Introduction
General
The Silicon Optix Image AnyPlaceTM (see Figure 1) is a high performance video and graphics image scaler
with geometry correction capability. Image AnyPlace combines best-in-class image processing with unique
image geometry correction features to provide the A/V professional and amateur enthusiast with
unprecedented flexibility in projector setup and location.
Figure 1: Silicon Optix Image AnyPlace Video/Graphics Scaler
Innovative Image AnyPlace keystone correction capability (up to 40 degrees horizontally and 30 degrees
vertically) allows users to position projectors virtually anywhere in the room (on a coffee table, ceiling,
bookshelf, and so on). Image AnyPlace also compensates for the optical distortion effects of throw ratio and
lens offset of the projector. In addition, with the Image AnyPlace, the Image AnyPlace BEX, and the eWarp
Designer options images can be projected into cylindrical, spherical, or irregularly shaped objects. The
IA-100-BEX, which is the Image AnyPlace with the Edge Blending option, can be used to blend the edges of
a projected image in order to create a larger projected image.
The Image AnyPlace scaler offers an extensive set of selectable input signals. Never before has the ability to
process so many different types of video signals - RGB graphics (from analog or DVI sources), SDTV (in all
popular signal formats: composite, S-Video and component in NTSC, PAL, and SECAM), and analog HDTV
- been integrated in one small package.

Installation
eWARP Designer Option
The Image AnyPlace scaler in its standard configuration comes pre-loaded with factory-installed, distortion
correcting warp maps that perform keystone correction when projecting onto flat surfaces. In order to correct
for distortion that results from projecting onto non-flat surfaces (that is, curved or cylindrical screens, domed
ceilings, and so on), custom application-specific warp maps must be generated and downloaded into the unit.
The PC-based software tool that allows users to develop and load these custom maps is called eWARP
Designer. This tool is described in a separate User Guide (see Silicon Optix Image AnyPlace eWARP Designer
User Guide, Document Number MKT-0014-GUD-1.003). The eWARP Designer is included on the CD
shipped with every Image AnyPlace unit. While the eWARP Designer will be received by all customers
purchasing Image AnyPlace, a special software encryption key is required before custom maps can be
downloaded to the unit for use. Only those customers who have purchased this eWARP Designer option will
be able to access this functionality.
If you purchased the eWARP Designer option at the time you purchased your Image AnyPlace scaler, your
unit will already be enabled for curved screen correction. IA-100_EX is the name of the Image AnyPlace
option with pre-loaded key.
If, after having purchased the basic unit, you decide to upgrad and purchase the encryption key, contact your
dealer to arrange for the delivery of a software key for enabling this feature.
Rack-Mount Installation Kit
An optional Rack-Mount Adapter Kit is available for users wishing to use the Image AnyPlace unit in a rackmount configuration. The order code/part number for purchasing this kit is IA-100_RM.
Setting up Image AnyPlace
To set up your Image AnyPlace unit, follow the steps below:
1. Connect the Image AnyPlace unit to the video input source.
2. Connect the Image AnyPlace unit to the projector.
3. To power up the unit, on the Image AnyPlace unit, press the Power switch located on the rear of the
unit, close to the power cord. The Power switch may be left on in normal operation. The Standby button
on the front pannel may be used to put the unit into a low-power state.
4. Select the output resolution by placing the unit in stand-by mode and selecting the connect resolution
using the arrow keys on the right side of the front panel.
5. Select the appropriate input from the remote control or the Image AnyPlace front pannel buttons.
6. Select the Image AnyPlace keystone settings and ensure that the keystone settings are adjusted for zero
degrees H and V.
7. Power on the projector according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
8. On the projector, turn off any keystone correction that might be active by following the manufacturer’s
instructions.
9. If the project has an AUTOSET or AUTODETECT feature, disable this function. These projector
modes may cause image distortion if a keystone-corrected image is applied to the projector input.

