The RTX system combines the signal processing capabilities
of the DigiOptic™ Image Processor with the high fidelity
reproduction of the DLP™ technology Display by linking the
two units via a fibre optic cable.
The DigiOptic™ Image Processor, which should be ideally
located close to the signal sources, supports and processes a
wide range of video signals, transmitting them to the display by
means of a fibre optic link cable.
The large number of inputs available (2 Composite Video inputs,
2 S-Video inputs, up to 4 Component or RGB inputs, 2 graphic
RGB inputs and 1 DVI-D input,1HDMI™) ensures the system
supports a wide variety of analogue and digital sources: DVD
players, VCRs, satellite and terrestrial receivers, computers,
game consoles, video cameras, etc.
The signal processing capabilities of the Image Processor
ensure optimum reproduction of a broad range of input signals,
from interlaced video to high definition and graphics.
Conversion of interlaced video signals to progressive signals
by means of prestigious DCDi™ technology produces fluid,
natural, images free of flicker and stairstepping artefacts.
Faithful reproduction of signals at higher resolutions (such as
high definition video and graphics) occurs without loss of
information or reduction of image sharpness thanks to the
processor’s high pixel rate signal acquisition capabilities.
Adaptation of the input signal resolution to the Display resolution
occurs without alterations of image quality, in accordance with
an ample choice of aspect ratios, including several definable
by the user.
All image adjustments can be performed with the remote control
with the aid Ôf the On Screen Display; alternatively, the unit
can be controlled by from a home automation system through
the serial port.
The Display, with its elegant and original design, produces an
image using the very latest Texas Instruments DLP™ technology
(1280x720 pixel DMD™ panel with 12° technology), a
proprietary dust-sealed optical system, a new six-segment
colour wheel and a new type of Fresnel lens. All these features
combine to provide a top quality image, with definition,
sharpness, colorimetry and contrast on a par with the famous
frontal Displays in SIM2’s Grand Cinema line.
The two units are connected via a three-core fibre optic cable
for transmission of the digital signal from the DigiOptic™ Image
Processor to the Display and control signals in both directions.
Transmission occurs without interference or attenuation over
distances of up to 500 m.
Moreover, the flexibility and small size of the cable allow the
maximum freedom when installing the system in your home.
SIM2 carries out comprehensive functional testing
in order to guarantee the maximum product quality.
For this reason, when you start using the product
lamp operating hours may already be at between
30 and 60.
In addition to the regular tests, the Quality Control
department performs additional statistical tests at
the time of shipment.
In this case the packing may show signs of having
been opened, and the accumulated lamp operating
hours may be slightly higher than the hours associated with the standard tests.

The connection between the two units is made with a single
cable containing three fibre optic cables each terminating in
an LC connector. The standard cable length of 20 m will be
sufficient for most installation requirements.
During installation of the fibre optic cable:
• The individual optical cables are delicate: always handle the main
cable without touching the individual optical cables (Fig. 3). Never
pull the individual optical cables or connectors; if necessary, you
may pull the main three-core cable.
• Make sure that the cable does not constitute an obstacle for
persons moving around the room.
• Take care not to create knots in the cable; the minimum radius
of bends in the cable is 2 cm.
• Prevent the cable from pulling and mechanical stress: this
could cause the connectors to be pulled out and damaged.
3
accordance with the distance and height of the viewing position
in front of the Display (Fig. 2).
The system can be fully controlled using the supplied IR
(infrared) remote control handset. There is a single remote
control for both the DigiOptic™ Image Processor and the
Display; the remote control can be directed towards either unit
since they are both equipped with an IR sensor.

• Only remove the cap protecting the connector ferrule
immediately before inserting the connector; if the ferrule is
allowed to come into contact with foreign material it may be
damaged, making the connector unusable.
• Take particular care when inserting fibre optic connectors
in their respective sockets on the rear panel of the
DigiOptic™ Image Processor and the rear panel of the
Display (Fig. 4).
• Make sure that the single optical cables are not switched: the
numbers on the cables must match the numbers on the
connectors.
• Check that the connectors are correctly inserted.
• Use the cable clamps on the rear panel of the Display to
protect the connectors from traction and leverage.

