Installation
This section explains how to install, connect and optimize the projector. Illustrations are graphical
representations only and are provided to enhance the understanding of the written material. When
designing a projection room for either a permanent or temporary installation, consider positioning
the projector and screen for maximum audience coverage and space efficiency. For example,
placing the screen along the larger wall in a rectangular room reduces audience coverage.
Other considerations:
•
Operating single or multiple units.
•
Room size.
•
Lighting and audience seating.
•
Distance between the audience and the display.
•
Angle from which the display is viewed.
Unpack the projector
Failure to comply could result in minor or moderate injury.
• The projector should be lifted by two people.
• Use the designated handles to help lift and support the projector.
• Use a stable cart to transport the projector.
Do not place the projector onto a surface with the line cord retainer side down. Failure to

Installation
Mount the Projector
Do not stack units. Failure to comply could result in minor or moderate injury.
Failure to comply with the following may result in equipment damage:
• Air flows in through the front of the projector and out the rear of the projector.
Insufficient airflow can cause the projector to overheat during operation and / or place
stress on the source connections. When mounting the projector allow for up to 1100
CFM of airflow through the projector. Ambient temperature must stay below 40° C
(95° F).
• Inlet air temperature must be below 40° C (95° F).
• Keep the projector away from all devices radiating electromagnetic energy. For
example, motors and transformers, speakers, power amplifiers, and elevators.
i
The mounting support system and the mounting surface must be evaluated and
accepted by local authorities and must adhere to local standards and safety regulations.
Mounting points are available on all four sides of the
projector, including the front face. Each side has six
mounting points, two of which are on the front
plate. The front plate has an additional seven front
facing mounting points. Christie recommends that a
minimum of four mounting points are used in any
installation, with at least one of the mounting points
being on the front plate. A 10mm thread
engagement and a minimum torque of 30 in.-lbs
(3.5 Nm) /maximum torque of 35 in.-lbs (4 Nm) is
recommended. For some installations it may be
necessary to remove the front handles once the
projector is in its final location. To remove the
handles use a 5 mm hex driver to loosen the two
socket head cap screws.

Calculate Throw Distance and Position
Throw distance is the distance measured from your projector to the screen. This calculation
determines if there is enough room to install your projector with a desired screen size and if the
image size will be the accurate size for your screen. To estimate the throw distance take the
horizontal width of the screen and multiply it by the lens throw ratio. The result determines
approximately the distance the projector should be positioned from the screen to project a focused
image large enough to fill the screen. For example, using a 1.28 - 1.71 zoom lens set at its widest
(1.2:1) throw ratio, throw distance would roughly be 1.2 x screen width.
Use the lens and screen size to calculate the precise throw distance. Due to lens
manufacturing tolerances for lens focal length, actual throw distance can vary ±2% between
lenses with the same nominal throw ratio.

Determine Vertical and Horizontal Position
The projection lens and the screen type determine the vertical and horizontal position of your
projector in relation to the screen. Ideally, you should position the projector perpendicular to the
screen to make the image appear rectangular instead of keystoned (trapezoidal). You can offset
vertical position of the image (move it above or below the optical axis) by adjusting the lens mount.
The type of projection lens you install determines the amount of available vertical offset. Vertical
offset can be expressed as the percent of half the image height or the number of pixels of shift from
lens center.

Serial Port Connections
i
Use the RS422 port only if the device being used has this capability. Always consult with
equipment literature before connecting.
RS232 and RS422 serial ports are both available on the projector. You can connect a device with a
serial interface, such as a computer to either of these connectors (not both) and control the
projector remotely by entering specific serial communication commands.
Two nine-pin D-sub connectors, labeled RS232 IN and RS232 OUT on the input panel, are dedicated
to serial communication. Using the appropriate serial communication cables, connect the controlling
source, such as a personal computer to the RS232 IN connector. Set the projector baud rate to
match that of the computer.
To control the projector with a computer or other controlling device with RS422 capability, connect
a RS422 serial communication cable between the controlling device and the RS422 port on the
projector. RS422 is better suited than RS232, for serial communication over distances greater than
50 feet (15 m).

Do not operate if the AC supply and cord are not within the specified voltage and power
range. The North American rated line cord is supplied with this projector. For all other
regions, use only a regionally approved line cord, power plug and socket. Do not use a
damaged line cord. Failure to comply could result in death or serious injury.
In Norway, for IT power distribution systems, a dedicated protected earth wire must be
installed on the projector before it can be connected to power. The dedicated earth wire
must be installed by a Christie accredited service technician. To connect the projector to an
IT power distribution system connect the building ground to the internal ground lug behind
the AC input inside the projector. Christie recommends that you run the connection through
the louvers on the projector. Failure to comply may result in equipment damage.

