooms or small screens; this also
reduces power consumption and fan noise, and helps to prolong the life of the lamp.
■
Contrast
Image > Contrast
This setting adjusts the difference between bright and dark areas.
■
Auto Iris
Image > Auto Iris
When this setting is on, the light output is automatically adjusted according to the
brightness of the image. Select either Normal or High Speed to indicate how quickly
you would like the projector to respond to changes in the brightness of the image. The
setting is stored separately for each image source and color mode.

than few seconds. Do not engage in any potentially hazardous activity (such as driving a vehicle or
operating machinery) until your symptoms have completely gone away. If the symptoms persist,
discontinue use and do not resume stereoscopic 3D viewing without discussing your symptoms
with a health care provider/physician.
■
Some viewers may experience a seizure or blackout when exposed to flashing images or lights
contained in certain 3D content. Anyone who has a history of seizures, loss of awareness,
symptoms linked to an epileptic condition, or has a family history of epilepsy, should contact a
health care provider before using the 3D function. It is recommended that all viewers take regular
breaks while watching 3D video images or playing stereoscopic 3D games. The suggested breaks
are, at least 5 to 15 minutes after every 30 to 60 minutes of stereoscopic 3D content viewing.*
*Based on the guidelines issued by the 3D Consortium revised December 10, 2008. The length
and frequency of necessary breaks will vary from person to person. If you experience any
discomfort, you should immediately stop watching the 3D video images or playing stereoscopic
3D games until the discomfort ends; consult a heath care provider/physician if necessary.

Due to the possible impact on vision development, viewers of 3D video images should be age 6 or
older. Children and teenagers may be more susceptible to health issues associated with viewing in
3D and should be closely supervised to avoid prolonged viewing without rest.
■
Watching the screen while sitting too close for an extended period of time may cause eye strain.
Consult your projector manual to determine the ideal viewing distance.
■
Viewing 3D content may cause dizziness and disorientation for some viewers. Therefore, to avoid
injury do not place your projector or screen near open stairwells, balconies, or wires, and do not sit
near objects that could be broken if accidentally hit.