CONNECTING THE VIDEO SOURCES
Connect the cables from the video sources, the serial cable
from the external control unit and the optical fibre cables for
connection to the Display, to the rear panel of the DigiOptic™
Image Processor.
To obtain the best performance from the RTX system, connect
the various signal sources using good quality cables designed
for video applications (rated impedance 75 Ω).
Ensure that:
• the cables are routed in such a way that they do not present
an obstruction to people moving around the room;
• the connectors are inserted carefully to avoid damaging the
pins;
• the cables are not twisted or crushed;
• when disconnecting the cables the connectors are not
violently pulled out of the sockets on the various units.
Video sources (television receivers, VCRs, DVD players, etc.)
often feature several outputs. To obtain the best performance
from your system, carefully choose which output to use.
Generally, the type of signal offering the best picture quality is
DVI-D, followed by RGB, Components, S-Video and Composite
Video, in that order.
However, the RTX system is equipped with an excellent Video
Decoder and Deinterlacer and therefore even inferior quality
signals will produce high quality results.
Table 1 shows the types of signals usually available for the
most common types of video sources and the corresponding
input connectors to use on the DigiOptic™ Image Processor.

VIDEO 1 2
These inputs should be connected to a Composite Video signal
(CVBS) by means of a cable with an RCA connector.
The connector on the source is usually yellow and is frequently
labelled VIDEO.
Although other types of signals are preferable (since they allow
better picture quality), this is still the most common type of
output, and nearly all television receivers, video-recorders, DVD
players, video cameras, etc., are equipped with CVBS outputs.
S-VIDEO 3
4
These inputs should be connected to an S-Video signal by
means of a cable with a 4-pin mini-DIN type connector.
The corresponding output on the source can be identified by
the wording S-VIDEO or Y/C.
Almost as widespread as Composite Video, S-VIDEO is
preferable because it offers a clearer and sharper picture.
COMPONENT / RGBS
5
6
7
8
These inputs are composed of three sets of 5 RCA connectors
(5,6,7) and a set of 5 BNC connectors (8).
Each set of connectors is suitable for RGB and Component
signals.
RGB signals can have the following synchronisations:
composite sync on the green signal (RGsB), H+V Composite
Sync, or separate H/V Sync.
Connect the R, G, B outputs of the source to the respective R,
G, B inputs of the DigiOptic™ Image Processor (paying attention
not to invert the positions) and any synchronisation signals to
the HV input or the H and V inputs. When connecting the three
sets of RCA connectors use the colours as a guide: connector
R is red, G is green, B is blue, H/HV is white and V is black.
By using a suitable SCART to RCA (or BNC) connector adapter
cable, an RGB video signal from a source equipped with an
SCART connector can be connected to this input.
Component signals are connected to inputs Y, Cr and Cb, taking
care to observe the correspondence with the outputs on the
source.
Since the latter can be labelled in various ways, refer to Table 1
to establish the correspondence between the various signals.
The connector colours can also be of help, as shown in the
7
table.The video signals that can be connected to this input
can have horizontal scanning frequencies of 15 kHz (standard
video resolution), 32 kHz, or higher (progressive scanning video, high definition video).
Some sources provide the facility to choose between a
progressive signal or an interlaced signal. Although in general
a progressive signal is higher quality than an interlaced signal,
it is often preferable to perform the deinterlacing operation on
the RTX system rather than on the source because the RTX
system is equipped with Faroudja’s sophisticated directional
correlation deinterlacing technology (DCDi™).
Progressive signals usually provide better quality than interlaced
signals, but if the source features both progressive and
deinterlaced signal outputs it is good practice to compare the
quality of the pictures reproduced by the RTX system in the
two cases: deinterlacing performed by the RTX system (thanks
to Faroudja DCDi™ technology) is often more effective than
that performed at the source (typically a DVD player).
RGB GRAPHICS 9
10
This input should be connected to an RGB-type video or graphic
signal using a cable with a DB15HD type connector.
The signal source device (typically a personal computer or
game console) must be able to provide separate H/V
synchronisation or composite H+V.
The video or graphic signals that can be connected to this
input can have horizontal scan frequencies (H-sync) of between
32 and 80 kHz and a vertical frequency (V-sync) of between 48
and 100 Hz. Image resolution can vary between 640x480 and
1600x1200 pixels (VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA, UXGA).
DVI-D 11
If your source is equipped with this type of output (increasingly
present on the latest PCs) you can take advantage of the better
picture quality by using the DVI-D input.
HDMI™ 12
With this input it is possible to integrate the optimal quality of a digital
image with a multichannel audio signal.
The HDMI™ (High Definition Multimedia Interface) in fact integrates a
multichannel audio signal with the uncompressed high definition video
signal.
The interface also allows the exchange between the video source
and the HT 300 LINK system of control data to optimise the quality of
8
the projected image.
The HDMI™ input allows connection to video sources that use the
HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) protocol to protect their contents. This protocol is in fact incorporated in the definition of the HDMI™ technology.
Once the video source has been connected to the HDMI™ input, internal processing by the DIGIOPTIC IMAGE PROCESSOR separates
the video information from the audio information. This information is
then made available via an optical digital output with a female TOSLINK
connector in accordance with the S/PDIF standard.
CONTROL (RS232)
The system can be controlled via a personal computer or home
automation systems by means of the serial port: simply connect
this input via a serial cable from an RS232 serial port. On
request, SIM2 will send you a document containing the serial
port settings and the list of main commands.
Fig. 6

