To determine the exact image size when you know the projection distance (or the exact
projection distance when you know the desired image size), you can use the Image Size
Calculator. This program is available on the EPSON website at epson.com/support (U.S.) or
epson.ca/support (Canada).
Also keep these considerations in mind:
■
Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and under the projector. Do not
set the projector on top of loose materials that could block the vents underneath.
■
Make sure the projector is within 9.8 feet (3 m) of a grounded electrical outlet or
extension cord.
In order to view 3D images correctly, 3D glasses must be worn within proper range of the
projector. Use the image below to determine the ideal distance for 3D projection (the shading
represents the 3D viewing area):
60º
16.5 ft (5 m)
13 ft (4 m)
Use the optional external 3D emitter and a shielded twisted pair Category 5, RJ45 straight
network cable (make sure to use a regular Ethernet network patch cord, not a crossover-type
cable) of 32 feet (10 m) or shorter if you cannot view the 3D image normally or if the
projector is located more than 16.5 feet (5 m) from the viewing area. See “Optional
Accessories” on page 9 for ordering information.

To install the projector, you first need to determine the location, based on the size of your
screen (maximum diagonal image size). Use the tables on page 13 as a guide to positioning the
projector.
To suspend the projector from a ceiling, you will need the optional projector mount designed
for the projector. See page 9 for ordering information. Follow the instructions included with
the mount to install the projector.
Warning: When installing or adjusting the ceiling mount, do not use adhesives to prevent the
screws from loosening and do not use any type of oil or lubricant. These may cause the projector
casing to crack and the projector may fall, causing serious injury and serious damage to the
projector.
If you install the projector on the ceiling, you will need to invert the picture so that it appears
right side up. Follow these steps:
1. Press the Menu button on the remote control.
2. Open the Settings menu, then select Projection.
3. Select Front/Ceiling.

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 29. 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 signal type, 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.
■
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.
36
Making Detailed Adjustments
■
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.
It is best to use High Speed for content that frequently changes from bright to dark
images. Normal can be used for all other content.
■
Setup Level
Signal > Advanced > Setup Level
Note: This setting can be used only when an NTSC (480i) signal is being input through the
Video port, or when a video signal is being input through the Component video ports.

(0 IRE). For compatibility with most DVD and video equipment sold in the United
States, leave this setting at 0%. Check your video equipment’s specifications to be sure of
the correct setting.
■
EPSON Super White
Signal > Advanced > EPSON Super White
Note: This setting can be used only when the signal is input through the HDMI1 or HDMI2
ports with the Color Mode set to Natural or Cinema (see page 29).
If bright parts of the image are washed out or overexposed (when the input signal
contains values over 100 IRE), turn this setting on to compensate.
■
HDMI Video Range
Signal > Advanced > HDMI Video Range
Note: This setting can be used only when HDMI1 or HDMI2 is selected as the image source
(see page 21). This setting cannot be used when EPSON Super White is set to On.
If your video equipment has an HDMI port and you’ve connected it to the projector
using an HDMI cable, set the level of the projector to match that of the video equipment.
■

Important Safety Information
Follow these safety instructions when setting up and using the projector:
■
Never look into the projector lens when the lamp is turned on; the bright light can damage your
eyes. Never let children look into the lens when it is on.
■
If you or any viewer experiences the following symptoms or other major discomfort from viewing
3D video images, immediately stop viewing and contact your health care provider: convulsions,
eye or muscle twitching, loss of awareness, altered vision, involuntary movements, disorientation,
eye strain, nausea/vomiting, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, or blurry/double vision that lasts longer
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.
82
■
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.
Notices
■
The following people should limit 3D content viewing:
People with a history of photosensitivity
People with heart disease
People in poor health
People who are sleep deprived
People who are physically tired
People under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Anyone who has ever experienced epileptic seizures or sensory disturbances triggered by flashing
light effects
SOME LIGHT PATTERNS MAY INDUCE SEIZURES IN PERSONS WITH NO PRIOR
HISTORY OF EPILEPSY.
■
Never open any cover on the projector, except the lamp and filter covers. Dangerous electrical
voltages inside the projector can severely injure you.
■
Except as specifically explained in this User’s Guide, do not attempt to service this product
yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
■
The projector and its accessories come packaged in plastic bags. Keep plastic bags away from small
children to avoid any risk of suffocation.
■
Don’t place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table. Also, don’t use the projector near

■
Don’t insert the plug into an outlet with dust present, and insert the plug firmly into the outlet.
Failure to do so could result in sparks or fire.
■
Don’t overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles. This can cause
fire or electric shock.
■
Don’t block the slots and openings in the projector case. They provide ventilation and prevent the
projector from overheating. Don’t operate the projector on a sofa, rug, or other soft surface, or in a
closed-in cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
■
Never push objects through the cabinet slots or spill liquid into the projector.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under
the following conditions: when the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed; if liquid has been
spilled into the projector, or if it has been exposed to rain or water; if it doesn’t operate normally
when you follow the operating instructions, or if it exhibits a distinct change in performance,
indicating a need for service; if it has been dropped or the housing has been damaged.
■
Don’t place the projector where the cord can be walked on. This may result in fraying or damage
to the plug.
■
Unplug the projector from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth for cleaning. Do not
use liquid or aerosol cleaners.