10. Depending upon the specific input and output resolutions, select the proper Aspect Ratio from the
Image AnyPlace OSD main screen.
11. Determine the Lens Shift value of the projector. Image AnyPlace supports lens shift values of 0 and 0.5.
This information may be obtained from the projector manufacturer’s specification sheet, or by
performing the following test:
a. Place the projector on a horizontal surface and project onto a vertical surface. Rotate the projector from
side to side and observe the bottom of the projected image.
b. If the bottom of the image remains flat (see Figure 5), the lens shift value is 0.5.
c. If the bottom of the image begins to show trapezoidal (keystone) distortion (see Figure 6), the lens shift
value is 0.
12. Select the Geometry submenu from the Image AnyPlace OSD, then select the Lens Shift option. Enter
the correct value as determined from Step 11 above.
13. Determine the approximate throw ratio value of the projector. The throw ratio is defined as the ratio of
the distance from the center of the lens to the projector screen (D) divided by the width of the screen
(W). Therefore, the throw ratio is T = D/W (see Figure 7). For example, if the screen is 100 inches wide,
and the distance to the screen is 150 inches, the throw ratio T is: T = 150/100 = 1.5
14. Select the correct Throw Ratio from the Image Anyplace Keystone settings. The throw ratio setting is
adjusted by moving the bottom slider on the OSD.
15. Adjust the H and V Keystone sliders until you obtain a regular rectangular image. It may be necessary
to re-adjust the Throw Ratio value using the slider bar if you cannot obtain a keystone-corrected image
by following the above steps.
16. If you are unable to obtain a keystone-corrected image, see the troubleshooting guide in the
Troubleshooting chapter.

Image AnyPlace Interface
Image Anyplace Operational Modes
The Image AnyPlace unit has two modes of operation: Operate and Setup. You can select either of these
modes of operation via the front panel interface or the RS232 control interface.
Operate Mode
In Operate mode, the video output signals are activated and you may control all the Image AnyPlace
parameters (except for Setup restricted parameters) from the front panel, IR remote control, or serial
communication commands. In Operate mode, all controls may be used simultaneously (that is, you may open
a menu with a front panel button and make a selection using the IR remote control, and so on). The Front panel
and IR remote commands invoke the OSD, and user feedback is provided for all actions. In Operate mode,
the Image AnyPlace 16 x 2 front panel display indicates the following information:
(SELECTED INPUT CONNECTOR) = (Input Signal)
OUT=(Output Resolution)
The front panel and IR remote control are designed to be identical in control function; that is, each button on
the IR remote control corresponds directly in function to a button on the front panel. You will find a complete
list of front panel and IR remote controls and OSD operations in the On-Screen Display chapter. When
controlling Image AnyPlace by serial communications, all actions are performed without invoking the OSD.
A complete description of the serial communications protocol is provided in the RS232/422/485 Protocol
chapter.
Image AnyPlace powers-up in Operate mode. All operational parameters are retained from the previous
session. A Factory Reset returns all parameters to the default state (described in detail in the On-Screen
Display chapter), except for the input signal. The input signal most recently used is retained as the power-up
input signal.
Setup Mode
In Setup mode the Image AnyPlace is in a low-power state. The output signals are de-activated and the IR
remote controls (except for activate Operate mode) are disabled. The Setup mode is provided so that critical
operational controls (such as selected output resolution) are not disturbed by inadvertent IR commands. The
setup mode is indicated by the following message appearing on the bottom line of the Image AnyPlace 16 x
2 front panel display:

Image AnyPlace unit will respond. Address ‘00’ is reserved as a broadcast
address. All Image AnyPlace units in a system will respond to commands sent
to address ‘00’. Please note that although you can only create a multiple unit
Image AnyPlace system if you are using the RS422 or RS485 communications
schemes, you must still ensure that you correctly set the Serial Communication
Box Address to agree with your control software.
RS422 Disabled/Enabled
Enables the serial communications for RS422/485 operation. If RS422 is
disabled, the port is configured for RS232.
Cycles through all of the available Image AnyPlace modes (see Table 3). In
addition to control by the front panel, the Image AnyPlace Output Mode may
also be controlled by serial communications (see the RS232/422/485
Protocol chapter for serial communications protocols information).
OUT= XXX ##Hz
No lockout/IR lockout/KB lockout/IR Allows the user to disable the front panel (KB) and /or the infrared (IR) remote

inputs.
GenLock can be enabled as a Slave or a Master or can be disabled.
When enabled as a Master, the IA-100 drives the output timeline vertical sync
out of the composite sync #2 connector (COMP2).
When enabled as a Slave, the IA-100 expects to receive an external vertical
sync one the composite sync #1 connector (COMP1).
GenLock
When in Slave mode, the IA-100 will buffer the external sync from COMP1
and drive it on the COMP2 connector (allowing units to be daisy chained).
When disbled, the IA-100 accepts SDTV composite inputs on the COMP1 and
COMP2 connectors.
Fornt Panel Display Brightness
The brightness is adjusted by pressing the Graphics button (to increase) or the
HD Video button (to decrease).