4 SWITCHING ON AND OFF
The RTX system consists of the Display and the DigiOptic™ Image
Processor (which is also the system control centre). The DigiOptic™
Image Processor sends commands to the Display and receives
operating status information from the Display and function commands
from the user. The system can be controlled from either the remote
control (via the infrared sensors on the DigiOptic™ Image Processor
and on the Display) or the keypad located on the rear of the Display.
The two units have separate power supplies however: after connecting
the unit to the electrical mains supply:
1) Set the two power switches to “I”; the DigiOptic™ Image Processor
power switch is located on the external power supply unit (Fig. 7a),
while the Display switch is on the rear panel (Fig. 7b).
2) Turn on the DigiOptic™ Image Processor by pressing the
button on the front panel (Fig. 7c).
Significant status signals are given in Table 3.

Switching on the system (Fig.8):
• from the remote control (keys 0-9)
• from the Display keypad (keys and ).
Typically, the picture will appear after 15-20 seconds. Pressing
a key from 1-9 on the remote control selects the corresponding
input; pressing 0 selects the input active at the time the system
was last switched off.
If the system is switched on very soon after it was last switched
off, the lamp may fail to come on because it is too hot. In this
case just wait a few minutes to allow the lamp to cool.
In case the Display unit is shut down (for example due to a shut
down of the Display unit by putting the switch in the “O” position
or by accidentally unplugging the power cord cable) to re-boost
the RTX system it is necessary to shut down the DigiOptic™
Image Processor and repeat the power-on procedure described
in point 1 and 2.

The remote control transmits commands to the system by
infrared signals.
There are two infrared sensors, one at the front of the Display
and one on the front panel of the DigiOptic™ Image
Processor.
Avoid placing obstructions between the remote control and
the infrared sensor at the front of the Display; this will impair
the remote control performance.
The remote control requires four 1.5V AAA alkaline batteries.
Insert the batteries, taking care to match the polarity, as
indicated in the battery compartment in the handset (Fig. 11).
Change the remote control batteries if you experience
difficulty in transmitting commands to the system.
Remove batteries from the remote control if it is to remain
unused for a long period of time to avoid the risk of potentially
harmful chemical leaks.

signals), and format.
Fom the SETUP menu it is possible to choose to visualize or not
this information, for more details check the “SOURCE
INFORMATION” in “MENU” section.
Some adjustments (e.g. BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST) are
associated with a numerical value that can be varied within the
set limits using the keys / . For others (e.g. VIDEO TYPE)
you can choose among three options presented on the same
/ ).
Other adjustments (marked by the < symbol) provide
submenus, which appear as a superimposed window in which

