Image misalignment is most likely to occur with VGA signals in the 50Hz timing frequency range and
the less commonly used resolutions in the 60Hz timing frequency range.
a) When switching between VGA resolution signals that have timing frequencies (horizontal and vertical
frequency, vertical total) that are very similar, image misalignment may occur.
b) e.g., 1280×1024 60Hz change to 1400×1050 60Hz (adjust HSTART/VSTART/WIDTH/HEIGHT) back
to 1280×1024 60Hz (since the timing frequency is very near that of 1400×1050 60Hz, adjust
HSTART/VSTART/WIDTH/HEIGHT for 1280×1024 60Hz again to prevent image misalignment).
2. Depending on the signal type, SATURATION and HUE can only be set for YUV color space.
a) YUV is a color space typically used as part of a color image pipeline. Taking human perception into
account, YUV encodes a color image or video, allowing reduced bandwidth for chrominance
components. This typically masks transmission errors or compression artifacts more efficiently than
using a "direct" RGB-representation.
b) When the HDMI signal is transmitted under YCbCr422 color space (set from HDMI device itself),
Pacific C-A / C-AG will enable the SATURATION and HUE function in IMAGE PARAMETER menu. If
the HDMI signal is under YCbCr444 color space, the SATURATION and HUE functions will be
disabled.

Reference: The desired parameter level or value. This is the value relative to defined tolerances.
Review Room: A theater in which critical image decisions are made.
Theater: A facility in which a paying customer views the images.
The projector should be set-up and run according to the manufacturer’s specifications. For these
measurements, the projector must be turned on and allowed to stabilize for at least 20 minutes before any
measurements are taken. The room lights in the theater should be turned off (except for lighting provided for
safety reasons), in order to equal the normal theater operating conditions. The projector must receive
images defined by the X’Y’Z’ code values (refer to the next table; the last column when added up
corresponds to the “L” value of approximately 48.0).


For example, if the module’s input display timing is 1280×1024 @ 60Hz, then the panel width is
1280 and the panel height is 1024. The cropped window size must be greater than 256 (20% of
1280) × 204 (20% of 1024).
2.
Depending on the display resolution, a minimal change in the cropping parameters (Left/Top/Width/
Height) may not produce any noticeable effect.
It is highly recommended to set the displayed image to fill up the monitor’s whole screen (use the
monitor’s built-in display settings to fill the entire screen) to prevent black bar(s) from appearing after
cropping.
3.
Step 2. Click the Send Crop button to send the cropped image back to the Pacific C-A for it to be
displayed on the output monitor through the SDI OUT connector.
Image scaling methods may differ per different graphics cards in the market, causing a pixel or more to be
left on the screen (residue from the 4 green corners). Adjust the value of Left/Top/Width/Height, and then
click the Set button to fine-tune the display area for the residue to disappear.


Automatically selects a window or object to be cropped by clicking and dragging the
crosshair button onto the desired window/object to be cropped.
 Notice how the mouse cursor has become a crosshair. Continue to hold the mouse
button and move around the screen, 4 green corners and a violet rectangle will
surround the edge of the selected window/object. When the desired window has
been selected, release the left mouse button.

To do another screen crop, perform these steps once again.

To discard the area selected, click the Disable Crop button.
Step 3. Click the Disconnect button or close the ScreenCrop utility to disconnect the computer from the
Pacific C-A.

2.
Upon quitting ScreenCrop utility, the parameters (Left/Top/Width/Height) from the last crop were
stored through the Saved to Flash button or the Send Crop button, and will be automatically shown
upon the utility's next start-up.
If the current screen resolution is different than the last resolution, then the parameters for cropping will
need to be re-adjusted based on the new resolution upon restarting the ScreenCrop utility.
2.3.5 Cropped Instances Switching
ScreenCrop utility not only crops areas of interest, but it also allows for the selection of 2 separate
instances that can be switched accordingly. Perform the following steps to switch between 2 cropped
instances.
Step 1. Use the drop-down menu to select Instance One or Two, and then set cropping parameters.
Step 2. Switch between the 2 “Instances” by clicking the Switch Instance button.

This label can only be seen on the computer running the PacificConfig utility. Any remote computer
running the PacificConfig utility will only see the IP address listed in the Devices on Network window
without the label.
Upon attaching a label to a particular IP address, a text file will automatically be generated in the
Config folder of the computer where the PacificConfig.exe file was saved.
(e.g., 210.100.100.228.txt). A text-editing program can be used to edit the label in this text file. After
saving the changes, click the refresh button
to see the new label in the Devices on Network
window.