This initial optical alignment is the foundation for optimizing images on the screen, and must
be completed before final boresight adjustments. Only perform image alignment once the
projector is fully assembled and powered up in its final location.
Basic Optical Alignment
1. Press Test on the IR remote to display a test pattern.
It is recommended to use the Edge Blend or Grid test pattern.
2. Perform a quick preliminary focus and (if available) zoom adjustment with the primary lens. Do
not worry about consistency across the image at this point, just center focus. It is good practice
to have the zoom adjustment collar and the focus adjustment collar in the center of its range.

020-101372-02 Rev. 1 (10-2014)
25
Installation
3. Hold a piece of paper at the lens surface, adjust offsets as necessary until the image is centered
within the lens perimeter. A full white field works best for this.
4. If necessary, center the image on the screen. If the projector is mounted off-center to the
screen axis, then offset the lens as much as required. Aim the projector over slightly towards
the center of the screen, but use caution, as too much tilt will cause excessive keystone
distortion. Lens offset will not.
5. With the test pattern on screen, double-check projector leveling so the top edge of the image is
parallel to the top edge of the screen. Make sure the projector is positioned in the throw
distance range for the lens in use.
Folded Optics
In rear screen applications where space behind the projector is limited, a mirror may be used to
fold the optical path. The position of the projector and mirror must be accurately set—if considering
this type of installation contact Christie Customer Support for assistance.
Boresight Alignment
i
• Boresight alignment is an advanced feature and should only be performed by experienced
users.
• You can also use the Grid or Edge blend test pattern to perform boresight alignment.
1. Display the Boresight test pattern by
pressing Test on the IR remote and use the
Left arrow key to cycle to Boresight.
2. Adjust the lens focusing ring until each
square displayed in the Boresight test
pattern is focused. If all three squares are
in focus, no further action is required.
3. If boresight is required, see the image on
the right to understand how the adjustment
screws on the lens mount affect the
corresponding squares on the test pattern.
4. Use a 5 mm hex key to loosen the three
locking set screws on the lens mount. The
set screws must be backed out several
turns, so that they do not contact the inner
lens mount plate.

5. Fine tune the focus of square one, by
adjusting the appropriate cap screw. Adjust until the image is in focus with minimal flare.
6. Adjust square 2, by adjusting the appropriate cap screw. Adjust until the image is in focus with
minimal flare.

7. Adjust square 3, by adjusting the appropriate cap screw. Adjust until the image is in focus with
minimal flare.
8. Repeat steps 5 to 7, as required until all squares on the test pattern are equally focused. If the
boresight is acceptable, continue to step 11. If the boresight does not appear to be converging
to an acceptable level of image quality or if the lens will not focus over the correct range of
throw distances, then the boresight requires coarse adjustment. See step 9.
9. The original factory boresight can be recovered approximately by positioning the three set
screws. Position the set screws flush with the front face of the lens mount plate and in contact
with the inner lens mount plate. This may require adjusting both set screws and cap screws.
10. If further action is required, repeat step 2.
11. Lock the set screws, and re-check the boresight quality. Tighten the set screws to prevent them
from shifting.
12. When the image is focused, lock adjustments in place by tightening the adjustment screws until
just tight.

Operation
This section explains how to correctly setup and operate the projector.
Using the IR Remote
Laser radiation is emitted from the laser diode in the remote. Do not look directly into the
laser beam. Failure to comply could result in minor or moderate injury.
i
The IR remote is included with the User Kit (P/N: 130-103105-xx), which is shipped
separately.
The standard IR remote can be used as a wired or wireless control. Under optimal conditions, the
wireless keypad can communicate with a projector over a 30 foot (10 m) distance. In wireless
mode, the standard IR remote communicates with a battery-powered infrared (IR) transmitter.
A laser pointer is built into the standard IR remote.
•
Press keys one-at-a-time; there are no simultaneous key combinations required.
•
Arrow keys are held down for continuous adjustment/movement in the related key direction.
•
In serial networks, pause briefly between adjustments to make sure that distant displays can
keep pace with the commands. If you press a key while the display is still responding to the
previous action, such as during a power-up, the second key press may not take effect.
•
For a description of the keys, see IR Remote Commands on page 37.
Wired Remote
The wired remote is recommended when the lighting conditions are unsuitable for proper IR
transmission. You can convert the standard IR remote into a wired remote using an optional cable.
Connect one end into the standard IR remote, and the other into the designated port on the input
panel. Batteries are only needed for the wired remote if the laser pointer is required.
To use the wired remote, make sure it is enabled on the display that it is connected to. To check
wired remote status select Configuration > Communications > Wired Keypad Enabled.
To use the wired remote to control multiple projectors in an ArrayLOC network, make sure that