The various menus only offer the relevant adjustments in
accordance with the type of input signal displayed (e.g. certain
typical adjustments for video signals, not necessary for graphic
signals, do not appear on the menus, and vice versa).
This menu features the adjustments related to picture quality.
Adjustments that are not available for a given input do not
appear on the menu. Table 4 summarises the adjustments
available for each input. For a complete overview of the onscreen menus, consult the ‘On screen menu layout’ in the
“Additional Information” section.
13
BRIGHTNESS
Use this control to adjust the image’s black level without
affecting white areas. Increasing the value will give more detail
in darker parts of the picture. For correct adjustment it may
prove useful to display the signal relative to the grey scale within
which the black level and the level immediately above it must
be separately identifiable. Alternatively use a scene composed
of black objects alongside other dark coloured objects.
CONTRAST
Use this control to adjust the image’s black level without
affecting white areas.
To ensure correct adjustment, it may prove useful to display
the signal relative to the grey scale, within which the white level
and the level immediately below it must be separately
identifiable. Alternatively use a scene composed of well-lit white
objects surrounded by light coloured objects with lower level
lighting.
COLOR
This control (also called Saturation) increases or decreases
the picture colour intensity. When set to zero, colour images
will be shown in black and white. Increasing the value, try to
find the point at which the colours look natural: suitable
references include skin tones and grass in landscape shots.
TINT
Controls the purity of the colours. Basically determines the
red-green ratio of the picture.
Reducing the value will boost the red contents of the picture,
increasing the value will boost the green tones. For this
adjustment use skin tones or a test pattern image with colour
bars as a reference.
SHARPNESS
Use this adjustment to increase and decrease the level of
picture detail.
When the sharpness value is reduced the image details
appear less pronounced, while increasing the value raises
image definition, making the outline of objects sharper.
Note that an excessively high value may result in a ‘noisy’ picture
and the edges of objects may be unnaturally defined.
14
SHARPNESS MODE
This allows you to select the type of processing associated
with sharpness adjustment. In the case of a progressive or
interlaced video signal VIDEO mode is advisable; with PC graphic
signals use GRAPHIC MODE.
FILTER
This allows you to select the mode in which the input signal
is processed. Selecting the most appropriate value for a given
input signal ensures the best horizontal and vertical definition
and makes the picture sharper.
CINEMA MODE
In AUTO the deinterlacer recognises if the video signal source
is a movie film (obtained from a Telecine device with 3:2 or 2:2
pull-down) and applies a deinterlace algorithm optimised for this
type of signal.
If the video signal source is not identified as a film, or if you
select NO the deinterlacer applies a Motion compensated
algorithm optimised for video camera signals.
VIDEO TYPE
Activates a filter to improve stability of pictures from video
recorders. To toggle between NORMAL, VCR1 mode and VCR2
mode press
on the remote control.
NOISE REDUCTION
This adjustments allows to choose the filter value for noise
reduction purposes.
As soon as this option is selected on the menu, the image is
divided in two parts.
In the left side the image is not altered by the filter, in the right
part the filter is activated.
This allows you to compare the effect of the filter.
It is possible to deactivated the filter (NOT ACTIVE), to use the
automatic adjustments (AUTO) or to manually select (MANUAL)
the value suitable for the image with the VALUE adjustment.
In case of using the VALUE adjustement, it is enoght to select to
cursor below and set the value with the / keys of the remote
control.
Associated to the NOISE REDUCTION there is the possibility to use the
specific function (FLESH TONE CORRECTION) to make skin tone more
natural. Often the use of noise reduction filter slightly degrades
the image in those areas where skin tones are visible. With the
use of this function it is possible to maintain an excellent image
quality throughout the entire projected image.