On-Screen Display
OSD Menu Structure
The On-Screen Display (OSD) menu is the primary way of controlling and selecting functions in the Image
AnyPlace system. The Image AnyPlace system is initially in a factory default state. Many Image AnyPlace
control parameters can be saved to Image AnyPlace memory and retained for use in later sessions. Performing
a factory reset erases these saved parameters and returns the system to the default state.
Two slightly different OSD menus are invoked, depending upon whether the currently selected Output
Resolution Aspect Ratio is 16:9 or 4:3. The biggest difference between them has to do with the way that aspect
ratios are treated (see the Aspect Ratio section later in this chapter).
OSD Menu Controls
The OSD can be invoked two ways, as follows: using the Front Panel Buttons or using the IR remote. The
Front Panel and IR Remote have the same buttons. The buttons are:
•
On/StandBy (Setup)
•
Graphics/Zoom Out/ Throw (+)
•
HD Video/Zoom IN/Throw (-)
•
SD Video/ H Zoom Out
•

AnyPlace Keystone/ V Zoom Out
•
Picture Settings/H Zoom In
•
Menu
•
Up Arrow
•
Down Arrow
•
Right Arrow
•
Left Arrow
•
Enter ( ß)
When pressed, the On/StandBy (Setup) buttons will either place the IA-100 in the Standby/Setup mode or the
On mode as described in the Image AnyPlace Interface chapter.
The Graphics/Zoom Out/ Throw (+) button has three functions depending upon the mode the IA-100 is in.
This button is a fast key to the OSD input selection menu in all modes, except for the magnify and AnyPlace
keystone mode. This button is used to increment the throw ratio in AnyPlace Keystone mode and to Zoom out

Chapter 5
Loading Firmware
Introduction
This chapter describes the firmware update procedure for the Image AnyPlace system using the PC Loader.
PC Loader is the software program that controls the firmware update process—you can obtain by e-mail new
features that become available and you can download them onto Image AnyPlace. The download procedure
takes about 5 minutes and prevents you from having to return your unit to the factory for simple upgrades.
The PC Loader program provides an easy and fast way to update (download) firmware into CPU
FLASH/RAM memory, via a RS232 communication line, in the Image AnyPlace systems equipped with
BootLoader firmware. During the download process, you are informed about all verifications performed by
firmware and error messages are returned.
Loading HEX Files
To load HEX files follow the procedure below:
1. Link your PC to the Image AnyPlace system using a serial communication cable; be sure to use the
proper COM port number on the PC (see Figure 8). Turn off the IA-100 power using the power switch
mounted on the back of the unit.
RS-232 interface
Computer
Figure 8: RS232 Connection
2. Run PCLoader.exe from the current directory—it will search for .cfg and .dev files only in the current
directory. Be sure that if you create an icon for this application, you have the start directory with the same
string as the .exe file path. Usually, this is a default setting provided by Windows.
3. In most cases, the default options should be correct for proper operation. However, if there are any
difficulties with the download procedure, then verify that all the configuration options are correct.
4. Choose Connect from the Communication menu to open the COM port.

Loading Firmware
5. Power on the IA-100.
6. To load a HEX file for the firmware update, choose Open from the File menu . Open the file that was
provided for the new firmware update.
7. Begin the download process of the firmware update using the Load Hex button. Note the messages
provided by the firmware during the loading process in the Info field.
8. When the download process has completed (and there were no errors), power-off the Image AnyPlace
box, and power it back on to begin normal operation.
NOTE: The errors that might be reported by the application during the startup have have two possible
reasons, as follows: the current working directory is not the directory where PCLoader.exe and
PCLoader.cfg are located; or, the PCLoader.cfg file is corrupt, so the best solution is to delete this
file, run PCLoader.exe again (the application builds a new .cfg file) and set up communication and
device settings, which will be saved in the new .cfg file.
The above process should be all you need to load files. The remainder of this chapter is provided for advanced
users only.