i
• To quickly and easily swap your inputs select Swap Main and Secondary Inputs.
• To adjust the gamma settings for the secondary input select Secondary Image Settings.
See Adjust Gamma Settings on page 45.
4. Frame Locking is enabled by default. This feature is used to select how the projector controls
the output frame timing based on the input signal. When set to Frame Lock, output image
frames are locked to the input if possible. When locked, the output is always locked to the main
input. When working with two inputs you can select input 2 as the lock source for the output by
selecting Frame Lock Secondary. See Control Frame Locking on page 47.
ArrayLOC
Mirage WQ-L projectors use ArrayLOC to display a common gamut and brightness across an array of
projectors. ArrayLOC monitors the projector array and adjusts settings automatically. The following
section outlines how to manage color using ArrayLOC.
i
ArrayLOC is enabled by default.
Mirage WQ-L User Manual
020-101372-02 Rev. 1 (10-2014)
39
Operation
Take Control of the Array
Use this menu to set up array color and brightness. By default ArrayLOC is configured to display the
EBU gamut at the maximum brightness the array can support.
1. On the projector you want to work with, access the ArrayLOC menu: Main Menu > ArrayLOC.
2. Check Synchronize to This Projector to make the current projector the master.
Changes you make in the Array Color Target, Bright/ColorLOC Configuration, and RGB
and IR Brightness Targets on the master projector are broadcast to the other projectors in
the array.
The master projector has access to most settings under the Bright/ColorLOC Configuration and
Array Color Target submenus. These settings are greyed out on the other projectors in the
array to prevent conflicting information from being sent.
While working in the ArrayLOC menu and submenus, ArrayLOC displays a warning if
adjusted settings fall outside the range the system can adjust for.
Warnings include:
• Minimum brightness not met (BCLOC disabled)
• Minimum brightness not met (Warning)
• Min Gamut not met (BCLOC disabled)
• Min Gamut not met (Warning)
i
3. Enable Bright/ColorLOC Mode to automatically achieve and maintain a target gamut and
brightness. See Configure Bright/ColorLOC on page 40.
A projector with Bright/ColorLOC mode disabled ignores BCLOC changes from the master
projector. If at any point you are working with a slave projector you may not be able to
change some settings as they are locked (grayed out). To change which projector is the
master check the Synchronize to This Projector option on another projector.
i
4. RGB and IR Brightness Target fields are typically only enabled on the master unless the
system is not synchronized.
See Configure ArrayLOC on page 43.
5. Select Auto Color Enable and Test Pattern Enable. The system (background) color changes
to the target color being adjusted.
For example:
•
Red/green/blue part of red changes the system color to red.
•
Red/green/blue part of green changes the system color to green.
•
Red/green/blue part of blue changes the system color to blue.
All other menu options change the system color to white as long as Test Pattern Enable is
checked. The color resets automatically when you exit the menu.
Configure Bright/ColorLOC
This menu is used to configure the warning and minimum brightness and gamut thresholds.
Mirage WQ-L User Manual

40
Operation
1. From the Main menu, select ArrayLOC > Bright/ColorLOC Configuration to access and
work with the capabilities of the projectors in the array.
2. Set the Minimum Brightness value (as a percentage of the target brightness). This setting
indicates the minimum brightness that the array targets, and the threshold for alerts from
projectors that cannot achieve the minimum.
i
Projectors that fall below the minimum are excluded from the calculations of the common
gamut and common brightness. If the projector falls below the minimum, the projector
operates at its current brightness and gamut. LED drive level changes and electronic color
correction is not done.
3. Set the Minimum Gamut value (as a percentage of the target gamut). This setting indicates
the minimum gamut that the array displays, and the threshold for alerts from projectors that
cannot achieve the specified minimum.
Projector Capability identifies the projector capability with respect to the array common
color gamut as defined by Color Target and Brightness Target. 100% indicates the
projector meets the target. A greater number indicates that the projector can exceed the
target. A smaller number indicates how much the projector falls short of meeting the target.
The failure point for maintaining minimum gamut is calculated as: a < minimum gamut
b
For example: Where b is the length of the line from the
target white point to the target color primary, and a is the
length of the line from the target white point to the
intersection of the projector capability gamut line and the
line from the target white point to the target color primary.
4. Set the Warning Brightness Threshold as a percentage
of the brightness target. Making changes to this option,
recalculates the internal brightness warning level, and if
warnings are enabled checks the current common
brightness capability against the brightness warning level.
When the common brightness reaches the warning level, all
projectors in the BCLOC group issue the warning message,
Projector fails to meet warning brightness
threshold of xx%; capability xx%.
Target green primary

5. Set the Warning Gamut Threshold as a percentage of the target gamut. Making changes to
this option, recalculates the internal gamut warning level, and if warnings are enabled,
checks the current common gamut against the gamut warning level. When the common
gamut falls below this level, all projectors in the BCLOC group issue the warning message,
Projector fails to meet warning gamut threshold of xx%; capability Rxx% Gxx%
Bxx%.
Adjust Projected White and Primary Colors for the Array
User-defined target color spaces allow color primaries and white points to be adjusted
independently. For example, you can select the target color space User 1, copy the values from the
target color space Factory, leave the color primaries, and adjust only the white point. All the
settings for a user-defined color space are editable.