IMAGE
This menu features adjustments relating to picture position,
aspect ratio, etc.
ASPECT
This adjustment allows you to change the dimensions and
aspect ratio (relationship between width and height) of the
displayed image. There are five preset aspects available and
three personalised aspects (with user-settable parameters). You
can select a different aspect for each source: the selected
aspect ratio will be automatically called the next time the relative source is called.
You can also select the required aspect ratio by repeatedly
pressing the
key, or by pressing
and a numerical key
(1...8).
The following aspects are available.
NORMAL: projects the image occupying the full height of the
screen while maintaining the aspect ratio of the input signal.
When the input signal aspect ratio is 4:3 black vertical bands
are displayed on the right and left of the picture.
ANAMORPHIC: allows a 16:9 picture to be displayed correctly.
PANORAMIC: this aspect stretches the 4:3 image, slightly
cropping the upper and lower parts.
Panoramic is ideal for displaying a 4:3 image on the 16:9 screen
of the Display.
PIXEL TO PIXEL: this aspect displays the image as it is input without
adapting it to the screen.
The image is projected in the centre of the screen and if its
horizontal and/or vertical dimensions are smaller than the
display, it is bounded by vertical and/or horizontal black bands.
USER 1, 2, 3: When none of the preset formulas are suitable, the
User formulas are available, with the facility for continuous
horizontal and vertical adjustment of picture size.
COLOR TEMPERATURE
Changes the colour balance of the image.
Colours can be adjusted towards the red end of the spectrum
(low colour temperature values - expressed in degrees Kelvin)
or the blue end (high values).
Colour temperature can be selected with three preset values:
HIGH (corresponding to approx. 9000 degrees Kelvin), MEDIUM
(approx. 8000 degrees Kelvin), LOW (approx. 6500 degrees
Kelvin) and one PERSONAL setting controlled by the user with
separate adjustments for RED, GREEN and BLUE.
In the personale color adjustment for all three colors it is possible
to set an Offset value and Gain.
The Offset adjustments have an impact of the low IRE values,
while the Gain adjustments impact of the higher IRE values.
Generally, the HIGH value is more suitable for displaying graphic
images, MEDIUM and LOW for video images.
These adjustments are reserved for expert users since there is
a risk of obtaining results that impair projected image quality.
GAMMA CORRECTION
Determines the system’s response to the grey scale,
emphasising or attenuating the different grades of brightness
(blacks, dark, medium, light grey, whites) in the projected
image.
The GRAPHICS setting is more suitable for computer images,
while the FILM and VIDEO settings are more suitable for video
images.
15
POSITION
Use this adjustment to position the image vertically and
horizontally. Determines the aspect ratio of the projected image.
These parameters do not normally require adjustment because
the system checks the input signal and automatically sets the
most suitable values.
However, if the image is not perfectly centralised it may prove
useful to request the system to repeat the input signal analysis
and image positioning, calling the automatic control procedure from the AUTO button on the remote control or keypad. When
this procedure is called it is helpful to have a white or light
coloured background on the screen in the current picture.
FREQUENCY/PHASE
These adjustments, available for progressive signals and for
signals from PC, ensure correspondence between the number
of pixels making up the signal and the number of pixels making
up the projected image.
These parameters do not normally require adjustment because
the system checks the input signal and automatically sets the
most suitable values.
However, if the image appears disturbed (loss of position within
the equidistant vertical bands or instability and lack of
sharpness on the narrow vertical lines) it may help to prompt
the system to repeat the input signal analysis and determination
of the best parameters by calling the automatic adjustment
procedure with the AUTO key on the remote control or on the
keypad.
If the automatic procedure fails to have the required effect, enter
the frequency and phase values manually and approach the
screen sufficiently to observe the effects of the adjustments.
Y / C DELAY
In the case of Video and S-Video signals, it may be necessary
to correct horizontal colour misalignment within the projected
image. For a given video standard (e.g. PAL or NTSC) the stored
value does not normally require further fine-tuning, unless the
source or connection cable has changed.

Remove noise around image. Some sources can produce a
picture with noise along edges, thanks to the overscan function
it is possible to drop such imperfections outside the projected
area. The overscan value can be included between 0 (no
overscan) and 32 (maximum value). The image maintains in
any case the aspect.