CPU Memory Page
•
Destination Memory Page: Set the destination 1 Mbyte CPU memory page for HEX file. This term should
not be confused with the CPU scrollable window for memory paging. Page 1 represents the memory
range 00000H-FFFFFH and page 2 represents the memory range 100000H-1FFFFFH.
Due to Am186 ER, the CPU cannot access over 1 MB, this paging mechanism provides support for usage on
the Image AnyPlace board of bigger CPU Flash memory than 1 MB.
•
Boot Sector Protection: If checked, avoids erasing and data downloading into boot sector. To protect the
Bootloader program against accidental overwriting, this option is always set automatically when the
program is started and after every loading process.
•
Send Configure Device Command: If checked, this sends a configuration command to the firmware
before loading a HEX file. This option is useful if the default settings of the firmware are different from
those of the current hardware board.
NOTE: Usually, the Loading Settings are: Only involved sectors, Boot Sector Protection, and Send
Configure Device Command.
Convert BIN File in Intel HEX File Format
This option is very useful for converting FPGA code binary files, but can be used for any kind of binary data.
The PC Loader generates a new file in Intel HEX format with the same name as the BIN file, but with the
extension HEX. To use this option, choose Convert BIN to HEX from the Tools menu and fill in the fields in
the dialog box illustrated in Figure 13. This option is not required for the Image AnyPlace normal operation.

RS232/422/485 Interface
You can control Image AnyPlace via the Image AnyPlace RS232/422/485 interfaces or the Serial Control
Panel. The interfaces and baud rate are configured in the Standby mode menu. The
RS232/422/485 interfaces connector pins are listed in Table 14.

The Image AnyPlace Serial Control Panel allows the user to send individual commands to an Image AnyPlace
box. It also provides the capability to run script files that the user creates.
To create a script file, the user has to enter RS232 commands and scripting commands in a Notepad file. There
are five scripting commands that can be used: DM, DS, LOOP/LEND, and HALT. The DM command delays
the command execution in tens of milliseconds; DS delays the command execution in seconds; LOOP
executes a group of commands (bounded by the LEND) command n times. When n is set to 0, the loop
becomes endless; the HALT command pauses execution and waits for the user response.
The following is a list of script commands that can be used:
‘;’ — the semicolon indicates a comment
DM n — delay in tens of milliseconds
DS n — delay in seconds

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting Guide
Before consulting Silicon Optix Technical Support for Image Anyplace, perform the following simple checks
listed in Table 68.
Table 68: Troubleshooting Guide
Problem
No power (no
illumination of LCD
screen or front panel
buttons)
Probable Cause
Solution
Unit not plugged into
main power
Ensure that the Image AnyPlace power plug is connected to a live
power outlet.
Power switch set to
OFF
Ensure that the main power switch on the back of the unit is set to the
ON position.
Unit is in Standby
mode
Press the ONStandby button on the front of the unit. The front panel
buttons should become illuminated.
Ensure that the input source is operational and connected to the Image
AnyPlace unit
Ensure that the input source is selected in the Input signals menu of the
Image AnyPlace OSD. The selected input source should be highlighted
gray.
No picture output
No input source
If you're using a PC laptop, press the function key that lets you display
on an external monitor. This key is often labeled with an icon, however,
it may also be labeled CRT/LCD. You may have to hold down a
Function key while pressing it. Check your laptop's manual or online
help for details.
Depending upon your computer's video card, you might need to use the
Display utility in the Control Panel to make sure that both the LCD
screen and external monitor port are enabled. See your computer's
documentation or online help for details.