Fine-tune Whites, White Brightness, or Primary Colors
The Projector Color Adjustment menu lets you fine-tune color or brightness for individual projectors
to accommodate any projector-specific optical elements (for example projection lens, fold mirrors,
screen properties or ambient lighting). The following steps outline color adjustments using
projector color settings until the colors appear to match the rest of the projectors in the array. Color
adjustments are evaluated by eye; however, a color meter can help determine the change required.
For information about using a color meter with this procedure, see Fine-tune Projector Colors with a
Color Meter on page 44.
1. From the Main menu, select ArrayLOC > Projector Color Adjustment.
2. Use the Target Color Space option to change the color space. Changing this option applies the
red/green/blue x/y values associated with the selected option. It also updates the red/green/
blue components of each color on this menu. Selecting one of the user-defined color spaces
displays the last saved adjustment values.
i
• The Target Color Space option is enabled only on the master projector. All other projectorspecific color adjustments on this menu are available on all projectors at all times.
• ColorLOC Status displays ColorLOC warnings and errors.
3. Use the Red Part/Green Part/Blue Part of “x” options to make projector specific color
adjustments to the selected Target Color Space.
4. Use the Copy Adjustments From drop-down menu to copy the adjustment values from the
selected color space to the current color space.
Adjustments are specific to the target color space. If the color space is changed for the array,
projector adjustments can be copied from the old target color space and fine-tuned again.
5. Use the White Brightness Adjustment option to adjust the RGB brightness for the projector.
i
• If at any time you want to reset the color values to the color adjustment default values (0
or 100) select Clear Adjustments.
• To reset the red part / green part / blue part of each color to the default values set at
factory select the Reset Current Adjustments to Default option.

Operation
2. From the ArrayLOC Network drop-down list select from ArrayLOC Network or Control
Network.
3. Assign an ArrayLOC Group to the array. Only projectors in the same ArrayLOC group
automatically achieve a common gamut and brightness.
4. Use the Synchronized keys, Test Pattern, Color Enable option to set the projector to listen
for remote keystrokes through the ArrayLOC network and the master projector. All
synchronized projectors respond to the same keystrokes. Double key strokes may not register
correctly, use alternate key commands instead.
A synchronized projector automatically starts listening to its IR receiver if the master projector
becomes unavailable, for example if it goes into Standby mode. Independent indicates that the
projector listens to its own IR remote receiver. It is the default option. Change this setting for
each projector individually.
i
ArrayLOC network communication overrides RS232 serial communication for keys.
5. When you want to sync the particular feature for all the projectors in the ArrayLOC group, set
fields 4 to 7 to Synchronized.
Use the Independent setting to make changes to each projector individually independent of
the master projector. The default setting for each selection is Synchronized.
Fine-tune Projector Colors with a Color Meter
To use a color meter for projector color adjustments, follow the instructions in Fine-tune Whites,
White Brightness, or Primary Colors on page 43. Use the information below and a color meter for
the XXX Part of YYY adjustments.
1. To note the xy color values reported for the common gamut, navigate to Main Menu >
ArrayLOC > Array Color Target.
2. Measure the projected primary color with the meter and compare the metered values to the
common gamut values.
Use the adjustment guide to determine how to adjust the Projector Color Adjustment values to
correct the differences. The adjustment guides are color coded. The suggested corrections are also
color coded, and reflect the direction of the change, + or -. For example, if the measured red is 660,
325 and the Common Gamut value is 640, 330 then the measured x is high (High X) while the
measured y is low (Low Y). The corresponding quadrant of the RED guide indicates +G (increase green)
to correct the mismatch with other projectors.

Secondary Image Settings > Secondary Gamma Settings.
To access the Gamma Settings, select Image Settings > Gamma Settings. The system offers
two types of gamma correction. Gamma correction can be applied to a specific source to correct for
luma encoding. This is the Gamma control. The system also provides a global Gamma Correction
control. The global control offers an offset applied to all displays. This offset is used to compensate
for changes in ambient conditions, such as ambient light in the room and projected material.
Gamma Correction
i
Gamma correction should only be adjusted to compensate for ambient conditions.
Gamma Correction applies a global offset to all gamma settings for each input. This offset is used to
compensate for changes in ambient conditions, such as ambient light in the room and projected
material. It affects the shape of the curve by performing a linear transform toward a gamma curve
of 1.0 while the control is increasing and likewise a linear transform toward a gamma of 3.0 as the
control is decreasing. To correct a particular source only, use the Gamma control.

curve typically used to
encode graphics and video sources. The Standard curve (auto setup default) is a modified 2.22
curve with a small linear section in the black that enhances the detail in darker areas of the
projected content. Typically Standard or 2.22 is used for all sources. Alternatively, if neither
default is ideal, apply a simple gamma curve by defining a custom power function and slope. Select
Gamma Function to enable the function and slope controls.
i
For complex non-standard gamma curves, a user-defined curve created externally and
downloaded to the projector can be used (requires separate PC-based Arbitrary Gamma
software application to create the table, and the WebUI to download it). If any of these
special user curves have been installed, their names appear in the Gamma drop-down list.
Gamma Function
Defines the base gamma power curve used when Gamma is set to Gamma Function. This value,
combined with the Gamma Slope setting determines the base Gamma table to be used as the custom
base table. The curve is generally a power curve with a small linear segment at the bottom defined by
the slope.
Gamma Slope
This control defines a slope to be used for the base custom Gamma table for a small section at the
bottom of the curve. This slope can be used to bring in or out the low level blacks in the image. This
slope, combined with the gamma function, defines the custom Gamma table.

automatically goes into Standby mode. The presence of any activity within this combined interval
cancels auto shutdown and returns the projector to normal operation.
Turn Off Image After (min)
This sets the activation interval (in minutes) for auto shutdown. If all activity (input signals, Web or
Serial port activity key presses) is lost for this length of time, and auto shutdown is enabled, an
auto shutdown cycle begins.
Enter Standby After (min)
This sets the interval (in minutes) between starting Auto Shutdown and entering Standby mode.
Once Auto Shutdown has been entered, and all activity continues to be absent for this interval, the
projector automatically enters power Standby mode.
Stealth Mode
Check this option to operate the projector with the status LED display on the input panel powered
Off. The status LED is powered Off during operation only. In Standby mode, the status LED displays

Warp and Blend Images
The digital image warp and blend functionality combines multiple projector images into a single
image. Use the Christie’s TwistTM and AutoCal applications to adjust the image so it fits different
screen shapes. Adjustments can be made to correct keystone on flat screens or fit an image to
spherical, cylindrical, curved, or arbitrary screen shapes.
Digital blend definitions allow images from multiple projectors to be overlapped to create a single
image.
Dual pipeline input support provides the ability to select Warp and Blend files independently for
each of the two projector input channels. This allows different warps to be applied for visible and IR
channels (in Infrascene), or for different view perspectives to be displayed. In this mode
(WRP+ESPL), the time to enable the warps is longer, approaching 10 seconds.
For information about creating and managing warps and blends, please refer to the TwistTM User
Manual (P/N: 020-100143-xx) or the AutoCal 3.0 User Manual (P/N: 020-100985-xx).

3D Operation of Mirage Projectors
Images generated from a stereo 3D video source consist of a series of images or frames that
alternate quickly between two slightly different viewpoints, corresponding to our left and right eyes.
Mirage WQ-L User Manual
020-101372-02 Rev. 1 (10-2014)
52
Operation
When these frames are displayed fast enough and viewed with special glasses synchronized to the
left or right changes, the resulting image appears to have the same depth and perspective as
reality.
To display stereoscopic 3D video, you must connect the Mirage WQ-L projector to additional
hardware such as stereo emitters and glasses. The type of 3D glasses can be active or passive
depending on the type of stereo controller and screen used.
3D System Timing
When configuring the projector for 3D operation, consult the documentation for your glasses or
polarization filter and keep their specifications in mind. The projected video must be optimized for
the glasses’ shutter speed or polarization filter performance to prevent “ghosting” of the video
content (known as cross-talk in stereo 3D applications) or other more subtle color artifacts. Visual
performance can be optimized by adjusting the Dark Interval and the 3D Sync Delay settings.
3D Input Video Configurations
The stereo 3D input video stream is sent from the content server to the projector using 3D direct or
dual-input.
3D Frame Doubled Input
The Mirage projector supports a WQXGA 60Hz (30 Hz per eye) video input over a single DVI-D
cable. In this configuration a single video stream is provided by the video server, with the left eye
and right eye frames supplied as alternate frames. The display is frame doubled by the projector
resulting in 120 Hz projection. A 3D Input Sync must be used to identify the left eye frames.
3D Dual-Input 120Hz native output
The Mirage projector supports two WQXGA 60Hz video inputs, with the left eye frames supplied by
one video input and the right eye frames supplied by the other. The video streams must be frame
locked and supplied concurrently. The 3D dual-input video streams are supplied by two DVI Dual
Link connections.
3D Requirements
To control the projector’s processing, synchronization, and display of the stereoscopic 3D source
material, stereo 3D applications require a stereo 3D-capable source, special hardware and
software, and the settings of the projector.
Hardware Requirements for Stereo 3D Applications
•
Christie Digital Systems Mirage WQ-L Series projector .
•
3D stereo sync cable (for 3D frame doubled mode) .
•
A source, usually a computer with a 3D graphics card or specialized video server.