Troubleshooting
Table 68: Troubleshooting Guide
Problem
The projected image
cannot be properly
keystone corrected
Probable Cause
Solution
Angle of the projector
relative to the
projection screen
exceeds the maximum
correction ability of
Image AnyPlace
Ensure that the angle of the projector relative to the projection screen
does not exceed the maximum correction ability of the Image AnyPlace
unit. The maximum correction angles are ±40 degrees horizontal and
±30 degrees vertical.
Projector has internal
keystone correction
enabled
Check the projector to ensure that there is no internal keystone
correction enabled.
Projector has an
AUTOSET or
AUTODETECT
feature enabled
If the projector has an AUTOSET or AUTODETECT feature, disable
this function. These projector modes may cause image distortion if a
keystone-corrected image is applied to the projector input.
Incorrect Lens Shift
values
Select the Geometry submenu in the Image AnyPlace OSD and then
the Lens Shift submenu. Change the lens shift value, and then adjust
the H and V keystone values.
Incorrect Y Cb and Cr If the input video signal is in a component format, ensure that the Y Cb
inputs
and Cr inputs are properly connected.
Color of the output
image is incorrect
The projected image
is upside down or a
reversed image is
displayed
The bottom/top or
left/right portions of
the projected image
are cut off. The entire
image is not
displayed.
The image is too
small, too large, or
compressed.
Incorrect color
temperature and
gamma settings
Check that the color temperature and gamma settings in the Picture
menu are correct for the input image.
Incorrect color and
tint settings
Check that the color and tint in the Picture menu are correct for the
input image.
Image AnyPlace
needs to be reset
If none of the above solutions correct the image, perform a factory reset
on the Image AnyPlace unit from the main OSD menu.
Projector image flip
enabled

Appendix A
Edge Blending Option
The Image AnyPlace scaler, with the Edge Blending option (IA-100-BEX), provides support for Edge
Blending. The Edge Blending capability is only available on the HD/SD input connectors.
The IA-100-BEX provides the following capabilities:
•
Edge "feathering"
•
Color Balancing
•
Crop and Zoom
•
GenLock
The Edge Blending is controlled using the AnyPlace Edge Blending Control Panel, an application that runs
on a PC and communicates with the IA-100-BEX via RS232.
The AnyPlace Edge Blending Control Panel provides the following capabilities:
•
Selection of the edge to be blended
•
Selection of a Gamma curve, used to feather the selected edge
•
Adjust the length of the blended edge
•
Individually adjust the Brightness/Contrast for each color (Red, Green, Blue)
•
Disable each color
•
Image Pan and Zoom
•
Draping
•
Interfaces to Multi-Port RS232 switch (B & B Electronics Model 232X2S)
NOTE: Genlock is enabled via the front panel (in the Setup Mode). There are three Genlock modes: Master,
Slave, and Disabled. In Master mode, the IA-100 will drive a sync signal out to the COMP2
connector located on the back of the unit. This sync would be "daisy chained" to a slave unit. In Slave
mode the IA-100 will receive an external sync on the COMP2 connector and drive a buffered version
of that signal on the COMP2 connector. When Genlock is disabled, COMP1 and COMP2 connectors
become standard definition composite TV inputs.

Rotate Setup Program
The purpose of this program is to provide a setup utility for one or more Image Anyplace systems and
configure the rotation mode and options to split an image across multiple systems.
The intention is to have two (or more) monitors rotated and placed side-by-side for the display. Each monitor
is driven by its own Image Anyplace system. Each Image Anyplace system performs the crop, scale, and
rotate operation on the input image so that each monitor displays a portion of the image.
Operation

Rotate Setup Program
Number of displays: There are four rows of buttons corresponding to the number of displays being used.
Although the most common situation is likely to be three displays, the image can be split across 1 to 4 displays
as shown.
Display configuration: These buttons provide "one button" setup of the box to the desired configuration. For
example, if the unit is being setup as the left-most display of a three-display configuration, then press only
the "1" button of the 3 display row. Pressing this button sets the rotation mode in the unit, programs in all of
the appropriate configuration parameters, then the outline around the button will turn green to signal a
successful result.
NOTE: The ten buttons in the Display Configuration field are mutually exclusive. Select only the one that
is appropriate for the connected box.
Therefore, for the case with 3 displays driven by 3 Image Anyplace units, the first unit is configured by button
"1", the second by button "2", and the third by button "3".
Rotate Off: courtesy button to turn off the rotate mode.