53
Operation
•
Emitter for controlling active shutter glasses, or a qualified device that mounts in front of the
lens of the projector to process the light from the lens into a passive polarized light for passive
glasses. Contact your Christie dealer for more information.
Software and Content Requirements for Stereo 3D Applications
•
Any 3D computer software that supports 3D stereo on a supported computer(s) with associated
graphic cards. Suggested cards include ATI or NVIDIA.
•
A video stream from a video source prepared to be sequential content (for 3D frame doubled)
or two video streams from a video source that has been prepared to be supplied left eye and
right eye concurrently and frame locked (3D dual-input).

Operation
For operation with passive glasses, a 3D polarization filter is placed in front of the lens and is
synchronized to the projected frames with the 3D Sync Out signal (BNC A). The left/right
synchronization signal is connected to BNC B on the projector, which is necessary for 3D frame
doubled input configurations.
Set Up the Mirage WQ-L to Display 3D Content
The projector must be installed to correctly display 2D content (optically aligned, focused, etc.)
before configuring the 3D content:
1. Connect the 3D equipment to the projector using the instructions provided with the 3D
equipment.
2. Click Main Menu > Image Settings > 3D Settings.
3. Select 3D Mode as Dual Input or Frame Doubled, according to how the source is connected
to the projector.
4. Configure your 3D source.
5. For Dual Input mode, use the Main Input field and select Input 1 or Input 2 for the left eye
and set the Secondary Input to the other input for the right eye.
6. For 3D Frame Doubled mode, set the 3D Sync Input to the External if a sync signal is
connected, or Internal if no 3D sync signal is connected to the projector.
7. To enable the 3D Sync output, set the 3D Sync Output to the To Emitter selection, or To
Next Input for a projector array.
8. Set the last projector in the array to To Emitter.
9. Display the 3D Test Pattern.
If you can see both a grid and a checkerboard test pattern superimposed with each eye,
increase the Dark Interval until a different test pattern is visible on the left eye and the right
eye.
10. To minimize the ghosting of the two patterns with respect to one another, adjust the 3D Sync
Output delay as necessary.
The delay adjusts when the sync pulse is sent to the emitter with respect to the dark time
transition on the DMDs.
11. To reverse the left and right eye images, select Invert 3D Input.

Maintenance
Cleaning the Lens
Check periodically. A small amount of dust or dirt on the lens has minimal effect on image quality.
To avoid the risk of scratching the lens, clean only if absolutely necessary.
Remove Dust
1. Brush most of the dust from the lens with a camel-hair brush or blow dust away with a dustfree blower.
2. Fold a microfibre cloth smooth and gently wipe remaining dust particles from the lens. Wipe
evenly with the smooth portion of the cloth that has no folds or creases. Do not apply pressure
with your fingers – use the tension in the folded cloth itself to collect dust.
3. If significant dust is still bound to the surface, dampen a clean microfibre cloth with coated
optics cleaning solution (damp, not dripping). Wipe gently until clean.
Remove Fingerprints, Smudges, or Oil
1. Brush away most of the dust with a camel-hair brush and/or blow away using a dust-free
blower.
2. Roll a lens tissue around a swab and soak it in coated optics cleaning solution. The tissue should
be damp, but not dripping.
3. Gently wipe the surface using a figure-eight motion. Repeat this motion until the blemish is
removed.

Message Formats
•
Set: A command to set a projector parameter at a specific level, such as changing to a certain
input.
•
Request: A request for information, such as what input is currently in use.
•
Reply: The projector returns the data in response to a request or as confirmation of a
command.
All “Remote Control” information passes IN and OUT of the projector as a simple text message,
consisting of a three letter command code, an optional four-letter subcode, and any related data.
When a parameter for a specific source is being accessed, the four-letter subcode are added on to
the Command code. A number of optional features (message acknowledges, checksums, and
network addressing) can be included.
Generally, most commands include 0 or 1 data fields or parameters. Where applicable, a message
may expand to include additional parameters of related details.
The smallest step size for any parameter is always 1. Some controls, such as Size, the value
displayed on the screen has a decimal point. (for example, 0.200 to 4.000) In this case, the values
used for the serial communications is an integer value (for example, 200 to 4000), not the decimal
value seen on the screen.

Basic Message Structure
The following component fields comprise a standard ASCII message. Optional fields, such as extra
characters for special modes, restrictions or added functionality, are shown in italics, with the
exception of Notes.
Start and End of Message
i
If the start character (left bracket) is received before an end character of the previous
message, the partial (previous) message is discarded.
Every message begins with the “(” (left bracket) character and ends with the “)” (right bracket)
character.

Serial Communication
Prefix Characters (optional)
For acknowledgement that the projector has responded, and/or to maximize message integrity,
insert one or two special characters before the three-character Function code:
Special Character
Description
$
Simple Acknowledgment, which causes a ‘$’ character to be sent back from the
projector when it has finished processing the message. See Maximize Message
Integrity on page 69.
#
Full Acknowledgment, which causes an echo of the message as a reply to be
sent back from the projector when it has finished processing the message. See
Maximize Message Integrity on page 69.
&
Checksum, which allows a checksum to be put as the last parameter in the
message for verification at the projector. See Maximize Message Integrity on
page 69.
Projector Numbers (optional)
To control a selected projector or controller within a group, include its assigned number or address
just before the three-character ASCII Function code. See Network Operation on page 71.
Function Code
The projector function you want to work with, such as input selection or gamma, is represented by
a three-character ASCII code (A-Z, upper or lowercase). This Function code appears immediately
after the leading “(“ (left bracket) that starts the message. In messages sent to the projector that
do not have a Subcode, a space between the Function code, and the first parameter (or special
character) is optional.
+Subcode
The projector function you want to work with may have one or more subcodes that allow you to
select a specific source, image, input or subfunction. The Subcode is represented by a fourcharacter ASCII code (A-Z, upper or lowercase, and 0-9). This Subcode appears immediately after
the Function code, with a “+” character to separate the code, and subcode. If there is no Subcode,
the “+” (plus sign) is also omitted. In messages sent to the projector that do have a subcode, a
space between the subcode and the first parameter (or special character) is optional.
Request/Reply Symbols
If the controller is requesting information from the projector, a “?” (question mark) appears directly
after the Function code. If the projector is replying, an “!” (exclamation mark) appears directly after
the Function code. For Set type messages sent to the projector, neither of these characters appear.
Data directly follows the code and subcode.

Other Special Functions (optional)
To add functionality to the current message, include one or more of the following special characters
between the Function code/Subcode, and the first parameter. If more than one, add them in any
order. See Flow Control on page 70.
C

T
Return the type of control (such as Slidebar and so

Data
The value for a given projector state, such as “ON” or “OFF”, appears in ASCII-decimal format
directly after the request/reply symbol. You can add an optional space after the symbol (that is,
before the data) in a set message, but data in replies follow the “!” (exclamation) symbol without a
space. Other details to remember about data:
•
All values returned by the projector (reply messages) have a fixed length, regardless of the
actual value. For a specific parameter, the length is always the same (for example, contrast is
always returned as three characters, projector number is always returned as five characters).
The minimum parameter size is three characters. Values that are less than the pre-defined size
are padded with leading zeros as needed. Parameters which have negative signs (-) are zero
padded after the negative sign, and have one less digit to make space for the sign.
•
If entering a negative number, there must be a space between the code/subcode, and the
value. For example, (CRM3) and (CRM 3) can both be used when the number is positive. (CRM
-2) is acceptable, but (CRM-2) is not.
•
Data in set messages to the projector do not require padding with zeros.
•
Within each message, multiple parameters of data must be separated by one “space” character.
•
Text parameters are enclosed in double quotes following the data, as in “Name”.

Serial Communication
Maximize Message Integrity
For additional reassurance and/or maximum message integrity, you can insert one or two special
characters:
•
Acknowledgements: If you want assurance from the projector (or group of projectors) that a
set message has been processed, request an acknowledgement. An acknowledgement is
returned after a message has been received and fully executed by the projector (such as in the
case of a source switch it is not sent until the switch is complete). If a message is not able to
execute for some reason (such as invalid parameters, timeout, and so on) a NAK is returned
instead (Not-Acknowledge). Note that requesting an acknowledgement serves no purpose when
included in a request message, since the acknowledgement is redundant to the actual reply
from the projector. However, if requested, the “$” acknowledgement from the projector follows
the reply.
There are two types of acknowledgements:
•
Simple Acknowledgements: Insert a “$” character just after the start code “(“. This only
return a ‘$’. This only return a '$' on success, or a '^' on failure (NAK).
•
Full Acknowledgements: Insert a “#” character just after the start code “(“. This returns the
message sent, as a reply.
This is a quick way to confirm success with set messages, and is particularly useful with longdistance communication links or where the projectors and/or images are not visible from the
controller. Acknowledgements can also be a type of flow control.
Checksums: For maximum message integrity, add a checksum character “&” just after the start
code “(”. You must then also include the correct checksum total (0-255) just before the “)” end
code. Make sure to add a space before the calculated checksum to separate it from the last data
parameter:
The checksum is the low order byte of the sum of the ASCII values of all characters between the
“(“and the beginning of the checksum, but not including either. It does include the space in front of
the checksum. Calculate the checksum for the above “set contrast to 64” command as follows:
CHECKSUM EXAMPLE = & + B + G + F + 2 + 2 + 2 + ‘space’
= 26h+42h +47h +46h +32h +32h +32h+20h
= 01ABh
= ABh when only the low byte is used
= 171
The projector collects all of the message bytes as defined in the first byte of the message, then
creates its own checksum value for comparison with the checksum included in the controller’s
message. If the values match, the message is considered to have been correctly received—
otherwise the message is discarded.
i
‘h’ indicates a hex number. If a “request” message has a checksum so will the reply.
If using both “acknowledge” and “checksum”, either character can occur first.