Access Verification
Consolidation
Access verification consists of the reading of the
stored Image AnyPlace serial number and access
key number (if loaded), followed by the
execution of the decryption algorithm. If
successful, downloading proceeds; if not, the
key menu is invoked.
The Consolidate option lets you move customized
warp maps into contiguous registers so that any empty
(null) warp maps appear after the custom warp maps
(that is, there are no null warp maps stored between
custom warp maps). Analogous to defragmentation in
Windows applications.
Anamorphic Scaling
Control Interval
Refers to the use of 16x9 aspect ratio pictures in a 4x3
system. For example, anamorphic supplementary
lenses are used to change the proportions of an image
to 16x9 on the surface of a 4x3 sensor by either
extending the horizontal axis or compressing the
vertical axis. Signals from 16x9 cameras and telecines
produce an anamorphic signal which is electrically
the same as with 4x3 images but will appear
horizontally squashed if displayed at 4x3.
In general, the extent of each Control Parameter's
range is divided into one or more Control Intervals.
The alternative way of carrying 16x9 pictures within
4x3 systems is letterbox. Letterbox has the advantage
of showing the correct 16:9 aspect ratio on 4:3
displays, the vertical resolution is less than 16:9
anamorphic.
Control Parameter
A single numeric value, such as horizontal keystone
angle, pan, and tilt. The target software can generate
a different Warp Map for each valid combination of
Control Parameters and Scaling Parameters.
Control Space; Control Vector
See also: Aspect Ratio and Letterbox
The control parameters may be independently varied;
if there are three of them, each possible set of control
parameters corresponds to a point in an abstract threedimensional space. This is referred to as Control
Space and any particular set of Control Parameters is
a Control Vector.
Aspect Ratio
Control Zone
The ratio of a screen’s width to its height. For
example, 16:9 implies a screen 16 units wide by 9
units high.
A Control Zone is a portion of control space where all

intervals. The shaded box is one of 32 separate
control zones in the example.
The Control Zones are thus defined by the Control
Intervals. Within each zone, a different set of data is
used to generate Warp Maps based on the position of
the Control Vector within the Zone. Thus, a greater
number of Control Zones will allow more accurate
approximation of the desired behavior, at the expense
of increased storage requirements.

Interlaced Display
In basic terms, a video can be thought of as being
made up of numerous snapshots, called frames. The
frame rate, or the number of frames displayed each
second, is 29.97 in the United States and other NTSCbased countries. For the sake of simplicity, we can
round this number to 30 frames per second (fps). In
many European countries, PAL and SECAM video
systems display exactly 25 fps. The following

explanation is based upon 30 fps, but you can replace
the number 30 with 25 for PAL/SECAM video and
the same principles hold true.
Television, however, does not deal with video in
terms of frames. Instead, it displays a video using
half-frames, called fields. Each frame contains
exactly two fields. One field is made up of the odd
horizontal lines in a frame. This is called the odd
field or the top field since it contains the top line of
the image. The other field is made up of the even
horizontal lines in a frame. This is called the even
field or bottom field. Since there are two fields in
every frame, television actually updates the display at
60 fields per second (or 50 fields per second for
PAL/SECAM video). Each field is displayed 1/60th of
a second after the preceding field (or 1/50th of a
second for PAL/SECAM video).

Acronym for Liquid Crystal Display
Lens Horizontal Offset
Defined as the ratio C/D expressed in percent, range
-100 to 100, where:
C = the horizontal distance from the center of the
display device to the optical axis.
D = the horizontal size (width) of the display device.
Computer monitors and television screens do not
display video in the same fashion. A computer
monitor updates the image only once for each frame
of video. Because of this, both fields that make up a
video frame are shown simultaneously. Thus, a
computer monitor displays video at 30 fps. This is
called a progressive scan display.
A television, on the other hand, updates each field of
a video frame separately. Because of this, the
television must update its display twice to show a
complete frame. It first updates the odd field, and
1/60th of a second later it updates the even field. It
continues to alternate between the odd and lines 60
times each second. Thus, a television displays video
at 60 fields per second. This is called an interlaced
display.
See aso Lens Vertical Offset.
Lens Shift
Lens Shift is the measure of how far the optical axis
of the projector lens is shifted with respect to the
center of the MicroDisplay. A Lens Shift of 0.0
indicates that the optical axis of the lens is aligned
with the center of the MicroDisplay. A Lens Shift of
0.5 indicates that the optical axis of the lens is aligned
with the edge of the MicroDisplay. Only two values
(0.0 and 0.5) are supported. Most desktop projectors
have Lens Shifts of 0.5. Most ceiling mount
projectors have 0.0 or variable Lens Shifts.