Serial Communication
Access Specific Inputs
For several commands (for example, BGC, Base Gamma Curve) you can direct the message to
particular input or image. To do this, include a subcode after the function code.
Example:
(BGC 1) Select 2.22 gamma curve for main input.
(BGC+MAIN 1) Select 2.22 gamma curve for main input.
It is only possible to set parameters from a specific input if that parameter is stored separately for
each input. This function cannot be used for parameters that are specified for the projector as a
whole such as projector address. The serial commands listed in the document specify which
subcodes are applicable to each function.
Flow Control
i
Xon and Xoff controls apply to both directions of communication. The projector does not
send more than three characters after it has received a 13h (Xoff) code.
Normally messages can be sent to the projector before processing of earlier messages is
complete—the projector just stores messages in a buffer until ready to process. However, if a series
of messages is sent the projector may not be able to process them as fast as they arrive and the
buffer becomes full. If this happens, the projector sends the 13h (Xoff) code to instruct the
controller (or any devices preparing to transmit) to cease transmission. At this point, the controller
must respond immediately and send no more than ten extra characters or they may be lost (such
as, the projector is able to accommodate the receipt of up to ten more bytes after it sends 13h
(Xoff). When the buffer is once again available, the projector sends a 11h (Xon) command to
resume transmission.

Serial Communication
Network Operation
Up to 1000 projectors can be linked together in a chain with the ‘OUT’ port on one connected to the
‘IN’ port on the next. A controller connected to the ‘IN’ port on the first projector can control them
all, either by broadcasting messages which have no address and are thus seen by all projectors, or
by directing messages to specific projector addresses.
To work with a specific projector in a group, the projectors must first be assigned a unique I.D.—
either a projector number or an Ethernet IP address. Insert the number of the target projector
between the starting ‘(’ and the three-character ASCII code.
Message for Specific Projector
(
Addr
Code
Data
)
Each projector compares the message address with its own address and, if matching, responds and
processes the message. If the address does not match, the message is passed on until it reaches
the intended projector.
Although messages without an address are always broadcast, you can also broadcast by including
the reply destination address 65535. This ensures that replies go to a specific controller address
rather than being broadcast. The projector also includes its address.
Message for Projector from a Specific Controller
(
Dest
Src
Code
Data
)
If you have more than one controller on a network, ensure to include both a source address and a
destination address. With a single controller on the network, its address is never required. Place the
source address between the destination address and three-character code, including a space before
and after as shown. NOTE: Replies from a projector do not contain an address unless the request
message includes both a destination address and a source address—such as, a reply to a request
having only a destination address does not have any source address.

GPIO Port
This section explains how to use a GPIO link from the projector to external equipment, such as
devices for 3D synchronizing. The GPIO port located on the input panel provides a flexible method
of interfacing a wide range of external I/O devices to the projector. There are seven GPIO pins
available on the nine pin D-Sub GPIO connector, which are configurable through RS232 commands.
The other two pins are reserved for ground and power — see table below for pin identification. The
serial cable required for connecting the external device to the projector’s GPIO connector, must be
compatible with the external device.

GPIO Port
Configure GPIO
The GPIO connector can be configured to automate any number of events using the serial command
code GIO. See GIO–General Purpose Input/Output on page 6. Each pin is defined as either an input
or output depending on the desired outcome. Configure the pin as an input if you want the
projector to respond to something the device does and as an output if you want the external device
to respond to an action taken by the
projector. For example, configure the pin as an output if you want the lighting in a room to
automatically dim when the projector is powered On. By using the GIO command, you can also set
the state of each output pin as high or low. By default, the state of each pin is high. The voltage
applied to pins in the high state is +3.3 V. A low state (or value of 0) will be read on an input pin if
the circuit attached to the pin is open. A high state (or value of 1) will be read on an input pin if the
circuit attached to the pin is shorted to ground. This corresponds to a switch closing event.
Pin
Open (0 or L)
Pin
Closed (1 or H)
Example
Turn room lighting on when the projector is powered Off (assumes a control/automation unit is
configured to power the lights On when pin 2 of its input goes high).
i
The strings in the commands refer to pins 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9 in order from left to right.
(GIO+CNFG “OOOIIII”)
Set pin #2, 3 and 4 configuration to output and pin 6, 7, 8 and 9 to input.
(GIO+STAT “HLXXXXX”)
Set pin #2 to high, pin 3 to low and the state of all other pins unchanged.
Query Command
(GIO+STAT)
Request the state of all pins.
(GIO+STAT “HLLHLLH”)
Reply of pin states - H means pin is high, L means pin is low.
(GIO+CNFG)
Request the configuration of all pins.
(GIO+CNFG “IIIOOOO”)
Reply of pin configurations - pins #2, 3 and 4 are inputs, pins 6, 7, 8 and 9
are outputs.