With a variable zoom lens system, a new warp map
must be selected for each step in the zoom setting.
On-Screen Display
The On-Screen Display (OSD) menu is the primary
way of controlling and selecting functions in the
Image AnyPlace system. The Image AnyPlace
system is initially in a factory default state. Many
Image AnyPlace control parameters can be saved to
Image AnyPlace memory and retained for use in later
sessions. Performing a factory reset erases these
saved parameters and returns the system to the
default state.
Image AnyPlace supports two different OSDs: one
for 4:3 (1024x768) output aspect ratio, and one for
16:9 (1280x720) output aspect ratio.
PAL
Video broadcast standard - Acronym for Phase
Alternating Line. This standard was introduced in the
early 1960's and implemented in most European
countries except for France. The PAL standard
utilizes a wider channel bandwidth than NTSC which

Plasma Display
A flat-panel, non-CRT video display device. The
basic idea of a plasma display is the illumination of
tiny colored fluorescent lights to form an image.
Each pixel is made up of three fluorescent lights - a
red light, a green light and a blue light. Just like a
CRT television, the plasma display varies the
intensities of the different lights to produce a full
range of colors.
Regular Grid Generation
The method of creating a custom warp map by
dragging the four corner points of the projected
image to a make regular rectangle, then dragging the
intermediate grid points to correct any distortion of
the image.
RS232 Interface
A standard for serial data communications defined by
EIA Standard RS232 and is designed for short
distances only - up to 10 metres. It uses single-ended
signalling with a conductor per channel plus a
common ground, which is relatively cheap, easy to
arrange but susceptible to interference - hence the
distance limitation.
The Image AnyPlace RS232/422/485 interface lets
you control the Image AnyPlace box. The interface
channel is RS232C with 57600 baud, 8 bits data, 1
stop bit and no parity bit.
RS422/485 Interface
Not to be confused with 4:2:2 sampling or 422P
MPEG, this is a standard for serial data
communications defined by EIA Standard RS422. It
uses current-loop, balanced signalling with a twisted
pair of conductors per channel, two pairs for bidirectional operation. It is more costly than RS232
but has a high level of immunity to interference and
can operate over reasonably long distances - up to
300m/1000 ft.
S-Video
This function establishes the raw intensity for each
output pixel based upon its relative position on the
input space. Restated, this is the amount of input
intensity proportional to each output pixel based upon
the relative position of the output pixels on the input
space.
S-Video is one of the high quality methods of
transmitting a television signal from a device such as
a Camcorder, VCR, or a game machine
(PSX/Saturn/SNES and so on). It separates the color
information (Chrominance) from the brightness
(Luminance), which prevents nasty things like color
bleeding and dot crawl, and helps increase clarity and
sharpness.
RGB
Scaling Parameter
Video standard - Acronym for Red, Green and Blue
signals, the primary colors of television. By varying
the intensity of each of these colors in a single pixel,
the human eye can be fooled into seeing a wide range
of colors. For example, a combination of red and
green appears as yellow, even though no light with a
yellow wavelength is emanating from the screen.
This works because the optical system integrates the
photons striking a region on the retina, and the
combined impulses from green and red sensitive
cones are seen as yellow.
A single numeric value, such as zoom, window offset.
See Control Parameter. The Input and Output
resolution (width and height) are used to adapt to
different physical video resolutions at input and
output. The zoom and window offset (horizontal and
vertical) effectively allow the linear scaling and
displacement of the input image; these can be used to
implement a zoom and pan function in a projection
system, for instance.

to use analog signals. Supports pixel addressabilities
of up to 640x480x16. This is the de facto video
standard and consists of a number of video modes.
The ability to magnify (zoom in) or shrink (zoom out)
the projected image.
Warp
A spatial transformation that defines a geometric
relationship between the points in an input image and
the points in a warped output image.
A forward transformation is defined as the mapping
of the input points onto the output image, and an
inverse transformation is defined as the mapping of
output points onto the input image.
Warp Map
All of the information required to define a particular
image warping function. The function defines the u,
v source-image coordinates corresponding to every x,
y output-image coordinate point.
Warp Set
All of the data required to generate a Warp Map given
the Control Parameters and Scaling Parameters. The
Warp Set defines the effect of a Control Parameter.
The effect of a Control Parameter is defined by the
content of the Warp Set.
XGA
Acronym for Extended Graphics Array, a highresolution graphics standard introduced by IBM
in 1990. XGA was designed to replace the older
8514/A video standard. It provides the same
resolutions (640 by 480 or 1024 by 768 pixels),
but supports more simultaneous colors (65
thousand compared to 8514/A's 256 colors). In
addition, XGA allows monitors to be noninterlaced.
